Hi Rhyldur,

I'm glad you're still trucking on. As we discussed, I got on the Finishing Train as I stepped away from DAB and I'm enjoying the ride . . . or is it a marathon XD. I just began my own art collaboration in the form of a sketchbook. I have made the only contribution so far, but I will soon be passing it on to another artist to add to it: Follow My Lead.

Never thought of it since I don't consider my drawings to have much personality or style to even collaborate with someone. The more I learn the more I realize how far I am from the point of consider myself even an "amateur" artist.

From what I've seen of your work you have a lot to offer; you have much room to grow and so do I. Style is the result of our process and the natural tendencies we develop as we create and grow. An authentic drawing is (probably) as unique as your fingerprint. Would you (yes YOU) at least consider making a contribution to the collab at some point? I could try to mail the book to wherever you are in the world. You're the only artist I connected with consistently on DAB and would love for you to be a part of this collab.

I never joined Discord, but thanks for the suggestion.

Here I am, a month after. I was able to finish lesson 5 and spend my credits yesterday before they would expire today. I think I'll try to keep on and start the 250 cylinders challenge.

I consider this as a great compliment. Thank you.

I would like to make a digital contribution if you want, since right now I'm more into digital art than I am with traditional. I don't recommend you to send anything this way, it would be such a pain for both of us, but I am grateful for the offer anyway.

Way to go, Rhyldur.

I would like to make a digital contribution

Thank you for accepting my invitation. Yes, you can contribute digitally; but please wait till the current artist is finished and I update the online record; the current artist may also pass the book to another artist before I get it back. I'll reach out to you when the book is available for you to contribute. Here is the book introduction. Would you be willing to provide any public contact info for the record if other artists want to get in touch?

Hi Nathan! I hope you are doing good. I took a look at your webpage and I'm glad you are also doing some letter artwork and logos. They look really nice.

As for the book, do not worry, I shall await my turn. No hurry at all.

I read the introduction and everything looks fine to me.

Would you be willing to provide any public contact info for the record if other artists want to get in touch?

I'm a very introvert person so I'm not comfortable with sharing public contact info. BUT, recently I've been thinking of creating and anonymous Instagram account just for sharing some of my art without being worry that anybody around my surroundings knows it's me. When I come up with a good name (which is a difficult matter for me rn haha) I'll create it and reach out to you.

This is another one of those things that aren't sold through Amazon, so I don't get a commission on it - but it's just too good to leave out. PureRef is a fantastic piece of software that is both Windows and Mac compatible. It's used for collecting reference and compiling them into a moodboard. You can move them around freely, have them automatically arranged, zoom in/out and even scale/flip/rotate images as you please. If needed, you can also add little text notes.

When starting on a project, I'll often open it up and start dragging reference images off the internet onto the board. When I'm done, I'll save out a '.pur' file, which embeds all the images. They can get pretty big, but are way more convenient than hauling around folders full of separate images.

Did I mention you can get it for free? The developer allows you to pay whatever amount you want for it. They recommend $5, but they'll allow you to take it for nothing. Really though, with software this versatile and polished, you really should throw them a few bucks if you pick it up. It's more than worth it.
