Need to doodle more

Latley I am trying to make some own designs and doodles. But it is something I find hard to do, I don't feel very confident when doodling. Actually I feel pretty embarresd to post this drawing. The reason I am posting this is because I want to show what I am doing. I think I need to doodle more to get an own taste and eye for things, draw from the real. Come to think about it, maybe I should make another blog where I can post my doodles and use this blog for the study's of principles.

Besides that I need to keep studying strong principles and hope they whil sink in.I did a lion because my last name (Leeuwe) means in Englesh Lion. Leeuwe is probarly a strange name for all you?

Nice drawing, Mitch. Your work is really getting impressive. Hope you're enjoying it and hope you keep it up!

Cute, cute, cute. Nice use of that "baby" construction. I can't wait for it to be inked!

Dear Sir, I just wanted to inform you that I posted my second analysis, this time on the work of Tim Schafer.

That is a nice drawing, Mr. Leeuwe.

Hey Mitch!

Wat leuk om een Nederlander tegen te komen die net als ik helemaal wild is van John K. & Spumco! Ik zag je comment op Nick Cross z'n blog en daarna je inks, die zien er erg goed uit man! Heb je al eens een animatie geinkt? Ik zet je blogs bij m'n favoriete animatie blogs! Misschien kunnen we ooit eens samenwerken!

Ik studeer op dit moment animatie op de Willem de Kooning Academie in Rotterdam, in het derde jaar alweer. Helaas zijn er bij mij in de klas weinig mensen die deze kant van de animatie op willen, veel 3D-ers en motion graphicers. Aan de ene kant scheelt het weer concurrentie, aan de andere kant zijn er dan weinig mensen waarmee ik kan samenwerken. Studeer jij ook animatie of ga je dat misschien nog doen?

This is a good doodle. I think you are right that you need to doodle more. However you seem to worried about making your doodles look good. It's ok to make bad doodles, you learn from your mistakes.

Thanks all. I really appreciate it. It helps me trying some more.

"I think you are right that you need to doodle more. However you seem to worried about making your doodles look good."

You are right, I'm to "afraid" to experiment. Need to loosen up.
