I know, I know- SO many gryphons! :D I'm obsessed, what can I say? I'm taking part in this year's ArtSlam over on Livejournal. I started last year's, but wussed out pretty early in the game. This year I'm on hardcore mode, 3 months of dedication to this project. I've already put a week or so into it, so I'm on a roll, just have to keep going.
I've made my other WIP's and projects take a back seat to this project for the time being. I'm going to try to work in some more studies, but as far as the challenges go, I'm going to give them a break for a little while. If one sounds really intriguing I might give it a go, but I find while I work really hard on those challenges, they don't necessarily yield all that much in way of results. Whereas my gryphon project is picking up steam and people are excited about it. I can't get people excited about my one entry in a random contest. It's not my baby, I'm just not PASSIONATE about every contest that comes along. I think people can tell and your artwork suffers. Not to say you shouldn't go outside your comfort zone- that's what my studies will be there for. But I just want to focus on this project for a little while and stop guilt tripping myself when I miss 1 out of the 1,000 contests due this week!
Hopefully you won't get too sick of gryphons by the end of summer! I promise I'll make them varied enough that I'm sure you'll like at least one of them ;)
