When drawing is so frustrating

I’m being reminded about why I don’t draw much anymore today.

I know exactly what I wanted; I know what pose the character needs to be in, how the character looks like, what the porportions are, and yet I spend minute after minute etching on the same sheet of paper. Draw, erase, rinse and repeat; I just can’t ever get the drawing to look right, no matter how hard I try to correct myself. It makes me envy people who can “really” draw so much: what they put down on the paper is “it”, just the thing they wanted, no corrections needed, and here I am, spending an entire day on a picture and not getting any results.

I will never, ever admit that I’m “good” at drawing until I can get this terrible curse out of my way.
