Yes that last one is legitimately a lyric from the last song I was listening to. I swear.
Also this was my first/last attempt at mixing my metallic powdered pigments with regular fountain pen ink. It comes out way too wet on my dip pen and way too dry on the fountain pen turned dip pen. And as you can see the gold doesn’t stay very spread out. Starts out strong and fades out. At least it’s still pretty.
AND I just realized I left out the l in cuddle. Woops.
This is my second to last one of these. And then I’ve got sketch commissions. And then after that I want to do more of these. I’ll be reblogging the 100 version of the palette challenge. :D
I’ve been hovering around 95 followers for a while now. Or rather I’ve gained a few followers and then lost a few.
I have no hard feelings about that, but if anyone feels like my increased speed and re-blogging of things they’re not interested in gets too annoying, I really want to encourage you to follow my art blog: sunlanterns.tumblr.com because I ONLY post my art there, along with a few art related references and notes on my original stories. So it’s a lot slower but you’ll still get what I consider my important updates.
That way I won’t lose my followers completely. :)
I just got back from vacation to South Carolina and Georgia! I got to take lots of pretty pictures.
Also these are all pictures taken with my newest camera. It takes wonderful close macro shots but I don’t have a good medium lens to take pictures of landscapes with.
Most recent commission and obviously what I needed those pictures for. Man I needed that Armature pose. I was so off in my proportions and angling, it was terrible. Now it looks awesome!
The arm angling could be better actually… But I got tired of it and this looked okay at least. The more I stare at it the more it looks wrong though…
I got a new camera today! And not only does it take AMAZING macro pics of flowers which I’m a huge fan of, but it also takes pretty good pictures of my drawings too. Only thing I haven’t tested it on is my Armature, but I plan on messing with that later. For now I’ve used up too much of time I’m supposed to be doing work during, haha.
This came out soooo good. I’m super proud of this piece.
This is my art blog! I just finished this piece, and I’m sad because it took me forever to get around to it and I really hope the anon gets to see it.
So I’m at 93 followers. I gain them pretty slowly so I’m sure it’ll still be a while before I reach 100, but I’m totally going to do the cheesy cliche thing and do a special drawing when I reach it, just because it’ll make me happy.
Course my art blog is only at 13. I’ll probably do the same whenever it eventually reaches 50. If ever.
Q:Did it take you a long time to get used to your graphics tablet? Since I got one err... Two days ago? Three? Anyways, it's not exactly going well (the sketches are acceptable, but once I start with the lineart and colouring it ends up looking like those Windows Paint drawings we all did as kids) and I'm just sorta wondering if I'm doing something wrong. :/ Also, I love your art!! It's cute and awesome and asdfghjkl I love it! <3
Thank you!! :)
I’ll start by saying, I’ve been using a Cintiq for my digital art for the past two years or so and, for me, it makes digital work a lot easier to do. However, I did use a regular drawing tablet for about 10 years so I definitely understand the struggle :)
And yes, getting used to using a tablet can take a lot of time and effort but trust me, it really does get easier and more natural with time! I don’t know if you’ve done this, but I replaced my mouse with my graphics tablet so whether I was drawing or just doing general computer work, I am always using some kind of tablet. I think it helps with the hand/eye coordination, but that’s just my thinking behind it :) I don’t want to discourage you, but at the beginning it did take me a couple months to feel really comfortable using the tablet, but I really could tell a difference, and the more I practiced with it the better it got. You have to remember, you’re pretty much teaching your brain a completely new and radically different way to draw, it’s gonna take some practice! And it might be good to experiment with different brushes and settings. There’s a lot of brush options available online for download, and maybe a different brush would work better for the look your going for than what you have now. Just some suggestions.
And I’m sure you’ll get the hang of it with the time and practice. If you have any other questions, feel free to ask :)
Good advice, and knowledge for any burgeoning artists who have considered getting a tablet. It took me a few months as well to make the adjustment and feel like I could draw as well with the tablet as I could with pen and paper.
Q:Artemis from young justice in 11
Sorry I’ve been taking a while to get around to these. My nights just aren’t very long during the week and I’ve been wanting more to play games on my new computer than to draw.
