art block  

The period when I was working on the magazine illustration, I was really in the zone. I was drawing non-stop the entire day, alternating between the illustration and my own fanart on the side. But when I finally finished the illustration, I just crashed as;dlfajsdf. (´;ω;`)

I had an art block, which was followed by a fever and throbbing headaches for the next three days, and no thanks to my curiosity I started coding a website to host my TCG collective to counter my art block - which kinda intensified my headaches, HAHA. CSS and PHP codes sure as hell work superbly as medication counterreactives. But I successfully turned this into this; I'm pretty proud of it! I think the graphics turned out really well too. (。✧‿✧。)

B-but ehhem! That's all well and peachy but... this post is to remind myself to start drawing by tomorrow! I've been doing some observational drawings for my portfolio quite half-heartedly because I just couldn't gather the strength in my fingers -- but this will change tomorrow. YES. A;SDLKFASDLF /slaps sense into self

p.s. I also created an artlog (erstsince) pre-block and will be posting random processes and sketches there, because I simply can't get used to posting on tumblr. orz so if it interests you, please do follow and support me there! (*≧▽≦)

i get your strategy entirely! i think that's a better method, tbh, and i totally agree :"> i tried that once, too, and rofl i gave up because my hoarder instincts are too strong and i wind up feeling insecure about my trade pile. it's alright mate, i'll make do with slower trades to satisfy these illogical urges orz (you know what? i feel like i'm becoming some kind of squirrel hoarding acorns for winter)

yeah, i think so! D: and sunday comes card inflowwwwwww so they're gonna be so busy ;;; tell me how it goes bb! btw just curious, did you sign up for modship? ' o ' i'm kinda wondering who did just randomly. /didn't

HAHAHA OH SHERA X'D ♥ i fully support you! your skinning is wonderful. i suppose you could always offer to do graphics on the side, like banners for events and stuff? that should take up a considerable amount of work methinks! ' o '

LOLOLOL that's true!! i still hope you get a mainly graphics job over a games job though ; w ; i get the impression that handing out cards + linking them and all takes forever orz
