Going back to traditional art after mainly doing digital and wishing you could make selections, crop, etc.
I’ve started bookbinding and discovered a common problem:
That’s not to say I don’t enjoy bookbinding, and while my block is limited to drawing and such, I find that the physical crafting like making a book often gets me stuck.
When it’s a nice day out and you just want to draw.
me:*goes outside, arms full of art supplies*
me:*even lays down a blanket*
the grass:*poke poke poke*
wind:*blows all my things away*
me:so much for nature
Not being able to draw hands is like having a skill of hiding them. You draw a person with arms behind their back, hands in their pockets, in their hair, etc.
Instead of practicing to get better, you learn all the ways around doing it.
Personally I draw people a lot. Sketches from prompts and what not so I find myself in many predicaments where when people ask what I like to draw I respond like:
person:you like to draw? like what?
person:cool, like who?
me:*thinking about how when you dream the faces you see are people you’ve seen out and about because your mind cannot come up with faces*
me:just, whatever comes to mind
me:*thinking:that sounds creepy, doesn’t it?*
Being an artist and having a dog.
the dog hair from my clothes:*sheds*’
me:*doesn’t notice until the project/painting is done*
me:*scrubs furiously at the now dried painting*
me: well crap
Recently I started book binding. There has been multiple incidents regarding glue, including but not limited to-
me: glues leather
my hands: *get glue on them*
me: oh ill just wash them
me: attempts to get glue off, doesnt work
me: what the-*looks at glue bottle*
glue: water resistant
me: okay then
Building up marker so much that the paper starts to tear.
