Alright Sorry but Here’s an Update

Alright everybody, as some of you may care, i keep up with a daily sketch. That’s right everyday. Yesterday though. I didn’t complete one nor feel like drawing when i had the opportunity to do so. No reason why really, i had a great day just didn’t want to be forced to draw just to keep up with followers or “loyalty” to them. And that got me thinking… Why am i being pressured into doing a drawing everyday? Just for attention and popularity? I cant think of any other real reason besides it gets me to post more often then not. But ive taken the liberty upon myself to go ahead and change the “Daily Sketch” to “Fairly Regular Sketch”. Reasons being: I don’t want to have to draw everyday, i don’t feel like my art should be with the incentive of pleasing others,  and i dont want my art becoming meaningless and excessive  without time to work on things i truly enjoy or have projects for. Seriously though, I did some album art that i was really proud of for my buddy who produces dubstep, and no one gave it a second look. Not a big deal, maybe it was hideous. But i just thought id rant my two cents on how i felt and the reasons why im switching to the fairly regular sketch.

    You know what’s one of the biggest misconceptions I see in my daily life? That intelligence or talent are innate, something that you’re born with.

    While natural ability does matter to a degree, what’s more important is effort – how many hours you spend practicing something, and how hard you try when you do.

    I don’t think you should do a daily sketch if you don’t want to. But I don’t think doing sketches is just about popularity (which is a good thing, since it encourages you to do more) – it’s also about getting lots of practice in.

      Thats a good point. I would like to still sketch just to keep experimenting and try brainstorming and keep my mind active. But i think im still going to lighten up a bit vs everyday. Hence calling it the fairly regular sketch
