Lately, all I’ve been doing is learn Japanese and teach myself to draw the human figure. And that is why the images I’ve been posting have those elements to them — Japanese and simplifications of the human anatomy.
I’ve been active on lang-8, a language exchange platform. Native Japanese speakers have been kind enough to take time and correct my written exercises, for which I’m most grateful.
Above is another exercise that I decided not to publish on the platform. I thought, maybe it gets a little too much of the same thing since I derive my language learning from a book / workbook. Ergo, repetition is necessary. In fact, repetition is key. But I balked. And published it here instead!
I needed to re-learn how to write some kanjis anyway. It’s amazing how I easily forget. And typing them doesn’t help with recall at all.
So, the above probably sounds unnatural.
At this point, it is what it is. The take-away is I ingrained, or etched some kanjis in my memory.
Or so I hope. 🙂
