I really didn't want to come to this conclusion, but it's time to face it, I bit off more than I could chew when it came to Atrona. I overachieved, like I always do, and wanted to make something big and amazing for my first comic, but I'm just not capable.
The comic has become a huge source of stress for me, to the point where I find it hard to find any motivation to draw at all. I've struggled with these feelings for over two years, but trying to do a big project like a consistent comic only made me feel more jaded oppose to better.
I want to tell the story of Atrona Robota, but I'm cancelling it, at least for the time being. I will tell it eventually, but first I want to grow as an artist and figure my self out mentally.
I'm going to get back to just drawing whatever I want and have fun with it, maybe do a few small comics and animations for practice but nothing I have to commit fully to. One thing I've wanted to do for a long time is do a few comics with my dnd group, but have always backed off out of fear because all dnd has a bit of plagiarism in it, and I don't want to seem like an uncreative artist.
But I want to get over that because I love our characters and just wanna do stuff with them, even if it comes down to the stories being borderline fanfiction, I'll fully acknowledge that.
In all, this sloppy rant was basically to say I just want to go back to being a normal artist, instead of trying to bind myself to 1 project. Even if I don't have a following, I still feel guilt for stretching this out so long like i'll get back to it soon. I want to better myself and I want to be happy.
