Oh yah, I know the feeling of being stuck sometimes and not feeling like making art because I'm not at the level I want to be at yet. 🙂 I suppose it's every artist's internal battle at some point.
I'm glad you could utilize some of that. I'm really looking forward to seeing more of your work. It would be cool to see your progress with this piece if you feel like sharing.
I forgot to mention that some of my early inner angst about finding a style was quieted by this forum. I've put up bunches of illustrations on here and asked for feedback like you're doing. It helped me develop a lot faster in the beginning (and continues to help me). I love that we can find honest feedback here and that people are willing to lend an eye to our art. Spending time offering feedback to others also helps.
@Lee-White Thanks, Lee. I am grateful to hear that.
Yes, taking the pressure off is necessary. I just wrote to Xin in this thread about how I feel it has to be perfect on the first go. So I've got to get more into the mindset of allowing myself to mess around with it.
Best wishes to you.
@Jake-Parker This episode was really helpful to me; I started it over later to take notes. This year, I did the most ambitious art project I've ever done, but I also started a full-time non-art related job and finding the time to make art has been tough. I really appreciate you guys talking about the downs as well as the ups. I really look forward to hearing about your plans for next year in the next episode!
Please upload your submissions to the January How To Fix Your Art Livestream here by January 1st. Post only finished pieces here. Anyone can submit work! CHANGE: Please create your own WIP posts if you would like to share your progress and get feedback as you create your illustration for the prompt (include WIP, the month, and HTFYA in the title to help others know the illustration is for this prompt).
@R-Fey-Realme thank you for asking! I had a very busy end of month on my work but had a minute to get a couple character design drawings done.
These might not be to noticeable on the image but as Ill do a couple illustrations for the novel it helps me have a nice guideline
@kayleenartlover A video game action platformer with rhythm elements is the plan. The goal to start with is Steam (PC), then if some kind of miracle occurs and there is demand there would be the option of porting to console.
