Week in Review: creating accountability
I thought about starting to write some weekly catch up blogs to encourage myself to be consistent with posting here. After numerous attempts with daily anything, I conclude that "daily" is not sustainable for me, so a weekly goal might be more achievable.
Fairly productive this week with my studies and some personal art. I've got my hands on a copy of Procreate5 Beta and have been trying it out. Not too much difference so far, except the additional animation tool. It's not bad, but having had access to more powerful animation tools, I do find it somewhat unintuitive and jarring to any workflow I might have.
It's awesome for straight-ahead animation work though! I've only done one piece with it and that was very short and sweet, so it's not a lot to go by. I think I am just overcomplicating the process as per usual.
This one was probably my favourite as it was fun to do and emerged from a somewhat discouraging source. I just think it's really cute, it makes me smile to look at it. That's an odd feeling, since I was the one who created it.
In other news, I've cottoned on to Asana. Yes, slow on the uptake, I actually thought it was a paid app which is the entire reason I avoided trying it, but a client of mine has been using it in our workflow and I decided to take the plunge to see how I could use it. I've set up projects for freelance work as well as studies and a passion project. Amazing how organising yourself feels so invigorating to the enthusiasm.
Well that's it from me for now, if you happen to be reading this, please comment and let me know your thoughts on the weekly updates idea. I'm curious as to whether others think it's a useful or effective way to stay consistent.
Until next time, have a great week!
