Incremental success

Dynamism! Dutch angles! Perspecti--uh-oh. )

Help how do I learn to put eyes properly on a face without relying on complete accident ._.

God it's been a BAZILLION YEARS since I've art. Doodled a bit to get back in the groove, feels like it's promising enough to keep going.

Nothing original here )

Selling out

I did a free commission for my cousin & his fiance. :>

It was surprisingly easy, so I'm thinking of doing more of these for fun and profit. Anyone interested in being my guinea pigs I mean portfolio samples? You get a big discount depending on how close of a friend you are ;)

Rules: )

This is all very experimental so I wanted to see how smoothly the process goes before I advertise more publicly. Lemme know if you are at all interested, even if you want to negotiate about the details :>

Hi, just wanted to inform you all about the best shiny ever.

Found him on day 2 while hunting for a female Eevee. Now he punches things really hard and flies me everywhere *A*

(And this gen I can even fix his bad ability to make him punch things even more harder! *A*)

(BTW, I know I'm only talking to like 3 people on this journal nowadays but if you're pokemonning, tell me your friend code here.)

As close as I get to plein-air painting

Went to Yosemite last week (escaped just before it got govt-shutdowned) and I took my sweet new 3DS XL with me, Art Academy in tow. It's a good program for making relatively-quick live sketches! (I also bought Colors 3D which is more Photoshop-like in its versatility, but I didn't try it out because I felt it would've taken longer to get going. Will have to give it a go next time.)

These all look worse on the computer screen than they did on the 3DS... )

I lied; there may be more.

And here's that other one I mentioned.

Dodongo dislikes smoke. )

It's kind of fun how this tool makes me more spontaneous. Usually I don't start a painting until I have an idea in mind, but I've found that approaching the Wii U with something like intent doesn't work out due to my terrible layout skills, and instead it's much better to just pick a paper and start doodling.

Art Academy: Sketchpad

Got this thing on Wii U. It's no Photoshop or Painter or even SAI, buuuut can't help showing off on Miiverse having fun.

Pastels all the way. )

I've got one more pic I'm working on, then I should... probably go work in a more productive medium until they come out with oil paints for this thing.

Today was Earth Day at the local botanical garden, which means it was free. We already have memberships so it would've been free anyway, but it was a good excuse to go out there which we don't do enough of. The last time we went there it was winter, so it was a lot more lively now :)

Big pics, but it's worth it. )

Must... stop... playing iPhone games...

Gotta step it up oh god. I finished these faces, but not full bodies (or even hair) yet except for Venus. These are at 75% zoom and they won't look as purty at display size :X

Mercury, Mars, Venus, Jupiter )

Days until Fanime: 75 (AAAAAGH.)

Is this how the animators do it?

So I opened up Maya for the first time in over a year because I can't draw geometric shapes or perspective. Totally forgot how to accomplish anything, but at least my fingers still instinctively remembered how to move the camera and the move/rotate/resize tools!

HP Tarot card progress - Justice

Barging on ahead. Hopefully this looks sufficiently 1) like Neville, 2) like a Justice card and not King of Swords or something.

11. Justice (values sketch) )

Next up in the series of past-due-posts:

Placing the blame on [ profile] ling84 and [ profile] loobywibble, I made my own Zelda cake toppers for my wedding. I kind of wanted to keep it a surprise, so I hadn't posted any progress shots previously. Today I put the final finishing touches as best as I can, so it's finally time to show it! )

Well, I still have a good amount of clay and wire left. Maybe I'll do this again someday... but definitely bigger.

HP Tarot card - Wheel of Fortune

Wow, long time. I have quite a few past-due journal entries to write/post, but I set myself a deadline for this one and barely made it so here it is, first.

10. Wheel of Fortune (final) )

Guys this is hard. Is her face looking okay? )

Well, I said I wouldn't prioritize this thing but that doesn't mean I don't still want to work on it. :P

This warrants profanity

FUCK, ARE YOU KIDDING ME. This is just internet rumor-ing RIGHT RIGHT???

But I wouldn't have posted it if it didn't look like it's got some credibility to it.

Change of plans

I don't think I will finish that picture for APE in October, not if I'm going to arrange a wedding for early November. Plus I want to make a Halloween costume (maybe even +1 for Kevin) this year :> So any painting I do now should prioritize back to the HP Tarot... I think. Maybe a Venus portrait to round out the series :P

(It doesn't really seem like an artwork suited for an "Alternative Press Expo" anyway. Fanime 2013 debut!)
