Art Anxiety

Hi everyone!

I'm new here but by the looks of the community, I think I'll rather enjoy this!

I was wondering if anyone else has this problem. I've been drawing for years and have got, I think, pretty good at it for being self-taught. As a matter of fact, anything creative used to get my blood flowing. I love all forms of art and especially love trying my hand at everything.

However, for the past 3 years, any thought of engaging in any kind of artistic endeavour sends me into a complete panic attack. Just the mere thought of picking up my pencils, paintbrushes, writing, etc, etc, makes me want to run for the hills and bury my head.

Anyone else go through this? If so, what do you do to alleviate it? I'm so out of practice now that I"m sure I'm back to stick figures and I'm not happy.

Any feedback would be greatly appreciated! :vs_cool:

I know where you are coming from. One thing that helped me was when I patented a proportional drawing tool so that when I do animals and faces, that took a lot of my worries away. That is a very large part of making your art look real.
