I've been struggling to get back into art lately. Finding the motivation to stay committed to it has been difficult in the past. I even put off making this thread. By having other people be aware of whether I am actually putting in effort or not, I hope that I can stay motivated. Any and all feedback is very welcome.

Day 28: I'm nearly finished with something. Here's a flower that I drew years ago and recently added a lot to.

Day 29:Koi fish on leaf netsuke
I grossly underestimated the amount of work this would take. By the end, I just wanted to get it over with.


The proportions were also very difficult to figure out, so there's probably a lot of inaccuracies.


Day 30


Day 31
I had a lot to do today and this is taking longer than I thought it would. All that's left is the shading.

Day 32: Shintoist priest netsuke
Took awhile. It's shorter than it should be.


Day 33
I started a drawing, but I want to catch up on some sleep.


Sweet dreams, sleep well.


Day 34
It's coming along, but there are some difficulties.

Day 35:Mouse carrying Daruma


Day 36
I started something. Tomorrow's Saturday, so I will get it done.


Day 37
I underestimated it. Maybe i'll do two things tomorrow.

Day 38: Snake netsuke
Here it is. I at least started the next one.


Day 39
The form is pretty complicated, but I think I nailed it. The hardest part is over.


Day 40
I worked a bit on it, but I had a busy day. I'm getting some real drawing pencils for the shading.

Day 41:Mice netsuke
I struggled with controlling the pencil.


Day 42
I started something pretty unusual, but I had a hectic day.


Day 43
The form is much more complex than I thought it would be, but I made good progress today.


Day 44
This drawing is actually hellish. Every single part is a struggle, but I've gotten through the hardest part. I'll definitely have to do more stuff like this.


Day 45
I'm on the final stretch ofthe shading. It's too late to finish it.


I can do it man!
This one >>4751 looks pretty cool. I now want the snail figurine in >>4736

Day 46:Princess Maker 2 Mercenary ending
It's finished. I don't know what the fuck happened. I thought this would be easier than what I usually do, but no. Every single part except the shading was a massive struggle. I had to trace over my first shape form with lamplight because the amount of erasing made the page too dark. The face and head was probably the hardest part, but the legs definitely weren't easy either. I tried my best since I like this game a lot.


pretty good


Day 47
I've started another ending. Hopefully it wont take as long.


Day 48
I have a lot on my plate right now, but I got something done.


Day 49
It's coming along.


Day 50
It's gonna take one more day. I've been swamped lately.


Day 52
I'm sick again and feel lost like shit. Hopefully i'll get back on track during May.


sick looking forward to summer


It's the end of the year which means crunch time. Need sleep.






















Seriously just wait until you've actually made something like just look at all these posts made of absolutely nothing


Just trying to keep up the momentum. If I keep posting the day number every day, it'll be a bit easier to get back into it when I get more time. Besides, I always sage.


This whole thread is really a psychological experiment in motivation and time management.


hey your drawings are really nice and it is really cool to see a record of your improvement! looking forward to seeing more in the future.
I know it might be hard to pick up a pencil sometimes, but here is a thing I heard somewhere - think of drawing not as making a finished product, but as a record of a series of thoughtful decisions, like an exercise, it’s a pursued skill. always carry a sketchbook with you and draw everything.
Also the end of the semester can be a hectic time. You got this. but no matter what keep drawing!


How's your drawing going? You haven't made an update in a while.

I'm back. The end of the year was tough and I was burnt out for a while. I'm going to start counting by the number of drawings because days clearly didn't work. Started this one two days ago and abandoned what I was working on a few months before. I only used a 4h and 4b, i'm done with number 2s.

good job anon
you're doing great and i'm not going to say i am better
but maybe focus more on how you draw
start building shades out of shapes instead of lines
it will make your drawings more lively


I tried looking that up online, but I couldn't find anything. Could you be more specific?

I still don't know what drawing shades with shapes means, but nevertheless, i'm happy with how something this elaborate turned out.
