It would take centuries full of practice to just think about trying to draw gollum! I've been practining to draw portraits for about to years now I think and I won't give up that fast even though I sometimes just want to spin my drawing pad against the wall and give up drawing forever. When I just can't get a certain facial expression, shade or line. Then I'm like: But I can't look at my drawing pad without thinkg of an idea and then ... You know, it's just like I creep through my room, holding my pencil like a weapon and then - I have to draw. I'm afraid I'm addicted to it. Do you know this feeling?
yes of course i think every artist knows this feeeling yesterday it happened to me...i tried to do some new environment sketeches and i just had to stop and go to sleep because i drew so badly..tonight i'll attack again
