So I’ve been ridiculously quiet, and I guess life does that to you. Pretty sad. But my mind is kind of exploding with ideas for storyboards, character designs, and illustrations I’m dying to start working on. I already have a lineup of projects I want to jump on, and in the meantime study anatomy and figure drawing. I also need to work on creating backgrounds, versus the boring whiteness behind my figures. :/ I decided to try out this challenge, a “100 themes” challenge, with 100 different prompts for either writing a story or creating a drawing. So I decided to write a short story for each prompt and create an illustration to go with it. My first prompt was “Introduction” so expect to see that around here soon. I already have a good idea of what I want to create for that. I found a free download of Paint Tool SAI for my wacom bamboo (which I just started using it, after letting it sit in my room untouched for a whole YEAR, basically). Finally I decided, “Wow, I seriously need to start practicing with that thing”. So, here it goes. Expect to see lots of trial-art around here, and trial-illustrations. I shall bombard ya’ll with it. Also, I am considering pouring myself into making fanart, because making fanart has never been such a big deal for me. Here is a list of the stuff I plan to draw, because I adore it so much. Plus, it would be very good practice.
