Secret Livestreams (semi secret - secret lite if you will.)

It's no secret that I've been trying to relearn how to draw.  Thanks to many people's help, I have made some signifigent progress (I believe).  

I have been doing livestreams with folks and just basically having them tell me what to draw.  I haven't been advertising them because I didn't want to hurt anyone's feelings (aka, I owe people art and I haven't delievered - I don't want to have them see me drawing something for someone else and making it look like I don't care about them, cause I do.).

I have found that it is much easier to stay on task with the person I am drawing for watching.  It's also a more intimate setting (privacy allows them to make requests that they may otherwise feel uncomfortable with in a larger group setting).

Since this is working out very well, I am going to continue to do it.

I wish I could just set down and finish everything I've started.  I feel terrible that I can't.  I am willing to put in the time and effort to make this right - I want to be a good artist, and I want to make good on what I've said I will do.

I've neglected my commenting to do this, but I feel it is a good trade off.  I don't feel comfortable commenting on people's stuff when I myself should be drawing.  

...and, I guess that's it.  If you have any questions, PM me.  

I am now going to find some fruit and eat it - cause I need to eat.

I'm glad to hear that these streams have been helping.  Sometimes, you just have to step back, get back into the swing of things in a calm, relaxed environment, then you can offer those you owe a much better product than they would have gotten initially.

If I were one of them, well, I'd be happy about that in the end.

I ran into this same sort of problem a couple of years ago.  Try not to feel too bad about taking a long time to do stuff.  It happens.  I think the key is to keep working, even if you can't tackle everything as quickly as you like. You don't have to keep your nose to the grindstone, but keeping your pinky toe there can help you move forward.  And making some spontaneous art for yourself helps break up the stress of feeling like everything you draw is being judged.

When I had this problem before I took this long break, and wouldn't you know it, the stuff just never got done.  I had to learn to keep my breaks reasonable, and to get back on task even when I don't feel quite up to it.  Usually once I start working again, I feel better.   I don't know if livestream would work well for me, it seems I work best when I can ignore the presence of everyone around me, and that seems almost like the antithesis to that.  Though I suppose having something like a cheerleading squad might help boost my confidence, unfortunately, that might get distracting.  Heheh.  X3

Sure, count me in!  I'll bring the cheese and crackers if someone else can handle the drinks.
