knightworm asked: I wanna say I love your art style. I found you on DA way back when, and I want to let you know I still look forward to your posts
wow my DA years were awful thanks for sticking around through that!!!!!!
thanks for liking my draws it means a looooot :>
front page in my new sketchbook
sometimes it hits me hard that i’d never be considered a very high-level artist but if i can still make fun drawings of my babies then i still have something to be proud of
i hope i still like this picture for a long time because even if theres problems with it im still very proud of it at the moment :’>
decided to redraw some old manga pages to study them, and went with Cutey Honey for my first choice, and i wanted to draw her in her OVA appearance since i looooooved those so much
really happy with how these turned out, i’m gonna try a bunch more when i can! also any comic suggestions (from any country and can be in color too!!) that you throw at me are appreciated, i wanna draw a whole lot of comics!
some sketchbook drawings, and drawing thoughts (thought this was worth the artblog post)
the first 2 pages are some expressions and other stuff to help myself draw my own characters more consistently and just have more fun in general with having them emote and actually do stuff, which i think turned out quite well, esp the Ami faces
the last 2 are the very first page in the book which was in 2011, and the last page in the book, in 2013 because WOW i took a long time to fill out this whole sketchbook!!!! this was my first “real” sketchbook where i tried to learn and have fun and i think i can do even better in my next one! but anyways, i dont think my drawing on the last page is the best i could do, but seeing how much better it is than the first regardless does a lot for my self confidence! i know i have countless things that i know i can do better but its nice to see what youve already been getting better at. heres to a more artistic year ahead of me!!
wanted to do a year-in-review of my art too since i saw some cool artists doing it
looking back on this, theres some drawings here that i think still look ok, but nothing here makes me particularly proud of my drawings. theres maybe the odd attempt at some backgrounds or different techniques a few times in this year, but ive just been drawing girls standing around on solid BGs for like every drawing. ive been struggling to get myself to try new things but i’d like to work on this in the coming year, if i can get myself pointed in some kind of direction. i need to make some actual work worth showing to artists i look up to, something that has an actual purpose!!! not just a “haha look i drew this naked girl”
hopefully ill start some comics of mine next year and really get the ball rolling, ive had a lot of these characters for a while and i havent given any reason for anyone to care about them yet!!!!! i really need to crack the whip and actually improve in a lot of the fundamentals i know im still lacking in that all storytellers and comic artists need to have. wish me luck guys, if its anything like this year im gonna need it!
