Our SVS Virtual Studio 🎄DECEMBER 2020🎄
@Gary-Wilkinson very nice
hey there I'm absolutely new here and it's great to have a spot to just post about what I'm working on.
Currently, I'm taking a brief break from original work and doing what I call fanart week, it's a week of illustrations showing my rendition of a tv show, or a movie that I'm a fan of and for this week, I chose avatar the last airbender!
I'd love to get to know more of y'all on this platform and how it works!
super grateful for this outlet :]]]

@krish-iyer Hi and welcome. I like to watch avatar and the legend of Korra... yip yip
In terms of the forum (which is what I thought when you asked about plateform), you can follow/heart specific people to see what they post when they post something, you can make your own thread about introductions, ask for feedback, start a conversation about a topic, and you can work on class work with others or tag along with ones already started that invite others. And of course feel free to reply to other threads. The reply button at the end of all the posts of a thread creates your own post to that thread while what I just did (under your specific post and made a personal reply), the arrow up is for likes, etc.
Hope this helps a bit.
Continuing to practice pet portrait pieces. This one in watercolour. Background is a bit of a mess tho but that's life
I'm chipping away at illustrating a story my friend wrote (which involves princesses with big hair styles). This has been fantastic practice for me. I feel like I have no idea what I'm doing, but I just keep going ahead with everything I can do.
I've also been having some fun with felting tiny creations in walnut shells:
@Heather-Boyd thanks so much!
this helps a lot!
I've been a listener of the svs podcast for over a year now and I've been hearing so many great things about this forum so I'm really happy to finally have bit the bullet and joined in. Looking forward to more interactions here!
My challenge this December is to finish my 4-page comic project, that's been dragging for a while. It's a "comic-clip", a song put into comic. I chose "Sultans of Swing" from the Dire Straits, one of my favourite bands from my youth.
Here are the two finished pages (photos from my mobile, not good quality). The technique is sepia color pencil (Caran D'Ache Prismalo).
Page 1 (hmm this is not the fully finished product, I have since completed the tree):
This is WiP pencil for page 2:
And these are thumbnails for page 4. On the left one version of the full page, on the right a rework of the bottom part of the page that I like much better.
@jdubz fire underwater... what an intriguing concept
@Cayleen oh my gosh those are adorable.
@burvantill Lol, thank you!
@Jeremiahbrown this yeti's face is amazing, it has a lot of personality. Why aim for cute?
@burvantill thank you :)))

Also I wanted to share some work of my own too
I've been experimenting getting textures and finishes using shadows and highlights
On this particular one, I experimented trying to make different colors look fitting as either skin or some sort of bionic finish on this cyborg character.
I gotta say, I'm pretty happy with how this experiment turned out although there's loads of room for improvement!
Are there any other ways I can experiment with getting texture on skin and making colored skin tones?
let me know!
