SO I wanted to ask a question to all the artists out there. When you draw is it relaxing for you? can you just sit back and let yourself get lost in it? or is drawing more like you need to really focus and concentrate and it’s taxing on you to do so and takes a lot of energy out of you. I’m part of the latter but I hear it’s different for everybody let me know what it’s like for you.
Highly depends on what I’m doing at the time.
If it’s a doodle or something I’m not trying to make perfect, tend to find it relaxing.
The moment I put the idea in my head that “this is work, so we gotta finish it ASAP, and it has to look nice and pretty”…that’s when drawing becomes more of a chore.
Though even then, you kinda just have to push on until you get rid of that annoyed feeling. Sometimes it is a matter of forcing yourself to work. I suggest you don’t force yourself all the time though.
