Ok. So I am considering dropping out of the contest, so that I can work on more concept art, and then start her over the right way. I've been going through a lot of personal stuff the past month, and I noticed a couple of themes.
One being that I am not a very patient person. I believe this negatively impacts my art, as I jumped into 3D WAY too soon when I only had a single concept image that I was going off of. I haven't even nailed down her design (much less her backside) so I was really struggling with the modeling.
I'm good at modeling if I have a plan. Only, I didn't have a good enough plan.
Another thing I recently came to the conclusion is that I have not been having fun with art lately. I work a shitty retail job while I attempt to do this for a living, and I feel that every piece I do has to be amazing, and to be the one to get me the life I want. I think this puts too much pressure on me, and thus I get really frustrated. This mixed with my impatience I think holds me back a lot.
I really like the idea for this contest, and I really like the character that I started to create. I just think that I need to take a step back, do things for fun with no expectations, and then I can get back on creating this character on my own time.
I want to thank SketchFab for hosting this contest. I wish I could continue, but I don't think I can right now. Maybe the next contest I will do.
Or, maybe if I feel inspired, I will pull something out before the deadline for this. That would be really cool! I just don't want to stress myself out too much, as I need to remember why I started doing art and 3D in the first place so many years ago. Because its fun!
I still look forward to seeing everyone elses entries!
