Stop me if you’ve heard this – “It’s doing the same thing over and over again expecting a different result.”
But I don’t know if that applies to practice.
If my goal is to draw a realistic picture of King Kong, the only way I can get better is to do the same thing over and over again so I can better appreciate all of his gestures, postures and facial expressions.
So I need to do the same thing over and over again – I need to keep drawing gorillas so I can eventually get to my goal of drawing King Kong.
I don’t expect a different result, I expect the result, but I’m going to keep trying over and over again until I get there, never giving up.
Not insanity, but maybe dedication.
