And of course, after posting countless WIPs of the same illustrations for months, this is what I come up with. Yup, I haven’t finished any art other than this! I have tons of new ideas for illustrations, but it bothers me a lot that I have two major pieces waiting for me. Not to mention some sketches I wanted to develop.
I’m not really sure what’s holding me back from wanting to do more. I know I want to, but I always find excuses to why I don’t have time to do it. Well, this kitty illustration was a nice break. I had the incentive and this was random, fun and took pressure off myself to produce perfection. Well, okay, I did repaint this cat a few times and was up pretty late doing it… So I had to finally settle. Even after I finished, I wasn’t sure what to think of it and worried it wasn’t good enough! If I hadn’t already set deadline for myself, I’d still be hacking away at it. This made me really nervous to be honest.
Happy to say, the person I did for loved it. Thumbs up for me! :D I haven’t gone out of my way to do an illustration for someone in ages and have them be excited about it. It reminded me why I love doing it. Even if the content is a bit ridiculous. :)
