Mangix - Thanks man, I'm working on producing fuller images with more than just the outline. It's a terrible habit of mine to not think of the image in three dimensions. I think it comes from watching too many cartoons
OPK - I currently only draw with a mechanical pencil (habit from always drawing manga way back in the day), but I was watching a video on drawing with the Loomis style and really loved the way the artist used his different pencils for various things so I'm hoping to pick up some new pencils to work with soon.
So today is the first day of Mars Story, which I will be updating every day throughout April.
Mars Story is a project intended to open me up to new things as an artist. It is in no means an attempt to become masterful in any one area, but rather a tour of the various things that might be called upon me as an artist to create: characters, environments, action scenes, emotions, etc. Every day I will draw a new scene, progressing the story as I do so. These scenes aren't meant to be great works of art, but rather a sample (for myself) of what it's like to work on more than just static figures.
The goal of Mars Story: To broaden my horizons as an artist and open myself up to new processes, mediums, and subject matter.
I fully intend to continue my studies outside of Mars Story, so expect to still see plenty of figures and the like. Any updates pertaining to Mars Story will be in italic Georgia font for your convenience
"A crystal hurdles through space towards Mars."
