Impatience

...and no endurance.

As I write this post, I'm watching a tumblr artist draw in a live stream. What I've learnt from watching is that I personally am a very impatient drawer. I'm not a bad drawer, I have an eye for detail, I'd also like to say that I have some base skill. But I could be better. Much better if only I actually practised. However, I don't. Why? I ask that myself all the time, and I keep telling myself I will start drawing something every day starting the next day. Just ten minutes every day. That's not too much to ask, is it?

It is... at least for me. I want instant success, I want it to look good but I don't have the patience. In my head, I know that I won't turn out masterpieces on the first try. Not even on the second or the third. But when it doesn't look good, I stop and re-doing isn't an option because I'm frustrated and fed up with my own drawing. I really have no endurance to look at my own work.

Now that I'm watching this artist though, I should keep at drawing even when I hate the drawing. I watched her redraw a hand for a good 5-10 minutes until she was satisfied with it. And she also erases and redraws lines quite often. It really shouldn't come as a surprise but actually seeing other people struggling with the same problems is extremely different from just hearing it said. And that goes for a lot of things.

I guess I feel inspired. Hopefully this inspiration will continue at least until tomorrow because it's really late and I'm tired.
