Progress diary: Rikios the Chirein, 9

Saturday, 11.6.2016

Let’s just say I am infuriated to hell because of my mom’s phone. When a simple turning the app off requires installing the factory version…. Argh! Anyhow, with hopes of relaxing with the fifth day of drawing scales, I started to work.

Then I noticed that the scales have been shrinking again………

With more infuration that I like to have, I erased and redrew some. This shall continue on another day, for kriff’s sake! I’m done for today! And I still need to start painting that one character…

Scales once again. Fourth day in a row. And for a change, a headache from the morning. I hate it.

Oh well, I either exhausted my frustration on SWTOR since I kept losing connection. Then it completely lagged and I had to restart my laptop, which of course thought that it would be appropriate to waste my time on updates which could easily be installed at any other time. Anyhow, today drawing scales felt relaxing. And I can see real progress today.

This is how far I got. I noticed that I was nearing the edge of the leg, and I decided to finish there. When compared to when I last did the scales before starting this drawing streak, I have progressed. When you just do it daily, you get there eventually, that I sure have seen with my writing streaks. 🙂

Third day of the streak! To be honest, it was today when I noticed the shrinking the scales. Yet before noticing that I continued them a little bit.

This far.

Well, when you must erase, you must erase. And I erased a lot.

And it ain’t like I did much after that. It was a pain to start making scales of the right size, and it became a fairly big source of frustration to me, in cotrast to the previous feeling of being relaxed when making  these. You can imagine that I did not want to continue this much.

The second day of my drawing streak. Some progress, but I also drew a character for my Star Wars fanfiction, Exceptional Jedi, since a friend of mine has a new story and the first three commenters would get their character to her story. Only when I had finished with the outlines I raelized that I could have made a progress diary of that character too. Well, too bad. I guess I’ll just try making a speedpaint of her or something.

But now that I look at this, I can see that the scales have shrunk for no reason. It doesn’t look good. I guess I have to erase a lot of stuff now…

It’s been a while since I last drew Rikios. The test week ate up all my time and strength, but now that my summer holiday has begun, I am now going to start a drawing streak of Rikios so that I can finish her during this two-month holiday. This marks day 1.

Not much, though. I did not draw for very long, barely half an hour I’d say. I started drawing since I was having a chat on Steam and had nothing else to do meanwhile I waited for the replies.

Slowly but steadily the scales are spreading… 🙂
