So, what's special about today's self-portrait?
Sure, it's fairly well-drawn, I suppose. Yes, it bears a passing resemblance to me. It's better than some of the artworks that I've included in this project to this point.
The problem? It lacks life. This drawing is bland, at best. While I certainly don't hate this drawing, it's not what I was hoping for when I sat down with pen in hand.
This is yet another example of a concept I've spoken about before: each subsequent artwork will not always be better than the one before. Honestly, it can't be. How many people, in whatever task they're working on, will do a better job with each and every "next step"? The answer is simple: none. But we always want to try. I sure do, anyway.
Tomorrow will be better...
