TMNT: Bad Times by Ty-Chou TMNT: Bad Times by Ty-Chou
It has been a struggle these past couple months. Especially for art. I have not wanted to draw anything. Seasonal depression got me good and I have been useless. I tried to make myself draw and I actually started with a really happy picture in homes it would lighten my mood. But that pic would not cooperate. Of course this depressing thing came out just fine, so... therapy pic, I guess. The coloring is crap. I am still not quite up to par and I don't have the energy to fix it.

This has nothing to do with my long neglected 2003 fic. I just still have some LeMona feels and I wanted to draw something.

I'm sorry that you're going through a tough time! I love the picture nonetheless ;). Maybe these two articles might help:  Struggling With Your Art?Hi everyone!
So something that's been plaguing me for... well the past couple of years really, is hating my art. I'm talking about it now because it's gotten really bad lately to the point where I'm really struggling to love painting at all. I'm guessing some of you are probably thinking that I shouldn't hate my art, but I'm massively insecure in just about everything I produce - whether it be art, writing, even assignments - and I really do struggle with it sometimes.
But I'm learning that I'm being overly critical. Do you ever open up a half-finished drawing, or story, or poem, and go to start working on it, and then just suddenly realise how awful it is? You try to start editing but all the terrible things about it just close in on you until you're either so panicked or so miserable that you can't even try anymore? And you just stop? I know I do. 
Thing is, it's probably not as bad as you think. The more you look for the bad things - even subconsciously - the more you'll see.
W
 and  Why You Should Draw When You Can't Draw AnythingHow many times has this happened to you?
You're suddenly struck with an urge to draw or write, but when you sit down, nothing happens? Or you might be scrolling through dA and looking at all these amazing pieces and wanting so badly to do something of your own, but you just can't bring yourself to  begin? You're not alone. 
Every creator ever has gone or will go through periods of art or writer's block. It's just something that happens. For this reason the most important thing, before you do anything else, is to remember that it doesn't mean you're a bad creator.  You're not unskilled, you're not getting worse, and it certainly doesn't mean you're never going to be able to draw or write again. Having block does not invalidate you as a creator :) (Smile) In fact at this point, it's almost a rite of passage! But don't ever think that having block means you're bad at what you do.
So. You're blocked. You're probably
.

I hope that your art block gets better soon! Feel free to contact me if you need to vent or something!

It's not an art block. It's that I don't feel well quite often.

I almost made it. Seasonal depression didn't hit me until last month when the snow just. wouldn't. stop. I am working to get better. It's just a slow process.

S.A.D is a bitch.  But draw it out.  I've been in the blackness too, and sometimes drawing a dark, ugly thing can cause some of it to ooze out of you
