    >Acquire additional hats


    Okay, but seriously now. I actually did mean it when I said it would be impossible for me to post when I was out of town. What I did fail to do was to post in this thread in addition to ponythread that I would be out of town for the last week. I guess in my excitement I forget, or thought folks would make the connection. Either way, I am back until Friday, Scribble Month continues, and I am extremely pleased with my new head covering.

    Placeholder text. This one is done and ready, but due to thematic reasons and spoilers, it and 109 will be posted tomorrow in tandem. I was literally about to post it, but then I realized that it would reduce the fun for tomorrow's post, so hang tight, please!

    Look, it's there! It's there! :D

    That sounds like a copout, designed to buy you more time. Shame on you.

    Pshhhhh a copout? No such thing! :D Honest!

    In fact actually I did show it to Amish yesterday, so he can totes vouch for me if you really want it/feel like bothering Amish, an action I am always a fan of.

    Day 110 - Two < Three
    Spoiler
    Show


    So I just got to the robot portion of Mass Effect 2, and I'm about to fall to pieces in love with it. For the sake of spoilers, I will end there, and instead say that this ten minute sketch did not come out too badly!

    Now I'll be smart and remember to say this before I go: I am going away again. Depending on how some scheduling will work out, I will either be able to post again on Saturday night or Sunday early afternoon, but if that doesn't work out, I will be unable to art until next Saturday, whereupon I will be back for good! I will have computer access all next week, but only a dinky work laptop on a business trip, no photoshop no tablet. If I can find the time to sketch it up old school with pencil and paper I won't be able to upload it until I get back anyway, that's just how the work lappy is. Won't preclude me from drawing at all, or at least shouldn't, just know that this is work-related absence, and not loafing. We all know that loafing brings about many much hat grievances ;)

    That said, I'll still have internet, so I can talk and pm, if there's discussion or advice to be had. In fact I'd probably love that, seeing as this is a week long business trip I'm starting down ^^;;

    Spoiler
    Show

    Here are the actual recognizable sketches I managed to do last week in Denver. I had a lot of "fill in the paper with scribble", but since I wasn't actually trying for a Jackson Pollock original I'm not going to waste anyone's time. It's weird, this was the first time I'd opened my physical sketchbook in months. Using an actual pencil felt... weird? I kept trying to vector tool to move stuff around the page...

    Day 112 - The Fun Will Never End
    Spoiler
    Show

    So I'm ashamed to say that I have only just discovered Adventure Time, but that's okay, I watched the entire series last week on my downtime. I'm good now. I feel like I'm going to be seeing a lot of AT, HS, and MLP stuff in the near future, these scribbles aren't giving them the proper release they deserve.

    Sweet deal, glad to be back! Hi everybody.

    March is over, but SKETCH MONTH has a few days left, for the sake of my one last trip this week. My word, dispite all the fun and excitement and rush of this past month, I'm looking forward to being able to keep a schedule for something longer than a week. Next monday will be met with open arms.

    Day 117 - hurr durr
    Spoiler
    Show


    *fanfare* Thus marks the end of Sketch month! My month-and-then-some ordeal of travel and crunch time has finally drawn to a close, and now I can actually focus on drawing again! It's been too long, guys.

    Tonight's drawing is me trying to get the kinks out of my brain, but also some much needed practice at this sort of thing. As a bonus, while I was at PAX this past weekend, I was able to attend the Make-a-Strip panel with Gabe and Tycho, and got the pleasure of watching Gabe's process up on the jumbotron. It was a great experience! And I managed to learn a few things from it as well, even though the typical PA style is super cartoony, and I figure I should work on realism first.

    It's good to be back, all!

    Day 118 - Portrait Vitrolic
    Spoiler
    Show


    I'm really feeling the portrait in three-quarters view at the moment. Let's see how long I can make this go! Practice makes better, but drawing the same thing over and over gets old fast, so I think I'm going to try a few days in the row of drawing heads, but of different people. Let's see if I can crank up some improvements in a week. Challenge accepted?

    Oh, tonight's drawing features Karkat Vantas of Homestuck fame. My friend just hit Act 5 tonight, and 4/13 is tomorrow, so this felt appropriate.

    Well, for one, there are two giant horns sticking out of his head...

    (Nothing especially off here, just overall odd. Lack of a chin line and ear placement might play into it, though. Shoulders could also stand to be wider, or at least evenly sized.)

    Well, the horns are supposed to be there, no worries on that. They DO make it difficult to figure out where the ears are supposed to go. The image we're going off of doesn't show them normally, but I am making the crass assumption that he in fact has ears. The horns just felt like they were in the way...

    The chin line... hmm... I can totally see what you mean. I was going for a "weak" chin, but there's obviously more to it than what I did there...

    Weak shoulders too, they definitely need work all the same.

    Those are good catches, I'm actually pretty glad that is what you picked on, it's calmed my mind a bit on the nitty gritty that i was worrying about. Thanks!

    So, as it turns out, I literally forgot to post on Thursday night. Like I spent an hour working, saved a sketch, then went to bed. Then, I realized the error or my ways, and spent three days making inexcusably bad Karkat sketches. For some reason, I have discovered, it is extremely difficult for me to draw a convincing Karkat. He is my kryptonite. For the sake of everyone, I'm skipping straight to day 126, and posting my final drawing of him for now, the other ones are physically painful for me to look at, the ones I didn't erase out of what was most likely disgust.

    Now that I've finished up all the boytrolls, now we're on to the fairer half.

    Also, I have realized that I've spent my entire life drawing dudes, and don't really know what I'm doing here. Yes, the "basic humanoid" rules apply well, but the feminine qualifier is... not entirely grasped.

    (At least I drew the blind one first, so she can't tell what a horrible job I'm doing.)

    Okay, so it's the next day and I don't hate yesterday's drawing. Not really thrilled with it, but that's at least something. The next five days are going to be... rough, I think.

    It does occurr to me that I've accumulated a reading backlog of some other (read: all) drawthreads, so I might go take care of that problem, and check in on everyone else's progress
