My name is Joseph Basham. I'm a sixteen year old kid from Maryland, and I've been drawing since I was twelve years old. I made this account a long time ago, and haven't posted on ConceptArt.Org in more than a year.
I used to really love drawing, but over the past year or two I have became so obsessed with improvement that I no longer enjoy it. I have been drawing roughly an hour every day, I draw from sites like Posemaniacs.com and Characterdesigns.com. I tend to put off drawing now, because I am almost constantly in something of an art block.
Sometimes I'll only feel like drawing once a week, sometimes only once a month. Even less often do I create something that I view as "passable", and those rare drawings usually look terrible to me the day after.
What should I do? I'd like to be an artist one day, but this obsession has actually slowed my progress to a crawl, and killed my sense of creativity. Has anyone else ever experienced anything like this? Does anyone have any advice?
Thank you for your time.
