is a good medium to use whenever blogging because it may take a little while to set up a shot and get the right one, but it makes it easy to blog for 2 reasons: 1) It's already digital so the gap between the camera and getting the pictures on the blog is tiny, and 2) It's quick. The project that I am working on uploading currently is a time-lapse of about 11 hours worth of work. It started out with a couple of sketches:

This is just playing with styles of line and trying to decide which one I would like best for a tree.

Once again, playing with line and color. I have never used pastels in my life and that was the medium I chose to use for this project, so I was trying to see how they worked.

..ignore the weird phoenix thing.. lol. The important thing about this page is the color study. I was seeing how colors respond to each other. As you can see, not very well.. :/

Anyway, onward to the video.... I think it turned out decently well. My lighting got messed up and I had to shift the camera several times because it was next to my bedroom door, a flaw in my thought process, I must say.
Skip to the end if you just want to see the final product, though it's only about 40 seconds long..
