So much for uploading on sunday! Due to various reasons I’ve only been able to put everything together today.
So, here it is:the first half of a big compilation of terrible scrappy doodling from the past few months that I still quite like. Click through for full size! These are all characters from my various comic-verses, and a healthy dose of random fairies as well. Because, well, I like designing fairies.
It feels incredibly weird to be throwing my art out into the public domain like this, but as I’ve finally started posting my writing, it was inevitable that my art escaped eventually! I hadn’t really drawn very much at all for many years, and even in my productive phases before that never bothered to, y’know try and learn anatomy or anything important, and goodness, but it doesn’t half show!
But around the start of 2011 I began consciously working to improve for the first time in my life. I was really frustrated with my lack of productivity and could never decide whether I wanted to write or draw and would always feel guilty when one lagged in favour of the other. So, as I work best when I set myself small goals and religiously stick to them, I established a rota. One day I have to do a sketch from life or from whatever useful nude pictures I can dredge up, and the next I have to do half a page of writing. It’s working incredibly well, because it means every day I’m producing at least something.
So while I’ve still got a very long way to go, my rate of improvement is highly encouraging.
Dragon age doodles coming soon, when I finish up a few half-done bits and pieces and get them scanned.
(I’ll probably have to split this image as I’m fairly sure it’s too big for tumblr to handle, but, hey, it’s worth a try)
