I am fucked. I started drawing at 30 and am not a permabeg. I can make accurate copies, I know all the perspective rules by heart, and and sketch passably from life.
But I have never boredom sketched in my life, I can't even force myself to do it. Its been on my mind for a while because I know this lack shows in my line quality and overall asthetic sense. Everything I draw has some tinge of sterility.
I'm comfortable with my ability to study but I know if I can't doodle for fun I'm going to be fucked.
