I’ve talked to a couple of people about Thing-a-Day, which is sort of a NaNoWriMo-esque quasi-movement thingy — by which I mean it’s a web-organized thing you decide to participate in for a set period of time, collectively with other people. Er, that isn’t very clear, is it? The website explains it better. Anyway, the point is to do something creative every day in February, for about 20-60 minutes. It can be the same creative something every day, or different things; it can be your usual creativity, or something you’ve never done before.
Me? I’m drawing.
I’ve said for a long time that I’d like to be better at it (my current level being “not very good at all”). I would especially like to be able to draw people realistically, since I think that might help me a lot with visualizing my characters. So I’m going to be drawing twenty-eight faces at a minimum, one per day. (Today I went on for a while longer, drawing three still lifes of decreasing crappiness, but I expect I won’t have the time and inclination for that every day.) I’ve arranged for weekly tip sessions with the inestimable tooth_and_claw, so hopefully I’ll see improvement along the way.
If any of them turn out decently, I might post them. But ain’t nobody except T&C, and maybe not even her, seeing what I did today.
