a case for studies
WARNING: ART RELATED POST AHEAD. read at ye own risk:
"The problem with students today is that everybody procrastinates studies. Seriously. They go into assignments not really having planned anything out and having this constant stress.
Your body gets adrenaline when it’s under this pressure- and this is good, because adrenaline gives you focus. It also gives you these lines that have a lot of intent…simply because you have no choice. You rely on everything you’ve ever learned thus far, subconsciously…but there’s a downside. It kinda causes you to stay comfortable and so you don’t improve.
It also deconditions you as an artist and it gives you this stressed emotion simply at the thought of picking up a pencil and so it’s not fun. Drawing’s not fun anymore.
The secret to fixing this is just volume. You have to draw a lot of stupid, meaningless things before you can be good at anything.
Think of violinists. When you listen to them play together or improvise a piece, it sounds so natural, so flowing and smooth…but how did they get there? They had to sit down and practice riffs. Just over and over again, no matter how boring.
You have to sit down and do studies. Just a constant amount. Start churning out volumes and you’ll see what happens.”
