Real talk... by Dualmask Real talk... by Dualmask
Did I make a mistake? Did I go too far in the wrong direction? Was it wrong of me to turn away from my characters and stories, to put too much emphasis on simple girl drawings, turn away from what made me start creating in the first place?

Sometimes I think so. But I don't know how to fix it...

--

Said on Facebook that I would only be submitting girl drawings to my Patreon from now on, but I don't know how I feel about it anymore. I don't know why I'm bothering with an art book when my instinct is to share everything I make freely. I'd rather just put them all online and get some feedback, and return to focusing perhaps on my game or something.

I guess because I'm not getting much in the way of commissions anymore and I figured, maybe I could sell my art. But I don't really have the spirit of a salesman. I'm just not the hustler/entrepreneur type.

Could be I'm just getting old and tired.

Should I have? I mean... I looked it over 3 times.... if it's a style thing you want to change you can, but as a piece of art, it's pretty flawless

Seconding the above comment; the urge to wanna do it all can be overwhelming all on its own. :crying:

Maybe structure your output? Every Monday is freebie day (something to get everyone's work week off to a good start), then a patrons-only piece in the middle of the week and then end with a game update of some sort?

I do need to learn structure, how to be more deliberate with my time and actions. I just worry that I'm too old a dog to learn new tricks. When everything one does for over 39 years was driven by impulse rather than deliberate planning, it's hard to change course.

But it's not impossible.

Impluse over deliberation... I think I'm still like that. Forever the wild spirit, hitching a ride on that shooting star. XD;

But I'm trying to think 2 or 3 steps ahead and seeing what can come of the actions of today.

That's a good way to go. Slow down, think it through...but not too much.

Yeah, that's my eternal problem...there's so much I want to do, but I'm able to focus on one thing for about a day before I feel like I'm missing out/leaving money on the table/shying away from my true skills and need to try something else.
