not having fun.

Posted by deadlandddah - November 28th, 2022


my art and the idea of creating art is stressing me out to like an extreme degree. I really have no clue how to make this awful feeling go away. I dont want the only thing I know how to do to become something I dont enjoy. it's been eating me alive for a while now. I don't wanna feel like this. it feels like I'm only gonna continue to get worse.

im struggling with this exact thing right now, i feel your pain :’) im taking a break from art for now. i think you need a break as well. forcing yourself to make art will just make the problem worse, and it’s okay to take breaks whenever you need it, your health matters!!!!

you should also try to find the source of whatever is stressing you out about making art, so you can start to take steps to fix it. are you afraid of failing? or are you just tired of making art? is your art not turning out the way you want it to? that’s just a few examples i thought of

Take some time off man. Life is not fun when one of the things you love to do becomes boring and feels meaningless. That is all I know what to do.

I'm really bad at taking breaks. the second I feel like drawing again I'll do it. and then the bad feelings roll in again the second its not perfect. it's an unhealthy cycle I would like to break.

@deadlandddah that is understandable. maybe you can find other ways distracted yourself from drawing like watching a show or finishing a game you never finished. its just that, if you have a hard time taking a break or slowing down on your drawing skills that make you feel down, its best to take a step back, refresh and then jump back in.
