The other day, one of my art professors said “what feels the best isn’t necessarily the best way to make a picture” and I completely disagree. If you’re fighting yourself, you’ll never win.
And I’m completely sick of the idea that there’s one “Good” way to make a picture/comic etc.
While drawing, I try to ask myself these questions:
- What makes this have value?
- What am I trying to convey in this and how can I make that clearer?
- If drawing isn’t fun, what can I do to make this engaging to me?
- Think back on WHY you set down the path to be an artist. You do have the potential to offer great things, but first you must realize and cultivate it!
Amazing advice. As someone that has burned out like a dwarf star with a meth habit, this is a great thing to keep in mind.
