    Going backwards

    Hey all,
    I was wondering if you ever felt like, after not doing somthing for a long time,
    that you are going backwards?

    Recently I have tried to draw a chair, for many times..and it won't work..
    Like I can only draw from pictures and..quickies..when I try to draw
    a big chair by the negative space..it's a mess.
    But a few monthes ago it was easy for me..
    scary or I am just getting my-self too deep psychologicly?

    ..
    I promise to draw every day, and try to post everyday!(Changed)
    Being inspired by some of you guys,
    and thus decided to pick up my pencil everyday!

    I'll post any junk I make, in hopes of getting much
    constructive criticism and LEARN! (:

    It may take some time to get back where you were, but not as much as it took to get there in the first place.

    Every time you draw / paint, you improve.

    Its weird, sometimes if I do something hardcore for a while, then take some time off, when I come back to it, I'm better than when I stopped. This has definitely happened with music stuff. Like I'll just be unable to play something on the guitar and after practicing a bunch I only seem to only get marginally better at it. Then a week later I'll pick up the guitar and I'll be able to play whatever it was much more naturally. I suppose it's just mental digestion/restructuring time.

    I find with drawing and painting, if I don't do it for a while I loose the confidence I had built up previously and that seems to account for the initial stumbles when getting back into it.
