    laziness

    how do u guys cope with laziness?

    i'm always telling myself to draw but the time comes, im too lazy to pick up the pencil. the sketchbook is there, the pencil is there but nothing happens...... damn i feel guilty and disappointed in myself.. and sometimes there is the fear of not being able to draw what u want to achieve or what u expect of yourself..

    Of course there is much more. I just don't have time for searching. If you know any other "laziness" threads, feel free to post some links

    Edit: Maybe we could even create a special forum section for this kind of stuff

    simple question, simple answer.. look for "insomania" on youtube.. the vids aleksi made of the event always manage to get me into a sketching frenzy.

    now.. if i only could get my scanner to work...

    You might also want to check out that "character ideation" DVD that's in the top banner. There's tonnes in there about not wanting to draw for fear of failure. As He says, it's just a sheet of paper, that can't hurt you. And no art police will come to your house to arrest you if you screw up. So the fear of just drawing is irrational.

    That still sticks with me - all of it. I expected to hear him talking about line quality and values and anatomy, but I was pleasantly surprised to hear him touching this subject so well.
