A little break
Ok. I'm going to be flat out honest with you guys.


I'm suffering from "artist's burnout". My artistic brain is fried to a crisp at the moment. I'm sure you've probably guessed from the lack of art on this thing, I just need a bit of a break. I pushed myself for FC and now I'm paying the price (or rather, you guys are, and I apologize).

Please understand, I don't want to push myself and let my quality suffer for the sake of timeliness, but seeing as how no one who is commissioning me requested something with a deadline, I don't feel I'm being too unreasonable by taking a little time off. Not long mind you, just a few days till I can get my groove back.

I will finish your commissions when I get a chance, I just would rather them look "good" than just be "done", yanno?

If this is a problem with someone please contact me privately thornwolf227@gmail.com and we can work something out.

Current Mood: drained drained

Hrrph... sounds very familiar, only instead of art, for me it was costuming.
last 72 hours leading up to the con, i had less than 11 hours of sleep.
And yup, looking at fiberglass, foam rubber.. or faux fur about makes me wanna gag right now :P

Take some time, and relax wufgirl- Noone whoe cares about you should be upset by this.

They damn well better not. *holds up AK47* ;)

But yeah..I finished that lion pic the day before I left for the con. I even think I sneezed on it once from the pastel dust.

Oopsie. Ah well. DNA sample.

DNA sample! Embedded in the pic, I bet for any fanboyz out there that increased the value of it by three fold! ;)
(Gah, I better shut up now... that's a pretty disgusting thought :P )

*ponderous look at her comment*
You know... it _is_ only 5:40 a.m. here right now, but I do so wonder where the 'e' in 'who' came from.

Hey, the muse works when she wants. Give her a break - you've both earned it. I think one of the things I most envy about artists is that you all can produce a finished piece in a couple of hours whereas writers take weeks to create even a short story.

*gets you a cup of virtual blue-mountain coffee* :)

It's always good to know your limits and know when it's a good idea to take a break and recharge.
Have a nice relaxing break :)

This is pretty typical for a lot of artists. Just give your muse a chance to recover and she'll be back. Meanwhile, pass the potato chips...

I burned out too... And now I just don't have the energy.
You don't owe me any art, but I say TAKE THIS BREAK with NO GUILT!!! :)

You know, a lot of people I stalk watch are having that problem of late. Maybe it's just the season, I don't know.

In any case, hope you get over it quickly, life is not complete without your Thorndoodles :)

(maybe you need to do some art for yourself..ie not for any con or anything just something 'heartfelt' or meaningful to you)
