It’s been quite a while since last time that I was in the habit of drawing particularly regularly, and my work has suffered / failed to progress as I’d like because of it. Hence, I’ve decided to start honing my discipline in drawing and becoming more comfortable and accomplished with my sad, underused but much-beloved tablet.
So I’m trying to commit myself to whipping out either my tablet or my sketch book and doing at least one sketch daily. Some will probably be more complete and polished than this one, some will be less so. It just depends on what I’m feeling that day. I’ll strive to keep it up. Hence my little feature here of sketch-a-day. I don’t know that I’ll post every single one here, or in DeviantArt, but I’ll probably put them all up on flickr.
Also, this is helping me get psyched up to actually finish some projects that I’ve promised people but have been lollygagging about.
This particular one, like a lot of the ones I’ll be doing soon I’m sure, is related to a design project I’ve given myself: LoA.
She’s an Alan (plural: Alanir), one of th eraces I’ve been trying to revive and finish designing after I originally came up with them almost a decade ago. I’m thinking that I’ll probably want to actually punch the color back a bit more and make them paler and creamier in color, but this sketch is a useful part of establishing that.
More sketches of Alanir can be found here.
