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 )

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) )

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

(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 )

Days until APE: 161
Characters complete: 7/31

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. :)
nendil: (error!)
Long time no post! This is a project I've had in progress for about a year now (actual work time: ~4-5 months), but never mentioned to anyone except Kevin and Joel. Today I took some photos to show it elsewhere, so I figured I might as well post 'em up here too.

Cross-stitching! Of the most insane variety! )

I've got a couple other Mystery Projects in the works, but I haven't been feeling ready to show them yet. The last couple months have been terrible for accomplishment, but at least I have been getting some work done lately. Look forward to a few more posts before TOO long (fingers crossed)!

I've never related to Jupiter very well, so I don't quite feel as solid on capturing her personality. For those of you who know & care - how's she look, character-wise?

Jupiter - progress )
nendil: (Default)
Man, I feel like a pandaing pandering furry artist. Thanks a lot, JKR.

09. The Hermit (values sketch) )
nendil: (tablet)
I SWEAR I'LL WORK ON A TAROT CARD AFTER THIS ONE. I just gotta balance out the roster first. Plus she's purty.

Mars - in progress )
nendil: (tablet)
I did make a meager effort to start sketching The Hermit (and I do like where it's going), but these portraits are SO much easier and faster and funner. XP

Hold on guys, I'm getting a codec call )

Pretty out of energy (and time) to work more on this tonight.
