Every once in awhile a drawing comes along that I’m just not sure about… as in: Should I continue on and finish it? Or cut my losses and move on?
At present, it’s pretty much out of control: right on the edge of being overdone … perhaps even unsalvageable. I’m sure some would say it’s way past it’s sell-by date already, and is starting to stink up the place. They may be right. I don’t know.
Honestly, most of my drawings feel that way at some point during the process. I know I tend to go overboard with the ink. I don’t edit very well. In my zeal to capture the image in all its detail, I sometimes end up losing control of the drawing. Perhaps this time, preoccupation with a still-challenging technique has made this weakness more obvious.
Am I struggling? You bet. But it’s not a bad thing. I’ve been told that it’s not the “successes” you learn the most from, but the “failures”.
Hmmm. In that case, I guess I’ll press on and learn all I can. 😉
