EDIT: Ok so apparently I'm an even bigger derp and decided to make the month of daily several-hour sketches the same month as the height of essay/midterm season. So...I won't be uploading these as regularly as I intended by a long shot but I'm still going to try to do 30 sketches to see if I can improve at all. And if not...well...hang in there for Drawcember I guess...
Hey folks! Since I'm a big derp and missed out on "Inktober" I've decided to create a daily sketch challenge for myself. I'm calling it "Novavember" because I like to think I'm creative. New sketchbook, a few new media, a new thing every day.
By a "new thing" I mean hopefully I won't repeat the same subjects too often, always a new image, and nothing copied for the sake of making it easy on myself. I'm going to try not to repeat the same subjects if I can, though I'm often going to have to default to whatever inspiration strikes me first, since these are daily pieces after all. I'm not going to allow myself much room for revision, unless I feel a piece is really deserving of a digitally-painted or heavily-edited version.
That being said I'm going to admit up front: Some of these will likely be sketch skeletons for future digital pieces. Some of these will be total crap. Some of these are going to be a lot better/worse than others given lack of/inspiration, time constraints, stress, etc.
I'm going to try to keep the amount of digital adjustments I do to an absolute minimum. These will be limited to: cropping an image if I get fade/visible book coils/etc, using the Levels/Saturation adjustment in Photoshop because my scanner tends to make images look washed-out, and rotating images slightly in Photoshop to account for tilt in scanning and in my freehand sketching.
So that's it! I'll be putting out sketches a day or two after I finish them, so prepare to actually see stuff in your inboxes! Until next time!
