Came up short of my goal of Quad 100s but that is an absurd thing to aim for in the first place. Onward!

I managed to finally do 100 faces along with the 100 hands, 100 feet, 100 figures routine. Let's see if I can keep it up! Onward!

I just got through streaming for about 8 hours and strangely the wrist/forearm of my non-dominant hand is strained and a bit painful. That's my signal to call it a night. Onward!

My buddy Darkboss has been hosting me in his multi-streams for a couple of weeks while I've been trying to get my finances back in order. I did a bunch of sketches of his horned mascot. I've always loved that design! Onward...

I have been feeling unwell as of late. I have been drawing mostly on paper but in general I have been feeling an overwhelming feeling of static in my brain, for lack of a better way to put it. I feel like I have been in prison. It's been almost 4 years. I'm so burnt out, but, I will continue. Onward...

Was talking about Fighting Games with Penbee today. I like fighting games a lot, but I'm not great at them! Onward...

InDesign Scripting gives me a headache but I am doing my best to wrap my head around it. Onward...

My work chair suddenly split in half on me! Guess I gotta stand until I can replace it.

Spent today working on a test drawing in the back of a fancy little sketchbook I got for someone special for their birthday. Whenever I start a new sketchbook, I immediately go to the back page and make a drawing of my mascot Apparition and the text "Be Smart, Test New Tools First" to get myself to be less self conscious and to accept my mistakes. I dont usually like to take photos of traditional work I do since it's a pain to rig up, but since I drew the test page live for someone special to view on skype, everything's set to take a quick pic.

I tried to sit down and finally learn the basics of modeling in Blender to help deal with my burnout, and I did a reasonable job of it. I built this model of Apparition today and intend to build more models for reference and to dust off my old modeling knowledge from back in like 2008 or so when I was first using Maya. I also finally got my little Huion tablet delivered-- it is... strange. I haven't used a pen tablet like this since I was a little boy. It is taking some getting used to, but I will be needing this for when my main computer acts up. At least until I can replace my Surface with commission work or something.

I didnt get much done today. Was navigator for my dad and the GPS led us on a wacky adventure through the mountains in the King of Prussia area. By wacky and adventure I mean infuriating and waste of time. We were not pleased when the GPS led us to a highway that was, yes, technically located behind the Costco, but completely inaccessible without multiple 10 and 20 mile rigamarole, This was the least productive training day and I'm quite miffed about it. Ah well, I tweaked this turnaround I'm doing to make a model with at least. Onward...

Tired. Kizuna Ai is delightful. Onward...

Trying to figure out how to construct Apparition in 3D. Need to make refs of all my characters, and hopefully 3D models! Onward...

The bulk of today's work was done traditionally, live on stream. Since I haven't got any commissions, I've been working on more assets for stream campaigns, including my Traditional Commission Stream, complete with Logo and layout. I still need to do some iteration on it, but eventually I'll make a fully complete version with marker and ink! Onward...

My internship ended today. I am seeking work now, and may have it secured through a friend. I hope so!

I am too tired to do anything super substantial today. Next time.

Onward...

Tried to stream but there wasn't much interest today. Everyone seems to be moving to mastodon for some reason, so I hunkered down and made one -- https://mastodon.art/@blkmkt -- and Penbee made one too! https://mastodon.art/@penbee

Most of today's work was done traditionally, on screen. I have some screenshots that I shall post, but I have inked some of these by now (poorly at that). Onward...
