Pick a hobby. Any hobby.

I am quite certain there is at least one anime where the characters’ entire lives revolve around that hobby.

Simplifying is hard.
Jon is made up primarily of ovals, which I decided to use as a base for the baggy parts of his clothes. And I think that mane of his gives him a distinctive enough silhouette. Also I guess in general I go with short and wide shapes when drawing him e.g. his eyes, torso, and nose. Good exercise in terms of getting me to think more about their designs on the basic level.

Me: I should get plenty of sleep so I can be up early and write lots tomorrow.

Brain: OR YOU CAN STAY AWAKE AND WRITE NONSENSICAL RUBBISH TONIGHT INSTEAD.

Me: I don’t think I want to do that.

Brain: TOO BAD I MAN THIS SHIP NO SLEEP FOR YOU SO HOW ABOUT IN THE NEXT CHAPTER UNICORNS FOR NO REASON.

The sequel: 

Brain: HOW CAN YOU SLEEP NOW WHEN THERE ARE SO MANY TV TROPES PAGES YOU HAVEN’T READ YET?

I spent the morning putting in a comma and the afternoon removing it.

Gustave Flaubert

Yeah, well I spent 8 years cutting scenes and concepts out of my novel and 6 months putting half of them back in.

(Really though, I do love that quote.)

“This outfit sorely lacks storage options.”
Another Riahline doodle.
I drew a scene I wrote again. In the very first draft of my novel there was a section where the characters have to infiltrate a swank event. GUESS WHAT I PUT BACK IN!
I think I really like drawing tomboys in pretty dresses.
Scratch that, I just really like drawing this character’s angry face.

I’ve spackled the plot hole satisfactorily for now, but I think I need to take a break for a while to do some research.

So there may be the occasional gushing post where I go on about something fascinating I learned about apothecaries or something.
