30. failure is part of the recipe

Spent about 10 hours making these 3D dungeon animations. I just got lost and stopped working on them, it felt bad. I felt like I failed. Or like I have this loose thread that I ought to get back to.

This harsh judgement is so.. harsh! 

“failure” is part of the recipe. I’m a creative person and that doesn’t mean everything I do will pan out. sooooo relax and make stuff, expect some of it to be experimentation that doesn’t lead to a finished piece.

If everything I do creatively must lead to a finished piece, I’ll waste a lot of time finishing experiments.

Let go. just make.

“The seed of your next art work lies embedded in the imperfections of your current piece. Such imperfections (or mistakes, if you’re feeling particularly depressed about them today) are your guides — valuable, reliable, objective, non-judgemental guides — to matters you need to reconsider or develop further.”

— David Bayles and Ted Orland, Art and Fear.
