Stuff has been up and down for me as usual on the mental health train. I find I get overwhelmed quickly, especially when I anticipate the amount of time required to finish a piece of artwork.

I spend between 1 hour and 20 hours per art, but more often 5-9 hours. I've got nearly 30 new charms I want to design and just knowing the number of small things, even if they only take an hour or two each, makes me nervous! Having large illustrations I want to do just take so long, I get a bit anxious to start.

What about you guys? Do you find anticipating long (in terms of time) things make you nervous? Maybe I have too many ideas?? I'm curious how other artists view this fact.

I love your warrior cat drawings!!!! I print them off in color (I promise I am not saying my own art work) so I can use your awesome shading skills to help me figure out cat's facial structure.
