Dont love your drawing!

I have heard this few times and I know I am suffering from this issue. Our class instructor told us yesterday that her instructor had told the same things to her class. And I realize that this is really a big issue with many beginner students and that includes me. I was a serious victim of this in past, but I have improved over it to some extent.

Once we get attached to our drawing, we start limiting ourselves, we stop experimenting. And may be we will stop seeing all the mistakes in our drawing. If you watch the same drawing after some time you will see the mistakes that you could not see at the time of drawing it. So attachment eventually slows our learning curve down. That's why it's really important that we dont get attached to our drawing. And that's the key to be fearless while drawing. And not getting attached will also help in being a very good critique for your own work.

so Dont Love Your Drawing!

Quick head exercise 3

Dont limit yourself :)

I have so much to improve in drawing eyes, especially in perpective and side views. Contour is not proper and they dont really look like they are sitting in the eye socket. First image proves that clearly.
