So, I'm Jake, and this is my very unscientific attempt to test the '10,000 hour rule' (It's also on tumblr at http://10000hourrule.com)
When I heard about the '10,000 hour rule' I was interested in being an artist, but I was struggling to draw every day and thought it might be an interesting challenge to try and log my hours. Partly because I thought it would be fun to see how well the theory lines up with reality, but mostly because I was lazy, and needed a goal. I started by working for an hour or so each day, when I could, and gradually worked my way up to doing it (as best I can) all of the time.
I'm not obsessed with the idea. I don't think that x amount of hours will magically make me good. Maybe it's a terrible idea... But I'm 4000+ hours in now, and it seems stupid to stop.
And, here's some links to various people talking/writing about the subject. They explain it all way better than I could.
Trisscar - Hey, thanks for dropping by, really appreciate it. Full body stuff sounds like it could be fun, I'll give it a shot.
Just tried colouring that key. Just have no idea where to start or how to approach it. I've slapped down some colours, but they're pretty off, and not sure how I should attack it.
Any pointers would be a huge help!!
Well this is where I got to with the study... Which I found out was michael jordan. Ooops, probably should've known that.
But yeah, here it is. I just get stuck at this point. I should really stick with it and keep at it, but... I. Am. Shattered. Might try and just dedicate a day to a single piece soon. That should help
Maybe tomorrow? Attachment 1289236
