No, not Big foot or such.
Is there such a thing a painters block?
I have heard the the term writers block.
I have had the desk set up and ready to go and I just can’t get started. I know what I want to do, what colors. I just don’t do it. I even sat at my desk for 10 minutes and I didn’t do anything…. Ugghhh.
Yes, real life does get in the way a little, but that isn’t really a change. Stuff is always happening.
Am I insecure about my skill, sure. At one level, I know I do a good job, but I am always pushing to improve. Try a new brush, paint, wash, mixture, something new…
Shrug…. Maybe I just do the same thing every day, every week, every year and painting is something that isn’t always the same..
I spent one night last week doing this… Yes, I sat here for an evening clicking to fill in little areas of a concept art to see if I like the way I planned on painting this big ugly old bastard…
A sketch or coloring in concept are sometimes helps me clear up my thoughts and plans. The Blue is steel (paint doesn’t do colors like mixing paints) with a dark tint, the light gray a different steel mixture, the tan is a brass color and the dark grey will be the black armor.
I am in a funk to be honest. Job worries is part of it. The details don’t mater. Uncertain future.
Saturday I started another project. Rubber Ducky is a good name for it. I spent a good four hours doing something different. I even got a blister doing it. Not telling you and details about it yet. I have been careful to take pictures of what I have done so far. Eventually I will post some updates on it.
BigK has not stopped, it is the top of the list and I will get back to it tomorrow.
