While I have everyone's attention, and before I begin writing my novel of a journal entry, if you all could give me some recommendations of music. Some songs or album you particularly like listening to while being creative, or your favourites, or even whatever you're listening to right now! No judgements (from me anyway), because I'm quite weird and nerdy myself and fairly open to new experiences.
The past couple of months I've been actively drawing
. What I mean by that is I'm drawing with the goal of improving, setting tasks and goals that will surely move me in that direction. As opposed to what I've been doing before with wanting to get better and just drawing with the hopes it'll happen eventually. Which surely works, with it's fantastically epic lows and powerful epiphanies, but slowly and not very well especially when I haven't done any real art study outside of high school (whether or not you could call high school art "real"
). So since February I've been doing figure sketching
most days for half to an hour. I'm working to build that up to each and every day. On top of that I've also worked at little at my
nunchuku skills bow hunting skills computer hacking skills
This has been mostly thanks to Mr.
and his most excellent youtube videos
. There're plenty of great art resources on the tube but where Will excels is in not just talking about how to make good art but how to be a good artist! I tend to play his videos on my other monitor while I art because it's really motivating and quite inspirational (also great for breaking that lonely feeling, ya know the one that sometimes happens). A particular quote that sticks is about how it takes 10 years to become a lawyer or doctor so why should it take any less to become an artist (so much paraphrasing!)
. Anyone who want's to cheek him out I recommend starting off with his "people sketching" series. A great watch and/or listen, you wont regret it!
So I'll be keeping up with actively drawing and will have more things to add to it surely do in the not so distant future! That alongside keeping up with my own stuff, with issues 13 and 14 still in the works, wedding planning
, and the billboard commission that was possibly permanently on hiatus is now back on! Yay hurray!
