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.

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...

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

I did some figures today but it was fewer than 20. Did 50 hands and feet on paper. Been dealing with struggles over the past week or so if I am honest. Working through them. Sometimes I get worried I am not working hard or fast enough. I know intellectually that this is false, and that I have been diligent and am seeing opportunities present themselves, but sometimes emotionally I struggle.

I did a lot of things today, including finally nailing down a preliminary sketch for my 9 major OCs! Onward!
