Laying Girl – #375 / 12.2.17
I talked a little bit last time about how I “gave up on art”. I didn’t really, just replaced my priority with streaming instead. I had a realization that streaming should be my priority in life. The reason being that my entire life, I’ve been playing video games and working with computers. My skillset is basically tooled for doing computer/video game related stuff. By making art my priority I was basically resetting my life’s work and starting from scratch. I also (thanks to my perfectionist nature) was pushing myself way too hard on art.
TLDR: I’m still doing art, but wayyyyyy more casually. I was pushing myself to study and learn way too fucking hard. Honestly, I could do it too, but I would have to give up gaming as it’s too much of a distraction for art.
It’s funny because as soon as I decided to do this, the art demons got a hold of me and I started sketching all kinds of stuff. Probably my subconscious is trying to steer me towards the stuff I actually want to draw and not homework. We’ll see where this takes me. I’m going to give it a month and then go from there.
