I really need to do a lot of drawing. I mean, just drawing for drawing’s sake; playing around with line work, background and color schemes (as you see, above). There’s a little bit of a mental hump I have to get over, though, as I feel oddly anxious drawing something that’s NOT for a client. My initial feeling is that I’m wasting time, though I KNOW that’s not the case. On a deeper level I know it’s needful, if not mandatory.
So do any of you experience this? Do you find it difficult to spend much time on just making art to simply improve your art?
