Submissions by BLK MKT tagged sketch

Spent today hanging with Penbee and preparing for tomorrow's interview. Wish me luck. Onward...

My interview is on Tuesday. I'm going to continue to sure up my knowledge in preparation. Also, I finally got 100 figures done again! It's been 60 days since I last managed this.
Onward!

Passed that ACE exam, just squeaked by but I passed! I'm so exhausted from all the studying that I think I need to just sleep. Onward...

I take my ACE exam for InDesign tomorrow. I've been studying hard for over half a year now, and tomorrow is do or die time! These tests cost a bunch so I gotta make this one count! Going to do some more studying when I get home. Onward...

I met with a recruiter today concerning a local position as a "Multimedia Developer". My skills meet the listed requirements but that's certainly a title I am unfamiliar with. My interview with the company is next week - I hope it goes well!

I ended up drinking some coffee to try to get some work done and not sleeping. I still have a little trouble drawing from imagination, but I'm certainly in a way better position than ever before. I will do more later, but for now I need to actually sleep. Onward...

I am exceptionally tired today. I barely managed to get 20 figures done. I must rest. Onward...

I was pretty exhausted today and did not accomplish much of consequence. Onward...

Took a trip to Atlanta, GA today to spend time with someone special. There was a guy going my way who was dressed in a football jersey and sweatpants along with a royal cape and studded crown. He shouted at the football game playing in an adjacent airport bar - my notes read: RUN IN THE BALL, so decrees the GRIDIRON KING. Tremble all ye who bespoil his lands with poor sporting strategy. Unfortunately, I think his team lost, and to the team from my neck of the woods from what I heard. Some heads will roll tonight, I suppose! Onward...

Been preparing for another round of job applications - went to visit a friend and ask for advice and ended up making major changes to my LinkedIn account as a result. Also working on new versions of the resume. I have a big trip tomorrow to Atlanta, so getting everything posted nice and early. I dont have a Surface anymore, so I'll have to draw tomorrow's art on paper like some sort of Cave Person. It may take me some time to get to a place where I can make a scan of what I do and post it. Onward...

Working with this Huion tablet has been very difficult for me, but I figure it will help me recalibrate my draftsmanship, kind of like a baseball player swinging six bats at once before using the one so they swing it six times as hard. In my case, by making it harder for me to draw figures from a contour, I'd be forced to think and work more gesturally as well. That, and I needed to be in a different section of my room to switch things up and fight this burnout some more. 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've been quite burnt out. I need to rest but for now... Onward...

Burnt out again. I've begun slipping into just doing contour drawing when doing figure drawings again, so I need to focus on construction and build a better mental model of the figure instead of relying on sheer rote memorization of groupings of lines. Onward...

Finally sat down and made a logo for my NSFW blog/twitter. My anatomy skill still isn't where I'd like it to be and I don't tend to have much in the way of ideas, but it can be a decent way to get work from time to time. Onward...

2018. Time to hit the job search again. Let's go onward...

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