oc

 

This is a piece I had done earlier in the year, but had forgotten to post here on the site. Whoops.

 

But yes, this is a digital redraw of a piece I had done in 2009 on paper. I used my Cintiq on this one to redraw it, to great effect. I loved how it turned out and think its pretty interesting I actually finished this, as the original paper drawing was a WIP I didn’t complete.

 

To be honest, I really like how this came out. Especially with my better drawing skills, Jennifer really came to life here. Here’s that I can do her greater justice in the near future.

I’m behind on these things, but I have a couple OC’s that I had scoured off Twitter to draw. This was one of them.

 

This is 8Bit_Witch’s OC of herself, used as her avatar for streaming/art. I wasn’t really planning on doing it in this style, but it kind of just happened. I was real impressed with it, as it was the first time I had drawn such a figure in a really long time. Like, years. I felt accomplished I was progressing once again in my art journey, as a goal is to properly draw figures so that I can tell stories.

Yesterday artist raikoart jumped on board the #drawthisinyourstyle challenge. Basically you draw a given character in your own style when they use the hashtag. As people loved his sci-fi secret agent Tess, raikoart decided to call out and see who’d be up to the challenger with her:

 

 

I answered the call and did Tess as best as I could, in my most common styles. I mostly was light-hearted in my approach, even referencing a mischievous Orthin from Stars in Shadow hiding from Tess in the webcomic panel, having stolen a bunch of Snickers (another running joke with the character).

This was an old drawn piece that I had done in my sketchbook back at ETSU, but decided to do over and give it a shot in digital a few years later. I had bought a bunch of brush packs in an attempt to paint better, and gave a few of those a shot here. These were all oil-painting type brushes, and I think they gave the effect I was looking for quite amply.

A couple years back, I was trying to get a story project going, based on some friends I had known at the time. I had even roped said friends into doing a cosplay with me, which turned out okay I think. I kind of made OC’s based on them and had started to put a faint storyline together.

 

Unfortunately it kind of bombed and I just swept it under the rug for a bit, but I recently decided to try to bring it back to life and reinvent it. While I successfully remade it with different characters, one character that still stuck with me that I wanted to keep, and that was based on Pri, the Steampunk mechanic.

 

Amy Clark was doing commissions at the time, so we both happily worked out a commission showing her character in a new, better style. I was real happy with it, and was able to successfully reinvent this new version into someone I had thought of.

 

Lineart by Amy Clark. Character’s namesake based off of Pri. Coloring by me.
