also, found interesting hint in ps - applique filter can help 'take apart' image to simpler color smudges and it's easier to see key areas of painting, or photo as this reference

more levels - more detail
less - less

never thought of this before

having absolutely no idea what to draw
maybe the problem is in that i like to draw much stuff, dissipating much likewise, and seeing it as an obstacle to improve in specific areas like composition, anatomy, coloring, rendering, etc.
creative mojo depleted, :lol: roughly speaking
any advice?

Im in the same boat, but now I found out I like drawing girls. I browse through pinterest and find some pictures to study/replicate.
Try venturing out into different types of art (eg design, landscape painting, character design)
Heck, world building can keep you busy if you're interested in it.

for that purpose i browse this forum at most, watching not only references, but works of other artists it has something special to it, raw works, not polished, seeing creating process and stuff (even getting a feedback)

i scroll pin sometimes too, saving every picture i like, trying to organize studying material through folders, but distracting and don't really draw as a result

it seems i've got short attention span, in my everyday life also, and it is difficult when it comes to settle down and just develop some skills gradually and systematically
i like drawing as a process in the first place, because it helps to refine patience (which I so lack) as well, organize thoughts

in short words - improvise. adapt. overcome. :D
hallelujah to this wall of text ;)
and thanks for the attention

oh and, what with the world building, is it kind of metaphor? i didn't get it

like Star Wars universe, DC universe and others?
that'a a ton of work and related to drawing specifically quite indirectly

i struggle with of how to get the patience to constantly actually draw much (practive makes perfect), does not tire of it and advance, and combine all this with everyday's responsibilities also

thanks anyway

Now that's unexpected and touchingly. Can't say that i allow myself to lower my chin, just short-term self-reflection.

The funny part is, that hand was drawn in seconds, compared to other stuff.
I mean, it is represented only to explain ballerina's hand position
