The hat has begun! The scalloped edge snapped my circulars so I’m back to my DPNs. #knitting #crafts #diy

It’s important to step away and evaluate every so often.
Needed less control and more panic but still keep the original timing.
I have two more cycles to do with different characters. I think I’ll keep posting roughs up here. They’re a blast!
WIP - Lanky dude runnin’.
this is way too much fun.
This morning’s sketch prompt was “Draw a historical figure in modern day clothing”. I went with Marie Antoinette.
Swatchin’ for my next project. A fair isle hat with this pretty rust-orange shibui yarn. Now I just have to wait for the correct size needles to show up in the mail.
So I recently received my Baron Fig sketchbook after funding the kickstarter and it inspired me to think about how I use my sketchbooks. There’s a lot of pressure out there to make beautiful sketches. It’s almost impossible not to see other people’s work and compare yourself to them (even if it is on a subconscious level). Especially with the internet and everyone sharing what they do all the time. It becomes difficult to separate myself from the idea that perfect drawings are the ultimate goal.
I’m certainly not saying that beautiful drawings aren’t a good goal to have, but personally I think the pressure I put on myself is starting to hold me back a bit. I only draw what I’m comfortable drawing and that isn’t a good way to grow. That’s why I really want to push this latest sketchbook of mine to be more about exploration and idea generation. I want to fill up pages with doodles and notes and whatever else I feel like. I want it to be a springboard for projects and not just the end goal.
Anyways, just some thoughts I figured that might be a good thing to have written down somewhere as a reminder.
Rugby sketches. This sport is for crazy people.
So I had done a bipedal walk cycle or 2… (or 3 or 4 or 5) But I had never actually done a quadrupedal cycle of any kind. So when our monthly animation jam came around and the theme was ‘Try Something New’ I figured I’d take a crack at it.
Also tryin’ out a new coloring technique with the Pastel Palooza brush from Kyle T Webster.
Hurray! A prancing pony!
