Marker Challenge: 186-200

Hit another milestone by making it to 200 daily marker drawings. The drawings for the last couple of weeks are not as grand as I'd like but they are signs of continued progress. I finished with masks for now and moved onto a variety of subjects and a couple studies.

New Year, Still Going Strong

Happy Belated New Year! The old year is over, the new year started, and I'm still going strong with my daily drawings and the marker challenge. For the last two weeks I've been doing mostly original pieces, which I admit is a little challenging coming off of Pok├ęcember. I got used to having a list as a starting point for images, so when I have to resort to my own inspiration it takes a bit more work. Also, I don't always give that much time and effort to plan my pics, hence my original images can be pretty simple in concepts and execution.

I wanted to take a break from fanart for a while and do some original ideas. Here are what I have for the first two weeks. I started with a simple sword, then a demon from a random character generator, and eventually I started doing masks.














So, I still need to work on doing more studies and refilling my creative reservoir. I have an idea to do some illustrations from myths and fairy tales, but I need to take time to plan, thumbnail, and do some referenced studies so the pieces are better. And I want to continue with the masks, but I want to push them. I also want to do more standalone and larger pieces, not just the 6x6 in. dailies I have been doing. We'll see if I can do that.
