Getting back into it

We moved into a new apartment and, for the first time in a while, I have a corner to call my own. I can put on some music (in this case, I have been binge-listening to Spotify's "Most Beautiful Songs in the World" playlist), bust out my tablet, and just go to town. 

I read this article and liked this quote, since it applies to me so well:

“Being upset that your first oil paintings aren’t turning out is almost rude in a way, because it is saying that you don’t think you need to put in the work to get your teacher’s results.”

Anyway. Taking this in mind, it occurred to me that I should be drawing/writing/etc every day instead of just "knowing I'm capable of more than what I'm producing" and maybe proving it by, you know, producing things in the first place.


Here is what I did.

Normally I draw in Corel Painter (Number), but I decided to give Sketchbook Pro a try for the first time in a while. All-in-all, I'm pretty happy with how it came out, which is rare.

I'll take it.
