Today is the last day of Nano, and unless I manage to write 15K words by midnight, and I ain’t even going to try, I have failed miserably. It doesn’t matter, I suppose, I have gained something out of it and will come back to Sugar Ache, when my mind’s in it. Besides, I have been writing. Well, more like editing… endlessly, but I did manage to get the synopsis written and sent out, and fixed the query letter (Thanks to my lovely friends who helped). So there, not all for loss.
In any case, congratulations to all those who made (will make it) to 50K words by end of November. You are all amazing.
On the art side, I have been very productive. I started three projects for my friends, hopefully I’ll get them finished by Christmas. In addition, I drew two more for the Sketch Club challenges. No, I have not abandoned Procreate. It’s my first love and I am STILL more comfortable drawing on it. I use it for the other three projects 🙂
Anime Challenge: Look Out, Behind You!
I have attempted anime before, but never successful with it. I wanted to do Battle Angel Alita for the challenge, which is my favourite of all time, but she was too hard! So I did Deunan from Appleseed instead. This one took ages to do, that’s why I missed the deadline, ha. Never mind. I have wanted to draw her for ages. Although I did change the details so she looks more futuristic and… less charming :p

Ice Challenge: Ice Princess
The one I submitted was a tad of a lazy job, especially the background. But by that time, I was already exhausted from doing the face and the eyes, and I know I won’t have time to draw today, wanted to get it in before I miss it. But I touched her up this morning, put on the proper hoodie, applied more softness to the edges, and added the falling snow. I like her better now.

Anyway, sorry if this is boring you. I am just trying to practice, practice, practice, so I can get better at this. My beautiful friends at Sketch Club have been very supportive and encouraging to me. I learn so much from them. They’re the best.
Thanks for the visit, peeps. Take care. Keep creating. Gosh, I can’t believe Christmas is just around the corner!!
