Melancholia

One artwork at a time

27 Sep

For now until further notice the dailies will be paused. 

A crisis has happened in my life and I have lost the ability to draw, I can only do ugly doodles. At some point I’ll get it back once I can get in touch with my emotional side. 

I will still try to queue something if possible but I can’t say so for sure. I am sorry.

No, this did not actually take me three days to do, but the first two days I spent them prepping some canvas with tea for a commission I got. I still haven’t uploaded the pictures of that, so I’m just using this as a marker for the work done those days too, plus today I let the canvas breathe and dry. I corrected finally her dress, the lines that are less dark are the original sketch, so that’s why it looks weird. I’ll have to colour more skin again! I hope I can make it all look the same.

Drawing without a reference for her dress is a bad idea*. So this is all wrong and I have to redo it. Most probably what I lost yesterday was also wrong, so at least now I don’t feel so bad :P
*Even when I designed her dress(

I am an idiot and I had resketched all I needed to correct, and was just working on refining details, and paused to cook some Mexican food so I could celebrate the Independence (from Spain) with my Spanish friend :P (because that’s just how I roll), and the switch flicked out and I lost all my progress. I wanted to cry! [Now I want an autosave or backup feature in ArtRage)

When someone else writes over your doodles. So I’ll let this one be titled Caitlin. Those are actually my own legs I was sketching while waiting for the coffee to be ready.

A more refined realistic sketch rather than gesture or pose ones.

Finally getting to tackle the hair. What’s funny is that in the end I decided to change completely her looks, so all this work done here was “for nothing” in a way…

Sketching the time away, or rather, just trying to do different things all around.

Oh the glory of drawing silly ideas that come out of my friend’s head. And the fun bit of drawing a rack just because :P

New kitties-foxes. Slowly making this drawing grow more and more. I really liked the “offspring” I drew from Kit and Vinx. Aren’t they cute? Now I just need to make up my mind as to what to put in the middle of the page and it’ll be done.

Me being silly and creating new characters just because. I think this is a flop :S oh well, doesn’t matter, at some point I’ll get it right.
