Wow holy crap, has it really been two months since I uploaded something in my art thread? Time to change that.
Here, have something stylised. That doesn't show up in my sketchbook very often.

I got tired of seeing my characters all dressed in very generic kinds of clothing (particularly after looking at aigis' pristinely dressed specimens) so I tried to specify a clothing style for once, but.. It just feels and looks so fake. And lame. That might have to do with the fact that I have the fashion sense of a prickley pear with no sense of fashion.
It remains something I'll have to keep practicing on.
(also, balloonhead incoming, sheesh)

I think they're looking cool, though I know how you feel about the weird feeling you get forcing something unfamiliar on your own work. It's a good thing in the end, I'm certain.

Are you using mechanical pencils? The way your line tapers off on the trousers on the left is just so gorgeous.

Thank you! (I know I find myself going "dayum" over those legs too)
But it's true, it feels really awkward to spend so much time on something that doesn't come naturally to me at all. I guess I should pull through that uneasy fase until it does become more spontaneous.
And yup, mechanical pencils. I used to use regular ones, but since I already draw quite sketchy it looks way cleaner with a permanently thin pencil tip. And no frustrating pencil shavings.

Very true. I am also completely converted, fuck sharpening. I'd be worried I'd end up part of some statistic that said 'on average artists spend 3 years of their life sharpening pencils' oh no no, mechanical clicks please. Aye, I love the way you drawwwwww gurl. Keep it up.

teach me to get such good curves in your lines ;(

Goddamn computer. The screen is breaking and I've been making backups like crazy because every day now I have a moment in which I fear for my hard drive. Same for my wacom, the cord is so worm I have to hold it in place (a place that changes daily) or it loses power and disconnects from my laptop, after which it takes a couple seconds to reconnect again.
I am so, so happy I got the Sketch Swap image finished with little trouble. I tried to work on a paid illustration though today, and that was just not happening.

I think you mean... ambi pur.

I watched the Blues Brothers again a couple days ago, and man, I never tire of that movie. So while listening to this, I scribbled their faces into my sketchbook. It's not the most original take, but whatevs.
Also, I think I might take up the saxophone again. Woop.

I've been drawing lots of faces. These are all ladyfaces at the moment. In order:
African-American, Japanese
Caucasian, Indian,
Turkish, Inuit.

Turkish face is a bit wonky but whatever.
I've been trying to come up with characters for a story of which I've known (and written) the beginning of a long time ago. But I don't know the middle and the end. I'm hoping I actually learn the rest of the story by sketching out potential characters, as well as practicing faces for if I should actually turn the thing into a full comic book.
Also for some weird reason I'm afraid to post the drawings of the main characters because I'm fucking in love with them and they should stay close and personal to me for the time being. So you can't see them. Nyeh.

Aw man, the left side of my faces is always a little higher than the right side. Bleh.

Anyway, middle-aged women! The most underrated and unused characters ever. What use is a woman who's gone beyond her prettiest and most fuckable stage but not yet old enough to be the warm, asexual, coockie-baking grandma we so love? Middle-aged women in comics mostly look like youths with a wider jaw or smaller eyes. And that sucks. In an attempt to learn how to draw middle-aged women that aren't plastic-surgeried supermodels, I present:
Caucasian, Caucasian,
African, African,
Chinese, Turkish

Was good practice.

Oh, and some other faces.
I challenged myself to draw bald, fat, and relatively androgynous heads and have them still look significantly different.
Also good practice.

Haha, no. I actually think of that face as a male face. Just a made-up, earring-wearing male.

Well, that your characters always have a quite detailed outfit on them, and that it seems like you have this huge stockpile of clothes and accessories in the back of your brain from which you can borrow to draw on your people. It makes your characters a lot more distinct and personalised, if that even makes sense.
I feel like the clothes I have in the back of my head are: generic sweater, generic T-shirt, generic jeans, allstars. You know?

I made a comic. I think it's the longest continuous comic I've made so far. I kind of couldn't stop drawing, it's quite personal and there's a lot of feels in there.
Buh.
It's also in the Art Portal.

I think this is the fucking girliest thing I've ever drawn. I thought it would be good colour-practice, just flopping colour around. Quick thing of around half an hour.
.. Also, her hair kinda looks edible. Right?

I was surprised by his pronunciation of ´amsterdam´, but I guess Belgians are able to do so. This song strangely enough reminded me of the most standard dutch meal; haricot verts with potatoes and a meatball, so french...were all fkkn french! idk I popped a molly

Hi guys, have a not very great self-portrait (it's way too elongated, why does this happeennn) to celebrate my triumphant return. To Newgrounds, but also to unemployment. Those two go together well!

Man, it's been so damn long since I tried life drawing again.. I seriously need practice.
