Oh I enjoyed this one! I know a lot of the fun stuff in this page was in the pencil drawing, but I move so much more slowly during the livestreams that I didn't think the camera battery/card could handle the sketch process.
I must have picked up some inspiration for sketching buildings from somewhere? It's definitely not a thing I usually do - there's lots of unnaturally straight lines and tiny unidentifiable fiddly bits that seem intimidating. I went to Granville Island with my cousin this weekend, and "caught" a few new-to-me pokemon. And so I removed a seagull from the original photograph of the public market, and replaced it with a Kabuto! I don't know what a Kabuto is, but I have one. Put that on a t-shirt.
I feel crazy productive about last stream day! Mood wise, things have not been too well. This month would definitely have been one of those low-productivity months where I don't do anything and then feel bad about it. I didn't want to do a damn thing on Monday. But because I scheduled a 3-hour livestream, and therefore was obliged to sit down and work regardless of how I felt about it, not only did I have a finished watercoloured page, but a bigger graphite drawing as well! :O
