When the project gets to big for you

July is coming to an end…

Thank goodness.

This month I have been pushing myself to…of course…do more. It’s a never ending process and basically setting up goals I may not accomplish. Still I managed to get a lot for myself done. The only thing though…

I haven’t created a lot of art.

This month I started several projects that are all a little bigger. Instead of my standard portrait style I wanted to really push for background and environments, and more conceptual pieces. I started six…I finished two.

The worst part is that I managed to get the concept and compositions down. I even have base coloring, but when trying to flesh it out, nothing seems to be moving the way I want them to so I take a break from them. Now I’m four deep and exhausted (it doesn’t help that I have been researching for freelance gigs which takes up hours of my time as of late).

Right now it is about getting myself comfortable with bringing more to my work. However I think I need to really slow down because it’s not coming together. I’m gonna eventually write a piece about hitting an artistic roadblock mid piece, but for now, I just want to really get back into a groove where I can create and be excited to create.
