Remember Pinwheel? Check out this week’s Billy Badass!
Today’s project was to make some art to splatter on my various online profiles. Spent the morning looking for templates for social media art. Apparently it’s very hard to find something that has all the current sizes in one psd file. There were plenty of “cheat sheets” that listed measurements, downloadable offerings if you signed up for a mailing list, an extension for Photoshop I figured wouldn’t work on my version, some paid templates, and some people offered templates of the final reduced sizes which I guess is alright for mocking stuff up but not for actually producing anything.
Following that I decided to try caricaturing myself for a profile picture. I had a reference file of various head shots I put together for a self portrait awhile back. If I stuck to the ref too much I came out looking like Ray Stantz. I like what I have so far but I want to ideate on it a bit and try various styles. I’ve come to rely on the version of myself I drew in Townies, which is nice and all but it’s not the only way I can draw. I took an extended nap and just finished dinner. Going to spend the evening working on a background piece that hopefully encompasses my interests.
Daily Doodles should return in January. I’m going to give myself December to ramp up my daily drawing practice.
