new style and either i’m not happy with it or it was so forced that i
don’t know how to recreate it. It’s so aggravating…
Yeah, that’s generally where I end up, too. I wonder if I should try to concentrate the change more on certain aspects, rather than THE WHOLE STYLE. Like, maybe I could play around with the way I do eyes, or body shapes or something.

time, and I think you have changed a lot/improved since then. It’s
harder to see change in yourself than it is for outsiders to. Chin up
buttercup! You rock!
You’re such a sweetie, thank you. I guess it’s harder for the artist to see the improvement, generally. I’m not saying there’s none. I can see some obvious differences. I just feel like there really should have been more than there was and then I end up feeling kind of disappointed in myself. I don’t know. Lately I feel more susceptible to this than usual. Mood may be affecting me quite a bit.

It does, indeed. :(

it, then maybe sketching something you don’t normally draw might help?
That’s really sweet of you, thanks. And I did start drawing more animals/animal characters this year, but I feel I haven’t made much headway with that. I think I might see if I can zero in on something in particular to change around/play with instead of trying to change everything at once out of frustration with it. Thank you, though.
