What's uuuuup? I'm back! I feel like I haven't written an entry in a long time... although it's been only one week. And while a week it's not really a long period, at the same time it's longer than my usual time. Regularly, each week I post two entries for this blog; however, last week I decided I would scale it down to just one written entry (per week). The key word here is "written": I'm still posting two times weekly... the difference is that from now on one of those two posts will be a drawing. A sketch to be more precise.
Why am I doing this? I wanted to switch things around (what a surprise, that's what I always do). I enjoy writing, you might have noticed, but I also love drawing (well, that's pretty obvious, right?). However, unlike my writing, I don't deliver artwork at a weekly rate, at least not all the time. Substituting one of the written entries by a sketch every week, will allow me to keep writing what's inside my head while at the same time sharing what's behind my artwork. What I like about rough sketches or sketches in general, is how much they can tell about the artist who did them. Every artist has their own personal style, and a rough sketch is a great example of that, a very raw expression of your feelings and ideas.
Now, wouldn't be better to keep writing two entries per week and also do one or two weekly sketches? Oh, yes, that would be great, but I won't lie: my available time, between projects and side projects (not to mention personal life) is not really much to spare. But hey, all we can do is try to take advantage of time as much as possible. Oh, Father Time, my eternal nemesis! :)
So, how does it work? Am I going to post a sketch with a description about it? Nope, I'm going to keep it simple and just post a sketch, nothing else. The goal here is to be a little more productive, so I'm going to make use of the time that otherwise would be spent writing... by sketching. Hopefully this will keep these weekly posts even more dynamic. Of course, you can bet that I'll keep spicing and shuffling things around my blog in the future, as I do with my artwork. When the time is right, I actually want to start doing vlogs (video blogs) about my work. I like the idea... however, I don't want to stop writing. Ah, lot of projects, not enough time... Father Time strikes again!
As I mentioned, my intention is to keep things simple. So, it will go down like this: at the beginning of every week I'll be posting a written entry (like this one); then, as the weekend gets closer, I'll post a sketch based on a model with whom I've done or I'll be doing a collaboration artwork as well. The model for the first sketch is the beautiful Kendra Lust, who has been featured in my artwork many times (thank you Kendra!). By the way, the weekly sketch won't have any description whatsoever (other than the title), but you are more than welcome to leave your comments.
Last but not least, on a side note regarding sketches, I want to mention my Patreon again. If you'd like to see more of this kind of work, my patrons on the $2 tier are able to check out sketches on which I based my final artwork. Just visit my Patreon profile by clicking here for more details. For now, stay tuned, this week's sketch will be posted this weekend. Thank you again for your support, my artwork and I appreciate it! See you next time!
Pin-up artist by day… and also by night. Well, mostly by night, because night time is my favorite time to paint.
