365 Day Project: 6

What a long night but I wanted to post this before collapsing in bed. I wanted to try to catch a unique angle of the bridge. I’m not too happy with this but I accept it as it was something new for me. I wish the town I lived in had just a bit more. I would kill for some decent graffiti. Maybe some food photography would help get me out of the funk. What do people take pictures of with their phones these days? I wanted to try my hand at choosing a monochrome palette for my color scheme. The hex codes are listed below from left to right. Have a great night everyone.

Productive 1st Week

I can’t begin to say how proud of myself that I am with the first week of the year. Unfortunately, I may not be able to keep to the schedule today due to outside obligations. This morning, I got up early and read the book that the kindred is covering for the book club meeting. Heroes of Asgard is a short book and easy read because I’ve heard these stories and variations from different sources. The Kindred is also supporting each other in their healthy choice of lifestyle. I’ve already been working with Weight Watchers and decided to participate to help lose the pesky 20lbs that just can’t be dropped. For this week I’ve participated in and accomplished the necessary goals with the kindred and learning journey not to mention my own personal (not daily) study of the Havamal. Oh, I even did my time on the treadmill.

The 365-Day project has been awesome and shitty all at the same time. I can take an awesome picture one minute and WTH was that photo the next. The Skillshare class helped a great deal and I have a couple more that I want to watch. The best part is that they are all short and cut right to the chase so I can learn, try, and grow through a swift transition. Trying to remember all the tips and tricks is what I need to try harder at. Maybe making my own notes or flashcards to carry will help like little-reminding nods. I think my favorite photo is from day 4. The puddle experiment was scary to try but I’m glad I did. I’m glad I stepped out of the car. I have a horrible feeling that today’s photo won’t be all that great because of the events I have happening today.

The short story that I wrote made me feel good. It was great to write something other than the journal entries, weighing-in, or Havamal study. I already have an idea for the next one and hope that I can keep it short.

My comic…Oh my! All I can say is that the app I found took longer for me to draw with than doing it by hand. My goal was a simple stick figure comic to bring a little chuckle but it was lacking. I can either watch the tutorials or go balls deep and do it by hand. If I’m going to do that I need to stop by the store and either get a small sketchbook or a grid composition. I did find my Wacom tablet and pen in the garage so I’ll try my next one with that.

How did your first week of working towards goals pan out for you?¬† I’m going to work damn hard on making sure I get a photo for my 365-Day project.¬†Happy Sunday everyone.

 

Week 1 Comic

I have been fooling around with an app on my phone for WAY too long. Tomorrow I will look for my bamboo stylus and pad. OR I could go with drawing traditional. Either way, I’m heading in the right direction for one of my goals. This is pretty much how I feel when I’m trying to take wonderful cell phone photos. I’m going to try and get better with my stick figure comics. Happy Saturday everyone!
