Smitten

Week one of the Holy Order of Viking Draftspeople was a smashing success. Every morning at 4, the Twittersphere rang with the yeolps of mighty Warriors of Pen and Stylus. I especially enjoyed reading the check-in posts of Vikings from other parts of the world (including at least one who, being from Scandinavia, may literally be a Viking). Special props to those who made it all the way through the first week. The first couple of days were a bit of a trial, but I was happy to see so many people make it over the hump, eventually to sing the praises of their new, more productive routine.

It's never too late to join our ranks. #HOVD on Twitter.

I'm not at my home computer right now, so I can't post any images from my week of drawing right now. I'll stick something here later when I get home. In the meantime, it would be lovely if my fellow Vikings could post links to the work they accomplished this week down in the comments. For my part, it was a record-breaking week that saw the completion of another page.

Woe betide our enemy, the Blank Page, for next week we will smite many more!

BAROOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!

  1. I... Flatted some stuff. Because I'm still doing that. But I also signed a contract to colour something.

    1. Holy crap, that's beautiful! Glad to hear you signed a coloring contract -- I'm looking forward to seeing how it comes out!

      Look out, world. Here comes Eagle Gosselin!

  3. I'm "the at least one" from Scandinavia (I hope there's more of us), I did this: http://www.lufthamn.com/_projects/mm/ for a game I'm working on. And I realized that when pixelart and animation might work for HOVD:ing programming didn't work as well at 4 in the morning.

    1. Yeah, it took me a while to figure out that the reply method had changed here, too. Progress marches ever onward.

  5. Oh my, I tried it and I just got up once at 4, the 6 and now at 8 everyday, BUT I have been getting up between 11am to 1pm for the last year so I'm getting there. I feel younger and happier! I use to go to bed between 3 and 5 am everyday, so this is a good good thing.

    1. Yeah... I guess the process of getting older means getting up earlier and earlier until, I dunno, at age 100 you're going to sleep at 3am again.

  6. Overall, it's been a big improvement for me. I'm getting more done, reducing stress, and with a few exceptions, devoting me evenings to family time, and everyone has been happier. Big thanks to Nate for the kick and the pants, and big thanks to all the fellow #HOVD-ers who continue to push along. I'll be updating once a week with 2 random panels of work I've completed. The first one is here: https://pbs.twimg.com/media/BBI-wNJCcAEPZbS.jpg:large

  7. I guess pretty soon I'll be waking up extra early to do some flattening too- and i'm part Scandinavian, my last name was mentioned in Troll Hunter. Does that count for anything?
