Everything Ready at Hand

Another quick video and post today and this one is about having everything you need to be creative ready at hand.

We are all busy and the last thing we want taking up too much time is the search for the right materials you need to be creative. If there is anything that will kill your motivation or sudden strike of insight is having to clean and organize just to get started.

This is why it’s so important to have all your materials organized and ready to begin a project at a moments notice. You never know when inspiration will strike, so be ready for it!

I’ve started working on the background! I wish I had more time to work on Snape today but I’m super busy with other awesome projects and I may have lost some focus today.

Tomorrow I’ll bring it back into focus and hopefully get something working in the background before Christmas.

5 Minute Gestures

Today’s exercise from the The Natural Way to Draw book was supposed to be 15 one minute gestures but I like replacing that exercise with 5 minute gesture drawings. It’s a wonderful time to work on gesture and structure.

What went well, what was awesome! Celebrate It!

I got some art done and put a ton of effort into some online projects. Now it’s time to clean up my materials for tomorrow so everything is ready at hand.

What needs work? What did you learn?

Need a little more relaxation through the day so I’m not going 100% all the time.

How am I going to Optimize moving forward?

Tomorrow I’ll re-commit to oscillating through my day.
