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!

I took my mom to the Philadelphia Flower show today. The arrangements were beautiful, and my mom had a great time! I will be transitioning away from daily posts in this streak tomorrow, possibly posting weekly instead. I'm also investigating some sort of automated process for posting or making daily journal entries with the work I get done. I'll figure something out. Onward...

Spent most of today asleep. Trying to recover from burnout. Onward...

I'm going to put a cap on my daily streaks in 5 days time. It's been a good run, but I'll be switching to a more project focused streak, probably a weekly one after that. Onward...

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

I've been away for a while, dealing with pretty severe burnout, then helping my dad with lumber. I'm still here. 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...

Submitting on Streak Club is still broken. Onward...

I'm feeling quite sick, and fell asleep at my desk a few times today. Onward...

Today was the funeral of a dear friend's grandfather. I knew him since I was a teenager. He lived a long, happy life, and for that I am glad. I caught up with some of my friends and spoke about our creative plans for the future. I remain determined to build my skills and use them to make things that will outlast me. Onward...

I worked on an art trade for most of the day, attempting to refine my rendering technique using Leonardo's new Flood Fill/Magic Wand tool. All Leonardo needs is layer grouping and I won't need any other apps to do illustration work. 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 ended up starting a little later than usual, so if I don't manage to get my 100 hands and 100 feet done, that's why. For now, I'm finishing off my 100 figures at the Lansdowne art space, using a live model. A big issue with my observation skills is that I end up focusing on figures in sections, thus distorting the entire view as I go, especially if I'm looking at someone who is standing upright or is taller than me. It's the effect of a bad panoramic shot, and the distortion is terrible. I need to work on my position and placement skills, hard.
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...

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...
