I think there’s pressure as an artist to feel like you should always be doing the best work you’ve ever done but the creative process is fickle. There’s no harm in not drawing sometimes, if you really love art then you’ll never stop having the fire to do it.. but sometimes you just need rest!
Many companies consider artists like lightbulbs you can change once they burned out, but there is also a lot of good guys out there. Finding people you can trust and with who you can build a relationship is key in this industry..
Designing characters for me is not just what the character looks like and is dressed like, but it’s more about the total personality package and how one reacts to a situation..
Just go out, travel whether it's far away or in your neighbourhood, experience things and meet people. Just staying indoors and stuck on your workspace will make your spirit dull and dry..
