I was looking at older drawings and newer drawings. I've noticed I'm pressing the pencils too hard. Sure I now make the ground look more level and realistic, but just take a look at:

Zuolong salleei by EmperorDinobot which was done last week, and Therizinosaurus cheloniformis2 by EmperorDinobot which was done in '07 or '08. Can't remember. Sure I shouldn't compare çoz that therizinosaurus is one of the best dinosaurs I have ever drawn (despite the fact that it looks like it will tip over soon), and look at my Balaur vs Magyarosaurus crap. Doesn't it look like I need to go to art school? Aren't my dinosaurs turning out to be cartoony? I remember how I took down my sinocallipteryx one week after it was posted, because it just sucked. I knew it would give me trouble. I had begun drawing it two years ago, but never wanted to detail the perfect body çoz I knew I was gonna fuck it up with terrible feathering. Ugh.

Point is, I am not drawing as well as I used to. Sure, I do tend to draw while drunk, but....WTF is happening to me?

Perhaps you should go on a tangent and work out your emotional distress, I would almost guarantee your dinosaurs will come out better once you've vented.

No amount of screaming, venting, kicking walls in, blowing shit up, self destruction, cutting, etc. will make it better.

Cutting is for bitches. Don't ever cut yourself.
I think you need to work out your priorities mate.
Now is a good time for self evaluation.

Please try not to externalize your inner turmoil. It won't make anything better. I'll be coming for a visit as soon as I get the money together.

In this case, to express emotional pain physically. Don't do it. It's bad.

Sounds like it could be because you have a lot of weight on your shoulders and therefore that unfortunately affects your drawing quality.

That just shows that I'm a crappy artist. These are dinosaurs. There's no reason why my entire soul should go into one.
