Man, it has been ages since the last post.
Sometimes, shit happens like that.
Well, I have an excuse, and a bad one.
For some reason, I felt completely spent after my teaching gig, and did not feel any urge to touch pencil for month(s).
Sure I did my shitty little doodles every now and then, and I did immerse myself into the next StrangeLoop project, but beyond that, every time I would try to dedicate a few hours and do some half decent sketch or whatnot, I would fiddle a bit, spend a lot of time staring at what I did, noticing all of the mistakes then gently pressing "do not save" button and moving onto something completely irrelevant and time wasting.
I did discover some amazing and inspiring manga/manhwa Masterpieces ( both being something I have been avoiding all my life, for which I have no excuse) and I have thoroughly enjoyed and hopefully learned something about craftsmanship and working discipline from these heroes of fucking storytelling. For no particular reason, I will mention a few that (even though I approached reading them reluctantly) blew me away and made me feel miserable at the same time.
So here we go, in no particular order:
Sun Ken Rock
Feng Shen Ji
And many more, but these are the ones I remember off the top of my head.
Anyhow, lately, I have been managing to stay a little longer with my sketchy pieces, so here are few I managed to take any distance towards finishing (and decided to save).
From now on, I intend to try and do a bit of warm-up sketching every morning, before I get cranking on the daily work, and I intend to share more often, but I have made promises in the past that I did not honor.
So, here is a few sketches, and please do not judge too harshly, I feel like I am learning to draw all again, as if I forgot all I knew.
Cheers to all,
