Your mind can be split into two parts. Logical and creative. You always want to be in your creative mind when you do something artistic. Say you want to draw a chair. You put it one paper, but your logical mind kicks in. "No! This does not look like a chair! I can't draw!" Your mind is focusing so much on what you want, you convince yourself you can't draw. Simply shut off your logical part and embrace your creativity. Everyone has an art style and by staying in your creative mind, you'll be more likely to find it.

I'm an impatient person, so I take the mistakes I make and turn it into something interesting. Straight lines too squiggly? Everything gets squiggly! And so on.

Once you get it in your head that no artist is a perfect artist, you stop needing to be a perfectionist and eventually learn that sometimes the mistakes you make really give the art character which helps to let it stand out and even be called good.

I only stop being a perfectionist when the drawing means nothing to me, like scribbles in margins. Art is effort. What you picture is your goal. it may take some erasing but when I'm done, the effort was worth it.

Don't get me wrong, I put a lot of effort into my work. But if I just can't get something to go right, I'll change the entire drawing if possible so that it IS right. Or I'll modify it so that it looks alright and fits in, if I can't change the drawing. To me a still life drawing looks a lot better cartoonized anyway.

But for me that goes ESPECIALLY for real life drawings. They're very hard for me and take a long time just to do the face. I want everything to look normal, and realistic. I also want it to appear the way it does in my head, which is always possible but happens with a lot of mistakes in the process. I can't change serious drawings because if I stray from that concept it feels like I've failed. They may not be perfect to anyone else but the one person I'm trying to impress and wow is myself. If everyone else likes it but I don't because it's not what I hoped then I feel like I've failed.

I continually impress myself by the creative spins I put on things.

Take my last still life, I had to draw a box as part of it, leaving an empty space with little more than texture. I cut open the box in my head and put a gremlin inside and people were impressed, but I was particularly pleased by how the gremlin came out.
