Artistic frustration...
« on: December 18, 2003, 10:52:30 pm »
I hate it when this happens... I get all disatisfied with my drawing style, and I'll sit here and draw and draw and get so frustrated I wanna chew my pencil in half. That ever happen to anyone??

I guess I need some blast of inspiration or something... Maybe two weeks of vacation will help out ^_^

Anyhoo, enough ranting, I just wanted to vent a little  ':.'

(giggles) No problem, Justantine! I'm sure it happens to everyone at one time or another. I'm just getting back into drawing since June of this year! That was a long slump.

Take a break. Look at stuff on the internet or something that might pique your interest and give you inspiration. Or look at pictures or cards etc.

Most of all, don't push yourself if your body is saying "hold it!" for a spell. Nothing wrong with that.

Good luck!

Normally I just sit back and relax and don't look for insperation, every now and again I pick up a pecil and just sketch what ever comes into my head then see what happens from there
"Beyond the darkness is a door to the light,
A door to your soul...

When darkness falls
Allow the light of your heart to guide you

Hope burns brighter than any star
And will shine long after the last star dies"
