I never know what to draw, which definitely proves to be a drag. This stemmed from having absolutely no idea where I was heading. A lot of the time I look at a blank piece of paper and cover it with ugly scribbles and then erase those ugly scribbles and draw more ugly scribbles until I reach the point where I crumple it up and toss it in the trash (and by scribbles I guess I do mean drawings, not actual scribbles...). What I should do is sit down and make a long list of people, places and things and just pick random items from said list and create a piece of art revolving around those topics, since going in with no idea of what I'm doing or where I want to go mostly results in failure and killed trees.


  1. I run into this problem all the time. Some time I get some real gems from just random doodles, but there are a lot of duds too. What I really need to do is then take the gems, or the duds, and develop them further. Too often I'm not interested in drawing anything twice.

    1. Yes, I was thinking the exact same thing the other day. Something along the lines of, "this has potential, if only I'd develop it further..." I too never really have any desire to draw something more than once in an attempt get it right. That is a mindset I really need to get out of since completely redrawing/reworking existing drawings seems to be important in any art industry to get the highest caliber of work possible. I guess I will just have to work at it. :d
