I don't know if it was Matt Kohr (CRTL-Paint), Marco Bucci, Adam Duff or somone else, but they said something like "just SHOW UP each day" that really stuck with me. It was was supported with advice on building habits, practicing, just getting out your sketchbook or tools even if you don't use them, etc, but it was that core of work ethic that said you'll get there if you put in the effort, and all it needs to be is showing up each day - good and bad - the rest will come.
It's hard to choose the best one but the first that comes to mind is: "Originality is more concerned with sincerity than peculiarity" I would say that enjoying the process and having fun is a good lesson. Steven Zapata is a big fan of this one, it is also something I learned through experience.
Here's my entry for the challenge! I know it's supposed to be traditional but I don't have the necessary material to do it besides the pencil, I hope you guys enjoy it! It was really fun!
Hello everyone! Just registered for the new Proko website and I’m already loving it! I hope to be useful and bring something of value to the table! So as the title says I’m looking for the wisdom of the crowd. As many of you already know practice is as essential in drawing as it is in any other field. There’s a famous book called "Practice perfect". I’m sure many of you are already familiar with. In the first chapter it is stated that often focusing on small and intentional tasks can be of immense benefit to your progression. And it makes me wonder: What are in your opinion, the five (or less) most valuable things to focus your practice? Here’s mine: - Drawing simple form or "3D thinking" - Values - Gesture - Composition - Drawing from life Cheers and Happy practice!
