…And I’m still awake, lol. wtf.
I may have worked on some comic strips for too long I forgot how much time had passed. ^^
It’s a shame that I haven’t posted much this week but the good news is, I’m grinding a whole lot for the past few days which means I can post more art on twitter and tumblr next week. (^人^)
There’s the comic commission which i got a bit stuck on in the last part but I managed to sort them out. I just need more references to get online for the backgrounds, haha.
I’m also nearly done with a….two year old, short Mirror! puppyshipping comic idea. It’s monochrome so it’s quick, haha but I’ve always wanted to finish that idea. (Will post the BTS of it here if I remember….)
Screw perfectionism! I started a comic with two characters,
Seto and Jou that I have difficulty drawing with.
I’m tired of procrastinating because of perfectionism and external approval. What did I even achieve compared to back when I was a big amateur in drawing but brimming with passion, enthusiasm and having no fucks to give?
Rin was right when she told me recently that I lost sight of what my reason was for drawing.
All that enthusiasm in my later art was drowned out because I ended up focusing too much on the technical aspect of something over letting loose and being fun.
Nothing wrong with wanting to improve. After all, those problems only came to me when I started being serious with art. But I ended up fixating on that. I don’t even think of the ship or characters in the art anymore, I kept focusing on what is wrong on the technical level.
Which is unfortunate. I ended up doing the opposite. I got so caught up with technicality that I lost a lot of my passion.
I realised eventually that it’s better to have flawed artworks and comics instead of not doing them at all for fear of them being “ugly” or imperfect.
Like, this mirror! puppy comic might have a lot of mistakes. The panelling might be off, the pacing too quick in one area, anatomy and proportion mistakes, etc..but that’s okay.
I’ll still post it because it’s better to post something that is not perfect instead of letting the ideas gather dust and not see the light of day.
I’ll never be perfect but I don’t want to waste all these ideas and headcanons.
I will definitely finish all our passion projects! ୧༼✿ ͡◕ д ◕͡ ༽୨
No more perfectionism procrastination!
Anyway, my lack of sleep is catching up as I type this, lol.
I’ll continue with my blabber tomorrow.
