Went to make myself a Halloween themed sona only to make myself an edgy goth pig(thing) who is also a fortune teller(and a baker :D). I love her!
my characters just keep getting edgier

also think I figured out a way to make my lines look soft, something I've been trying to do for years(just lock the line layer and randomly color with a large airbrush on low opacity, don't know why I never thought of doing that oh wait cause I'm a perfectionist :'D)

I've started spending more time looking at furry artists' stuff for ideas, and it's so motivating. I now have a folder where I'm saving images that inspire me, whether it be the color scheme or how the eyes are drawn.

Trying a new brush for inks after basically having art block since I got back online. Its surprisingly motivating!
Also even though I don't have a lot of customers it feels so good to be able to sell adopts and do commissions again without worry ;u;

Tip for artist going through art blocks - Try using new brushes, or something as simple as changing the color or texture of your brush(or for traditional use different colored pencils or markers when sketching, I love sketching with random colored pencils!)
It so simple but almost always makes me motivated and wanna draw again, since its something "new" ^^

That's really great advice Serana! I'll have to follow it now and see what I end up with.  :fox-:):

Drawing album covers for some planned stuff is just so relaxing and experimenting with my sonas, just redesigning them every so often. Makes them feel like they're more like me

I just finished a drawing that I'm really proud of, and I'm getting a little more confident in my art!

I think I figured out what I was doing wrong with my fursuit heads, I was making them too small allowing me to almost not shape it at all and my little brain couldn't comprehend that till I basically stared at other makers WIPs for like 2-3 months XD never really realized how big fursuit heads are!
Unfortunately I'm using up much more foam now but I am way happier with the shape of my current head and if I haven't even really shaped it yet just pinned down foam XP
Now I just hope I don't make it too big trying to get the shape I want, since its intended to be a partial only :'D

When your skills seem to have stopped developing,Most likely due to doing other things instead,May end up Practicing drawing more than video games
Also when your markers bleed through like.20 sheets of paper

Watching a youtube tutorial,It appears that A stick figure is my best method,I also had a concept method where you would make each individual part and glue them together well enough so it lookes normal,Never tried it before but its a little concept I had in mind

Okay so I drew something in 2 hours that I really like and I tried a new style of shading on it and it worked and I'm just so happy with myself right now

Pretty much everything I've been drawing lately I've been proud or satisfied with. I think I'm finally beginning to trust myself with making something good.

Been using that work timer thing that Brooklyn suggested for commissions and more serious personal work and its been working great! Keeps me from straining my hand from not paying attention and drawing too long as well!
Thank you Brooklyn for the suggestion, you kinda saved my work from my low attention span XD

Also happy people are buying my chibi icons! Their fun to make, helping me pay off my internet bill, gives me something to do as well as help advertise a little ^^
I hate to charge so little but I really needed a cheaper option to help get my foot in the door a little.
