Ever since I got my first wacom tablet, I've been trying to get used to drawing on it and it's been pretty difficult! I wanted to give up and just do what I am used to (use flat colors..) but I remember this one artist saying one only makes a great caricature after 650 attempts. Well it's not exactly a caricature and I haven't tried 650 times yet but this is about my 15th attempt at noodling around on a portrait and it gives me hope! I'm not looking at it like, "This is my master piece," but compared to the rest...I feel like I will keep noodling around and trying to understand more.
Wish me luck!
