Not Really Good

I'm giving this blogging thing a spin. So it'll be filled with nonsense, I'm afraid. Otherwise I'm just a silly doodler who pretends to be an artist.

More Gnote Screenies
I really enjoyed coloring my comfort doodles in this nifty app. But sometimes the colors dont look right on different monitors, hehe. I also forget to save Dx and that’s how I lost the copy of the stork painting I did almost a week ago. I still draw on the write app, because I want a vector based format of my linework and just send it to Layer Paint once it’s good.

About these doodles. One’s a yokai called a Raiju the other is a character I made when I was younger. You know, that certain phase when you… NEVER MIND AURAGRUUGAHHH GLAB HAMSTERHUEYANDTHEGOOEYKABLOOEY!!!!!!!! Actually I still like to draw in that style.

Layer Paint HD!!!!
Very handy for super busy days and big moves. Now I can finally practice in peace. I have no idea why I waited a bit before getting this. I’m still focused on vector art, but I can make quick color studies with it. Hey look! A dapper stork! There are some cultures who consider storks as a symbol for good luck, imagine that. I just think they’re fun to draw.

I Need..

..MORE BUBBLES. Oops! I mean Resolution Free drawing and painting software, like Mischief In my life. I don’t care if brushes are limited. I can only dream that 61 Solutions can make a mobile version for android, but one step at a time. I wish the developers luck on the software’s improvement.

And If anyone noticed why I’ve been posting tf2 are for the past weeks, it’s because I MISS playing with my friends! 0__0

A Little…

…Heart to heart? Waait, what? Oh, haha it’s the Medic with a heart. That somehow has eyes and stuff. It’s a doodle from a long time ago I decided to use as a practice piece.

I’m still in practice mode, I think. It’s pretty hard for me to stay in the middle ground between cel-shading and hyper-realistic shading. I want to give it a refined look at the same time a bit of goofiness. Ugh, I know those two things don’t go well together, but I have to experiment. Not to mention learn to paint lit scenes, and refine my sense of depth.

Lunch FACE!

I hate it when my workplace has adobe Illustrator cs6 It makes me jealous. So, here’s a sniper face I drew during my lunch break. I’m having a hard time with skin tones, so I practiced a bit.

Plus, I feel stupid that I don’t know how to reply to a tumblr notes comment.

Gentlemen it’s not mine, just…

…confession time. This is one of the many reasons why I watched Pacific Rim. It’s from a Ps1 game called Omega Boost. I was planning to do a Fan art, but I’m still not good with the robots. Maybe someday. I was too young to understand the plot back then, I just watched my brother play.

By the way before anyone asks, the music is “Shade” by Feeder.

Fox Eating a Bowl of Steak blah Practice

I’m still practicing this technique. I’m trying to make it look less hyper-realistic and more cartoon friendly. It’s not that hard, but I need to work faster. And er… my choice of subject is due to a failed attempt at making a comic strip involving a fox and a stork.

A Dodomeki
I just felt like drawing another yokai in Illustrator. It has been a while isn’t it? This oddity is called a Dodomeki I think it translates to “Hundred Eyed Demon.” Imagine walking on a dark path and meeting a nice young lady who offers to give you directions then seeing a hundreds of eyes under her sleeve?
Forgive me, but I am bad at surfing the internet for legit folktales about the dodomeki. I found one regarding pickpockets, but it doesn’t cite the source material so I’m stuck. Maybe I should get more books about Japanese supernatural beings.
Wait, does this count as a monster girl?

How do I…

…start a drawing? Something like this. It’s cleaner than usual since it’s a fan-art and the Scout here already has an established design. My initial doodles are mess of doodle-hell when I try to design something original.

And I am not sorry he isn’t drawn sexy enough, nyuck nyuck nyuck!

Just a Warm Up
It’s just practice. I may have made the head too big. I this this was just made under an hour? I forgot.

Interstellar Being!
Or, when fooling around becomes inspiration. This is based on my personal opinion so don’t take it too seriously. I always feel proud of my doodles than my finished work. Time and time again it’s bugged me. Then out of nowhere it hit me, no, IT DROPPED KICKED ME IN THE MEMBRAINZ, I feel better about my work when I’m less critical about it. By critical I mean minding every single detail and thinking about how things could go wrong. This is tricky to explain, but I’ll try:
Critical analysis of one’s work should be done during practice, and not on an actual planned artwork. It interrupts the flow. I practice to make sure things don’t go wrong, so I will feel confident(EFF’NG INVINCIBLE) when making finished pieces. 
Good grief, it took me this long to figure out why I’m not happy with my art. Not to mention learning to be less hateful opens the treasure chest of inspiration. No, really. I just figured out how to get more inspired :U
I have a lot more to learn. Like this nifty new technique I used in this piece. I like this cartoon-friendly(?) painted-style look.

Up next! When fooling around becomes inspiration. And yes, that is from my Doodle or Die account. I can’t believe that game made me a better artist. Oh, the stuff some of the users want you to draw…

Illustrator Practice at work. The new technique is tearing me apart!  I love cel shading, but this is so much fun!

I Fail at Vector Art
Ok not really, I’m just experimenting with paint techniques in Adobe Illustrator. I think I’ll start with something generic. I m not sure if I’ll stick with this style, it takes a while to finish. Oh well, I can always take a long-shortcut. By long-short cut I mean PRACTICE LIKE HELL UNTIL IT BECOMES SH*T EASY.
