I finally got it.

On October 11th, 10:51 PM, Sam (AKA "Mass Treble") finally learned how to $#@%ing draw. Up until this point, he had been holding and manipulating the pencil in the wrong way. While sketching in his Intermediate Drawing notebook, he once again drew attention to the blandness of his lines and the lack of expressive acuracy in his figures. Analyzing the work of several professionals and everything he did, epiphany struck him. He tested his new knowledge with a quick sketch of a woman's head that produced a "Wow. That's a really great face, and you did it so fast!" from an onlooker.

After filling the page with similiar rough figure studies in record-breaking time, Sam commented, "I am reborn!"

raiblu: I am teh proud of you!

Tis really inspiring seeing a fellow artist making a discovery, making progress... one step closer to the final goal! Or... something. o_o Congrats, keep on moving upward, ever upward... never reach a place where you can't get any better.

Iwant to see what you drew. X3

masstreble: The Very Boring Sketchbook.

I've filled about fifteen pages of a sketchbook, and you can really see last night's turning point. However, there isn't anything interesting in it. Just anatomy studies and an occasional object sketch -- it is a very boring sketchbook. I shall call it that, too: The Very Boring Sketchbook.

But what is the final goal?

masstreble: Ultimate goals,

That's a good question. The best questions are the hardest to answer.

I suppose my ultimate goal is the be the best artist there ever was and ever will be. Some would indicate that I am setting myself up for disapointment, but I say I am merely aiming high.

My secondary goal, and perhaps the more 'real' one, is that I would like to leave a legacy of making people happy, or at least make them think or feel.
