Unfortunately, this will be my last posting for this year’s Challenge. I’m kinda disappointed with myself for putting out this small a number of pictures. Part of the reason was scheduling, and part of it was me just not feeling like drawing during parts of the month. It was not a lack of creativity, as I had months before this year’s Challenge to whip out more than enough characters (and more characters as the month moved on).

But, that doesn’t mean that this year’s challenge wasn’t worth the effort. The month’s concentrtated push to create all these characters showed me where my strongths and weaknesses are as an artist. Parts of the illustrations I did add this year was an improvement over last year’s efforts. One thing that helped me was having the time to sketch out and expand on each character I developed. This is a common practice; the artist doesn’t just settle for just one solution to a problem, but looking at a character from a number of angles (situations, interactions with other characters, etc.).

Thus, I’m glad to have been part of this Challenge this year. See you guys next year!

Hi Gang!! Here I am for my third go around with this art challenge. I have high hopes to finish with at least 30 new characters this year. Last year"s schedule was hectic for me, so I only did 16 drawings. And while that number doesn't count it here; it does mean I already have a dozen characters waiting in the wings, simply because I didn't have the time to draw them out. Onward and upward!!! There seems to be a few new things happening this year: there are a lot of people who started early, and a lot of them are damn good. This latter should encourage all of us to churn out better characters and art as the challenge wears on. Good luck to us all.
