The ongoing fight between me and my drawing ability continues. It’s never really been something that comes naturally to me but I made a vow last summer to start drawing every day and I’ve kept it since. I keep it varied by alternating between 30 second gesture sketches done on the computer with a tablet and head doodles/studies on paper with pencil. A lot of these were done while thinking about a particular character I’m animating in CG at the moment. I find it helps me explore ideas and think about the personality of who I’m trying to get across, so that feels useful and productive to me even if I’m rarely satisfied with the finished drawings.
