    Journey of 10,000 hrs.

    This is my sketch book which I am making a log of all my hrs spend drawing. I just kinda estimated that I'm at 500 hrs so I go on from there.

    Hours 500-504
    Some work out of "Drawing on the right side of the brain". Plus some random doodle tattoos. The one in ink was inspired by Fresca (which is a soft drink for anybody who doesn't know).

    Day 3

    Hours 509-512
    More work from drawing from the right side of the brain, which i have "completed". I like how the larger girl facing forward and the native man turned out. I'm still having problems with the cheek and jaw lines... especially in the 3/4 views. Going to have to do some more skull, facial muscle studies.

    Day 4

    Hour 513
    Tried some Andrew Loomis today. Specifically "Creative Illustration". Came up with these very rough composition sketches (for practice). They are from life (maybe another factor on why are so... terrible. lol) This book is pretty hard to get into, going to require a lot more composition sketches to get anywhere. Probably need to slow down on the reading and do more just drawing...

    Hi there.


    Sincere good luck in what you're about to undertake. Hope you can withstand all the hard times to come.

    This may be an unpopular thing to say, but I wish people would forget about Betty Edwards' book as a tool for learning how to draw. It would be different if I could find a single successful, professional artist praising her method as the answer for people trying to learn to draw. Blind contour drawings, frankly, are a tremendous waste of time. Anything that encourages people's conscious minds to be disengaged from what they're doing on the paper or canvas is a terrible approach, IMO.

    Anyhow enough of that. Good luck again, and I'll just throw in a suggestion to remember to learn the basics first. Master them, and you'll have the tools to move on. (Anatomy is not a basic; it's an advanced topic, as is color)

    Thinking connects desire with creation.
    How good are you?
