Today was the funeral of a dear friend's grandfather. I knew him since I was a teenager. He lived a long, happy life, and for that I am glad. I caught up with some of my friends and spoke about our creative plans for the future. I remain determined to build my skills and use them to make things that will outlast me. Onward...

More submissions by BLK MKT for Daily Art

Hello everyone! I've finally launched my Patreon! I'm gonna post tutorials, daily sketch work, scripts and other stuff that I do for everyone to enjoy! https://www.patreon.com/blkmkt
I've still been doing daily work, but a lot of it is NDA, so I've taken this time away from Streak Club to relax my previous requirement to do at least 20 figures daily to focus on other work. See you folks on Patreon and on stream!

Streak Club has been an immensely powerful arrow in my quiver for these last four years and change, helping me to become a more focused and diligent artist. I have not missed a day of study in the last 1500 days, and though we did not exchange comments very often, seeing everyone else working has been a joy and a privilege.
Though I am not leaving Streak Club, I am going to conclude my posting to this Daily Art Streak. I wanted to finish 100 figures one last time for everyone, but the whole point of this thing was to learn to treat myself more humanely!
I am going to be launching my Patreon in the near future. I'll share the scripts and other utilities I made to help make this run possible, and probably other things. I'm still figuring it out! https://www.patreon.com/blkmkt

Until next time, Onward, everyone!

I took my mom to the Philadelphia Flower show today. The arrangements were beautiful, and my mom had a great time! I will be transitioning away from daily posts in this streak tomorrow, possibly posting weekly instead. I'm also investigating some sort of automated process for posting or making daily journal entries with the work I get done. I'll figure something out. Onward...

Spent most of today asleep. Trying to recover from burnout. Onward...

I'm going to put a cap on my daily streaks in 5 days time. It's been a good run, but I'll be switching to a more project focused streak, probably a weekly one after that. Onward...

Spent most of today following up on business leads, working on props for the illustration I'm working on of my OCs. Onward...

I've been away for a while, dealing with pretty severe burnout, then helping my dad with lumber. I'm still here. Onward...

Still recovering from pretty severe burnout, but I think this work has been slowly paying off! I've never been able to draw all 9 of my OCs in a way that didn't immediately fill me with embarrassment. We'll see how it goes as I move forward! Onward...

Submitting on Streak Club is still broken. Onward...

I'm feeling quite sick, and fell asleep at my desk a few times today. Onward...

I worked on an art trade for most of the day, attempting to refine my rendering technique using Leonardo's new Flood Fill/Magic Wand tool. All Leonardo needs is layer grouping and I won't need any other apps to do illustration work. Onward...

My buddy Jim commissioned me today! Also, it snowed a bunch. Onward...
