Anonymous asked: I think that you are wrong. Achieving right mood of a drawing does not simply happen over time. It is a conscious process based on how you keep on noticing new things and implementing them in your drawings. From what you're saying, I gather that all your efforts are not working, so maybe what you're doing already is not sufficient enough. Then why don't you try some new techiniques or change your drawing habits?
So what you’re trying to say is that I should try to work outside of my comfort zone, which, as it seems, isn’t even my comfort zone anymore? I guess I’m getting different results while working with traditional media, but lately I have trouble with concentrating on both anyway, so I guess that I should work on that issue as well (which I’m preparing myself to do so).
Anonymous asked: If you feel that your art is lacking something, why don't you do something about it?
That’s the most insightful thing I’ve heard! Why didn’t I think about it? Gosh Anon, you’re a lifesaver.
On a serious note, I keep drawing and I’m not even sure if what I produce is technically ok, even though I’m trying to get critique from various sources. I don’t think that I can do much about achieving the right mood, feeling and thought in a drawing, I assume it just… happens over time. I can keep on drawing, it might be technically ok but still soulless. It’s a matter of trying? But how long one can keep on trying without seeing satisfying results for a long time?
And I know that it’s a silly thing to worry about likes/notes etc. I do realize it’s a form of promoting the things we produce, to gain something from all this trial and error, so worrying about getting 10 notes on a drawing instead of 5k isn’t so stupid on the other hand. It must be saying something, if it’s not getting through to a larger audience.
i am so jealous of all the people who are comfortable with who they are physically and mentally
