A new year has begun and I am determined to make more of it than ever, especially where my art is concerned!
So I have decided to do a 365 Day Art Challenge - meaning I'm gonna draw something (and ideally upload something to dA) every day
of this year.
This Journal post will serve as an overview of all my art progress this year - here I will collect all 365 deviations as I upload them. I'm hoping that this will give me a good view of the progress I'm hoping to make.
So here we go!January
