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:
