I haven't had a chance to sketch or work on game development this past month due to renovations being completed at home and it has made it a little hard to get work done. I also have been putting more effort into looking for full-time employment. These images are all from one source, my travel sketch pad and second main sketch pad are both currently missing.
I find these days I'm sketching everywhere and it's become quite hard to keep track of where I've drawn and at what time. Some days I feel like drawing with a sketch book and sometimes I happen to sketch on a scrap piece of paper I had on my desk. One change I have tried to implement is to have more of my sketches on display. For example, the sketches I've done of the small pieces of paper I've displayed them just under my monitor to show the progression of my work, rather than have it hidden away in a sketch book.
Over these months, I have also tried to vary the mediums and styles I usually use. I've had my hand at water colours, and sketching realistic images rather than comic based as well as looked into pattern making to help improve my UI design.
A quick post of most of the sketches I have done during October and November. I didn't get to focus on body shapes as much as I wanted but I am still happy with my progress in drawing. I didn't draw as much as other months because I was spending a lot of my time working on the art for my tea project. I also included some of the images I developed for the project
Some more sketches from a number of different locations. I'm not really sure of the order of when they were drawn as I moved from place to place. Also decided to quickly photograph them instead of scanning them in, as the process took to long and this way I can show my progress more often.
I can tell I am getting slowly better (the proportions and expression have improved), but I have a long way to go before I can start using my own art. I think I want to focus on body shapes and poses over the next couple of months. See if I can get to a stage where I can attach the heads I've drawn so far on to bodies.
