Repeating One Song for Hours

It’s the end of the year and Spotify graciously created a playlist of my top 100 most played songs for 2017, conveniently called “top songs for 2017.” It’s my second such playlist (2016 was jammed full of good music, some new and plenty not so new) and let me tell you, this playlist is full of songs I remember putting on repeat and just letting them play endlessly.

Sometimes a song is so freaking good, so well made, speaks so clearly to my inner being that I simply have to listen to it… over and over and over. Constantly, without stop.

Here’s a couple:

  • “Let Go – Sir Sly Remix” by RAC, Kele, MNDR
  • “Warrior” by Steve James, Lights
  • “Strong – RAC Remix” by London Grammar, RAC
  • Stranger than Earth” by Purity Ring

In other news, I painted a picture of Dianne. 🙂

Veronica the Vicious

Feels good to have another character from the story fleshed out and rendered.  Veronica is one of Red’s old teammates and a main antagonist in the story.
She stands at the forefront of most of the opposition Red experiences at the academy and the two loathe each other deeply.

It’s nice to have a face to the description of the character and it’s already starting to pull ideas out of my head story wise.
Might have to continue moving forward with some of the other characters and see what happens.

I keep doing what I say I won’t do… I should either stop saying what I won’t do or start saying I won’t become a great Concept Artist and make Trillions of dollars.  Life is silly.

I drew today.  🙂

A quick sketch to allow me to get in the groove…  Exploring some citizens, clothing, and my personal favorite… Vorinns.

I ended up sketching this really small, so the linework isn’t very crisp, but it’s nice to just explore and have fun for an hour and feel like I accomplished a lot.  🙂

Drawing Legs Bring Tears to my Eyes

I know it’s a perspective issue, but I perceive it to be frustrating… drawing legs in perspective, the light from my WACOM reflects tears of frustration.  I must change my perspective.  I raise my shaking fist toward the sky.

Hashtag angry face.
I must consume sustenance.

Rarely said, but I mean it so much, these two days off are going to be amazing!
