:icondevita-group: :iconcreationarium: :iconfemalemuscle:
Last year I bought a coffee cup set with DC's superhero logos on them. It's four cups that are perfect for moka cofee as far as size goes. Not too small, and not those enormous flagon-sized coffee mugs that Americans use. Wait, here they are:…

So I have this little ritual of mine. Since the Batman cup is rarely used, and usually it's for guests, and the Flash cup is used by my mother (and it's now chipped on one edge, damnit), there's two left, Superman and the Green Lantern, my favorite superheroes, and I use them alternately.
When the day starts, I check how I feel. If I need determination and willpower to get to the pages because I am in that unpleasant mood where I cannot find the right start, I use the Green Lantern cup. That's because that hero's power originates from willpower, and sipping coffee from that cup creates a symbolic connection with the concept of tapping one's willpower, so to speak. If I have the right will and just need to stay focused and grind my way through panels, I drink from the Superman cup. He's superstrong, superfast, represents the energy I need.

So there you go, this is one of my little daily rituals. I wonder if others have such rituals too..

Aw thanks!

dumb question... but do you do occasional commissions?
TazioBettin Featured By Owner Nov 23, 2014  Professional Digital Artist
Not dumb at all! Yes I do, from time to time. Not in this exact moment because I'm very busy with comic pages, but in the future I'm definitely going to. Not sure when, probably next year.
If you don't mind, however, in the meantime I would like to recommend my friend :iconsaniika: who is incredibly skilled and is currently taking commissions. Believe me you won't regret it!
