Join us... Into the derp side.

Seriously stoked at those figures Mahlua. Don't see nearly enough stuff drawn from you anyways so all this at once is pretty special. Also hell yeah 1000 regimens. Best of luck. Remember: The best moments are when you don't even care about doing it anymore and just want to finish lel.

As for mechanical pencils I know logically what makes my lead snap but over time when I get in the zone it just happens. I'll dig through my drawer again and try a mechanical pencil one last time, but I'm still skeptical.

Actually I'm skeptical about pencils all across the board these days. Damn things are smudging everything for days.

Nice to see you drawing for sure though. Keep at it!

So I might not go the full 1,000 route just yet, but I will go for 100. It's a little bit more manageable and less intimidating, I think.

The shapes are definitely starting to come to me a little easier, but I don't think I'm quite ready to start doing these from imagination yet, so as I wrote on the paper, these are copied. I'm having fun reading through the magazine as I sketch the figures, lol.


today's sketches
figures done: 30/100

Oh man more people doing this 1000 sketches challenge, I don't know if I have the stamina to keep up with you guys. It's motivating though seeing all of you push through this trial, maybe I'll do a 100 sketches or something myself

I only managed to do my figures from my head because of the insane amount of copying that I had done previously. One time I tried before to draw figures from my mind and I couldn't get past a single page of like 7 poses.
So I'm sure later on it will become easier.
well 100 is still a good target. looking good so far!

@devola DO IT!

I'm thinking I might still wind up doing 1,000 figures, but it'll be sets of one hundred and they'll each be doing something different, like sitting, working out, playing guitar, walking, fighting, and other various things that inevitably an artist will need to draw people doing at some point. I look forward to ones where figures are interacting with objects and other figures. It seems like a challenge appropriate for my level.

Magazines are a goldmine for references. I actually reference heavily when I'm too tired to think up something new. It's why my hand drawings went so smoothly: I could truly in any situation just pick up a pen and paper and draw. It's important to reduce the activation energy required to start your regimen to be able to go at it so references and stuff are really recommended.

And 100 is cool. Do what works for you.

18 and 27 are my favourites

@devola you know you want to. Do eeet

My fav picks: 29 is quite dynamic. 19 and 22 look quite good also.

@Lego activation energy is the thing I'm working on at the moment. Splitting my work into progressive WIPs helps in that regard as I only have to move the piece forward one step.

@Mahlua 10 sets of 100 is a great idea as you can explore each theme really well. I just did random poses but often each page had poses with a similar theme like sitting or running or something. hopefully at the end you'll have some pieces that you want to finish properly.
