Ehhhhh I wanna draw something but I keep stumping and starting over (too many things to do at once and nothing all at the same time). I feel like I might be resorted to sketching screencaps again :/ (which isn’t totally bad, it’s fun cartoon practice) of course, it’s not like I would reject anything httyd at all, it’s sort of my fun subject choice right now and I will probably never stop (I love it too much). It’s just annoying when you go to do something freehand that you’ve done for years and can’t get anything out. I’m open to suggestions and stuff as well^^’
Basically a summary of how I feel at the moment. Sketched these in a few minutes from screencaps because I’m having a frustrating time drawing things of my own right now (though I’m surprised how quickly I can sketch from reference now). Got anything interesting you want to see me draw? I’m open to a few suggestions for those downtimes when I’m feeling blah or just need a break (original or fan monsters, characters, that kinda thing).
I’ve been having a very frustrating past few days (week maybe?) of trying to colour my other astrid+stormfly sketch, but for some reason I am failing at it miserably (got the hair to look nice though), but it’s taking so long and I am feeling defeated, so in the meantime I just wanted to do something quick to put me in a better mood. Nothing fancy, I just decided to quickly sketch a screencap because I’m feeling super blah and am not feeling creative or good enough to do anything of my own~ (hope I get out of this funk soon)
Nothing special, I just drew a really quick map for an RP that I’m in. I didn’t go super fancy, I kinda rushed it. Posting it just cause’
Nothing fancy, just a simple intermission drawing of a Typhoomerang as a little break from my Astrid and Stormfly picture (it’s a little time-consuming to colour). Decided to have some fun with the dot matrixes that come with MS5 since I keep forgetting I can use them. I took a few creative liberties on this too.
I should be practicing drawing people and human anatomy, but instead I can’t stop drawing dragons. I’ve had this curse since childhood and it can be very distracting (my mother thought I’d grow out of it, sorry mom, but once a dragon, always a dragon. It’s also my Chinese zodiac, so I’m just expressing how proud I am of my heritage, that’s all).
Ugh, what a weird couple of days. Been so physically drained and sleepy for no reason at all, making it hard to move or have the energy to do anything, even though I have been getting enough sleep, have been eating healthy and I exercise (I have to walk everywhere).
I had a really bad hypo attack today though, worse than I’ve had in a while, so I wonder if this weird energy drain is just an extension to that (and I have been devouring everything in sight and am still not fully satisfied). Hope this goes away by tomorrow, it’s super annoying.
It’s making it difficult for me to get this darn picture done! D:< *rages*
Oh wow, thank you everyone for all the great feedback on my Astrid and Stormfly sketch! I was definitely not expecting that, it was a very great thing to see after coming home to from work! If this one turns out well in completion, I may do more of these :) (been thinking about doing Ruffnut and Scaldy next!)
Astrid and Stormfly Sketch WIP
Just a little something I started a couple nights ago! Thought I’d take a knack at some portrait work (since I suck at people heads), but I’m liking how it’s turning out so far. I’m a super messy sketcher, which is why you never really see me draw things perfectly on the spot in real life (I need lots of room to make mistakes). Hopefully this turns out good once I’m done.
omfg it took me FOREVER to get rid of Biff from my town in ACNL ages ago and now he’s just MOVING BACK?!!? Of all the villagers that could’ve moved into my town in place of him! Dx
I’ve received a lot of letters from artists asking to check out their artwork and their blog, and I’ve noticed that a lot of them openly write unhealthy amounts of negative comments about their artwork, it was super depressing, honestly. :(
Confidence plays a very very important role as an artist, it’s what helps us learn and grow without the constant feeling of doubt and jealousy! You are a unique individual who must go down your own unique path, and as scary as it sounds, you can’t rely on others to hold your hand all the way through. You are the only one who can get yourself to where you need to go, and beating up your artwork is not the way! Trust yourself and your abilities to make a change, and you can do anything!!
Love your art, love yourself!
Here’s another creation! A mermaid based off of the frilled shark, a prehistoric shark that is awesome. I made this mermaid very old because the species itself is ancient, and she is dying in the shallow water because frilled sharks are used to living in much deeper waters and rarely ever appear.
Want to see a better rendered version of this? Let me know!
Had a lot of fun drawing these little guys! I wanted to do a more unique approach to common mythological creatures (like my leafy seadragon mermaid), so here are my penguin/sea otter gryphons! Obviously not built for flying, these smaller gryphons are built for streamlined high-speed swimming for catching fish or eluding predators (the extra wings on the back help with balance as well). Claws and beaks also make it easier for them to break open shellfish and are great for underwater climbing and digging. I drew two different breeds since I was wanting to draw a couple poses anyways.
