2013 Sketches Weeks 16-17

I sketched Lissa a couple of days before Fire Emblem: Awakening was released in Aus:
Fire Emblem - Lissa
Oh hey, lineart
I started on her lineart, but all in all, I achieved zero this week.

I just swing around feeling bad about drawing fanart all the time.
Blah blah, I should be more of an original special butterfly, etc etc.

2013 Sketches Weeks 14-15

Monster High - Abbey Bominable
and a close-up
Finished the Abbey commission~
I really enjoyed the colours in this one. I worked the whole thing in Photoshop, and my process has changed significantly.
Yeah maybe
There's a contest I might enter this in.
The contest being the reason I drew it at all.
Same story behind this one - it's got a lot of issues though.
I actually took some scans today so here's the plan I had for her outfit:
I actually like this
oops, this is just a photo, haha
I planned out her design better, and tried a new angle anyway.

Now, some more Monster High related stuff:
This is actually from February
I had a random urge to design a Monster-High-type character a while back just for fun - a Gingerbread Witch, hehe~
some outfit ideas
 These are some designs for customising Monster High dolls (the above would use a Draculaura).
and another (sans feet, haha)
 I badly want to do a custom face-up - all I really need is some sealant.
For now, I'll do some sewing.

2013 Sketches Week 13

Monster High - Lagoona Blue
Finished the Lagoona commission~
Abbey is undergoing adjustments.

I spent the Easter weekend at my friend's place painting and eating delicious food.
Hence late post, haha~

2013 Sketches Weeks 11-12

Oookay, I've been quite productive this fortnight~
I had two commissions last week to work on:
Monster High - Lagoona Blue
and Abbey Bominable
I just have to tweak Abbey's boots, and I'll start colouring the ghouls tomorrow. ♥
I'm very pleased with them (happily, my client likes them too!)
Icarus and the Fish
Yes, I've drawn this guy before - I need to start writing some things regarding this down.
Ignore the weird framing on it for now; I really need want to finish this.

And now the requisite Tales spam:
Note - there may be potential SPOILERS for Graces at the end.
Richard's High School DLC
Umm, yeah, when Richard gets back in my party, I want... to get him... more costumes... orz
Sophie, Asbel, Cheria and Hubert
This is what my battle party currently looks like, haha~
They reduced the prices for the DLC in Australia so I caved and got a costume each for Sophie and Asbel (frankly, I would never have bought any at the original prices).
I can add to my DLC collection slowly maybe? T_T
Abyss - Peony, 'Jade' and Jade
I finally watched the Abyss anime too (it was really good).

Actually, I changed my mind again.
No more arts, that's it for now!

2013 Sketches Week 10

Working on chibi stocks this week - took a break and did some really productive poses:
and you know the rest
And now a lesson in not naming everything you draw.
I couldn't sleep and an entire life story unfolded
Chibi version

Eh, I'll be using the chibi version as an example for my stocks.

2013 Sketches Week 9

More tweaking is required, but I'm pretty happy with how this is going.
I want to do some 'proper' illustrations; I feel like I've gotten a bit lazy in some areas.
The dimensions are actually taller than this, although I like the framing of this crop.

So how about that watermark?
I also drew what felt like about a million chibis.
This is only 5 of them. orz
I'm going to be line-arting them all and releasing them as stock packs over on DeviantArt.
Hopefully at a steady pace, and soon!

2013 Sketches Week 8

A 2-3 hour TegakiE doodle.

It might just be Google, but nothing wants to load right now. Hopefully this works.

2013 Sketches Weeks 1-7

Weeeeell, long time no post. I had some serious art block for two months there.
That's not to say that I wasn't drawing, it's just that I was largely unhappy with everything I produced.
At least until this past week! So let's forge onward!
CA Cupid ♥
It's Monster High's Cupid for Valentines Day! This is a closeup, but you can find her artwork in full in my DeviantArt gallery.
PMMM - Mami Tomoe
 Mami love~! ♥♥♥
I did some furious late-night sketchbook drawing one evening, which broke that aforementioned artblock. One of the sketches was Mami posed similarly to this, and I really wanted to draw her up nice after that~
PMMM - Sayaka Miki
And then I thought of a pose for Sayaka - I do like swords.
I have to complete this set now for sure.
And I mean complete! Colours! Colours are necessary!
Wind Waker - Tetra
 It's the 10 year anniversary of The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker this year (in English).
I did some art-marathon type dealies for Ocarina and Majora's Mask, and I'm considering whether to do it again for WW.
Considering HARD.
Wind Waker Link
 So I did a couple of art-style-tests.
WW Link has the best eyebrows.
There was one more to post, but I just decided it's too ugly- hah!
It's a cute idea though, so maybe I'll try again~
Now, the usual sign-off with some Tales Of Graces F stuff, and the only halfway decent thing to come out of January for me.
Incidentally, I finally just got Sophie back while playing today. If you've played it, you know.
Finally. \o/
You know I really just want to get to the Future Arc~ ♥
