Xmas Gift Drawings

I drew a dog. Now I have to finish shading it and colorize before drawing another dog. Also started some other work for the holiday gifting. Just a lot of animation stuff to do as well as working on things for the Adobe Creative Residency. Starting on some of the projects related to the ideas I have. Also gotta get this blog in order. I haven’t decided if I want to continue posting in 2017. If I do then I need to organize the blog better, especially with all the art I create. I’ll let you know in the upcoming weeks what I decide.

Perfect is the Enemy of Good

So I made a small step for my website update. Not quite a rebrand, yet, but I wanted to get new projects up for a job application. So the portfolio page has been updated and populated with a few more projects for viewing. I am working to navigate the site toward videos and illustration eventually. The rebranding process has been quite difficult because I’ve been wavering in the audience due to what my goals are. I’ve been confused about pushing toward hiring managers, freelance work, or just personal projects. They’re all a little different audience wise so picking the projects has been weighing on me. The job app reminded me to just post the projects and get it all up there.

Of course, I have more to add and change, but trying to live by the quote of ‘Perfect is the Enemy of Good.’ I was reminded of this today. I realized I’ve been stalled by the rebrand because of the need for the perfect way of posting projects and the perfect bio…etc. It’s been exhausting on my mental health because I keep working toward a goal only to doubt it because I’m not covering another target audience. Just being reminded of the quote changed my whole perspective on the website today. Better just to finish and have some little misalignments in the design than to continuously start over because it’s not perfect. Glad I made progress.

I also drew this earlier today. I’m calling them all Cactus Rats. Would be an interesting project to illustrate more of these Cactus Rats and give them all little stories…might be an interesting side project.

Till later friends. Remember Perfection is the Enemy of Good.

Camping items

Some quick sketches of items that I took and used during the camping trip. Still need to do some tweaking. Had fun working through the whole process on my cintiq. Usually I end up with a combo of analogue and digital sketches, but this time I just started in photoshop. I’m pleased with the illustrations.

Thanks for viewing!

Doodles

Not my best work, but it’s a doodle. Been working on Nano and Character Animation Bootcamp stuff. I didn’t really have anything planned for tonight’s blog post so I just sketched this out. Normally I would do an Animation Inspiration, but I feel like I need to start doing some more skill based projects rather than just finding any video that inspires me.
