Keep The Dream Alive - Ballpoint Pen Drawing (WIP)

in #art2 years ago

In the meantime of pursuing my dream of being a professional artist, I work tirelessly day in day out just to convince my doubters and critics that I can do it.


Being good is a process, it takes time and hard work. I still remember one quote that keeps me moving -

"nobody ever painted a masterpiece overnight but with time, hard work and perseverance, masterpieces are painted" .

I agree with that quote and that is so true but there is something special that is still missing. That is "BELIEVE". Only that believe can keep you moving. Believe makes you outsmart your previous records.


Believe makes you realize you can do it better than your before and even better than anybody else. When you believe and persevere, there is no limit to what you can achieve.

So for me, am keeping my dream alive and I will be working towards getting better with every new piece I lay my hands on.

Thank you.

Nicely done @maxwellmarcusart. Practice that is all anyone can do to hone their skills. One of the things I like about blue pen is sometimes you can see a bit more texturing. That is shown wonderfully.

We can be our own worst critics, but I think it's that drive to keep perfecting is what makes a great artist. They are never satisfied.

You were featured in week 62 of @pifc's Pay It Forward Curation Contest by @celinavisaez. @pifc is a Pay It Forward Community which believes in by helping others grow we build a stronger community.

Excellent work. Lovely details on the facial expression. But why does your model need glasses, if he's looking above them!? 😂

Congratulations on being featured by @celinavisaez on an entry for the Pay It Forward Contest**
