More color practice as a warm-up/break/practice. This is the best drawing of Chablis I’ve ever done. I think I finally figured out exactly how I wanna draw her hair.
General Anxiety Disorder - http://www.nimh.nih.gov/health/topics/generalized-anxiety-disorder-gad/index.shtml
I take an antidepressant so I’m generally pretty cool but sometimes it just does its own thing regardless.
why is everyone responding/sending asks all “wow fuck anyone who’s annoyed” cuz um, I’ve been annoyed by friends I love dearly, you’re allowed to be friggin annoyed. It’s fine. No one’s doing something wrong by being annoyed or avoiding a loved one who’s being annoying. That’s your right and doesn’t translate into bad friend.
And this is more motivated by my own GAD than anything someone said. It’s that creeping horrible feeling I’m annoying people that feels confirmed by completely innocent statements.
seriously stop with the “fuck those friends” sentiments that’s super unhelpful
I tweet, a lot. In huge bursts. And I know I’ve scared off followers in the past for it, and I’ve annoyed multiple friends. I don’t like being a weird feed barnacle.
And it’s not like I’m saying anything important, I know that.
I guess it’s that I go all day without talking. I live in rural Texas and my closest friend is 3 hours away and I’ve moved in with family. I go all day never talking about anything, and tweeting feels like talking. And talking makes me feel less like an eat-poop-sleep-draw-work robot.
Without those bursts of talking about whatever is on my mind, be it jokes or serious thoughts or completely inane bullshit, I feel like a numb robot. It’s not like I need a personal tumblr to “vent” about stuff. I’m not venting in the usual sense. Just talking openly about “whatever” for a moment is really cathartic, I guess, so I’ll spam the hell out of twitter for an hour so I feel less isolated and alone.
I’m not makin excuses, I’m just sorta explaining why I did it. I’m not gonna do it anymore. I’ll find different outlets. I don’t wanna annoy the shit out of people.
Just kinda explaining or whatever.
Experiment with new brush and ideas about how to use a limited color palette and find ways of coloring that look good with the way I ink cuz it’s something I struggle with. I wanna color more things, I guess. Like Slipshine comics and upcoming projects that might be in color.
Enjoying this, especially since it didn’t take me long to do like other coloring attempts i’ve done. Hatching feels very natural to me.
Its laundry day
Psst I’m pre-elite 4 and if anyone wantsta slide a Razor Claw my way…….
… that’d be cool
