 "The Mythical Man Month" sums up my thoughts better than I'd ever thought possible, especially equating programming to child-like glee and fantasy.

2010-11-22 stick figure

Sometimes I lament the weight of knowledge and awareness. There was a time where I drew lots of stick figures, running and jumping around the boilerplate on my notebook.

I didn't know about doing more detailed drawings, and I didn't care. I simply had fun drawing them. Sometimes ignorance really is bliss.

While none of us can go back to true naivety (and I'm aware of the irony of these thoughts coming from one as young and inexperienced as me), it can be good to sometimes step back and remind ourselves to see the simple pleasure in things, rather than seeing them for what they're lacking.

More human shapes, less naval-gazing in the next few days.

Seconds away from becoming another "I'll just draw something lame like a swirl" night, pinky bravely steps up.

One of the things I'm consistently seeing from random sources online, is people should be 7-8 heads tall. I tried implementing that tonight; definitely need to work on getting the rest of the proportions right.

I've realized recently that I've been limited in what I attempt to draw due to one important detail - I haven't even started learning about sketching the human form.

I'm not even talking about details like proper musculature and skin tone, I mean arm-to-leg proportion and making things not look like aliens.

This is a bit of a "before" picture, a couple of progressive sketches just trying to make it "look right." This particular alien is from a planet of football players that that wear giant sweaters, apparently.

I actually had a pretty good idea for something to do tonight, and possibly the next few nites. Simply couldn't find the time, though. Hopefully the weekend will have a more clear schedule.

This is a rough approximation of me, trying to think of what to draw for the last hour. I'm just drawing a complete blank. Had fun playing a tea-selling game at game night (can't remember the name), and then some rock band, but ideas for sketches just haven't popped in my head.

Hopefully I'll come up with something better tomorrow.

No drawing tonight. Too many hours pounding on too broken code. Hopefully board game night tomorrow will inspire me to do something.

Just playing around with the airbrush. I started with a circle, and kept adding more until it "felt" right. This is the kind of thing I think I'll revisit every now and then, it feels like a nice test of progress.

Definitely another "because I felt like it" day. I had larger plans for a nifty volcano, but it got too late, too fast. Another day, perhaps.
