These two need more love! I wish I could have had this colored in time… Regardless, enjoy Tales of the Abyss in 3D!
Shit. I should have left it as a sketch, it looks so awful! *panicpanicpanic* But I want to color it. And that will happen. Eventually. Why did the lightbox have to be dead? ;_; Now nobody will ever see it colored because I couldn’t have it done in time.
I don’t know why Ginji came out all buff like that. Not that it’s a bad thing, but he didn’t strike me as a big guy. And I hate my lineart. It always looks so blah. (But this is motivation to color! Right? Right?!) Or maybe I just need new pens. It isn’t that bad. Maybe. No, it is. It is, isn’t it?
shut up silverfooted you fucking idiot just worry about getting it colored
I’m jealous of all you 3DS owners.
Is it just me, or do I gain followers when I’m not posting? Is this supposed to be a hint? Hmmm. If it’s a hint, it’s not a very encouraging one, but I’m already pretty discouraged anyway.
Whatever. I’ve not forgotten this blog, it’s just that I’m having trouble drawing. Art block and depression. If I do manage to get something on the page, it’s either a sketch of some random character I made up—and I’m not a good-enough artist for anyone to give a fuck about my non-fanart stuff—or I can’t clarify the idea as I see it in my head. Huge disconnect between brain and hand. Ughhhhh. I’ll do my best to force something out.
Or I’ll stop this blog, whatever. When I kill myself. More and more it seems like the way to go.
gosh i don’t want to be me
there’s too much wrong with me and people don’t notice it
but the problem here is that i do and gosh i cannot live with that sometimes
Apologies for the cheesy lines. I hope European Tales fans enjoy this game!
The last piece I did for the countdown, on the day before release. She’s supposed to be singing. >_>
I like the contrast in lighting, and the backlight, but the shadowing on her face looks weird to me now. I don’t know what it is, exactly. The contouring seems to be off, or something. And a lot of the shadow edges look too harsh. Urghhh.
Also do you know how hard it was to do her hair, because of how long it is and the original file resolution? Okay, maybe not hard, but kind of a pain. Trying to paint lines so long and having to keep scrolling up and down.
I suppose it’s pretty?
At least it’s not ugly ha ha what self-esteem problems.
My second countdown piece. Re-blogging because I am lazy.
Hm, the definition of his lower lip might be too subtle. It’s almost lost. And his hair looks kind of blah? The lines in it are too uniform. I think that’s what it is.
I’m not sure how I feel about the glasses. They seem…oh, I don’t know what it is. I know they’re probably not actually that thick but I was using them to help reinforce the angle of the picture. Does that make sense?
Well, the lighting contrast is nice. Especially on his glove and the undershirt/tunic thing.
…He’s so pretty~ x3
Since it was posted earlier today - well, now yesterday, technically - I can post this here, yay! :D I did this for abysscountdown, which is a countdown to the European release of Tales of the Abyss for the 3DS on the 25th. The character Guy Cecil, in one of his costume titles. He looks so stylish. x3
I am enamored enough of Guy that I don’t feel like picking apart the picture right now, aha ha ha. Not too much, anyway. The shadow/lighting is a little off in places (and there is shadow missing entirely in one spot, oh shit) but it’s pretty nice! I feel like I’ve been doing a lot of this angle lately - profile with body mostly or completely turned to the side - but it’s pretty interesting as a lighting exercise. I should do it sometime with the main light source being behind the subject.
I don’t know if there’s anything particularly good about this picture but I think it is redeemed by Guy himself. There will be a couple more of these countdown pictures later. :]
It’s just that I’m doing NaNoWriMo, as I have ever since 2002.
This is the longest I have ever gone without posting a picture since starting this thing (ten days tomorrow) and yet I have new followers? I wonder if this says something about my art? :D;; Kidding. Hi new people!
There will definitely be a picture sometime this week, though, because I’m doing a countdown thingy. So there’s that.
…Okay time to go novel some more~
i am not meant for making stupid comics
drawing comics is hard
Change like so:
i am not meant for making art
drawing art is hard
and it fits me -_-
Happy halloween, everyone ♥ It’s a little late, but here’s a wallpaper-ish sort of image that silverfooted and I worked on together. You can tell which drawings I did because their heads are so fucking fat 8D
This is late, but I have not had internet up till now. All that messing around with network connections and configurations and all I needed to was turn my laptop off and on again!! Go figure. Anyway, I hope everyone had a great Halloween! :D! Can you tell which ones I did~ (hint: the ones that look less
Hm, the posing on this one is all right, but the lines are a little clunky. Too thick. Here we have an attempt at a background, which I guess is okay. The pattern on her hood is cute.
What I like most is the sense of quietly happy anticipation. Does that make sense? It’s like she’s waiting for someone, someone she wants to see. And it’s a nice day so she doesn’t mind sitting here, waiting… Maybe I’m crazy. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
