Daily Art October 2015

After starting daily art on the 1st of September and successfully drawing every day in September, I’ve continued the habit and drawn for all 31 days of October too. I was initially trying to challenge myself to draw people but I found that was making the need to draw a bit overwhelming and I was procrastinating or avoiding it, so I switched back to drawing whatever I felt like – mostly things related to TV shows or films I’d been watching.

Again, the art’s very variable in quality and many would’ve benefited from more time being spent on them or a ‘second draft’, but I’m very happy with the achievement of keeping this going for 2 months and I even made a comic on the 8th! I think I’m also getting better at drawing what I was aiming for on the first try and much more comfortable with non-digital art. Next month I think I’d like to experiment with more digital art techniques, and hopefully actually make some more progress with my planned comic.

Here’s a tiled image showing examples of something I drew every day:
