Sailor Saturn Chibi Watercolor

 

 

Dear mother of pearl! Oh hi there you. It dawned on me yesterday that I can’t find any of my larger point illustration pens in size .5 or .8. I can’t outline in 0.05 or less. So I thought, why not try outlining in the acrylic paint?

Seems like something to try. Lo and behold, a bit of water and a size 4 paintbrush works wonders. I like the flow of the brush, slightly wet with water rather than it being purely saturated with acrylic paint.

 

Some watercolor has been added!

Hotaru is completed~ I must say this giddiness is more Chibi-usa than Hotaru but I like drawing characters out of character. Haha.

And lunatic charm cheeks~
So I may have gone a tad bit far with the blush. Oh well.

Zephyr, the elf princess

Zephyr-sama! You shall be a great leader one day — stop teasing your brothers please!

Zephyr is a princess of an underworld. The species of ogres and elves is vast when it comes to appearances. Some will literally give you nightmares if you look at them(they kinda enjoy that ability though.) Others, like Zephyr, you can look at all day.

Zephyr is not only looks, she’s aiming to be a great queen who rules with an iron fist. Kindness and fairness is also of utmost importance for Zephyr-sama. Zephyr has a tendency to enjoy fighting and cooking. One she excels in and the other– well let’s say the residents of the castle has had better digestive days.

Zephyr is an OC(original character) of mines. There’s not much story. I just enjoy making illustrations of her.

She had a couple of different hairstyles.

Her skin is lighter because I don’t feel like mixing a proper brown at the cafe using pan watercolor. So yeah. She also has runes on her face. Definitely inspired by my recent Breath of the Wild game play on the Switch.

Behold– a cat girl!~

Because the world could always use another portrait of a cat girl.~

I love how I colored her in greyscale colours.

I’ve never done that before. If I ever wanted to not have colour I’d digitally take the color away, using a desaturation tool on a photo editing software.

Fan Art Friday’s!!! Lucy Heartfilia Watercolor

So I’m boarding the transfer bus this fine Thursday morning to college. The usual. I bring my sketchbook with no prior plan on what to draw.

While I wait for the bus to leave the terminal I ponder on what I want to draw. I want to search the Pinterest machine to inspiration but my LTE/3G connection is shot at the terminal. So it’s back to good old fashioned brainstorming.

Yeah nothing. No plans or desires came to mind. So I just started doodling a body. Then I remembered the advice of how to draw: Step one: Using your pencil on the paper make some marks.

The idea to draw Lucy came about fifteen minutes later. Luckily I was away from the terminal and could go into the Pinterest machine to search for reference photos.

Moral of this blog post,

As it pertains to drawing, when in doubt– just draw oppai anything.

It’ll come to you. Maybe. Hopefully.

Avatar art, new markers, and May Sketchbook Tour 

Two avatar art portraits of Gaiaonline users. One my own, another a user from a forum. 

So I like to color. I have been coloring some older artwork that I drew a few years ago and kept in a sketchbook. I drew them on computer paper so I couldn’t use my extensive set of watercolor to color them and I’ve grown distant from my Crayola waterbased markers. I began using alcohol based markers in 2017. I’ve bought a flesh Copic marker, as well as a Prismacolor one. I fell in love with them. However, I don’t have the budget for Copic or Prismacolor markers as far as sets go. Each marker costs $7 or so. Coloring is a hobby, I’m not making a single dime from any of my artwork. So I don’t want to spend a lot of money on them for my own entertainment. So I did what any budget conscious artistic consumer would do–search for alternatives! Yay! I came across these Ohuhu markers on Amazon. A set of 40 costs a little over $20. So I said yes(or I bought them). I like them and have very few gripes with them. The Ohuhu markers lack the ability to layer shadows well for lighter colors. Copic and Prismacolor ones did better in comparison. I can, however, use a nearby shade for shadows, as seen on Yaten. I used a gray Sharpie on her hair. Blending also works okay.

Here’s a short video of selected artwork from the months of May and April of 2017.

I absolutely adore Mark, the Galaxy haired alien dude. Yeah, he’s a dude. I outlined him in purple instead of my usual black and love how it turned out.

Anyways, keep making awesome art and keep up the good work!!
