A New Challenge

Journal Entry: Tue Jan 14, 2014, 7:11 AM
This year (as in every year's start) i set myself in a new challenge. 2014 will be for me the year of the time trial.
In simple words this means that i will have to push myself effectively enough to complete my current artwork within one day's time. In real this means that i am allowed to dedicate time to a project, and this time will  either be my whole morning, or an afternoon, or in the worst scenario a whole day working non stop (reaching 12h in a row holding my pencils/brushes).
This way my hands will be constantly forced to do their best within the time limit, the media i can work under the aspect are very specific, it will be either pencils/pastels, acrylics or watercolors. In any way they will have to dry fast :nod:
I am positive that i can make this work, its going to be anything but easy, i will not compromise the quality of my work under any circumstances and since its not in my intention to give up on my beloved and precious details i will have to focus and concentrate to get into the point every time in no more than 10h.
So far i have made this happen, both pieces i have uploaded in my 2014 gallery didn't exceed the one day limit.
This  Consumed by XRlS was done in 5 hours. And this Red Mist by XRlS took me a whole afternoon.

You do realize that this concept will NOT include my commissions. :) They will take all the time they need without forcing.

I wish you all a happy,creative and prosperous year. And i want to thank you all for the love and the support you have showed to my work. A big thanks to all the new watchers, i wish i had the time to do this in person with every single one of you. I read all your comments, even when i don't have the time to reply to all of them individually, and i highly appreciate them all. :love:
Keep on Art-ing and smile! :heart:

Thank you for joining ColoredPenciArt group. Your contribution is greatly appreciated and you are welcome here anytime. Your skills and understanding of colored pencils are extraordinary.

thank you for the invitation my friend. I might appear reluctant to submit my work in the group at times, as i dont use color pencils straight, i love to mix my media and by having said that i dont wish to bring any inconvenience regarding the group's rules.

Hey XRIS, no worries, I am so happy that you have joined, please feel free to contribute as much or as little as you wish. YOur work is spectacular and you are a asset to the group. I am in no way picky and the rules for my groups are very relaxed, if your image is made partley with colored pencil or fully with colored pencil, please feel free to add if you wish, I trust your discretion. I can assure you any work you wish to submit is welcome, and look forward to seeing more of your amazing work in the future.

Best regards,
