Today was one of those really lazy, 'dead' Saturdays where I wanted to get so much done and yet succeeded in doing absolutely nothing.
Well, I say nothing. Today I played Team Fortress 2, League of Legends, Awesomenauts and Don't Starve. In that respect it was quite productive, because I hardly ever play Awesomenauts and I've never touched Don't Starve despite buying it last year somewhen. Much like 99% of my Steam library. I have a Steam Sale Problem, okay?
I did manage to sort out my little art corner, though. I've been in a heck of a funk lately. I have conventions around the corner and I know I need to draw new pieces for them, but I just can't seem to find a spark. People give me ideas all the time but it all seems to fall flat. I know what I want to draw, I just don't know how I want to draw it. That's kind of the reason I've thrown myself so heavily into the necklaces, because at least they're something new and exciting if not actual art pieces. Blah. Maybe the conventions just aren't close enough yet. I've always 'joked' that if it weren't for the eleventh hour, I'd get nothing done. :P
Anyway, in sorting out my desk, I realised I never did share this marker card!
Marker cards are meant to be fast and fun, so I'm using them as a chance to draw things I love, but wouldn't normally draw. I'm a huge Nightmare Before Christmas fan. I owe so, so much to the movie, but that's a blog for another time. I've never actually sat down and drawn any of the characters before, so I figured the marker cards were a great way to change that!
I'm really happy, too! Somebody bought my Twilight Sparkle & Spike marker card from Etsy a while back, and the other day they sent me a message saying how gorgeous it was and how happy they were with it! It means so much to hear from happy customers. It's nice knowing you're doing something right, even when you're in the middle of a big ol' art funk.
