I need to clear out some of the space in my Cloud Storage so I’ve been trying to see what files I actually need and what could be removed. I’m beginning to think this is a bigger task than I realized. I don’t want to delete everything. I have looked at a lot of my old artwork. Most of it is based on video games I used to play in the early 2000s.
Let’s be honest. I picked some of my “best” pieces to put up here. And I can’t help but feel like my artwork style was terrible back in the day. My portions are off. I don’t think my anatomy studies were really that good back then. I borrowed heavily from anime style and even though copying is a form of learning, I most definitely didn’t do it in the best way possible.
I used to mostly draw by hand with pencil and paper then scan or snap a photograph of the drawing. Then I would color it in Photoshop. I didn’t draw directly in Photoshop. I’ve learned that most of the Wacoms are very hard for me to use. I can draw directly onto a screen like a tablet, but any Wacoms that work in that manner were too expensive for me. And still are pretty far out of my price range right now.
23.8-inch is my dream one, but realistically, I’ll probably get the 15.6-inch screen.
I know this has been a long ramble, but I suppose this all really fits into my positive self-talk goal for the month. Sometimes you don’t see the progress you’ve made until you take a moment to look at what you’ve done more recently. I’d like to apply this more often in my life now. Not just with my artwork.
I’m starting to feel a difference in my karate/martial arts as well. I’m not to the point that I’d ideally like, but at least I’ve improved from where I first started. Anywho, thank you so much for reading my post today. I’ll see you tomorrow!
