So just in the past four hours i have done two sketches =) I’m gunna try to continue doing at least one a day. Here’s one of them
So, i just spent about two hours on this. It’s the first sketch i have done not only this year, but also the first in over nine months. =) i’m quite happy with how it turned out. It’s of a good friend of mine actually.
I used to really be into art. I loved to sketch and sometimes i even liked the outcome of my hours of work. that was well over a year ago though. I just dont do it anymore. I always tell people i dont know why, but in truth i do. I have this friend who is a completely amazing artist. she’s won two awards in school. she’s my ‘best friend’ so i constantly see her work. It has discouraged me. My stuff is always shit compared to hers. i cant stand to look at my own work anymore because i always think it’s pathetic. Not to mention, last year in art class my teacher told me my art was wrong, and a few of the kids criticized pretty harshly… i really would love to draw and such again, but without compliments and people loving my work, i always hate it. Those few and far between compliments always pushed me to keep going… but that doesn’t happen anymore.. sigh
