I viewed my gallery and felt a bit sad that I haven't submitted much for years. I try to draw but they always end up unfinished, because I don't feel the same joy to draw like I used to. I'm too impatient, and I want to be able to paint quickly, FINISHED pieces... but it's hard when you don't even have the time to play around with the tools you've got. I have loads of folders with references and tutorials on how to paint in SAI and Photoshop, on youtube, here and privately, but I never follow them. I might reach the first few steps but then I give up, interrupted by something else and never get back to the piece I'm working with. It's frustrating.
But I thought that I could at least show you pieces I've started to work on at least. The one to the left is inspired by a piece from an artist I found on Instagram. I had to censor it tho haha, but never got to even make a clean lineart. I wanted to practise on people kissing in that posé.
The mer-creature is something I drew when I got inspired from Voltron while watching the series. Tried to practise on coloring in SAI on that one, but never reached the shadowing-stage. Dunno what sketch it is on it's left but I guess that I wanted to practise posé-anatomy. The one above is practise on different eyes. It's supposed to represent an OC I have that is an android, but I only got so far as to sketch it. The one in the middle is probably someone you recognise if you've watched "Kabaneri of the iron fortress". I looooove that show and their artstyle, so I tried to draw Ikoma in SAI and wanted to practise coloring it, but the rough lineart took so much time and I never got motivated to continue painting him. The rest on the right is a bunch of Yuri on Ice-doodles lol. I was insanely obsessed by that series when it aired and wanted to be "first" on painting scenes from it that hasn't reached the internet yet (god I was such a fool, even Tumblr crashed because of the YOI-hysteria lol). Never got to finish them though, dropped my motivation for it.
So yeah... I dunno if this is even interesting to look at, but I think it is interesting to look at other artist's sketches so I thought that I might upload something at least. I'm not dead, just not great at prioriting my time to draw... I'm stuck in adulthood where all the adult stuff takes too much time that it is hard to balance with your passion. I dunno if I can call it passion, it kind of disappeared long ago in years of depression....
