The series: How do you get better at drawing?
Step Four: Practice More
- Like in anything, you will have good days and bad days. There will be times that you can draw anything and times that you can draw nothing. Recognize this ebb and flow. Draw new things when times are good. Draw in your comfort zone when things are tougher.
- Perfection varies. Even your own idea of perfection changes.
- Leave your drawing. Look at it later, it might be better than you think or you might see what's wrong later on.
- Everyone struggles, everyone has failures. The more you produce the easier it is to forget the bad ones.
- Know your weaknesses and work on them.
- The funny thing about practice is that it builds confidence and comfort. You just get comfortable because you do it all the time. Then, your confidence grows because your comfort level has resulted in you loosening up and making better marks.
