Smash (my brain to pieces) Brothers

Fri Sep 19, 2014, 3:26 PM
  • Mood: Shame
  • Playing: Super Smash Bros for 3DS Demo
  • Drinking: Orange squash
I am reeeeeeeaaaaally not in an art mood right about now. I'm having massive trouble with my big piece that I'm still trying to get through, and nothing is very inspiring at the moment. No ideas for my own stories or anything. It's kind of depressing really. Having a day job is both rewarding in the way that I'm earning my own money now, and disheartening in the way that I get so darn tired after a day's work. 

Personally, I don't think there's any real effective way of tackling this current art depression. I'll have a go at random sketching, but sitting down and actually trying to improve things like anatomy, poses, and emotions frustrates me beyond reason. And any sort of animation is a definite NO. 

Hopefully something will come out of random sketching that I like, and maybe hopefully soon I'll actually get on with some of my ideas. I don't know. 

If I'm being honest though, over the past month, something in my head has been telling me that University was a waste of time and that I was never meant to be an artist. I only went to university in the first place to further a hobby that I started in school, which only started because I had few friends at school and who all had classes at different times to me, meaning I had a lot of time on my own. Sure, I'm good at drawing, but I'm hella slow with it and hardly inspired nowadays. Maybe, i've lost the creative knack I once had. Who knows. 

I'll get a sketch dump up in the next week, and I'll check out your artwork in the meantime too. 

Hope you guys are doing well :star:


On your forehead! HA!
