So we're halfway through 2015 and it's a good point to see how much progress we've made on the art resolutions from the beginning of the year. Hopefully, you haven't forgotten about yours! My browser apparently thinks "yous" is not a typo o.O
Here's my progress on my new year's resolutions: More expressive paintings Further practice with digital painting
to improve technique and speed. -- I'm practicing! I don't know how much I'm improving, but I'm practicing! lol Character names
Finally decide on new names for my water and fire elementals. Progress: 1 of 2:
Fire = Fyrron Draw said water elemental
thesexything Draw at least 2 fanarts
Progress: 1. The Flash
2. WIP; skin layer Sketching exercises 2x a month
June Painting with backlighting
because I need it for this one piece I'm working on.
Done. + Buy DSLR camera
and practice with it. Photo - Improve Still Life composition
Don't know if I'm improving
, but I am
working on it. Take a good photo of the darn QOTS necklace!
I made it in 2013 and still don't have a good photo of it.
So I need to get working on this black dots. Thankfully, I think it's still manageable. The most difficult thing will probably be prying myself away from this creative slump I've fallen into since May, where I can't get motivated to do anything. I barely scraped by with the twice-monthly sketches for April and June. I bought some fiction books for fun, light reading, and hopefully that will put me in a better mood and I can actually get art stuff done.How are you guys doing with regard to your art resolutions? ELEMENTALS
On an unrelated note, I recently had a conversation with someone that made me realize that pretty much all of my active watchers came after 2013. This makes sense, since although I've been on DA for 10.5 years, most people probably disappeared during my long hiatus in the middle of all that; most of them don't even come to DA anymore. What this means is that even though I've been posting pics and snippets from my story/OCs for that long, many people probably have no idea what I'm talking about, because they missed the beginning. So, the question is, would people be interested in me posting a summary of my Elementals universe and a sort of who's-who? And if so, are there any specific things you'd like me to address?
