December ProgBlog #2: less ramp, more ramp, less prog

posted on: Tuesday, 14 December 2021 @ 11:06am in

The last major gymnastics event for the year is over, which took a lot of pressure off.

I finished the photobooks, more pressure off.

Then stuff happened with made things ramp up again, and it got so bad that I deliberately didn’t do some mental health stuff that would have helped the frame of mind I fell into because there is literally absolutely no point whatsoever, because I’m wrong and everyone else is right and that’s all there is to it no matter what.

And after I got over the thing that put me into the depressive spiral in the first place (spoiler: not actually over it) I felt really annoyed about not having progressed any of my projects so I stayed up late once more ostensibly to try to get some prog for the blog (I really need to stop staying up late and waking up early, apparently lack of sleep is pretty bad).

still sculpting

I always have serious issues with…well…everything I guess. Now we look like leg day isn’t considered important. I started roughing the torso to escape from the hands for a bit after I finally worked out thumbs are longer than I thought and I’ll have to fix my base models. I’m struggling a bit with his build as Corax are generally slender or wiry but I figure he’ll have some toning seeing as he’s a pirate captain.

Insert usual whining here about how I’m really struggling to find my feathers.

same problem as before

The moral of this story is most definitely just make a freaking guide layer if you think you need to.

I’m going to try and keep the progblogs going over the rest of Silly Season just to keep up the habit and on the off chance I get a burst, but at the moment I don’t know if I’m going to get too much prog done til it’s over.
