Drawing 30 Expressions for Crispin and Dr. Loboto from Psychonauts

As my artistic endeavors continue, I often find myself failing to improve because I’m too “afraid” to practice things I’m not particularly good at.  Of course, that’s exactly what I should be focusing on if I want to get better, and one area in which I need a helping hand is facial expressions.  I found this sheet of 30 expressions on Deviant Art, which seemed like the perfect method in which to force myself to practice faces I would have otherwise avoided or simply not thought about.

1-Month Core Membership on DA from Ry-Spirit

A few days ago, Ry-Spirit, one of the artists on Deviant Art that I watch, posted a journal entry asking people to post their best work in the comments, with the possibility of receiving a Diamond Badge in return.  I posted one of my most recent pictures, some fan art I drew of Crispin Whytehead from Psychonauts.  I was rather proud of the background, which features Lake Oblongata.  I ended up receiving a Diamond Badge, which also includes a 1-Month Core Membership!  So special thanks to Ry-Spirit for his kindness!

Drawing Razoff 9 Years Later

G’day, folks, today we are comparing two pictures I drew of Razoff from Rayman 3, a rather…eccentric hunter who dwells in the Bog of Murk and who seems to dream of one day owning a “Rayman-skin rug”.  My older picture is from 2012, in which I was inspired by Razoff’s many portraits.  (Yes, the guy’s mansion is decorated quite profusely with pictures and statues of himself.  Suffice it to say, he’s got an unhealthy obsession with his own mug.)  My newest picture was done quite recently and includes one of my very rare backgrounds.  I thought Razoff’s mansion would be a great place to practice some lighting and shading because the place is lit by all manner of fireplaces and candle-bearing chandeliers.

Haunted Mansion Color Palettes for October 2020

This post comes a bit late for Halloween, but I wanted to share with you all some drawings I did for the month of October.  Months ago, I tried my hand at color palettes, the theme being the amazing game, Hollow Knight, that I had recently had the pleasure of playing.  Since I had so much fun with this style of drawing, I decided to do a whole set of Haunted Mansion pictures in this style for the spookiest month of the year.  Behold!

Drawing Vin 7 Years Later

Behold, another drawing comparison!  I love doing these, as it’s a great way to see how much I’ve improved over the years.  It’s also a bit painful to see how horrid my old pictures are….  Anyway, this is a comparison of two drawings I made of Vin from Jak II, which were drawn 7 years apart!

Drawing Rouge 10 Years Later

A few weeks ago, I drew a revised version of my OC, Gretchen the dragon lady, which I originally doodled way back in 2009.  Recently, I recreated another character that I first drew in 2009, Rouge the Bat from the Sonic the Hedgehog series.  (I was in the mood to draw her thanks to my ongoing playthrough of Sonic Adventure 2 over on Virtual Bastion’s Youtube channel….)
