"Very few possess true artistic ability. It is therefore both unseemly and unproductive to irritate the situation by making an effort.
If you have a burning, restless urge to write or paint, simply eat something sweet and the feeling will pass."
Wait for an inspiration
The mood is just not right today. Sure, you could pick up a pencil, sit down and push yourself to practice but the result would probably end up in a trash can. Waste of time, waste of material. Besides, the guy that commissioned you two months ago found a professional for the work already.
Expect the success to happen quickly
A year or two, tops, that's all it takes to build a reputation. Being an artist isn't a job like any other, therefore you don't need to work on it every day. No need for

✿ Watercolor Equipment
Watercolor is a painting technique in which the paints are made of pigments suspended in a water-soluble binder. Usually, the result is transparent and appear luminous because the pigments are laid down in a relatively pure form with a few fillers obscuring the pigment color. This medium was never taken as seriously as "high art" techniques such as oil painting and was rather seen as pale and miniaturist, but it's gradually reclaiming it's place as a vehicle for the most beautiful and unexpected artistic expression.

You are well-aware of the importance of this project, in fact you can't wait to get to it! Too bad you promised your friends to go for a drink, and then there's that movie. Also, your productivity is at its strongest at Midnight, first Tuesday after the Full Moon, starting earlier would be a waste of time. Make sure you are well-rested! After all, is there a better way to prepare yourself for a productive tomorrow than an enjoyable today?
Your diagnosis: Procrastination positive.
"Someday is not a day of the week."

A year ago liransz and I collaborated in our work TECHNIFICATION mixing her dark dolls style with my dark cybernetics biomechanicals and we loved the results, we thought that it was so strong and that we should explore a bit more that path, that way born Sugarflesh a therm that mix well the two concepts we want to explore, cuteness/romanticism - dark/biomech.
We would like to find our propper path and that you enjoy our works.

Quality isn't so great! It definitely needs some work But it's a start!
You can keep up with this stuff as it happens over on my tumblr! But it has lots of other junk like me ranting about my ongoing battle with a mysterious anon neighbour who keeps complaining to the council about my cockerel, and stories about my other pets. It's a very loosey juicy goosey place that I relax in, like a comfy sofa. It's my comfy sofa blog.

Awwwww!!! OMG!I was on Furcadia and I suddenly heard my sister yelling Snowtiger's name in distress, so I tell RedFox199 to hold on for a second and rush out to see a slight movement on the fence of my backyard. One it to the right, and the other to the left, I can tell the one to the left is Snowtiger because it's tall and thin ((And not to mention sexy! LOL JKJKJKJKJK!!)) and the other is short. I remember that my Mom got a flashlight from Office Depot for my trip to Assateague. I bring it out and quickly rip the cardboard off and point it at the strange shadow in the right, it is not a cat, but a possum! It was super cuuuttee!! I saw it's eyes glowing and everything! My sister then came out with her camera and tried catching a picture of it. We just barely got it, like, it wasn't running away or anything, it was staying right in its spot, but the lighting was really bad. We still got a good shot though!Awwwww!!!
