Hello everyone! :wave:

This is going to be a slightly bizarre journal entry but I would just like to voice something that's been on my mind for a while, as well as find out if I'm the only one who feels so . . .

I graduated just over a year. No luck on the job front on both counts but my artistic energy seems to dwindle; some days I have it in full force, others I'm lucky if I can draw a stick man I like. I guess you could say I'm just suffering from an artistic block of sorts, however for the longest time I've been feeling as though I'm following a path in the dark. I can never seem to see where it is I'm going, or even if the path is beneath my feet. 

Does anyone else feel this way? Or has felt this way?

Perhaps it's a little too personal to post on the likes of DeviantArt but I just wanted to potentially see how others cope with losing their enthusiasm or direction.

I hope you're all well! :thumbsup:

Take care! :love:

Fly, my pretties... by s-carter
Fly, my pretties...
A little collaboration that the ever-so talented Maryanneleslie and I have been working on; her lines, my colours. :la:

This was so amazingly fun to be a part of and I would like to thank Mary-Anne for offering to work on this because I have long been a fan of her work. I wanted to keep it very monochromatic and was debating about adding in a detailed background but decided a simple grey was more appropriate. I may go back at another time and work on this a bit more but as of now, I'm pretty pleased with how I did.

Make sure you go and like Maryanneleslie's gallery if you haven't already, for she is simply amazing!! 

Thanks for viewing :thumbsup:

Wonder Woman by s-carter
Wonder Woman
A private sketch commission for herofan135 as part of my reaching 10K pageviews here on :devart:. I was going for an 'Elysian Fields' feeling, regardless of that being the Greek afterlife - I'm not sure if Wonder Woman is based on or around Greek Mythology.

Wow... :wow:

Where did that come from?! I simply can't thank you all enough. As I'm sure many of you know, it's tough to get your work seen and appreciated so the fact that I have received such feedback over this past year in particular, I thank you all deeply!:love::squee:

So, to give back I shall be giving away 5 sketch commissions, free of charge, to the first five people to comment on this journal. If successful, I'll send you a note asking what exactly you'd like it to be.

Good luck and thank you all, from the bottom of my heart! :love: 

Please share my :devart: page and my Facebook page (link below) with others. :thumbsup:

Let's get it to 20K views :turbopoke:

:happybounce: Aw, no problem!
Yes, I love traditional work. It's easier to handle than digital (on digital paintings you need much more time).
