Eightstar Sketch: Air

Hello folks! Welcome to the first official "Something every damn day" post. Have a silly hat!

You WILL have a silly hat.

Annnywho... Today we also have a first in that this is the first publicly shared glimpse into the world of The Eightstar. I find sketching out my thoughts on a potential character/race helps my wheels turn about deeper details, so I tend to take notes on the side as I draw. As I don't feel like submitting you to my sloppy-ass jot-notes, said notes have been typed up more coherently on the scanned image.

With that said, enjoy this doodle:

Also today I worked on finalising a swank little logo for one of the local University's official resource centres. I'll be presenting it to committee tomorrow and posting pics once they've given a yae or nay, so tune in for that! It'll be shiny!

Existence Fail

Hooooooly shit I haven't written since last YEAR. Hoo-ray.

Okay... so... Hi. I'm still alive. I'm still doing stuff. I'm just failing at updating my stuff in any kind of publicly visible fashion. Blarghle.

Been stretching those artistic legs again. A lot of my gifts for others this Christmas were made on the cheap... one of which reminded me how much I enjoy a bit of painting.

Is nice, yes? I think so...

I'm pondering challenging myself to work on art every day from here on this year. Posting SOMETHING to the blog every day as well, even if it's just a half-finished doodle. (Fuck you, January 1st, I'll make my resolutions when I FEEL like it, bitch.)

I have actually been sketching more lately, and getting some really good brain-babies when it comes to fleshing out my eight element world, which I will henceforth refer to as Eightstar. If you think that is a cheesey fantasy-nerd name for a setting, well... don't care.

Cheers, lovelies.
Hope to post again tomorrow.
