    Hello! I just watched your second introduction video and when you said that I should spend time practicing and then doing something I love, I got confused. I’m interested in people and architecture but as a total beginner, I don’t know what to draw, or better yet, how to draw my favorite subject matter. How can I “not practice” my favorite subject matter to avoid constant practicing? Or is that something I can’t really avoid as a total beginner?

    Cheers!

    Aleksandar,

    You have to divide your time. Perhaps 50% of your drawing time should be about learning new drawing techniques and putting them into practice. The other 50% of your time should be working on finished drawings. Finished drawings of a subject matter that you love.

    If you only learn new techniques and constantly practice you never will create a finished portfolio of original work. All of your drawing will be about practicing a drawing technique. Does that makes sense?

    So yes practice, but not 100% of the time.
