Every time I make a crappy drawing and feel disappointment – it’s because of the expectations. But sometimes when I am satisfied (even if the drawing is not perfect) – I’ve noticed that it’s because of the good planning of the practice time.
I feel that it is more important to focus on the quality of the process than on the quality of the outcome.
We can’t force the drawing to be better than it actually is, we can’t skip over the hours and weeks of work, but we always can make our practice better. And the perfect practice will eventually give the perfect results. It is very hard when a self-esteem depends on the results, it shouldn’t.
