I find a lot more enjoyment from my art when I don't try so overly hard to do what isn't fun to me. I notice I enjoy the process of art when I'm allowed to be sketchy. Messy. Experimental. Doing clean line art is one of the reasons I used to hate the process of art. Especially extensive projects. It's why I'd delay so many pieces for years. After all this time I feel like I'm starting to understand what I like to do most. Work like this and this being an example. (Those as of posting this haven't been posted on NG yet but I'll get around to it lol) I think after my back started hurting and I was more determined to get a portable tablet (Which I would end up getting) and do art more in a position of comfort rather than "WORK TIME" sitting at a computer taking it really seriously, I have been able to discover that I really do enjoy turning sketchy works in to "real" works without going overboard to refine it to perfection. This is why I don't produce much work like this anymore. Before writing this I hadn't realized how long I been doing more "sketchy" works.
Anyway I feel a bit happier now as I am. I still hope to improve in ways but I want to find a balance of wanting to push myself a bit without trying to force myself to draw things I just don't wanna do.
Thanks to anyone who has stuck around and enjoyed my work. I can't guarantee I'll do it but if there's any subjects, things you'd like to see more of, comment it. Just curious what people would like.
