Where do I begin here?
I don't know what other artists define as an "art block", but I consider what I'm dealing with to be an art block
because the amount of "art" I normally have put out since the day I got on DA, is being "blocked" and diminished
in output number. Or simply that I'm not doing as much art as I used to do (drawing or writing wise).
I've chatted with some friends on and off about this as well as one or two DeviantArtist's that were kind enough
to send me a private message, wishing me good health and asking how I'm doing with the art block situation. It
wasn't until I talked to these individuals that I realized...
...I've never had an art block in my life
I've had hiatuses before, but those were simply temporary situations that either barred me from working on art, or
I simply needed a break. Otherwise I've been drawing on and off non stop
since 1999 when I fell in love with
anime and I have been writing on and off nonstop
since high school. Never once have I ever had an actual
art block that completely diminished the amount of art I've done on a normal basis.
This started around December 2012 and has continued since then, but as of the last maybe...couple of months some very personal things
in my life have changed and it completely affects my moods for art altogether.
The reason I feel this might be permanent is because this hasn't gone away. I feel it might never go away
an artist with a lot more followers than what I started out as, I at least want to keep you guys in check so you're not
wondering what the hell is going on with DK333.
Do not interpret this as my way of saying that I'll never do art again. No, no, no, no, no. That's not what I'm saying. It's
just simply my way of explaining, at least for people who have been with me for a while
, that the amount of work I've normally put out
is going to be drastically smaller in size
, at least if you haven't already noticed. I still get
moods to draw and write. Hell, I'm still currently in a Devil May Cry mood. It's not dead, but simply just not what it used to be
So please don't take this as a way of me telling you guys to stop following me, just simply that I'm not writing and drawing as often.
And yes as promised in the last journal about my art block, I will indeed update "Behind Closed Doors" after I get back from
my convention at the end of May. You guys have waited too long so I will definitely update it even if I'm not really in the mood
