When I opened my Discord server months ago for buddies, my pal Taranava had made the suggestion I draw my bug girls as baristas, one of them brandishing weapons. I loved the concept and obliged recently, and have now pronounced the two as the server’s official mascots. I’ve yet to give them names, but I think they’re a bit too inspired by Gura and Ina from Hololive.
For practice today I did some more observational drawing. I picked Robocop’s head because of a meme my DnD friends were passing around, and because of Mortal Kombat 11’s DLC.
Did this earlier today, trying to get a hand of drawing a bit different. Still have a long ways to go; despite the virus, making it a goal this year to at least change my art style up. While working one day, had the urge to draw Vak’shi in different clothes in a more casual pose. I’m glad I did do that, I’m happy with it.
This is essentially a joke image, done in the style of a campy retro poster. I’m a bit off mark with the look, but it’s to the point that it carries the joke I think.
Long story short, I went to the Knox Asia Festival 2019 with a to-be relative of mine. She sported a 50’s style sundress for the occasion, looking pretty spiffy actually. However she got some curry on it, and somehow stained her slip in the process. Both of us were baffled but found this hilarious, and joked that the curry as some sort of monsters out of those old movies. Hence, the joke was born.
It’s something we still laugh about now and then, and I got her permission to put this together. Hope you guys get a laugh out of 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.
I’m sorry I don’t have the footage for the character to go for this (I didn’t plan to do a video of this), but I was doing free drawings for people on Reddit, and I offered u/concerned_squirtle to do a full backgrounded piece for his character. I figured it was good practice for me instead of relying on stock photos for backgrounds, so stab at it I did. This was the result.
I know another Redditor really liked the noir look of this, and that is exactly what I was aiming for. While her attire doesn’t match, that was the tone I was going with. Now just add some old city jazz from this, and you got yourself a story.
The original art piece can be seen here!
This was a character I drew in my old style, for u/concerned_squirtle during a Reddit request thread. While I did some initial doodles for him, I picked one of those and did this as a full scene, which even included an art process video. Definitely enjoyed working on this one.
I was recently commissioned by Playstation-bunduru to draw a dog in a Jamaican rasta hat. We talked some details and this was the final result; he was really happy with it to say the least. I felt awesome as well, as this was the first time I had done an art commission for 2019.
This took a bit longer than expected due to scheduling, but this was a piece I did based on this piece, where the OP’s friend had drawn him some sharks. I offered to digitize them and this was the final result.
The 3rd shark is my doing, as a free gift for taking too long with the original offer.
My first entry into Inktober, Poisonous! I know it seems like it’s just a pitcher plant (and those drown their prey rather than poison them), but I thought it’d be a good concept. So I made a poisonous one with dangerous toxins wafting out of it, along with some poisonous berries!
