Some useless sketch. Late June.
Very short burst of inspiration. Early July.
Jafar, from the manga series Magi. Dedicated to someone I know who also loves the series. Highly disappointed with this, in hindsight. Early August.
I have more, but they're nothing worth showing.

I have been extremely inactive art-wise as of recently. Certainly, I'm busy with non-arts-related things, but not to the point where I don't have time for art. (Actually, I have a LOT of time for art.) I guess the problem is that I require more initiative to start drawing, and that on some level I'm always afraid that once I pick up the pencil I'll accidentally stay up until, like, 3 or 4am (and my sleep schedule is already unstable enough). Maybe the biggest thing, though, is that the enjoyment of doing art is less immediate than the enjoyment of browsing reddit, pixiv, tumblr, etc.. Information and stimulation I can get immediately, whereas drawing is something I enjoy only once I get myself warmed-up, and after a long, tiring day, my immediate urge is to get myself totally absorbed in something interesting ASAP. And currently, that something is not art.
I plan to fix that.
(Baby steps first.)
