I'm trying to get into the habit of doing at least a sketch a day. Did this on lunch break at work around 10-15 mins. This came out after playing around with a large single flat brush. This look was never intentional. I love happy accidents! Done using my tablet and photoshop. More sketches to come!

Recent works as of the moment.

These are some new ones I did. Not so much progress, I know. I think I've wasted so much time wandering around aimlessly instead of seriously drawing, painting, and studying everyday. Oh, well. Will definitely do that from now on.

First try.

Here I'm posting my first ever character and environment design studies. Did these for a 3D animation project in my previous company way back 2009. This was also the first time I used a pen tablet. Really felt awkward at first but got the hang of it. I used to be proud of these. But now? It makes me cringe. Haha! By the way, I used Gimp.

At last I'm starting to post!

Hi everyone!

So here's my's been sitting here for a long while with nothing happening. Posting and updating myself online wasn't really my thing but I'll slowly try to change that. I'll be posting different stuff and probably talk a little. This way, I'll be forced to be more productive and achieve something. I'm still learning and want to learn even more. As what my heroes say, there's no magic -  it's all about hard work, patience and PRACTICE, PRACTICE, PRACTICE! 

So, I'm hoping that this online journal thing will show my progress or something. And hopefully might help anyone out there.

And yeah, if you're wondering why the heck of a blog name, I was inspired by this quote from Eleanor Roosevelt:

     "Do one thing everyday that scares you."

So now, how is it related to drawing or painting? Well, you don't really improve on something if you keep avoiding it. You'll be stuck in the same place if you keep doing what you always do. So if you're afraid of drawing anatomy, draw it! If you're afraid of doing environments because you suck at drawing perspective, go research and draw it! And the list could go on and on.. It's really about developing and improving your weak spots and refining your art skills. 'Coz, if you won't, you'll never be good at it. Mastery takes repetition. That's the key.

But hey, you're not alone on this, most artists are guilty of this, too. Like me. Yes, especially me. Haha. That's why I have this blog. But things should change from this day on or else i'll be doomed forever.. So, my friend, I tell you, gear yourself up, too, and just do it! Draw the things that scare you. Because everything in here are the things that I'm scared of (though probably not all), and just wanted to share it with you. 

So there..

Let's get this rolling before the world ends!
