how are you all doing?
Just wanted to throw an update about my uploads and what I'm planning to do.
First off all though, how's your winter? Are you enjoying the escape from the heat? I sure as hell am. ...Also I kinda get the feeling I said about the same thing last journal entry...anywho!
Gotta love chilling in my chair, bed sheets around me, watching a movie while drinking hot coco. Nom. <3 However, besides the business and relaxingness, I've decided to go and upload my WIPs and 'quite not finished art' actually.
Hear me out:
I feel like I'm leaving this account cold, yet I have so many watchers here and I just don't feel like I'm uploading enough for you all.
The problem is dat if I feel that a picture I'd be working on isn't finished (as of what I feel, yet it might actually not be true), I won't upload it here. Same as when I DID actually finish a piece, and yet I don't feel like it's 'deviantART-worthy'.
I'm really sorry about this and the slackingness. I do draw almost every day and finish up the things I do for commissions here and there, but about 80% don't even show up on dA because I don't feel the need of ...showing it? I am proud of what I've made, but it feels so empty like I don't think it's worthy to show all of you guys.
I've spoken to some people regarding this, some of them tell me they feel the same, but still upload regardless of that. Because no matter what you make there's always room for improvement, but people want to see where you started off from. And if you feel like you've drawn something which you are not proud of...Don't give up. You could tweak it around, but even if it doesn't make you feel satisfied after tweaking...Y'know what? Restart the entire thing. Go watch some other art and videos, and restart it and perhaps try a different method of painting/drawing.
What I'm about to show you is something I'm not proud of at all..In fact, only like 2 people know this exists because I'm so damn uncomfortable for what it looks like. But you know? Who cares...I wanna show you what I've drawn at first
, was unhappy with it...restarted it the same week and finished it not long after.
Probably my most favorited piece on my account:
This is what it first looked like:
Yes, I wanted to actually upload that. I felt so bad because I spent a lot of time on it... I explored around a bit more and thought the brush I used could be used differently and looked up references of Deathwing a bit more.
Then finally not too long after I got this:
I know its super duper cliche to say this but don't give up. If you think you've failed, keep on going and trying. You'll eventually make something great but you just have to keep trying.
And if you decide to leave an old picture alone and jump onto another, don't leave that WIP or 'not quite finished' picture behind. Apparently people are indeed interested to see your progress and what you've been doing. It's better than leaving your account cold, like I did... So, therefore again, I will soon upload sketches/turnarounds/some WIPS and some pictures I've decided to abandon because I've just been feeling like doing something else.
There are some things on my Artstation which I will link here now www.artstation.com/artist/spyx
I will upload some of the things here too on dA then, and it will probably end up in a folder called somewhat like 'Wips' or whatever. We'll see.
Hope you guys will enjoy that in the meantime. Cheers and have a great winter and Xmas!
(Ps. yes my journal skin is having some issues, ill try to fix that when or if I found out how. lol)
