Found the Bump
Leave a reply
I found a bump to work aginst. There’s very little resistance to drawing people that I’m not familiar with. There’s no feeling of needing to adhere to accuracy when drawing a likeness of an individual that’s not going to be around to judge the final result. Unfortunately, there is resistance to drawing those I’m familiar with. Falling short is uncomfortable. I originally got back into drawing to do exactly this though… I wanted to be able to draw my friends, family, and acquaintances and do it preferably without embarrassing myself. The resistance tells me that it’s still important enough to want to do this well. The fact that I don’t feel deterred means that I just need to keep at it and spend more energy drawing those that are familiar to me. The challenge of the familiar will tighten up the accuracy.
