Going Beyond: Day 108


I’m excited about doing my drawing again today. I suddenly see all kinds of possibilities with the current project I’m working on. I’m really happy with all the little details I’ve added. It might not look like too much of an update from yesterday’s post, but I did work on this guy for about 2 hours this afternoon. The skin looks noticeably better with lots of extra details. We also have the exposed muscle there with some new colors mixed in. Then finally I included a shadow for the face tentacles.

The primary reason I’m getting excited about this project again is that I think I want to redo a lot of the black outline to add even more detail to the overall shape of this guy. I want to do this because now that outline is standing out for me. Not in a good way. I just want to add more curves and small details as I go along the black outline.

I really think I’m just going to keep working on this guy until I feel he’s the best I can possibly make him. So that might take awhile because I think just about everything I’ve done previously I’ve completed to satisfaction, but I’ve never gone beyond that. I always think, “Hey, I think I’m done with this. Time to move on.” but now I’m going to try sticking with one thing and adding more and more until there’s nothing else I could possibly add. This might turn out to be bad. But it’s worth trying.
