BACK IN THE SADDLE

Folks, there is no explanation for what happened. I could tell you something like my dog died, or I had gotten laid, but I'd be selling myself short another pile of excuses and lies. So here's the truth: I gave up. I had something that was going great for me, and in true Cyrax fashion, I overcomplicated the procedure, got daunted, and wiped.

To get back into the game, I whipped the following drawings within a 2 hour period working straight to finished concept. No colors, no fancy linework, no backgrounds, just pure art. 

For your viewing pleasure, I've created concepts characters from a new pathfinder game I'm part of. 

Stay tuned!

Lapse

What happened??? You were on a roll!!!

Those are the thoughts I can hear in my head in what's become a +2 week lasp of my art. To be truthful, the daily art challenges burned me out. What seemed like a fantastic way to bust out quality concepts daily turned out to become a chore for me, and...well, I pulled a typically CY maneuver and stopped making.

Don't get me wrong, I do play on getting back to the challenges, they're fun exercises, I'll just have to work better on being faster and more accurate in my depictions.

Needless to say, I've got more stuff on the horizon.

Stay tuned!

CHALLENGES #30 and #31

SUPER DOUBLE POST TIME!

Welp, I've been super later for the last few days. Being that I'm 3 assignments behind, it's no surprise that I'm slowly snowballing to being behind for like...forever. I must repeat that the purpose of this project was to kick me out of the cy-slow-mo method, but I'm feeling that all of my pieces are rushed..and shitty looking.

Maybe, its the fact that I need to up my art. I remember back in school during model drawing sessions, the teachers wanted us to commit faster and finish up a pose before the model would adjust - this could be a similiar lesson. It's no hidden truth that I won't have all the time in the world, but I can't help but feeling:

Am I doing the right thing?

One thing for certain is that I've a support group: a network of close friends and confidants whom I look up to and ask advice regarding my craft. For that, I thank you my friends, you know not the impact you have on my work.

If my past teachers are reading this, you've seen me grow, you've seen me fail. What I'm presenting is my latest opus. 

I am a work in progress.
