You stuff is glorious as ever, and getting better and better! It inspires me everytime..
Thank you for the kind words, dear, it means a lot. :) However, I wasn’t referring to drawing alone, sorry if my post was vague. It’s just that, the theme for drawings used to come to me easily, I could come up with headcanons, without consciously thinking about it, spotting parallels between characters/stories, think of possible interactions for them and wanting to draw it all… Simply felt more involved with the characters, stories, OTPs… That vending machine post was totally spot on even in this aspect, the light inside is broken, but I still work - I still draw stuff and enjoy it but just don’t feel the same enthusiasm and excitement over it. Hope this made sense. :D

Im sorry to hear that you feel this way. However…
Thank you for the encouragement, dear! It’s like I said to FireEagle above, not just about drawing itself but the process behind it. I think you’re totally spot on about peaks and troughs, only in my case it feels like peaks are getting fewer and farther in between. And you’re especially right about the course draining my energy, in the end it’s I’m like stuck in a limbo without being fully invested into either. On one side I have to struggle against my escapist tendencies and finish my course and on the other I need to immerse myself completely in order to be creative the way I envision creativity should be. It’s just hard to find a proper balance. Hopefully it’ll be alright once I get my life in order. :D
