Wow these proportions are so bad this artist is terrible how do they get work we should all redline these to show how much better we could do them if they hired people like us

My advice for losing passion or drive is kinda different than most my friends so take that with a grain of salt, but I can only say what’s worked for me: Make yourself work. Doesn’t matter what you’re working on, don’t let yourself sit around not doing anything. You don’t have to take on, like, your opus or anything… but you need to be doing something with your art. You need to make a project, and hold yourself accountable for finishing it. Even if it looks like trash or its a failed experiment, its okay to make bad stuff. You learn from making bad stuff. Just keep your hands busy, keep your brain busy.

If I waited for when I felt my “groove” or had passion for it, I’d probably be out of a job because there was a 3 month period not long ago when I was burnt out and tired of drawing/writing, but I had to cuz its my job. I did good work I was proud of, regardless of being in my groove. I just had to find a motivation that wasn’t passion for those 3 months… which turned out to be “fear of not getting paid” and “refusing to drop quality.”

I am not of the opinion people should only work when they feel inspired. Sometimes, you just have to do it. You have to sit down and work. You have to find a reason to keep going at it during the times when the passion isn’t there, cuz the passion will not always be there.

like I said, take my advise with a grain of salt. This is what’s worked for me and how I function.

This is very good advice.

People have written a lot of touchy-feely pieces on this subject but I thought I’d get right to the heart of the matter

Still so enamored with the ‘True Detective’ title sequence, produced by Elastic. Art of the Title did a nice little feature on it.

Wow, the process detailed here is really interesting. Definitely worth checking out!

My first instinct when I get sad or bored is to make something to occupy/entertain myself. It’s something I learned to do at a very young age. Artists are good at being alone I guess. I get into this cycle where I just keep occupying myself by myself and forget that people exist and that people are also fun and nice. If you are a person who can create collaborative experiences, start a band or a group project, ask people for help, then I am jealous of you.

Hello babies. Welcome to Earth. It's hot in the summer and cold in the winter. It's round and wet and crowded. On the outside, babies, you've got a hundred years here. There's only one rule that I know of, babies-"God damn it, you've got to be kind.”
