Happy new year guys! Haven’t posted in a while, but as always I have EXCUSES!
This year is a great new start for me, I’m in a new country on a new continent, starting a new life!
Since I moved in October, my Inktober challenge was a huge fail. I did a few more drawings I haven’t posted here yet, maybe I will one day though. Even if Inktober did not work out for me, I liked the challenge of having to create drawings regularly. Once a day can be really difficult though, so I went on the search for a new challenge that would be less demanding but still interesting and I found the 52-week Illustration Challenge.
What is the 52-week Illustration Challenge? It is a Facebook group with illustrators and people who just like to draw, where a new theme is imposed each week.
The theme for the first week was Fancy dress. So I drew a Versailles style dress… what’s more fancy than that?
I want to work on more traditional media this year. I have always worked with my old Wacom Intuos tablet, but lately I get really impatient with it. Maybe because I get more and more interested in linework, which is really annoying to do with a tablet. I guess a Cintiq would make this job easier, but I don’t have that kind of money right now and I’m no professional, so I guess I need to stop obsessing about it.
