A place for me to toss up my art, which tends to be random pinups and Brightest-related.
Charlie Painting Toenails Request!
Decided to try a quick sketch - the goal was definitely to be loose and fast with it, and that’s what actually happened, thankfully. Basing this off a request (but minus the bra and panties. Though those are in here, I suppose, just underneath!), because I’m not good enough to think up random ideas on the spot right now.
Can’t promise I’ll do any of the requests, but I appreciate the ideas! As you can see, they can sometimes work out.
Charlie Vintage Pinup Sketch
Got something actually sketched up! Again, spent more time poring through my favs on Tumblr and devouring more vintage livingrooms/furniture and pinups.
Still working towards that quest of finding what I like about drawing and comics again. My plan is to try the whole lineless/construction-paper look to this one, too. It’d be nice to get it done in time for posting up Monday on the site to give an update to all the people waiting for the next page and at least let them know “hey, no page coming anytime soon”.
Corset Pinup Sketch
An actual new drawing! Sure it’s just a sketch so far, but it’s the most I’ve drawn from scratch in a long, long time.
Spent some time today looking up burlesque outfits (thanks for the links, those who answered!), and that took me to a corset group with tonnes of amazing shots and outfits and designs and that led to this.
Dark Age of Camelot Troll Lady Warrior!
I loved this class/race. Dark Age seems to be the only MMO that had a big thick lady character. WoW has the Taurens, but even they’re not as awesome as the stone trolls from Dark Age.
Still trying to get through this art funk. Moping about it didn’t work, so I’m trying to force myself through it now. it’s probably going to be pretty bad results, but it’s something.
This weekend, I swear I’m going to get between 5-7 pages pencilled. To help with that, I’m going to make the effort to sketch up the characters and their outfits so I don’t have to waste any time messing around with that during the actual pages.
Here’s Andrea! I realized I didn’t really have her clothing style nailed down yet and had to do some research.
“So” I thought to myself, “I’m having a hard time drawing and should try to do up some like, storyboards/concepts of the next scene to get the blood flowing. And hey, let’s do big group scenes with full backgrounds! That’ll help. And maybe if I draw them on a 16 by 9 inch 300dpi canvas I can REALLY whip these up.”
Turns out I was completely wrong, and this picture has been completely killing me the last two weeks. Now I only have three weekends to get the next pages of the comic done and no art to show for myself.
I’m not a great artist, and struggle every step of the way - art for me is very much the ‘art is pain’ cliche. Art is nothing but pain for me - it’s hours of my life spent on things I end up hating in the end. A realization that perfectly encapsulates my relationship with art and might drive me insane if I think about it too much.
I don’t know if I’ll keep drawing comics after this story is done, but for now I can’t stand the idea of anyone else drawing it, so I guess you’re stuck with me.
