    365 Days of Art - 100+ days done!

    2011 A Year of Experimentation and Artistic Exploration

    Hey good people! I'm pushing myself to do something ridiculous. This year I'm gonna TRY to spend a little time everyday creating something. It's a commitment I already feel myself regretting, but I'm never gonna get better unless I put in some serious practice time.

    Though I have little experience with this art stuff, I've always been fascinated by it and eager to try my hand. I took a couple of dinky intro art classes in college and since then have always wanted to do more.

    ConceptArt.org has the best artists I've ever seen, and though I feel unworthy of being here, what better place to inspire me to push myself. This project might result in nothing more than hundreds of crappy 5 minute sketches, but I'm pushing on in the hope that something greater will emerge with time.

    Criticisms of all kinds are welcomed, I can't get better unless people tell me where I suck.

    002: Boy Portrait

    So here are the first images of the project! I was in Washington D.C. for the turn of the new year and had a great time checking out the sights.

    I'm a very impatient drawer, I'll need to force myself to slow down and take my time lest all my drawings become scribbles.

    003: Girl Portrait

    Excuse the strange scribbles, this was done on a random piece of scratch paper while waiting for my slow computer.

    006: Digital Lady Portrait

    This is my first serious attempt at digitally painting a portrait. I am quite surprised at how well it turned out. How in the world do you draw hair though? For now just lazy scribble hair.

    008: Old Man

    At long last I was able to obtain some actual sheets of toned gray paper. I’ve been wanting to try black and white charcoal on gray paper for a very long time.

    009: Deer Drawing

    This might be the dopiest looking deer I've ever seen. I really messed something up here, but I just can't figure out exactly what's wrong.

    Yeah mate! I'm doing the same 365 thing in my sketchbook! I tried last year and only got to like mid feb...sigh. I'm determined this year. If you ride me to get it done i'll ride you! If you miss a day, just dust yourself off and get back to it. So far your stuff is looking great! i need to be doing more realistic stuff like you.

    4,8,2 are the best so far i think. Keep at it and you'll be amazed by what a year does!
    J: Don't call my escorts hookers.
    B: Mom's still got it!
    J: I don't date whores!
    L: This objectification of women has to stop!
    M: It's just mom and whores...

    Nice man! Doing this daily thing is pretty intense for those of us who don't have a career doing this. I could feel myself regretting it before I even started! For extra motivation I'm posting all these drawings on Facebook also where all my friends have easy access to them. Their excitement and comments is good inspiration to keep going, but it also means there's no giving up now lest I die of shame and humiliation of my failure. There's no turning back now!
