I came across a really nice watercolor by fashion artist Alexander Roshchin on tumblr—what great handling of the paint! Gee whiz. Meanwhile I've put brighter bulbs in the lamps on my drawing table (40 watts! : o), and I'm going to blame those for the fact that I went a little darker than I'd realized with the blue watercolor on today's page and it got a little chunky; like, the blue on pages 76 and 80 is smoother and less distracting because it is painted lighter on the paper. Subtle, subtle...gotta remember that. : P The main thing I was trying to focus on today was keeping a sense of the light sourcing, which I had definitely gotten pretty far away from in yesterday's page, which I think is why I ended up getting frustrated and throwing paint on it (very non-subtle, but fun ; ).

I figured out a way to waste less time during non-A* parts of my day today, so maybe if I can stay disciplined then I can keep my comicking schedule a little less crazy, that would be nice. : )

Hm but to do that I probably shouldn't waste time watching semi-random YouTube videos like We Play Doom With John Romero, which might be interesting if you're a PC game dinosaur like me. : P
