Some fan art

I know I haven’t been good about posting to my blog. Winters are generally hard on me, and I get art-blocked a lot.  But art is always on my mind, and even days when it’s frustrating, I try to keep at it. Fan art is fun and easy to do for me when I’m not so motivated.  Here’s some sketches […]

Inktober 2017 – Week Four

This is the last full week of Inktober 2017.  I’m not going to lie, I’m feeling tired.  I feel like I’m in a creative rut, I’m also experiencing serious self esteem issues.  I try new things, and when they don’t seem to work, I fall a little bit. It’s just the way it goes.  

Inktober 2017 – Week Three

Time has been my enemy on this third week of Inktober.  I feel like I’ve been attempting different things with varying degrees of failure and success. It’s obvious to me that I need more practice with elements such as human anatomy, light and shadow and composition.  So basically everything.  I’ve also felt like I don’t have enough time to create […]

Inktober 2017 – Week Two

I’m in the second week of Inktober, and it’s in full swing. I’ve observed elsewhere that leading up to this month, the idea of participating in Inktober was intimidating to me. The challenge is to create 31 drawings… in ink.  I’m a digital artist, it’s the medium I know, love, and am used to. Breaking out of that is a […]

Inktober 2017 – Week One

Inktober 2017 is looking amazing this year, with over a million posts shared so far according to the founder of the challenge, Jake Parker.  I’m glad to be participating this year. As I’ve said before, Inktober gives me an excuse to break out of digital art for a month and use traditional tools like pencils, paper and ink.  In 2015, […]

Sketchbook – Reddit Keeps Getting Drawn

I’m having a small flare-up of carpal tunnel syndrome, and a mild dip in inspiration/motivation for a little bit there.  I’ve still found some time to draw before being completely burned out.  Also, catching up with “The Walking Dead” and taking in “The Crown” on Netflix has eaten up a bit of my spare time.  Does this mean we’ll be […]

Sketchbook drawings – /r/redditgetsdrawn

I mainly use reddit to keep up with whatever interests me at any given point.  I know it has a bit of a bad rap, but I think it depends on which subreddits you visit. There are so many, it’s not difficult to find a sub for a topic you enjoy. I’ve been aware of /r/redditgetsdrawn for a bit, but only […]

Sketches

I take these long breaks from drawing for several reasons. In this case, it started with a flare up of carpal tunnel and my bad back, both problems motivating me to get myself into better shape, pay better attention to my posture and just not be so lazy most of the time.
