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

Lots of lost time today due to long blackouts, but I did get a little more than 70 or so hands done, and a commission! Onward...

I managed to finally finish those two character busts ordered during one of my streams a few days ago. I'm very relieved to have finished some commission work that I can actually show in my galleries, rather than things I have to hide or things I'm not allowed to show. I hope I can get some more orders tomorrow! Onward...

Been doing commission streams today. Turns out opting out of Overdraft Protection does nothing to protect your accounts from its cousin, the dreaded "Courtesy Pay". Needless to say, I'm taking commissions. Get yours at http://blkmkt.net/commission -- Onward...

Today's order was a commission from one of my usual clients. The goal for this year's streams is to have less content like this and more content like what I actually like to draw and make. That's going to require me to make a lot more content that means something to me - something I've put off while I've been training. Ah well, another day, another dollar! Onward...

I tabled my first convention this weekend!
It was... very poorly attended, sadly, and none of the vendors made any money, including myself. One of the other nice vendors commissioned me to draw their dog with copic colors and this is the result. What a cute pup! Onward...

I beat Mega Man 11. I wish all the earlier games were remade in this style with this level of detail, especially silly details about the Robot Masters like their manufacturer and other nonsense.
Also, I did a commission today, and trained some of my friends to be a spillover backup for me in case I am indisposed.
Onward!

You know, you can only have so many bikers come into your bar until it becomes a biker bar. I took a commission of one of my own characters today. I hope that doesn't end up being the only kind of work I end up attracting going forward. Onward...

Slow day today for commissions, but I knocked some of my commission queue out. Onward...

I somehow fell asleep while I was submitting this? Onward...

I streamed all day today. All of the stuff I drew is unfinished or utterly unpostable. Ha!

Today was Chinua Achebe's birthday! He would have been 87 years old today, and his works provided much needed inspiration and wisdom to my father. I narrowly missed the chance to meet my namesake before he died, but sadly I was sick on the day he came to my college.

Today was rather eventful on the commission front. I finished three sprites and one character design/full body commission, though I am unwilling to post that anywhere because it is material that is typically on my unpostables list.

I tried to get as many figure drawings done as I could today without missing my commissions. Onward...

I learned a new technique for approaching colored work in Leonardo today! In order to keep shading quick, I lay down my flats after making lines. I take my flats layer and duplicate it, adjusting the color to create my shadows. I then make a new layer under the shadow layer and make the shadow layer a clipping mask - then I can draw in my shadows where I want them. Leonardo doesn't have masking the same way as Clip or Photoshop, so this gets me the same result! Not only that, but I can stream Leonardo work even if I am using the transparent window function for inking!

I'm pretty hyped about it, as you can see.

I did a couple of commissions today on stream! I now realize my copic collection is woefully lacking in greens and greys. Onward...

Streamed for 11 hours today. Commissions and figure drawings. Onward!

I spent today doing Artist tile sized Bust commissions. I am lucky I managed to get my new camera system in place before my Surface broke. I will be running this commission drive until I am able to afford its replacement! Onward...

I recently reopened my old Oekaki board from ancient times! You guys should join it and draw with me and Penbee! I used to run an oekaki years ago, and I'd like to see if that's a thing anyone would be interested in using ever again! Otherwise, I worked on some pixel commissions very early in the morning today and ended up unable to stay awake in the middle of the day. I'll do better tomorrow!

Onward!

Pieces from an long overdue commission.

I've been trying to do this particular illustration for more than a year now. I have studied every day since this and finally got to completely redo it with my newer skills. I still have issues with legs and some with arms but I'm finally getting to a point where I can draw a body fairly reliably, even if it still takes me a while to get some poses down...
