A new month, a refreshed initiative

Hey guys and girls, just here to update all o' y'all on what's been happening and what WILL be happening!

So recently on my lunch breaks at work, I've been concentrating on getting the drawing stage of my next large artwork finished, and I'm proud to say that one of the two beasties featuring in it has now been fully drawn! He was also the harder to draw of the two, so I'm hoping the second will take less time to get done :D I will be uploading the pencil of each monster individually.

The main point of this journal, though, is to refresh myself. As most of you have probably noticed, I've not spent very much time on deviantART over the last year or so. This is something that I want to rectify, and I decided that, because it's a new month in a few hours, that I'd start a fresh month with a fresh start on my artwork. 

One of my main downfalls when I get to sitting shown and drawing is that I focus way too much on trying to learn or just practice everything, and not actually finishing a full piece. My main goal from this month on is to get more finished drawings done, whether they're just small things or larger pieces of full-on artwork.

Despite this, I do also need to get more of the basics of art down to a tee. I want to concentrate mostly on human anatomy and lighting, and luckily I've found some good magazines on the human anatomy subject. However, what I will try to do is to practice parts when I've come to a point in a drawing that requires me to practice it, e.g. if I find that I can't draw necks very well, then I'll do some practice on drawing necks. Poses are something I need to practice too, come to think of it.

I also need to get to some life-drawing classes at some point, it's a little difficult for me to travel places at the moment, not having learnt to drive yet and generally not liking buses, but if there is a class nearby to where I work and is at a convenient time then I shall do my best to attend them!

That is the plan, and I will do my upmost to keep to it. As a guideline, I want to be uploading at least one new piece a week from now on for as long as possible. Bug me when I start falling behind! 

Thanks again to all of you who've stayed with me, even in this very inactive year :star:


On your forehead! HA!
