My 2nd Pencil Sketch: Seek The Truth

I remember the first time I had decided I would draw somebody, something on a paper properly. I was lying on my bed, thinking about learning new skill that day when suddenly I wondered why I did not inherit some of my uncles’ skills in arts, especially in drawing (I am pertaining to my uncles from my mother’s side: one is architect, and the other one  has a background in Graphic Arts). Then, I got paper and  Mongol pencil straightaway and did sketching. And boom! I surprised myself, discovered that I have some hidden talent in drawing. That moment lifted my self-confidence so much, and I realized that I really do know how to draw; I just did not take even a single step to do it, and a step to believe in myself before. I was always like that: wasting time and chances because of lack of self-esteem (Now, I am trying my best to manage that kind of bad attitude).

The picture above is my second pencil sketching using a mechanical pencil. That was the first proper sketching I had made, though. I know it is not beautiful in an artistic manner; I just uploaded it to remember one of those times I had found out a confidence to believe in myself, that I could do something as long as I teach myself to like it. And first times are worthy to remember, right?

Now, I am adoring and taking a great pleasure in the art of charcoal painting. Maybe, I will post my artworks soon, pretty or not, to see the progress of me in that field. I always thank God for making Arts exists.

(By the way, the meaning of the art is: Find God, not only in religion, but also in your life, especially in yourself.)
