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!

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

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...

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...

Today's work was truncated. I spent the majority of the morning asleep, since I spent most of the night last night preparing my computer, reformatting it and the like. The performance gains have been noticable, but I need to rest so I can take advantage of it. Onward...

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

It's going to take a lot of work before I can get this typeface anywhere that looks good. I'm not an expert at making fonts, but it has been a nice way to try to study letterforms. Even with the assistance of the puppet warp tool, I still have a lot of decisions to make with the design. I should probably just make a bunch of kerning pairs and see what works in the most contexts so I can make this typeface less awkward when it is done. Onward...

Still experimenting with these logos. Onward...

Did some work on the logos for my 9 main OCs today. Got reasonable progress on three of them, only 6 more to go!

More sketching from that OC meme. Anthem and Pok are my oldest OC, having been created as a pair. Anthem was called "Chi" back then, and was more like Apparition in terms of being kind of goofy and harmless. Pok possessed Chi's body every night and would try to get him to burn things and other mischief. Anthem and Pok were separated and Anthem was replaced with Apparition for a more fitting duo. Onward...

Watched a bunch of terrible movies with Penbee, including a straight up bizarre Aladdin adaptation. Worked on 3D models and other stuff. Onward...

Burnout. Tried sketching things for that OC meme thats been going around. Drew a few figure drawings, but fell way below my posting threshold of 10 figures, so I'm not even going to bother to include it with this post. Onward...

Been sick and tired. Quite a metaphor for 2017 as a whole. I still drew today, though. Onward...
