It's been a while. I've been busy with stuff for a big party we had on Sep 15th. Independence day in Mexico, and also my grandma's 89th b-day. We had a yard full of clutter we had to move around to make space for tables, and cleaning, and other accommodations to keep pets in check at another area, cooking, etc. That included me helping getting the house ready for visits so I also had to take some stuff and change rooms xP

It is at such a time that this place gets a new injection of activity haha.

- - - -

That Zombie Donkey is hilarious.
Egrestoc is also pretty nice, but I liked the donkey so much that it steals the show for me xP

I can't wait to see the drawings more advanced, or to bump into them if they are at a further comment xD
The Heraldic Beast is on point IMO. Btw, why does the paper have dots?

- - - - 


Finally, I've actually drawn a few things over the past month or so. Most being sketches of comic pages of a project of mine, that are in such an unfinished and unpolished state that I haven't even scanned them. Though I have 2 entries for the club.

The first being fanart of a cartoon called "WordGirl", that most people around my age probably have never heard of xD
Ever since my Lapis Lazuli drawing, I've been using a different brush pen that has proven harder to control and with longer drying periods, and my drawings have been turning out fiiine, but I kinda like how the older ones turned out more. I'll probably revisit the idea of drawing fanart for this show later on with other tools to see what happens... Down the line.
I'm frankly not all that satisfied with this result this time around ^^"

Then tonight I've been drawing fanart of Wee Witch's Apprentice, currently I only have the sketch though:

It has been awhile indeed.

 

Thank you for your opinions... I'll prioritize on the donkey one sometime later then. XD Currently working on the Heraldic Beast guy digitally.

 

The paper has dots for guidelines for measurements of area or volume for those who choose to use them. I use them sometimes for more mechanical, boxy, or geometric looking characters... But, otherwise I just ignore them.

___

 

I've actually seen Wordgirl on Netflix... But, I never bothered to watch the show. Regardless, never seizes to amaze me how you make these traditional mediums so well. Especially love the detail and patterning on the foliage. How do you apply the extra bit of detail on the grass and bushes? Do you color them a flat color and let them dry first? (Yes, I've no experience with an actual brush pen... So the question maybe a bit on the dull side. XD )

 

As for the LWA sketch. I love the dynamic angle and gesture. It captures the clumsy nature of the character quite well. My only concern is that the foot in the foreground looks like it is in an angle almost as if she fractured her ankle upwards. I mean I know the intent is the dynamic angles and foreshortening it just looks a tad off is all. Maybe a little more a tilt downward of the foot would remedy that.

I know about WordGirl because PBS Kids still plays the show three years after it ended and I did watch it for a while (not that I cared for it much after a while). But the art is good for what it is.

 

(Really wish they'd get a Math boy spinoff or something because math is something people lack ability to perform nowadays, but that's irrelevant to drawing. IDK, maybe potential sketch later.)

 

====

As for the LWA art, similar critique about the left leg, but perspective probably does that a bit. 

 

 

To be fair, only stuff I'm drawing nowadays is free body diagrams, but that isn't artwork.

For the bushes, yes. I colored them solid with the lighter green (Copic Marker's color code is YG17). The darker green was improvised. Wasn't fully sure what to use.

 

The straight-forward formal way is to use a marker in the same color family (in this case a YG marker) but at least 2 numbers lower (like 15 or 13 instead of 17). That results in a darker version of the same.... but I often disrespect this rule. I add different kinds of greens or even add red or purple for the shading. It depends. The actual shadow of the bushes I used was G99, which is very unrelated... Just added dots irregularly, more concentrated down and putting less of them as I went up until it looked alright.  It dries pretty quickly so by the time I finished the lighter solid green, some of it had already dried and I started there. No blending for those in particular.

- - - -

For the other one, yeah... That sort of perspective is kind of tricky and one of my weak points. I don't think I've ever tried it before... I mean, I've tried in the past but during the sketching stage it usually ends up changing into a position that doesn't use those foreshortening tricks before the inking takes place xD

I used to bump into it, but over here in Mexico it aired on Discovery Kids. The cuteness of the art caught my eye but the channel it was at and the choppiness of the flash animation, combined to always being accompanied when I bumped into it, always made me a little bit ashamed to sit down and see what it was about xD
I found this DeviantArt page the other day that had a ton of cute fanart of the show and I remembered it existed so I just recently checked it out.

It's clearly for little kids with the word defining segments and how 99% of even the villains aren't really bad. Though I found it entertaining and kind of charming. IDK how to feel about me having liked it haha....

I also recognized the voice of the Ice King and Mabel Pines (Gravity Falls) in the show. It is a little surreal to hear them argue. 


- - - - -

 

When you two said LWA, I got a bit confused because I'm so used to that being an abbreviation of "Little Witch Academia". Eventually it dawned on me that you were probably saying "Little Witch's Apprentice" xD

- - - -

Here's an update. I now need to figure out the background and it'll be set:

Wee Witch's Apprentice

I watched it for a couple years. And that's some great fanart to boot!

Smae reason I know of it. Though didn't they already have a math and science cartoon?

Watched it before watching Adventure Time. Though I thought it was cool to see the doctor and king share the same voice actor. And funny enough both are antagonists, albeit silly ones that had helped the protagonist at some point(s).

They had Zoom! and a few others, but those were more real-life ones and not cartoonish. Off top of head, I know there was Sid the Science Kid (albeit more investigative type and less of the actual science fields) and Peg+Cat for math (but basic counting and stuff). I didn't watch either of them so idk; former no longer airs and I think latter still airs down here (idk if mainland canceled it).

 

Both of them were geared towards little kids though; not for stuff that should be taught in grade school or something.

What about Cyberchase? Didn't that one air for at least a long time and feature both mathematics and science? And Christopher Lloyd originally voiced the main antagonist.

Slipped my mind for a while, but yeah. (Also when one of those RL clips at the end implicitly demonstrated the concept of moment arm). Series was good and did replay for a good chunk of 2016 here.

But seriously, I gotta work on that vector art for the other pic I made (the reindeer anthro wearing my Wet & Wild uniform). Should also try drawing Tails too, but we'll see. Drawing him will be different than doing Nick's profile.

Controller Crab- R

 

I thought I would draw out an idea I made from a post in CC from awhile ago. He is supposed to be based off a PS2 controller.

Think I commented on that card a long time ago, but yeah, the picture works (and probably helps I still have a PS2 / 3 with probably working controllers, albeit not being used nowadays).

 

IDK, I think the eyes could've been in the center where the buttons are now as opposed to the sides, but minor nitpick. Unless the PS4 ones have center buttons now, but I doubt it.

The R1, R2, L1, L2 Buttons are suppose to represent the mandibles found on most crabs which are usually four small platelets joined around the mouth. On most species, the mouth is in between the eyes. That is kind of why the analog eyes  are where they are. It is an artistic liberty if you will to capture the essence of the controller and the crab combined together.

Fair enough; might've helped if I remembered what crabs look like. The thing works though.

 

I'm assuming you do intend to color it black later with the buttons and stuff as silver-ish, but what do you plan on doing color-wise?

Basically similar color schematic of the PS2 Controller with the 65% warm gray buttons (perhaps even lighter warm gray on the analog eyes), and carbon black body... It may be subject to change though. As when I am working with colors... I tend to be fickle as hell. Not only that, I don't want the features of its body to obscured so might have to use a little more diverse palette.

OMG that crab design is great. I like how 3D it is, and it does nail the appearance of a PS controller.
I remember the written left/right moving crabs too. It's been a while.

 

- - - -

 

I've had a bit of a hectic week to say the least, but here's catching up on drawings:

I ended up doing this request from a member of the Duel Portal Discord server.

Mermaid Request

Then there's this concept sketch for a casual Link Monsters archetype I made
Storm riding girl

 

Then there's sketch ideas that use characters of a mine from a little comic that I'm still working on, and tries to cover the Inktober challenge keywords. I just have the up-to-date pencil though. I'll only think on inking and uploading them on my other social media if/when I finish the 31 arts for them. Last year I could only cover 9 out of 31.

1-Poisonous

2-Tranquil

3-Roasted

4-Spell

While I'm posting, might as well leave a work myself. Just a doodle I tried to make in class for a project. It's supposed to be Palutena from Kid Icarus

2 months later and I finally do the vector thing

 

Now to see what I end up drawing this month (again, besides free body diagrams and flow nets for 355).

Well, since my assignment was to draw something based on midterm feedback, I tried drawing a girl in a sundress. Since I'm going to color this, I thought I might as well share the ink version. Especially now that I've finally purchased a better pen. I messed up on one of her fingers, though. And if you're wondering about the eye to her left, it's meant to be closed.

I may not be doing Inktober I don't think, but this looks like Tranquil.
