This is going to be another print for an upcoming convention. I’ve been dreading this picture for a while, because I didn’t think I could make it work. It does look very different from what I first had in mind, but I’m still very pleased with the result! Also, I tried some new things and learnt a lot in the process :D

My contribution to this month’s Let’s draw the Hobbit project: Drawing a crossover between the Hobbit and any anime of our choice. Of course I had to choose Natsume Yuujinchou, which is one of my favourite anime! (Smaug is supposed to be Nyanko-Sensei XD)

What bugs me as someone who is recovering from mental illness is that I can’t really tell if I’m ok or not. Because I can manage quite well by strictly following a set of self-made rules. It’s like walking your brain on a leash, watching its every step. But at some point you feel confident enough. Surely your brain has finally learnt how to do well under real conditions. But when you actually try, your brain reveals to be a helpless mess… which is such a disappointment.
Come here, poor little brain… We’ll try to take it slow again.

This semester we’re required to make a fairly large project at university. It’s about producing a print medium on a particular topic. I’m currently looking for a topic that I’d like to work on and for now I’ve decided to try “over-thinking”. (Though it has not been approved yet and I’m only trying to understand it myself.)
Over-thinking, especially when it comes to an unknown future, is a very common problem among young adults. But when we look for helpful material on this topic, it’s hard to find what we need.
Do we need to be educated about the causes and consequences of over-thinking? Do we need to learn strategies to make it stop? Or is it motivation that we’re lacking?
I’d like the content to be interesting to young adults, so your opinions and experiences would help me out with my decision on possible content. Below there’s a link to the survey and you’d make me very happy if you could spare a moment to answer 29 short questions!

Another original thing….
Uni has started, so again finding enough time to draw is a struggle ´__`

Usually, when I try something new, I quickly feel discouraged because it’s never as good as the things I’m already used to drawing. Sometimes I wonder, why I even bother, because I know that no one is going to enjoy those poor drawings.

However, trying out new things, falling down and getting back up is what makes us learn. I’ll never get better at that other thing if I don’t try.

For example, I still feel very self-conscious about drawing realistic faces. I’m terrible at it. But at the same time, my horrible attempts have become only half-horrible by now… and I know that this pile of bad drawings is definitely going to take me where I want to be. It’s just a matter of time and determination.

I think no one should ever feel discouraged from trying something new. Don’t be afraid of bad drawings. They’re the most important ones!

Another piece that has taken me several days to finish ´__` Though I’m glad that I did it.

I know, all this original stuff is boring for those who follow me because of fanart… but this year I’m really going to need some original drawings. So please be patient with me.

To make it a bit more interesting, I added progress pictures.

Also, it’s on Society6
