ARTBLOCK - please share your story!

Journal Entry: Wed Jun 22, 2016, 11:04 AM





hey guys! i wanted to ask anyone out there who has experienced art block to share their story (either here or, if you prefer, privately through notes). i've gotten so many questions about it and i'm considering creating some kind of resource (either written or video) with information and tips on how to handle it. for anyone who's been through art block, i'd love to know:
  • what do you think was the underlying reason? lack of ideas, perfectionism or fear of failure, etc?
  • are you a perfectionist or hard on yourself?
  • do your friends/family support your creative endeavors?
  • were you just starting out or were you in college / working as an artist?
  • if you got past it, was there anything that helped it go away or did it happen on its own?
anything you guys could share would be great :] thanks so much for reading!!

Aloy - Horizon Zero Dawn - 3

More concept art of Aloy, the lead character of Horizon: Zero Dawn. I worked on this character together with the rest of the character team for a few months in 2013. It was a huge honor working with Guerrilla Games and their inspiring, talented team! I’m so proud of them and the beautiful game they have created.

These concept drawings make an appearance in this featurette by Sony: www.youtube.com/watch?v=bw5Jnh… and in some of Guerilla Games' presentations.

Aloy - Horizon Zero Dawn
So happy to finally be able to share this! It's some early concept art of Aloy, the lead character of Horizon: Zero Dawn. I worked on this character together with the rest of the character team for a few months in 2013. It was a huge honor working with Guerrilla Games and their inspiring, talented team. I loved working on this character! These images can be seen in this neat featurette about Aloy: www.youtube.com/watch?v=bw5Jnh… as well as in the artbook that comes with the collector's edition of the game!

I purchased your Artbook and its REALLY amazing and helpful *-* Iam planning oto change to digital art and your tips are very helpful to have a good start. The artworks are beautiful and unique and especially the one underwater where the giant trees rising up out of the bluish scenery catched my eye.

I hope I will become as good as you one time and find the balance between hobby and work :)
