So, I didn't really have anything worthwile to post yesterday and I was drawing all day pretty. It rained a bit! It felt so nice. I was inspired so now I have something to post.
 I wanted to draw in a stylized way with simple shapes and design. I really like the colors and the bench. Her pose could use some work, but I like the cartoony feel.
This was a fun collaboration between my friends Bree and Lily! Lily did the girl with the purple hair, mine is red, and Brees is blonde. Here's a link to Brees deviantart :

Here we are agian. I'm not totally sure who is actually looks at my blog, and those who do, thank you for taking your time to take a look. I would really like my blog to be more public but at the same time I am either under motivated or absolutely terrified of mkaing my art more public. Like, when I want to comment on someones blog post of artists who are way more experienced and better than me, I freeze up in fear of how they would react to my blog if they decide to check it out. I'm also condiering getting a tumblr to act as a mirror blog to this one because a lot of my favorite artists have a tumblr than a blogger. Anyway, here's some stuff! I've been experimenting with backgrounds and lighting effects, so they are a kinda sloppy.
 Another chracter from Suikoden :) Thanks for viewing!

Life drawing + Posemaniacs

Hey there. Today I have some actual skecthes on paper! Posemaniacs is a site that offers a drawing exercise where you draw a pose for 30 to 90 seconds, it's really fun! Also, I have some sketches I did of my friends when they stood still for more than a minuete. I edited the sketches a little so they wouldn't be over lapping or upside down :I
This is Jordan, my boyfriend, when we were in the school library.
My fellow tennis players when we were coming home from State on the bus. It was pretty cramped in there.

And my friend Brandi when we were watching TV at the hotel.

Here are some posemaniacs sketches. I had the time limit set 60 and 90 seconds :P I plan to do this more often!

A quick post

This is a short post, here are some sketches.  Another color collab with my friend Lily, she did the hair and the cup and I did everything else. I like how I did the table with the reflections and skratches.

More sillouettes and graffiti things, I really love doing these.

And here's a quick sketch of a girl. I wanted to draw a baggy cardigan, sorry for the extra white space in the pictures, haha.

Fanart Friday

Sorry for not posting yesterday! I was busy this short story comic I am writing for a contest. The deadline is July 9! So since it's Friday that means, fanart! So here is some fanart of one of my favorite webcomics on the web, Homestuck!
It's the trolls! All 12 of them. I tried giving them each unique poses and different lighting.  

Click to view! Here is a really old animation I did, its pretty good for my first try, haha. I did this in either 2007 or 2008. I hope you enjoyed the post!

Some quick things.

I'm starting to get bored with manga. There is nothing new that really appeals to me and I find most of the new stuff boring, generic, or annoying. I'm even getting tired of some of the series that I started collecting long time ago. I was abandond at Hastings the other day with ten bucks and 2 hours of time and as I waited for my Mom, I read comics in print for the first time like graphic novels and comic books and I really enjoyed them and when I go there agian with enough cash, I'm going to buy something else other than manga for the first time. It's kinda ridiculous, but we all have to start somewhere, espiecally since I want to make comics and not manga since I don't live in japan or know japanese. I'll still collect some of my favorite series, but I think I want to move on. Anyway, here are some small illustrations.
Pardon the jpeg file
 A character from Suikoden III, one of my favorite manga series.
I doodled this a few months ago. See you tomorrow!

Before and After

Here are some really old pictures from 2008, when my illustrations had an anime kind of thing going on. It looked terrible. I re-did some of those old pictures and I know that the newer ones are still ameteur but I'm very glad I don't draw like how I did anymore.
Here's one I re-did today actually. I still have to work on lighting and things.

The newer one was done last year I think and is a little wonky, but I wanted to show how ugly and uneven the previous one was, haha. I hope you enjoyed them!
I had no idea what ethnicity was back then :P

Old and New

I have so many things I want to post, but I'll just keep the minimum to three. So, I've been thinking about creating a short comic, maybe less than 20 pages. I have never made an actual comic before, even though that's the kind of career I want. I know it seems far fetched, but it's not like I plan to become the next Scott Pilgrim :P It's not like I can't do other illustrating jobs and commisions and things like that. Anyway, that's what I think. Here is an old illustation I did in 2009, I touched it up a bit, but I think it's pretty good, especially since it was from 2 years ago.  Click to see full size!
Here's a color collaboration with my friend Lily :) Here's a link to her deviantart  I did: the sketch, skin, gloves, quiver, arrows. She did: hair, boots, coat, bow.
For this picture I wanted to try a more simplistic kind of shading, trying to show the closest parts and the deepest parts of the face. I really like curly hair too, haha.

Tomorrow I'll probably post some of my finished illustrations.

My First Blog

Hey my first Blog! Don't make fun of me! I don't expect anyone to follow my blog, this is more of a personal journal to post my sketches and things. I think having one of these is a good idea for promoting and social networking, so I decided to make a blog, I will personalize the layout later : )
Heres Izaya from Durarara! For Lily cause we did an art trade a long time ago and it took me forever to actually do it :I

I really like doing silloettes and having a kind of graffiti art feel. It's a girl wearing a silly cat hat.
