Donate

pawcanada has started a donation pool!
39 / 2,396
I'm keen to extend the membership Toonartist gave me at Christmas, so I've decided to modify this donation pool to see if I can get the points necessary to do so.

If I can improve my art production process I may look at doing simple, basic, cheap points commissions but I will cross that bridge when I feel ready.

You must be logged in to donate.

General Update - 28/03/2015

Journal Entry: Sat Mar 28, 2015, 10:36 AM

General Things


Bloody hell... Has it really been a month since my friend's wedding and my last update? It feels like time has slipped past both slowly and swiftly.

To be fair, theses last few weeks I've found myself very drained and tired. More often than not when I sit in front of my computer to catch up with videos and blogs, as well as working on various pieces I find myself zoning out due to fatigue or something similar, and then not come to until some time between 10:30 and 11 pm and realise I need to go to bed. I'm not too sure if it's because of a bad sleep pattern or something similar but I have certainly felt like something is wrong. Still...

Artwork


As you may have seen last night, I uploaded a scan of the piece I am currently working on. Unlike a lot of my more recent wips and initial sketches, this one is actually purely pen and paper. As I said in the description, I'm trying to follow some advice CMBaggs has given me where I should try and draw more of the picture in my sketch pad before scanning and working on it digitally. While there are a number of issues I need to go back and revise (I'm likely to go back, re-draw it and then base the digital version off that) it felt good to actuallt draw detailing I normally leave for the digital stage. There are a number of unfinished pieces in my sketch books which are just the body of the person, lacking any clothes or details as my intention was to add that in after scanning it. Granted I do think this piece is far from perfect and there are a number of things I wish I handled differently, namely the face, hair and legs (I'm not counting the hand and feet placeholders :P) but I feel a sense of accomplishment from actually drawing that by hand rather than a fraction if it, then scanning and then adding it in.

I do also have two more Snow pictures in mind, one slightly more action orientated and another which I'll be using as a replacement for "Winter Walk" in my "Season Girls" series, where Snow is leaning on a balcony admiring a snowy sky. I wanted to finalise a new design before I went with that piece as I wanted a rough idea on how she'd look and what aspects of it would be covered by the position of her body.

Friend Features


Finally, I'm looking to revive an old idea I did last year, namely "Friend Features" to show off some of the newer artwork by my friends and the people I watch. Before anyone asks, no, you can't request a feature. I've got a list of people I want to feature and unless you do something to make it onto that list it won't be changing any time soon. First off is my good friend, and someone I've known for nearly ten years, Typhoon-The-Hybrid. We met on an old Sonic sprite comic site called Sonic Boom, where I had joined as "Staff" after losing some of my previous "homes" for one reason or another. He approached me, saying he was a long time fan of my work and asked if I had an avatar character he can use for the sites banner. One thing lead to another and a strong friendship was born. While sadly, despite us both living in England, we've never had the chance to meet up and have a piss up of epic proportions he's still a good friend and someone I always try and chat with whenever either of us have a moment. I'm a big fan of his art style and have enjoyed watching it grow over the years, and I hope 2015 will see him produce many amazing pieces :D

I am an beginner/amateur artist looking to improve his skills and develop his own cartoony style. I tend to focus more on original characters than anything else but may branch out when my skills are better.
