I've decided her name is Joan Hartweiler. Just seemed right.
I don't know what else to put for tonight. I feel like I'm losing steam these past few days. Probably lack of sleep.

The two test paintings mentioned before. I don't know if I can really call them full pieces, they're more just quick practices to test the Krita brushes. I went through and cleaned them up, made sure they're all still doing what I want them to do. My goal is to hopefully take advantage of the brush engines to make a bunch of brushes that can carry out specific purposes. Best example here is the cobblestone on the bottom painting. It's tough though, because I want to have brushes that serve a certain function but I also don't want to name them after something specific and thus miss out on what other uses they could have. I've made that mistake before. I guess that's where tags come in.
Athena's face came out a little fatter than I usually draw her, but I still am happy with how it turned out.
It's 1AM and I have work tomorrow. That won't be fun in the morning.

I never thought I'd have the experience where what I was doing at work was more interesting than what I'm doing at home, but here we are.
In general I feel more organized now that the calendar program has been set up and my timers more or less keep me in focus. I don't think it's any sort of mental issue, I think it's just the dangerously convenient proximity of that brief flash of entertainment with the actual work that needs to be done.
