Timelapse Tuesday #30: Consuming Feelings + Art Talk

Check out my Patreon for more content related to this illustration!

Art Process & Talk

Hi everyone and welcome back to Timelapse Tuesday! Oh my God, 30 episodes this year!? Wow! Thank you so much for everyone who has watched, liked and read this weekly series of mine! It has been a wonderful challenge to create and keep up and I hope to continue going! I broke out of my routine and illustrated a male portrait instead!

This episode was more of a chance to talk to you all about how I take care of myself when I’m close to burning out. As a freelance artist, it’s important to create content like webcomic pages and videos, and promote it continuously along with building up commissions and shopkeeping. All these projects began to overwhelm me so I took a step back and reevaluated each one. I took stock of not just the positive impact of each one, but the tasks and workload they brought on.

I go over it during the video, but I made some changes to my content to avoid burning out. One good way I gauge if I’m burning out is by checking my weekly tasks on my Bullet Journal: if I see the same tasks transfer over a few week I will either finish them or check why they’re not done. I’m also trying to get into the habit of making a reset day that is just for relaxing and reseting myself (that doesn’t necessarily involve video games).

Thank you so much for reading and I’ll see you all for tonight’s Art Stream!
