Trying to getting back into the swing of things.


Chibi Hiatus?

So I went to this struggling artist councilling thing about my over-year-long-art-funk and the therapist [who's an artist who went through a lot of the same shit as me, dad dying in the middle of college and all that] suggested to just do playful, fun things with art for a while. That my serious work, and me taking it so seriously, is just stressing me to the point of creative drought.

So that's what I've been doing for the last month. And, because I'm me, I made a project out of it [but at least the project isn't stressing me out]
I'm drawing these chibis from my and Co's story about the Fausts and Nywborns.
I have over 50 of theses planned [50 different characters from the story x____x], and I've drawn 17 so far, and started colouring these 12 so far.

YEAH enjoy.

not much to show at the moment. i'll probably [meaning hopefully] have a few more things to throw up here in a few days or week, but this is it at the moment really. :/



[february 2010]

iiiiiii don't know what to do with myself anymore. feel completely empty; no inspiration, no motivation, can't seem to hold an interest in anything i work on. don't even feel i can draw as well as i used to. like i've lost talent or something.
even my drawing speed's dropped off, which is absurd with how slowly i drew in the first place.

that being said, here's the thing i spent pretty much all of february working on:

and then the second funeral pic finally finished after almost a year. though i still think they both need more work before i even think about colour or polish.
