Aww, Reigan! <3 I don't think I'm very deserving of any fan girls just yet. But the moment I am, I will ring you up and hold you to that offer!

And drawing the fanart is just too much fun. I haven't done much of the trolls, yet; I suppose I should get to them, too.

Thank you, AlkseeyaKC! I think I'm getting better at posing: I don't need a mirror very much any more. Still need to go study anatomy and do some life drawings, though. Especially important for my portfolio. :>

49.) I'm almost to 100 followers on Tumblr, so as a sort of commemoration (only time I've hit a benchmark like this) I started drawing this picture. Homestuck spoilers through Act 5 Part II abound in this explanation:
Spoiler! :
It's Karkat gearing up to go against shithive!Gamzee. Or at least posing like a badass, I guess.

Image

Closer up. Working big is a double-edged sword: lots of room to do detail work, but it's almost negated when you have to resize the picture for easier viewing. Karkat just refused to work for me for the longest time. I like his face now (his mouth still bothers me a little), but it took a while to get there. I'm experimenting with better lighting this time, as opposed to my usual "whatever, whatever, I'll shade where I want" approach. And a slightly more dynamic picture composition, but not all of that is seen because I haven't quite gotten there yet. Also, changed my avatar to this picture because I've had the other one for a while.

Updatinggg. Spoilers below.


Karkat's pretty much done, just need to do his sickles. Gamzee is giving me trouble, so I need to study some lighting examples for that one. (If anyone comes across a similar bottom-lit picture, feel free to shoot it my way!) Also, his arm is too long: making a note to fix that now.

I read that post with a scary-sinister tint to the tone. Suddenly I'm looking over my shoulder, feeling rather paranoid.

Thanks! Still working on improving it, little by little. Also, Gamzee is going to eat you.

Finished the picture. Less like "finished" and more like "I was tired of working on it". If any of you wanted to follow my Tumblr, the link is listed on the picture because I'm too lazy to save a version without the tiny watermark.

Wow, I haven't updated in a while. School has seriously been killing me. My ability to draw kind of died for a few months. Still not quite sure if it's resurrected itself yet. Anyway, here's a dump from me trying to draw since July:

50.) I was really into Teen Wolf during the summer. (Don't ask.) I tried my hand at a group picture but I kind of gave up.
Image

51.) Some character designs for an animation I want to work on. Eventually.
Image

52.) I really got into the Clone Wars earlier this year. Obi-Wan is my favorite Jedi (I know, ugh, I'm so mainstream), so naturally I had to draw him a lot.
Image

53.) More Clone Wars fanart that was never finished.
Image

54.) I asked for suggestions because art block, and someone told me to draw a hot babe. I started but with Starfire but I guess it was just meant to be Blackfire. And so it was.
Image

55.) What I'm working on now. I started rewatching this series from the second season last week, and remembered how much I loved it. I feel like it sort of peaked at the end of the fifth season, but I haven't watched enough of the sixth or seventh to make that judgement, I guess. Ten internet points if you can actually recognize my terrible rendition of the characters.

Thanks AlkseeyaKC! Posing is just fun. It gives me excuse to stand around in front of my mirror and look silly. :D

56.) Just some animation tests. Same character with the glasses 51. I don't actually know how to animate, so I'm just winging it right now, haha. Also, Merry Christmas to all who celebrate it!

57.) Sherlock fan art. The Reichenbach Fall was awesome. I can never really finish pieces past painting the bust.
Image

58.) Color key stuff. I don't actually know how to do a color key, though, but these were just tests for scenes in that imaginary animation that I'm always thinking about.Image


59.) There's a 31 Day Challenge going on over on /co/, and Day 6 was to draw a superhero aged up or down.
Image

60.) Tintin fan art which I will finish eventually. Someday.
