oh my goodness! That's...wow I barely have patience to start over my drawings when I absolutely need to... If I made one mistake i'd be like, 'I NEED NEW MATERIAL'... lol but some people have to have the patience others lack yes?
yyeaah, Sometimes I can muster up patience, but sometimes (normally on really sucky days) I'm just like 'whatever' and end up failing so hard, cause I don't have the patience to stop and look at what i'm doing xD
Stopping and looking at your creation is so very important, because you don't want to continue making mistakes over and over. Now training your yourself to do that is another story altogether. It took me a good year to stop what I was doing and actually look at my project to see my next step even though I thought I new what it was going to be, and without stopping I found that I was usually wrong! Every artist was first an amateur! Just train yourself ever so often stop and study your piece, the more you do it the better your results will be. DON'T be in a hurry to complete!
considering I started drawing in grade school, from square heads to more reasonably shaped heads, I've slowly taught myself to look at things from a different perspective, and slowly got to where I am today, I've gotten more patience, and I love drawing. But it's those days that make you just not want to do it anymore that make you neglect what you've taught yourself.
I agree with that, then sometimes its better to pull away for a while, I have walked away from carving for weeks and that did seem to work but if you are creating in school well now that is a different situation altogether! Question! What makes you not want to do it or continue on those days?
