It's 2016... already...

Cue the baffled sound I make when I take a look at the date of my last blog post and it says July 7th, 2015. Eep. What was that about writing regular blog posts again?

But nevermind, we shall strive to do better! 

In the period of time between my last post and this point in time, I've been employed, turned 27 and eaten at least my weight's worth in rose flavoured Turkish Delights (I regret nothing). The air is now cold after a very mild Christmas and I am on holiday for a week. 

I'd like to kick off 2016 with a collection of drawings. I don't usually make resolutions but I would like to  (a) learn a new skill, as usual, and (b) keep improving  upon my digital painting and designing. I'm also going to actively date everything I've made so I can cringe at my past work AND know how long ago I made it. Bonus. 

I first attempted to do a painting of Yennefer of 'The Witcher' in a pretty awkward pose.

Didn't work out and I quickly gave up. I then moved on to another gaming franchise and made a portrait of everyone's favourite egg, Solas, from Dragon Age: Inquisition. Also included, a fancy process gif! 

I also painted a pretty nightmarish scenario - the deep sea fascinates and scares me in equal measure. 

And finally, wrapping it up with a study of Hughes Merle's 'Mary Magdalene in The Cave'. Studies are hard to do, and I guess that's why I should do them. I'm definitely going to aim to do more. 

And that's the update from 2016! I'm excited to see what's next.
