Alright I think I will try one of these introduction posts I am seeing! Hi I am Briar, but you can call me Shrimp. I use they/them pronouns!
I live in Oregon and I go to school for sculpture currently. My professional background is in prop and costume work for film but right now I am mostly making art about ecology, for class or for fun.
I also post on instagram https://www.instagram.com/arealshrimp/
Anyway I'm getting very close to finishing the written parts of my finals so hopefully I can get back to posting art soon!!! Hoping to catch up on the #dailysketchallenge in between projects, the work being put out so far has been great!
Everything is terrible right now because I've been in research paper hell for the last week straight and it's still not done and due tonight!!!
this is a piece i wrote a few years back about planting food: https://spray.no-leverage.com/today-20160523.html
this is the OC i've been using for my icon lately btw. still really enamored with them and have absolutely been vibing with 'plastic-eating mute full of magnets, ball bearings, and black sludge'. tbh, i want to make a slightly different smaller version of them to use as a sona.................................
An addition to the last...retoot? boost? I think you're always good enough and always ready, if you're open to accepting your current skill level and doing the research on methods you're unfamiliar with.
If you accept that your at is the way it is now and learn to love the act of making it, you can enjoy what you make while actively striving for improvement
Something I'm delighted to discover at this point in my art development:
Being "good enough" does exist, and being "ready" for something you're working yourself up to talking is possible, but you can only arrive to those points if you truly invest in making all your mistakes as early and plentifully as possible. As the saying goes: fail early and fail often.
