    Spent some time repainting this. Two of my favorite Christmas characters

  • Final notes from the Drawing Fundamentals course … really enjoyed it … started the Creative Composition one now. I did the intro but had to stop to do some sketching before work, and honestly, I wanted to keep going so much, that intro got me so excited πŸ™‚

    Played around with a lil 8 minute drawing challenge of Yoshi after lol I do think this is my favourite drawing exercise, it's not just fun, but funny ... also did some 30 second gesture drawing with QuickPoses.com and turned one into a lilSOPHIE character sketch πŸ™‚

    Skeleton guy I'm sculpting.

    As promised. I photographed on my camera but couldn’t find the connecting cable so back to my iPad. At least my table is cleaner!

  • @heather-boyd woohoo!

    Those blue cubes are so tasty looking, what did you use to do them? Love the texture.

    Your shapes are always so very crisp and clean; really nice. I also love the paint splashes and what not on your desk ... looks like a proper artists desk πŸ™‚

    Blue pencil crayons: a really old Canadian brand called Laurentien

    Haha that texture is a combination of my desk and the 4H pencil I tried to erase afterwards.

    Thanks, sometimes I clean my desk up and sometimes I leave it. I do likewise with my palettes. I have one from 1st year college loaded up with acrylic colours.

    πŸ™‚ I am excited for the next January contest, I am hoping one of the two works that I am slowly working through will be a fit. I hope you will participate as well.

    Your finished works are super detailed! I forgot to mention that. And your last posts on combining shapes have so much variety, I can get caught up in making things look like things and not just play around especially when I post things.

    Painted my skeleton guy.

  • @heather-boyd So the texture was a happy accident? πŸ™‚ That's even cooler now πŸ™‚

    I've not really looked into the contests, but you've got me curious now. Have you done one before Heather? Guess it could be a good way to practice some of the things from the studying sessions.

    Here's a couple images from the past week,

    The current state of my assignment piece …

    It's the best I can do at the moment, drawing from my imagination feels like a complete reset and really highlights how much I need to learn, but I'm really enjoying how fun it is … especially the thumbnail phase. My digital skills are super limited at the moment, but I did it digitally as I knew I would have to rescale things and play with stuff, I sense I should maybe have stuck to pencil and focused on value instead, but I'm gonna finish the rest of the videos than come back and redo this πŸ™‚

    Some lilSOPHIE sketches

    I'm using lilSOPHIE as an excuse to practice using a brush pen πŸ™‚ I've also started playing with her proportions a bit, I think the other squished version of her will be a lil-lilSOPHIE πŸ™‚

  • @sophie-lawson I like the character work on the bottom the drawing have good flow to them

  • Drafting up a handful of illustrations for my Step-Brother's Christmas gift; I'll be taking three of his go-to usernames and bringing them to life πŸ˜‰ Here's the first! (Divine Oranges)


  • @jabbernewt That gave me a laugh. What a fun Christmas present.

  • Working on padding my portfolio with more kid lit type stuff. Trying to get a lot more practice with expressions and posture. Did these on my lunch break today. 0_1545249728357_girl.png

  • Trying out maquettes after watching the video on them. Helping me figure out some character designs.

  • I hope everyone has had a great Christmas/holiday. Finished this about two weeks ago, had to wait before I could share this commission. β€œ Cats playing D&D”, one cat is missing an eye.


  • @adrian-k

    Where are the legs of the chairs in the back (under the table)?

    My my, I do like the cat in the green Elfen costume πŸ™‚ .

  • @heather-boyd the Base of the swivel chairs aren’t there. The camera I used is showing more highlights down there than there actually is. The base is pretty murky down there. I’ve switched the image to an alternate one.

    When I started this two weeks ago, I intended it to be a Christmas picture of mice singing carols to an owl in the woods but because of the busyness of Christmas, I ended up just drawing an owl! Imagine mice below the tree singing carols πŸ™‚

  • @adrian-k love this

  • SVS OG

    @adrian-k I love this. Nice job!
