I'm sort of struggling with my 2d work a lot at the moment, I think I should try doing anatomy studies during the week and try to do a more full piece over the weekends.

I notice that my gesture gets lower in quality after I pass 8 in a day, so I think I will try and do 8 gestures and some form of more focused studies.

At the moment my main goal is to try and draw something a day... anything even if I delete it or throw it away.
I'm stepping up my game for my latest character project.
im now fully dedicated to getting the visual style from the Life is strange games down, im taking my time and making sure each phase of the project is done correctly and to the best of my abilities.

my goal with my "Rachel Tempest" Project is to hit the same visual style from Life is strange Before the storm game but get an overall cleaner end result.
Ive given myself 6-8 weeks to get this project done, so its going to be an interesting few months and should be a lot of fun.

Im planning on doing a Clay render as well... this is because i have something special planned that should add an extra pop to the end results
I have given myself a 7 week challenge to do 1000 gestures... then after that i plan on doing another 1000 gestures over 10 days.
its an area i consistently fall down on and i need to push myself with it more.
in addition to this i will be working on another 3D project to help boost my portfolio further.
I recently found an article online covering information about the Visual graphics in overwatch:…
my plan is to start using similar restrictions they do to help boost my workflow further.
I have recently been hitting a lot of hardware issues... Random freak freezes and bluescreens out of nowhere has made doing any work difficult.

Although i now live in constant fear of my computer giving up for no apparent reason... i have decided that after every crash im going to read a chapter of harry potter... it should give my computer time to calm its self and for me to think through what i need to do after its back up and working... it should technically make my workflow more efficient and gives my brain time to think things through.
I have been trying to improve my 2D work a lot more recently as i heard it can help you benefit in your 3D work.
I wondered around on the internet and found 2 suggestions i found interesting
1: improve your "Gesture Drawing" (30 seconds - 2 min pose drawing) 
2: a Daily copy drawing (copy and existing drawing or something from a picture)

After doing some more research i found my Gesture drawing was Terrible... and it has been about 2 years since i last did a copy drawing.
after doing some research i found an amazing website that lets you set Time intervals to practice your drawing in and pops up random photo's of people posing (
my plan is to start my day doing 9 Gesture drawings for practice at 2 min intervals and end the day doing a copy drawing.
in addition to this over 2018 i will also be doing a daily speed sculpt focusing primarily on heads to get me in to a better flow.
