After writing my last journal, I promised myself I would avoid drawing fanart and focus on my original stuff more. That didn't work out so well, so I'm shifting gears. I'm not going to concern myself with originality right now. I've had a few commissions come my way that are based on existing characters, so I'm just going to go with that for now, and draw whatever comes to mind -- let my original characters simmer for a bit longer. It sucks, but screw it. We'll see what happens. :shrug:
I don't like how half of my gallery is fan-art. I wish I had some sort of....creative epiphany or something to be able to put all my characters to paper, but nothing seems to be happening. I don't seem to have a whole lot of inspiration nowadays.
I figure, though, that fan-art is at least better than a full on artists block. At the very least, it's practice. Bleh....
EDIT: That's not to say fan-art is a bad thing. I love it. I just wish I could put my OWN creations to paper.
