Edit: I polished it a bit. You can see the before and after here: [link]

Sorry for being so inactive lately, I'm struggling with life (that sounds kind of cheezy). I don't know if I want to continue my career as an artist and I am worrying about every aspect I should probably not worry about :[ Depression doesn't help much either.

As some of you know, I started an online shop in decoration, accessories and jewelry: [link] It feels good taking my mind off drawing, I might keep doing this once it starts being profitable.

Anyway- have a sketch. I might work it out but I actually like the rough look...

well, you are a reference to me, I love your work. and I'm 30 years old, have no job, and start wondering the same things you do. Lack of skill, mostly. But we can overcome that by drawing more, specially drawing from life. But about giving up, what else other than drawing could i do? I could turn my back to illustration, but that would also make me unhappy... it would be like giving up talking...
Anyway, I had a job interview last week (for which i'm pretty sure i won't be called back) and they asked me for some reference illustrators i liked. These were the ones I chose: 
"James Jean

Shaun Tan

Odile van der Stap

Niroot Puttapipat"

I appreciate the honesty in your description of this piece. It's kind of nice to know that other people struggle too. :)
There's a lot of wonderful color choices here, particularly the warmth of her nose. Beautiful work.
