From one extreme to the other, I didn’t get nearly enough high quality sleep last night, and I’m definitely feeling it today.
I wanted to see just how fast I could do my warmup page today. The speed definitely impacted accuracy, but it was a fun experiment.
The rest of my art day was spent drawing my kids for my grandfather’s Christmas gift.
Drawing my own kids is an incredible challenge. But…it’s getting there. I’m just slowly building values and trying to get the lighting to match up.
The fact that I’m using photo reference and trying to make the lighting match…well…that’s the hard part.
What went well?
- Lots of drawing time today.
- Progress on a Christmas gift.
What needs work?
- I’m dead today. I’ll get there, though.
What did I learn?
I’m going to have to figure out what’s going on with my energy levels. Tonight I’ll be eating a super light dinner, getting in bed early, shutting down COMPLETELY by 6 p.m. We’ll see what happens.
