30 Characters Challenge

OK, sooooo....I'm not going to be able to finish out the 30 characters challenge.  I'm trying not to think of it as a fail on my part.  It's not so much the drawing every day, because I do that anyway, it's the logistics.  Seriously, it takes a good chunk of time to scan, edit, upload and then proceed to upload EVERYWHERE else for these things.  It's annoying and by the end of most days I just don't have the time or patience for it.  Plus some of the crap that gets posted on the site drives me bananas.  I'm not talking about bad art either.  It's a learning exercise and I fully expect to see a broad range of work on there...it's the stock photos from films.  I can't count how many times I've seen someone post some random stock photo and under it there's one sentence about the character.  "This is Duke Honkendorf and he likes to kick ass and take names...he's from the future too."  I mean COME ON that's not even showcasing your writing if that's what you're trying to do.  To me that defeats the purpose of the challenge.
So, anywho...I might post some of the characters that I had brewing in my head on here for shits and giggles but that will be it.  Sorry if you're saddened by this turn of events...it means I'll have more time to do my webcomic!  And you know what always makes me feel better?

This face:

You're Welcome.

Well, it is called a challenge for a reason! Appreciate you participating thus far. One thing you might do is try the "batch approach." Which is to say, just draw a few of your characters, stock up 4-5, and then do all the scanning and posting and tagging...the time consuming stuff, while you're listening to a podcast or watching tv. It's 30 Characters in 30 days...doesn't have to be one each and every day.

I think what you have is awesome! I loved the style, so I would request more, but I totally get the deadline thing. I still want to see your work!
