On kicking one's own butt

2017-09-28 15:02:59 by Vonschlippe

Hey lads!

Over a month ago I started getting really excited over the idea of making my own animations.

I started looking at tutorial videos, choosing the right software for the job, picked up a few books on animation and generally started informing myself on the process. I even started a few tests in Animate CC to get the juices flowing.

One point became cruelly obvious to me as the process went on: I am really, really rusty in drawing. At that point I had owned a Wacom tablet for almost 8 years and had not touched it in the past five. My pencil/paper game was almost non-existant, and drawing was frustrating at best due to my inability to achieve the results I knew I could have pulled off a few years ago.

I made the choice to fix the situation. The only way out of the hole I've dug myself into is to practice. Every fucking day, I'm setting aside at least an hour to create something. I gifted myself a Wacom MobileStudio 16, which I have been using regularly for the past two weeks.

I'm seeing daily progress; my understanding of light, color, anatomy and perspective is improving a little bit with every new practice session. I'm investing in myself for the first time in years, and that's a great feeling.

Cheers for practicing every day.
