Going through one of those shitty low art moments. Everything I do seems to suck, everyone else is kicking ass. Oh well, been here before.
One for no reason; the other for a short story I'm writing for fun. It started of tracing paper with prismacolor, alcohol, and some acrylic paint. Anyway...

I need to do more human figures. I'm so bad at anatomy and skin tones. I've decided to do more. So how do I handle this? Hide the feet in sand, hide the hands in globs of color (they might be fists) and throw a mask on the guy. Wow, I'm learning already!
Seriously though, I need to work on this. All my fav artist have it down, Ian McCaig, Colin Fix, Dermot Power, Dan Milligan, The Black Frog (and a slew of others); it's always their characters I'm most impressed with. Usually there's a speed there, a looseness, and an amazing grasp of what needs to be there and what doesn't. I want that understanding. I want to be fast, I don't like spending more that a few hours at most on any one piece. I want the confidence in color and line and anatomy to do what they do, in my own way.
I'm so far off course, I honestly question if I can get there in my lifetime.
They journey continues.
