Three months ago I was in a bad place. I was having trouble finishing drawings. I wrote about my feelings in the post “Finished. Not Perfect.” In that post about a bad drawing of Saitama from the Manga/Anime One Punch Man, I challenged myself to draw daily for 90 days and then re-draw Saitama. While I failed gloriously at the 90 day challenge (I didn’t draw anything from Christmas day until the end of January) I did re-draw Saitama today.
I’ve been drawing a lot the last two weeks, so this drawing came together pretty easily. I didn’t sweat it at all, honestly. From start to finish was only a little over an hour – this time includes wasted time getting my Surface Pro 4 to act right. That being said, I’m still not happy with it. Looking at the finished product gives me no joy – only hope. Hope that I’ll continue to improve. I’m looking forward to what the future brings. I have a lot of bad drawing to do so that I can get better. In three months, on May 23, 2017, I will revisit Saitama and check for progress.
Until then, here’s another finished but not perfect Saitama –
