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.

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.

Frozen’s Elsa and Anna Fanart

Pretty sure everyone knows about Frozen by now and if you don’t, I still sure everyone has heard the song ‘Let It Go‘ from the movie in some form or another. The movie is Disney latest animated feature film about two sisters based loosely on Hans Christian Andersen’s  The Snow Queen and I do mean loosely.

Fun fact, I’m a huge Hans Christian Andersen fan and very fascinated with the Snow Queen fairy tale. I’ve watched the My Life A Fairytale; a movie that told the story of Hans and his many stories which included The Snow Queen and the  2002 Snow Queen movie starring Bridget Fonda a while back .

I’m hoping someone does another film showing the Queen’s true nature. There were a few more other than the ones I mentioned but a modern day one is needed now.

Well, I watched it and quickly liked the two sisters. Elsa moreso because she is the first Disney princess with a magical power, though she didn’t use it enough in my opinion. As for Anna,  she was alot of fun to watch because of her silly and very quirky personality. My favourite character in the show however is Olaf. A snowman singing about summer and bathing in a hot tub really deserves that title.

The movie overall was very pretty and beautifully animated but lacked a bit in the story, which was a bit disappointing.

I’m a huge Tangled fan and that is because the story and the characters all fit and worked well to the overall benefit of the film. Rapunzel and Flynn had a chemistry that for me is hard to match. And it doesn’t help that I am a shameless Flynn fangirl. Also with a villian like Mother Gothel, Prince Hans just does not compare, though he was pretty sleazy.

As for the songs in Frozen, however, they were so catchy. Took me a good four months to get them out of my head and even now if someone says, ‘let it go’ , believe me I will start singing that song. Funny thing is when I had enough of ‘Let It Go’, I moved on to ‘Do You Want To Build A Snowman?’ , ‘Fixer Upper’ and ‘In Summer’. My little sister and I would start each other off  all the time with these songs.

Also, I’m a huge Once Upon A Time fan and for this season’s finale they left us a little present. Let’s just say I was freaking out by the time it was over.

Looks like the Frozen craze isn’t going to be over for a while.

The fanart is to show the bonds these gals had when they were much younger. I love the first couple of  scenes in this movie especially how Anna woke up Elsa to play, reminds me of my little sisters when they will wake me up in the morning.

Thanks for reading.
