In this post:
- I got really tired, then got slightly less tired over time.
This week, I have drawn:
- Just a little texturing on January 3, because I'm two days in to three all-day meetings and exhausted.
- Nothing on January 4, because I'm so tired.
- Nothing on January 5, because I'm still so tired.
- I did some texturing on January 6, to ramp up slowly.
- I did a little bit of texturing on January 7. I should start setting aside specific times for this stuff, so I don't let it go late and try to do things sleepy.
- Ramped back up with texturing a little, shortly after January 8. Now that I look over the sheet again (yep, so little done that this is still the first texturing sheet), I am getting a sense of improvements and picking up techniques, but I don't know, I feel like I'm probably improving overall, but maybe randomly doing a little worse with some specific textures. I should maybe look into finding other resources that go into more detail with this stuff, because at this point I'm kind of saying stuff like "okay, stippling seems to generally work" and basically trying out different ways to make Fibonacci spirals emerge, on account of the various fruits and scales I chose to texture.
- I did some more texturing on January 9. I decided to put little circled numbers indicating the order I mostly did these in, because I figured this is visually interesting enough that it could be a good accompaniment to a post, even if some of the early attempts fail to really resemble what they're supposed to be. The circled numbers are necessary because I don't naturally fill in an empty sheet of paper in an order that makes sense to other people. (I once did a math problem incorrectly, with work that snaked all over the page in a way that completely concealed the connections unless you're me. When I found the mistake, I propagated the changes "forward", making corrections all over the sheet. Judging from other people's reactions, it was a little disorienting to watch.)
Next week, the entry had better be better, eesh.
