Hello, MapleSmoke here (you can call me Maple),

I'm not a professional artist, but I love to draw. My current aim is to improve my skills with traditional media and learn how to create art using a tablet.

My interests include biology, psychology, reading, anime, pokemon and personality typing.

What is inspiration?

on 7 April 2018 at 23:52:53 MDT

As I've probably mentioned (or not), I'm going through artist's block again. Some moments are better than others when it comes to drawing but most of the time, I don't feel satisfied. Not to go into too much detail, but mental health stuff has partly contributed to current feelings of stagnation. Life got overwhelming in the last couple of months. So I've only recently been able to sit and consider what I want to do next (in general).

It's a bit frustrating because I know I can draw 'anything', but I stick to what I know and don't branch out enough.

Also, I'd like to get more involved in the art community but I'm not sure how. Just feels like I'm missing something when I just post things.

Where you guys get inspiration for your art?
