Watchers

As I predicted, this year has been wild.
You know, it's hard being active when you only have 3 free hours every day and you are always exhausted. Finally, I have some free time on this winter break (yet I have a lot of pending work to do for January), so I can dedicate some of it to draw. I've done some stuff on the last few months. Mainly sketches and very simple drawings, but I'm working hard to keep the habit.

On the last few years I've found very hard to focus on drawing. It just didn't feel like it fulfills me anymore, it's more like an stressing task I force myself to do. I don't want it to be like this. I used to enjoy it.

The only solution I've found to that is stop trying so hard.
Stop being so critical with myself.
"Does that [thing in a drawing] look off? Sure, I'll try to fix it, but it doesn't have to be perfect, just good enough" has been my philosophy on the last few months. I can't afford being so critical with myself when drawing has became my main way to cope with stress. And I'm aware this isn't going to help me much to improve, but neither does being so disgusted at your own work that you can't even draw.
It's not like I'm even trying to become a professional artist anyway. I draw for enjoyment. I draw because I want to see my OCs and stories. I draw so I can share them. So more than anything, I draw for myself.

Being as busy as I am right now, I sure won't be able to be active on this community not like I have many people to be active with, since most of my friends left DA. I'll try to comment and fave some of your drawings, but I have a big pile of art made by all the people I watch, so don't expect much from me. I'm also going to be uploading some stuff I did. Nothing very good, of course, but again who's got the time?

By the way, I'll try to upload sketches and some other shit on my new tumblr, which is, in case someone is interested Crepto-Art.
Calling it art is a bit pretentious, don't you think?

Next semester looks painful too, so don't expect hearing from me after January.

Take care :heart:
