What I’ve been up to this past week!

So it’s been some time since I’ve updated, mostly because I’ve been spinning wheels on what to work on, or jumping from project to project and not really getting anything done. I have a big project that I’d like to do just to see if I can, but I constantly worry that I’m too flaky to get it done. Regardless, I’m starting it, and hopefully if I can stay motivated, someday I’ll finish it!

As the start of this project I’ve decided to draw something/someone I’ve never drawn before, which is the depiction of a Trogg from World of Warcraft. I’ve been working on Oggleflint… and he is really, really ugly. I sort of love it, because I tend not to spend time drawing ugly things (barring that negative self-talk, that inner critic that tells me all of my drawings are ugly anyway!).

Here are the sketches and studies I have so far, and I’m working on the line-art, trying out a new program and a new technique, seeing how they work for me. I think this is the first project I’ve gotten really excited about in a while, so that’s actually pretty fun! I’d like to expand upon this and draw all of the bosses in Ragefire Chasm as a challenge, though I might get sick of that neon orange color scheme by the time I’m done!

Aside from this, my video game escapades, I’ve managed to defeat the Cyberdemon (Protip: Shoot it until it dies!) and also checked off another one of my end-of-expansion to-do list items, by getting the Awakened title before it goes away. All I had left was Tol Dagor, and I tell you what… I hate that place. Nothing boils my blood more in a video game than being stuck in combat forever with something you can’t even see because you managed to aggro it through a wall or floor.

The Southern Book Club's Guide to Slaying Vampires

I also finished reading “The Southern Book Club’s Guide to Slaying Vampires” by Grady Hendrix in my quest to do Popsugar’s 2020 reading challenge and I loved it. I also hated it. It was one of those books that’s gonna stay with me for a while, I think… sort of like any decent horror movie.

What have you guys been up to this week? Anything cool?
