May has been a busy month. I've been keeping myself busy during this time, using different tactics to motivate myself to create, learn, and improve. At the beginning of the month I was feeling particularly low and unmotivated, though my mood has since improved and I have a few goals and tasks to focus on in the coming months.
How are all of you dealing/coping/doing? What are your tricks, if any, to get yourself to focus?
I've had to remind myself that naps are okay, if I need to reset. I'm learning to not push myself too hard when what I really need is some rest.
APRIL'S ART RAFFLE
My mother loves flowers and I enjoy drawing them, so I combined the two and created an image/card featuring some of her favourites. I know a lot about different types of flowers, all thanks to my mom.
THE ROSE UMBRELLA
In an ancient telling, however, it is said The Rose Umbrella is a demon that feeds on the souls of the forgotten dead. As she harvests the souls it is said she has no need for blood... and so the roses fall as she makes her away across the fields of battle. That last one couldn't be true though, right?
Back at the beginning of the month, I announced I was doingsomething special for all supporters donating throughout the month of May. For anyone buying me a ko-fi, I would create a sketch of a character or person of their choosing.
The first sketch, requested by "Somebody" who donated anonymously, and they requested Harry Dresden from the tv series The Dresden Files (based on the novel series of the same name, by Jim Butcher). I tried to capture the spirit of the character, who carries around a staff disguised as a hockey stick, and is portrayed by Paul Blackthorne.
What do you think? Did I capture his likeness enough?
