This Year's New Resolutions (a bit late)

kawaiidaigakusei at 12:00AM, Feb. 6, 2017

At the start of the new year, I decided to make a couple resolutions. The first was that I am not going to buy any new clothes this year because I invested in a sewing machine because I plan to sew my own outfits from fabric.

The second resolution is a bit more related to art and webcomics–I have made a resolution to make an effort to draw more frequently. Between 2011-2013, I would draw on a daily basis for school. Drawing is a skill that gets better with practice, but after long breaks of not drawing, it almost feels like picking up a dusty book off an old shelf and trying to pick up where I last left off.

One thing I am glad about drawing is that I have reached a comfortable point in my own style and I have learned various techniques using software programs that picking up a pencil and digitally coloring is not that difficult to revisit.

The most difficult part of drawing on a daily basis is penciling in a time in my schedule that I can allow for drawing that I feel it is necessary to “make” a time in my daily schedule dedicated to art creation (ie. Wednesday Night, 6:30P-8:30P, Drawing Time). I am the kind of person who would much rather spend an evening curled up with a really good book or in front of a drafting table instead of a loud dance club with loud music.

Resolutions are meant to be beneficial in the long term, right?

Actually my resolution was not to focus on dating and just take it easy. That has been going well.

A couple of years ago I resolved not to make any New Years' resolutions any more, and I'm proud to say I've kept it so far. ;) But I'm trying to force myself to draw more nonetheless.

Excellent resolutions!

That's a good way to go! I think I'll force myself to draw more, or to digitally paint instead of draw...
