I recall posting something in the beginning of my time here explaining that I suck at updating journals, blogs and similar modes of sharing. So this is all as it should be, this update-drought.
Right now a lot of my time goes into the comic and school. The downside with having a webcomic, I often find, is that when you're done with a page or taking a break from drawing it you don't really want to spend the down time drawing even more, just other stuff.
Not always of course, but I don't draw as much on the side as I used to, and when I do I wobble between more ambitious pictures that end up half finished or easy sketching that get's eraised when I'm done.
I don't feel really productive with this is the point I'm making. I'm not sure I'm developing either.
When I was younger (not that many years ago) I could fill page after page with quick sketches for hours, and I just don't do that anymore. I'm not sure if it's because I lost that habit when I started working digitally, or if I'm just in another artistic phase right now. I do keep telling myself to start bringing my sketch book with me at all times again, which is just good advice in general, because I still see and get ideas for things that I want to draw when I wander outside.
Right now I'm collecting "styles" so to speak, artists whose artwork inspires me and has a technique in it that I want to mimic and make my own, usually pretty basic stuff. I'll post the results here when I have something worth posting.
