I bring this update on a public computer:
The digital sketch challenge, where I draw a new sketch on the computer every day for 30 days, is on hiatus.
My laptop, which I used to make and store the sketches, is having issues with its power supply. Apparently it’s not recognizing its own battery. It doesn’t surprise me, because it’s really fracking old.
Hopefully this issue will be resolved soon! Wish me luck!
I’ve been watching too much Kai.
I can just see Cell taking this pose and saying sarcastically, “Of COURSE, because it wouldn’t be FAIR.”
Day 11 of the Digital Sketch Challenge. Let me know when the countdown thing starts to get annoying, because I have to do this for a total of 30 days.
This is Kaitlin, one of my girls in a current story I’m working on. I won’t say much about the story because it’s actually in revision mode at this time, but I love the characters and the situational comedy that springs from them.
Unfortunately, at the moment, Kaitlin doesn’t seem too funny. In fact, she seems rather panicked…
Day 10 of the Digital Sketch Challenge! and I’m back to my original characters!
This is Roxy. I drew her before, around Day…8, I think? I can’t remember. I’m bad at that.
I wanted her to pose in a way that reflected her as a character, and she IS a strong, independent woman…who has “DFTBA” tattooed on her arm (Ok, part of the reason I did this pose was to show off the tattoo a little). It stands for “Don’t Forget to be Awesome”, and is the catchphrase/creed of Nerdfighters. If you don’t know who they are, go and google it because I don’t believe you.
I’m currently working with her on a short story, and I love how she’s developing! She’s turning out to be very thoughtful and very mature, especially around the topic of death (well, she would have to be, since she had cancer).
However, I hope that my next sketches will have more dynamic poses for my characters. I’m not sure if I want to start drawing full-on action yet, but I’d like to get them slightly more active and…asymmetrical.
Day 9 of the Digital Sketch Challenge, and I’m back to Tack.
I was actually in a bit of a rush to make this, because I want to get back to work on my comic I’m making for my Advanced Painting class. I feel bad for that, but hopefully the quality hasn’t suffered because of it.
