I used to draw during 2010-2015, but then I stoped. But now I want to start again! So I'm currently on a quest of learning how to draw again ^^
(because... i want to draw aikoto.. 👉👈)
Software: Clip Studio Paint PRO
Tablet: Wacom Intuos S
Canvas: 5100x4800, 200dpi
Brushes: I made my own, but I can't upload it because the brush tip isn't mine, sorry :(
Maybe in september I will start with figure drawing or something? Or simple anatomy.... I got a pdf one of my art teachers (one of the few good men ever btw) gave me a few years back about figure drawings, maybe it's finally time to put it onto practice
Anyways, I drew this cute mascot! I didn't feel like painting, so I picked something cute but still human-ish to keep practicing. When compared with the original photo, it's clear she's off, but without it she looks kind of cute!
I disliked how she was turning out, but I kept drawing until I liked it more or less... Still pretty messy because my brain always turns off after drawing more an hour, but at least I started to render a bit more when using colors, that's an improvement ^^
This is actually not the first time I try to practice them, my fist attempt was re-drawing love live cards (here’s my last & 1st attempts) in... 2020 I think, but since I drew them for myself, I stooped at the 4th day lmao
They’re super wonky, but I remembered them looking worse lol It was short, but they did help me to get over my fear a bit tho, and that’s what matters! My main problems is the face in general; hair, eyes, shape, neck.... it’s all new and very confusing
It took me... 1 hour & half-2 hours? And all for it to look bad because idk how to color lineart lmao But at least I learnt stuff & I think the colors are ok ^^
I changed my lineart pen's pressure curves so even if I always apply the same, it will still change its sice. It doesn't fully work, but it's better than before. I also think maybe my drawings need thicker lines? Since theyre pretty simple and all....? This one used the same pen, but the canvas is 1500px instead of 5000px so it looks thicker.
I actually liked drawing this one, it was fun. I prefer how the pait-ish style looks, but it's good to know if I keep tweaking this pen, maybe I can do lineart from time to time.
Now for the news, I finally decided on how my mascot will look like! :D Since it's such a simple design, I'm sure there are like 33408 OCs like her around there, but do I care? Nope! 💕
She's actually an OC I made when I was 12yo, originally named Cream. She is like the only one of my OCs I care about, so I picked her as my mascot.This is how she looked like in 2012. I don't have any pics of my art back then, so I tried to recreate it... Imagine this but drawn with cheap markers:
Yep, I barely changed anything outside markings and proportions, but don't change what isn't broken, right? When I learn how to draw better I still want to give her a non-chibi form tho, I find them very cute and I want to give her pretty dresses and stuff ^^
Today's is unfinished; tt's pretty late already, so I'm not able to draw more, I need to rest my eyes.
Anyways, I'm continuing the AC screenshots redraws ^^ I found it cute to paint scenes from my towns, like how old people did on their daily lifes since there weren't cameras around. The ACNH one wasn't my screenshot, but I got Marshal on my town & pansies are my native flower, so it can pass as one~
Also on the topic of the deleted brush... I downloaded a bunch of brushes, but no one drew or blended like I wanted. I tweaked one of the brushes I already had & it seems to be a bit similar; but it's not the same @.@ At least I'm nearer... I will continue tomorrow.
WAIT NO A TRAGEDY HAPPENED WHILE I WAS CHECKING MY SETTINGS... I accidentally deleted the custom brush I used for this & it's the only brush I can draw with 😭😭 I will try to recreate it, if I made it once I can do it twice I hope...
During these few years, I thought that drawing just for myself without posting on social media would help because I wasn't oblied to draw well, I could be free and make as many mistakes as I wanted. But without attention of some sort I dont get motivated to draw, but then I realised Neocities is perfect for that! I post stuff online, they dont get likes since its a website, but I get their placebo effect anyways lol
So I will try to post something everyday, even if it's just a 5 minute doodle!
