Digital sketching
Was doing live digital sketch demos at the local comic con over last weekend... Here's one.
iPad art practice--- dragon
Here is a painting I have been working on over the last week between deadline work... Doing it on the iPad. Learning some new apps there. Started it in Procreate, but then ended up working on it in Artstudio pro. Will post more progress as I go.
Trying out Procreate on the iPad-- WIP
Been messing around with this app on the iPad. I need to get used to it, but so far, very promising app.
So.... I did a new piece of art of an old subject: a dragon. Did my usual thing; screen recorded it (for future tutorial creation) and then time-lapsed it... Then posted it on Facebook, and at the same time, youtube. This was 3 days ago. As of this post, it has been viewed over 71,000 times on Facebook (shared over 1700 times) yet, on youtube it hasn't even broke 1000 views. I'm relieved and perplexed at the same time. Relieved, because up until this moment, I really was wondering if perception of my artwork was going downhill (as I have seen so many newer channels with 6 digit view counts, and I usually can't go much higher than 400). So I thought I would try going back to doing a dragon (my most popular subject when my YT channel was booming). I posted it on FB thinking it would do okay, and was mostly focused on trying to get my YT presence back up there. 

Well... Ultimately, the reverse happened. Which is actually really good. Because now I don't feel so bad about whether or not it is my art-- clearly, it is an algorithm thing, or something. I suppose it could also be the trend of content I have been putting on YT in the last 5 or 6 years. Kind of wandered farther away from this tyoe of art gradually each time by posting a wide swath of "other" work... And snippets only, too. Perhaps I just need to upload one painting a week of this subject and caliber. We'll see. I shall continue on!
