Since I just posted my first deviation in about a month yesterday, and then – gasp! – another one today, I remembered that I actually like being productive. However, whenever I make any sort of specific goal to do with how often I complete a piece of artwork (eg. once per day/week/etc.), I inevitably end up burning myself out and completely neglecting my artwork altogether. I don’t like that.
I ended up realizing that, by setting such a goal for myself for no reason, it ends up being counterproductive because I inevitably pressure myself to try and come up with something, just for the sake of doing something. I do my artwork and have joined DeviantArt because it brings me joy. For me, and anyone else who operates the way that I do, we need to realize that we don’t necessarily need to work on any sort of set schedule. If setting an arbitrary deadline for yourself sucks all the joy of drawing right out of you, then don’t set one. All we need is to create whatever we want, whenever we want, because we love to create.
Okay, rant over! Enjoy the rest of your week everyone.
