Sketching Observations
I’ve recently gotten into traditional after years of neglect. I’ve always been very digitally driven because of certain limitations. Some of that was warranted like postural issues and fatigue. The avoidance was mostly due to the abysmal results traditional brought me compared to digital which has mostly been due to anxiety and other emotional aspects. Upon the insistence of another artist who themselves have achieved quite good results and consistent traditional results, I spent some time these past 2 months drawing traditionally. Here are some of the things I learned.
1. It’s gonna suck, regardless of how hard you try, how slow or fast you go, how good your pencil or pen is. There will be a skill mismatch between your expectations and your output.
2. You will improve. Regardless of how much you think you won’t. It won’t be immediate but you will see improvements within the month.
3. Plow through a sketchbook. Reference art you like if you have no ideas.
