Hey guys!! I've had this question a lot so I thought I'd take the time and answer it for everyone. This is what works for me the best, how do you guys do it?
Like nearly 95% of all hobby artists, I procrastinate until it passes.
I've tried taking requests and commissions to help, but it doesn't work so good.
it works great
it's actually so curious the way the human mind works!
for me I kind of get my confidence back also when looking at some master's drawing/painting process, like yours or Feng Zhu's videos about concept design when he shows everything step by step
and it's like realizing all over again that the way they start their pieces is just as simple as the way I start mine, everything looks shapeless and messy and ugly at the beginning, and I am like 'hey this is actually not so impossible or difficult' and the sudden motivation to draw comes back again! haha
Thank you so much!! This truly helps me understand the reasoning and psychology behind "art blocks"!!
I always thought it was because I didn't know what to draw or had a lack of "inspiration"!
Now watching this video, I see that's not the issue at all!
Now that I know the source of the problem, I can treat it more easily! ^_^
I also use it as a place to measures of where I have come from
and this you just told us is exactly what i did a few months ago..i used to live with that for a long period, couldn't do anything else except for work, i had no interest or will to do art for myself, and i felt frustrated by that situation, like i wasn't going anywhere.
Also the piece is looking great! cant wait to see the 2nd video!
I had never thought of it like that! <3
