2016 in Art
A break down of the art I did in 2016. A best approximation of it, anyway. Went off of when I scanned it in because I had no other way to figure out when I actually drew it.
This excludes any critical book scenes.
The spike in art is because I started carrying around my sketch notebook on my daily train ride. I tried to keep up with it but I stopped when I water spilt on the sketchbook. Nothing was damaged too bad but I lost the motivation.
Most of the artwork for the rages found here was done during this period.
So there we go. Kind of interesting what months were popular drawing months and which ones were dead. I'm actually pleased with how much art I did. I'm not sure if I've already done more this year. I'm planning on doing more art recaps to trace my progress as an artist. I can definitely see some vague form of improvement over 2016. I think. I have no idea at this point. I feel like I'm able to get my point across more effectively in this form now than a few years ago, though.
Writing is still definitely my stronger art form, no doubt about that...
The Wonders of Wonderdraft: Waseth and Karawu
As I indicated in my previous Wonderdraft post, I planned on continuing to make maps. And so I have. I’ve made maps for two more cities featured in my books: Waseth of Magaya and Karawu of Wolfen.
The Wonders of Wonderdraft: Varpesh and Shizar
I've begun to make region maps using Wonderdraft. I started with Varpesh, which I was pleased with, and then did Shizar, which I was less pleased with. I'm excited to keep trying it out.
