Still Workin' On It
WHEN YOU COPY, DRAW SLOWLY, CAREFULLY AND THINK
Yep, that's something I haven't been doing: drawing slowly, carefully and thoughtfully. My earlier lesson drawings were done at sub-snail speed, per this example...
I drew so slowly, that I'd get comments encouraging me to "work looser!" (You can see that my self-portrait was a lot less cute & cartoon-y, as well!)
Then, as my nightly drawing started to evaporate, I started hacking out drawings while I was eating breakfast.
Then, I just ended up doing those Father-Daughter doodles, which absolutely prohibits slow, deliberate drawing.
Bottom line: I'll have to slow myself down and work on my "lessons" when I can concentrate on them. I'll save the fast-n-furious stuff for Father-Daughter jam session.
