People confuse being fast sketching with loose sketching. Loose sketches typically look fast, but they are very deliberate in their openness.

That guy had too much blood to the head anyway, hanging upside down all day...

I too know I can draw, I've just let things slip recently and have only recently returned to the forum to try and gain that extra boost and mental attitude. At the minute, when I'm sketching, it'll take me a page or 2 to get into the 'zone' and start producing work that I'm proud of. But it leaves a pile of scraps that don't necessarily get thrown away but let me reflect. It's just the commitment to time of getting over the wall into the 'Michealangelo' zone and finishing with something that was in my head in the first place.

Good advice with changing of mediums and perhaps a selection of pounding techno music wouldn't go a miss either!
