Hey I'm sorry If you've answered this already but I'm feeling really disappointed in my art right now. I get art blocks pretty often but I'm still bad at getting over them. Do you have any tips for getting over art blocks??
i don’t think i’ve answered an ask like this..even if i had it’s no prob! anyway, i def relate and it rly isn’t a great feeling. pretty much all artists will have low points, bc ur just not going to be at 100% all the time
maybe you’re experiencing a lil creative burnout and need to rest? i draw almost daily but space out Big Drawings, bc it’s no use forcing yourself to draw well/come up with ideas when you’re tired (physically/mentally). then you’ll get frustrated when you’re not getting results. try some sketches and later developing the ones you like! i have a zillion sketches of Questionable Quality, and i’ve come back to them to make stuff i’ve posted here \o/ gotta make some bad stuff before you make good stuff, as i’m sure you know…!
as for general ways to unblock… sometimes i try a new style or technique, look at art i like and think about how the artist got there rather than “:( i’ll never get there.” sometimes you just gotta draw that bust looking to the left. or i take a complete break so i can come back fresh! watch something, read, listen to music…
at the end of the day, don’t feel like everything you make has to be good. i kinda think this is where art block mainly comes from. you’ll make nice stuff at your own pace. don’t overwork yourself; focus on drawing for You and having fun figuring things out!! i hope this helps…? (゜▽ ゜);;;;
