About three weeks ago, I bought my first drawing pens and started my first ink drawings. You can find the post for the drawings here. I drew two cartoon characters, the first one was a zombie kid named Dead Ed who wears a tuxedo. I thought it'd be fun to draw him again. He seems like a very cool idea for a recurring character in my drawings.

I may do more Cuphead fan art in the future when I feel like it.

This is fan art based on Cuphead, an indie 2D shooter that's not even out yet. I can't wait to play it when it comes out. Trailer below.

If you don't already know, I have a 2d platformer indie game project going on and I'm just about getting a big portion of the main levels finished. Above is concept art I drew for the planned first boss of the game. It should help me visualize how to translate an idea in my head into the computer.
His name is Kranky.

These two girls are based off a couple of videos by a YouTube channel called "Draw So Cute".
Ever since I stumbled upon a half hour "How to Draw Cartoon Eyes" tutorial on YouTube last Saturday, I've suddenly wanted to seek more because of their power to teach new skills in a short span of time. Today, I've decided to watch "How to Draw Lips and Mouths" by Draw with Jazza. I didn't have space to practice drawing all the mouths that were presented in the limited paper area but I still drew more ideas than I would usually do. Some of the mouths are not quite right whereas others are actually pretty decent.

Whoops! I was so busy with everything I did today that I totally forgot that I was supposed to upload my drawings for the day. I did do some drawing today, I just forgot to scan it for upload. I can spend about 15 minutes doing that but it's just about bedtime and I'm really sleepy. I'll postpone this for tomorrow morning.

I've been working on an indie-game project since October of 2015. It is a 2D Platformer inspired by the classic Crash Bandicoot games. Not very original? Well, I assure you that there is a lot of originality within it and it will also be fun to play regardless. You can follow the game at GameJolt.com here: http://gamejolt.com/games/kzzzzzzzzt/166162
I also post updates on the game's developer log here: http://gamejolt.com/dashboard/games/166162/devlog
Something that I've always dreamed of since I was a kid was to become a cartoonist. Back then, it was a bit of a vague dream. I did live a very distracted life back then. My entire life and motivations revolved mainly around video games, and so I never actually started a deep habit of drawing but I did occasionally doodle cartoons on paper and textbooks but I never fully addressed the deep emotional baggage and distraction that was holding me back from beginning.
I'm back to taking lessons from Barrington Barber's book "The Fundamentals of Drawing". This drawing is from a lesson detailing simple still-life composition. I think I did a good job with the fruit but the bowl feels slightly off. Trying to draw close-to-perfect curves and lines (without rulers) is generally almost impossible, at least for beginners like me.

This was drawn after an intense half-hour meditation session where I began questioning my life and daily habits. It was quite difficult and disturbing. Drawing something to try to communicate it almost felt natural to me, like wanting to eat food when you're hungry.

I wasn't sure of what I wanted to draw today. In fact, I ended up deciding that this isn't exactly a day where I draw something creative. So instead I took out my drawing tutorial book again and continued where I left off. I'm at the second chapter now where I'm introduced into Objects and Still Life Drawing. Here's a fir-cone and a wine glass that the book (referenced below) asked me to draw. They're nowhere as good the book examples but they're good for an amateur.

I just met the last page of my current sketchbook and I usually add "The End" drawings unto every last page of my sketchbooks because I want to. I also name every new sketchbook I begin drawing on by drawing "Sketchbook <Name>" on the first page of every sketchbook. I've named my newest sketchbook "Sketchbook Time".
To celebrate, I took out all my previous sketchbooks to get a bit of perspective to how far I've gone and it's quite satisfying for me to look at them and see that growth is happening and my skills are indeed improving. Now, it's only been a year since I first started drawing in sketcbooks and it's only been a couple of months since I started drawing consistently on a daily basis. It feels like the better I get, the easier it also is for me to build momentum and draw with less effort.
