“Life is sometimes hard. Things go wrong, in life and in love and in business and in friendship and in health and in all the other ways that life can go wrong. And when things get tough, this is what you should do.
“Make good art.”
I’m having a hard time getting motivated to work on things tonight, despite the fact that I have a lot of free time and even more ideas and ongoing projects with which to fill it. Now, close to midnight, after reading some art blogs and re-reading the speech above, I’m getting a little more active.
I managed to finish filling in the flat colours on yesterday’s Uhura drawing and started on the shading. Here’s a look at my progress so far:
I started by shortening her right forearm, which looked much too long to me when I saw it again this morning. I then put in all the flat colours and have now moved on shading, highlighting, and changing the colour of the lineart itself. I’ll shade this a bit more after I’ve had something to eat, and then there are a million other things I want to work on.
