I need to get drawing again. Find an art style that works for me.  

   Everyone told me that my art style is very "graphic" and 2-dimensional.  I should push that.  I've been wanting to try silhouettes without outlines.  Maybe even push for a flatter aesthetic with a color gradation that doesn't conform to 3-dimensional forms' curves.  I think that would work for me.

On the other hand, a lot of my blockprints rely heavily on linework.  ...Thick, simplistic linework---Nevermind.  Maybe those lines only really served to create the silhouette forms; maybe the silhouette forms were the only really effective part of my blockprint illustrations.  

I want to get back to blockprinting.  I actually...think...I'm afraid to say it, but I think I may not like drawing.  >___<;;;;  But I always feel very good, on an instinctual level, when I make things with my hands:  carving rubber blocks, sculpting clay, quilling, origami, wire jewelry making, etc.  

Maybe I should give up on my love of comics and occaisional urges to draw comics, and just focus on 3-dimensional art.  ...On the other hand, I've always liked having my "fingers in many pies".  Sometimes I think the most fun I have in crafting, is when I cross-synthesize different crafts into different fields.  That epiphany feeling, implimenting it, testing, experimenting, and producing success, is a thrill.  So I think if I want to be happy making art, I have to keep doing it all.  Just a little bit of each---maybe less more than others, but I've always been happy being cross-disciplinary.  ^-^

In other words, I still need to get back to drawing.  ^.~;

Still trying to find my style and mediums. But I like learning every kind of art and craft I can. I find that cosplay exercises the most techniques at once. And fandom always keeps me practicing. I dream of writing and drawing a manga of my Personal Myth. I love animation and comics, but particularly anime and manga, which influence everything I do.

Thanks!  Always glad to spread uplifting-ness around.  ^.~  It really is cathartic, even when I just post doodles.  Sorry I've been skipping it lately.  I've been away from a good internet connection for like a week.  ^^;
