Get Better At Drawing (Without Drawing Anything)
Art is a process.
Like that of the scientific method and philosophical alchemy, art can be refined and improved through process. From observation, to experiment, to reflection and conclusion, art is improved by the steps we make towards change, not solidification and stagnation. Much of the advice out there for drawing is simply “practice” or “avoid distractions”. This advice is good, but there is more to creation than just throwing yourself mindlessly into a task and avoiding bad habits along the way. Good habits and knowledge will help to excel your learning process faster, and from that, improve faster and more effectively.
Look at it
As an artist, observation is key. The skill we develop is not just seeing, but interpreting what we see, remembering what we have seen and recording it in the form of visual art. This is a skill that, aside from blindness or vision degradation, you will be able to improve during your entire life. The way of seeing from an art

RE: Are You An Artist?
Are you?
Do you find yourself awake late at night, upset that you haven't written anything that day, but don't seem to have any ideas?
Do you get frustrated, ask yourself “what's the point?” because you're not as good as that girl you watch who has perfect anatomy in every little sketch?
Do you slave over a sculpture, come back to it a few months later, and realize you hate it?
Do you have days where you just don't want to even think about your next set of photos, because you want some time to relax and clear your head?
But more important than those...
Despite all of the above, do you get back up and keep doing your art?
I've been through a proverbial hell, beating myself up for the times I don't "feel" like writing and I don't "feel" like a writer. Being an artist isn't about perfection. It's about accepting that you're going to fail (because you will), and that you will have days where you don't “feel” like an artist. It's about not giving up, and working h

I... I *think* Im actually going to draw something. D::

I received an "incomplete" in one of my college drawing classes for being unable to finish the assignments on time due to mental instability and unplanned family matters. If I had not have gotten the incomplete--I would have been on probation for student loans--and would have to retake the class (along with the other one I failed).

So I have until September 13, 2012 to complete 5 college level art projects--so brace yourself... Im actually going to give it my all! //after majoring in art for a year--I realized how many negative emotions I have towards creation and myself. It is a psychological hurdle I must overcome.

But I still need to plan what Im going to draw. ::T
Thats the hardest part.
