It suddenly occurred to me that my blog’s anniversary was coming up. As I do every year, I sat down to write up my usual post on the topic. And this is when I realized that this is a mighty big occasion indeed. Ten years ago, on this very day, I started this blog here on WordPress! Yes, the one you’re reading right now! And today, on this most special of days, I’d like you to join me as we reminisce on what has taken place in all that time. Continue reading A Decade of Blogging Well Spent
G’day, everyone, I’ve got a new set of fan art to share with you all! Earlier this year, I finally got around to playing the immensely popular Cuphead. You know, that super difficult game that was drawn in the classic rubber hose art style from the 1930’s? Well, as I so often do when I enjoy a game, I decided to draw some fan art and, while I was at it, get a little bit of experience drawing in a totally new art style I had never tried before. Continue reading Practicing the Rubber Hose Art Style with Cuphead
In the past, I had seen some artists on DeviantArt try their hand at using color palettes to color their pictures. It looked like a rather fun, little challenge, so I hunted down those color palettes myself in order to try out some of my own. I had recently played Hollow Knight, and due to the game’s unique art style, I thought it would be a great choice for some color palette goodness! Continue reading Hollow Knight Color Palettes
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! Continue reading Drawing Vin 7 Years Later
I’ve now been on Deviant Art for two full years, which means it’s time for another art summary! Looking over last year’s summary, I’m happy to say that I’ve certainly improved. Since last year, I’ve gotten much better at coloring eyes, and I’ve also been experimenting on better ways to color hair. This upcoming year, I’d like to start drawing more dynamic poses and more complex images in general, with more action and possibly more character interaction, as well. Here’s to another year of doodling! Continue reading 2019 Art Summary
Now that Inktober is over, I decided to create a summary picture for all 31 of the inked drawings I did. This was my first Inktober, and admittedly, it was a rather exhausting affair. I usually do just a drawing or two a month, and this time, I was drawing nearly every day starting September 1. Needless to say, it made me…tired. And I look forward to taking a short break from drawing for the time being. Continue reading Inktober 2019 Summary
Inktober is nearly over, and I’ve got yet another group of drawings to show you guys. Since last week’s Highlights post, I got some grey pens, which you’ll be seeing occasionally. I still haven’t quite gotten the hang of them, but they look kind of cool when I actually use them properly. While I’m only showing my best pictures here in these Highlights posts, keep in mind that you can always find all of my pictures over on Deviant Art. Continue reading Inktober 2019 Highlights Week 4
Greetings, foolish mortals. Today is a very special day for Disney fans, for Disneyland’s Haunted Mansion has just turned 50! Being my very favorite Disney attraction, I decided I simply had to celebrate this ghoulishly delightful occasion with something of the artistic variety. Along with something else quite special that I will be sharing with you all in the near future…. Continue reading Celebrating 50 Years of Happy Haunts!
After about a year and a half on DeviantArt, I have finally decided to start doing commissions! I am offering either half or full-body characters with three different options: lineart, flat colors, and fully shaded. For fully shaded pictures, I am also offering simple and more complex backgrounds for an additional fee. Continue reading Art Commissions Are Now Open!
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….) Continue reading Drawing Rouge 10 Years Later
