I tend to draw what I feel like . . . landscapes, creepy pictures, abstract, animals, and sometimes fanart. All of my work is traditional, and I tend to use Prismacolor or ink (or both).

My faves are really random . . . I'll fave pretty much anything I like. I like a LOT of different kinds of art, although I usually am drawn (bad pun XD) to traditional work.

Activity


This thread has probably been made 1000 times and will be ignored, so... here goes.

I have a goal of completing one drawing a week (I don't post them here only because the app no longer works on my phone so I can't. Atm I'm only able to post them on facebook). I work part-time, 25 hours (5 5 hour days), so this should be easy. It's not like I don't have the time.

But NO. It is SO HARD to remain motivated and it's at the point where I feel like I need to take a break. I always kind of experience this at the end of a Big Project (usually a series or a larger drawing) and end up just posting portraits because I need to practice them (even though I don't really like doing portraits). I just can't stay inspired and just want to watch anime, read, or play video games instead. But I force myself to sit down at my desk and try to draw something, then end up scrolling through facebook or something stupid like that.

Does anyone else have this problem, and if so, how do you combat it? Does this mean art really isn't my passion? It's not like I'm making money off it now, but I want to do so eventually... Why do I have to FORCE myself to do something I'm supposed to love doing for an average of less than 10 hours a week?

I didn't post on Help With Life because I feel this is an issue, but not something that is totally ruining my life or depressing me. It just bothers me and I know other artists struggle with inspiration and motivation. If it needs to be moved just let me know.
I still cannot get the app to work for the time being. I've been posting all my recent art on Instagram (along with some throwback posts). I also post art on my tumblr, but rarely (I mostly just post fanart on there, and if I do more Hetalia art, I'll probably ONLY post it on my tumblr).

Hope you check it out, if not, no pressure. I miss DA, and hope I can post again, but for now, this'll have to do :)
I'm going to be starting a commission drawing soon. It'll be 11 x 14 inches. I'm trying to figure out if doing this drawing on watercolor paper would be a good option or not. Sadly, my regular drawing paper of that size is all damaged, unless I'm missing something.

I tried researching it, but I came up with advice on paintings, and it's a drawing. It'll be mostly Prismacolor pencil with a little oil pastel for the highlights. So that's what we're working with here. I know with watercolor paper I couldn't roll it, so is it safe to ship it flat?

So:
11 x 14
watercolor paper (140 lb)
Prismacolor pencils with oil pastel highlights

If anyone is experienced with shipping different kinds of paper in different sizes, advice would be appreciated. I'm VERY new to shipping work; it always gives me anxiety in fear that it'll get damaged. I've always shipped drawings on regular sketchbook paper. So this is my first time with a different kind.

I know this isn't the most exciting topic, and it's probably fine, I'm just the kind of person that HAS TO DO EVERYTHING EXACTLY PERFECTLY ALL THE TIME OR IT'S A TRAGEDY. Which... isn't a great mindset going into this, I know, but yeah. Thought I'd try.
