Tonight, I decided it was time to grab all the photos from my “Lil’Monsters” polymer clay figure series and post them in their own gallery here.

YES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! With this drawing I have competed what I set out a year ago to do, drawing something every single day of 2011 and with this drawing I accomplished that feat without fail!!! It’s been a long and rough road to get here, especially with life that tends to get in the way and being sick from time to time, but no matter the obstacle, I overcame all those challenges to get a drawing done and uploaded to hold me accountable. Although I still have a ways to go to achieve the status of a professional Fantasy artist, I now have this tomb of work to show I can meet a challenge. I also feel I have improved greatly from where I started and my speed at drawing is amazing! Throughout 2012, I will still be drawing, but at a slower pace and working on one piece for much longer than 30 minutes – 3 hours as was done with every drawing in this project, with the exception of a painting or two.

Regarding how it felt to do this crazy project, the first two months I was excited and couldn’t wait to draw something everyday. The possibilities were endless as nothing came before. However, as the days stretched into months, the volume of my work increased and I found little themes to keep me going through the dry time. The last three months were mostly hell, with me wishing most the time I never had started this project. Just imagine, you can not sleep no matter how tired you are, until you have completed a drawing and uploaded. The drawing became easier as I went and trying to decide what I would draw took the longest. Sometimes I would pass out after getting home from work and set my alarm to wake up and draw something before midnight, which happened a few times. All in all, I’m glad to be done with this project and look forward to starting up a new original animated cartoon series in 2012 with 12 (22 minute) episodes for season 1.

Happy New Year 2012 everyone!!!!!
