I have decided I will be participating in Inktober this year seeing as the stars have hopefully aligned so I can spend time doodling instead writing! I have officially completed the first draft of book two (working title is The Red String Of Fate), and it clocks in at a hefty 147 000 words. I … Continue reading Inktober!
I hadn’t realised I’d let so much time pass without posting. My wee study is more like a documentation of me improving my art over quarantine. I can personally see huge leaps of skilling up in each piece. Life is soon returning to normal and I’m not all that sure I want too. Le sigh.
So I’ve never been that happy with my portraits of Tegwin. Classically beautiful is surprisingly hard to draw. I always liked to draw interesting faces, with wrinkles or freckles. Tegwin is an interesting character, but seemingly tiny and delicate and of course a flawless complexion (don’t worry kids, she’s no Mary Sue.) This is one … Continue reading Happy accident
Any way I decided to do a art study of character expressions in between rewriting chapters, and snippets for A Whisper of Destiny but I absolutely had to share this. I feel like I have come a long way from when I first started out this digital thing. Hopefully in the next couple of days … Continue reading Particularly proud of this
So I posted the basic outline for this sketch a while ago. This is the same sketch with a few more details. I used my body kun dolls for reference, as well as previous sketches of the two characters. Also Asadel’s outfit is referenced from an actual regency outfit. Tegwin’s upper half is referenced from … Continue reading Progress report
So I always wanted a wanted poster for my main character, Asadel. Today I sketched the face I wanted on the poster. In my head, Asadel’s pacing around scratching his head, saying, “it doesn’t even look like me.” That’s the point, darling. He’s pouting at me now. I’ve been ignoring him for weeks, and I’ve … Continue reading Today’s sketch
I couldn’t resist attempting an old fashioned photoshop piece. I should be studying for my professional exam but doing creative stuff is soothing. The base images are not my own, and I’m not making money of the image. My OC’s Asadel and Tegwin.
So I feel like I’m improving, and starting to grasp this digital art thing. I’m still not doing my best art yet, it still feels a bit amateur time at the moment. Maybe I remember wrong, but I used to be capable of some amazing pieces. I’m still not in a place where I can … Continue reading Not quite finished but sharing anyway.
If you’re a bit of an artist I totally recommend them. It’s been a while since I sketched and painted. A few something, something years. Honestly thought my game was off, and I was out of practice. I got these things on impulse buy. Honestly I miss having the time to create real art, but … Continue reading So I got my Body Kun Dolls yesterday
