Weekly Progress

1/19/2020 – Progress reports

Hey, everyone! I’ve decided to change the frequency of these progress reports. I don’t think they are interesting enough to justify their daily frequency.

Right now, I’m trying some productivity hacks, so I’m able to produce more images and graphic assets this year. And since I’m at various stages of a few of my projects, I need all the productivity that I can get. Also, I need some help in deciding which projects are and aren’t important right now. For me, it’s always hard to decide which project to pursue, and which to put on hold, but I know that I can’t do everything at once.

Next week, I want to submit a second bundle of graphic assets to the Unity Asset Store. It’s been almost two years since I had done it for the first time, so I need to catch on some changes to the format of the accompanying images for the asset’s profile page, and also check out the new EULA and TOS.

My last week wasn’t very productive, but I have some new images. I decided to draw some rats to acknowledge the upcoming beginning of the Chinese New Year. This time next week, the Year of The Rat will be upon us! I’ll be drawing more of the Chinese Zodiac signs next week.

The Year of The Rat will be here in a week!

I’ll be doing this type of post every Sunday, but if I have anything interesting to say during the week, I’ll make an extra post. I don’t want this to be only a blog that documents my work. I’m thinking about doing a few tutorials and software reviews. There’s plenty of software that I like and that I think is either too underestimated or underutilized.

Thank you for reading, and see you here next week!

1/7/2020 – Progress Report

Whoa! It’s the end of the first week of this year! The thing I learned so far is that I need to become more organized and try to ignore distractions more.

I’m not satisfied how today’s picture turned out but it will motivate me to do better the next time. I wanted to draw a map with cartoony three-dimensional buildings. it didn’t work out very well so I’ll try to do a better job tomorrow. I will also try to select some appropriate color palette to get more lively and natural colors. So here’s the unsatisfactory image from today:

I have only a moment to make a short post, so here are the three images from yesterday:

1/5/2020 – Progress Report

Today I’ve cheated a little and submitted three images with silhouettes from the last year. I’m still getting back into drawing and I’m working on some sketches of animals right now. The silhouettes will be hopefully approved tomorrow.

And here are the two approved images from yesterday:

As you can see I’ve been trying different styles of vector art, and I think I’ll continue experiencing with styles to get better with vector programs and to determine which styles are the best comprise between the speed of execution and the quality of the image.

I want to try to draw some buildings and scenery in the next few days, and I think it will be interesting to try even more vectors styles while doing it.

I’ll be back tomorrow with something new.

Here are the three images from yesterday:

I just submitted two new cartoons, which should be hopefully approved tomorrow. I need to start sketching more to be able to finish these faster.

Today I submitted three files, unfortunately none of them is yet online.

Here’s the second approved image from yesterday:

Hopefully all the submitted images will be available tomorrow. And I’ll be sketching and drawing more of them. I want to try different styles so I can be more productive. The style shown here took too much time so it will be smart to diversify a bit.

1/2/2020 – Daily Progress

Like yesterday, I’ve submitted two images, however, I’ve submitted one of them after 3pm, so it hasn’t been approved yet.

Here’s the first image:

Hopefully the second image will be approved tomorrow along with two other images that I’m planning to submit.

I’m hard at work on game graphics so I’ll soon have some news about future collection of game assets.

2020 will be a HUGE success!

New Year, New Goals

This site is still under construction but I’m back!

My goal for this year is to finish several game asset collections (mainly character portraits, and animated sprites for various characters) and to do a huge chunk of work on graphics for a game on which I’ve been (on and off) collaborating for the last few years. I want to also add 500 new images into my micro-stock portfolio.

This will all require big amount of discipline but I’m up for the challenge. I have lots of new things to learn this year and I’m very excited about it all.

To achieve the goal of 500 new images, I’ll be submitting at least two images a day for the foreseeable future.

Here are my today’s pics.

Yes, these are newly exported images that I’ve created last year. Tomorrow it will be harder because I will have to finish and submit two currently half-finished images. But I’ll do it, I have no choice:) I’ll be back tomorrow.
