Rejections sting. A lot. Especially when it is one after another. And especially when you are proud of the work you have submitted.
It is so hard sometimes to keep doing what you doing and believing in yourself when there is no validation of your work. I am not getting all soppy on you - i knew this career path won't be easy but sometimes its hard to deal with and you find yourself thinking that may be you are just not cut out for it and its not worth trying. Art is such a lonely business and being stuck with your own head, fears and doubts 24/7 doesn't help it.
But then again. I am not ready to give up just yet.
So i would like to present to you two of my new characters. I don't have the backgrounds for them just yet but i wanted to share the work process and give these guys an introduction.
Mikhail. Has a severe condition - he cries all the time. May be because he feels lonely.
Lola. Loves to dance even though she has big feet and doesn't have a perfect body.
I originally made her as a gift but ended up keeping her because i was afraid she won't be liked.
