Right. So. I've been animating a lot lately. Trying really hard to improve. The problem is. . . . . .I don't draw anymore. It has been a full year since I really drew. When I do draw, it's just patterns on a paper towel at work when it's slow (I do freelance and work at a local grocery store). I do strictly 3D and only did 2D when I had to in school. I like to draw, but I have the problem of only doing it when I'm in the mood. Plus, I am WAY more creative when it comes to animation. Work, freelance and animation take up my free time.
I know an animator needs to be able to draw regardless of their chosen medium. I also know there is plenty of information on this very subject online. I just want some advice from actual people. How do you get through art block this deep? How do I fit it in with my other things I do (learning Arnold, improving my rigging, animating, freelance)?
Also I'm not afraid to start from the bottom. I did in school, and I'll do it again.
