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!

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...

I kept the figures at 20 so I could do 100 of everything else today. An extended blackout prevented me from doing 100 of everything up front. Onward...

I watched the DBS Broly movie with that special someone today! I like Broly-Is-The-Hulk Broly quite a bit, and I like how Cheelai and by extension the gaze of the movie treats Broly as a sex object as much as it does Cheelai. It's a nice breath of fresh air! Onward...

I lost most of today, ended up needing to sleep a bunch. Guess that's what I get for overdoing it so many days. I just want to get better at drawing is all! Onward...

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.
Onward...

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. Onward...

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...
