I realized last night that I didn't finish a new drawing in over 7 months. Last time I posted something was Wandering Spirit back in January.

I barely draw. And it's not because I don't have ideas. I do. I lack motivation and assurance. I see other artists on the different sites and instead of giving me that little boost and think that I can be as good as them. I lose my confidence and the interest in drawing. Or when I do actually draw, I'm not satisfied with what I'm doing and get frustrated.

Why is it so complicated sometimes?

Otherwise, last week I bought 2 new sketch books and some charcoal pencils. The first one is for graphite pencils (11"x14"). I needed a paper that was in-between my 2 other books. One that I have I find it too big, and the one I'm currently working with is not wide enough. Now the problem is solved. I only wish that I could transfer some of my WIPs on this one.

The second book is for charcoal pencils (9"x12"). It's really small, and I'll need to adjust myself when I try it out. It was the only size that was available in the Strathmore series. To go with the sketch book I got 3 pencil charcoals. Soft, medium and hard. I don't know this brand, but they were the only one with a thin tip, shape of a pencil and woodless. I'm excited at trying those out!
