Yet another slow year of art, 'cause I've been very busy this year.
Last year was a lot of hand and gesture studies. This year was the year of practicing drawing digitally, applying what I learned last year to the pictures in my head (so those silhouette drawings and random poses are using what I learned from gesture practice, for instance), and LOTS of WIP's that I end up shelving or scrapping because my perspective or anatomy skills weren't yet strong enough to continue. Shoulders and arms, man. Shoulders and arms.
I began practicing face studies since faces, ESPECIALLY noses in perspective, are HARD for me to draw, but hjdfkjgahdls--
I began drawing "fake screenshots" mostly to challenge myself. If I was going to procrastinate with my WIP's, projects, and studies, I might as well draw something I never tried drawing before, like mouth shapes, different expressions, and minimizing the amount of strokes I use to draw lines. Struggling with fake screenshots reminds me why I should go back to studying.
