It's me, TheNightKnight (I hope you remember me).
I've been following you on IG for quite a while and loving your pieces for Paths so far :3 And yeah, I feel the same about studying xD What I've been trying to do is set up a project for myself with goals and new difficulties to tackle. I set up appropriate studies for each 'milestone' in my project and slowly work towards the end product, while learning on the way. That helps me, it might or might not help you as well.
Keep the kick-ass art comin'!
