I feel that I am not making progress anymore. I have reread Loomis and Vilppu and Bridgeman, followed their advice and moved on to the next. Not only reading but copying examples, grabbing what helped me best. I have looked for tutorials, I have bothered friends and fellow artists, imitated styles, done gestures.
Throughout the last summer I did this and now I'm too fed up with this to think they're going to help anymore. They can't tell me anything new and I can't tell myself anything new either, feels like listening over and over the same tape and just nodding to it tiredly saying "I know."
This won't move forward.
I don't know if this is that I have changed my approach and instead of simply doing what I felt like I tried to fit in a learning scheme (it did feel like you made progress when you just let yourself go), or if I am actually not working hard enough to learn and fit into these schemes (after the third reread I don't feel at all like going on and quit easily. Again it feels like it's old news).
Probably both, hey. Either way I am not doing something right.
I know I can't hope for someone to guide me in the right way that suits me best, but I'd thank any kind of input that others have had through experience.
