Day 7

Today was a very difficult day for me. I don't know why the urge hit me so hard. I don't think there were any triggers.  But I wanted to play so bad today. But I didn't give in. I just cried in frustration. Then I felt like I was going crazy because I was crying over a video game...  I haven't really done much the last seven days to keep my mind busy. A bunch of mindless stuff. I just can't seem to get any motivation to start on a hobby. I want to do my 3d art. I keep thinking about it. But I haven't started on it yet. I'm just glad I work five days a week. I don't think I could get through this if I were home all the time. How is everyone else doing?

Hi Lady!

Hi Lady!

I know just how you feel!  There are some days when you want to be creative, but are so used to playing games that you just freeze and want to do that.  It's like false accomplishment.  I am writing a cartoon and am going to create the art for it as well.  I look forward to every weekend because I want to work on it, but fall short and give in. 

I just joined this site so hopefully I can actually stay disciplined and make my cartoon.  What kind of 3D art are you working on?  Stick with it.  Don't feel bad for feeling upset either.  You can do this.

Hi DCMS84! 

Hi DCMS84! 

I make my 3d art with Vue and poser software. I use to be really into it. But then I went more into gaming. Then my 3d art was abandoned completely. My website is www.emilyhedrick.com there is not a lot there at the moment. I started adding stuff the “past art” section if you want to see it. Otherwise go here, and see all of my art. Lol  http://emilyahedrick.deviantart.com/  I would be interested in seeing your cartoon when it’s done.

Emily, 

Emily, 

Your art is absolutely beautiful.  How long have you been working on it?  I can imagine it must take some time to create.  I am halfway through the first episode of my cartoon.  It has a comedy style that blends together tastes of Rick and Morty, Regular Show, and Space Dandy.  It is a lot of fun to write.  I am trying to make 22 minute episodes.  I downloaded that Adobe Suite that lets you use all of their programs for a monthly fee.  Naturally, I played video games instead of taking advantage of my membership so far! 

I hope you stay confident with your art and keep working with it.  I'll make a promise and keep you updated on my cartoon if you keep me updated with your art.  I think we are similar with the fact that we have a passion for something creative, but it can be hidden by our unwanted drive for video games.

Let me know!

Matt
