My apologies once again for the lack of updates for a while. I ran into a bit of a snag with my personal growth in my artistic skill as of recently that has significantly affected my ability to draw something the precise way I've envisioned it. I have so many ideas and a very detailed and vivid vision for each of them, but because my skill isn't quite to that level yet, it has quite limited me as to what I can create right now. What I need especially right now is to learn to draw the male figure (right now my strongest ability is the female figure), and to learn to draw freely at different perspectives (top-down, bottom-up, and various poses). I thought about taking some drawing classes, but the big courses in my area or online are pretty expensive and a bit beyond my husband and I's price range right now, and more importantly there would be very likely time constraints due to set class times conflicting with my sometimes varying work schedule. So, to meet myself halfway and still be able to significantly develop my skill and ability as an artist, I decided to print out and utilize various tutorials I've found on pinterest and also to continue just drawing what I can draw right now of my ideas and learning by constant practice. I may also eventually invest in one of the smaller PDF-file manga drawing courses I found that is much more affordable for us at this time.
But, perhaps most importantly, I need to not let this lack of understanding stand in my way of doing what I love and what God has planned for me to do. So, to quote Matthew West, today is Day One for that.
Stay tuned for another Saint piece. This time I am planning to do my first digital piece in years. Please pray for me!
