Ok, I’m not totally sure what you guys mean with “art block”. My understanding of it is more like “I lost the ability to draw” than “I don’t know what to draw” and the first option is probably the much worse one. I’ve heard that every artist’s going to get one from time to time and it’s a pretty natural thing. Well, it probably is as long as you don’t understand the phrase “from time to time” as LIKE THE EVERY DAMN WEEK.
It happens way too much recently. I’m seriously afraid of drawing sometimes, (because I don’t know how’s my freakin brane doing at this current moment and I may got easly pissed??) and it makes me sick (it concerns more drawing on paper, i feel a bit much more confident with digital drawing, but ,dude, tho!) I mean it fills me with this much of rage, sadness and desperation you can’t possibly imagine. And I don’t get it: one day I’m doodling stuff really good and I’m even proud of the results and the next day I can’t deal with simple things. It’s ridiculous. Well, I did name some possible reasons:
- I’m a too sentimental idiot and I care too much about things,
-school makes me too tired to work on stuff,
-I’m still a total noob and such stuff happens if you’re a noob,
-I’m listening to bad music while drawing,
why am I even writing this,
-I do not practice regularly.
I think the last option is the most possible one. I have a special notebook where i doodle things sometimes, but even though I take it always with me I don’t draw in public places (like school), ‘cause I feel extremely awkward with this.
My whole week looks pretty much like this: during school I’m thinking about stuff I’ll draw during weekend (I rarely draw during weeks). When the weekend comes I get an art block. Perfect.
So the thing, I guess, I should start doing is practice regularly. It’s and excelent opportunity to start using that awesome sketchbook I got for my birthday like 5 months ago instead of this old ass notebook. I haven’t used it yet, because I wanted firstly “level up” in art a bit. Though I think about doing some more neat sketches.
I think this post is a perfect example of solving problems through writing nonsense.
I hope it explains a lot, now you can unfollow me.
