What do you do when you show significant improvement, but then the improvement starts deteriorating at an impossibly fast rate?? I've been practicing drawing every day for two months now, and I saw a great leap of improvement through the first month, but now in the second month, I can see it somehow getting...worst? I've watched technique videos, observed others, but I can't figure out what I'm doing wrong! How can I stop this problem?
one teacher told me that when you can see an improvement, that’s because you still suck. it’s easier to notice improvements when you’re still way below on the skill level, but once you get higher up, it will become less and less noticeable, until you won’t notice it anymore if you’re only comparing this month’s work and last month’s work— however, if you compare a year’s worth of work, you’ll totally see the difference.
that is to say, don’t get discouraged. keep at it and know that even though you can’t see an improvement right now, next year you may be able to see it.
another way to go about it is to stop drawing what it is you’re drawing and try drawing other things you still don’t know how to draw. for example, if you’ve been practicing drawing humans for the past two months and you’re fed up because you don’t see any improvement, take a break from it and try drawing animals. once you don’t see improvements in the animal, go back to the humans, or move on to vehicles, then environment, then plants. keep the subject fresh.
Send a number and I’ll draw my OC:
- In what they normally wear
- In what I’m currently wearing
- In a school uniform
- In swimwear
- In underwear
- With no clothes on
- In winter clothes
- In fancy clothes
- Making 3 different expressions
- Standing on their hands
- With their favorite animal
- Hanging out with a friend
- Sitting on the couch
- Doing something they don’t normally do
- Playing a sport
- Beaten up
- As a kid/adult
- Wearing a funny hat
can probably do a couple of these
