The last 3 minutes of this video is a time compressed 30 minute training session of drawing an Elk. Prior to this, I cover how I transferred the proportions of my elk drawing to sketch paper, and then Bristol paper for the final drawing.
I also talk about the struggle I have with my art being "good enough". I'm trying to get past my perfectionist attitude and self-expectation. I've come to understand that I'm learning - and sharing the journey is the reason why I'm on YouTube.
Regardless, let me know what you think about your own struggle with getting past paralysis, caused by fear, induced by procrastination due to your own sense of art perfection. Am I right or not?
It seems to me that this issue is a common struggle among all artists as it's a common artist problem. Perhaps it's because, as an artist, the emotions carried in our creation are real and vivid.
I've read that Da Vinci took 15 years to work on Mona Lisa and even then he was still brooding over the painting when he reached his own breakthrough of his creation being "good enough."
I hope you find this video and my exploration of being "good enough" helpful in your own journey. It's a journey worth taking.
