I've been drawing catgirls for most of this year because art block + stress has killed me. Does anyone have tips as to how I can get back to normality?
To find your new normal, you'll want to exercise your willpower and develop the skill to work on art whether you have motivation or not. This is a critical skill I think all people who want to achieve any high skill level at an artform should develop. A habit like that might take you 90 days of making art for at least 15 minutes a day. When a daily habit like that is developed, you feel wrong if you don't work on art daily.

1) Find yourself drawing exercises to warm up with that also improve your draftsmanship.

2) Identify your weakest art skills
Focus on the fundamentals of art. What are the fundamentals?

3) Stay engaged with your artistic journey by consuming content related to skills you'd like to obtain and keep obtaining new levels of skill
Want to learn to draw better and draw people better? Proko is great: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UClM2LuQ1q5WEc23462tQzBg

Want to learn to paint? Bucci has got you covered: https://www.youtube.com/user/marcobucci/featured

What to learn how to learn better? There are methods, detailed by Sycra here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=k0ufz75UvHs

I firmly believe that every artist will benefit from a formal art education. Even if what I linked isn't the style you want to draw in, you need to understand that all great representative artists to some degree followed the formal art education path and built a foundation of skills on which they could develop their own styles. I hope this helps.

My biggest take away from this whole thing has been that the Sailor Moon art style has not aged well. Though making an artstyle that can be consistently animated is a whole new ballpark, mind.

I love how you did the eyes, and not just because I'm autistic in regards to eye design.

Oh yeah, i brought this, I didn't go overboard with eye design this time.

Kitsunes are my new life's joy.


That's some good advice. I wanna draw cat people too.
Cat Peeps / Nekomata are valid too, I already posted both of the ones I've done so far.

Video games are going to be the bane of my existence when it comes to productivity, holy shit.

Anyway, here's my first post: an OC of mine - a bookworm with a penchant for space exploration who's apart of a team of "Starcharters" (that's what he's supposed to be, at least).

Perspective and anatomy is a bit wonky but I think it's decent. The design is still WIP until I can think of some way to make him more distinct.
