So a year ago today, on a whim I decided to challenge myself and do a daily sketch challenge for a year which would result in a total of 365 sketches.

I started the challenge for various reasons;

1. train myself to be more consistently productive and to when I upload work
2.gain experience with digital art programs, photoshop,GIMP,etc
3.try various ideas to find inspiration for other work
4.speed up my production process and to become more efficient with my methodology
5.further develop my own artistic style
6.see if its worth using digital media further down the road with my university work.

Regarding the challenge I gave myself some rules to go by, which over time I sortof broke; 

1.all sketches had to be done and uploaded within the day with no prior prep    ( I couldn't start the sketch the previous day and finish it on the day)
2.all digital sketches from scratch, no tracing                                        (with Inktober being the exception to this)
3.all sketches would be "finished"                                                        ( I sortof went against this with some rough looking sketches, but that was the point for those)
4.each sketch/day would be a single sketch rather than a sketchdump       (again I sortof went against a few times)
5.each month would have s different theme  ( at some points ealry on thinking up ideas within a theme was difficult so I decided it was best just to do themes for short periods until I thought of a different idea)

Overall I've used GIMP 2.8, Autodesk Sketchbook for Android, Clip Studio Paint EX for digital sketches and in October ink on paper, my digital sketches varied in resolution until December 8th (sketch no. 181) where I decided to start sketching in 4K (DCI 4K) -4096x 2160 at 600dpi

Intially I did my digital sketches with a WizardPen Genius Tab tablet then, from November 16th (sketch no. 159) I started using a Wacom Intous Pro S tablet 

sketches no. 1-94 done in GIMP
sketches no. 95-112, 114, 144-152, 154-365(?) done in Clip Studio Paint EX
sketches no. 113 & 153 done in Autodesk sketchbook for android
sketches no. 115-143 done in ink on paper for Inktober

Right now I'm still workinng on sketch no.294, not sure how long it'll take me to get all the remaining 81 sketches done and if they'll be done in Clip Studio, since I have since downloaded 2 other programs that I might try out at some point (Krita & Mischief)

side note: I don't have any update/news regarding requests, but once this challenge is complete they will be my primary focus.
  • Listening to: soundcloud, Daft Punk
  • Reading: DC & Marvel graphic novels
  • Watching: gotham, agents of shield
  • Playing: GTAV/online
