i think my drawings have become a little souless recently. i no longer have the same sense of fun when i put the pen to paper. it probably shows in my illustrations. probably because of the stress from the final year project. i think about it even when i sleep and i wake up in the morning thinking SHIT FYP. after this is all over i'll take a loooonnnngggg looooonnnggggggggggg break to rest and recharge.

I know what you´re talking about. Usually, a change of style and pace helps. And this is a great line drawing here - not so much the lady itself but the seat and the door at the right.

Also, when you´re working on something big over a longer time, try to throw in some loose sketches like those, or draw something nonsensical. It helps a lot and will loosen your inner cramp. Trying to do something else isn´t helping so much since you will get the feeling "Urgh, now back to WORK again". But if you do some quick stuff once in a while without any pressure, it will help your attitude towards drawing.

But nevertheless, I belong to those who have a daily fight for motivation. But I am learning ;)

Keep the spirit up!

Oh, and your graduation scenery looks great. I wish I would practice rooms and space more... It looks very consistent, has solid composition, and the lady on the left with the shades and the dog is brilliant!

Best wishes ag. I can kind of relate. After college, I drpped out of making any kind of art for nearly a half a decade. Please don't do what I did though. Keep at it, persue artistic avenues of your own interest, even a little but at a time. You'll get it back, don't worry. In the meantime, wonderful drawing here.

AG, I love your works. And I haven't even had the heart to even unwrap those cards that I bought at your stall awhile back.

Keep drawing and don't lost the soul, man. I adore the sense of irony in your art.
