This week I wanted to give y’all an update to Renascence Man. The animated short; put on hold. A few months back I took a deep dive into learning blender. A free 3D software that’s amazing tbh. And to do that I came up with an idea for a short animation to learn how to model, rig, and animate. For the most part, it worked, and then I got a day job.
I’d love to see Renascence Man come to fruition but at the time of starting I was looking for a job and now I have one! Between work and life obligations I just don’t have the time. And after months of work I’m satisfied with where my blender skills landed.
What I have been making time for, which I mentioned in my last blog, is my drawing skills! I’ve been trying to get back into a good routine for drawing. Drawing at least once a day, with a focus on portraits in particular.
I’ve actually been finding a lot of success and liking what I’ve been making. Luckily people watching is really easy at my new job so I get lots of inspiration everyday. Plus, yeah know, googling ‘models’ to make things easy.
Drawing and storytelling has and always will be my first love and passion for Addle Chair. I hope one day I’ll be able to make being Addle Chair’s studio head my full time job. But for now it’s, as the hip say, my side hustle.
For fun here are some of my old sketches compared to some recent sketches!
