Motivation & Inspiration
I watched videos that promised to teach newbs how to find their style. I read articles. I didn’t even attempt the methods they suggested because I simply didn’t feel like they’d help. Ultimately it was cheat (by copying others) or do the long hard work of developing.
Rather than try those methods—I sat down last night and wrote down three attributes that I want in my art, specifically when drawing people.
I get asked about my creative process often. If I had to describe my process in two words, it would be “follow through.” Today I want to talk about what following through means for me in this season, and also, what it doesn’t mean.
In order to follow through, my creative process has 3 parts: idea, plan, and create. The process is not always smooth, nor is it linear. I tend to “go with the flow” to create my best work, but even that requires some preparation.
