Internet Withdrawal

It may appear as a not particularly prolific time in my studies, but it's simply the fact that I have no internet, and posting images on the web now seems like an obtrusive hassle. Internetless state requires so much more organization and planning.
I am drawing a lot in my Sketchbooks, mostly ideas and characters for school projects rather than personal work. I have also been exploring the use of brush pens, sketching a lot, and find myself in a strange state of being glued to the influence of Caricature drawing. While it's true that I had sought that job in the first place in order to train myself to loosen up my character designs, make them more animatable and expressive, it's a strange feeling to be drawing cartoons now while my aesthetic sentiments very often lean towards stylized but not "cartoony" animation, towards anatomically realistic humans and expressive gesture. Yet it seems that I am having quite a successful time drawing toons.
I suppose instead of worrying about it I am going to simply explore where this route takes me. My goal right now is to achieve diversity in styles in order to have a library of them available to me when I want to tell a story.
It appears to be again, the time for explosive patience. Disciplined practice and hunter-like observation. There will come a time when I will make use of the invested study, but now something about the state of air around me tells me it is time to hold my horses.
