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.

Drawing Midna 11 Years Later

When I redraw a character years later, it can be fun to compare them and see how much I’ve improved.  It can also be…a bit painful, to be honest.  One of my most recent pictures was of Midna from The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess.  I’ve been meaning to draw her again for a while, but I didn’t get around to it until 11 years later!  That’s right, I haven’t drawn Midna since 2010, and my first reaction upon seeing this old picture was…what the heck even is this monstrosity?

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!

A Decade of Blogging Well Spent

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.

Practicing the Rubber Hose Art Style with Cuphead

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.

Hollow Knight Color Palettes

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!

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!

2019 Art Summary

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!
