If you’re wondering why I don’t color my work often, it’s because the colors on my desktop are kinda off, so whenever I export my stuff, what looked good at first is suddenly over-saturated, among other issues.
However, I think I figured out a work-around that lets me check my progress on another computer, and tried it out using Sheps' Sheps (with some artistic liberties) as a test subject since she's drawn me a bazillion things.
Still got a few things to iron out with this method, but I like where it’s going!

Normally I try to refrain from adding chunks of text to posts on this blog, but what I’m about to discuss helped me TREMENDOUSLY with my art anxiety, and I’m hoping it can help those of you who have the same issue.
[[MORE]]
Immediately after summer break began, with the distractions of school removed, I fell into an art rut. For a full week I was able to accomplish almost nothing artistically. It wasn’t even like my brain was fried from school, even thinking about drawing filled with me with anxiety.
On Tuesday of this week, I discussed the issue with my therapist, and after a bit of questioning, she realized that the problem went much, much deeper — I was letting myself get destroyed by general feelings of inadequacy, which I had bottled up for years, born from me comparing myself to others in any field, art being the most prominent. I envied those who were prodigious and, on some subconscious level, I had convinced myself not being as skilled detracted my value as a person.
My therapist eventually put forth the idea that I associated people and their work, myself included, too closely — as if their identities were defined by their skill, not their passions — and suggested that I try to break this link. Learn to view people and their creations as separate things.
And it worked. Almost immediately after picking up my tablet pen hours later, my drawing anxiety vanished almost completely, and I drew without worry.
If you find yourself struggling with the same thing, comparing yourself to others in art, music, etc, try to break that association. Remind yourself that one’s work is not a measurement of their worth, yourself included. Just because you’re not the artist someone else is doesn’t make you less of a person.
Hope it helps ♥

So for some reason, last night I wondered to myself, “what if my current story project had an action game reboot?”

One of the assignments for my Motion Graphics class was to make a logo animation for ourselves.

I kinda went a little overboard

aaaaaaaaaAAAAAAA HELLO INFLUX OF NEW FOLLOWERS, WHEREVER YOU CAME FROM*
Sorry I’ve been inactive for a bit! I’ve been dealing with finals for this quarter (still am) and have had very little time to draw, if any. I plan to be drawin’ it up during break and then some, so here’s a Datsi that’s way too tall. Thank you for both your interest and patience! ❤︎

*I know exactly where all of you came from. Don’t try and hide it
