Have you ever felt that you really
wanted to kick yourself in the face, but you knew it wasn't possible because your foot couldn't reach even past your thigh, much less your face?
I'm aware everyone probably sick of me 'beating myself up,(ಠ_ಠ I'm looking at you Harumaki-hime
) but this is pretty srs. I'm in those phases where I absolutely hate the way I draw. Yes, I can colour
, but in terms of my poses, hands, perspective, etc., it SUCKS. And don't tell me it doesn't, because I will brick you.
Anything I try to draw doesn't satisfy me, so I've been trying to improve myself specifically in those areas by studying other artwork/poses/manga. It's pretty tough, knowing that I probably wouldn't show improvement until months. For the WIP I posted up a few days ago, I forced myself to drop it. I may pick it up again and revise it later on, but for now, it won't be coming soon. I'll still be doing the collaboration with yu-nomii
(we're in the process of finalizing our ideas and starting our main sketch), but you probably won't see any deviations from me in weeks. I'm sorry. I just don't feel settled with looking at my deviations and cringing at all the mistakes and flaws. I've also noticed that in the past few months where I focused a lot on aesthetics, I have seem to lost the concept in my art along the way. Nowadays in my art, all you see is boys/girls sitiing or standing in a frame looking pretty, and it's really bothering me. It feels like a long time since I've put some thought
into an artwork. Really.
And for those reasons, I will go in a semi-Hiatus, meaning I won't be posting ANYTHING in quite a while. But the length of the Hiatus actually depends, if I feel my art is worthy enough to be put up on deviantART, I will post. That may take a week (hopefully, I'm not really taking this hiatus seriously), a month, and maybe more. I will still try to reply and comment on deviations and provide support, but that will be limited because I have chosen not to go on the internet so much this year (for personal reasons), however, if you ever need to talk to me
, note me your e-mail and I'll note you yours. We can talk there. C:
Thanks for reading and understanding~
