Drawing A Day – Day 150

   Posted by: Jon    in Artist, Digital Art & Graphics

Warrior’s Rest Memorial. There is a place where the river parts at a mighty statue of a warrior knight who over watches a the pond to a small campsite memorial in the Borgan Forest. Weary travels rest here with the gaze of the statue to watch over them.

Finally, made it to #150. I must say the hardest part of the journey is trying to decide what to draw each day. I have some themed fallback items I can pick from, but then I have to also be in the mood to want to draw those. On a few occasions I’ve started drawing something and ended up just crumbling the paper and trashing it to start over with something completely different. The next hardest thing would be having the will at this point to draw something every single day without rest or a break or an excuse. I’ve done it so far and intend to keep this going through out the year until Dec. 31, 2011. I already know what one part of my new year’s resolution will be, to never to this again!

Drawing A Day – Day 148

Wizard’s Ambush. For this drawing I used a #2HB pencil, shader, and color tinted in post. Also, adjust the contrast a bit as the originally scanned image was a bit light. I’m hoping to move more into actual scenes than just items, people, or places. Day 148 and still the hardest thing about all of this deciding what to draw each day and trying to start before midnight on a drawing with everything else going on.

The Barrel at the end of the quest. My server provider was having Network issues last night just as I was trying to upload this. So I didn’t miss a day, just could not upload it, which may be the case from time to time as I do plan to travel through out this year. For this drawing I used a #2HB pencil, shaders, and eraser.
