First, an announcement!
Some of my older paintings will be on exhibit at the Art Elements Asian Gallery from August 17 to September 12, 2017. The gallery is on the 3rd level of SM Aura Premiere, Bonifacio Global City. Hope you can drop by! 🙂
Now back to our not-so-regularly scheduled obligatory art dump post, with feelings:
Sometimes — just sometimes — it’s quantity over quality.
I used to hate being told to, “Just keep making stuff,” because I never wanted to start anything unless everything was just *so*. Unless I could get it perfectly on the first go. But I get it now. In my reacquaintance to fanart, I’ve also reacquainted myself with, “just making stuff.”
I’ve started sketching again whenever I found my mind too busy, or my hands too idle. Regardless of whether it was something I could get perfectly. While none of these are anything I could sell or exhibit, drawing feels more comfortable now, in a way that it hasn’t in a long time.
I’ve been beating myself up because I fucked up three pieces from the sketch to the actual painting (including the portrait of Ninth /sobs hysterically), and while I am still really mad, it’s not as hard to try again as it used to be. So sometimes — just sometimes — it’s quantity over quality.
