I'll try that in a minute. I know what you mean. Guess it's time to try it out practically.

For now I did a 'study' of sorts using earlier thumbnails to see which method works for me. Verdict: Thicker brushes are better. Guidelines are life savers.



But now I'm surprisingly almost ready to use GIMP or something for other works and just have paint when I want to cool off. Just like I used lined notebooks to give myself less stress and pressure. Hell, might even pick up pencils. But I'll see. No promises.



And yeah haha getting invested in your work can be a problem for real. Gotta shake that habit if you want to produce more. Or at least be a little loose if you can.

Thicker lines probably feel better because it's easier to make lines meet and get that crisp feeling. Using thinner lines is a lot harder which I realized when I reduced my inking brush size to about half.

That first one is really good. I can see how the sketch contributed to the final lineart and it really pays off to have that layer of rough first.

And great improvements from the original sketches. Good use of different poses too, considering the originals were all mostly standing neutrally.

great face on #437.

I find the biggest problem is becoming invested in your drawing halfway through when it's too late to fix all the problems that you drew while casually being uninvested. Partly my WIP processing helps as it's not the piece itself that makes me invested, it's the time from when I started, so after a few pieces I start to get serious, and the rest come out better. I suppose that's why one is meant to have a warm up of sorts.

and yes guidelines are indeed lifesavers. knowing what sort of guidelines you need, or how and where to draw them, now that's the art.

Mind is melting a bit at this. Doing the stuff simultaenously is a drag. Will deal with it though.

Geat work! Some of the designs can be their own thing in a story.

After you hit your quota. Take a breather then try to put the time in finishing something. A downside of the fast sketching drawing/numbers for a long time you might find yourself losing the ability to focus on one drawing and finishing it.
I guess thats why there is a 30sec 5-10 min 30min 1hour drawings/sketch. I mostly did the 30sec 5-10 min ones.

I think that might just be the most varied bunch of designs you've done!
some crazy ones in there but it all adds to the mix.
also, you drew on lined paper? is that just the powers of brightness/contrast hiding the lines? because that is serious hacking.

@Kenfox yep I'm totally on the 5 minute bandwagon there haha. Need to do longer stuff XD

@suuper You sometimes take the sketches and lineart/color them.  You also experiment with new styles, like the gray thing you did. So you are practicing your method/process/workflow.

Gotta level everything up haha.


Found a discarded dog magazine and decided to draw every dog in it. Got done in 2 days. I'm looking forward to being done with these regimens and going into the heavy reference stage. Lots of mags I have lying around I'll be able to get through.

Spoiler





You're right on drawing many on a page thing: I got a lot more done and it somehow felt a tick less exhausting.

@KeaneFox could be something to look into yeah

I think that's partly because the amount of detail we feel we need to put in is lower, as well as it's actually faster to draw smaller regardless what it is. For quite rough things it's a great idea to sketch smaller anyway so you don't put lots of detail into a really rough sketch.
also fineliner vs ballpoint can also affect fatigue as one tends to sketch guidelines more with ballpoint, but go straight in with fineliner.

#835 stands out as pretty unique and #837-845 were much higher quality than the rest, like really neat.
and well done, you're nearly at the end point!!!!

dogs are also pretty good. you beat me to it for drawing animals haha
When learning a new thing, like an animal, it might be good to try and draw guidelines to break down the body shape. it might help when trying to draw from memory later. your scribbly line style works wonders for giving them fur though.
