Rob Stenzinger – 30 Characters 30 Days
Wow there they are, 30 characters in 30 days! I offer a big thanks to everyone for all the encouragement and inspiration. Many of you have mentioned the awesome community feeling this challenge has created and I could not agree more! I have found many new artists to watch and watched some of my favorite artists dive deeper into their art.
My designs were all for two projects of mine: Art Geek Zoo: A music fantasy adventure that centers around a penguin (Pick Wingvey) and his mystical guitar friend (Crunchy). And also: Thellos Village: My future graphic novel and video game project about a village (Thellos) besieged nightly by monsters in the nearby woods.
This challenge was at times for me, ahem, a challenge. I have to admit feeling a sense of relief as I posted my 29th and 30th characters. I know I commented far less often as the days grew closer and closer to 30… as I was adjusting to the time it takes to do these in the way I wanted to do them that included time to play and learn tools and techniques I hadn’t yet practiced. What a great experience though, the practice made me more comfortable with digital painting in photoshop and with art processes for character creation. It’s been an awesome time exploring outside my comic creation comfort zone.
Also a special thanks to Tyler James for being the instigator. Let me know when you throw down your next artist challenge (but please, give us at least a little rest first!).
