The magic trick to get yourself to draw every day
Allright, I've gone a full loop, now I'm trying to find ways to boost my drawing skills as efficiently as possible again, I've already figured out what it takes to boost my knowledge of how to draw things, but no matter how much I know how things should look, it means very little if I don't know how to draw it or don't even have any practice drawing things above a certain level of complexity.
This is the first part of a two parter, this here journal is meant to explain some of the basic psychological problems a lot of (if not most) artists struggle with in some detail; the second part will be a bit less deep list of special drawing exercises that can potentially skyrocket your drawing skills (these do exist, and they're not even that hard). Anyhow, this journal is pretty long, but it's also got a lot of important information. So to beginner and skilled artists alike, this should be worth the read even if it is this long.
As I've found out the hard way, just because you know how perspec

ANNOUNCEMENT: Glory of The Night Radio Show
I am starting a new radio show!
The show will focus on a special form of music that I call "night music". Usually trance, chillout, ambient and chillstep... a lot of tracks from these genres have a special property that makes them perfect for listening at night, that special ambiance of darkness, night sky, dreaming... This is what the show will focus on, celebrating the night and dreaming. All tracks will be carefully chosen to bring this mood to you. I will be playing both brony music and non-brony music, for added variety. There won't be any talking in the show so the night ambiance is not ruined - just pure music, except for the intro.
The intro features the awesome :iconlovelydreams14: (YouTube), voicing Princess Luna. She did an absolutely fantastic job, and I cannot thank her enough! In addition, the episodes will always be live mixed, unless I am unable to attend. After every episode, I will upload the whole mix to my

Hey bro I saw you favorited an old journal of mine on how to draw daily. Just wanted to let you know that I think the best journal I've made on the subject of learning to draw as well as getting yourself to draw daily is this one:…

You should probably check that out if you're struggling :D

Also, for 2 months now I've been drawing daily, and even if it's only been 30 minutes a day, I've improved by leaps and bounds! so don't be too worried about drawing too little at a time. Even if it's just 5-10 minutes, if you're drawing with the intent to improve, you will.

Thanks, really appreciate it. Sycra's video is also very useful.
