Taking a Breather

So I haven’t updated in a couple days.. This is mainly due to exhaustion. My last 2 daily sketches (which I did not post here) were not up to par with the quality I’d like to display, and my attention to detail was steadily dropping. I’ve found that it’s more challenging than it seems to work a digital painting job for 8 hours a day, and then come home to spend a few more hours doing these challenges. I can’t whip up something quick and be proud of the result- not yet anyway. All my challenges I have done have probably taken no less than 2 hours each. I want to be able to build up my speed and eventually have no problem doing a drawing a day on my free time. But it can’t be done right away. I need to learn to pace myself, can’t just run at it full speed.

SO, I will be taking a break over the weekend. Actually, kinda forcefully since I won’t be anywhere near a computer. I’ll be off camping and hopefully clearing my mind and refreshing my senses. Perhaps even a few pencil sketches will come of it. Anyway, just wanted to let my few followers what’s up, and you can expect more updates this coming Monday.

Thanks everyone!

Day 11: Turning Point in Your Life

My transition in which I "changed sides". Evolving your art style isn't always an easy thing to do, but like a lot of artists say, it is most beneficial to you in the end. This transition didn't happen overnight. It took years of practice- breaking free from the norm, and studying new art techniques I let myself discover in the process. While it seemed everyone around me tried so hard to copy the works of anime, I looked in a direction I had not glanced over since I was maybe 10 years old: Western comic art. I still don't feel I've reached my comfort zone in sense of style, but I do know that I feel more confident and happy about my work than I did when I was drawing anime.

Day 10: Favorite Candy

Reese's Peanut Butter Cups

Been doing a lot of simple drawings the past few days. This is due to a mix of being really busy and burning myself out. I'm not used to drawing every single day. I love it, but getting into the habit is difficult. Guess that's the point of the challenge, right? Let's keep on going!

Day 4 failed, but Day 5 makes up for it

Not even gonna bother posting the horror that was Day 04 (Your favorite place)
But instead I will post Day 5, which I am damn proud of. I don't think I've ever drawn something as amazing as this. Today is not a day of modesty for me.. I feel I have reached a new milestone in my art skill.

Day 05: Your best friend
