I finally have time to myself this weekend. As an introvert, this time is important. Just time to be by myself. Time where I can do whatever I want. Time for me to recharge my batteries from the week.
It’s really nice out today so I’m wandering the streets of Lisbon. I sat at a cafe for a couple hours already. Just me drawing on my iPad with a piece of avocado toast.
I’ve been practicing drawing people for a bit now. I’m having a lot of fun with it but I’ve got a lot of practicing and learning to do. Getting the proportions right has probably been the biggest struggle. Between trying to find my own style too, it’s easy to be impatient. I expect it to flow out of my pencil so easily and naturally but I’m just not there yet.
I see other artists online and how easy they make it look. I have to remember that they’ve been drawing for years and I’m really just getting started. Improvement mindset! The more I draw, the better I should get. Of all the times I’ve said I would try drawing, this time it feels like it might stick!
Any aspiring or seasoned illustrators out there? Would love to connect.
