The past couple of times I tried to draw on my Photoshop I failed at creating anything aesthetically appealing. I thought it was my Wacom tablet, it's only the Bamboo type [this year I should seriously try to upgrade my setup]. The small dimension you're supposed to use w/ the stylis/pen made me feel a little "caged." Therefore I tried drawing by hand. Despite feeling more in control of my lines I still failed to create anything good.
I started getting frustrated because a flood of beautiful, mentally captivating images have been pouring into my mind for the past few months. I've been dying to get them out. On top of that, I still need to crank out art requests from last year up to now.
I did some research as to any tips to help jumpstart my shit and came across an article that happened to be from dA. It made me realize one thing I used to do 24/7: sketch/practice/draw/make better use of too-serious classroom assignments. And the article I read made note of the many benefits of always keeping a notebook on your person for when those randomly marvelous ideas/inspirations come a'knocking on your window.
There are a couple of situations I need to fix before I even attempt to finish any more work:
1. acquire a bigger purse/hobo/bag - my current situation can't fit my coffee tumbler + purse + cellphone w/o looking like it will explode.
2. move when the impulse hits - write ideas, poems, etc. or doodles when they arrive.
3. take challenges, work on weaknesses - speaks for itself.
One good thing I do have to say is that I started picking up acrylic painting again, something that hasn't been done since high school. This is probably the one thing I've tried as of late that I have done a decent job at.
