Week Fifteen

Uncomfortable in a bad way or a good way?

Most of us don’t want to feel uncomfortable. We go to great lengths to stay as far away from that yucky feeling as possible. It’s true, feeling uncomfortable might mean something terrible is happening, but it also could mean that something amazing is about to happen. Seek out the uncomfortable feeling that means you are pushing yourself into uncharted territory where you don’t know exactly how things are going to go. The feeling that gives you a knot in your stomach and makes you take a deep breath…before jumping in. THAT uncomfortable feeling is where the growth happens.

I’ve seen you all this month, going out on a limb and trying new styles with your art. This month’s challenge requires you to take that leap into something you don’t quite know how to do, but dammit, you’re gonna try anyway. Sometimes it comes out great, other times…not-so-much. But either way, you are learning!

What to Do

  • This week, attempt one of the 30 styles that feels MOST foreign to you. You probably won’t know how to attempt it, you probably will feel like you can’t do it…but try anyway. I guarantee you’ll come away from the experience gaining new skills and having learned something about yourself as an artist.

FREE Pixel Art Brush Set for Procreate!

This past week I released my first FREE Procreate brush set: Pixel art for Procreate! I also gave a live class on Friday showing you how to use the set to make your own pixel art. I highly recommend checking it out and exploring one of our 30 art styles: Pixel Art!  It’s so much fun! Watch the class here.
