Sorry It’s been awhile

_SylviaA little more improvement. This is Sylvia, my OC, again. I keep changing her appearance, but I’m closer to what I want her to look like. She’s showing more of her personality in this sketch, so I’m really glad.

flying emma finishedAnother gift! I’ve never painted or drawn a falcon before. It took me a few hours of sketching and studying to get it decent looking. I kinda really gave up on painting it, though. But the messiness doesn’t look too bad, so whatevs.

I don’t really know what I’ve done over the past few months. The days are blurring together. I’ve sketched a lot. That’s about it, I think. I’m not on Paint Tool Sai as much anymore, but I’ll try more since it’s summer. Middle of summer actually….whoa. What is time??? Sorry I’m babbling.

Coming up next:

So I’m working on a birthday present for my friend and I might do something with that Sylvia sketch. I’d like to make something to go along with summer. That’d be nice. Until next time! (Which might take a long time)

Bye bye

So many sketches!

Hi! It’s been awhile. I’ve been working on lots of sketches and stuff. I’ve also spent plenty of time on Paint Tool SAI, and I’m learning more as I go along.

Today plus the past few weeks or so, I’ve filled more than half of my thick sketchbook (that I bought January!) Some pages hold my characters, but the rest are from reference photos. They’re not all manga style people either. I sketched animals, landscapes, furniture, and plants. I also practiced with vanishing points. (very helpful!) Then, today I spent time on sketching VOCALOID characters. I didn’t trace, I copied a drawing by observing a photo, (just being clear O.O) and it’s all for practice. It helped a lot. Here’s a drawing before today’s reference photo drawing.

meh sketchIt’s okay…but kinda boring to me.

And here’s a recreation of the same character after practicing today.

Yay sketchDon’t mind the shadows of faces behind her. I drew them too hard to erase completely =.=  I like her face a lot!

Below are some of the sketches I drew from reference.

Bonus! I love this guy’s pose, and his face. It surprised me how well this turned out.

So never stop practicing, and use the right side of your brain! (no time to explain, look it up if you’re  curious enough.) And there are no shortcuts to developing real skill.

See ya!
