tree project - #1

Over the past week I've hit a bit of a sketching slump. I'm in the process of developing a style and look for a new webcomic, and each time I think I have something good I would step back and shake my head. I think the hardest part for me is deciding on what I want the main character to look like, and my continuous disappointment is starting to hurt my drawing-hand's feelings. I just can't get what I have in my head onto paper. Deep down I know that I'll probably never be happy with what I come up with at first, and that I'll be able to tweak and refine it over time, but it still gets me down. Silly Americans and their need for instant gratification!

So, to keep my spirits up and to switch things up a little, I'm going to start a small project. Each week I'm going to sketch a series of trees (because I lurve to draw trees!) so I can feel like I'm being productive while creating something I know I'll be happy with 99% of the time. I'm going to trick my brain into feeling positive! I'll choose an arbitrary number for the sake of having an end-point... let's say 26 trees.

Ochre is one of my favorite colors! I think my right-handedness is showing through the curvature of the tree...
