A month or so back, I posted a sketch I did of a dragon. Well, I was looking at it the other day and realised... it was a bit rubbish. I kinda liked the general pose and design of the dragon, but the colour was very rushed, the details were... non existant... and it looked fuzzy and over saturated.
So, today I changed it! I gave it more of a story too. Much happier now... I dont know why I thought my previous one was finished, even for a sketch. I was in lazy mode obviously! Being lazy is something Im very good at, and its something I am trying to change, drawing wise. My laziness means I rarely finish a piece (unless Im getting paid for it of course) and it means I never really invest a great amount of time in something to get it right. So thats one of the things Im working on recently... patience. If you want to create something more substantial, you need patience. I reckon a lot of creating good work is having the patience to work at it, and not rush through it without thought of execution.
I could still do more to this piece, and probably will. But I always find by leaving it aside and coming back to it, I can see how to improve it easier. So we shall see what the future holds for it!
