I'm slowly loosing interest in drawing, well not so much interest, but I used to be able to draw mainly every day and LOVE it. Now, I have days where I either don't feel like drawing at all, or I struggle with the actual drawing, whether it be a friends baby, or a celebrity. I struggle with the proportion and stuff sometime's and it get's annoying, and in the end I just say 'I give up', close my book and I won't draw for another couple of day's.

What motivates you guy's to keep drawing? Any tip's? Technique's? Anything that would possibly help me in any way. I'd appreciate all of your comment's greatly.

Heh..I can shoot the wind for a moment....

I'd say it's just good old fashioned ebb and flow. Just because you have a gift and you're doing what you were called to do doesn't mean you're incapable of feeling a little burn out every now and then. Sometimes you have a burning itch to draw and other times, that itch is good and scratched.

Hm yeah I guess. I do want to eventually sell some drawing's, I kind of am at the moment but I want to maybe start selling more. It's just drawing every day and actually feeling like drawing is the problem for me.

Anyway, anyone know if there is a specific mechanical pencil that's best for portrait drawing for small detail or is any mechanical pencil ok?

A vacation from art keeps me motivated...I have taken the whole year off from any productive artwork and I am loving it. Everybody needs to recharge their motivations from time to time so do not fret it, when it is time to paint again you will know.
