Finally can post the full piece.

I'm trying to come up with something quick so I can make a third post in the portal today but I'm out of ideas.

Pic o' the day number two. Haha. Get it?

I've been using this as my laptop wallpaper for a while. The palette is just calming - ironic as it's a tribute for a very gruesome scene.

Last piece for Pico Day 2019. Hyptosis makes one of the best point and click games.

I forgot gradient maps existed so I wanted to try it out. Layering it straight over grayscale took no more than two minutes.

Why didn't I do this sooner


This is for a writing thing I'm doing so it's all for fun. I wanted to take a little break from the animation this weekend.

I was exploring some ways to make action scenes. Too lazy to finish.

Did a bunch of expressions inspired by Kienan Lafferty's post on Instagram. Will finalize and color later.


This was pretty useful for exploring the emotional range I can get, even without the use of a normal mouth. I need to make an actual ref sheet.

I wasn't in the mood to work on projects or work so I doodled a scifi bunny girl. I tried a little color-theory-based contrast with the cyan yellow purple (should've been magenta) combination. Probably should've pushed for brighter neon colors.

Took a little breather and had another doodle session with a friend IRL. I've been accused of same face syndrome. Looking back, I guess I do have a tendency of drawing round faces and round eyes. Need better references.

Finally back!


I've been away on a family visit the past two weeks and was basically forced to resort to pencil and paper again. I'd started playing some tabletop RPG with my friends so I made a lot of sketches of characters from our campaign.


some of the more refined ones (phone quality, sorry)

Campaign is about to finish so we were coming up with characters for the next one. This one is about a bunch of raiders aboard the Flying Toaster.

Let me know if you have better tips on picking color palettes under dim lighting (dawn/dusk in this case). Figuring out how the base color shifts is a total drag.

I'm going to take a break from this serious digital painting thing and just do a few goofy character designs next time.

Edit: wth the color looks even worse uploaded here for some reason. I'm just plainly disappointed now.


I see what you mean about the colors but I really like the pose.

Will be working on this to celebrate Madness day in about a week! Madness is already savagely good but I wanted to acquire extra violence with a more realistic anatomy.


I was super inspired by artist Neytirix (she's not on NG I think). Her redesigns of characters are pure badass.

Two hours-ish sketch, will finish eventually.

I like her. She probably drowns sailors and steals their kitchen utensils.

I've always wanted to do a series of monsters so I thought I'd do it now. I'm not doing inktober because I'm kinda busy so I'm not sure how much I'll do for these ones. I'm planning on 10 but it might be less.


I prefer this to inktober because my traditional art skill is next to none and I like trying out this pure lineless art style.


Number two is a pair of treants

I'm also practicing some writing. If you're kinda interested in short slightly spooky stories, I put them in the captions.

Some concept I've been thinking about recently. I find the idea ironic; a lingering ghost and a guy who hates his life. May have been inspired by stuff here and there.

Honestly you posting this I think is a great idea. I think it pushes yourself and reflects.


If you want some study's to practice for anatomy I say try looking at book of Loomis figure drawing for all it's worth. I think studying many things like color, backgrounds, in general might help overcome that art block. Or mabey try drawing the things you mainly love and mess with that idea. One big one I know helps me a lot is to stop, take a break if it's really bad, and do the things I love. I go and find that inspiration again, that energy. Which usually is watching animations I love, video games, or going outside and making some fun stories in my head by observing hehe.


Well I hope that I could help.

Thanks for the tips, Crashgen! I found some stuff on Google about Loomis' books. I'll definitely look into it.


Fortunately, I'm not really in any major art block at the moment despite posting here. Nowadays this thread is just my goto for stuff that I plan to finish later or stuff that don't really fit with the other things I post in my gallery.

Putting this aside in case I get inspired again later.

Started over from literal nothing. I opted for a simpler standing pose which seemed to help me focus on the details. Will color later.

iu_65520_6366710.png


Working on the last submission for Halloween. Probably.


I wanted to do something as dark as I can go with at the mo. Still not pure violence or gore though; I'm a strong advocate of subtlety in horror. Come November I want to be more active in posting art too so I'm going to be constantly switching between the simple styles and the more detailed ones for maximum quantity.

Feels rushed but at least I got most of the important parts fleshed out. Theme is pretty dark but


...Happy Halloween!

Fixing the outfit for the character I spat out some two weeks ago. I was looking up references of canvas shoes and kinda liked how it turned out. The colors were bad so I turned off the layer.

So initially I wanted to draw myself a new desktop background with some characters and a nice pleasant sky in the background but I ended up with these purple spider blobs. I say it's an absolute win.


I posted a cropped version in the portal because we all know the format there kills landscape images:


Also a big surprise for me that no one's ever used the tag "shitpost-sunday". I'm gonna put better crap under that tag so everyone feel free to make that a cesspool of weekly internet "trash".

Dead thread isn't dead!


Recently I've been playing around with recording my drawing (minus the sketching) and turning it into a speedpaint because of reasons. Due to not wanting to look bad on record, I decided to put on muh big boy pants and try out the "proper" drawing method i.e.

  1. Thumbnail
  2. Sketch
  3. Refine
  4. Draw over everything on a new layer with clean lineart and forget about that sketch layer that you've passionately slaved over like a bad breakup.

It's hard at first because I'm way too used to the good ol' erase-the-messy-sketch-until-it-looks-good method but somehow I've been gravitating towards this new style and I'm liking the end products. I still use my messy AF drawing style for sketching but now I'm not so afraid to totally thrash a sketch if it turned out worse in the rendering phase.


Also, I've been adoring over this new world I'm building for a new personal project and I wanna share some sketches I'm particularly proud of. I don't know for sure but I feel I'm slowly improving on expressions and drawing faces in general:


iu_89868_6366710.jpg


iu_89869_6366710.jpg


Already finished this last one (it's the one I did a speedpaint for) but I like the sketch so here ya go

iu_89870_6366710.jpg


I've also been trying out a little bit of the naughty recently and NGL it's kinda fun

My stupid ass is being impulsive so I'll post the sketch of what I'm working on right now:


iu_91664_6366710.jpg


The character on the bottom part is definitely wonky. I only realized something feels off after mirroring the image (which is now this one), much too late though as I've already redid the lineart and started coloring. Oh well
