Well, I haven’t drawn in forever, so instead of continuing the last year, I’ll simply start a new one, back at day 1! So, welcome to season 2. I hope I’ll keep drawing, and see as much improvement this year as I did last year. I’m rusty right now, and I know I can much better, but here’s a comparison with Day 1 of last year.
livingpixel asked: hey great work!!
Hey, thank you! I’ve sort of been on Hiatus from my drawing due to school and stuff, but I’m glad someone’s diggin’ it :) You’ve got a great aggregate of art on your tumblr.
The gangster lives in colour. All the colouring and shading was done in Inkscape. Digging the flip flops?
Technically, this is still yesterday, but I wanted to post it now: here’s an .svg of my next two-day project. Just a little cartoon character I drew. Call me inefficient, but it took me 3 hours to vectorize this with small intermissions to check a friend’s english essay for her. Here is where I started from:
This, this I’ve been working on for about 3 weeks. I know it doesn’t seem like it’s that time consuming, but I’ve really painted this over many many times, and I had to spend time vectorizing it, and a lot of time shading. The PSD was 128MB, though I did work in AutoCAD’s Sketchbook Pro.
This all started as a pencil drawing my girlfriend made me, about a month ago. I’ll have more layer-by-layer progress up in the next few days.
Didn’t really work out. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯, I tried.
Still drawing. I want to try my hand at more cartoony stuff, inspired by Juice Foozle and the Omnitarian. Today I sketched it, in about 10 minutes, and then spent nearly an hour vectorizing it (in Inkscape no less). I will apply copics and shading later today or tomorrow. Close ups of the sketch and vector follow.
Hey guys, I actually HAVE been drawing every single day, just on my computer, and working on one huge project (a present for my girlfriend’s birthday, I’ll post it after I get it professionally printed (on canvas no less!) and give it to her). For now, just deal with my random noodles in AutoCAD’s Sketchbook Pro. Just playing around, I use an (old?) Intuos3. Don’t worry, I haven’t given up drawing. I’ve just gotten way worse :)
Here’s my attempt at drawing Robert Downey Jr. He doesn’t look angry enough, his forehead isn’t big enough and his eyes are a little bit odd. I tried :)
I know. I haven’t drawn in days. Weeks. Sorry.
