I’m a 20-something design graduate who’s finally getting back into drawing after a four year long depression hiatus. Eventually I’d like to go to grad school for either fashion or illustration, and knowing myself I’ll probably wind up doing both. You can check out My art here!
I’m still learning how to sew, and am trying out new techniques on cosplay and costumes before I start with for real-real apparel. I’ve learned a lot, though, so if you have any questions about something, feel free to ask! If I don’t know the answer, I definitely know people who do.
THIS IS SO CLOSE TO BEING FINISHED
BUT THERE NEEDS TO BE A CAT AND HOW DO YOU EVEN DO THAT OK
I mean, I HAVEa cat and their anatomy still makes no damn sense to me. :C
HOW DO YOU HAIR
LIKE, HOW DO YOU MAKE IT LOOK LIKE HAIR INSTEAD OF A BLOB OF WEIRD COLORED ASTROTURF
In any case, I’ve been working on this today between the bridesmaid’s dress and the other digital painting, but I’m not really sure if I want to keep going with the painterly effect with this one. We’ll see how it turns out, I guess!
*froths at mouth*
ETA: I actually don’t think I’m allowed to bitch about this anymore, because it’s actually looking really nice. :x
If anyone ever tries to tell you that digital art is “easier” because blah blah newfangled computer machines blah blah painting with REAL paint takes real skill blah blah photoshop lets you cheat or something idk I’ve never used it before blah
Stab them in the face with your stylus.
No jury in the land will convict you.
Painting from photographs makes me feel like a hack. u_u
ETA: DEAR LORD HE LOOKS LIKE A CARROT
BACK TO THE DRAWING BOARD (literally, haha?)
I was half-asleep one evening and got the idea of drawing Hijabi!Snow White after staring at my floral curtains for too long. I was really, really tired.
Also, figuring out what to draw in interior spaces is really hard. :c
I think I’m going to stop doing my linework in Photohop.
Looking back on the work that I’m the proudest of, it’s all been stuff that I’ve drawn on paper, inked, scanned and colored. I feel like I have more detail and finesse when I illustrate that way than when I do pure digital illustration. Also, my tablet is poop and it’s really hard to make the lines not jittery and weird looking, which is something that isn’t a problem with pencil and paper.
Ugh, I don’t know. Thoughts?
And that concludes this week’s episode of “Why cleaning up your lineart is a really good idea” with Whatevertron. Up next week: “Finish their fucking ears you lazy shit”.
Spaketh he: “fix your fucking line work, shit looks like jittery dick.”
And so she didth.
