The results from a livestream a few days back! Just playing around with scenery, lighting, and color contrast.
Some quick scenery practice, and some not-so-quick tree practice. Whoever made the tree grow that way must’ve had a lot of free time on their hands.
Just a quick doodle of little miss Annie-banannie before I go to work. I can never quite decide how curly I want to make her hair, but she’s fun to draw all the same.
I’ve received a lot of letters from artists asking to check out their artwork and their blog, and I’ve noticed that a lot of them openly write unhealthy amounts of negative comments about their artwork, it was super depressing, honestly. :(
Confidence plays a very very important role as an artist, it’s what helps us learn and grow without the constant feeling of doubt and jealousy! You are a unique individual who must go down your own unique path, and as scary as it sounds, you can’t rely on others to hold your hand all the way through. You are the only one who can get yourself to where you need to go, and beating up your artwork is not the way! Trust yourself and your abilities to make a change, and you can do anything!!
Love your art, love yourself!
All of this^^^
This is so beautiful ;___;
I want to say something, but I can’t: every word is just flawless and completely true. Every aspiring content creator needs to see this <3
Got a brand-new Wacom Intuos as a graduation gift today, so I decided to test it out. I’m really admiring how much more precise it is than my old tablet!
Also, a glorious shout-out to my fellow graduating class of 2014! Go Pioneers!
Sometimes my warm-up doodles look presentable. And sometimes, I just get a little carried away with coloring them.
and that’s amazing.
The final results of tonight’s Livestream! Thank you to everyone who came!
It’s been a while since I’ve drawn anything SFA Project-related, and I don’t think I’ve posted any of it up on Tumblr either, so I’ll knock out two birds with one stone with this drawing of Cassie and Lillian/Pyrisa.
Drawing warm-up and eye concepts for the main cast of Gang of Hats. It’s interesting how much eyes can convey on their own, isn’t it?
(And yes, Annie is always that wide-eyed. Her friends joke that she must have been born from a cartoon to have eyes like that.)
Senior Scientist Christine would like to battle!
I only wish. We all know my real Trainer class would probably be Artist or Super Nerd!
This work’s a collaboration between me and my longtime friend Cynthia. She did the drawing and lineart, while I supplied the colors and shading.
You can find Cynthia’s works over at her deviantART gallery, ArtemisiaAbcynthium. Check her stuff out when you’ve got the chance— she’s got a fascinating surrealist style and mad acrylic skills!
