WARM UP |TIP23

You may still try, but your sketches are still not as good as usual. It may be too early morning, too late, too whatever, you won’t be able to know why. And you will give up. Some for a day, some for a week, other for month or forever. Your mind is often preoccupied by something you may think more important.

The idea is to regain your pleasure at drawing. That will drive you to regain your focus.

TIP 23 Get back your skills

Sketch like doodling something you see in front of you. Do not create, just copy roughly what you see. Keep a soft wrist, it will relax your hand, and lighten your brain. Just doodle without aiming performance. You will still get a minimum of results without thinking too much. Enough for your brain to slowly get more confidence. In few minutes, you will regain your motivation.
