"Your time is limited, so don't waste it living someone else's life. Don't be trapped by dogma - which is living with the results of other people's thinking. Don't let the noise of other's opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary." - Steve Jobs
Some nights, when i don't feel the most creative, i work on technique.
Found a photo i liked of Steve Jobs...
I use my trusty MICRON pens for a general outline. I'm not a big fan of erasers, except if i'm doing a pencil drawing, and even then - i try to limit my use. At first it's difficult but you'll find that as you practice more & gain confidence with drawing (if it's your thing!), it becomes more comfortable.
Besides, i really like seeing pencil (or pen) lines under the paint. I'm not a big fan of perfection either.
...add a little watercolour (one tone, in this case, blue)
...a little more detail & contrast
...and there you have it. Steve Jobs.
When i was younger, i used to think that working from a photo was cheating. Key word: younger. :-)
As I mature (giggle...), i'm taking Steve's advice & learning to follow the beat of my own drum.
(i certainly hope you are...)
