One thing I do is watch other artists’ live drawing streams. Not edited or time-lapse, but live.
I like to do this because I see experienced, professional artists make mistakes .. and either incorporate a mistake into the work (à la Bob Ross’ “happy accidents”) .. or work out how to fix it.
We all make mistakes, and seeing professional artists deal with their mistakes helps throttle down the “I MUST GET IT RIGHT” mindset.
