#The100DayProject: Day 28 to Day 45-Recap

Being four weeks into the project I still wasn’t ready to say goodbye to the “girlie” colors and the loose subjects I illustrated. I ended the fourth week with my first (and up to now last) speedpaint video of a ProCreate drawing. If you’re curious you can still watch it here.

I started to feel drained and anxious around that time, so I decided to try and turn mit mental health issues into illustrations. A lot of the illustrations I posted during this time frame are reworks of older stuff I’ve done. Looking back some of them they look a bit too bubbly for my taste, but you live and you learn, right?

Speaking of learning: I tried to create my first animation in ProCreate on the Little Misfortune-fanart I did for Killmonday Games (my favorite game devs and creative heroes!). I have a tiny bit of experience with animating in Photoshop, but not nearly enough – Animation is something I really want to dive into in the future.

Then #Mermay came along and I decided to participate by posting a mermaid illustration every Sunday. I know that a lot of people are super enthusiatic about drawing mermaids, but I don’t really enjoy drawing them. I like the fact that they don’t have legs and feet (because I struggled to draw those at that time), but other than that I’m not really into mermaids.

Six weeks into the 100 day challenge I decided to take a break from drawing people and turned to illustrating more objects and environments. And then something truly magical happened: I started to become interested in textures – and I ditched the idea of super polished art. This set the tone for what was about to come: Some of my favorite illustrations I did during the whole project.
