That practice thing they talk about

Yesterday I struggled like crazy with a sketch of a female for an art piece I’m working on. I knew what look I wanted but I couldn’t get it down on the paper. I dropped sketching for my project and just focused on cracking the code to drawing the female face. I’m still not where I intend to be. But I’m encouraged by the visible progress I’m making. Which goes to show that the practice practice practice thing they always talk about, is not all bullshit.

I bought the e-book version of this book: Incredible Comic Book Women: How to Draw Comic Book Women it was actually quite helpful.
