Childhood Favourites Fanart~ The Powerpuff Girls

I love 90’s cartoons. Dexter’s Lab , Ed, Edd and Eddy, Johny Bravo and Courage the Cowardly Dog never missed me. I adored all of these shows and so much more.One of my favourites was the Powerpuff Girls. Super powered girls fighting crime and saving the day, what was there not to like. I got my little sister onto them last year, she was hooked. I, of course, also watched over a couple epsiodes shamelessy.

Naturally, Buttercup was my favourite because she was a tomboy and I was too, simple .

For the fanart I did them much older and in a semi-realistic style.

Bubbles was the last one I did and I like how she came out the best.  It was really fun to do all of these pieces.

Hope you like.

What were your favourite 90’s cartoon?

Digital Painting Practice- A Sunset

It’s been a while and I’m sorry about that. I was very busy for a while but now my free time is back, well,  for now.

Been working on this a few months back to go back with the sunrise one I did before.  I am very obsessed with the sunset. To me, is one of the most beautiful things God ever created. Just looking at it makes me happy, like I have to have my wedding, baby and 50th anniversary under the sunset, somehow. I love it and when it is gone I miss it so much.

Sunset

 

Well, I rediscovered  this while I was going through some unfinished work of mine (which is quite a bit).

Anyways, this was just a study for me and I was getting quite meticulous on it so I decided to let it go a bit and now here it is. The sunrise painting mentioned before can be seen here and the reference photo for this can be found here .

Not sure what I will do next, maybe something  with water but whatever it is you guys will see it.

Which are you? Sunrise or sunset?

Thanks for reading.

Sketch Batch

Here are a few sketches I drew over the course of time I was away from the blog.

Sketches of the Week

Sketches of the Week

Been busy with some projects so no finished work for now but you’ll see some fanart  of Annie Mei and Rei from the artist CT Chrysler [more of his stuff  here and here] and some concept drawings of my character, “The Girl With the Sky In Her Hair”.

Yes, I know it’s the longest name ever. Not that long names are bad or anything . I mean Sparky Sparky Boom Man is a pretty popular name [talking about such, have you seen the Book Three Legend of Korra trailer as yet?] . I just haven’t found the perfect name yet but I’m sure I will.

Till then, bye and enjoy your week.

Girl With the Sky In Her Hair Sketch

Heya, hope everyone’s day is going well.

Did some sketching yesterday of an OC (Original Character) I’ve had in mind. She is just known as ‘ The Girl with the Sky in Her Hair’ for right now. If you look at the banner for this blog just above, you’ll see my very first drawing of her. I talk a bit more about it here .

I have a million ideas floating around in my brain for this character right now so look forward to more sketches of her.

Below sketch and lineart.

New Month!

Hope everyone is keeping up with the goals they set earlier this year. I haven’t been completely consistent but I’m not giving up yet. I can still turn things around and so can you.

Morning Sketches

Some morning sketches to loosen up a bit. Did these in Photoshop, haven’t been in there for a while and it felt a bit foreign so I’ll be returning to it more often.

Have a great day!

Oh, Shading !

Hey,

Something new from me today. Been catching a good few livestreams from one of my favourite artist, Stanley ‘Artgerm’ Lau.  If you haven’t heard of him before you can check out some of his artwork on his deviantart . His gallery will tell you.

When it comes to his livestreams, other than watching him create, the chat with many other artists and the music just makes for a pretty cool time, I learn just watching him and reading the chat. Everyone and Artgerm share many tips and encouraging words to get you on your way.

I was watching one lately when he mentioned something about shadows  and light  after being asked a question by someone in the chat. I can’t remember it word for word but it was something like, ‘simply think of  shadows as the absence of light’. Pretty basic I know  but somehow this took the pressure off  of me a bit when it come to shading.

You see shading was never an easy thing for me to do.  Still isn’t, sigh.

I kinda always tried to skim pass it but if I wanted to get better I couldn’t keep doing that. So I’ve been  reading a few tutorials and practicing from photos.  I’ve improved but of course I can do better. You can always do better.

Anyway, after the stream, I was driven to practice some shading so I did.

There was this really pretty picture of one of my fave Youtuber, Carmen from My Natural Sistas, floating around my facebook so I  used that as my reference. Her picture was clear and easy for me to see the light and dark areas.

Here is a link of the photo, linkie , and here is what I did;

I’m pretty happy with how it turned out. I see things I could fix of course but I still really, really had fun doing this.

I will be doing more but right now I’m working on a children’s book which I’m really excited about that. When I can, will show some of the illustartions on here.

Last but not least , here are some words I feel the need to share here:

There is a place in life, a place where you want to sit and give up, give excuses to stop pursuing your goals and kick your instrument away and do something easier, like doing nothing. But I’m telling you that if you get up from this place, if you push pass that sinking feeling of failure, you’ll find your way. You’ll get a glimpse of what you can become and you’ll know you can be it. So don’t give up. Just don’t do that.

Thanks for reading.
