I’M LATE asdghfagcv
I almost had it finished soon enough but schoolstuff was like “haha nope you’re gonna spend time with us instead” and so it happened. Also I had kept repainting all the stuff ever. And this isn’t even the most overdue art thing I need to finish…
ANYWAY HAPPY BIRDDAY ALLIE, I still can’t thank you enough for that amazing Narya ;u;
I am so unbelievably in love with this. It’s perfect. You totally captured the setting, the tone and everything. thank you so much for drawing my Harlow, it totally made my week!!
AMANDA DREW ME AS A MAGIC GIRL SPACE MEGUCA (flips out)
Being meguca is space…
Progress! Worked through the thumbnail some more, no more vanishing leg syndrome. Onward to final pencils!
So many things are happening lately! I haven’t had any time to update with anything neat in a while, so here’s at least a tiny sneak peek a new project I’m working on. It’s for Light Grey Art Lab’s ‘Great Personality’ show, which is all about the science of attraction, and sexy pictures of good looking characters. Yeah!
These are the thumbnails and SUPER rough sketches for the pin-up of the guy I’m working on, whose name is Caleb. I’m probably gonna finish option two, at the bottom - the cropping feels better, and I like the way he fills the frame. Also the pose is more inviting. Anyway, I’m still fleshing him out. All I know for sure is he is going to have a trillion freckles everywhere.
Sure is almost time for the MCAD Art Sale! Just gotta finish adding some business cards to everything, and drop off is tomorrow. Whew!
Cool, we’re okay to post these now! I posted some sketches and a snippet a while back, but here’s the full thing of the piece I made for Light Grey Art Lab's super cool show, Rolemodels!
A new sketch for a new assignment, one with a tight turn around. This illustration will accompany a children’s poem called The Rooks. Busy busy birds!
Spider is coming along! I’m doing another layer of stuff for it today, we’ll see how all that turns out.
This has probably been the coolest project I’ve worked on this semester, and by coolest I mean scariest. So many things with this tried very, very hard to go wrong. But it turned out to be a great experience with digital collage.
From the thumbnail sketch, there were a lot of effects I wanted to do in a lot of media that just would not have agreed with each other on one sheet of paper. I also wanted to see if by breaking it up across the board, I could keep from painting everything yellowbrown, which is my favorite thing to do whenever I try to use watercolor as a base.
The background with all the birds was done in soft pastel and gouache, which really should not have worked, but for some reason did, and I am not going to question it. The lineart was made with pencil and colored pencil, and the tone layer was done with watercolor. I made the stars with tech pen, and then crossed my fingers and put everything together in Photoshop.
This is really something I want to try again!
