Sorry it’s been a couple weeks since I posted! I actually wanted to start back with anatomy practice a week ago, but unfortunately I let other things get in the way. I plan on doing some kind of drawing practice today though.
My husband discovered a program called Spine 2D recently. It is an animation program that helps give 2D drawings a 3D look as well as movement. It’s actually pretty cool, and I was quite impressed with it. One of the games that uses Spine 2D for the characters is Darkest Dungeon. You can use this program for any style of art though. In one of their tutorials they even suggested using it for an opening page for an app, which I thought was pretty awesome.
I’ll be posting my progress with Spine 2D on here, so check back soon to see how it’s going.
Sorry I haven’t posted in a week or more! This last week was a little crazy with dentist appointments, etc, and this coming week will be a little busier than usual, plus I’m trying to get some purging done around the house, but I plan on officially getting back into art next Monday, which is February 12.
I recently found out about a new app called Munzee. It’s kind of like geocaching, but you don’t leave actual treasures, you scan little bar codes that you find. There are also virtual Munzees, which you can collect if you drive close enough to the location. The virtual part of it reminds me of Pokemon Go. I’ve been using Munzee for a few days now, collecting virtual Munzees, but two days ago I got my first physical (barcode) Munzee! It was so cool. I’ll probably do a blog post about Munzee soon.
I have finally completed and uploaded the LAST part of my Essential Oil Digital Image Set, and this one is Melaleuca! I really love Melaleuca because I grew up with it in our house, because my parents loved it, and also worked with the company Melaleuca. The smell of melaleuca oil is really nostalgic to me. I wish I had every Melaleuca product right now. 🙂
Some of the images in this set are based off Melaleuca products, such as the “gold bar” soap, and the “melagel” first aid ointment.
Since I completed my essential oil image series, I will be moving on to improving my human anatomy drawing skills, and working on character design. I’ll probably also work on backgrounds, and maybe do some hand-lettering projects. I’ll be posting sketches, even though I’m technically learning, but I think it’ll be fun to watch my progress. 🙂
Have a great day, and check back again soon for updates!
