Ok folks today we’re gonna talk about the importance of starting over.
I was loathe to post that first attempt online because… well, look at it. It feels stale and stagnant, almost even forced. I was up till 3am last night trying to improve it and make it fit the image I’d had in mind when I first started it. When I finally went to bed, I thought maybe I’d gotten somewhere with it, but another glance at it in the morning revealed to me how woefully wrong I was. Despite the amount of work I’d put into it, I knew just from looking at it that I wanted to try again.
So yeah, abandoning that hour and a half of work felt like cutting off my right arm (sorry couldn’t resist), but it had to be done. And look how much better off my second attempt turned out to be! Instead of focusing so obsessively on the placement of figures, I went for a looser, slightly less realistic style, and I’m much happier with how it turned out. There’s life, warmth, and affection in it.
Please remember this, friends—sometimes we can pour hours of time into something, but if it has to be let go, then let it go. Oftentimes it is better to start with a fresh beginning than to keep pouring sweat and tears into a lost cause.
(also, in case you were wondering, this is fanart for my favorite jeanmarco fic ever and i’m going to post the final colored version probably tomorrow night)
i love your sabriel a load like i know you havent done any since forever so this will be really random but yeah. i really love it i think its brilliant
