At least to begin. I've been working on a few projects that are either past due or due soon. I really underestimated how much free time I would have to draw with the little one around. I find myself contemplating "Should I get to work or hold my daughter for a while?" Guess which choice ALWAYS wins? ;) Going forward I'll definitely be pacing myself better, and won't take on anything that I don't have a god amount of time to complete. Doing anything complex with a less-than-30-day turnaround just isn't gonna happen. I hate turning down work because I really enjoy drawing, but I'll be concentrating more on personal commissions and family time. I'll still be doing official stuff, for sure, but maybe at a more low-key level. I say that now, but then I'll get a notice for another Star Wars gig.... :yoda:

tell me about it. I also hate when I've been working on something for a while and I'm finally nearing it's completion and rush it...always end up turning something that potentially could have been alright into crap real fast hehehe. It's my super power. :D

I honestly feel my work turns out better when I'm under pressure. When I'm forced to do something quickly it tends to have more life to it than something that I labored over for hours. Plus if I spend too much time on something I tend to over-work it and add a little too much, then I have to force myself to stop at some point and I'm never happy with the finished result as I regret having added this or that.

Why can't art be easy? ;)

I tried doing my work much more quickly and I must say...the results are much better. :O :heart: I'm by no means under pressure, but you're right. Less tweaking = better.
