Use weed for coming up with ideas not executing them. Though I find coloring usually comes out better when I'm stoned but not the actual drawing process itsself
>tfw broke the cycle
How did I break the cycle? You ask? It may seem hard to believe, but it was quite easy. It didn't require a ton of convincing. It didn't require a ton of thinking. It didn't require a ton of energy either. It was much simpler than that. So simple in fact, it may seem hard to believe. So I don't expect you to believe me nor will I try to make you believe me. It is up to you whether or not you will want to believe such a thing. A thing that may or may not seem possible even within your own hands. That is to just draw. Take out some paper and a pencil and draw.

Not exclusively using one layer

Not. Gonna. Make it.
single layer painters are veterans, artists in the making should always use layers
>drawing self portrait
>wow loomis didnt teach me to construct ugly asymmetrical face goblins
at that point you need a teacher my pal
Wrong. Veterans should use multiple layers, and beginners should start with single layer. Actually, beginners should start with traditional instead if they can afford it.
>wasting your time with traditional when learning with digital is way quicker and cheaper
