“You need to learn to crawl before you can walk” – Everyone

Was not inspired by the quote I received today “Rest is a weapon. – Jason Bourne”. Now is the time that I need to be moving and making things happen! And yet, when it was time for art, I wasn’t truly in the mood to do it, given all of the other tasks I needed to accomplish. I still put in over an hour watching, learning and attempting, to honor my 30 day goal. Sorry for the crappy image.

Maria,
You have inspired me. Believe it or not, when I was in college as an art major I was not taught half the “stuff” that is in these tutorials. It is a wonder that I did some figure drawings at all! My art professor had the class pick a famous artist from history to emulate. I did not know what I was doing. I ended up copying the figures exactly like the artist instead of trying to use his style. He would say my figures were stiff. I became discouraged even though I passed my courses. Sadly, I lost interest through the years. Maybe now I will get a sketch pad again (Nick through my easel away a very long time ago), and take up where I left off.
Keep up the good work and let your heart and imagination guide you!
Karen

Wow Karen, that does seem like an oversight! I watched a blog that also said that happens frequently though.
I would love to see your art! Try it out!!
Thanks for your kind words!
