Girl Portrait Process - Keep pushing by MgcUsr Girl Portrait Process - Keep pushing by MgcUsr
It's frustrating when first 80% of the time you spend on a drawing your art looks bad, remember to just keep pushing.

So true! I remember when I learned to keep going until it looked good, best lesson I ever learned.

This is very encouraging! Ugly sketch to beautiful art. I usually quit when I have a not so beautiful start. Thanks for sharing!

I keep thinking "Man, I can't draw; this looks really bad", but then the longer I fuss, the better it looks. Took me a while to realise, as I always thought it is a waste of time working on something when it looks "bad"...

Wow, really beautifully done!
You Rock!

Hahaha I can relate so much to what you wrote. xD

Some of the first ones that became quite good for me, I spent around 24h-40h if not more to make.
It took me around a month to complete one painting.
I still never say that I'm talented.
I just point out that I'm tenacious as fak.

And whenever I talk about my paintings with people, I always direct their eyes to my flaws as a painter..
Because this is how my internal discussions looks like:
 
"Everyone said very nice things about my latest painting.
Yay! Celebration dance!"
Icon #3 - Dance Dean, dance! (Harlem Shake)
.... "But still"...
"Do it better next time!"
Here have your shit
"After I've passed out from straining my balls
by painting the latest one that is."
fall over

Oh my gosh I struggle with that so badly. I hate my drawing for most of it then it's not terrible at the end - glad I'm not the only one. Absolutely great process shots!

This process picture is awesome, even looking at these without any liguistic guidelines, it gives a clear picture of how art like this is done. :)

(I know the feeling btw, but even more frustrating is when you're about to finish, and then you notice a flawed proportion somewhere and wouldn't feel like to start over. XD However sometimes it's those flaws that make the picture look even more stylish - depends)

and how did you blend them all,
this is wizard level awesomeness O_O
