The FUBR phase..
I believe I've hit the FUBR phase [fucked up beyond recognition]. None of my art pieces seem to turn out right, I've abadnoned 20+ sketches in a little over 30 hours. I'm a fast sketcher, but slow with details.
But no matter what I do, nothing seems to turn out right, I tried the 'look at a reference and draw it" bit but it just didn't work. I'm depressed lately so I know that has something to do with it, but that shouldn't be an excuse as to why my hands won't work right. x.x'
I'm having the problem where, I see something in my head and go to draw it down, then fuck it up so badly I just lose the image all togeather. Does anyone know how to pull yourself out of this stage? I already set up three art trades, one trade per week in hopes that will help. So far though I feel very uninspired.
An artist I looked up to, last night, told me my work was 'worthless crap'. I haven't really been able to look at a pencil since. My goal was to go to Ringling, but I'm afraid that I cannot get there.
Please help, I know all artists go through this, I did once before and forgot how to get out of it. Or maybe if someone who is reading this has this problem too, they can post and we could try to help eachother. I don't want to discriminate in this thread, it's for everyone. I merely stated -my- resoning, who knows, I think it'll help out more than just me. I hope.....
