(Since you need a core membership to post polls I'll just use the journal instead.)

Sometimes there can be an awful lot of silence and general absence between art uploads, and sometimes I've posted a few WIP's to show you that I'm alive and work is moving forward.
Which of these do you prefer?

:bulletpurple: Silence, then art - don't want to spoil the surprise. :bulletpurple:

:bulletgreen: WIPs, please - I like to see signs of life and art progress. :bulletgreen:

No need to motivate with an elaborate speech unless you really want to but I'd be interesting to see if you have a preference - option purple or option green. That way I'll know what to do more of/focus on in the future.


Loulin's Profile Picture
Louise Lindgren
Artist | Hobbyist | Traditional Art
I am mostly self taught and work with traditional mediums, pencil being my particular forte but I'm no stranger to watercolours and acrylics as well. Every new artwork is done with a varying sense of realism and a large portion of details. Progress is sometimes slow but always moving forward. It's my mission to always find something new or challenging in every new artwork.

To make art is to see and to tell stories. Sometimes the stories are connected - like my worldbuilding project with big bone headed beasts in the leading role - sometimes the artwork sings its song on its own. Whatever it may be, I hope my followers enjoy the stories being told.

Contact? Questions?
:bulletgreen: Note me

Happy birthday!May good luck be always with you!

Thank you very much for your kind words.
(I also hope for a little good luck for myself - unemployment is no fun)
bogatyrkhan Featured By Owner Apr 30, 2018
You are most welcome!
I am so sorry to hear that--that's quite ridiculous,such a talented artist is unemployed?!

Hi HO!

Long time no "see". It seems that we have both been quite silent here lately. Therefore I wanted to ask how things are going with you? Found any traces of new job? Or are you "free" like I was before? I myself have a job for a change. Not my area of expertise, or corresponding my education but at least I have something to do (and get salary). Been doing that about 5 months now.

How about your muse? I hope that my dynamic duo didn't exhausted you totally. I myself would have many of those DeepWood sin incarnations which I should finish but yet another project has taken the first priority. Talking about dividing my attention. Oh Noes!

Hi HO! :wave:

Long time no "see" indeed. I might be so far beyond "long time" that I might need to find a whole new vocabulary for it. It's good of you to send a poke like this, that way I might get off my ass as well (metaphorically at least). Things are... *scratches head* Well, things are... I really don't know to tell the truth. No sign of a job yet, which is super-exhausting. You'd think after plenty of years of work you'd be somewhat sought after for your valuable know-how and experience. The answer is surprisingly 'no'.

Feeling of "free" has not inserted itself. I'm more concerned with following the unemployment service's and unemployment funds' many rules. That and to keep moving. I noticed early that the sudden lack of work really affected my health. I got dizzy and sensation of weakness among other things, so there has been a lot of walking and swimming to counter it these past months.  (And looking for jobs of course)

My muse is pretty weak as well. It didn't bother me at the beginning but it's starting to now.  :grumpy:   I've still got my drawing pad on my desk and there is definitelly a thin layer of dust on it. 

But enough of my bleating. I'm happy that you have a job now. Nothing like those Euros dropping into your account by the end of the month. :) Aaaaannnd.... You upploaded a couple of new ones last month. I'll head over there now, see ya there.

You'd think after plenty of years of work you'd be somewhat sought after for your valuable know-how and experience...
Tell me about it! I have experienced the same exhausting situation. I sent dozens and dozens of job aplications during several years and what was the result. No job.  Few interviews, yes but no jobs. In my case the worst part was/is that there simply aren't jobs of my area of expertise and interest available in my home locality anymore. Even within the radius of about 150 km those are pretty scarce. On the other hand I have no desire whatsoever to move further away from here. Therefore, last autum,  I started to search jobs which aren't particularly suited for my experience, interest or education. And now I have a job. But it is no way near "a nice and interesting job". I wouldn't want to do it for the rest of my life!!!

Unemployment service rules can be quite bother I know. And here in Finland those were made more strict just a short while ago. There have been some uproar among the workers because of that and I too think that some of those new requirements are quite stupid. The so called  "Activity" -issue being the most heated topic, if by change that name has crossed even the Swedish news.

But let's hope that both job opportunities and your muse will cross your path. Nod

I am not surprised that workers are revolting a bit. The "activity"-issue over the pond might not be headlining news but that's only because we have our own problems with it. Stare  Same procedures only hiding behind new names and more complicated rules. Not to mention the Big-brother type of survailance that is practiced on the unemployed. Sure, you don't want people to cheat the system, but come on...  Encourage and help! Not beat and stomp on our self esteem, thank you. 

Besides that no job in sight so far but I'm actually starting to try out drawing again. And playing a bit with my maps, writing some basic regional history and whatnot, just to get into the mood again. And sketch practice too. One day there will be proper uploads again. :pray:
