I've had some wrist problems over the last weeks so my drawing time has been severely cut back. It's almost back to perfect health now though, and I've learned some really important lessons about ergonomics in the process... I've also starting messing around a bit with filters and effects in Photoshop.

Here are som speeds from over summer, when I was working out methods of faster production because I had to spend a lot of my time at work. I've selected the two strongest sets.
I found that working on 4 or so pictures on the same canvas at the same time allowed me to very quickly come up with better compositions, design elements and color schemes. Maybe if I have time I'll render some of these up because there are a few of them I'm pleased with.

I'm trying to find a process that lets me come up with effective designs quickly. Here's one that Sinix and Feng Zhu recommend in their videos. First I just started with some random shapes. Well, not completely random there's a little bit of design here.
Then I selected the ones I thought had the most potential.
I changed some around a bit and blocked in some values. Just trying to see what I could come up with. Gradually they loosened up and became less conservative.
Here's another quick round I started today but now I have to go to work.
I'll continue experimenting with this process this week I think.

I haven't updated in awhile because I haven't drawn that much. I've had less time for my creative pursuits since I started working. Music practice takes up most of my freetime and I only usually have an hour or so a day I can devote to practicing drawing. I haven't produced much I've felt like uploading, but this master study is turning out better than I anticipated so I'll keep working on that.
