How to beat procrastination (part 1)As I said on a previous submission, I'm planning to make some tutorials on the upcoming December. Before that, however, I feel like I can help on another subject, which comes before even starting your drawing: Procrastination. I mean, procrastination towards your own drawings.How to beat procrastination (part 1) by 365-DaysOfDoodles
If you're not familiar with this word:
pro-cras-ti-na-tion |prəˌkrastəˈnāSHən, prō-|
"the action of delaying or postponing something."
Why am I talking about this?
Well, a year ago I used to be a professional procrastinator. I've imposed the 365 Days of Doodles challenge to myself for this particular reason.
While procrastination is to some degree a natural phenomenon and can’t be completely eradicated, you can use the following strategies to get in the habit of getting drawings done.
Mind that these are not golden rules or such, just strategies that work fo
The name is Hana. Some things about me are in this list below:
-I love to Draw
-I LOVE Kingdom Hearts
-I LOVE VANITAS FROM KINGDOM HEARTS 8,DDDD
-I love Final Fantasy
-I watch Anime
-I read some Manga
-I read Doujins and Fanfics
-My policy is that i dont trace but i make an exception to certain parts (like stuff i want to digitze cause im still a noob)
-I'm easily approachable (and easy to become friends with...). However, I can't approach other people (One of my fears is people judging me just by a comment...). So, if you wanna talk to someone, I'm all ears...even if you're a stranger whom i have never talked to on DA...
More about me:
Although I may not do much Kingdom Hearts fanart anymore (I wish I did...), I still look up to Kingdom Hearts. Say what you want: flame me, sue me, whatever! Just know that my original drive for drawing came from this series. If you notice my older submissions in my gallery, you'll know that I had more KH stuff on the last 2 pages or so. I look back to the reference picture drawings I did. Sure, I get embarrassed by how strange my proportions were, but it just shows how much I improved within the last few years. Kingdom Hearts holds a special place in my heart; #1 video game and #1 drive for what I do.
As for when i draw, I compare my old works with today. It either shows how much i have improved or unimproved. It helps a lot. Artists that i look up to are Yoshitaka Amano, Tetsuya Nomura, Walt Disney, and Mark Crilley. My art style varies because of the many styles i want to try out. I am terrible at architecture-type art and city drawing but people is something i can do. I rarely take requests because i don't enjoy doing them. I usually do them for free and then people wind up losing it. So what's the point? My main style of art is traditional. i do try out the once-in-a-while digital but i need practice.
My lovely tools of art list:
-0.7 lead pencil (papermate)
-mars plastic eraser
-colorful pens of any brand
-sketchbooks or copy paper
-other stuff i dont remember
Unless it's a white lie, I condemn you for an eternity by becoming my slave if you lie to me.
