Crappy Sketching Days

Crappy sketching days.

I have beening checking out the "how-to" drawing vids on YouTube and I was feeling in a funk and after two days I was feeling like I had taken two steps back. The following pages are pages I did while watching the videos.

I figured that I was getting out of my "fun zone" and I was starting to take things a bit to seriously and this is the problem I get in to when I drop art for spans of time. I get frustrated and that takes all of the fun out of drawing.

I did find small packets of useful stuff those nights. Like in the first pic, the crouching figure actually came out with good proportions and size. I enjoyed that. Some of the general comic faces turned out okay. But I need practice and I am not sure that doing these sketches are helping. I need instruction and that is why I went to the videos. I need to stay focused and work on one thing and then use those skills to move on.
