Purple Anomaly Complete: Day 364

Purple Anomaly Complete by Robert Chapman

Well, here we are, the end of the road. This is my last “traditional” art post because tomorrow I’m doing something special and it won’t really feel like a regular post at all. Because it’s going to take several hours to put it all together, I’ve already started working on it. I also have a celebratory get together to go to at some point tomorrow and so I won’t have a whole lot of time to do all of the work required in a single day.

I guess this kind of did turn out looking a little bit like a Pokemon, eh? But I prefer to think of it as something that would live on the bottom of a lake on some distant alien planet. I think my favorite bit in this painting is the water reflection I painted on top of the creature. I absolutely could spend a few more days adding extra features, details, and the bottom of the lake itself, however I have bigger (and more important) things to work on when this year long project concludes tomorrow.

That being said, I’m going to try and take a few days off and see how that feels. Because I’ve been creating things every day for a year, I want to see how the quality of my work (and even the work process) changes when I step away from it for various amounts of time. I’ll still keep in touch with what I’m doing via the usual social media (Twitter, Facebook, and Patreon namely) as always, but it might be a day or two before I have something to show. Or maybe it’ll be even longer, and you’ll only see the final product. Rather than snippets of what I’m working on every day, as I’ve been doing.

No matter what though, for my Patreon subscribers you’ll be getting the regular updates and screenshots of my progress. I only have one subscriber at the moment, but hopefully that changes significantly within the next little while. I’m considering putting the monthly subscriber amount for viewing my art preview posts down to $1, and I’ll likely follow through with that. I see some other successful artists with their posts at $1, so that’s probably wise for me to follow suit.

Anyways, ramble ramble ramble. What do you think? $1/month is probably a good, eh? I’m afraid of selling myself too short, but at the same time I want to get friends, family, and interested patrons involved in what I’m making.
