Sketchy - P... Pear? by ManFox

Third and last sketch I whipped up for a little RP event on SecondLife, an Art Festival. I decided to whip up a small number of "paintings" of fruit with limbs. This is a, uh...

...Oh no.


This was also a small exercise in trying to get back into a drawing groove. I whipped out three small sketches over 2 days, which is something I haven't been able to do in a while. So I'm kinda happy about that!

((Also, there's no uncensored version of this. This is the full thing.))

Second one of three sketches I did for a little RP event on SecondLife, an Art Festival. I decided to whip up a small number of "paintings" of fruit with limbs. This is a Buff Orange.

Journal History

I've drawn more in the past two months than I have in the half year before that. I've finished more of my commissions in 3 months than I have in all of last year.

Granted, we're only talking about a tiny handful of pictures, but knowing this makes me feel a bit better. Slowly, but steadily, I find myself getting back into a more or less steady art groove. I've made it my goal to draw at least for one hour every day from now on. Sketch, do lineart, work on commissions, just anything art-related, one hour a day at least. It's not much. It's not nearly anywhere as much as I hope to some day, but I've overloaded myself on this once, I don't plan to do it again until I know I can handle it.

So yeah, that's a thing. I feel like a retarded child proud of itself for not fucking something up to apocalyptic proportions for once. That's cool.


So what's next?

I've just slightly restructured my gallery (Meaning I added 2 folders and renamed one), went through some old artwork to check over where I improved, what needed work and such, next on I'll try to finish #4/6 of Redswift's commissions, and on the side I'll try to sketcharooni, get some art time pumped up. I've still got a LOT of work to take care of before I can finally draw for myself again without feeling guilty, but slowly and steadily, the pile gets smaller. All that's left now are 2 1/2 Redswift Commissions and some single parts of an SL skin. That's way less than the intimidating tower of work that kicked me out of it 2 years ago.

I know I won't be doing commissions for a while after this. Requests, maybe. Some free sketches or such, things that go fast and don't make me feel pressured. That's gonna be a good way for me to get some additional practice in, too. But mostly, there's so many ideas that have piled up in my notebook over the months, things I want to draw, techniques I want to try out. I want to try and build up a bit of a portfolio for myself, with concept sketches, full-on digital paintings, maybe some design things in there as well. I've got a character that I'm just burning to give a proper shape, I want to draw some pictures of my shark and maybe see if I can pick that comic idea back up that hasn't really been gone.

I've got a fun little challenge figured out that I want to try once I'm done with my main workload, something to help me work quickly and stay focussed on a picture. I'm not going to tell you much more about it since, y'know... the way I know myself this might still take a few months until then, but I'm looking forward to it personally.


And that's about it! Enjoy your weekends, everyone.

Hey, it's been another long time since we've spoken. I've been in a rut artistically and mentally lately, but I think I'm ready to come back :)

Oh hey! Yeah, it's been a while. I've been kind of vanishing from the Internet for about a year-ish, sorting out some stuff in my private life. Haven't been doing too good artistically, either, but I'm starting to get back into things, so hopefully we'll both manage to get back on our feet! :3

I plan to! I'm already working hard to get back into a proper drawing habit, even moreso than before, and already trying my hands at some new topics altogether, like Texturing and soon possibly 3D modeling. :3
Hope you'll be able to get back into a nice groove as well, who knows, we might be able to do a collab sometime!

Heyyyyy, it's been so long! XD I feel like an arse to never keep up with anyone on here. After all, this was the site where I made some of my longest-lasting friends. Anyway, school has taken over my life and has not allowed me to unclench my fists lol. How about you?

I'm doing alright, thanks for asking. Trying to get my groove back so I can finally start drawing again. Not as easy as I'd hoped, but I'll work it out eventually! Glad to hear you're doing alright finally, though!

XD Ahh art, how I've neglected thee! (Well, I've been knitting, so that's kind of art, I guess.) But yeah, I'm doing well now, I wish things were well for 2/2 people haha. It's getting chilly here, but I suppose my North American weather has nothing on yours lol.
