What, me draw fanart without putting shipping in? OHOHO YOU KNOW THAT IS IMPOSSIBLE

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 )

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.

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.

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.)

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!

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) )

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.
nendil: (tablet)
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
nendil: (tablet)
(Nintendo E3 conference in a few hours so I better get this chunk done already!)

I was excited to get to her at last :) But it was pretty hard. Doesn't help that I started on a sketch with terrible proportions so I was constantly having to adjust and fix things.

Moon )

Those earrings look so cute :D I want them :D

Days until APE: 130
Characters complete: 9/31

This one went faster because well, I didn't have to paint 90% of a body. But still didn't make up any time.

Earth )

Days until APE: 155
Characters complete: 8/31

Poofy :3

Hopelessly behind. Too much to do, too tired. I'll just slowly plug away and deadlines be damned.

Juno, Chibimoon )

Got bored of painting teenage girls, thought I'd doodle something more manly.

Batter up )

But then I thought, that's not really all that manly. What's really manly is...

Hey catch )

So back to teenage girls, I guess. But MANLY. :D

Cutting it close~ It was seriously dead at work yesterday and today, otherwise I would've fallen behind already. And this isn't so much "finished" as it is "sufficiently refined", but I go back and touch up stuff in "finished" parts when I look at them days later anyway so this'll be enough progress for now.

Ceres )

Days until APE: 192
Characters complete: 5/31

nendil: (tablet)
So I did the math and if I were to get this done by APE, I'd basically have to finish one character per week (with a tiny bit of leeway but let's not talk about that). Fortunately, so far my new job's been pretty accommodating ;) so it's just my own laziness sleepiness holding me back!

Vesta, Pallas )

Hopefully I'll be able to keep up with the schedule, which means you should look forward to weekly updates here. FINGERS CROSSED/KNOCK ON WOOD/AND ALL THAT.

(And I feel bad for all the other projects I'll have to leave by the wayside for like half a year. Gotta have goals, though...)

Days until APE: 199
Characters complete: 4/31

A year ago I was lamenting how I'd never pull off something like that epic Zelda fanart in a million years. Well, much like every other prediction I make about my art, disregard that.

Oh god it's huge! But not as huge as the final version will be! )

Today is the 20th anniversary of Bishoujo Senshi Sailor Moon's first episode airing in Japan. I had wanted to finish this tribute by then, but there was no way that was going to happen, so I figured I might as well give you guys a glimpse. At least I can aim to get it done within this year! :)

Close-ups from the most finished part: )

(Yup, all those portraits in the past few months were warm-ups for this. And also they were fun :3)
nendil: (boing)
According to esoteric methods*, my cross-stitch is 12.6% complete :D That number doesn't account for the detailing (outlines, etc.) I still need to do, but it's a close enough estimate. Sooo, 1/8 through after about 6 months' work... 3.5 more years to go! YEAH!

Progress shot: )

* I have a Photoshop file where I keep track of the squares I've stitched. Recently I did a little googling and found the feature that tells me how many pixels have been filled in. :D
nendil: (tablet)
It always turns out that I'm like "Oh, I'm okay with not having drawn anything for Valentine's Day." and then I see all the stuff other people have done and regret it. So hey, here's something I've had sitting around and won't get to for a while.

Still lots to do. )

The intended context of this scene is somewhat of a game spoiler, but it's okay as long as I don't tell you. :)

Heeey I used to "be" a "writer" once upon a time. Somehow (as in, about 10 agonizing words at a time), this got done. Not that I think anyone here is following this story, but at least you can look for typos for me, if you want.

Chapter 7 )

A while ago I was doodling and ended up with a scene from this story, years and a bazillion chapters from now. I didn't deem it important enough to post, but since I'm on the subject and since I've been so pathetically sparse with art, you can take a look if you want.
