Sometimes I do things [Sorta art]

Post by Amara » Tue Mar 12, 2013 9:04 pm

I actually don't draw as much as I used to, so I'm really hoping this helps kick me in to gear a bit! Well, today I finished this up, so I'll go ahead and open with this satyr I did. (Friend's character, Rory.)

Yeah, this is awesome. I wish I could draw like that.

Ahh, thanks ;o;

To be honest, half of it is just the patience to sit there with a one pixel brush for hours and hours. Soooo many tiny little hairs. Beyond that its a handful of tricks like overlay layers for texture, or noise filters set to overlay to make skin look rougher. The freckles and blemishes are actually on a multiply layer.

Something a bit rougher that I did last year in sketchbook pro between classes

Woah, dude, I didn't even know you drew. Those are really good. Any other old stuff you can throw out there?

OhÔÇöthanks! Yeah, I can dig up some older stuff. C:

This is fairly recent. A con badge I did for a buddy last month. It's very sparkly and glittery in person.

I drew myself a while back. Just a doodle, really.

An old commission. A character from (I believe) a novel she's writing. Did this before winter break (after there was a nasty depression spell I'm still trying to pull out of.)
► Show Spoiler
This was done for my boyfriend, and I think I posted it on the old forum. Done last summer. This one stubbornly refused the img tag, so it's a link,
Give me a moment, and I'll have older stuff.

None taken. XD I get that a lot anyway just because I have round glasses.

Well, I haven't done much new art, with my PC down, but I did buy ProCreate for my iPad last night, and I've done some less than stellar doodles haha
This is the only thing worth showing and it's ehhh

Not too thrilled with is face, and no clue what's going on with that leg.

His left eye (the one furthest away from us) is a tad on the small side, and the eyebrows are kinda wonky. Bottom part of the face is fine :)

Still done more bear practice, but most of it isn't worth posting.

D'awww! He's adoreable! You are amazing at drawing Amara, I wish I had even a slight bit of your skill!

FYI - how often do you colour your sketches? Your line arts would be lovely to colour in! (I enjoy colouring in, am terrible at drawing though so I never colour things for myself!)

I used to colour my work a lot more often, but I don't really even draw much anymore. Between uni and depression my time seems to always be gone, haha
If I post a cleaned up sketch, anyone's free to do as they like with colouring it, really!

I painted up my pally :D

So um this happened.
I may start doing silly reaction images and posting them; why not. I haven't gotten much art done lately... well actually that's a lie but what I HAVE done is rather nsfw and can't be posted. Oh, the things I do for money.
Mayterm starts soon, but I have only one class and be much freer for sketching than I was during the normal semester.
