The title is a coincidence, the white queen does start at d1, it actually was supposed to mean "day one".

Sketching is good! Have you ever tried doing the shading lines at different angles, or following the contour of the object?

As a matter of fact, I have. Many different angles usually result in a disaster. Even now, after 59 days of sketching (which is an eternity!), I am trying to integrate things like that.

Following the contour of the object sounds really interesting! Maybe I should excessively use it in one future sketch to see what effect it has on me.

Thank you. There are a lot more, waiting to be uploaded. I'll try to have some ready today, after all, I think, I'm at D28 (and the next one will be finished today) and I have to get one of the last ones ready for Dreamers-Welcome's monthly challenge!

I really like this. It's just so... can't find a word, but it's really great.
