Fox Blouse

This one ended up way more complicated than expected. The colour of the outfit was reversed initally: blue jeans and orange top with a floral pattern, but then I saw a shirt by Princess Highway that had a cool fox print, so I decided to go with that instead.

Deciding on a background took way longer than it should have and it was done in short bursts before and after work. I like to have a few WIPs  going on at once so when I get bored of one I can work on something else.

The saturation levels on my laptop screen and Cintiq are really different, so I have no idea how high saturated the colours are.

Military Jacket

I recently lucked out and happened to get an easy script to storyboard, so I haven't been working crazy hours lately. My motivation to draw is usually strongest in the morning, so I've been going in to work 30 minutes late which allows me some time to draw my own stuff.

Doomed From The Start

Well, it's been a month and I haven't taken any more photos. I'm back at work and have very little free time, so it looks like the photography hobby might be over before it really started. I don't like relying on other people, so my portait photography phase might have been doomed from the start.

It's not a total waste though, learning more about portrait photography has gotten me to think more about posing which I hope will improve my drawing. On the downside, I now look at Instagram way too much.
