work in progress

I tend to work in bursts of productivity. I’m trying to be more consistent, but given this is my hobby, although I pursue it seriously, I don’t always have all the time I would love to have.

But once I get working, I enjoy posting rapidly progression of a specific piece’s work in progress (wip). I tag them with #unigonpics to separate it from other stuff I post, although at this point my entire Instagram account is dedicated to unigon pics so the hastagging may be overkill.

Once I post a finished piece I will follow up with a complete post under digital art. This is where I take a bit more time to add color (bad pun) to each step along with any useful introspection and critique of the piece. And you never know, I may drop a time-lapse video, too.

So while you can always wait to read posts here, if you prefer your Unigon fresh, then Instagram is right for you.  Feel free to follow me on Instagram, else enjoy my posts here below.  

Cheers!

Dragon Doula, WIP v11. Well, I did not go to sleep till 4a to 1) reach the “The 700 Club” in HOTS, and 2) fix the issues with the lower half of the face. Feeling better with myself, no more self flagellation. All about priorities. #unigonpics #dragon #corelpainter #corelpainter2019 #portrait #hereosofthestorm ...

WIP v3. Roughing in a dragon. Of course, I am. Who do you think I am?! Like I am just going to do a portrait without something fantastical added. And if I am the Dragon Warden, then Marit is obviously the Dragon Doula. #unigonpics ...

Dragon Doula, WIP — the movie! While I do not have the fancy schmancy Procreate app to expect time lapse videos, I put together a bunch of stills. I find doing these, as an artist, really helps me evaluate my own work, especially for one like this that is not yet done. It really does help me learn, and is hugely instructive on the next steps as I can see at-glance issues I need to now address. And I share as I hope they are instructive for others on the journey to learn and grow their craft.
Special thanks to @dibujantenocturno @jakeparker @zatransis @petemohrbacher @artgerm @sinixdesign @karlkopinski @bucciblog @trivuong and all the other artists who in particular inspire by not only in sharing their work, but the stages of their work and workflows. It makes me believe I can do what you do, too — even if I am still many, many years from being anywhere near the level of my heroes such as yourself, if ever. Please do not stop posting; never stop inspiring. You keep me inspired, and humbled. Thank you for both of these gifts!
