Sorry, couldn't think of a worthwhile title. Just need to rant a little bit since that usually helps with this kind of thing.
What am I ranting about? Well, I'm in a bit of a creative slump at the moment. I'm still able to produce things, as you've seen lately, but most of it doesn't feel very fulfilling to me (and that's pretty important for an artist, I think). Part of it is that I haven't painted anything properly in over a month and when I say properly, I mean something that's actually challenged me and caused me to learn something new. That's usually my main drive; trying out a new technique, or attempting to figure out how another artist achieved something. Thing is, I just haven't felt like painting anything lately, hence all the sketches and flat coloured stuff (or iphone stuff) I've been doing. Normally this kind of thing blows over after a week, but it's gone on longer that and now it's starting to bug me.
Another thing that's irritating me (and is probably just in my head), is that I worry that people are going to be alienated by all the different stuff I draw and the different methods I use to do it. I'm not sure why I think that, but I do, and I can't seem to shake it. What I'd really like to be able to do is just draw/paint whatever the hell I want and post it without even thinking if anyone is going to be bothered about it, because really it's not my problem. In fact, one of my biggest issues with this kind of thing is that there are a number of professional people watching me who's work I've looked up to in the past, and now that they're following my work, I feel that only certain things are okay to post, lest I put them off my stuff. What's up with that?
It's all very silly, I know that, but that doesn't stop it having a considerable effect on how I feel sometimes. Now I just need to figure out a way to stop it!
TL;DR - I worry too much about what others might think of me
Okay, rant over!
