    Periodic Musings

    When I do something that's long and it becomes a chore I often lose the will to carry on with it. Even if I abandon the piece itself, going back to my old path is difficult.

    Doing something fast and dirty, just for the sake of doing it, works to bring me back on course.

    I used to really like just working with pen and paper. Problem is, most of my stuff comes out with the characters having no real pose or interaction and just standing there aimlessly like morons.

    I guess going to loomis and seeing how poses are done is something I can do. The problem is thinking of the pose, or more to the point about the character having a pose, in the first place.

    How do I go about this, when I work on the fly with just the paper and a pen and me? How do I have a good idea for something that the character will do?

    Were not attained by sudden flight,
    For they, while they companions slept,
    Were toiling upwards in the night"

    I think I'd work in pencil if I was trying something new. So it makes it easier to correct mistakes and when your'e doing poses you're not afraid of putting those quick gestural lines down with pencil. Doing gesture drawings is what I would recommend.

    too fatigued to continue this right now...
    or probably ever.

    feels nice to be at ease again,
    and to actually feel like drawing.
