Gathering dust November 18, 2011

Been rather quiet around here of late.  The short story is that real life has gotten in the way of updates – and content to update with.  New house and new baby eat up a lot of free time, and up until yesterday, I’d only done one new drawing in perhaps the last six months.  As it is, including yesterday’s efforts that number’s only two, though I’m hoping yesterday’s work will help springboard more sketching.

Reading some excellent art reference books lately have inspired me to really try to improve my art, and this dearth of drawing this year have made me decide to forego polish for substance, so I did a quick, loose practice sketch yesterday:

The character is Hawkeye from Seiken Densetsu 3, a game that followed Secret of Mana for the Super Nintendo in Japan that was never released here.

As this type of drawing can be done in the baby’s very brief daytime naps, and given what I consider the success of this sketch, I’m hoping to start doing more of these.  It’s quite refreshing not needing to make every stroke perfect.

As for other productivity over the past several months, I am at work editing my novel Halcyon for publication hopefully next spring.  Major edits are complete and I’ve started work on the cover art while waiting for feedback from a few preliminary readers.  Don’t really have much to show for it at the moment, but the current plan is to attend a few conventions next year.

In the meantime, I have a four-month-old to take care of.
