Portrait January 2018, Entry #5: Kasia
Entry #5 is my wife's and my friend Kasia, who I also drew last year. Here she's on top of the Eiffel Tower! This means that you can just about recognize the Louvre in the background. I scribbled it in because it wasn't the focus of the image and I was tired. The photo reference for this image was lit from the front in natural daylight, which was a relief for me after the last few images. This light actually showed her features a lot more clearly than many other reference photos did.
I can't believe the month is half over and I've only done five images. But with only another five in the queue and my energy continuing to run low, I'm OK with it.
Digital, Autodesk Sketchbook with minimal post-work in Pixelmator.

Portrait January 2018, Entry #4: Happy Rhodes
Entry #4 for this month is one that I first planned to do before the latest call for signups. It's singer-songwriter Happy Rhodes. Rhodes was most active during the 1980s and 1990s, getting a small but dedicated following with her synth-driven arrangements, dark songs and four-octave vocal range. She more or less retired from music in 2007, but returned in 2016 as a member of the high-end Peter Gabriel tribute band The Security Project. This year, a compilation of her early work is coming out on Numero records. 
The photo I used as a reference was taken during a Security Project gig in 2017. Due to its angle, lighting, Happy's unusual facial features and the presence of a complicated prop, it was one of the most challenging images I've done so far. 
I wouldn't go as far as to call Happy Rhodes a celebrity, but she was a microcelebrity before that concept was well-known, and there are thousands of people online who know her face well enough to critique the likeness, and that is one reason for me to include public figures in the mix. When someone like my friend Doruk Golcu does a portrait, it's easier for me to spot its faults when he draws Patrick Stewart than when he draws his friends I've never met. Of course, unlike me, Doruk does his portraits as warm-up speedpaintings whereas I spend a whole Sunday afternoon on them (check out his work sometime, it's great).

Portrait January 2018, Entry #3: Jean's parents
Third entry in this year's Portrait January. I don't know this couple's names; they're the parents of a long-time friend and collaborator, Jean AKA Drooling Fan Girl. 
Going large is usually a good decision, but not if the next decision one takes is to fill the large dark areas with cross-hatching. I don't even like cross-hatching, and I'm not good at it, so this took me many extra hours on top of the normal amount of time spent. And with my schedule being what it is, that meant this portrait was held up for over a week. Sorry about that. 
Digital, Autodesk Sketchbook, originally on a large virtual canvas.

Portrait January will resume shortly. Today, my schedule was kind of too fragmented for it, and now I'm outlining a story instead.

2017 summary in art by Reinder
, Valyrian-Wildfire626 asked me how I saw my art developing this year. Well, I think it will become more realistic and detail-oriented, but I also know some of my plans will go against that, because I will need to speed up my process if I'm to do even a fraction of what I plan to do. Here are things that I want to do in 2018, which is not quite the answer to Valyrian-Wildfire626's question but it's the best I can do:

* Exceed the number of updates I added last year, which was... er, the document in which I tallied them is on my other computer and not in the cloud. It was a pretty good number, especially thanks to the one month in which I posted an update a day across my different comics.
* Take part in at least three drawing challenges and do more art than I managed in the three drawing challenges I did in 2017.
* Take part in NanoMango for once.
* Start two comics, but not before they've been properly outlined and a full chapter written.
* One of these comics will be in black and white, because I really miss drawings that can carry the story without colors.
* At least one of these comics should be with a Photoshop-free workflow, either all-traditional or using a digital process that Photoshop isn't part of (so e.g. Pixelmator, GIMP, Krita, or Clip Studio Pro for all processing steps that I currently do in PS)
* Learn Clip Studio Pro.

I'm going to need to make a lot of time for these things. That will be another resolution, to aggressively guard my non-work time.

Sorry but no. I don't do this. A +fav is an expression of the fact that you like a piece of art, not a favor to be traded.
