Birthday gift for the wonderful Marie - an illustration of her wonderfully sunny and wonderfully French OC, Simone Rousseau. This came out a lot more kawaii desu magical girl than I anticipated, but well I mean Simone is super kawaii anyway so it fits.
Happy birthday, Marie!! <3
You’re welcome! I’m glad I could help C: Also, I’ve been digitally painting for a while haha. I started in like my freshman/sophomore year of high school (I’m almost 23 years old now, and about to graduate college, if that gives you a better time frame) when all I had was Photoshop 7.0 and a mouse, and I’ve been working on it ever since. I have a step-by-step tutorial/process guide that I made a while back, but the technique is basically the same, so I hope it helps in any way. http://no-nami.deviantart.com/art/Painting-Steps-188154407
The brushes I use are basically the standard Photoshop pack brushes, but with opacity/size/texture set to pen-pressure. Definitely mess around with the tablet pen pressure settings, and figure out which is more comfortable for you to use. The only other brush pack that I’ve downloaded and used is this one: http://danluvisiart.deviantart.com/art/My-Brush-Pack-118954791
Definitely keep practicing, though, and don’t let anything disuade you! C: It does take work, but the end results can be amazing and unique from artist to artist, so it’s definitely worth the time and effort. Good luck, and definitely ask me any kind of questions you like - I’m always willing to help!
(Also, I hope you don’t mind I share this answer - I think the links/resources might be useful for others, too!)
Continuing my line of quick character portraits, this time with Teddy, who is going to be the little engineering prodigy of my group of space-peeps. Referenced a picture of Sen Mitsuji vaguely, though I tried to make Teddy look younger since I want him to be like 17 still.
edit: A H A just realized I didn’t actually finish his ear oooops. Oh well, sketch is a sketch.
Another character portrait quickie, this time of my girl Niral, soon-to-be space ship captain. Referenced Amara Karan for the portrait practice, also because Amara Karan is adorable and a wonderful actress that ought to be in all the things ever.
Haven’t been posting much art lately (my bad, y’all) so I thought I’d try and break my slump with a quick portrait sketch. Loosely referencing a pic of Kerry Washington cuz she’s stunning, and also because this may be a character I have webcomic plans for soon. And by “may” I mean it is.
An old sample page I did for Ryan Ruffatti of one of his old scripts. It was kind of a “try out” to do the interiors for another project. It’s been a while, so I thought it would be ok to post it up. Not entirely happy with this style now, though, but I guess it’s just a matter of finding a style I’m comfortable of working sequentially in.
“Hey, by the way, let’s fuck.” 12”x17” Digital
I am rly creative with titles, obviously. Finally finished this sucker, and took some progress shots to make a little process .gif - sorry for the poor quality .gif DX I had to put it together on picasion, and it doesn’t like color much. Anyway, gonna be selling prints of this and more soon. I’m thinking I should open up a print shop or something. What’s a good online venue?
Some quick digital painting practice. I’m gonna try and make myself do more backgrounds/scenery/urban-scapes in my work so I can get used to drawing and painting backgrounds. This was a really simple one just to play with color and a painting style inspired by seventypercentethanol here on Tumblr.
Tonight is the night of really vague snippets of WIPs apparently.
