Yeah they're not reliable in terms of resolution but Pinterest is good for quickly finding the references you need in one place. There's also a lot of 'hidden' communities you wouldn't expect. The thumbnailing and animation pinterest side are super inspiring for example.

And yeaup I've officially adopted a grid system! It's really nice knowing exactly how much will be done. Come to think of it I could use more gigantic grid like canvases to help me work on regimens more reliably. Heck I could make the photoshop psds in advance and dump them in a folder. So this is what factory-bulk work flows are like.

Nice. Two weeks to sort of solidify a habit on top of another huh? I#ll see if that applies for me.

And yeah in general its why I'm going to focus more on comics eventually. I tire of drawing (as cute/cool as they may be) yet another character posing in space doing nothing. I know the world of illustration has much more to offer on the higher level but I've always wanted to tell a story.

And oh yeah I did do the thumbnail thing haha.

Having a terrible existence right now. This just goes to prove that sketch survival and regimens are super effective. It's amazing not feeling like doing anything and just doing it anyway. If I can plug in more regimens across all areas of my art writing and personal life things will be quite nice methinks.

Day 12

Sitting in the galaxy train, Ford thought to himself he really needed to find a bounty, or he'd starve to death.
It was moments like these that he remembered why he still bothered looking for Valence.

The rumble of his gut reminded him that despite all he had lost and all that he had suffered, there were simpler, baser desires to think about.

He was a cowboy travelling the stars, a lone ranger looking for sweet vengeance.

He wondered if he'd be satisfied at what he found in the end.

Day 11

The Change

The Change came faster than anyone expected. Everyone waited with baited breath. They'd look for the morning paper, but everyone knew all media had been silenced: The new dictator alien from out of space had made sure of that.

Not only had he toppled all governments on the planet single handedly, he'd also forbidden all form of telecommunications and media.

Other than the military he decimated in seconds with his black blade, no casualties had been reported.

It was said that even the smallest rebellions were immediately quashed: Instantly the dictator teleported to any significant gatherings, disarmed them or locked them away then returned to The Eiffel Tower, a place he seemed to prefer to sit at.

And now, they waited for him to say something, to explain something.

But he was mute. He had a mouth that was stitched together. Although he was caucasian and had long black hair and wore what could be explained as gothic clothing, he only seemed intent on controlling the planet.

People photographed him, asked him questions (They'd long since stopped trying to attack him, an invisible shield bubble blocked all such attempts.)

And after a week of observing him sitting on the Eiffel Tower, the world went on as it did, without governments, without direction.

Bearocracy still survived, but anything military and to do with government was shut down immediately. The dictator did not kill indiscriminately, but he made it clear what he liked and did not like by instantly locking away those who seemed to attempt to reach for power.

Eventually, something happened.

The whole world noticed as four gigantic red giants appeared in Paris, and the dictator drew his sword and faced off against them.

He planted his sword next to him and raised his hands outstretched, He spoke in a booming voice that carried across the whole city. It is said that everyone who heard it heard it in their own language.

"This planet is subjucated! Leave it in peace! I, Asimov, speak for it!"

The red giants, glimmering formless things with white blazing eyes seemed to pause for a moment, and then one by one, they winked out of existence.

The dicator - the man named Asimov - picked up his sword and without announcement, vanished from view and the planet forever.

After his departure, they built a statue in his name. Thousands of millenia later, his legend still reigned.

Man these last couple of days you've really come into stride suuper. Looking quite polished there. Amazing stuff!

And thank goodness for GIMP autosaving.

Nisekoi hair shouldn't work but it totally does. Also your pattern sense is already good and it'll become even more legendary after the fact.

I can't stop admiring the shadings on her knees. Subtle and well done. I want to pet them

Day 10

Zebra Man


A man screamed, shielding himself from the large piece of rubble falling through the air. He was too frozen in fear to react. He was going to die.

the flash of a cape, a large impact - a huge crushing sound

and the rubble smashed into the concrete. more pieces fell down, destroying roofs, crushing cars. Others were most certainly injured or worse.

But the man was saved.

"Th-thank you!"

The hero responded with a quick nod and grin. He ran along the street,

"Get out of here! Everyone help who you can! Stay away from the building!"

Those who listened rallied themselves. The hero helped up those who were down and using the Hero App pinged positions where emergency services could come along. He didn't try to enter the skyscraper - it would be too dangerous, and he had to focus on evacuating the nearby facility.

The other heroes were helping too, fellow street-level heroes.

He risked wasting a second to look above. A shockwave exploded as the two of them clashed - Crawford and Skyglider. He hoped it would be solved.

"Hey Zebraman!"

Zebraman looked over at Piledriver, the beautiful long haired low-level telekinetic hero who always wore a construction outfit for some reason,  She levitated some rubble above a couple who were trying to get out of a car.

"Good job!"

Zebraman nodded, continued his work.

He appreciated the gesture.

Being a hero was tough work, sometimes pointless, but he did his job.

Synopsis: Zebra man was blessed by a shaman with the powers of a zebra! He has moderately better eye sight than most and is faster than the typical human! He wears stripes and is known in corners around the city, but not too much. People generally say, "He's a good hero. Does good work."

And that's enough for him

Completely utterly out of steam

Day 9

Summer for the Ugly Duckling

She decided she'd just accept that she was ugly, and work with that instead. There was no saving the fact that the left side of her face sagged like melted wax . There was no putting fat on her hips, there was no fixing the fact that one of her teeth was busted. She'd learnt to put on make up well enough to hide all of that, but she noticed one day with such freeing disgust how pathetic everyone else seemed with their smart phones and puckered lips, and to be honest she preferred not spending hours in depressed hazes fantasizing about life later. This life was hers and now, and if people had a problem with her she'd not whisper or look away dammit.

So she pepped herself up enough to go to the door, to open it, to face the day. Summer was in full swing. Everyone would be out and happy. Jogging, laughing, smiling.

What could she possibly do out there but ruin everyones' mood?

Wasn't it better to just stay inside and not be a bother? Society existed for a reason. Humans were communal creatures - she wasn't supporting the community, so it was best she stay inside.

She hovered at the door.

And thought.

And thought...

Man that's really really working for you. I like how you even managed to make the linework more subtle. That's beautiful as heck. For some reason I thought of a webtoon of some sort. I forgot the title though haha.

And rambling helps a lot in getting your thoughts out and documenting things for sure.

Day 44

Yeah it'll be a while before I reap any benefits but I really want to place characters in actual places. Might as well chip away at backgrounds.

Ah yes totally forgot to answer the pressure sensitivity bit Echo.

And hahaha here is the colour work that suuper did. Amazing!

I would love sketch ink colour collabs. Heck there is a board for that. Might as well post there and update it there.

There was also a Manga Raiders Battle Ground thing where people drew fight scenes. I'll do some digging for sure.

Wait you have sketch pages for different moods? Man

Btw Echo would it be OK if I posted what you put on aggie too? I still have the sketch you did haha

Jeez that's a mood if I ever saw one. Poor gal.

Sort of imagine it as a super artsy video 2d puzzle platformer where your character can't really do anything and you have to keep to as much light as possible to avoid them freaking out.
