@sajan also! I just started season 3 of my DS9 rewatch, and I’ve made some great progress with my figure drawing so I *may* be doing some of those weird DS9 comics in the future! 😄
This is an excellent practice tool that a friend recommended to me: https://line-of-action.com/practice-tools/figure-drawing
Happy #internationaldogday to the resident stinker
Had a really productive ramble with a friend that’s been an illustrator for most of their life. Realized I need to pull back a bit and refocus on my foundational work.
I think I jumped too far ahead, getting antsy about “not making progress”, but foundational work is just that. And I’ve gotta remember, I’ve only been illustrating for less than a year. It’s a marathon, and there are no pressures at all.
Hey, folks! Here, have a short comic I made for school back in 2014.
It's called "Home". It's about my last experience living with roommates.

(Despite the quality of the art, which was lacking because I had to finish it so quickly, I'm pretty proud of it. ☺️ )
Had 30 minutes in between things today; so I put together a quick doodle of Kira!
I tried to follow some advice about not getting too lost in the lines, and instead trying to find the way the light and shading comes across. I could definitely go for more dramatic shading
I’ve been quiet for most of May, because, well May has been exhausting 😬😬
I’d been working on this piece since May...12thish? It’s a sketch based on grabbing coffee with a friend and walking our pups. I wanted to pour more time into it, but just couldn’t find the hours; so I rounded it off with shading + inking and called it done. Hopefully I can revisit it someday soon!
Finished another study! Started it on Tuesday, finished the coloring tonight. the perspective is okay, but I wanted to focus on coloring this time around; including blending colors and actually applying color theory to do things like make the stripes on the carrot
Heya! I’ve been a fan of comics my whole life, but I’m learning illustration for the first time as an adult in my spare time. Always happy to chat & learn!
