Basically I was working on the whole writing craft thing, but then I noticed something was off. I like creating characters, worlds, settings / places, etc. but when it comes down to the "ok now paint it with words" I just didn't. Immersing the reader by using just the right words to describe objects, people, and places is a bit of a lost art on me. It's really hard for me because I've never been any good at or with language. I avoided writing anything polished and was only plotting. So I picked up a sketching/drawing pencil again, and drew anything I felt like. It felt like I had come home. I've been drawing the past few days because it feels natural and right.
I think a lot of why I stopped drawing/painting before was because I got too worried about the results of my work, but if I keep myself from worrying about the end result, I enjoy it. I still suck at drawing, need lots of practice, and can barely use my tablet anymore (hand-eye disconnect is back with a vengeance), but now I'm actually enjoying doing the practice. And what am I practicing first? The thing I suck at drawing the most: hands. When I get back into painting, I might start with faces since I always sucked at shading them the most. Eventually? I want to draw my characters (the ones I was trying to write about before).
So up coming art? Maybe drawings/sketches of hands at some point. No promises on any future art right now.
