Art is Hard


I've learned a lot from this painting. I learned that process is extremely important when trying to take on something of this size. I didn't plan ahead. I actually did the thumbnail about a year and a half ago and it was sitting in my folder so I decided I'd take it somewhere. I found though, that without proper planning I would often get stuck and not know what to do at times. It got frustrating at times. I will plan better with future paintings. Here's the thumbnail.

That's a lesson that I have had to learn and sometimes still need to learn again. Planning it out ahead of time can make the difference between making a deadline and missing it, or at least submitting work that you are pleased with as opposed to a piece you didn't have enough time to re-tool until it looked decent.

How do you live with yourself... Being so awesome and such.

I notice the same thing all the time. It's nice to work from a nice flushed out drawing. Where instead of fighting yourself, you aim to plus what's already there. Cool composition in this...I'd love to see more like em.
