That is, one painting per day, at 30 minutes maximum for each piece. I decided to start one of those 30 day challenges for myself - mainly to work on speed and accuracy. Also I want to improve in depicting character expressions.
Taking an idea from an art stream I was watching a few days ago, (by Bobby Chiu, who I consider to be an incredible and highly inspirational artist), I picked out two features/expressions for every face or character that I will paint for this challenge. I think that will help to keep it simple and allow myself enough freedom to interpret the character's features on the fly. (I'll post the two guidelines along with every painting I post).
1. Get as close to "finishing" a character in the allotted time.
2. Be more consistent and focused with practice, and to develop good work ethic for my personal projects.
3. Have some form of improvement in my painting style by the 30th day.
And so it begins. I am open to any comments/tips you care to give!
