Another one pops up! 
I just recently got over that stupid feeling of being too intimidated to use any of my 'expensive' art supplies in fear of wasting them on bad art. That was a problem that took years to get over, and it's very freeing to not be afraid of using everything I own.

Now that that hurdle is over, I've got another one.
How the hell do you figure out what to sketch/practice in your sketchbooks!?
I have a ton of things I could explore, and I have a lot of work to do to get better at the things I think I am good at... but how do you choooose?
I keep getting bored less than halfway through my sketches. Mostly over the subjects I'm drawing. It gets worse every time I pick up a pencil, and I noticed I've been avoiding my art supplies like the plague. 
This might sound like typical art-block, but it feels different somehow. All my usual methods of beating art-block don't put a dent in this feeling. It's kind of depressing. 

I'd be happy to hear your thoughts, suggestions, or maybe stories if you ever felt like this before. I'm sure I can't be alone on this. Thanks for reading! :heart:
