11/24/14 One Year Style Challenge Modification
Hello my lovelies! Some of you may have noticed I did not submit a one year style challenge picture this week after having something up every week for the past 15 weeks dutifully. It's not that I was sick or didn't have enough time to make something, but I've been struggling with the whole challenge because it has not really been that challenging for me stylistically-speaking. I spoke to Aioue
who was the one who came up with the challenge and I let him know that having only one week for each image makes it nearly impossible for me to produce more complicated designs. Every week I have three days where I work at home depot, I've had a slew of doctor/dentist appointments because I have an abscessed tooth, a viral infection in my throat/nose, and I am going to be getting full on gastric bypass surgery March 9th. On top of all of that I had five art commissions I was trying to get done because my clients always come first over anything else. Now I am down to just two projects with a possible new one on the way, and it has been so stressful to find the time and energy to produce anything beyond simple styles each week. I was never able to get ahead and produce two or three in one week to buy me time for larger projects.
So the solution is simple, the style challenge is now going monthly. This means that it will take me more than a year to have 52 pieces, BUT it will give me the time I need to still juggle all the aspects of life and make time to do more challenging, complex pieces that will actually improve my art abilities and teach me something. Now I can finally finish that Joe Quesada piece and not push it aside to whip up something fast just to avoid failing the challenge. That is a huge burden off my shoulders. I'm excited now to take this challenge to a whole new level and start learning how to digitally paint better and replicate more complicated styles to show myself I can
do it. My final bit for now is that the Joe Quesada style Kalim will be up between now and the last day of November. I will announce when I am livestreaming progress on it since that is a piece I am really into and really excited about. Thank you guys for sticking with me on this journey, see ya soon!
