Thank you for making the emphasis on resisting perfectionism!! This is a terrible habit I've grown over the years... and while many may think it's often a "good" thing, where you aim for high quality, it's been a VERY debilitating issue for me. I often was too scared to even pick up my pen, let alone make mistakes that were crucial for me to progress. I feel very behind at 30 because of allowing this mentality to hold me back... However, for the first time in a while, I'm enjoying the process! It forces me to slow down, make the mistakes, and move on! After watching the demo, I found my process much quicker. I used the general measuring technique and went from there. I notice my pen strokes were more confident and I'm getting comfortable with allowing things to just BE, instead of fiddling for hours trying to get it just "right". I even practiced a little bit with line weight. I hope it looks alright!
First step into this two week challenge! Tried for accuracy and building my patience/resilience. I've always struggled with working through frustration and perfectionism. However, during this, I found myself trying to "solve" the image like a puzzle, which helped a lot. Surely not perfect, but practice none the less! And what's nice is I usually learn at least SOMETHING, even if it's considered small. Very happy to complete this!
OOF. This was pretty difficult for me, especially the boots! My mind couldn't wrap around those laces (haha!), but it was such a good exercise. For the first time in a LONG time, I just let myself make the mistakes and go with the flow. I got into a meditative state and actually began enjoying the process! Excited to continue the course!
