There are days where I am reminded that sometimes it is a good thing to step out of your comfort zone. I was once told by Frankie Franco III that to get better at drawing, you need to draw outside your comfort zone. To push myself at things that can be uncomfortable. A big one for me is actually sketching in Photoshop. Still working on that one to be honest...
I've always been so intimidated by art tools. There are so many pens, pencils, markers and watercolors that I am so unfamiliar with. So finally one day I purchased a Pentel Pocket Brush Pen and started lining some old work with it. I actually went through old sketchbooks and lined old pencil drawings to get a feel for the pen. I really like it! Using the pen made me instantly want to try so many new mediums. I can't wait to continue learning new ways to create. That's what is so wonderful about art...you never stop learning!
