A Year of Gesture Drawing: 001/365 by TommyOliverDraws
A Year of Gesture Drawing: 001/365
I hate gesture drawing.

I hate making a bad drawing, and gesture drawing is essentially nothing but that.

I've also never gotten anything out of gesture drawing, as it goes by too fast for me to really retain anything.

Regardless, people swear by the exercise. People who are better at drawing the figure than I am

So for the next year, I'll be doing at least 10 minutes of gesture drawing every day, starting with 1 minute sketches, and moving on to 30 second drawings when I hit day 100, or if I get fast enough to require it. Whatever comes first.

I'll be moving the previous day to scraps / stash when I upload the new one so my gallery doesn't get overflowed with garbage, I just need to do this publicly or I won't follow through.

Oh, and sorry for the literally shittiest drawings ever made. Maybe they'll get better.
Thanks to everyone who sent me birthday wishes Saturday. I really appreciate it! <3

Reading or Dramatic Readings? 

702 deviants said I prefer reading things myself.
479 deviants said Would much rather listen to a dramatic reading.
No promises, but I've been considering it.

Videos are losing a bit of their luster for me now. Not that I've ever really loved it, but its becoming harder and harder lately.

I'm thinking I might switch gears and try to focus more on art and writing again, see if I can get some momentum going with that so I can slowly wean off making videos and shift over to getting interest back in my creative skills, rather than my critical ones.

Who knows, maybe I can get patrons for my artwork and start tabling at cons?

Won't know if you don't try...
