Another video has been published. EnJOY!

I've been busy with personal projects, reason why I'm quite active. Also, a bit of depression.

Took one few days ago and feel motivated to finish 3 WHF related stuff (2 paintings, a silly comic). Then I'll focus on some personal projects of mine. ;)

OH BUDDY YOU KNOW I'M UP FOR VIDEOS. And I feel it about the depression. I've been going through my own. But just know I'm always here if you wanna get things off your chest <3

Thank you for your kind words! :3
With work, insomnia, real life problems and unfinished personal projects delayed (digital drawings) I quite loose the good mood and sometimes I need the feel to isolate to take care of myself and try to fix things. And this is why I quite draw lately and don't post nothing here and on Tumblr. On the other side, I get distracted with Source FilmMaker which keeps me up.
I'm sometimes a moody person, but not so frequently. And I noticed I become moody easily if I'm not able to finish a project of mine as soon as possible. This because of lazyness.
Actually I found something to draw on paper with a little motivation; hope this helps. And later I continue with digital stuff.

Oh, yeah I can understand it. For the past week I've been down myself, and because I rely on one source of my happiness, which is really stupid, I know, my depressive thoughts target just that. So it's really been just me trying to distract myself, which hasn't been really effective. But I'm glad you found some motivation <3 I've had a couple ideas for digital pictures, since I can no longer draw on paper, but I still don't have motivation myself. One day xD

We live similar situations. Sometimes listening to favorite music can distract you from depression: when I do this, I also associate images in my mind to what I'm listening to, playing so with fantasy thoughts. I once created my character, Rodney Gadget, under inspiration of a Pink Floyd's song, just to give an example.
Videogames aren't a better way for personal experience: if you're depressed and play a videogame you like, you can stay hours, but don't get enough motivation to draw.
But this may change from person to person.
You need a font of inspiration that make you hyped, excited enough to draw.
And I wish you also get better and find something to draw. C:

Yeah, I learned the thing about the video games the hard way xD I got on one night with the intentions to take screenshots of a couple of my characters, since I created their outfits on there, then my friends got online and I ended up doing hours worth of missions with them. But yeah, I feel like I've gotten better. And trust me, I've had ideas of doing more portraits, but I've never gotten around to it. One day xD and I hope the same to you too <3

Same experience with WHF: I once needed references from the game. It was late evening. Just a couple of screenshots. But then I started to mess around with the Bobbies. And when I left the game, it was 2.00 a.m. already. XD
Now I'm taking a pause with it and finishing some games instead.
About portraits, now that you mention, I have that Arthur portrait I started months ago, but I suspended it due to technical difficulties. Gotta finish it as soon as possible!

Okay, but tbh I really do like the bobbies. They are VERY well made <3 haha jk. kinda. But yeah, I actually had an Arthur portrait in mind, but never got around to it. I also thought about doing some YouTubers I like, or even finally getting around to making some refs, but every time I tried to draw I hated the style xD so I'm bad at that point. But I would love to see the portrait of Arthur you said you started <3

I wonder why the developers didn't keep the Bobbies from the pre-alpha version: they looked scarier. And I'm posing few in Source FilmMaker.
You'll see. ;)
(Spoiler: he looks older in my style)
