Hey there, I like doing contests too, but most groups want you to be a member. Do you join all of them? I was just curious. Good to see that you're doing lots of jewelry and digital work too. Changing media always helps me a lot with art blocks. And I had many this year.
I don't mind joining groups that are relevant for my art and interests. Why not? It's good for exposure and seeing stuff. Also enough contests are run by individuals. I don't know what art block is. Always so full of ideas i can impersonate a fountain. But i have a lazyness and motivation issue XD
When I join groups my inbox floods and I have the tendency to watch all the new deviations and journals, which reduces my actual drawing/painting time. My art blocks consist of not knowing where to start, although I have plenty of ideas.
I thought of that many times but never did it. And today I did it; I turned of all the notifications of stuff that I never really watch. I only have a few friends who are artistic and they do motivate me. I have them over every two months or so and spread out all my paints, pencils etc and we make weird stuff all night. We should do it more often but it gets more difficult through the years as a lot of them get children and are busy.... 10 years ago it wasn't hard to get 5 people together, but nowadays....pfffttt. Anyway thannks for giving me a little help.
Such beautiful picture! You can actually see how two friends that are so different are actually guarding each other while they're sleeping. And I like them flying in the sky (I assume they're seeing the same dream (: ) and that mystical moon.
Oh, good... First I actually thought that it was a joke, but then I was like "...What should I reply to that....?" and then thought that oh well, it will be no bother, so why not help. But yeah, good. Well, it was just pure honesty (: I always tell my opinions out loud.
