"September is already here, time to really ensure I'm maximizing my free time to do what I've set out to do in the next two months. (side note - I never completed the website, which was an August goal... not a good precedence I'm setting)..."
"So went ahead and took my pose sketch for K and gave her the full treatment. Still need to work on my accents and accessories for her to add a little bit more character, but I'm feeling good about her at this point. Also inked this time and I definitely approve of the added line quality/clarity it adds to the finished product...."
"A slightly more loose pose, some hand gestures, a light facial expression and an asymmetrical hair style and I feel like K has way more personality than she did just 24 hours ago. Totally shouldn't waste half my day on social media weeding through all the shit going on in the world right now, just for a few dank memes... Just not a productive way to spend my time. I must FOCUS!!! ... "
"Productivity produces results. Really took a look at what I had created so far and K just wasn't looking like and feeling like the K I had pictured her in my head. So, I really analyzed and picked apart what was working and what wasn't..."
"Started really considering "work" style clothing and as it is somewhat steampunk, why not play with some overalls and suspenders. My head hurts as technology is acting stupid, so that will be all for today. See you tomorrow..."
"Making progress and decisions to who K really is and what she looks like. The fog is pushing back, and allowing me to picture her more clearly in my mind. I have some cool ideas for her clothing and I'm excited to start exploring that soon..."
"Here we go!!! Really made some progress in these exploration sketches. Although, still undecided about whether to have a neat and tidy pulled back fro or a little bit more messy one..."
"Feels good to get some progress in on K. Planning to do some more hairstyle explorations in the future. I like the pulled back fro, but I'm not sure if I want to go simple and neat or a bit more messy... "
"Also, on an awesome side note. My leg/anatomy training is already paying dividends as I had much easier time creating the original pose for this sketch (not that I didn't struggle, but it was minimal and it took me far less time to notice when things weren't looking right). I'm happy, happy, happy..."
