2016 Redraw

It’s about that time for one of my art redraws!

tuxedoash

…Okay, this one’s a little embarrassing to share. I was looking for an older sketchbook that still had some blank pages in it (because I can’t bring myself to use any of the newer blank sketchbooks I have) and found a bunch of really old drawings. Pokemon, Sailor Moon, Dragonball Z, Powerpuff Girls, Neopets…a pretty good representation of what I was interested in as a kid/preteen. I did quite a few crossover drawings, like this “Tuxedo Ash” (which, BTW, I’m pretty certain is not an original idea of mine).

I also drew comics back then, but let’s not talk about those! >\\\\<

SO. This drawing. 15 years (!!) has sure made a difference, especially with proportion and composition. I’m still struggling with color and backgrounds….and I still have no idea how capes (fabric in general, for that matter) work.

2016 was another slow drawing year for me, apart from Tam Team Adventures. Oh well. Just gotta keep doing what I can 🙂

Howzit?

aloladoodle

Bye guys I’m going to Alola 😛

In other news, next livestream will be this Friday! Might do multiple short sessions over the course of the day, but there will definitely be one around 9 PM PST!

Art Trades, Requests and Doodles

(Actually, there’s only one of each.)

roskoarttrade

First, my half of an art trade with Strawberry! This is her OC Rosko, who–well, actually I don’t know anything about this character 😛 He strikes me as a bit of a trickster though– pulling pranks and bounding away while shouting something like, “Catch me if you can, losers!” You know, just like what real cats do.

I’m trying to get back to a more painterly style. It’s just more comfortable and feels more intuitive to me, which makes the process a bit faster.

Oh! And make sure you check out Strawberry’s half of the trade! She drew a really cool picture of P4 from Tam Team Adventures!

lucina

Next is a drawing of Lucina from Fire Emblem: Awakening that I did for my brother. I’m not particularly pleased with how it turned out, so I may give it another go sometime in the future :/

tothemoon01

And finally, a doodle of Drs. Neil Watts and Eva Rosalene from the game To the Moon! If you like story-rich games, I definitely recommend this one 🙂 To the Moon is about two doctors who are hired to help a man fulfill his dying wish to go to the moon. It’s an artificial process, in which the doctors must alter the man’s memories in order to make him believe that he lived to accomplish his life goal.

The story is well told and at times very thought-provoking and emotional. And funny. I think I’d have cried through it if I wasn’t laughing so hard at the doctors’ sarcastic and ill-timed jokes.

That’s all for now, I think. I’m trying to push myself to draw more so I can post more often 😉
