Struggling new artist
I have told myself many times that I would stick with drawing when I picked it back up again. I have always enjoyed drawing as a kid and even attended some art class over the summer a while back...too long ago to remember anything. But my motivation comes and goes, and each day it is something different. I want to hold a continous desire to learn and draw, but it seems as though I get nowhere. Each day when I would get done "practicing"...I would feel as though I had accomplished nothing and wasnt any better of an artist than I was before I first picked up my pencil. It felt as though I was just copying a picture that I had been told would help me improve something or another. Mabye its just that I dont know where to start or the best ways of progressing, but whatever it is, I hope that someone here can give me some direction and set me off on the right path. Thanks.
