Here's how my February art-a-day is going! I decided to do a wilderness scene with standing stones, on the general principle that it would have lots of interesting textures and if things don't match up properly, I can put a convenient bush over the awkward joining bits. XD (I'm already slightly concerned about that cliff in the foreground ...)
An unrelated thing that I haven't managed to shoehorn into a previous post: the best thing I've done for my mental health and productivity the last couple of weeks is to make a personal rule that all browser windows must be closed before I go to bed. It's working out so well that I think it's going to be a permanent habit. (It's pretty close to an established habit already.) For a long time I've had a bad habit of opening a bunch of tabs and letting them age while I try to compose comments or decide whether to reblog things or read articles I meant to read. If something is REALLY important and I don't get to it by late evening, I can bookmark it or c&p the URL into a text doc, but that extra step of engagement really makes me think, "... am I actually going back to this? Is it worth it?" I thought it would be harder to nuke all those windows at the end of the day than it's actually turned out to be. If it's not important enough to comment on, read, or reblog within a few hours, it's probably not something I'm going to regret never coming back to.
