Practice Sketches Day 2
Category: Practice Sketches.

Music I listened to while drawing Scar Symmetry, The Invisible Empire album.
Goal To practice drawing silvery metal and see how it would work with big, patternlike reflexes. To test new colour pencils. To test various types of reflexes and textures on the sword. To practice darker skin shading. To relieve my mind of concepts it's been holding for quite a while now. 
Additional goals achieved I learned that while the new pencils create softer and richer gradients than Conte' pencils or Koh-I-Noor or Bambino pencils, they don't allow for dark shading. 
Technique Various techniques used. Shading with a graphite pencil. Stabilo fineliner and graphite pencil. Colouring with generic, China-made colour pencils and making linearts with Stabilo fineliners.
Story Just wanted to see what the Scooby Gang would look like if I exxaggerated each members' features. 
Next experiment I want to test how various pencil brands mix. I also want to practice drawing textures from reference material.
Time spent on this As the notes on the pic say - I started at 6.28 PM (18.28) and finished at 11.55 PM (23.55).
Practice Sketches Day 1
Category: Practice Sketches.

Music I listened to while drawing Gravitational Distortion "Void Between Worlds".
Goal To practice drawing bodies from memory. To practice new techniques. To practice mixing techniques, patterns, coloring styles, mediums. To practice things learned from digital tutorials with traditional media (lips). To design a dark-skinned Vanessa from King of Fighters. To draw despite the fear of ruining a picture. To push my limits. To see how much it'll take me to draw something. To see how much I'll last when drawing continuously. To practice drawing shiny fabric and folds.
Additional goals achieved Learned to use subtle crosshatching. Made a sheet look like people lying underneath. Found out how well brown and gold pencils go together. Found a different way to draw hair. Managed to get a step closer to draw like Serpieri.
Technique Various techniques used. Shading with a graphite pencil. Rough shading with Conte' colour pencils + black pencil shading. Smooth, one-directional Conte' pencil shading + subtle crosshatching. Red Conte' pencil, Stabilo fineliner and graphite pencil.
Story Not much of a story behind it. I drew what came to my mind. 
Next experiment The sheet makes perfect glowing hair when colours are inverted. I want to use it in a drawing. I also want to try even more thorough and smooth graphite pencil shading. Of course, I'll try mixing techniques, trying other poses, etc.
Time spent on this As the notes on the pic say - I started at 4.45 PM (16.45) and ended shortly after midnight.

"I am thy empire", spectrally whispers the Antipaladin as you approach him, what means in a language long dormant: "Please, tell me, how may I be of service?"

If you happen to seek the ageless counsel of an astrologer, the intuitive wisdom of a numerologist, or a soothing embrace for your spirit and mind, then you have come to the right place, and your pouch won't miss a gold piece, for I am the guardian seeking redemption by leading you through oceans of thorned labirynths until you find your way in life. Fear not, for I always leave paths to choose from instead of showing you the only way...

I am forever thyne.

Personal Quote: Reality is only for people without imagination
I did a little video where I tried to synch Disney's Frozen's Let it Go scene with the popular Get Jinxed song from League of Legends and tie it with its story.
I hope you'll like it.

I'm struggling to find time to get back into doing art, but I'm definitely going to do it. And I want to combine it with making videos.

Anyway, how have you been? I hope you're doing great.

Best wishes.

Hi. In case you wanna give it another look, I've finished editing chapter 1 part 1. It needed a lot of work (there weren't necessarily any typo's, but mostly slightly awkward expressions and descriptions that could have been more to the point), and I've also changed the name of Adane's ship.…

Your drawring skills are very good.

Thanks very much:)

As for the calibration problem I amped up the gamma and was able to see details in the upper right corner. I'll see how this setting will work out.

hey just letting you know i only have internet access from my phone until friday because of a defect I will thus not be able to make any edits This sucks. Regards

I see. Well, I hope you get it fixed soon. Perhaps you'll get to write more new material.
I finally got to edit my short story which was 27th among 50 short stories and could be higher, because I exceeded the character limit and had to cut lrge chunks of it and replace it with anti-climactic summaries, which didn't work well. It was also one where I still used lengthy sentences and too much "simultaneous" verbs, the ones with -ing (he ate while watching TV).

See you until then.

*Teanonator voice* "I'm back."

I did write some more pages for Sunder, actually. There's a fun part coming up. 

Eh, that's why I don't join contests. Having to work by pre-set guidelines is a useful writing exercise, I guess, and I know you can't organize a contest without them, but I think having total freedom produces the best (and most unique) work. Limitations make the submission feel less worthwhile and less representative imo, which kinda defeats the purpose on getting people to judge it. But that's just my opinion. I do remember taking part in tournaments on the ol' RPG boards where your characters had to fight and the outcome was decided by who was the better writer though. That was a lot of fun. Do you have the link (to the original story)?

Did they want you to write 'He ate. He also watched tv.' instead? If so, ignore those people! Eating while watching tv rocks! :p

The thing is it wouldn't be that easy to manage. Each one had the possibility to submit three works (not all did though) and each work could be 35000 characters long. People had to read through them all to rate them.
The main problem was that too much words were used up for explaining the sci-fi world/setting. It was also rich in dialogue I felt I needed to include to get the protagonists' unusual relationship across.

But this kind of place even despite it's flaws is something amazing. One can only imagine how it would be received without them.
I don't complain, because without the contest I would've probably never written it.

Yeah, the link's not a problem, but it's in Polish. I do hope to polish it in Polish and then translate it, because feedback between contests tends to be unreliable there. Plus, it grew to 30 pages, so unless I submit it in parts I don't see how someone will find the time to read through it. At least not in one sitting. If I get to translate it, I will post it here though.

More or less. They wanted me to do it with actions where I just knew they had to be done simultaneously. The problem is that in some contexts few words were equally suited to convey what I meant. For example I wanted an action to be performed while the protag started running, not when they ran.
