Closing out 2015

Well, another year is gone and it’s that time to see how many of my goals I managed to meet for 2015. I didn’t make too many in hopes that fewer goals would mean that I actually could meet them.

2015 Goals

  • Read at least one chapter from a Unity book a day
  • One Drawing/sketch a day
  • One Blender tutorial a day
  • read 200 books

I came close on a couple and total epic fail on the other two.

First up I read 193 books this year. I am an eclectic reader so I read a number of different genres, although I do have a fondness for anything paranormal.  I just barely missed reaching my goal, so I’m setting the same goal for 2016.

I read two of the Unity books I have in my collection but did not manage the one chapter a day goal I had set. Which also means I still have 10 odd Unity books still to get through. And silly me, I keep collecting Unity books, even though I haven’t read all the ones I already have. So this year I plan to work my way through as many of them as I have time for. 😛

While I watched quite a few blender tutorials, yep once again, not the one a day I planned on. Life has a way of not giving me a lot of time to just sit and watch videos. I am generally multi-tasking all over the place. So this year, watch as many videos as I can find time for.

And the last one, lol, this one amuses me to no end. I wanted to do at least one sketch a day. I ended the year with 381 sketches. Yay me! Funny part: this would imply that I met my goal and then some….not quite. While I tried to sketch every day, I missed days here and there, but other days I would spend all day sketching and end up with a half dozen or more sketches for the day. Way to meet a goal but still miss it. 😛 So this year, same goal one sketch a day.

New goals for 2016

  • Read 200 Books
  • Work through my growing Unity book collection
  • Watch as many Blender videos as I can find time for
  • One sketch a day
    • work on anatomy
    • work on perspective
    • continue to expand and explore sketching topics (Daily Sketching Workout on Facebook)
  • Spend more time exploring watercolor painting
    • I really like this one, but I don’t sit down often enough to practice and play with it

Okay there you have it another year of artistic goals planned that are totally achievable, how do you plan to spend 2016.
