Today I worked on getting some spot blacks on yesterday's illustration. The polyester film I inked this on doesn't agree with my Copic markers, so I'll be doing this inking again on a different medium. I also managed to get my face cam working for working both digitally and traditionally. Onward!

Today I finally got to attend a figure drawing session at the Lansdowne Art Space. I intend to go every week, Mondays from 7 - 10 PM EST. If the pattern continues like today, we do 20 poses, so that leaves me to get 80 done before I attend.

I also streamed myself working on one of those Monster designs from my old failed project. I made the mistake of inking on Dura-Lar, which is great for ink but does not seem to work with copic markers... Ah well! I'll just do another pass of it on something more accepting of my tools. Onward!

Still recovering from sickness. Worked on monster art on stream for a bit, not very successfully, however. 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...

Spent today working on a test drawing in the back of a fancy little sketchbook I got for someone special for their birthday. Whenever I start a new sketchbook, I immediately go to the back page and make a drawing of my mascot Apparition and the text "Be Smart, Test New Tools First" to get myself to be less self conscious and to accept my mistakes. I dont usually like to take photos of traditional work I do since it's a pain to rig up, but since I drew the test page live for someone special to view on skype, everything's set to take a quick pic. Onward...

Testing the Markdown formatting
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...

The bulk of today's work was done traditionally, live on stream. Since I haven't got any commissions, I've been working on more assets for stream campaigns, including my Traditional Commission Stream, complete with Logo and layout. I still need to do some iteration on it, but eventually I'll make a fully complete version with marker and ink! Onward...

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

Streamed more live drawing on paper. I usually don't bother photographing the work I do on paper because it's a pain to get my webcam set up for it, but since I was already streaming my paper work I had everything set.
