The Dharkens: Family Dispute
+2
Between 2005 and the beginning of 2012 I went through a period where I had so many ideas that to get even a fraction of them on paper, I had sketch like mad and sacrifice some quality that I had in my work before.  Sometime after the beginning of 2012, I started to experience problems sketching though I was still getting ideas.  I wondered if like several other hobbies and interests, the sketching had simply run its course and I was no longer interested in it or the characters I had created.  That concern led to this sketch, so I still have the interest but there still some other elements involved that have me slowing even further when it comes to sketching and I definitely don't feel the drive to do it like I once did.  In truth, there are times I feel I get more out of watching something on TV than I do drawing and sharing work.  To answer Dani's question, I still love the characters I created.  It's just something else about me that seems broken somehow.

Most of this stuff is older than the last couple of years.  I don't draw anywhere near as much as I used to.

it's still good to see your works even if they are older :) I can understand that .

I don't completely understand why I don't draw as much any more.  The thought that occurs to me most often about it is I used to feel it was an imperative, something I had to do as if it was my only purpose to be here and it didn't matter if the result was a really scribbly sketch.  It was still an accomplishment.  Somewhere along the way, that changed.  I started not to care so much about the art and a lot more about the quality to where even what I would consider finished pieces were less of an accomplishment that just doing something as passive as watching a movie.  I'm still feeling like this but I've relaxed on the quality issue to where I don't care if what I upload are scribbly sketches with eraser crumbs and smears in the scans.

Thank you for your honesty. there is a quality level that I can understand especially since I have been messing around with some photography. out of countless shots I take I may keep only one or two. when others look at them they are always so supportive.

I guess I really want to get out even though I have many of the pieces of art that you have posted over the year or two you were really hitting it hard, I guess my message is if you were getting back into it, that is awesome, if not I support that choice to :).

I guess the old saying about an artist being their own worst critic is usually pretty true.

Thank you.  I'm still not entirely sure which side of that decision I'm on.

Very sorry to hear the loss of the muse. They can be fickle little fuckers, can't they? As you said, artists are their own worst critics.
It bummed me out when you had to take a break, though I understood. better to break away for some 'me time' than push yourself and burn out.
I'm glad you're posting stuff again -even the older stuff, you always had a cool style, and although I'm bad about faving work, I always liked your stuff, even the sketchy stuff.
