“Our world has some pretty creepy and scary things that we don’t understand. But you look up at the band in the evening sky, and realize that’s only a fraction of what you can’t grasp.”
Tried something new for Friday night, inspired by something I saw in an old college era folder. I’ll go back and revisit the head but hopefully it gets the point across.
To explain, Heather’s world is composed of several floating islands on a oxygen-based gas giant. Said planet has a ring system that can be seen in the later daylight and evening hours. So because of the world’s makeup, the sky always seems to appear a bit blue and purple when it’s dark, especially towards the the same hours. This means you have a very fascinating view to look up at.
This was part of my Secret Santa that I am way behind on actually finishing. But this was for a pal I met a few years ago for her Christmas gift, picturing the two of us (self-portrait!) poking around in the mysterious bowels of the Internet late at night. I originally was going to go the “ancient alien/mysteries” route and depict some artifacts, but I wasn’t able to settle on a museum design I liked.
Hopefully this comes a close second. More serene than mysterious, but I was pretty happy with it.
I saw this going around on Instagram and deviantART, so I decided to hop on and do it myself. Here’s my collage of art in a decade.
As you can see, it varies up and down, but only has taken big steps in the last 2ish years. My art was on the cusp of going forward in 2013, then I regressed and it was like I started drawing from scratch all over again to a point. I know I’m very glad with the progress I made, but I feel like it’s progress I should’ve made when I was 6-7 years younger, not when I’m in my early 30s’.
Better late than never, however! Here’s to 2020 being a year I make good milestones and outproduce what I did previously! I think constant work hours has to do with me getting better.
For once, I actually get my holiday image done on time, instead of publishing it in the early hours of Christmas morning. Everyone have a great holidays! Lineart courtesy Christina Weinman.
For today’s prompt, I was thinking about a fall festival for some reason (probably because of storywriting). So I went with a fall wreath, food and some gourds. Pumpkins and squash especially give me autumn vibes, and I enjoy growing them when able. This might be another one I end up coloring as well.
For today’s prompt, Horizon Dawn Zero came to mind. I didn’t feel impressed to draw Aloy however; so I just drew an atypical resident in a regrown Earth looking out into the expanse.
I decided to draw a “hero”, half Renaissance, half DnD themed. The latter especially, as I am getting geared up for my first game soon! So a bearded swordsman was all that was in my head. Fancy.
For today’s prompt, our old shed when I was younger came to mind, back when I was young. While we did clear the foliage later, we also did tear down the shed as it became abandoned for a bit. I did take some liberties with the design as I don’t quite remember what it looked like at the time.
“Nothing is left but dust and ashes…”
I nearly draw another Halo fanart for this one; probably should have!
This was a bit tricky for me, but I decided to try to do a more traditional DnD kind of dragon. I think a goal next year would to be practicing drawing more animals, it would seem!
