  1. 1 hour speedpainting. Trying to get better with environments. While this piece isn’t a study, I will be doing more landscape studies  (when I have the time) so I can have more to look at in my illustrations. 1 hour speedpainting.

  3. Reupload of last night’s painting. Someone on /ic/ mentioned the face was over-rendered, which ruined the “cute” appeal I was aiming for - and it made total sense as to why I was so unhappy with the end result. Here’s an updated version with a softer face (also made the hat less saturated to match the background). Reupload of last night’s painting.

  5. Tried Feng Zhu’s method of "Chaos to Control;" starting with a scribbled mess and ending with a painting (improv painting). Ended with an abnormally tall alien walking in a snow-covered area that was originally a desert I guess.

  6. I honestly have no idea how idea of how I’m going to finish this. I’ve had three different changing ideas going on in my mind and I just can’t decide which one I want… I think I’ll just drop it here and call it a WIP.

  7. Really bad scans of my sketchbook just to hold off until exams are over. Haven’t been able to paint anything since my focus has been on studying, but when I give myself breaks, I’ll draw for an hour or two to let my mind rest. (Curse you chemistryyyy!)

  8. So even though this could be considered a “study” (here’s the photo), I realized half-way through it that the lighting caused the skin to be waaaay off from what it should be, seeing as how it’s a photo, which is why it’s very important to study from life rather than photos. Sure, photos are a great alternative if you don’t have anywhere/anything to study - but studying from life is so much better because you actually are observing how things work. Noticing how bad the lighting was in the photo because of the camera flash, I got frustrated and didn’t finish it, so that’s why it looks like a mess. But lesson learned!

  10. No Wings; No Flight.
Been meaning to paint my bat girlfriend for Valentines’ day, though, this was probably just an excuse to paint bewbs. (ღ˘⌣˘ღ) She’s actually been a character of mine since 2012, and this is my first painting of her. I’ll probably make a ref sheet of her soon, I dunno, we’ll just have to see if a personal character such as her becomes public or not. No Wings; No Flight.
