Needless to say I had planned on excusing myself from creating anything. Then I got a burst of inspiration and so I decided to throw down a simple sketch using only a black pitt-pen (which I've been obsessed with using lately).
I really don't love this at all, but I feel like I need to draw this JUNK to make room for the Good stuff :). I will say that I like parts of it; the hair and the mouth. What it comes down to is the use of the pitt pen (leaving me with zero options for softening the eyes and making a more cohesive look) and the limbo between whimsical and real, that doesn't sit will with me.

Her smile is a little contagious isn't it?
How do you let the creative process rest and not stay up all night drawing and painting until you have something that makes you feel content? In other words how can I learn to be satisfied more with the process and less with the outcome? Is that possible?
