HELLO FRIENDS. I bring you my suddenly inspired and late-submission for ArtOrder's Tiny Dragons call for art. I'm feeling goopey, y'all get goopey dragons. Used mostly my poster colors and a little bit of old as crap colored pencil. All on cold-press (which I am honestly suprised survived the excess water I kept plopping down) watercolor paper. I even made a value study to see if it would work. It kinda worked. Not well but....yah.
Birds. It's all birds.
It sucks to realize that the thing you're good at... isn't really something your're good at. Specifically if it's something you enjoy. Like art. I........am not a good artist. I know that. I enjoy, I work hard, but I'm not good at it.
...............AM NOT BURNT UP. Fire is 70% contained!
SPRING FIRE update: It's raining and hopefully the fire will get under control.
I finally have a device that can handle Tusky and oh no now I can be on here more.
I don't often talk about my mental health, but I deal with depression, anxiety, and dermatillomania. I've been using the free version of a CBT app called Pacifica that is designed for depression and anxiety. It has mood- and health-journaling features that have really been helped me recognize thought and behavior patterns, and even some guided meditation that helps me control my thought spirals.
If that sounds like something you might want to try, here is the thing: http://www.thinkpacifica.com/
