  I broke my Wacom Pen while doing this and had to wait two days for the replacement, so, of course, it broke the streak. Still quite like it though. It’s fitting though that this destruction happened in what was supposed to be a week of Nyx. You can see how the next week is shaping up...

This week: (mostly) Theodora. I enjoy drawing the little girl. She’s not in the comic straight away of course, but I am looking forward to the time that little magnet for trouble pops up. Still haven’t found a good solution for her head feathers, but getting there. The dragon was a...

This week: Inks. Weekly themes seem to have become a thing for me. They offer the opportunity to dwell into a specific detail of my art repeatedly and practice without getting bored. I do not know if this heavy ink woodcut style is appropriate for Nyx+Nyssa, but I sure enjoy the effect. Number 12...

The hardest part of getting back into the Daily Sketches was figuring out how to handle the break.  I was very, very tempted to just ignore the broken streak, you know, to just play catch up. But I’d behind for weeks and would get more and more discouraged. And even if I did catch up –...

This was the straw that broke that camels back. I joined creaturenary,  because it looked neat… And found out the hard way that these month long prompts are not for me. I broke my streak, hard, and now I have to think about what to do about this,  because I’d love to continue doing...

I downloaded a few apps with pose-able anatomy dolls and started using them as reference for poses. It does indeed make a difference. I also thought I’d found a neat colouring way with the Samus picture, but it isn’t really working out for more natural characters. As usual, you can see...

Daily Art 18.12. – 24.12.2017

Started playing with colours! And Inks! I quite like inking but it does look different from the pencils. Not quite sure which one I like better.  Still trying to figure out a quick and still attractive colouring style, but well,  I am quite far away from it. But I am amused that I am still getting...

Daily Art 11.12.-17.12.17

My art’s definitely getting better – one of the biggest things I figured out this week was that I actually want from my art: Emotion, acting and story telling – short, I ask myself why an onlooker should care about the people in the picture. I also started experimenting with like...

Daily Art 04.12.-10.12.17

This week… didn’t work out as well as the last one. Stress at work had a negative impact on my art. Still, I made a few pictures I genuinely like and art has been done every day. The art must flow. Yet I did a lot of experimenting. I have a lot to learn about colouring. And I found out...

Daily Art 27.11. – 03.12.17

D

This daily art practice is so, so useful.  It trains me to finish artwork – I’ve always had a bad habit of just… abandoning art halfway through, and I cannot do that with the sketches I do for this challenge. Looks like even I can learn persistence! The second advantage is that I...
