self discipline

Hearts to March

RABBIT RABBIT!Another month bites the dust!  Between surviving Valentine's day and meeting deadlines, February was a very busy month indeed.  Already, this month sees no rest in sight for me either!  Currently on my plate are three very different commissions, an acting gig, and seeemingly endless work for my book.  AND, on top of all of this is a my little video gaming addiction fueled by new game releases. ;PI've commented before about how I love the diversity of commissions and that couldn't be more true right now.   Just recently I have had to switch gears in quick sucession from my Valentine's drawing to skull caricature to semi-realistic owl to 100% realistic person.   It's amazing what you can do when you push yourself and stretch the limits of your capabilities.  More than once on my journey to fame I have stepped over the horizon of my abilities with the trepidation of falling into the abyss, only to find more ground to walk on and the dawning of a new horizon.  I don't think I'll ever stop being scared, but as long as I don't let that get in the way, I am ok with that. While I never let fear stop me from drawing, I must admit, I do let video games get in the way sometimes.  It's common for me to spend an entire day gaming away.  (More than once it's been an entire week!)  This month is going to see me having to practice self-discipline like crazy when it comes to setting the sticks down and getting to work.  I've been looking forward to the release of Okamiden since it was a rumor!  On top of that, there's Pokemon White/Black and a few titles recently released like Marvel vs. Capcom 3 and (with otaku shame) Hyperdimension Neptunia.   Hopefully the withdrawals wont be too bad (not to mention, even if I had all the time in the world to game, my wallet can't afford it).If ever given the chance, I would love to do character designs for a video game.  The melding of my two favorite things would send me to the stars!  Creating new characters is always fun;  to see them come alive through and game  play as them would send me to another galaxy!!  Dreams like make the whole video game self-discipline thing a bit easier to manage, I think.Well, I do suppose I should be getting back to work.  Cheers to a new month friends!  I leave you with promises for better blog updates this month and last month's Valentine's day illustration by your's truly.  XOXO! :)Edited 03/01/11 at 11:55 for grammer.
