Character Xuanzang: Final

Doing this I feel that I have learned a lot within the past week. Hopefully in the weeks to come I will make a bigger improvement. I can't wait to move on the the next characters! Although I am not sure how I feel about the background, but that is easy enough to remove later.

Next Plan!

So my next plan for my dailies (which is starting Sunday) is to work on character design. Since it would probably be near impossible to do one sheet per day and because these daily drawings are suppose keep me going in thinking and keeping from being rusty, I will split up what I am going to do.

Sunday-Monday: research and sketches
Tuesday-Wednesday: page composition/ layout
Thursday: Final Setup
Friday: Ink
Saturday: Color

Hopefully I can keep to this schedule, but I will probably be going longer on some things and perhaps other things will not take as long.

I am also hoping that some of you will give me ideas for characters to make! I'm going to be writing some ideas down and put them in a small box, and it would be quite nice if you all could give me suggestions. Mostly to test how far from my comfort zone I can stray from.

This week I'm going to be incredibly busy. So instead of just skipping my daily drawing I am going to just do these digitally since I can do them a lot faster than traditionally. For the week after I have a new idea in mind. I will describe it later but I will need everyone input also!

Watered down acrylics, and a wee bit of watercolor pencil.

Way to over worked! Maybe tomorrow I shall work with watercolors...?

Since I have so much watercolor paper and I don't feel like cutting up and gessoing my masonite I decided to go with watercolor pencil and watered down acrylics. I like combining the two, but this one is really over worked. I need someone to stop me when I do these I think.

I feel like this is a failed attempt getting back into acrylics. I really don't want to do this again tomorrow, but I also don't want to be limited as just a "digital painter".  So I will try to do these as often as I can. Maybe I will go back and forth especially when I am busy.
