Frustrated

Thu Jan 25, 2018, 9:13 PM
    I know this happens to countless people all the time but damn... I was working on a digital art piece and now I can't find it. I've come to the conclusion that its lost or I never saved. I'm kind of pissed I had the whole outline worked and ready to go. I was going to do a higher quality and had an  anatomy fixed version of one of my traditional pieces. I had fixed the legs, face, and hands. Well I guess I have to start over. :/ Well anyway since that happened I'm going to work on a landscape via a tutorial. 
    The piece I wanted to work on:

I've definitely done it in writing on a computer. The term Save of Die comes to mind.

Never heard the term before. Makes sense, sometimes it's tough to remember.

I'm sorry to hear that ): You haven't found it yet? may it be on a different level, in the file of another drawing? 
who's the character, by the way? (:

And all you have about this character (or the other) is in your folder writing: WIP? or might I miss some reference sheet? (just asking for personal curiosity, I like to know about other people characters ^^)

I just started uploading all of my artwork starting in October so I haven't really had time to upload everything. I don't do character profile sheets. I've never been a fan of them, I like concept art though. I don't have a lot up for my writing as of now since I've encountered art theft in real life posting my art is kind of a step forwards to overcoming that burn. :/ So I've been dipping a toe. As for my story and stuff its kind of why I've had a hard time wanting to share much past needing help in certain areas. I'm still overcoming a lot of anxiety about it. So I will eventually get there though. I like world building the most I've decided. I want to be able to create my worlds in visible form too so I'm looking forward to learning digital art.

I see your point of view, I personally ike both since people like to express their characters with both of them; so I've no rpeference usually, but someimes sheets end up a little boring (?), I guess (dunno how better say it :/ )
Art thief? oh no, I'm sorry to hear that! you managed to win them or couldn't do anything against this thing? And what help you needed?
I like to hear that an artist does world building! ^^ It's one more chance to discuss about their worlds, and often this take to lots of ideas about mechanics, nature, etc... 
And I too would like to learn digital art, particularly for coloring, but I'm alzy and with not patient and time P: Hope you'll be good at it soon ^^

I guess for me it depends on the art sheet. I've seen some cool ones though.

In real life a now ex-friend erased my name on my picture and posted it to the school art board claiming it as their own, that was hard to prove it was mine. Since beack then we didn't have cellphones like we do know and selfies. I've also had teachers steal my art work and never received it back. One image I didn't even make for a class assignment and my teacher asked to borrow it and I never got it back. I'm not a fan of teachers either... I've had friends take my art and erase my name off of it for grades as well and for wanting to be popular. I'm not a very happy camper in this department. :/

For me there is too much to still do and finish up world building wise, and in some departments where I am finished I'm rushing to write it down after sitting on it for 20 years. (The too much is mostly world rules on magic, trying to tye up loose ends and such.)

lol No art skill happens over night so patience is definitely required :) I think its not so much lazy but lack of motivation/inspiration for some people. There is a difference, lazy is harsh, but motivation/inspiration maybe hard to acquire at times for some. Some people lack inspiration but have all the determination and motivation in the world, others have all the inspiration they could ever need (Me) ideas coming out the wazoo but we may lack experience to create it thus taking a hit to our motivation. I'm thinking if I can increase my skill sets that may go away for a time.

Wow, they're a lot of pretty bad and sad stories to listen. Never heard of some many from one single person, I'm sorry for what happened to you ): 
Once few companions add horns and mustache to one of my drawings, and I almost hit them, they didn't try it again. But something like what you described? never. I probably cannot understand what you might have assed throught, but I feel you, even if just a little. 

Yeah, it requires lots of time :/ and can be pretty boring sometimes. Funny that in the past authors didn't always feel the needs to do it, yet their worlds are very enjoyable even today.

Oh I see. Then I hope you find the time to practice and be more confident, so that your ideas can take body :D

I know it seems unbelievable but I got picked on a lot so its a no wonder why people did what they did. So I'm just guessing that was part of it. Teachers though, I'm not the only one who's lost art from an art class, my mom warned me about that after I lost a piece of art through a teacher. Yeah very prevalent in colleges from what my mom said. Teachers "borrowing works" they go missing and the following year they use it as a teaching aid. No when I see art as a teaching aid in class all I can think is who'd you steal that from... lol I'm pretty cynical on that front.

Some stories though are great because of the lack of world building. Some of these older authors just wrote some amazing stories from out of their heads. Take Never Ending Story that was never world built, and its a classic. Some times just going with the flow and making it up as you go makes for good stories. World building all the time is tedious. People these days are too critical of everything. If its not done this way or that its not good and such, but the truth is some of the best stories had little or no world building. For large projects like what I'm doing or what authors like Tolkien did it makes sense.

I hope so too, I'm working on it.
