Good weekend, got to gaming finally, and was enormously flattered that they seemed to be happy to have me back. It rather startles me; I'm a lousy, undependable friend and I know it. I didn't have my character sheet (I have no idea where it is...), and there was more discussion about EverQuest than Seventh Sea, but I loved being able to curl up on the couch and draw and draw and draw and draw and interact a little. Finished a drawing for the Project and started two others that are in maybe-will-be-finished mode. Also went back and fiddled with some old work.
I've decided that my sketchbooks are not as chronological as I think. It's a complete work in progress... I go back and tweak and fiddle and change everything in the book until I get a new sketchbook. The sketchbooks themselves are chronological, and you can see improvement if you flip through more than one at a time, but there is no skimming through a stand-alone book and seeing progress, because I cannot leave a piece alone until it's been taken away from me.
I'm trying to train myself to color while working in black and white, always considering, 'If I were working on a tablet, what color would I make this? What kind of brush would I want to use? What would I put on a different layer? Where would I put the lens flare?" (Don't worry, the last one's just a joke!!!) I'm hoping that just thinking about the process is exercising the correct areas of the brain. Carrying pencils or paint around is kind of a hassle...
Picked up more bristol from my parents house... I'm such the optimist. :P
The portfolio/scrapbooks that I got from Jennie are amazing, and I don't know how I got along without them. It's so nice having a safe place to stick various loose pieces, even big ones! I shudder to think about my haphazardous throw-it-in-a-random-pile-and-hope-it-do
Drove to Delta on Saturday with Jake to drop the snow-blower off for repairs. Fun little side-trip. Great buffalo burger. Didn't feel guilty about not working. Hah! Take that, brain!
Have a zillion stories I want to work on.
Tonight, EMG. There is football on tonight, so I'll go to mom and dads and finish contracts. That's my goal. FINISH CONTRACTS. *mutters*
