    Unhappy Artblock with medication?

    Hey guys, long time lurker first time poster. But I've been going through a rough couple of months where I haven't been able to execute simple forms or basic anatomy without it coming out looking whack af. Like I've lost a big chunk out of some odd years of practice. Around the same time though I also started taking a prescription med for my bi polar depression and I'm wondering if those connect.

    Anyone else experience something like this? Is it temporary, or even make sense? Tips and tricks?

    Transitions are disconcerting. I suggest focusing on getting your bearing again. What is in you is still in you. It just needs the right climate and conditions to come out again,

    Yes those kind of meds do affect the creative side. No idea why though, could be to do with the feelings of urgency we have when creating.
