What I didn't realize was that two years later I would still be haunted by the ghost of my own commitment to myself. It' s February of 2015 and I'm only now nearing my goal of 365 drawings.
All this time, I've been posting my drawings on Facebook and Google+ because I thought it would be fun to show people my progress (and sometimes frustration) as the year went on. Since that format has become more and more confusing and more and more difficult to look at, I thought I'd try using this format to make things easier to deal with.
Without further ado, here's my 2013 drawing project up until this point. Enjoy the ups and downs of a project that's gone far too long, and for my honest, frustrated, and inspired expressions.
[Note: Most of the comments are ones that I made when I originally posted the photos online.
EDIT: For some reason I can't correct all the text unless I make it weird colors. So enjoy the purplish text. :( ]
A rough start, but it was 2 in the morning.
I tried drawing my face on my own (apparently baby faced), and in Disney, Gobelins, and Ghibli styles (I cheated on the Ghibli one way too much).
Day 3 .
I'm practicing using a computer drawing tablet. It's actually really fun.
Woke up. Drew three bears.
Day 5 .
Now is where I am.
Day 6 .
And now you know.
Day 7.This may look simple, but each person received a LOT of love. Thank you all for being a part of my life! And sorry to Tabby for making you look as ugly as Lucas.
This is what happens when you read Seuss and watched The Hobbit in one day.
What DO they teach in schools these days?
Advancing to the HD era, and apparently looking like Johnny Depp.
Not my fault
My musical history in a nutshell
I love charcoal. And by that I mean I am terrified of it.
Day 14 .Drawing from memory. I think I'm going to make this a series. We actually did really good!
It's midnight and my eyes are dry.
Listening to Pomplamoose on the way to D.C.
On the way back to PDX from D.C.
Day 18.Speed sketching on the flight to make up for lost time. Just turn on the worship music and go for it.
Take a peek inside my brain. This is how I see this song.
Nomatter how hard we try...
Let it be
Day 23 .This idea had been in my mind ever since I returned from D.C. where I was busy having my life changed.
Ancient creatures from my imagination.
I've been interested in how much you can simplify something until it loses it's meaning. What is the most basic representation of something like a tree?
Day 26 .
Flint told me to draw a runny nose.
This was really fun. I got to make full use of my lightbox (actually meant for sewing, so it sucks) by doing 15 passes. I also discovered I have access to colored mechanical pencil led. I wanted to make it look like a Chris Sanders drawing but I don't think it shows at all.
I'm super into Chris Sanders right now just in case noone noticed.
I've got to pay some tribute to Paperman with some fast sketches. Because it is perfect, after all, and it deserves more than a second of my time.
Day 30.I've got to give props to the folks over at Disney because some of these shapes are really difficult. Every proportion is extremely fine tuned. It's hard :/
I love the French
Charcoal was perfect for this
Exploring the limits of a pencil.
I think I should get back into planking
Day 35 .
I like drawing still life from my science textbook.
More science textbook. That kid got a 3rd degree burn, and that's a rattlesnake.
Bad hair day this morning.
I tried drawing using the least amount of lines possible. I wanted to see if I can draw something using long, sweeping lines instead of short choppy ones. I got some good shapes out of it.
Inspired by Minkyu Lee's Academy Award nominated short "Adam and Dog". It's just so so good.
Will, your wish is my command.
I've had this idea bouncing around in my head for a couple weeks...
What is it that gives characters so much appeal?
Sketching wildlife! Nanook posed long enough for me to get his lower half, but I wanted him to turn his head. So I got his attention and he got up and came to me. >.>
Bloaty is probably the most agreeable cat that I've ever had.
Hands (and anything) are more fun to draw when they have personality, rather than being laid out like cardboard.
Day 48.I'm reading through "The Illusion of Life" by Ollie Johnston and Frank Thomas. My admiration for Disney grows every time I explore their incredible talents--especially Milt Kahl. He makes everyone else feel like doodling children.
The best animal.
WAS going to draw Darth Vader, but something...happened...
It's about time I put on my big boy underpants and learn how to draw an actual human.
You've got to start somewhere, right?
I thought my learning process might be a little boring, so I made things a little more interesting.
I'm starting to get more confident. Maybe I should spend more than a few hours on something and see how polished I can make it.
I don't understand why people give feet a negative stigma. I like em'.
I'm going to animate something like this.
The Toothless rig is probably the most complex and beautiful rigs I have ever heard of.
Digital vs traditional
Stream-of-consciousness drawing to music.
I tried the Disney exercise of giving emotion to a flour sack. It's harder than it looks.
I'm really enjoying my new pen.
I love gesture drawings.
It's challenging to draw emotions without the help of facial expressions or symbols.
No joke, I've actually been thinking about this for over a week. It's so simple! All I'd need is a paintball mask and a jacket--preferably leather. That way, my identity is protected, I feel comfortable, I look cool, AND I save money. I've got it all worked out.
"Once you figure out how to draw hands well, once you know the bone structure and how hands work mechanically and emotionally, the rest of the human figure will come fairly easy to you!" (-- One of Andreas Deja's art teachers)
Don't worry, just making up some fake creatures. Except the baboon. That one is very real.
Watched Life of Pi last night.
He's playing sax for Williams' score of "Catch Me If You Can".
My brother's LoL champion came to wish him a happy birthday.
I watched The Croods last Sunday and I finally got around to drawing more Chris Sanders art. I have to say, a lot of his storyboards look better than the finished film. The film is awesome though nonetheless.
More experimentation with the human figure. I'm really interested in the curvature of the calf and forearm right now. Those look cool if I can just figure them out.
I drew this with charcoal. ^_^
I drew this in the park. It was really windy.
I tried drawing Ultimate Frisbee players from memory.
Just trying to wrap my head around squash&stretch and its many applications.
Nintendo's designs are incredible. I'm so glad I bought Hyrule Historia. ^_^
Day 80 (rough).
I decided to save both my rough draft and the finished version because the both look good in different ways.
Messing around with creature design a little.
Still enjoying Hyrule Historia. Nothing beats a book full of pretty pictures. :)
Apparently, birds look really cool and they're a joy to draw. They aren't hard to form because there are so many different types of bird shapes, so you can hardly go wrong.
I thought it'd be fun to morph the bodily proportions of the human body and see what I come up with.
Some more sketches (I couldn't fit many here). I've been taking the skeletal structure of different animals and using them to understand how to draw animals. I am getting a basic understanding of how and how not to draw creatures according to the laws of nature.
I'm designing a logo for my club.
I'm going to count this even though I traced heavily. It still took a long time, especially because I had to learn how to convert a bitmap drawing to a vector drawing.
I'm almost a month behind on my drawing. I won't let spring term get the best of me! I embrace eternity! I AM ONE!
These drawing suck, but what matters is I'm starting to understand what it means to infuse drawings with purpose and character. I've always known it was important, but now I think I'm beginning to understand it practically. Without a defined character or story, there is only an empty shell. There's no direction. :o
It's interesting how Ghibli puts both incredible detail and cartoonism into their drawings. They can look totally imaginative and realistically detailed at the same time. That goes for their storytelling as well.
Still thinking about what it would really be like to fly in the context of my own life.
I'm having some trouble reverse-engineering other artists' drawings for some reason. Maybe I shouldn't even practice that.
I hit a low point there.
I got a full-body mirror! New worlds have been opened up to me.
I used to draw things like this a lot more. Things with motion to them. I would imagine it as a moving, flowing thing with momentum and force.
I decided to redraw a childhood character that I made up long ago. I used to write and illustrate my own sci-fi series, and this was one of the main enemy races my hero had to face.
Inspired by the album cover art for "Beautiful Things".
I'm back in the swing of things! This is fun again!
Listening to Hiromi.
Thinking of the ballet sections in Fantasia 2000. I drew these just from memory.
Olivia mentioned something like this.
Not much to say here. Thinkin' about some head shapes I guess.
Forcing creativity for me means forcing ugly faces.
Sometimes I have an idea, but I don't devote enough planning or finesse to it. At all.
Starting a new sketch book!
Want to draw like the French? Make a random shape and make it a person. The only rule: everything has to be round.
Making a habit of drawing late at night. I don't think this should happen again. I'm not satisfied with it.
Trying to infuse emotion into my drawings by...drawing a person being emotional. I guess that works!
It happened again! Just trying to fill a page at 2 in the morning.
Not gonna lie, this was totally inspired by Headless Productions. They're awesome.
It's strange how a lot of different things can influence me during my day and come out in my drawings.
I think the jelly bean is a good basis for bodily structure.
One of my friends used to say "would you still be my friend if I looked like this?"
Experimenting with what proportions make something appealing and cute.
See what I did there?
Reminds me of Fantasia 2000
Doodling how fun swimming at High Rock is before I went that day.
I think it's fun to make a doodle and then try to bring it to life.
House sitting all alone gives you the opportunity to be so honest. Can't we be like that all the time?
I'm getting out of the rut that I've been in when I say "I want to draw just like so-and-so". Now I just say to myself, "I can draw ANYTHING. So what'll it be?"
Couldn't draw that eye no matter how hard I tried.
The mentality that I bring to every instrument I play is directly related to how I play djembe. I feel like djembe is like one of the most visceral, basic, and primal instruments, especially for me because it's how I started out playing music.
This is basically all I used to draw growing up. I used to just make silly faces and take a LOT of pride in each one as individual characters.
I like how adding a window to the rocket can almost change the whole meaning.
I'm committed to uploading almost anything at this point. I like some of these shapes though.
I don't paint, but when I do...
My legs have been getting beefed up lately. Who needs a car when you've got one of these?
This didn't start out meaning anything, but now that I think of it, it looks like I'm saying I'm tired of doodles. I'm really not though.
Maggie May. Enough said.
Do I have to say something interesting about EVERY drawing? Ok, umm... this one took me like... 2 minutes.
I've been training myself to break the rules that I've created.
Sometimes I get influenced by things I watch and then end up drawing with big shapes.
Just realized my scanner has a smudge on the top middle area. So THAT'S why all my drawings have smudges!
Weird how things seem so solid in your mind until you put them on paper.
I refuse to be cynical.
I like the unconventional jaw structure of whales and lizards.
Don't look down on me, but... I drew my D&D character and wrote a short history for him.
I am more than happy with how this turned out.
Listening to music late at night. You know the time--when night becomes morning (but you really know that it's still nighttime nomatter what the clock tries to tell you).
I saw this going differently in my mind.
Romans 16:20. How ironically awesome.
Just wanted to draw something stupid and presumptuous.
I found a big bag of watercolor supplies in my house! This opens up a whole new world to me! I'm so excited!
Sat down to play with watercolors again when music from "Where the Wild Things Are" started playing.
(I like the way its blue eye paint bled so it looks like he's crying. Note to self: don do dat)
My plans for the night: watch some anime and turn my brain off before bed.
God's plans for my night: DON'T watch something stupid and stumble upon a really uplifting sermon.
Just pretend this is a single frame of an animated film.
Saw an amazing pencil test of this character by Eric Goldberg and drew a frame from it. I like the way the style of the Nine Old Men still shows through his drawings even today.
(EDIT: I'm not sure if Goldberg was actually mentored by any of the Nine Old men. But it looks like the "traditional" Disney house style nonetheless)
This was super fun.
I used my didgeridoo as a model sword, but realized that they are held way differently, so I just made up a weird weapon.
Listened to "Ulysses" by Josh Garrels and thought of Ponyo.
A quote from Jefferson Bethke.
I wanted to describe wind without using typical symbols to indicate it. I think I won?
Had a dream where my friend poured juice from his empty cup into my empty cup. It was awesome.
He soaks through your raincoat and in through your skin.
I drew that face weeks ago and forgot about it. Today I opened my drawing journal to draw something and found it there. I don't know what it was meant for originally but I gave it a body and called it that.
Watched District 9. Liked it a lot. WAS going to draw a Prawn, but just doodled something else. Whatev
Vitality through proximity
Had to get my hair wet to see what that looks like.
Aren't we all?
Is his head kindof small? I won't say anything if you don't.
Miyazaki has a way of imagining completely irresistible images.
Just started and kept going until I decided I was going to make it a thing. That's how it goes sometimes.
Except in the real Choose Your Own Adventure books every other page end with you being dead.
I'm not giving up without a fight.
Trying to draw with long, fast contour lines. I like making curves that way.
Swing flag dancing. I tried to draw her from an interesting angle to challenge myself. I did it without reference too. It's a good exercise.
There's some stick figures and...eh. I don't care. Just look at it.
I need to figure out a way to make my colors darker more easily. I'm tired of the super bright, childish look.
This was really fun. I like the effect I tried to do when the colors overlap over things and blur everything underneath.
Directly translating music into a drawing is hard.
I'm really fascinated by stories like The Chronicles of Narnia and Where the Wild Things are, where regular people become wild and dirty and free. I wish we could all be like that.
Realized I stumbled upon a theme. Without thinking about it, I've been making things that yell to the right like this.
This was for a contest on Rhett and Link's show "Good Mythical Morning".
I guess this is just how it's going to be some days.
Don't like my stupid doodles? Oh yea? Well someday when I'm famous they'll be worth a FORTUNE, you just wait and see.
Watched The Secret of NIMH and really enjoyed it this time. I guess I didn't get it when I was a kid.
Earth: It's awesome and you can go there for free.
Playing the Wind Waker HD made me want to draw creatures. But you just can't beat Nintendo's creature designs.
I've been playing the Wind Waker HD and admiring it's beautiful art style. I love the exaggeration and bright colors, and the way they ink their lines. Beautiful. I should've taken more time on Ganon though...
Drew a Pokemon based on what I thought the name sounded like. Whatever.
I'm practicing with my Chinese paintbrush. If you aren't very confident then your strokes will fall flat, so you've got to really believe in yourself.
I outlined him in pencil before I committed to ink though. I'm not THAT confident.
What's better than drawing still life? Freeze framing your favorite show and drawing that.
I got some watercolor pencils as a birthday gift. Basically, the idea is that you're drawing with a stick of dried watercolor pigment and then you can apply water to it to blend it.
It didn't turn out the way I wanted it, but it was a good test run.
I think it's much easier to be a prolific artist when your sketchbook is super tiny. There's less space to fill and it feels less daunting.
Don't know what to draw? Just cop out and draw your hand. Can't go wrong.
I swear banjo must've been created with Sufjan in mind.
Observe the illusive Jr. College students in its natural habitat.
Just drawing what's playing on my iPod.
When Elijah comes into the picture, things get extreme.
I like making pictures to make people laugh.
She told me not to post this. ;)
I should've posted this earlier but I forgot about it. Anyways...yeah. I'm 21 now.
This idea looked WAY better in my head and now I'm regretting the amount of effort I put into it. Oh well.
I just realized that stick figures aren't really part of my vocabulary anymore. This is good!
Yay! Only 165 days to go...in two months. I believe!
This is me tired and wanting to go to sleep.
I think this idea came like 10% close to being what I wanted it to be. Oh well. It's an alright 10%.
Drew a head shape I liked and realized it was Ariel. Or some random lady.
I don't know what happened, but I had one of the best drawing experiences I've had in a long time. I wish I could feel this confident every day. I'm actually having fun.
I've been drawing heads since I was like 9 years old. I still have old books full of heads that I drew. They're mostly stupid weirdo heads that make me laugh. Even today it's what I draw by default when I'm not doing anything else.
This one actually made me laugh out loud. I love that pose.
I draw whatever I flippin' want. GOT A PROBLEM?
I drew this on watercolor paper, but couldn't find the courage to color it.
More faces I guess
I don't even know
Found a new artist and thought about imitating him. But nope.
If I draw 4 drawings every day then I'll make my year-end deadline. It's going to be tough.
Waiting for the bus.
On the bus
Listening to Bach on the bus
Found the best most efficient way to draw both deciduous and evergreen trees on the bus.
A lot of things can happen on the bus.
Leaving Middle Eastern History class and thinking about how much responsibility I have to fix the world. The more I learn, the more I feel responsible to do more than have an opinion. But I think that I am just one person--one drop in a sea--and the best thing I can do it to take advantage of where and who I am to change things when I get the opportunity. We all share the weight of responsibility together, but none carry all the weight alone.
Tried to draw a shy person and got embarrassed at myself.
She's a butte, aint' she?
This totally counts.
Some highlights from the Picture Telephone games we played at the Youth Retreat.
Drawing hands from memory on the bus.
Eggnog is one of the greater things in life.
I'm surprised at how easy it is to draw a turkey from memory.
I like playing with perspective.
Fighting people or something. I'm tired.
Saw some interesting chins and jaw lines today.
Sketching is challenging in the bus because of all the shaking. It loosens up my drawings until they're almost beyond comprehension.
We got our tree.
I love the water towers in Lebanon. They stand behind trees in random areas of town, ominously watching us like someone peeking through the curtains.
And on your left you'll see some elves. Anyways. Moving along now.
Some guy texting.
It's too cold. Here's this.
Took turns drawing with a friend. I forgot how fun that was. ^_^
Speed sketching Ratatouille. Surprisingly fun.
Drew this the night before it snowed. This would be prophetic if the snow weren't so powdery and soft.
More Ratatouille speed sketching. It's fun because you have to take a quick mental picture of the action before the characters move and its all spoiled.
Since parts of my church were getting remodeled, I took a board from the floor of a Sunday school room and spent the next couple weeks carving off the top layer of glossed wood with a tiny pocket knife.
I've been looking at it for months now wondering what to paint on it.
I decided to fingerpaint some Native American styled stuff on it, and I think it compliments the rugged surface well.
I'm no good at backgrounds.
An inside joke with me and my friends playing Smash Bros. This is "The Prophesy".
Drawing at church.
Watched "The Nativity Story" last night.
Various lights around my church
Gave this away as a gift at a White Elephant party.
I love the way Ghibli films have this mix of absurd caricature and realistic detail. On one hand, you have this cute make-believe animal with obtuse proportions, but on the other hand there is amazing detail in the teeth, fur, and in the movement. It's an interesting contrast.
I love things that look iconic.
I'm not worthy!
This finishes off another sketchbook. I think I'm going to keep trying and draw 115 things in 14 days. This is going to be intense.
Another White Elephant gift made on the fly. For this one, I'll encourage the recipient to color it him/herself. It's lazy genius.
One of the few Bluth movies I can stand.
There's something so freggin' cute about Minion even though he should be gross and scary. It's awesome.
The REAL best Wonka.
Pauline Baynes' illustrations make fantasy seem real somehow.
More iconic Baynes illustrations.
My heart is in a constant battle over whether I loath or adore "Where the Wild Things Are". It's like liking to look at spiders even though they give you nightmares.
Cave Story is such a great game.
Something hanging on the wall at a friend's house. It's evidence of his true Nordic roots.
It's amazing how well you think you know a character until you have to draw them from memory, nomatter how simple they may be.
I think I got the pose right, but had no idea how he was supposed to dress.
This was super fun, and wasn't nearly as hard as it would've been if I had done it at the beginning of the year. I think I can feel myself getting better.
Bill Watterson has such an awesome artistic range and it's all expressed in his comic. He goes from gritty realism to whimsical cartoonism in moments.
I gave this my best shot. I don't want to take any credit for this, you should just look at the original. I don't know who did it, but I found it on Google and it looks beautiful. http://fc09.deviantart.net/fs71/f/2012/092/0/4/carnage_by_chasejc-d4usc7t.jpg
Sometimes I like to look through the Image Galleries in the Metroid Prime games and peruse the artwork. It's inspiring.
Gesture drawings without reference is hard. I think I need a model or something.
Watching Monsters University with the Audio Commentary on.
I thought I would draw a variety of monsters but Mike ended up being the most interesting and easy to draw.
A drawing within a drawing.
This was weird to draw because I'd get distracted and then when I looked back down to draw I would get really confused.
Not exactly festive, but whatever.
I just draw my hand when I don't know what else to look at.
Painted this for my mom as a Christmas gift.
I'm officially collecting "Art of" books now. If anyone wants to get me a good gift, just go for those. ;)
Can you imagine alien beings finding NASA's robot and thinking,"What kinds of freaky creatures created THIS?"
I didn't make my deadline, but I'm continuing my project into 2014 to finish it off.
Finally got around to drawing an idea from my list of things I should draw.
Sketching a place from memory.
Drawing at Lucas' house.
Emotions can be pesky.
Ears look weird, huh?
I'm glad somebody bootlegged Frozen just so I can do sketches of it. The animation in this movie is adorable.
I just got Richard Williams' "The Animator's Survival Kit" in the mail the other day. I'm going to start the lessons pretty soon here.
I've spent a whole year trying to shake the thought that when I get serious about learning animation I'll figure out that I don't have what it takes. It's about time I tackle thought that head-on.
Some people will probably never know that I've sketched them... Or that I admire them.
Smears are fun!
This happened to me. #walkforlife
Coming up with a shorthand for the human heart. I'm sure it'll come in handy sometime. ;)
Just killing some time today with some of Lucas' drawing paper.
More doodles on the other side. I tried to demonstrate some smears too.
I always get ideas like "I should put these two similar characters together!" and then I realize it will take me more than 10 seconds to draw so I just go blbllpphhhahdf. And there it is.
I drew the monster and Lucas drew the rest.
I like how that bird looks. It feels good drawing something that you like to look at.
I drew something I liked, so I'm not about to let it slip away from me.
Watched the Winter Olympic games last night and drew this today from memory.
If anyone out there wants a model for quick gesture drawings, just tune in to the Games every night. It's kinetic bliss.
My favorite part about the dentist's office: the Dr. Suess collection in the kid's area.
Playing around with someone else's poses.
The Star bellied Sneeches have stars upon thars.
U! S! A!
U! S! A!
Olympians are the best models.
I asked my mom to teach me how to draw a horse.
I've had this in my pocket ever since I was in 8th grade.
Taking turns drawing with a friend always makes the weirdest things.
Steven, your impatience is showing.
A haiku for you
Another total meltdown. But you just have to tell yourself "maybe this will be cool when I'm famous and smart and I'll look back and laugh triumphantly at my pitiful past self."
When I'm doodling, I basically still draw the same types of things that I drew when I was a kid. Is that okay?
Trying to draw without anthropomorphizing everything.
I love doodling little characters without any direction. It's so freggin' fun for some reason.
I guess I must've been in a bad mood because I spent a lot of time making fun of everything I had doodled.
Group drawing with 2 other friends.
Drawing class has gotten me thinking differently about drawing.
Charcoal forces you to shade rather than contour, because the values are epic.
This photo looks so bad that I can't comment on the sketches.
I just want to see these characters MOVE.
Mindless doodles while waiting for the bus.
And now, some assignments from art class. Let's call it a stimulus package to finally get me done with this project.
Behold! A shoe
Charcoal that doesn't do Mary's Peak justice. Sorry, God, you're better than me.
More art class still-life. This mask was fun to wear, too.
Single-point perspective practice. I've been doing this all my life, so it's not really practice at this point.
I never found time to learn this. Oh well. It's for the best.
I don't like shading things because I tend to like the clean, graphic look better.
Drawing flowers in the greenhouse.
Practicing different shading techniques.
Charcoal is like fingerprinting.
I got a prompt to take a toy out of a pile and use it as the subject of a comic strip. I pulled out a life-sized Mr. Bill toy and it made my day.
My scanner is too small... :(
I haven't drawn for a while.
I CAN DRAW BEEETLEZ!
My latest favorite show: "Ping Pong: The Animation".
Drawing at Stuff Mart. I work here now...
I always forget how fun drawing is until I quit for a while and come back to it.
I usually just start drawing without knowing exactly what I want and it just ends up being something,
Fun times at Stuffmart on break.
Sometimes I literally just scribble on paper and all sorts of insights come from it. It's like a magic trick.
While I was randomly scribbling, I figured out how to draw most of a goose with one S-curve.
A jar of fake flowers in the break room.
Shaq's lookin' good.
I need a better box.
Just consider yourself lucky that I even choose to publish this stuff.
Okay, seriously. At this point I'm literally just scribbling on a page.
I made up a game where I scribble something randomly and then try to make something out of it. It's actually kind of fun for a warm up (except I don't warm up FOR anything...I need to work on that).
This is my first time using oil pastels. I love them.
Hopefully I'll finish my project THIS year! haha
Still trying to figure out oil pastels
Drawing with kids at elementary school in special ed class (these are all my drawings). One of the kids drew me, and I copied their drawing on the top left. I thought the hair choice was amazing.
I'm bored of my own dumb doodles. I think I need to move on.
Day 357.Just trying to fill a page. *yawn*
Day 358.I've been thinking about this a lot lately.
Song of the Sea is wonderful.
I haven't seen many films that look quite like Tom Moore's. The art direction is so bold and consistent throughout the entire movie. There is hardly any volume or perspective, so everything from characters to backgrounds are presented in terms of shapes and colors, not with dimension.
I am fascinated with Celtic art, and I love how Cartoon Saloon is so good at capturing that style in feature animation. I am glad that they are so in love with their cultural heritage and strive to keep it alive in this way. Keep it up!
Day 361."Personally, I prefer the pizza cake."
House sitting watching Lilo and Stitch. Why aren't there any more hand-drawn Chris Sanders movies?
Found some random Disney short called "The Reluctant Dragon." It makes me so angry that it's hilarious. This freaking guy just--well the short story is this guy gets to live MY dream, and goes "meh. This is sort of neat.". He walks around the Disney studio in the 40s and sees nearly every department and gets to meet famous animators and Disney himself and goes "This is kindof neat. Good thing my wife forced me to come." He gets all this awesome free stuff for no reason and-- ok I'm done. Trust me, it's really infuriating. Also, EXTREMELY racist. Like REALLY REALLY racist.
Can't believe there's one day left. Also can't believe it took me this long.
This is something weird I drew, and I'm not sure if I hate it or like it. No, I think I hate it.
It's finally over! I did it!
And not only the Drawing project, but the Nickfluence competition. I think I won by being the most obsessed. :3
I don't know if I can see any obvious improvement after doing this project, but I think I have. It was really fun, and I sort of want to do it again, but without such a huge deadline. I just need to draw more.
Anyways, thanks for looking at my art!
And there there they are! Thanks, everyone!
