Don't be too hard on yourself. Earning a living in these times is tough and stressful for nearly everyone. All we can do is do what we can, when we can
Thank you Max
I'm always hard know myself
In a way, by investing in yourself & your talents you contribute. You planted a seed & it's grown. It's bearing fruit. Just not ripe yet. Patience. The life of the artist is not always an easy path. You obeyed your insistent heart.
Wise words, Love
Thank you Love, it's so hard though, most days I don't get anything done because I have no motivation.. I feel like I'm failing him and myself.
Thank you for the hugs Glauce, me, Natalie and Ann
Yes, I think many of us are wrestling with motivation & productivity these days. It can weigh on the spirit. Knowing we are not alone does offer some degree of relief I hope.
I'm creative, I DON'T DO TECHNICAL ***. Why does it have to be so overly complicated?
I just want to do the sculpting and the animating and someone else can do the horrible technical stuff
As you can tell, I'm feeling frustrated

Lol not that kind of rigging John
Thank you for the hugs John, Brave and Jen
Is it putting nodes on the skeleton?
Umm it's the process of making the armature (skeleton) and then skinning and weighting, but mainly I was having trouble because the hair wasn't attaching to the head bone so that it would move with the rig, because it was a separate mesh
The problem seemed to be because I had edited some of the vertices beforehand. Not sure why but at least I fixed it.
Thank you nixiblu
Good skill to have
Maybe you'll have your team someday and have a dedicated rigger. Introduced rigging to my son last week. Sounds like you've developed quite a skill set.
Thank you Love, I'm really not good at rigging. Most companies would have someone dedicated to rigging. It would be nice to be able to delegate it to someone else 😅
Thanks for the hugs Robert, Ann and Lucy
Thanks Jen and Ann
People will understand. I don't know anyone who hasn't been effected by covid-19 on some level. Pandas are listening and are here
Thank you John 💚
Thank you Mandy and Hazel
Thank you Manda, Vana, Jen and Silke
hehe. Such is the beauty and messiness of being human: sadness, overwhelm, tears, awkwardness. In my past life I was a pebble. I didnt emote. Incarnating as a human is much more colorful. :)
Thank you Love, emotions are important even if difficult at times
Thank you for the hugs Maria, Ann, sonny, Lucy and Hazel
It's a highly stressful time for all because feelings and emotions vary on a daily basis.
most of the world films the same. You are not alone
Thank you nixiblu, I'm glad I'm not alone in this
Thank you Hazel
Thank you John
It is super upsetting how little people are doing through all this. I feel like we are in the super small percentage of people that don't go out & “do stuff*.
You're right. People should take the virus more serious. Take care of yourself.💜
I know Manda, seems like so few of us are doing everything we can to stop the spread
I know me, thank you I will
Thanks for the hugs

That's a long walk John!
Thank you Silke and Albertjne for the hugs
Padley Gorge is lovely. I sometimes walk out there from the flat

Half out and had to go to A&E. Anyway, I want to get a tubal ligation but I'm 25 and child free so we all know how that goes.
It's not like I've known for 8 years that I don't want a child.
Also my depression first started around the time I started taking the pill
She said shes going to refer me but unlikely it will be accepted. Thank you for the hugs J, tEnT and Max
Thank you mercy
Good luck! I am so glad I had a tubal ligation.
Thank you Manda, I hope so because I'm tired of all this
Thanks for the hugs Natalie and Anon
Have you had the implant in the arm. They last 3 years. I've had 5. (3 versions) I would recommend you look at it
I've not but I believe it uses the same hormones. I can give it a go if they refuse me.
Thanks for the hug Shelley
Thank you Paul
Quiz sounds fun
Thanks for the hug me
Thank you nixiblu and Alicia
Thank you Paul and P
You are so good at it. Maybe you need a new challenge
Thank you John, I don't think a challenge would help because it's not because it isn't challenging enough.. I just feel pressured because it feels like work now
It's not fun anymore
Or relaxing. I just feel exhausted.
Thank you Claire, me and Ann
I know exactly what you mean. I've stopped writing because of feeling this way, after like 20 years of writing. I've stopped completely for five years,and it felt like an end of a world
to me. if I'm not a writer, who am I? There was grief, and there was also relief. A feeling of freedom that's hard to put into words. But. Lately I've been getting these pangs again, the little sparks of desire to write. Like I said , it's been
five years. This is not an attempt of an advice or anything. I have no idea what I'm talking about. I don't know if I'll ever finish writing anything ever again. Just sharing. Maybe a break is ok. Maybe a very long break is ok. Whatever happens, you
are valid and important whether you draw or never hold a pencil again. You are still you. And you are amazing.
Sometimes stepping away from stuff like that for awhile can help you to appreciate it even more later. Or to find something else that you like even more 🙂
Thank you Alicia, I hope you find your passion in writing again
Thank you Jen, perhaps I will
Understand what you talking about and I hope later you'll find yourself enjoining it like you did before
Thank you Ira
In any of my art if I'm not inspired to work on a piece or anything like that. I study the fundamentals and try to improve my skills.
Sometimes blocks crop up, I find if you fight them, they last longer. Just step back from it, if you know in your heart that the art will return, then it will.
I think I just need to take the pressure off and just doodle
Sounds like a good idea!
Thank you me and John
Thank you Claire and Ann
Thought it was only me who used Disney songs as my happy place!
Haha not just you Paul
My littlest made me toast, put on Disney Hits on Aleca, gave me a hug and walked off the other morning, said I was always eating alone so he wanted to make me breakfast. I so nearly cried, the first really kind thing someone has done for me in so lon
also it seems like the songs of Frozen 2 is turning into the soundtrack of my life. Somethings never change / do the next right thing!
That's very sweet of him 💚
