Super duper sketchy time. Been working on this piece for a little while now when I can between work. It’s a gift for a friend, SHHH DON’T TELL HIM IT’S A SEEEECRET.
Hopefully I can get more work done on this during Turkey time vacation next week. This’ll take a lot more tweaking before I’m happy with it, especially in the face and hand…and everything region D:
I need to art better.
+Then and Now+ Current Progress
Started solidifying the lines more at lunch…blah blah blah.
I got nothin’ else.
You can see my old…and terrible…original image here:
+Then and Now+
So I have seen a few times on dA this meme where you take an old image and redraw it with your newly formed uber drawing skills. Intrigued by this I decided to revisit an oldie image…actually, it was the first image on dA that I ever got a DD for…well…back then it was the ‘Daily Favorite’ actually…oh how things have changed over the years.
You can see the original image here:
So yea, I drew this picture back in 2002. A decade later you can at least see there is some improvement. Sadly not as much as I’d like to have seen by now…but I’m sure it will be more noticeable once I finish her up and get her colored :)
Still, it’s a fun exercise…maybe I’ll try to revisit something that I drew from an even earlier period.

*beware very minor spoilage ahead for A Song of Ice and Fire if you have not read thru A Storm of Swords.*
So I’m working a bit more on my nerdy fan art of Dany and Ser Jorah from ‘A Song of Ice and Fire’ series. I’ve decided to go and try to take it in a more ‘realistic’ direction…at least in trying to get the characters to look like their actor counter parts more. Because…I am in love with Iain Glen’s look as Ser Jorah, and I swoon every time I see him. Yes, I know I’m strange, more news at 11.
I think I’ve used more photo reference in this picture then I have ever used…ever D: Not that that is a bad thing…but I’ve come to realize that I am TERRIBLE at drawing the likeness of real people in my art D: It’s very hard for me…so I scrounged up as much photo reference as I could. I am at least pleased with how it came out…close enough anyways.
As you can see from this drawing…I AM A SUUUUUPER MESSY ARTIST!!! Holy shit, am I messy when I sketch D: You can see I am in the process of refining the faces, hence why they seem a lot ‘cleaner’ then the rest of the picture…I like to work in chunks, and since faces are my favorite thing to draw, I usually start with that portion first.
I might livestream once I feel this is ready for the inking stage. I’ll make a post about that if I do :) So you can watch me ink tediously and be bored to death with how slooooow I work D: Oh, the fun that will be had…
Anyways…that is all for now…excuse my fan-girly, self-serving, gushing silly fan art D: I’ll get back to drawing sexy half naked dragon girls *and maybe boys? Ooooo…Ahhhh* someday soon…
Pencil Brushes for Photoshop
I stumbled upon some niffty photoshop brush presets that give a nice pencil effect. I’ve been looking around for something like this for a while that gave a good faux pencil look to my digital brushes, so I figured I’d share the findings :D Have at!
