I've set upon a challenge of doing a sketch everyday for 356 days /a year. I feel the need to find that energy and compulsion and discipline to carry on and through the tough bits and out the other side to results and rewards of having finished something worthwhile.
So here are the results so far. I actually haven't enjoyed it for the reason it feels scattered, in-cohesive and sloppy. I am learning already though. Especially that I feel uncomfortable posting images that I don't particularly like the look of, how I've painted it etc. This resonates especially as the work I do commercially doesn't have that attentiveness about it either, as the characters / stories are not mine and it's a style born from working with one company, so I see it as their style, not necessarily mine, so I'm not attached to it's output as much as with my own personal work. So this project is already uncomfortable. I will do the whole year, I am determined and also enjoy the project as an idea and as a discipline, so let's see how it pans out and how the content changes along the way, and see whether I can make some good work along the way.
It is only the very start, so maybe I should chill out and see what the rides brings and hope I can turn it around into something interesting. Please do check in again and even pop back in next week to see more, or follow me on my Instragram feed under cpedlerpics.
