Mermaid Inking and about my hiatus



Hello again, I think it's been about 5 months since I've been on DA or drawn anything for that matter. This mermaid inking was the last thing I drew before some really horrible things happened.

On the 28th of June I had to have my dog Jess put to sleep due to a mystery illness and then a month later my dog Stella had to be put to sleep due to stomach cancer, so to lose both so close together was completely devastating. I was then forced to go to court as a witness in August, which I can say was one of the worst experiences, that has caused me to lose all faith in the justice system. So I've been feeling overwhelmed and quite depressed lately, I haven't had any motivation to do anything but I really want to get back into art, it's helped me before and I'm hoping it will again.

I wanted to explain my absence because I didn’t want anyone to think I was ignoring them, I really appreciate all your comments, watches, faves and llamas and I promise to go through them all really soon.

Thank you,
Gem :heart:
