Hum, I’m home from work and grabbing paper to start drawing and thought I’d talk about this for some reason…when I talk about working straight in ink and going through a lot of bad drawings to make one good one, and developing your confidence and line quality, this is what I’m talking about. These are just SOME of the bad drawings I went through to make this one http://rvsa.tumblr.com/post/81451421432 (I’m really not the sort of person who is ok with showing stuff I’m not happy with but this is my no.1 artaxe to grind so)

You get an image in your head and you gotta try to accept all the junk you have to produce that is literally just a natural consequence of slowly training your hand and brain to make the movements you want. Not by laboriously going over the same thing over and over until it becomes too warped inside your eye to even see it clearly, but by destroying and recreating it and knowing that each time makes you stronger, throwing away what you don’t need. The only art advice I’ve ever felt made a difference for me is that you must not be afraid to destroy it if it’s not working.

I sound a lot more sanguine about it than I really am (I have a real temper and this drives me crazy, let’s just say I spend a lot of time scrubbing ink off of my walls) but it’s really worth it to ride that horrible thing until maybe you’re lucky enough to teach your body something new and beautiful. Working like that is draining and eats through materials, but making a habit of it makes a real difference in your state of mind and hand that carries over when you work in other techniques.

I mean, at least for me, but I’m pretty fucked up
