I'm sorry I haven't posted more - I have a lot of inspirations, but never really get my attention span together enough to post. But part of it is that I also feel stressed to post, as in I feel like the longer I wait, the more I have to rush, which gets me too stressed to feel inspired. And then the few pictures I do draw I get tired of quickly, feeling like they're not good enough to post.
But I just saw Kiki's Delivery Service (that Japanese movie with the witch girl and the black cat), and the moral hit me - don't let your passion become a chore. I'm pretty sure that that's what I've been doing - it's not like I'm uninspired, but it feels like such a chore to draw sometimes.
I have a question to ask anyone who sees this: how can I turn drawing fun again? Are you familiar with this tedium and have you overcome it?
Because I have a lot of ideas for things, including pictures, music, games, programs, etc, but I can't get my shift together while remaining unstressed. I want this to flow naturally so I can draw every day and have a ball doing it.
