NesteaDrinker 56 Posted March 1 Share Posted March 1 Celebration time! One year ago I introduced myself here and took up the challenge to deliberate practice art fundamentals for 800 hours in a year. Looking back the amount of hours I set for myself was quite unrealistic but here I am proud of myself announcing that I hit 500 hours mark! What I've learned about planning: - it is quite possible to plan out how many hours I'm going to put in a month... - ... but it is hard to predict your whole year - focusing on time spent of learning instead of 'I will finish project x by xyz' gives me better results overall and keeps me from burnout... - ... because the hard truth is when you are lnovice it is almost impossible to plan out when you are about to finish a project/chapter/ whatever - it is important to include some free time especially for your significant other when planning What I've finished this year: - finished drawabox (lesson7) - finished love life drawing begginer series - finished my first figuary - finished the head playlist (basics) - finished chapter 1 of the "Understanding and Painting the Head" course - finished drawing 20 asaro heads - finished drawing 20 simple lay ins - finished drawing 15 break downs using asaro method - finished the planes of the head chapter - finished drawing faces using Rheilly method - finished the advanced perspective chapter - finished half of the book 'How to draw' by Scott Roberston (including sketching and studying what I've learned) - finished half of the book 'How to render' by Scott Roberston (including sketching and studies) - finished Introduction to composition chapter - finished most of the Proko Figure Fundamentals (premium course) Plans for the future: - I'm going to plan my hours month by month - I really want to finish figure fundamentals and animal drawing fundamentals before moving on to shading and colour - hope to do really cool stuff in 2 yours from now ... and that's it!
