New project! Create a Character Design Portfolio!
Happy new year and welcome to the new twenties! As tradition dictates, I stayed up until midnight, had alcohol, and had a nice, quiet party at home. Didn’t drink too much, so I didn’t wake up hungover, but I did wake up with much little and much less quality sleep. STILL managed to get upContinue reading “Three Hour Work Day Challenge: Day 6”
Timers! There’s a reason why you set timers! Is it to keep yourself from quitting your task early? Sure, I guess, I thought so anyway, but sometimes, more importantly, they keep you from going too far over! Learning Time (I don’t know how long, but definitely WELL over 30 minutes) More Loomis Method studies! I’mContinue reading “Three Hour Workday Challenge: Day 4”
So, looks like I’ll be failing this challenge somewhat this week. The art gallery I’m working at is currently setting up the new show so, I have to leave early to go to services beforehand.

Whenever I got paid to make a custom piece of art forContinue reading “Coffee with Art: Commissions and Character Portraits”
I’m trying to get back in the habit of drawing for 30 minutes every day again. Aiming to try for 30 days in a row (yes, I know the holidays are coming up, that’s not the point). Why a red panda? I don’t know, they just seem to be everywhere. My favorite anime, Aggretsuko, isContinue reading “Coffee and Art: Red Panda”
Aaaaaand I’m back. I’m currently still playing WoW, and currently farming fire elementals in Arathi. But that doesn’t mean that’s ALL I’ve been doing. I’ve also been working, and with whatever energy remains from work, I’ve been painting. I’ve finished my copy of Caravaggio’s “David Holding the Head of Goliath” a couple months ago: So,Continue reading “Quick Update: My Copy of David and Goliath”
