Well it took nearly a whole year instead of 2 months as planned, but in my defence I was doing fine until Corona hit and my regimes went out of whack.

I took my previously sketched hand poses and inked them all up.
512 hands.

Spoiler












Generally I think I have improved with my ability to draw hands but it doesn't really show, given that the last half of those hands were drawn 9 months after the first half. But I think I'm more confident drawing them, so that's something.

Moving forward I will regularly (like once a month) be doing a set of 100 inked hands, it's a good warmup regime and good grinding practice. I'm using a bit of a prompt for each row just to keep my brain whirring, like "open palm", or "half closed fist". I might also put badly drawn hands back in as WIPs to give them another shot at drawing them correctly.

Also just the latest page of 100 poses and 50 figure cleanup. I've done quite a few of these pages lately, it's been working well as a warmup.
Surprisingly it takes about 30 seconds for a pose concept and 45 seconds for a cleaned figure, but the quality difference between them is quite large. I think partly this is because I save time on the cleanup phase having an idea already there, so I spend the whole time on the figure itself, whereas on coming up with the pose idea, I spend more time thinking and pausing.

Working on lots of stuff. See my (soon to be posted) main art thread for the whole story.

First of all, I've completed the first stage of my new figure regime: 1000 pose concepts. I'll be adding to this number regularly but 1000 was the main goal.

You can see the quality is very rough, but still clearly and distinctly represents a pose concept.
I wasn't rushing so it took 4 months. Timewise it only took about 6 hours.
Each row is a different random theme.
I tried a couple of styles but eventually settled on something that's quick and clear.

Spoiler




















I've started a new regime, 1000 high level traced manga pages. It's a long term project due to the fact that it's taking like 45 minutes for each page. But I think it's really helping me to bridge the gap between my current skill and my target skill.
It's really training my inking skills above anything else I think, but it's also a good warmup because I don't need to think about anything because it's a trace.
I'm tracing my favourite style mangas, I've picked a bunch of random pages from about 20 favourite series.
I'm hoping it also trains my focus muscles for working on long term projects.
I'm at 22/1000 so far.
I'm happy with the quality so far but I'm aiming to get more accurate and also faster.
I'm averaging 38 minutes each so far, but I've not had too many "difficult" pages so far.

Spoiler












































Also, I've started a new 1000 hands regime. I'm breaking it into 2 parts like my figure regime, first the concept on its own, and then a finishing project.
I'm using prompts to try and force myself to try out lots of different poses and not sit in my comfort zone too much.

100/1000 so far.

Spoiler


I'm pushing my core stability because I need to be able to quickly draw lots of poses and hands in my manga project, as well as ink at a reasonable pace to get the regular output we're aiming for.

onwards and upwards :P

First set of inked hands
50/1000
I'm doing a fixing layer in between the concept (previous post) and the final inked. So far it's very 50/50 on quality. If you look at them zoomed out they are quite stable but zooming in, the fingers dont quite have that detail that I'd like. But for a first set at this level of detail I'm basically quite happy. If the hands in my manga came out just as good I'd be delighted :P



Also more resolved figures. 550/1000. It doesnt feel like I've really put much effort into it so to see the count at past the halfway point is a bit bizarre. Just goes to show little and often gets it done :P
Like a few of my projects now, I'm moving into a more definite solid line style, which is faster but also helps me to be more decisive with my lines and get away from the chicken scratching sketch style that I'm so fond of.



Traced manga pages.
30/1000
I really should be doing slightly more of these because it's really helping with improving my hand/eye coordination to the next level, as well as being relaxing as it's just tracing ahaha
