Lunchtime Sketch- Two, with noodles.

Line work- Ball point pen on paper. Colors Photoshop

50 minutes. I had to get this one done in pieces and in a hurry. Today was a busy day. The drawing is a doodle I made in a sketchbook in between doing other things. As a result it's not quite up to the standards of my previous sketches. I'll do better tomorrow!

Daily Sketching

These daily sketches have been a really great thing. I know they're not always the best, but they've kept my momentum up and helped me learn new things. I give myself up to an hour and a half to finish them although I try to keep it down to an hour or less. It helps keep me from over thinking things and get to the essence of what I want to communicate. As an added bonus (and a counterintuitive one) it's actually sped up my regular work.

If you're an artist of any sort- writing, music, painting, whatever- I recommend challenging yourself in this way. Use your lunch break to try to produce a complete piece. The results may surprise you.

New Art Tumblr

Inspired by it being a new year and all I've decided to finally dust off an old, unused Tumblr account and start a sketch blog. It'll be updated fairly regularly with sketches, layouts, doodles, notes, and other odds and ends that people don't generally get to see. Keep in mind there's a bit of NSFW content there so if nipples offend you the stick with what I share here where the content is sanitized.

 In the past I've spent most of my social media time on Facebook. I intend to change that this year by focusing more on this blog and the art Tumblr. If you're already following me on Facebook or Twitter and don't want to switch, fear not. Everything that I post here will hit Facebook and Twitter as well! The new Tumblr can be found here--
