Line Draw + Background
Painting then Discouragement
On the left, I did a preliminary sketch.
On the right, I think my poor sense of human anatomy sucks or I just don’t know how to render light on skin very well…
Which brings to doing some basics!
Going to be drawing 30 days of thing while painting and see where it takes me. I really suck at digital painting!
I will finish what I started on top though, but not now.
Here is the first apple!
I will break this down later today with some further analysis from other people’s perspective and comparison to proper written foundation.
Not many people like working hard, but how does one like to work hard?
I believe that working hard on a task you love to do may make the task easier. Though, it doesn’t stop the exhaustion and the fatigue that tolls the body. Thus, we’ll be focusing on improving our stamina in working hard for the things we love to do.
I have recently realized this semester that working hard eventually become working easy.
There is a prerequisite: you must have work hard on a task beforehand.
I say this because we need it to “compare our difficulties” which should motivate us on future task we may be dealing with.
There may be a negative effect though, where as the task you may be working on may be harder than it seems to be. If so, think of it as a challenge and take it on anyway!
“Dai Gurren Lagann! WHO THE HELL DO YOU THINK I AM?!”
Moving on to a real example.
I love making manga, and I hope to make it as a career. Making a single comic page takes a considerable amount of time. It is tiring and exhausting.
Just recently, I took on a challenge. “15 paintings in 15 days”.
I failed that challenge. Miserably.
Please learn from each fail, and use that as a excuse to pick oneself up. It makes everything feel better rather than to continue dwelling on it.
Thus, I use the “15 paintings in 15 days” challenge as the most difficult thing I have done in my life. Would I do it again? Hell yea. But not after until I finish my first 15 paintings.
In conclusion, when I look at making a manga or comic page, I look at my hardest challenge, and all of a sudden… working hard on my manga… became so easy.
