So, I’ve decided that doodling is great and everything, but I’d really like to start growing as an artist. I’ve started working on different styles of drawing and trying to get a feel for a bit more realistic drawing than I have in times past. So far, I think I’ve done okay with the more Manga like art, but I still have a long ways to go on anything “realistic.” Hell, I’m not sure if realism is ever going to be a thing I can hope for.
I’m just going to keep on practicing.
My drawing is a seriously deep labor of love. It’s not a natural talent by any means, as is suggested by the fact that talented art students in fifth grade far outshine my artistic abilities. Still, it has always been something that my hands itch to do and my brain obsesses over.
They say that practice makes perfect, and so, I suppose that means if I spend enough time working on getting better as an artist then I eventually will.
It just might take me a bit longer than it does for more talented people I know.
ME AS A MANGA CHARACTER!
Don’t I look maniacal?
Not nearly enough to be realistic.
