So much has changed in one year, yet it’s hard to know even where to begin to explain.
I have hopes that being in my current situation with limited art supplies, no scanner, and no decent digital software yet having a whole new world to discover and pull inspiration from, my art will benefit immensely.
That’s my hope, at least. It’s the kind of hoping one feels looking outside a window, thinking about going outside, but wondering whether it’s too cold or not.
There’s snow on the mountains already! This gets me excited and makes me want to dig out my massive collection of scarves. It’s finally my favorite time of the year!
I love snow. But, I don’t like the wind that often comes with snow. It makes my hair too messy. Even people with short hair can not escape the wind.
Ink on paper, then colored up in Photoshop.
Markers are still something I’m fairly new to, especially copic markers.
But, I’ll use any excuse to draw something sort of fun for the sake of “practice”.
Also, today is my birthday, so that’s another excuse to draw something not too serious.
I’m not dead (not yet, at least), but feeling rather frozen when it comes to my art.
I need a reboot of inspiration, or a good kick in the pants, whichever comes first.
Romance is not dead, even for ghosts.
For this little doodle, I broke out a set of unopened colored pencils I can’t even remember buying.
I actually don’t really do much for Halloween besides eat kitkat bars all day. Someday I’ll go out and have fun.
I’m not sure about the colors, but those are fairly easy to change, as fond as I am of pink. The hard part is knowing what to change it to, though. Colored this sooner than I thought (even with only my touchpad to use in Photoshop), but you can see the blue-ish sketch over at my tumblr.
Inspired a bit by Araki’s style (I was trying to do some color and figure stuff like he does), though nothing near his excellent detail and beautiful line work.
Still, this turned out nicer than I thought it would.
