On of the hardest things to do is to draw someone yawning and then try not to yawn yourself. That and it was a long day. I realised that I am addicted to coffee. I am at the point where I can have two cups of coffee and then curl up under a blanket and take a nap. I may have to rethink this strategy.

It was very encouraging to see others promote my drawings, as opposed to the norm of my shameless self-promotion. Someone was shocked that I had only started drawing in November. What they didn’t realise is that I spend about an hour a day watching YouTube videos and researching how to draw better, then about another two drawing and doing drawing exercises. Most people do not think of art as a learned skill. It is not like being a wizard or the one, where you simply have the superpower and all you need is the confidence to use it. I really dislike shows that depict skills like that.

I don’t mean to rant, but I have great respect for those in this field who are very highly regarded, like the Hayao Miyazaki. I wished people realise that for every heavyweight like him, is a thousand inspiring to follow in his footsteps. It is like how everyone wants to be a black belt, but no one wants to work through being a yellow and green belt.

Anyways. Enough ranting and more drawing.
