It always baffles me when artists can make drawings and paintings look like photographs. Some of the most realistic renderings of people, places and animals can be almost indistinguishable from their photographic counterparts. I can't fathom how their hands can take shadows, textures and color variations and translate them to canvas almost exactly the way the eye takes them in.
I've journaled on and off throughout my life, with some pretty cringe-worthy high school entries to show for it. Even when I've fallen out of the habit, I've always found the task itself to be more or less necessary.
