What to Expect In February

So it’s February….now what? Some people had the impression that once January was over, and I was done with my challenge that  I would stop posting. Totally not true! In fact, I have planned to dedicate each month to a specific theme or challenge to help me grow as an artist, and reach my goals.

January was a warm up– an exercise in building confidence in my art, expressing creative thought, and showing commitment. February, is all about structure and study. What that means is, finding a drawing and posting schedule I can commit to long term, and focusing on studies designed to develop my skills in areas I’ve struggled with.

Because I want to focus more time on learning what I’m studying, and also because I want to publish finished works to add to my gallery, I’ll no longer be posting daily drawings. Instead, I’ll be publishing new content, every Monday and Thursday, starting Feb 9th. In the meantime, between posts,  I’ll  also be publishing process files, much like this, but of course, more detailed, so that you can follow the process of my work, start to finish.

Stars-ProgressMy process posts will including notes, and sometimes shares of things, people, and or articles that serve as inspiration to the process.  Overall though, I hope to make it more interesting for you! And as always, enjoy!

  1. Thats so awesome! I literally just found you this year on deviantart and im in love with your art. You’ve inspired me to try sketching everyday because i have no confidence in my art (which is bad considering what i want to become haha) i hope i can stick with it just like you did. Thank you soooo much, truly amazing.

  2. Would you ever think of including with your process posts, how exactly you did it? I’ll draw stuff in Photoshop, but then I never know how to really make it pop, or render it to look alive. I’m also terrible at shading and lighting sometimes. Basically, can you just teach me to be as talented as you are? haha

  3. Lol yes, I’ll try to be as detailed as possible. Drawing for me is a very thought-heavy process. Much like putting the pieces of a puzzle together, there’s a lot of work that goes into collecting ideas into a concept or drawing that works. It’s a learning process for me too, so I’ll be going into detail about the steps I take, the tricks I use, ect that lead up to the final piece.

    If you don’t mind my asking, what types of drawings do you enjoy the most? Like, do you favor drawing people, or objects, things like that?
