I could be Batman

So this is something that’s pretty different from the usual :P I offered to draw a friend who’s really in to pokemon as a trainer, and during the extended time it took for her to narrow down her choices for 6 pokemon, I finished this, it’s my wife as a trainer because she wanted to be one too.

I’m not familiar with anything past the old 150 lol so I had to do a lot of googling but she obviously likes the water types. She chose Mega Gyrados, Mudkip, Vaporeon, Milotic? and I forgot the other guys so frog ninja and crawfish guy XD.

Tho I drew them pretty quickly and cheat filled them with colour instead of the usual careful way I still found it kind of difficult to draw such simple, clean little drawings of these things…and so many of them in 1 shot,especially being in water. Turned out decent tho and I like how her character turned out.

Now I can move on to the next one! and then on to a long term project!

Finished this guy. I don’t know why but it’s extra blue and pretty blurry it seems when I upload it here. Weird. (ok so it gets a more crisp when you click on it. Tumblr what are you doin I don’t even)
This is the superhero incarnation of one of my brothers, as with the previous you can see more of him in previous posts or try to use the hashtags and stuff.

Been working on the second one, Got all the way to flats tonight so I should have no problems finishing before my vacation starts!
From top right to left.
1) The original scribbly sketch. 2) Same sketch while doing my new thing, a sloppy colour plan just so I can sort of imagine hot it might turn out when it’s finished before putting any work into it. 3) Content with the plan, lower opacity of first sketch and draw a cleaner one over it, making adjustments and corrections. 4) quick colour check again. 5) Clean lines 6) Flat colours.
Just a little peek at the process.

Trying to finish 2 of these before the end of August. 1 down 1 to go. Light sketch that was sketched over the original quick doodle that I posted previously, made some adjustments and a basic colour plan before I got started with actual colouring. I decided the chain was boring near the end and wanted it to be more dynamic but also travel back and forth from the background.

Line art is still killing me and I spend a lot of time making art like this appear as if I know what I’m doing lol.

Anyways, friend’s superhero incarnation! curious followers can find more about her and the others in earlier posts.

Just one quick really rough sketch/plan for an upcoming piece I hope to be able to finish this and 1 other before the end of August! There’s like 3-4 layers of messy scribbles drawn over each other here lol..just trying to go over the parts I like so far so I don’t lose it all in a mess of lines.

Some of the quick sketches I’ve been doing for friends online in my continuing attempt to be able to draw decent looking sketches in a short amount of time. I’m able to keep these, even with a quick colour job well under an hour now and they turn out decent enough. So it’s been helping!

Got a summer/water theme going on in this batch. Hope everyone is enjoying their summer!

So I had this sort of idea for a drawing (1st pic)

I’m not crisp clean drawer so things like GUndam heads are WTF? I used like 3 toy heads for refs but they were all a lil different. Didn’t free hand anything, just a whole bunch of pen tool/straighline tool. Then added gradient shadows places, then base colour and highlights hoping it would sort of at least look metallic, then more colours and shadows and all the rest of the details. Oh also..I only really drew half then copied and flipped it that’s right, lazy.

3rd pic, sketches and lines, stiff boring pose. I fuck things up with line art often. At least I like his head and face. God damn lines.

all finished. It ended up not that exciting compared to the first but a little more Gundam Wing fan art out there never hurt. First time it was Zechs and Tallgeese, this time it’s after he joined the White Fang with the Epyon.

I like the first scribble drawing most XD

Something quick and fun. My cartoon self spoofing the opening to the 90’s Batman the animated series. Which is awesome btw.

I’ve been slacking on this pretty hard, mostly because I’m tired after work and nap too long leaving me usually well under an hour of free art time if I even get to it at all :P

But for now I’m finished! The plan was to have another character back there, but I’ll do that some other time, just filled it in with blocky colours to show where she’d go. It’s going to be Beth, I’m not that into the shipping that occurs them so much, I just thought they were a really interesting contrasting pair. (I started this a few episodes back when they were burning stuff down etc)

Anyway, Daryl is a badass and The Walking Dead is gone until October? lol who knows when I’ll finish.

Sometimes I just ask people what I should draw. I got 2 walking dead suggestions, which I thought ok, sure I like it, I’ll try a couple, got this lil thing sketched out not really sure where I was going or how much time I was planning to spend on it for fun.

Then like a derp, I decided to try to colour it the way I’ve been practising lately. *turns fun sketch into long project*

lol so, not sure how far I’ll go with this. Until I’m bored or stuck maybe. But I share this for now.

*edits instead of spamming minor progress*

I pretty much slept all night after work so didnt do much on this tonight. I did however lighten up his facial hair it was a little too heavy, and tho I’m not going for 100% real life accurate I want it to be easily distinguishable as the character.
