thanks you two
Means a lot to me :> I really need some nice comments sometimes because my day job really gets me down.
My job makes me draw scrappy diary comics like this
only way to truly express my stress and all it seems
why do I even show it...
OK and here are the real updates!
self-portraits (also in my special thread but oh well)
Lyriana thanks that is great to hear :>
MrFrenik I work at a software company, developing in ASP.NET and stuff. I cannot stand errors. As a software developer, you are scrued then. :V
luckily it was weekend today.
stuff from my sketchbook:
The rest of the day I worked on my ChoW entry (besides updating my web comic of course)!
here is some music that heals the mind think...
These bunnies in pen look EVIL! I can tell, look at them chewing the grass like they mean it!
I'm glad you entered the ChoW thing too. I can't believe you are showing this cute animal's last moments, I wouldn't want to see it go
If you wish, I can point out some things that went wrong with the ChoW work - technicalities mostly. Just say the word.
Anyway, Cheerio for now!
Hallo there. Think things are coming along nicely, keep up those anatomy studies because your faces tend to come out either long or wide although it seems right in your Chow piece
I actually really like how you did those clouds in first sketch of #756, keep looking critically and interpreting what you see effectively like that
Kerah Oh yeah those bunnies were evil already when I drew them from ref. Sure it is a cute animal... But don't most people eat meat? I do not see how an animal's cuteness makes a difference. I think cows, chickens and pigs have the same rights. XD
Anyway please do say what went wrong with this work, good for future reference :V
TFsean thanks, I experience it is very hard to draw clouds with ballpoint pen or pencil xD Usually I get things that don't look much like clouds I think...
Anyway, I will keep studying :V
tomorrow it is monday again. gahhh
had a mental breakdown today, so I got not much done :/
Here is my entry for ChoW
This is a character I will be using for an upcoming project.
And some regular doodlings:
Today was my day off, so I finally got time to install my new tablet *__*
Then I was like... What if the surface wears out? (like on my old intuos3)
So I taped a transparent sheet over it.
Good idea, yes or no? XD
I really had to get used to this tablet, so I just started sketching:
I doodle too much, I should finish stuff :<
Update on my acrylic painting, gosh I am so slow..
and take a look at my goldfish monster! :>
That was it for now :V
@Creusa: oh it sure is, I just have to get used to it :V
Will I ever graduate?
Today was day 31..
Here are some doodles
This painting is going very slowly too...
Geez I want it to be perfect because this one is "special" to me v_v
Aww, thanks for remembering me < 3 . Does that tablet thing actually work okay? (because it looks like a good idea, lol) No weird side-effects?
Edit: Omg, new post just as I pressed OK
Congrats on the new tablet Suz!! It looks pretty awesome. My intuos3 doesn't appear to wear off, although my intuos mileage is probably not close to yours - my pencils are taking all the attention
A bit of (hopefully) helpful ChoW critique :
The pole of the weapon works like an illusion, I know it should appear like an elongated and straight cylinder but it isn't. I think it's mostly because of how you shaded the part where the hand holds the weapon, it makes it look "broken".
The whole pose and the hands seem a little too stiff, I'd suggest doing quick gestures and thumbnails to capture the wanted motion and working big (and detailing later).
I think that's enough of critique, never liked giving any - feels like I'm purposefully downgrading your work although that isn't what I want to do.
Anyway, hope it was helpful Suz.
Saara_ It does work, but the surface feels a bit strange (though I find the surface of the intuos5 strange anyway)
Kerah My intuos3 was quite old, it has been almost 5 years I think :V and I of course scratch like a madman I guess
Argh fixing stiffness in figures is so hard XD I really should do some gestures indeed, I do not want my figures to stay stiff foreverr :V
Alex Eh thank you, Alex-sama *v* Please share your animu musiccu
GAH PRESSED OK BEFORE ADDING THE DRAWINGS
HERE THEY ARE OK
Wow! An Intuos 5! I read that it's sensible
on finger touch also? So cool. Surface wearing out?!?
You are scaring me. Can that really happen? What
happens when the surface wears out? It will not
register the pen touch any more?
The mirror painting is very very good,
one of my favs now;
@LtPlissken: thanks :>
Oh yeah that is true, every tablet in fact has this. It depends on the tablet and the amount you use it how fast it wears out. For intuos3 there are spare surfaces available I think.
However for the intuos5 there is no replacement surface. You would have to send it back to wacom to fix it. I have never had a tablet loosing pressure sensitivity though. There just come scratches on it that remain. It can be annoying when drawing. That is why I am going to try to keep this tablet as good as possible.
This song was very needed today:
It is also the answer to the question "When will I stop drawing?" Answer: Till I collapse :V
Some hands studies:
Cartoon I made for a Dutch contest. Unfortunately it did not make it though.
Strange creature for C.O.W.
It is supposed to have an 8 bit shell XD

@Lyraina: thank you :> I hope you like the new version too XD
I worked some more on the creature...
This is the strangest thing ever I think XD
I hope the 8 bit shell is working a bit. I did not want to make it too flat..
And some Bridgman:
Gaahh tomorrow it is Monday again
Edit: Oh and I forgot this masterstudy..
@Creusa: yeah whats with that lady :V
That is a masterstudy gone wrong.
Looking back at it now I think like "wtf was I doing, whats with that face eeeh"
My sketchbook is full now, so I have a new one.
These are the last scans.
Update on that strange creature:
Maybe I should have a Finish-it-all stream tomorrow or something to get all this painting stuff finished :V
No, tell me! Maybe we could battle someday, lol. I recently bought a 3DS, but I haven't opened it yet coz I wanna focus on drawing and painting, lmao. Come to think of it, it's been a month or so since I bought it, hahha. Legend of Zelda 3DS bundle for the win!
Do more master studies!

kimozabbi LOL I have no idea how that battle stuff in the DS works :V
Or do you mean a Photoshop battle :>
Lumens I never do master studies XD those two are one of the few. ^^;
Gah, I have been feeling really down lately.
Anyway, here is my final for C.o.W, because I dunno what to work on anymore...
Scans from the new sketchbook...
And I worked on this more because I was too fucked-up to do something else:
You know it would be nice to have supportive parents for a change.

@Lyraina: thanks I am glad someone likes it :>
OK today I did not get much done... First work... which drains all my energy.
And then I launch photoshop and it freezes on start-up! I have this problem for a while now. I disabled the TWAIN and now I have also reset it to factory settings.
I hope that helps :/
Else I am out of tricks :<
I even had nightmares about it last night.
So yeah not much digital work done today.
Here is some Bridgman:
that was it... for now :V
