A mouse pad commissioned by a Tenchi Muyo fan! :D I’m a big fan, too!
Mouse pads are $20 + $2 shipping. Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you’d like one!
Marker on a blank mouse pad. Short, sweet, and pretty simple. I do a basic sketch in pencil, then do a light pre-inking to neatly color and not smudge, then ink on top with marker.
Ideas 1 and 2 are like an oversized trading card, the front has my image in a very SUPERHERO COMIC ARTIST EXTREME pose, and the back has “stats”, which is my contact information, for the most part, and strengths/”weaknesses” (Strengths: pencil, marker, bright colors; Weaknesses: no wifi, broken glasses). I can have different character drawings, or more self-portraits, and they can be collectible, if folks so desire. Idea 3 puts two postcards together to make one large image, so they’re collectible, too; they’re also supposed to work individually. These ones have an opposites theme.
I’d have them at conventions, and I want to send them to art directors at magazines, companies, etc. I’m also thinking of having a less-cartoony, more “serious” card/set of cards, with a brand new drawing, or a collection of artwork with some kind of border, not entirely sure, but NOT BORING!
Sokka for the win!
Hello, hello! I bring you all a colored version of the line art for the piece I’m submitting to the Tata Gala’s breast cancer-charity juried show. I would really like feedback on this during the week, because I plan on submitting it by Tuesday or Wednesday. The deadline is October 1st, and I want to be in before then!
Check out my last post for more information on my rationale for the subject and color ideas.
So, without further ado, and with a disclaimer for those who wish not to have artful lady parts displayed too soon on their screens at work or school, here it is!
Hello, all! Tonight I’m posting the line art for a drawing I’m submitting to the Tata Gala juried show. Since it’s juried, I’ll either be in the gallery shows themselves (there are two), or, if the judges don’t choose to hang it up as a physical piece, it may appear in the online gallery. Either way, part of the entry fee goes toward their crusade for breast cancer research and I’m totally cool with that.
The drawing is a caricature of myself. A lot of the imagery I’ve seen in the show includes thin/fitI wanted to submit an image of a curvier, more heavyset woman, who is still having fun with her body and is proud to be a woman. The look on her face is surprised, but not afraid or self-conscious, just fun.
I want to color it, but I’m not sure how. I think flat, pop art-like colors would be fun, to play up the positivity of the image and the show itself.
I’m posting a thumbnail instead of the entire image for the sake of you viewers who don’t want even artful lady parts gracing your computer at work or school. Click for the full-size view at your own discretion.
I colored a sketch from a couple years ago to work on backgrounds and light/shadow values with color. Of course, it’s in marker, because markers and I are art BFFs. This is also a step closer to creating my own concept art backgrounds. Pencil, Copic+Prismacolor marker on top of a printout of the sketch, Faber-Castell technical pen. Let me know what you think! I always encourage comments/constructive criticism!
Also, question: should I keep image-linking from here to DeviantArt? Who likes/doesn’t like that?
I loved drawing this, too! Psychedelic TARDIS spin-cycle awesome!
FREAKING AWESOME!!! One of my most favorite projects I’ve done to date!
