Oh look, art.
It’s been a while folks, but the reasons for why are neither here nor there at the moment. What’s important is that I’m starting to find my art groove again and trying hard to get back into it.
Sadly, having fallen off the face of the planet and the art wagon for almost two months has left me…rather rusty. As the above proves, though I was never good with drawing men anyways D: Still have a lot of dust to knock off before I feel like I’m back to some basic semblance of my ‘skill’ *haha…yea…* from before.
But well, got to check out a little DESTINY yesterday with my best friend and took this screen grab of us. Felt like doodling up some sketchy portraits at lunch today. I…well…am always way to critical of my own work so I’ll spare you all the self deprecation D:
Now I just need to get my muse and motivation back to do more.
Oh look, art.
Lunch time work doodle.
So I was totally planning on drawing something else D: What I had planned out just wasn’t working, and I kept reworking and reworking and reworking…and then this happened instead D:
I’ll go with it. After I was done, I ended up giving it a little Bara-chan flair as a nod to an inspiring artist I admire. Another piece that I’d LIKE to take further…but it’ll probably sit on the back burner with all the rest of my doodles for a while until I acquire all the time in the world to finish them D:
Unicorn girls, not as cool as Dragon girls, but they aren’t half bad.
Only had a couple minutes at lunch to sketch an idea down on paper. As you can see, when I start a piece my general thumbnail sketches are super rough and almost incomprehensible D: I’m a very messy artist.
But well, a half Kirin/human hybrid sort of thing. A piece I’ve been meaning to do for a friend for a few weeks now. We’ll see how it turns out.
Sorry for the lack of updates, but both my jobs have been kicking my ass for time :( I’ll get a small pressure relief come July, so I’m going to try to take some of my previously posted sketches to some semblance of completion.
Hahaha…yea… (╯°□°)╯︵ ┻━┻
A quick dragon sketch I blocked out at lunch. It’s been forever since I tackled a dragon so it will need a lot of work. But if feels good to knock off some of the rust on drawing dragons after all this time. I don’t do it enough and that’s something I need to change!
Anyways. I may work more on her down the road and expand on her body, but for now enjoy this little doodle :)
Art Progress - Make sure to click on the hi-res link to see the much larger version of this image for better details and clarity.
Worked more on this during lunch today, refining the details mostly on the female character. This is all done with painting on top of the original sketch (on the left side).
She is coming along alright. Need to tweak some little bits here and there that the over-painting sort of mucked up, but otherwise I’m happy with it so far.
Annnnnd…that’s all I got. Fancy art is fancy.
Watch out, going to whip out my nerd here for a moment.
So, I’ve been dabbling in WildStar on their beta weekends when I have some downtime from the millions of other work things I have to do.
And I am in love.
It’s been a loooong time since I played an MMO that has captivated me as much as Wild Star. It’s so fun and funny and just highly entertaining, and SO pretty! I love everything about it, all the races and the world and uuuugh…I could wax poetic about it for hours.
Anyways, the first character I made was a little Aurin, Mirri. Aurin are a rabbit/cat/forest creature type race and they are vomit enducingly cute. So I doodled her up here at lunch today.
I’ve also got a couple other characters I’m dabbling in, because I love both factions and I can’t decide which I like better. I’ll probably draw up my Draken character latter…because dragon like people, how can I resist!
Bleh, I’ve had a huge shortage of time lately due to workworkwork so I’ve been sorely lacking in doodles :(
I knocked this one out at the tail end of lunch as I had to work thru most of it this time around. I at least got to do SOMETHING.
As you can see…my sketches and doodles tend to be A FREAKING MESS D: I am a sloppy sloppy artist! I’ll either refine this as I ink it, or just leave it as is and paint over it to clean it up.
Anyways, some random dragon/lady goodness. I don’t draw the dragons and or the dragon ladies enough. Shame on me.
More work on my Witchy Birdy Lady…working title >_>;
Anyways…did some more work on her at lunch today. I’ve been listening to a lot of witch house music so I think that’s greatly influencing the mood and theme of this picture.
The image on the left is where I pretty much got to painting today. I extended the size of the canvas from the last image I posted of her to give more space for her head. I also wanted to extend the line of her dress down as I found it to be a nice visual look. Also finally painted the bird skull more and refined it.
I added in the hands as well, it really gives a nice dynamic element to the piece and I think helps focus your attention in on her face more.
The piece on the right is just a last minute rough idea of where I want to take her neck jewelry. It’s just an idea for now, but I think I might build on it more and see how it looks. More arcing elements to bring your eye back up to the focus of her face.
Oh hey, I did a thing at lunch… again… surprise, surprise.
Knocked out this rough painting in just a hair over an hour. Got really into working on the face, which is always my favorite part to paint, and didn’t get enough time to look up some bird skull references D: So… that came out looking pretty bad due to just pulling it straight out of my head.
THIS IS WHY REFERENCES ARE GOOOOOD. Because my memory sucks :/
Did a quick 15 minute sketch at the tail end of lunch today. Kiva is a little halfling druid I’m playing in Dungeon World (my last character met an unfortunate end, sadly). Thankfully the upside to your character dying is you get to make a new one! Hopefully Kiva’s life span will be a lot longer than her predecessor XD
