It’s easy to fall prey to impatience when it comes to progress, even more so when we begin comparing ourselves to other people. However, so long as you continue to practice, you will see improvements in your work and speed. It takes time to make noticeable improvements but they are being made.
As you continue to practice, neural pathways are being formed in your brain, making it easier to retrieve skills and work faster as time goes on. To ensure these connections are being formed you need to work at it, like you would a muscle. Each time you sit down to draw, you’re building upon your foundation of knowledge, reinforcing the pathways as you do.
However, as like building muscles, it takes time for your efforts to really show dividends whether that be in quality, speed or both. It’s easy to feel inferior when there are comparisons all around us, yet, know that as you continue to put pen to paper you are making progress and improving your skills. Don’t be too hard on yourself, especially at first, as these pathways take time to build. There is no deadline on improvement.
Remember that your brain is an amazingly flexible organ, with a great capacity for learning. Take your time to build those neural pathways in your brain. Trust in the process and soon enough you’ll have something to be proud of.
