HONESTLY, I love refs, but...
its the most bland and BORING thing to draw...LIKE EVER! I guess its cause I keep on compressing them in one sheet, and adding too much info to the point where I'm sick of it. I miss the feeling of being able to draw certain characters and seeing the passion I put into the piece, not to mention the organization tends to take the fun out of the drawing in the first place.
I'M DONE! LITERALLY PISSED OFF TO A CAPITAL P, mainly because I miss drawing my characters with the emotional feelings I get when I see them. yes, the ref sheet shows the different emotions but I mean come on, when I draw them, its not the same anymore, its pure frustration. I don't know whether I just need to relax, or I just need to literally stop drawing ref sheets since I'm so pissed of drawing them and the faces, and the outfits....
I'm starting to realize this organization pattern I'm doing isn't helping me at all. maybe I just need to draw certain poses, then another sheet for emotions, and another for outfits, instead of compressing them sooo much to the point where I want to punch a FLIPPIN WALL!( this time coloring them instead of being a lazy poop )
I honestly have more fun in focusing on one detail at a time, like when I first drew Jack's new hair,
this was the most relaxing drawing I ever drew in my life, and people up to today still like it...I'm starting to realize where my faults are...I mean I redrew Rokai, and guys, I was going to draw some body parts and the ref started to look cheesy, except for his bust "waist up" drawing I drew. I was more drawn to that,then then the details...so you know what, I erased them, stylized the "waist up" drawing (Can't remember what type of drawing it called to work with me), then when I was finished, I got a feeling I haven't gotten in a while...and that's coloring my drawings. SCREW what others are saying about organization, I'm sorry but...this is just my way of drawing, I can't be organized, it's literally making me loose my touch.
Curious to know, what do you guys think?
