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.
Just trying different approaches to stuff.
File it under things I won’t/can’t finish. Sorry Voi! you were a good guinea pig for my scribbling. :P <3
Sometimes if I’ve been drawing things for awhile I feel like I start to do things out of habit. So I stop. Sometimes I just go watch or read tutorials or just videos of other people drawing and painting. Try to pick up something I could maybe add to what I know so far.
First I decided to go back to some basics (back to? I never started in the first place) Just googled some pics to use as “models” and sketched them. I have always been way way too lazy to practice sketches and anatomy stuff so hopefully it’s something I can force myself into.
Second, I tried to pick up a few more techniques, or photoshop tips when it comes to colouring or painting, something I pretty much suck at. I just can’t refine blobs of colour into nice things without sketches and clean lines lol. I messed around for a little over an hour to get this, I kind of like it I’m just really slow and can only get as far as a face so far XP
Well all finished. Line art and sort of a basic colour block posted here with the final version. I’m sure I had something I wanted to explain as to why I did this or that but I forget lol. I worked on this on and off for awhile.
I still need to plan things out a lot more before hand instead of just messing around and making stuff up 60% of the way through XP but anyways..
The scribbly little doodle plan, rough sketch, and rough lighting plan for a Lion-O/Mumm-Ra piece.
I wanted hints of both 80’s and the most recent version of Lion-O, the more updated costume is better than the old blue underwear lol. For Mumm-Ra I just wanted him to look creepy, still in his decrepit mummy state ( I like him like that because he’s like some ancient evil sorcerer looking thing) but possibly on the verge of transforming. I should be able to fill the negative space with flashy magic shit or whatever, we’ll see :P
Thundercats, as well as Ninja Turtles we’re a big part of my childhood so being able to do cool fan art of it now feels cool to me.
Just a few of the sketches I did for some people over the past few days. I try to keep them quick so I can finish more in the time I have. The bottom 2 are just random doodles of a friends character to kill some time.
I’m workin on something right now and should have a WIP/rough sketch soon! an actual Thundercats fan art since I found the Cheetara sketch fun.
Random request doodle, Cheetara from Thundercats, based off the original cartoon more so than the new version, think I might have accidentally gave her a wild 80’s look anyway lol.
Didn’t spend long doing it, but spent more time on colour than I had planned.
Downtime working on a few friends superheros. The first pic is just a little re-vamp of an already estabished design. But she was a little plain, I think the new look works and better displays what’s supposed to be a kind of sound amplifying/manipulating ability.
The second pic is a new one. She basically just wanted to have wings, fly, and be owl inspired. It’s her first draft concept so things will be or can be tweaked to her liking. I’m thinking with only the power of flight she’ll also have to have some combat/warrior background to be able to hold her own. So I gave her a weapon. I like the idea that she might have poor eyesight without the glasses so the goggles become necessary too (prescription goggles? XP) The O on the chest is just there until she has a symbol of her own.
Just wanted to draw again, until I have some new ideas or inspiration I continued to chose one of the random requests I asked for on facebook awhile ago.
Mega Man! I think for a quick sketch he turned out cool so I coloured him.
Pretty quick for me, under an hour probably. Fluke lol.
