Warmup of the Day! - MAY II by dCTb Warmup of the Day! - MAY II by dCTb

WuotD!MAY II



"The idea is to challenge myself as well as to keep me drawing no matter what; even if it's a sloppy 30second gesture drawing for the entire day. And every month, I'll put up another compilation piece like this one as I expect to see improvement which in turn should lead to even more motivation to draw!"

Its been harder to draw everyday but I'm just glad I'm still drawing after getting super depressed with my art earlier this month. And it's been a year since I started this whole thing and I don't exactly see much improvement but I have noticed lots of good changes and plenty of productivity!

Perhaps your improvement has been in something more subtle that's harder for you to notice -- such as your SPEED -- the amount of time it takes you to do a drawing or painting, yes? I'm sure you must be faster than you were a year ago, even if only by 10 or 15 minutes (and I suspect is probably a lot faster than that). But even if you are only 10 minutes faster at doing a drawing or painting now, that will add up over time at so much saved time... You might also be better at color theory now -- knowing what colors work together more so than you did last year. Or perhaps this year was about getting even more comfortable with your style, YOUR signature look. Be proud of yourself! We love your art work. I love that you put these up, they are one of the best things I get excited about in my watch list, because it's not these over perfect paintings, it makes me feel inspired to practice more like you.

You need to keep drawing, your art is really good, and not just really good, it's really really really good. I struggle to think of things to draw these days.

Seriously though, keep it up, your work motivates me and I'm sure it does the same for hundreds of other people on here. :)

I have so many excuses that prevent me from drawing. Mainly revolve around "holy crap I'm tired, this pen...so...so heavy. ugggghhhh...zzzzzZZZZZ." Because of this, I don't feel I have the right to criticize. But even so, I think you're art is fantastic and whatever flaws you see, to me they are minor. I don't know what your target skill is. I like your style.
