Tis the season to be... jolly?

So I'll admit this is probably the least magical holiday season yet the way things are going now, but none the less its alright! I'm coming down with something I think so it was hard to draw at all, I basically just sat down with my sketchbook opened and wasted my time on the internet instead lololol


So here's what I managed to draw

Derp faces or what, maaan my head is pounding

and more comfort zone art because I had to draw something

Once I am back to full health I want to start focusing on male anatomy and animal anatomy!

More soon!

Here's what I drew today!

 30 second poses in ink

Some 30 second poses in thick orange high lighter. Using the high lighter I often finished before the 30 seconds were up.

Some 15 second poses in blue high lighter

Some 30 second poses in blue highlighter, these ones had clothes though!

Tried my hand at drawing some of my characters again, had a lot of fun! I really want to get back into it!

Finally a study I started this morning, not done yet obviously but I'm not hating how it looks atleast!

 More soon!

Aaaaaaalrighty then.

WOW HAS IT ALREADY BEEN A WEEK SINCE MY LAST UPDATE I'm in awe at how fast time is going by. But somehow its going by slowly too.... Work has been busy and hectic due to the holiday season, I haven't even had time to enjoy the time of year yet! Its hard to get home and open my sketchbook when I have so many other things to do and prepare and christmas blahblah. I'm going to get back in the swing of things as best as I can, updating every other day and such, but I'm not going to FORCE myself to draw something when I know it would only be quick and crappy.

I have tried to sit down and just draw but nothing ever comes out. Its kind of like an art block I suppose, I just don't know what to draw. Studies seem to be the only thing I can handle, but I'll need to branch off from drawing only referenced stuff for a while. I'll do some of that next update for sure!

Anyways! Here are some 30 second colored pencil studies.

30 second studies in ink

I noticed that when I was doing 30 second poses in ink that I would often finish before the 30 second were up. So, I tried my hand at some 15 second poses!

When I was younger I wasn't the kind of person to use many references, I never straight up copied art styles or anything like that either. Nowadays I use references all the time for my figure studies, but why not my art style? So! I popped The Incredibles into my laptop, paused the screen and copied the characters. I absolutely love the style, definitely going to keep studying it!

 Digital art has been really slow for me lately, I'm just so used to sitting down and drawing quick studies that I'm having trouble starting something I know will take many hours. I guess I'll just muscle my way through it! 

So here's a wip of something random, a goat.. looking at other goats int he distance.. yep.

Some bff birdies on a branch

And I started adding color to this!

Hopefully more soon!

Chug chug chuggin'

I still can't believe how fast time has been flying by. I'm barely in the christmas spirit yet and we're already the 8th!

Anyways, I've been practicing my figure drawing and gesture drawing a lot and I like to think that I've made some progress!

Some quick figure drawings! Didn't use refs and it shows! 

More refless stuff

My very poor attempt at drawing hands quickly, bahahahahaaa so saaaad! 

Still reading Hampton's book and still loving it! I'm trying to learn how weight and balance and all that good stuff works.

And lastly a wip I start just for fun! 

More on saturday!

I'm back! Haha didn't keep to the updating every other day thing for very long, but I knew I wouldn't! Been so busy the last couple of days I didn't have time to even open my sketchbook. I'm starting again as of today but I'm guessing weekends are going to continue to throw me off track! As long as I draw as often as I can that's all that really matters!

Some quick figure studies

I'm working on putting together my portfolio but I find there really isn't much variety in my works. So I'm trying get some more traditional art in there, mainly studies and such. I started this one which isn't finished. I really have to work on the values and all that, not too happy with how its looking but I never am with my traditional art anyways!

And a fist study which I'm not too fond of either, gotta rework this one too!

I'd also like to make a painting demonstrating my (very limited) knowledge of perspective! Just a random draft I started, some guy fishing or something, yep.

More soon!
