Third year of uni started this week. 

I sort’ve had one of those moments when you don’t even know if you want to draw anymore for the last few months, so I took a break. But now that I’m back and drawing again I feel like yeah, this is what I should be doing. I think I’m slowly learning to be patient with myself. I’m NOT going to be super great at drawing with minimal effort and maximum complaint. The only way it’s ever going to happen is if I put in the hardwork - and not be down on myself when things don’t look the way I want them to. It’ll happen one day. 

A lot of the time the thing that stops me from drawing is fear. Fear that it’s just not gonna be good enough, or look the way I want it to. But I’m sort’ve learning to put my faith in the process and just try and have fun with it. I’m trying to take the pressure off so I can just learn to love drawing again.

This was my final image for my editorial assignment. I might upload the full layout later. I also had a differently coloured version, that everyone but my teachers preferred. But they liked this one, and in the end I did too I think. Especially in context.

So, what do you do when you design a curvy character and your teacher says her calves are too big? :/
