Q:what to do when you get artist's block?
I myself happen to follow a lot of fantastically talented artists—and I use ‘fantastically’ in the sense that they’re some crazy fantasy artists that do really great interpretations of alternate universes, dystopias, etc.—so I actually just scroll through my dashboard. I’d’ve posted this as a question for other artists to answer but—lo and behold—there’s a question limit (2) (did you know that? I didn’t), but I encourage anyone else to reblog this post and add their suggestions/solutions! (Also, maybe just take a break, read a good book, and recharge, or just go outside and live. Inspiration has to come from somewhere.)
things I do when I get artist’s block:
1) stare at other people’s works for hours
2) curl in a ball and cry
3) nothing else
Art evokes the mystery without which the world would not exist.
Q:You work is beautiful! I love the way you use color and shade, simply stunning. I might cry myself to sleep tonight.
It makes me so happy to hear this, especially since I’ve been sort of failing at Photoshop for a week already, and it turned my self esteem down quite a bit. IDK, sometimes I feel like no matter how hard I try, nothing good comes out of my pencils or digital tablet, and getting messages like this cheers me up to no end and gives me the motivation to try harder. <3
Another Doctor Who commission from Big Chief Studios and officially approved by the BBC! This is my long-awaited portrait of the Ninth Doctor, titled “The Parting of the Ways" - it’s meant to be a dually melancholy/hopeful piece, as it was inspired by both the triumphant scene in The Doctor Dances, as well as the bittersweet regeneration scene in The End of Time. Part of my official series!
