Viola -WIP

So I figured out yet another piece, without really going through some preliminary sketches first. I’m on kind of a roll. Anyway, as the title shows. this is another piece, and actually about the character you saw yesterday. I have been working on both of these, and even better, both of them have their processes recorded, so I might even have a backlog of speedpaints before you know it.

Anyway, I wanted to give her a mischievous side, and I’ve been listening to Warpaint – New Song on repeat, and ideas came pretty easily after that.

Art, Draw Everything June 2

SailorSenshi’s June Art Challenge Intro

You can check here for the link to the contest. But long story short I want to try and see if I can improve my artwork by drawing all of these images. There will be new ones throughout the month, and I have made it a rule that I will get through all of them, through hell or high water.
Basically this will be showing my collection of all of the artwork I make for this, as well as all of the speedpaints.

That’s right, I will be posting speedpaints (not really because they are all going to be over 3 hrs if I’m being conservative, but people are unfamiliar with timelapse for art) for every single picture, even if it’s just gestural art. My youtube will definitely be gaining a new video per week schedule. And this challenge would buy me enough time to do that, as well as a massive backlog too. Hell, I may even upgrade to TWO videos if I think that the speedpaints are taking up too much time. I’ll have to think about it.

This will be on the main page so you can look through my gallery and check out all of my notes and ideas surrounding these ideas. Preferably I will only be drawing one picture, but since I will be starting three weeks late, I will really only have until the 15th of July to get this done. In case it wasn’t obvious, I’m going to have a lot of work to do. And that may include a lot of failed sketches too.

Let’s get to work!

Viola – WIP

Viola.png

So if you follow my youtube, you’ll remember a month back I posted 1/2 of a video. This is really an update to say i am still working on this, it’s just been put on a backburner, since It was my first time in a long while trying something that resembles realism.

As you can probably guess, it dips right into uncanny valley, and I don’t particularly like it, but leaving it unfinished just feels odd. So I will be finishing this, eventually.

She looks like she is staring into your soul, doesn’t she?

Vibrant – WIP

ANOTHER SKetch.pngI’m not too sure where I am going with this, but I like this pose. May need some refinement first. I feel like something vibrant, with lots of coloured dots and bubbles. I’ll think more on this later on.

Alice – Final design WIP

Alice1I think that this might be the best concept sketch I’ve done. Unless in a few days, I decide to do something else. For now though, I think this is the best ‘Alice’ sketch I’ve done, even though its not totally finished. Very different from the first sketch I did for this, but I’m proud that I am improving so much. i just wish it didn’t take so long.

I won’t be updating until Sunday, since I’m working on this. Hopefully I will create a backlog in the meantime. Not stressing over daily uploads may help. I might change it to every other day instead.

Ephemeral – Speedpaint (1/2)

 

I may have a lot more to say when I finish this, so that will be when I fully discuss my process and such. For now, here is the video:

Lucky, I am posting twice today.

I decided to try and fully record myself doing anything, and settled on doing a better Youtube banner, since my other one is just a piece I did a while back, and I don’t like it now. So that went a bit pear shaped, and I’ve spent only 4 and a half hours on recording this, but I haven’t gotten far with it. Either way, I need to upload on Youtube sometime, so I figured that I will post this now, and the rest on Sunday, since I should have Friday and Saturday to finish this.

Quite some improvement from my first video, eh?

Alice – preliminary sketches

Alice sketches2.pngI liked the idea of a ribbon of water, so I’ve tried a few more sketches, based on some of the other sketches. Testing hand positions and the like.

Alice – Preliminary sketches

Alice sketches.pngOn one of my social media accounts I posted a picture of a character named Alice. I didn’t particularly like it, so I am having another go. you can tell how I work, crossing through designs that I don’t like, or are precursors for more dynamic ideas.

New banner WIP

 

Phoenix(again) sketches.png

Phoenix(again)I’ve started some preliminary sketches for a better version of Phoenix. The original piece does not sit right with me, and I want a much better banner that shows true skill. I’m still going through some refinements, but the base sketches are pretty good. You can see which one I’ve picked, but it will still need some refinement, such as a stronger, more dynamic pose, and better hair movement. The foreshortening needs to be fixed, but it is okay for a first attempt.

Crow Master

Since I only uploaded this on my tumblr and deviantArt, figured I may as well post this everywhere else. I made her while I was listening to Critical Role on Geek and Sundry (Go check it out, its really fun)

The Crow Master isn’t supposed to be anyone in particular, or any character in particular. She looks cool either way.
