Im burnt out and out of ideas
it started like around 3 weeks after I did some drawing spree, when I draw something I never finish it I got easily burnt out and when I tried going back to that art I began losing interest in it , maybe its because I draw too much for straight 2 weeks? Should I rest for at least a month or week? I dont know what to do, I feel like I cant draw anymore and it can hinder my progress towards my goals, and also one thing I tried looking in pinterest for some reference but still no go. Im kinda frustrated about it
Burnout is a real thing that can be challenging and frustrating to deal with. Its actually fairly common so don't be too hard on yourself. There are a number of techniques to help get through a burnout phase, I have included a few that have worked for me.
1. Go back to the basics. Rather than trying to create something new, take some time to hone your skills. I find that reviewing technique helps me to improve generally and can spark my creativity again.
2. Re-discover your passion. There is likely something that got you interested in art in the first place. Try to reconnect with whatever it was that got you started down this path.
3. Think outside of yourself. As opposed to drawing something for you, try doing something for someone else. Turning the focus of your art to someone else can help you break out of this phase. Perhaps you can do some freelance work, or mentor someone else, or draw something to pay homage to someone you care deeply about. I find that by thinking outside of myself and doing things for others I often end up better off personally.
