Holy crap, haven't actually used this place in forever.
I am simply not a person who writes much...
Been using twitter for short little blurps more, it's perfect for me.

Unfortunately I don't even have any art to share either, haha.
awgh, I'm so sorry.
Ah well. After I am done with some more commissions I may have more to share too.
I like using this place for WIPs of the art I post on DevArt. :3

Anyways, ta-tah.

Here a bit of a collage of various stuff from 2008-2009. c:
Some things you've seen here, but still wanted to share.
Maybe one day I will sort these as clean sketch sheets.

Kitties and doggies

I have been practising shapes and trying out new things by drawing cats and dogs lately, and I must say, it feels very good.
I forget that my main strength was not only humans, but also animals, and drawing them again was very refreshing.

I realised that my portfolio lacks diversity, and now that Devianart has a portfolio option, I plan on making a more presentable one, while staying true to myself as an artist.

Here's what I've been drawing lately:

And the cats again in colour.
Hope you enjoy!

I completely forgot about this place, I am so bad at keeping all my various accounts in check.
Anyways, gotta post some sketches since I wasn't goofing off most of the time. xD
The lady above I am not sure how to colour yet.

This dude was to practice drawing lacing hands. They are hard to draw.

also, practicing expressions. <3

Light and shadow may be a bit strong, hmmm.
This is it for now though. once I add a fancier bg I will upload on DevArt etc. C:

Fixed nose bridge, tilted eyes a little, made his head rounder. :U
moar shadows onneck and shirt/hoodie.

smoothened out the shirt and hoodie and fixed lips and eyes. -__-;
I realised I need to practice painting cloth much more.
But for now I need a break.

Went back into OpenCanvas cause PS pissed me off. XD
still trying to wokr bit by bit on pieces here and there. his cheek looks bizarre, so I will have to find out how to fix it. his eyes also seem slighty... huge? XD
oh well. let's see if I manage to fix it.

ack. not happy with the hair. xD;
blond is so hard to paint. need to find better references.

eyebrows and stuff. will need to fix things as I go along but wanted to adjust the hair first.
Keep forgetting to move around while painting instead of staying fixed on one thing. X_x

Some skintones. |D nothing big yet.

Okay, counterpart of the "Hikami" picture (dude with the dark brown hair and the blue bg).
I plan on updating this post a few times, showing the progress.

I was mostly unhappy with the expression and a couple of technical things (it looked stiff kinda) witht he last one, so I picked a bit more emotion in this to see if I can manage. the question is, will I suceed or fail miserably. we shall see.
Wish me luck! :C

*opens Photoshop and openCanvas*

prairie 2

I got some advice from my boyfriend and tried playing with contrasts more.
I think his example paintover is still better than my attempt, but what the heck. XD;

I got so upset over this picture yesterday you wouldn't believe.
Now I am trying to pay more attention to vivid colours and stronger contrasts.

It's a long hard way to improvement. grrr.

So instead of painting Cowboys, I have something else. ' 3'
I was browsing through Devart DDs, and came across this: Link

There's not much detail actually, I worked zoomed out a lot and rarely zoomed in to add little things.
I definitely have to practice painting mountains. I got a ton of new brushes, but I'm not very skilled using them yet, so yeah. XD;

If anyone has links to environment tutorials or step-by-step stuff, please let me know! I am sucking up all the info I can get right now. <3

Once Upon A Time In The West

Fuu, first results of my practice in composition and lineless painting. - A-
I had my laptop set up next to me, watching Once Upon A Time In The West, paused occasionally and sketched shots that I found most interesting. (I will draw more, but my hand started hurting after the intro. @w@ )

I saw in an interview of LeSean that he'd done the same with the fifth element, analysing and sketching.
Hopefully this will give me a bit of insight into better composition and light contrasts.
I actually feel like taking some of these shots and trying to paint a fully detailed picture of it too.
We'll see how I feel after a few more of them. c:

PS: If you've never seen this brilliant Sergio Leone film, you are missing out a masterpiece. go watch it! 8D

first sketch

I had a christmas raffle last year and the winner requested her character Luna.
Yesterday I had started the sketch, then forgot where I saved it and restarted it.
The lower one is the new version. xD
As you can see I found the original again.

Anyway, I'm not sure which one to use for the final thing. =/
Any suggestions?
