2 WIPS

I was going to do some homework and then play some Mass Effect – not necessarily in that order – when my Xbox circle went three parts red. I decided to post some WIPs I’m working on and off on, instead.

Focus on the “off” part of that last sentence. Bah, I wish I had the time to work on this one more.

Started this last year, you can see the first WIP I did over here. You’ll notice the quality didn’t improve but the picture got bigger. Anyway, this gentleman is an OC and he’s kind of a backstabbing, neurotic bad guy. What’s missing [aside from the clothes, appropriate proportions, talent and a background] are a peppering of scars to complete his McNasty look. I should probably give him a bloody nose. He tends to get hit a lot – and he deserves it too – but it would knock him down a peg you know. Wipe that stupid smug expression of his ugly face. I mean, look at his stupid loungy pose and his stupid cancer-stick. Don’t you just want to shove him into a wood chipper? I know I do.

On a slightly less insane homicidal aggressive note, here’s a WIP that’s not really a WIP because it has no bearing on anything; the flats aren’t even right. I just liked how symmetrical it looked I guess. To be honest, I’m not really sure why I saved the image at all. But what can you can do?

I’ve made a terrifying, angry beast man surrounded by a beautiful, low opacity bouquet.

Some of you may have noticed I’ve finally put up banner images on both my site and my LJ. For the record, this is what my site banner looks like. The greyscale is just be temporary until I have time to colour the lines. It’s been ages since I’ve had an LJ though, and already 3 whole years [wow!] since I’ve had my site. Neither have ever had proper banners and it just couldn’t wait any longer.

Anyway, without further ado, I present to you my lines. When I’m done colouring this, I’ll upload a walk through so you can all see how crappy my sketches start out.

Today’s bust of the season features Zoë, a character you may have already seen in the comic. I had fun with the line weights, though I can see a few spots where I should have done better but all in all this isn’t a bad start to the new year. In the last post I talked about how this image is similar to the first picture I drew in 2010. At the same time, it’s still different enough that I don’t feel like I’m regressing. While Coraline certainly has more of a realistic touch, Zoë here has more of an ‘American’-styled lineart feel. Or at least I hope it’s American-ish, because I’m really trying to move away from the anime style I so easily sketch in.

The snowflakes are kind of gaudy looking I know, but I like to think that they make it less appealing to people who want to borrow my lines without crediting. Also, I figure that since I live in Winter Wonderland Canada, it’ll be snow season for at least another 3-5 months. That should give me enough time to draw up a new spring banner. This drawing too didn’t end up at all how I planned. Originally there were no flowers. Originally this was supposed to be a simple, quick and dirty, black haired girl for me to practice inking. It became Zoë when I started getting a little creative with my lines up in the hair. On the bright side, in changing up the character, I’ve decided to add some details to liven up her face in canon. Zoë will now have a piercing – she takes out for work [so no retcon needed hahah] – and handful of beauty marks sprinkled all over. Her chin is expected to be the most square of all my lady SP characters too.

It’s still January, so that means the new year’s still new.

I’m back for another semester at commerce school and not yet behind in anything, so the horizon is bright and inviting. For me, there’s still this hopeful feeling permeating every single day. You can be productive, I’m telling myself, and better yet, I’m believing it.

sketch

Just a quick oil pastel sketch. First time using the medium.  Did not turn out how I had planned, but still alright for a first try. I like the colors. It was supposed to be Gabby, but I don’t know what happened.

Shoddy scan,  cause the image is in my sketchbook and I couldn’t be bothered to make an effort. … And yes,  that is seran wrap on the picture.

It’s 3: 22 in the morning as I post this, and I’m sure I will regret the picture when I look at it again.

You know, I’m really starting to like this blog thing. Haha, it must be the sleek blog design, nothing else.

In any case, this is another older picture with a background I’m still rather fond of. The Bg is nothing more than a stock pattern and a bad combination of dodge and burn, but in my my humble opinion it reminds me of sunshine on something golden. This of course has absolutely no relevance to the character. But this picture isn’t so bad for my second try at digital coloring eh?

The character by the way is Damian Grey. Because I work solely on a laptop the colors i see are very different than that on a different monitor. If his hair looks really green, its not supposed to. His hair is supposed to be black with just a little green at the tips. (I’m already aware of the crazy bad over amplified anime hair) I need to draw a better picture of this fellow. I’m think his hair will become more brown black (even though I loved the green black color combo) and maybe he should loose the eye patch. Still not totally sure on that one. Oh well. I like having the comparison of old pieces with the newer ones I’m going to post soon.
