Weekly review - Week 7

What I have completed this week :

He Sparks MEGA Joy!

He Sparks MEGA Joy!

Reyes also helps killing Moleskine sketchbooks. LOL I have already done with the first one.

I have made a decision to stop posting illustrations on Tumblr. From now on, all illustrations will be posted directly to my website - artsyblacksheep.com. If you wish to receive update notification, you can PM me your email address, I will add you on my newsletter group. I won’t spam you and you will only be receiving emails relating to updates on the website. I will also push blog posts to Tumblr, so you can still see update notices via Tumblr.

I will still post stuff on Tumblr, answer meme, etc, please continue sending meme and ask to me. :) I’ll only stop posting drawings directly on Tumblr. There are many reasons why I made this decision, one of the major reason is - I paid for the domain name and website, it would be a waste of money if I don’t work on it regularly. And, it will certainly help simplifying my life! :D

Weekly review - Week 6

What I have done this week:

  • Started a new one page comic (what?)

  • Started inking said comic (60% done)

  • Did line exercise every day

  • Completed 18/50 of the @#)#$!)){&%@# project

The !#$%)@#)@ project was going strong for the first few days then I kind of forgot why I was doing it, which was super annoying. Phase 1 is to get into the habit of “DOING” it. The main purpose is not to draw pretty images.

Hopefully I can finish the one page comic this week. I didn’t plan to do it so soon, I thought I wasn’t ready but hey we’re never “ready”, right?

I will post Reyes pancake this week, it is time to move on. And, I really should update the website. LOL There are a few drawings I can share.

Weekly review - week 5

What have I done this week? …….

  • 90% done with Reyes Pancakes ( I think he is so done with me as well)

  • refining the rough drafts of the Tarot Cards, still a long way before reaching the final draft stage

  • started the #%}£?! Project . I can f*#king do it

  • found the model I loved.

I think I enjoy doing warm up exercises so much more than actually drawing. It is almost zen. I can also see improvement, now I can draw perfect vertical lines using charcoal pencil, well, most of the time ! (Look, I can handle charcoal pencils, something I couldn’t do when I first started!) It is also getting easier to use overhand grip and drawing with my shoulder, in fact, I found it difficult to control my pencil using my wrist … which is a good news. That’s something I thought it would be impossible to achieve. :)
