Since I finished my novel, I really have lost all sense of direction. I don't know what to do with myself! I've spent two weekends watching TV. TV, people! It is very nice to loll around the house and just do whatever I feel like. I'm really amazed how weighty self-discipline can be. I've messed with my sewing, sculpey, and acrylic paint. Although I'm "creatively recharging", I find myself idling about creating things.
These are some sketches that I colored in Photoshop. An experiment; I'm wanting to move away from my heavy dependancy on lines and work on shading (huzzah chiaroscuro!) I had fun with this, and took my time. These are Metuo and Glaeba from my favorite series, Daemon Soul, the first book of which will be the next novel project I attack. However, I told myself I cannot write or officially world-build until winter, or thereabouts. I have 2 short stories in mind I wanna get out, and with college about to start up again, it's a good idea not to start a big project. Metuo turned out beautifully in this, color-wise, but his pose is a little odd. I wanted him to look like he'd just landed and was preparing to take off again. Oh well. It was fun.
