The tail position looks wrong, and the male doesn't have one. otherwise, those three posters = propaganda!
LtPlissken It sure is a nice way of replying but it takes a long time and bad handwriting
Flashback Dunno how I should place her tail xD And yeah I realized the guy didnt have a tail when I finished "inking" it xD
Woooooooaaaaaaaah page 21!
So there is this strange red spot on my wacom, it seems like paint or something but I havent used that colour of red for a while and im like OH MY GOSH HOW IT GOT HERE so if I cannot get it off it, I will take a picture of it for you to see~
So I have like..... one week left for serious practice and then I unfortunately will have to work for a company to graduate from school
And the work I will do will not be creative or anything like that :<
here is some study stuffff!!
van der Poel:
I'm pretty sure the red thing on ur wacom is a blood mark. U have unconscionably sacrificed a star sheep for graduation.
@Creusa: I think it was acrylic paint that stained to my clothing xD It didnt really look like blood :V
And I would neverr hurt the star sheep... They are so cute and starry :V
Anyway, managed to clean my wacom so it is not on it anymore
Time for le updates! Must... draw... more... while... I ... still ... can ....
van der Poel (trying to finish the book so that I can move on to... Vilppu)
and stuff from the little sketchbook :>
And I think I am done with this one....
I must become a pro in one week :V
I have until... Sunday. v_v
Heya....been a while since my last look-see here.
There is certainly nothing wrong with your work ethic! Lotza really nice studies, characters, draw'rings/inks, fish-eez, etc.
I really like the pen drawing of "how you feel"...the girl with da umber-ella!
No advice or critz except to say keep up the dedication and werk! It will all pay off!!
I really feel with you about the "must get better until date X, because then my creative life will diiiiiiee".
I had this feeling when starting my master's degree (non art related), and comes back every start of semester and everytime I have to spend the whole day in the laboratory.
I'm sure you will find some time for drawing as well, though!
The elf is absolutely lovely! Personally I would have prefered a deeper pond, but this is definitely nicer for the watcher
Don't forget to draw wrists though!
Mat Kaminski thanks man
Liberty yeaaaaah it so sadddd :V I will have to deal with it like a boss.
Jephyr X yeah man I have no time to waste. I often feel like an inproductive *** I hope it will pay off...
Lyriana yeah it is terrible, isn't it? I feel like that about my future all the time since my parents want me to get that degree and ...a job v_v Due to health problems I cannot work full-time, but I am just afraid that even working part-time my art will fade.
Why can't life be simpler?
I sure will find time to draw, it just will not be as much as it used to be.
So yeah. I start Monday with my.... graduation... I saw the work place today and it does not look so bad, though it is IT and not art. But yeah. That problem is like... eternal.
Sometimes I wish it was just clear what I should be doing.
I did a half year of philosophy and I know what Aristoteles would say... Or Kant... I also know a lot about the Christian values...
However, none of them tell me if I should be doing art or not.
Aristoteles has this ethic of virtues... That a human should try to become a good human. Here "good" means that all his or her virtues (he would only speak about his) will be in the right division. Not too much of one and not too much of the other, but balanced...
But what the fuck does that say about my future?
OK philosophy lacks the practical side... I guess that's why it is called philosophy.
Photostudy of a fishiiiieeee
Poelie poelie poelie\
(means van der Poel studies :V)
and a short comic with a horror theme...
(English version here: http://xixa.deviantart.com/art/Horror-page-1-285036577)
The horror really starts at the next page xD
I always think that horror in a place that does not look scary at all, is way scarier because it is less expected xD
Experimenting with a sketch:
Some inspiration :>
very matching for Valentinesday huhuhuhu
OK I am not so romantic, Valentinesday is just the day I release the Valentinesday greeting of http://fantasypower.net
That is: those two cuddling creatures :>

Hey sushy! I really like your photo studies, in the past 4 pages I'm seeing a good improvement, so keep it up!
I also like all the fish studies, but somehow I get the feeling you eat them after you draw them... hhm...
Anyway, what I wanted to say is when you are working with textures you shouldn't use it at the very last moment. When you draw over them a bit more they get more infused in the image. This way it looks more like a whole.
Also really enjoyed reading the comic, keep em coming!
more comic please?
Luckers Lolwhut? No I do not eat them XD I do not really like the taste of fish XD You read the comic? In Dutch or English? haha
Ah good thing about the textures, I do not use them often but its a good idea to draw over them more :> Thanks!
cerealist There will be more comics! (and I have a web comic that is updated almost every week: http://fantasypower.net )
Liberty Plato basically mostly wrote down what Socrates said. It is not sure what Plato's views really were, but they mostly agreed with Socrates (they think). Socrates didnt write anything down since he thought philosophy should be spoken and not written. Anyway, Plato or Socrates do have something about what people should do... They should search for true Knowledge. And they put true Knowledge the same as true Beauty. One should discover beauty first in one body, then two and then more. (this should not be interpreted too sexual haha) After that an intelligent human would see beauty in behaviours and such. The human should discover beauty in politics and such and in the end develop a method to perceive the True Beauty itself, which is something as a unity, not from this world. It is the idea of Beauty (of Good)
ok hard to summarize this xD You can look this up in Symposium, where Diotima explains it to Socrates.
did a presentation about it months ago :V
anyway lets find beauty by drawing then.
After that philosophy stuff it is time for the updates!
Here is some comic stuff...
english version at dA http://xixa.deviantart.com

Still life of my gundam.

update on samus thingy
Also, I do not know how to make those puppets Bridgman makes. He used like... a wire and something to cut the blocks from but I do not know what to cut the blocks from :<
So if you know how, please tell meeeeeeeeee
Really like your work especially your pencil figure drawings.
Also that doll in the mini comic is pretty creepy and this is coming from someone whos very hard to scare.
Keep up the good work
Thanks for stopping by over my way.
Still loving what you're doing on this one. Your color choices are really interesting/pleasing to the eye.
Otherwise it's good to see all the studies and paints etc.
"Also, I do not know how to make those puppets Bridgman makes. He used like... a wire and something to cut the blocks from but I do not know what to cut the blocks from :<

The wires are probably copper wires, since you can move them easily enough and it usually keeps its shape, found at the hardware store, and the wood block could be found at an art & craft shop or hardware store, or a toy store; otherwise, your going to have to saw them. Then your going to have to drill them holes in the wood. Make sure to measure twice.
As for the stand, in the book, you could buy some plasticine model clay for the base, and a stick and a hook for the model.
