At one time 2021 for me was a long way into the future. That is not the situation now.
Every year we say good-bye to the previous year. And yes the year 2020 sucked. We are still in the same time flow so we can’t expect the “suckiness” to magically go away. Unfortunately a day on a calendar means nothing. Possibly I/we may look back on 2020/21 with fondness (in about 20 years).
Anyway, enough about the so-called New Year, nothing has changed — except my mindless doodles. 😉
Back to it and what I did this past week?
I carried on, that’s what I did. The past few weeks have been all about “mindless doodling” and then digitally colourizing them. However, as of now, I am in the process of “exploiting me”. Feel free to check out a previous post about how “I exploit me”.
Over the past few weeks I have been mindlessly doodling away because I ran out of inspirational creative motivation. Can I actually say those three words in a row and make sense? Heck, who knows, does it matter, makes sense to me.
I have fallen back into my habit of exploiting myself. Yep, that’s right the mindless doodles are no longer “mindless”. I’m thinking while supposedly mindlessly doodling. I am creating with a purpose. Fortunately I don’t really know what that purpose is. I guess it’s mainly to experiment with digital colourization and to train myself to make digital art a bigger part of my repertoire.
Of course once I have fully exploited myself I will most likely end up suffering from lost “inspirational creative motivation” — again!
Images of the week
Okay, so it’s that time of the year, you know, the week in-between Christmas and New Years. What you think you will get done and what does get done are two different things.
While writing this post I thought for sure I would have two finished digital paintings, nope!
Instead I have two finished ink and graphite renders ready for digital colourization. I managed to start the colourization process but alas did not finish them in time. Look for the finished results next week.
Progress thus far
The following image is something I started this past week and will render and colourize for next week along with the above two images – (maybe)?
And as always (almost) the header image for this post is included below for email subscribers.
