We’re already 2 months in, but I hope everyone is having a wonderful New Year so far. With a slow ending to 2017 for myself, December and much of January has been a major pain to get through. However, like many artists will tell you, you just have to find a way through. So here’s to a more eventful new year, and hopefully more completed artworks to share with you all. 🙂
If you’ve been following me on Twitter, you may have seen me ready to give up on this one more than once. I’ve had very few pieces that I would consider ‘failures’, to the extent that I consider scrapping them altogether; this one definitely came close. It’s natural to encounter problems with certain projects (personal or otherwise), but it doesn’t make it any less frustrating. In the end, I decided to use this drawing more as a field for experimenting with things I’ve wanted to try, rather than let the piece go to total waste.
Moving on to painting, I decided to extend the ‘experimenting’ with a quick little piece to start off the year. Not as dark as I usually like to go, but since it was more of a sketch I didn’t mind all that much.
