Teal Lipstick

I wish I saved more steps like usual D: I was using the same document for lots of sketches so I couldn't go back, but here's at least 2 steps.

30 minute sketch. Sloppily put the colors and features to where I liked it.

Then finished it. Spent another 20 or so minutes refining it. Zoomed in a worked with an airbrush and hard brush for details.

Images are working again! Hurray! But everything is backwards.

Practicing horses again!

Cherries <33 Quick 15 minute study from life. I kept eating them.

New Drawing! -Link-

Argh! I'm running into blog issues. D: The images aren't posting, so what I'll do is link to my Tumblr blog. That has a neato slideshow anyway. :D

I drew Link in a modern concept art style, I've always wanted to see what it would be like if he was in a Xbox360 game :D

Here's the WIP: Link WIP Slideshow!

Spent a lot of time figuring out things on the body. Huge help :D I'm going to do more figure drawing after this.

But oh man, Today was Andy's last day of class! So we'll probably be sleeping all week and playing L.A. NOIRE <3
So dang excited. My friend says it's amazing so far o_o
This blog post has been delayed for a couple days now, I apologize, I was running into scanner issues. Curse you HP.

Practicing the body. The guy in the loincloth is the first I drew, I hate how he looks. Looking at those angles really is helpful. Especially for the torso, and later the legs.
Some more random body practice. Some of them ref'd from Vanderpoel's figure drawing book
THIS Helped me so much. Drawing the feet and leg over and over. Huge help already O__O
Feet are always an obstacle *dies*
THIS ALSO Helped like crazy! No refs, but I figured out in my sketching stage, I used to always draw the nostril very low. But you draw it where the "triangle" line is! See the drawing, I drew an arrow pointing at where to draw the nostril.
This was before I figured out noses..It drives me crazy now. But just practicing colors.
This was a "Daily sketch" challenge on CGSociety. It was my first, but basically you have an hour to finish a speedpainting of whatever the title describes. This one said, "Midnight Runner"
This is what I imagined. Running away from THE MAN or whatnot
This is a drawing I just started. LINK <3 Figuring out the face.

Drawing some things I see!

I moved my computer to my bed, and it's a lot more comfy ($40 memory foam mattress pad from goodwill? YES?) And there's a giant mirror and more interesting things to draw.

So I did a 15-20 minute self portrait, I'm trying to draw things faster. :\
I was wearing Andy's hat for no reason. (well I was cleaning the apartment and my hands were full, so I just put it on my head. Then I thought it looked cool)
The light from the lamp is a really yellow one. So tried to also practice skin by looking at my arm. it's meh..
Now a still life, 30-40 minutes? A candle that smells amazing, and my journal. On my bed.

I did this one yesterday. Was trying to shade my cartoons kinda realistically without making them look freaky. :\ I don't know what to think of it.

Quick figure study with no refs. Self portrait from life. I discovered that I can't draw myself.
Arghh. Must practice more, I'll keep trying to do self portraits to practice faces.

My hands, quick drawings from life.

Then I shaded one, trying to figure out some forms.. Still suck at hands.

And a photo study. :\ yikes.

But in other news, an AMAZING Person has a blog now: [link]
Chamba is pretty much the coolest human being ever.

Mortal Kombat Animation

Here's the animation!

I kept saving as I go, so I have some old files. I was afraid the file I was working on would get all corrupt (happened before Dx)I am missing just the 1st sketch stage but you can kinda see the light grey sketch stuff.

I'll post it for kicks, never know if it will help anyone.
Man it's been forever since I've animated! <3 I lost my pen for part of it, so some is with a mouse.
I ended up finding the stylus in my purse for some freaking reason.

I used a V-cam, someone showed me it. It's kinda really awesome :D It's like a camera on flash.

Okay, one more sketch before I go to sleep.

No refs, just practicing stuff

By the way. Thanks so much for all the freaking amazing comments on my Portal picture. Some comments really touched me, like the one on the bottom of this page

After that picture though, I realized I needed to practice hands more.. I drew some bammes studies, trying to figure out the bones under the hand. They're tricky :\

Andy was drawing with me in my sketchbook, here's his sketches! :D! Cutie pah <3
We were making fun our old teacher's dumb sense of humor

And here's some digital gesture drawings.
60 second.

Portal 2 WIP

I saved different files, just in case I had to go back, so I'll post some of the process.
