I'm sorry if there's something like this in the FAQ, I'm on mobile, but: as an IB student (especially with your country having many more courses than the US) how do you find the time and motivation to do such complete works almost daily?? I want to draw but my fatigue or workload always thwarts me.
Haha don’t worry, there’s no such section in the FAQ
The truth is, I don’t make them daily! I usually upload something every 5, maybe 4 days on average. This roughly translates to 6 works per month - I don’t think it’s that much :)
The second thing may be the fact that I got some experience so my drawing time shortens to an extent. I tend to (THIS IS HIGHLY UNHEALTHY AND PLEASE FOR THE LOVE OF GOD DONT DO IT) draw in 6 hour blocks with no breaks which generally interferes with my sleeping schedule, so I literally dont sleep for the sake of drawing. I really need to change it because it’s been severely damaging my health and I mean it when I say that the “rebelious not sleeping bc drawing” facade is not as cool as ppl think.
Another factor might be that my IB course is entirely separated from my actual dreams and this keeps me motivated; I don’t study art so whenever I come home having at least a tiny itsy bitsy amount of time to draw is a real blessing!!
The last thing is, the IB course will be over in 2 months! I’ve already turned in most of my IAs and EE, only the Tok essay still needs to be turned in and it’s written, too. I’m studying for my exams, obviously, but I gotta treat myself from time to time :D
