Need More Work

29 01 2012

For the past few months after having my first baby, I’ve been trying to find the time and patience for 3D modeling. I’m back here because I want to start writing on here again. As some of you may know, I started another blog over a year ago called, “Baby and the Geek”. It’s more on my experiences in life with being a wife, new mom, and geek.

Lately, though, I’ve been yearning for some artistic stimulation. I’m going to take this slow and just work when I can. Model when I can. Collect reference when I can.

I’m still getting used to taking care of a now 10 month old baby, so things are drastically different for me than ever before. The importance of maintaining my own happiness and identity separate from motherhood is very high, as I am currently a stay at home mom.

I hope that someone out there starts reading and commenting as I’m sure I will have lots of questions and run into a lot of issues. I’ll be also trying to post my progress on Polycount. My username there is LadyDustBunny. I feel like a newbie all over again because I haven’t really done a lot of art in a while.

So here’s hoping for more posts here, more discussion, and more art!

My wife and I have a five month-old baby boy and this is something we’re both working at also. I know this is something she really relates to as a writer and artist who is used to having large chunks of time to devote to her work. Really I think the experience just forces us to adapt. If we insist on having the same conditions as before we’ll never get anything done (I say we because we’re both writers and we share taking care of our boy). It might mean being prepared to just do 5 or 10 minutes here and there, or just using media which are more suited to fast, direct work. Most important is to just enjoy what you do when you get to do it. Don’t place unreasonable expectations on yourself or your art. Just do what you can and love it.
