Those of you who are new to my Deviant Art account and my Tumblr blog now know that I am middle-aged, and work hard on an automotive assembly line to pay the rent and such.
I really enjoy drawing, despite how tough it gets sometimes, and I need something besides TV and YouTube for my last years to come. I have COPD, an incurable lung disease caused by smoking cigarettes for 30 years, and that abuse to myself means I get to be on oxygen and largely incapable of much physical activity in my final years, which are fast approaching.
SO, 2 years ago, my love of My Little Pony and all the amazing artists I've met encouraged me to really try to learn art.
Seeing as I am very good at making excuses all week long to not draw, I have decided to emulate Inktober and start a daily drawing challenge for myself with a monthly theme.
This month, though a bit late to start, is the Cartoon Character Daily Draw!
Every day this January, I pledge to draw one character from the huge world of animation.
If you'd like to join in, here are some base rules:
-All genres that are animated are okay, no stop motion (Coraline, Wallace and Grommit) or fully digital (Zootopia, etc.)
-Traditional media is preferred, if you must use digital interface, stay away from textures, duplication, even layers.
-Be here to try stuff you haven't yet, even characters you don't like.
-You can draw characters from the same show, but not all month! I'm looking at my fellow Bronies here!
I plan to make the most of what I have to work with, and have fun doing it.
Remember, Good Artists are Bad Artists that didn't stop drawing!
