I must confess to having a major self-discipline issue when it comes to drawing, especially when I have to draw something that I don't find particularly interesting for the sake of training. I know on a cognitive level that I will have to draw mundane, boring subject matter (e.g. still lifes of everyday objects) if I want to get better, but it's not as fun as drawing, say, dinosaurs.
instead of thinking about sketching, try holding a pencil in your hand for 5 minutes in front of a piece of paper thats what i do and usually works i am drawing in no time
So, I can't help but have these self-destructive feelings while I draw. Usually, it's some kind of sick feeling in my stomach, mostly caused by fear of making something that looks bad, or ugly. I know consciously that even making bad artwork is still a step towards progression, but mere knowledge doesn't stop those feelings from bubbling inside me and compulse me to not draw when I'm not feeling very positive about it.
Don't get me wrong; every day, I spare at the very least 15 minutes for drawing. But as someone who'd prefer to be able to consistently spare two hours at minimum, it's rather worrying.
It's just too bad that people can't just shut off their feelings like they could flip a switch. Would be nice to be able to only be self-critical AFTER a drawing has been made :/
