We're all pretty bizarre..

Some of us are just better at hiding it, that's all.

Quite a lot of progress today, but I’m not happy with the details yet. I’ll finish it tomorrow!

This is what I don’t getYou’d see a drawing as good as this and the artist would be like “I don’t like it”And I’m standing there silent but thinking HOW CAN YOU NOT THAT’S FUCKING INSANE.


I can actually explain this.

You see, the person who drew something - in this case that’s me - has spent hours drawing a portrait from a reference. The reference is what I’m trying to achieve, and I know exactly which detail is where and how dark/light it is supposed to be. If I don’t see that in my drawing, I’m not satisfied. I want that detail to be like I’ve been seeing it, even if any possible audience won’t see the difference. I wouldn’t be happy if I didn’t add/change whatever is bothering me.

Could be my perfectionism, could be a general artist problem.. I’m not sure. But that’s what it is for me. :)
