You know the deal, newest stuff at the top of the post. If you are interested in tracking the whole progress I suggest you choose the tag “Learning To Draw” on this blog, or use the links at the end of the post. You can find me on Polycount here (click for link). The past week I picked up digital drawing again, using Photoshop and my Intous 4 A4 o_o;
Awh, I need to write other posts than just these “Learning To Draw” themed ones, I know! But the past week I’ve had a bunch of real life stuff I needed to do. I’m starting my new job in Stockholm on the 15th of October, so this week was all about moving my stuff, travelling to Stockholm (I currently live in Malmö and for those of you who suck at Googling/geography we are talking about Sweden). Real life is interfering with my drawing mission right now. Been thinking on how to keep up with the drawing once I go back to working 8h/day like normal people. To me drawing is a hobby, and I got no intentions whatsoever to make a living out of my art. I’m doing this for me, I want to see how far I can push this artsy side of me.
I strongly believe a key to success is cementing good and healthy routines like going to bed in time, eating healthy and working out. To constantly iterate upon these habits and to mix it up with spontaneous things like parties and hanging out with friends. Time management is a very hard thing to do, but it’s not impossible. Simple, everyday routines are something many despise or dread, they don’t want to “feel trapped”. But I can tell you good, daily routines are vitally important to almost everyone’s well being. If the world for some reason turns into a dark place (if you lose someone you love or have an accident), firm, daily routines will help you getting back to normal life. There’s a reason people who experience really traumatic things should go back to work or school as soon as possible, it helps them recover faster. So never look down on routines or good habits. One day they might save your mind.
