------EDITED to make PAST TENSE-----
I'm just not feeling the urge to get back to the drawing board till I can get back my passion...story telling, especially sequential work. My own stuff. So I purged my Gallery. I saved some old/new that tickle me...pencil versions, published inks, design stuff, Cally dailies, etc. But MANY of the sketch cards went bye-bye.
Since part of my motivation is sharing the creative process (streaming-which I can't do until I get a new PC) and sharing online, this is where I'm mentally hung up on. Too much stuff here. I let the sketch card years derail me and I limited myself and growth. "It's good enough", I'd tell myself, but I know it's not as good as I can do overall...just what I wanted to limit to that particular media/mediums. My best stuff is from my school days, maybe not in penmanship or structural in general, but in passion and creativity. Just look further back into my gallery before the dailies (when set to Browse; not Featured]...you may or may not agree, but there's definitely variety (albeit it due to multiple class assignments).
So I need to clear the pallet for new colors so to speak, but keep the ones I feel inspire me to get back in the game. Of course, I can't say when that will be...could be as late as next year (getting back to the drawing board, that is). But I need to start somewhere...
I'll understand if you choose to unwatch.
But I wanted to give you a heads up in case you wanted to 'swipe' any of your faves to have on your hardrive or whatever [too late, sorry]. The purge extended to my BM account. My Youtube most likely won't be updating (can't record anymore), but will mostly remain. Twitter stayed (but cleaned out old tweets). Tumbler went. Needed to consolidate.
"I should just stop with the art." That has crossed my mind many times, but I'm still hanging onto finding a solution. I can't get it on the home-front (no creative support or studio type environments), so I'm trying the virtual one (which has been the one thing keeping me hanging on).
Sorry and thank you for all your support over these many years. Hopefully I come back stronger.
