I haven't written a journal in quite a while, nor have I been particularly active, for a number of reasons.
I'm in my final year of University doing my Conservation Biology degree, it's been a crazy-busy year and I've had to not only complete coursework for a range of modules, I've had to do my dissertation. That entailed 6 months worth of work collecting data and analysing it in the lab (I was looking at invertebrates and had to identify all the specimens I collected to family level), followed by another few months writing up a scientific paper to explain my results and what I found out through them. Doing that alongside everything else sapped my time and energy, I've been doing sketching but nothing more than that really, I just haven't had the drive. Every time I sat at the computer I would have to do work and when I'd done enough work for the day I really couldn't be bothered to do anything but watch kitten videos or talk to people on Steam. So yeah, lack of art.
But hey! I've finished it, handed it in and generally have more free time now, so it's time for art!
To give me some inspiration and get me back in the swing of things, I'd like to do some flat-coloured sketches of people's characters, something like these;
They'll likely be busts (the head and shoulders), unless I really take a liking to your character, then I might do fullbody
So throw me your characters people!
