    Doing Moirail's shoes I could just alternate thin layers and by the time I'd done one shoe the other would be ready, but glueing the lace onto mine is much more waiting. *pouts*

    I'm so mad. I'm so fucking mad. I'm making a tunic and was on track to do a one day build. I woke up at 6 this morning and couldn't go back to sleep, so I started cutting fabric. Had exactly the right amount of gold thread, didn't have any navy thread, had about a spool of rust thread left, and those are the three colors used in this piece. Worked for six hours, ran out of gold thread, went to the store to buy gold and navy (and hang out with my mom for a couple hours). Got home, started sewing again, and ran out of rust thread with ten inches of applique left to sew. At 11 at night. When everything is closed. I can't move forward with the structural seams until the applique is done, and I can't get more thread for the applique until tomorrow morning, so I'm sitting here 89% done with something I was on track to finish in a single day, with no way to finish it until tomorrow.

    Honestly I have no reason to be mad. There's no reason to get it done in a single day except for the bragging rights that I made an entire appliqued linen tunic in less than 24 hours. I'm just mad because my record is two days from washing fabric to wearing the garment and I was going to beat that.

    Trying to use clip studio's 3d capabilities to help with posing and it is surprisingly difficult to give a character bad posture

    Probably because it's limited to 'reasonably feasible' poses. You can disable angle limits, which will let you rotate the bones more.

    Sometimes i want to write in really weird tenses and then i remember i can't even stay consistent between present and past tense and then i tear my face off in frustration
    but then i am locked in eternal internal battle between pretentious experimental bullshit and marketable enjoyable reading experience

    If you're not trying to sell it, try pretentious experimental bullshit a few times! Smaller audience, but there definitely is one.

    I'm sad that I don't think I can pull off the weird Heinoustuck/Ticktockstuck body horror thing for an AU I'm working on. I write more than I draw, and in writing it's easy to forget who has what weird non-canonical feature.

    I don't remember particularly asking for advice or judgement on this, it's an entirely internal battle. Considering I can't seem to finish anything these days the point is moot anyhow. Can't get stuck on what the formal framework of your style is if you don't get out of the concepting stage!

    Just came back to a really big picture after a break and I really don't like it anymore.
