Oh Mah Guudness

I can't believe my lame fan art actually made it to the gallery--he's really nice to his fans:

Still Working/Sidetracked

Sidetracked with:

Working on this still:

Trying to clean up the line quality (is a bit tedious). Trying to improve on the way I typically do these sorts of drawings. :p

Silver Moon Creations

For all the three people that read this, check out my friend's Etsy shop. She makes girly things...and what not. But I'm proud of her so I'm advertising it here!

Used Gimp For The First Time!

And I'm getting the hang of it. I miss having the toolbox and the work space linked and the Navigator feature Photoshop has but I like it otherwise. I worked on a birthday card for someone yesterday. Reference pictures for this:

I didn't quite finish but I showed what I had. Started out with blue lines for sketchy times, as usual:

Made notes for accessories on the side (I think I forgot a few things, even). This one will be challenging but challenges are good, right? Anyways, I drew lines:

Had to redo these twice--I still plan to go back and change the face (I'm worried it doesn't look feminine enough. Also, I just got some of the facial proportions wrong). Okay, okay--flat color's next (usually my favorite part)

Adding color helps me see stuff better--I also added a colored background just to see if the white covered parts completely---I don't intended to use this monochromatic background for long (it'd be nice to draw a plane/Macross mobie suit in the background or a docking port or something.) Anyways, I added more layers after that:

Layers: Shadows, Visor, Makeup (yes, makeup)--I still need Highlights, though. More later this morning before I go to work! Not finished but I won't lie--I'm feelin' smug. There's a lot that needs to be done to this!

Updated My Site

At last!

I'll be doing more art works now and today, I think I'll try some 2D animation to add to my arsenal! :O

As for 3D...I'll have to borrow an external hard drive to bring my Maya stuff from my laptop to my desktop and work with my old characters and/or download some free rigs from CGTalk (I used Bloke and lot and messed around with the Andy rig a bit)

My newest drawing on deviantART

I'm thinking one drawing a day/week and one project a month (project: animation or any drawing with multiple characters and elaborate drawing, like The Weird Family Breakfast thing).
