I set a challenge for myself and came in way bellow the bar. I did finish my portrait and created a few awesome artist trading cards. I also gave up on two artist trading cards and might give up on a third. The smaller size allows me to finish a piece semi quickly, but it also restricts the amount of detail and the references I can use. I’m struggling with getting my current atc right. I may move on from this one too. I want to attempt a few more, and complete one in colored pencil. I just know I’ll be going into next month working on that.
My depression/anxiety has really taken hold this month so it’s been hard for me to get things done. Also I really lost track of time. I kept thinking I have so much time to just focus on the artist trading cards and now the end of the month is so close. Everything feels off. It’s been hard to focus. I was able to push through the portrait.
I’m going to start work on something larger soon but I have a few more ideas for the smaller pieces too. I don’t think I want to set a deadline right now. Also next time I should probably complete a sample piece before I go trying to set challenges for myself. I spent way more time than I thought I would on each atc and that really messed with my timeline too.
