It's taken long enough, but now I understand why folks have trouble keeping up with their New Year's resolutions. This usually has to do with the "all or nothing" approach where folks feel that the very first time that they fail to meet their goals, they believe that the whole effort was a failure and proceed as if the resolution never existed in the first place.
This year, I'm trying a different approach. Failing to meet a goal is not the end of the world. Instead, it's to be treated as "these things happen" and just keep going. Instead of vowing to to a sketch every day, I'm going to see how many I can do between now and the end of the year. And to make things more interesting, here are the rules I am using for each sketch:
For the subject, I will go to Wikipedia, choose "random article" and what ever comes up will be the subject. For the style, I will roll a die. Depending on the result, the style will be:
1 - Superhero
2 - Cheesecake/Pinup
3 - Monster/Robot/Mechanical
4 - Furry/Funny Animal
5 - Fantasy or Gothic
6 - Creator's choice
This is a personal challenge, but you are welcome to play along. Just make sure to post a link to this message so that everyone knows the rules. And here we go!
UPDATE: I've created a folder for all entries to keep things neat and tidy. I think there's eleven so far. Check 'em out!
