bite the bullet and try again
I tried the draw your favorite character with what you’re wearing right now thing! It was fun! Well the one I’d seen was favorite SNK character but I don’t really have a favorite for there so… Have a very sketchy Sharon Rainsworth wearing very unlady like clothes and hairstyle! I should probably have used references, it looks a bit wonky… Oh well!
and another doodle dump;
lately i’ve been drawing only when i couldn’t sleep or felt restless, so i haven’t concentrated much on making any progress, but i’m trying to use more references, to apply the tutorials i’ve read, and to try new things out. but yeah i need to stop with the headshots and work on anatomy. and backgrounds. and many many things.
the arrow is for the chronological order, since i didn’t note down the dates this time; they were all made this month, the last one yesterday when i was on the phone with my mother.
So a while back (last February) I was in a Pandora Hearts mood (again) and decided to draw a mass of tiny Humpty Dumpty doodles, that ended up with one more or less gijinka version o the Chain. Or rather, I doodled a little boy inspired heavily on Humpty Dumpty’s design.
Well, Ryoura talked to me about this the other day, and I had completely forgotten about it, and well I did find the doodle dump in my files and decided to try drawing it again. Same concept, not really gijinka, more of an interpretation of what it’d look like.
For those curious about the one back in February, here it is.
So, here on the top picture you have, as I call them, Humpty and the Dumptys. Elliot’s was white with black eyes and dots and the others - the “reverse” ones - were black with white eyes and dots. I also included a freckled Dumpty. I decided to interpret those as freckles because otherwise they’d be rot, since they seem to appear mostly before the Chains “die” and well, no, there’s enough creepy sad about those little ones as it is.
Bottom picture wasn’t supposed to happen in the first place, but from left to right, have Humpty! Levi, Humpty! “rotting” Levi, and Humpty! Elliot.
I haven’t posted in a while and apparently this blog turned one this sunday so it was about time I put something on there.
I haven’t kept a lot as usual, I’ve been trying and failing to complete a Cherno Alpha fanart for Jaegercon since August, most ideas I had were already done and I wasn’t inspired much for the rest, I tried a couple different things both with the Jaeger or just the russian couple but everything has looked horrible so far *sigh* And I felt guilty drawing anything else, that plus starting classes again, so let’s say I haven’t been training as much as I wished to.
I’ll try again ‘til November and if I can’t come up with anything good I’ll send an apologize to the person and give up because it’s been driving me crazy for months.
Otherwise I’ve been mostly practicing profiles, noses and jaws, trying different styles and angles and brushes, and still using way less references than I should! I’ll work on that! I’m thinking of trying to practice realistic drawings, redrawing photos the best I can, since from what I’ve heard so far it’s pretty good practice.
I’ve seen a few Pacific Rim / Avengers AU on my dash, including a few about Nat and Clint or Nat and Bucky, so I wanted to give this a go!
I started it as a sketch and the idea of making another with Clint to go with, but now I’m thinking more of Bucky? What do you think? Or maybe I’ll just leave this one alone and make something else later. This way anyone can let her have whichever partner they want!
The first sketch I made a few days ago was full of mistakes, as you can see here, I’m glad I decided to take it back and try for better because I like this result much better! I guess there’s always room for improvement! I need to be more patient when I draw!
… Sharon is going to kill you…
Totally worth it~
Gil has learnt to not ask anymore.
for @BoiteBiscuit !
I promised this a very very long time ago, and I finally did it! Sorry it took so long, I hope you like it!
I still have a lot of progress to make, I should practice with bodies and backgrounds more, but this month I mostly trained on profiles and chins and noses! I’m very bad at coloring, I like flat colors a lot actually, and I’m even worst at the sketch/lineart thingie… My sketches mostly end up as lineart like here, because when I try to line it just turns out absolutely horrible… Sorry!
There are a lot of mistakes that I tried to correct here, but I’m still rather proud of the result. I read somewhere that you flip your result horonzitally and that it still works and doesn’t look too bad, the proportions are good. And for once, for this, it worked, so I’m pretty happy about that.
I haven’t been practicing much lately, I was stressing over organizing the holidays and next year, in the end I barely drew anything at all in the past two months and when I did I didn’t keep it, I need to get used to saving more stuff.
Anyway I have cosplays and other stuff to worry about for now but when this frenzy will be over hopefully I’ll get back to it! I still have a couple drawings I promised to some people and I should stop pushing that back too!
Ah and I started using Paint Tool Sai! It’s pretty awesome and I love it, even if I’m so used to using MyPaint that I often forget I have Sai in the first place.
Just a few doodles I made over the past month, I’m experimenting a lot but not saving much in the end so I only have those three (and tiny dragon). I should probably try to keep more.
Well I saved this too, but I’m not really pleased with how it looks:
