Digital Art – Old friends, new looks.

Happy Birthday, Michie!! I know this is about four days early, but I just…Couldn’t wait in posting it to be honest! And besides, I wanted to draw our first two characters, hanging out again in their new looks, new lives…New everything, to be honest! πŸ˜…

Luugs (once named Lugiuy oh GOD) and Luna were the first characters we roleplay with together, and the first two characters who really INTRODUCED us together as friends~! It’s amazing, honestly, how being in the good old “roleplaying character” community introduced a long-as-heck friendship!!
One of three long-term friendships that roleplaying gave me honestly. πŸ’–

Honestly, if Luugs and Luna were to meet now, Luugs would be floored by Luna’s doll-like-appearance, and be smitten. “Oh gosh, you look so beautiful!!” I wonder how the two’s dynamic would change after all these years…

Lyubov “Luna” Ludmila belongs to Michelle Porter, AKA TwistedDisaster!
Yujin “Luugs” Gozen belongs to me, Marly Buote, AKA CottonCanada.

Digital Art – Winter Akina

Sorta-kinda testing out new drawing tablet I have, I also needed something Winter/Christmas-y of course. πŸ˜† Akina is the most Christmas-y character I have: red hair, green eyes…She’s a winter-gal!
Sadly. her birthday is in May…So unless it snows in May (like how it does here in Canada at times), she ain’t a winter-baby.

Digital Art – Mirror

I did the line work traditionally, and it was totally easier than doing my line work and sketching digitally, hah. Maybe I’ll start doing this more often, my traditional sketching and lines are always more enjoyable anyway! Doing it this way also reminded me of some very old drawings I did of Brutus and Akina years ago (like, all the way in 2012 years ago!).

It’s odd, having a feeling of nostalgia and contentment doing something you remember doing ages ago. I remember when I first did the Brutus and Akina ones, thinking “I’m really am an artist doing things like this! It’s so much EASIER!”. 🀣

Near the end of this trad-digital drawing though, my tablet pen refused to respond to any input I did. I think it’s time to say good-bye to my Yiynova soon, it lived a good two years…

Digital Art – Midnight Menagerie

Watermark'd

If you didn’t read Midnight Menagerie before, this fan art looks like “A DnD campaign with a Vampire and Rouge”, according to a friend of mine! Although, if that’s the case, Shawn ain’t doing a good job. He’s not helping Romero at all, good gosh!

On the account of digital painting, I’m still not that good at it. Honestly, I think Shawn’s face is a bit too chub, and his nose is off. Any good tips on how to paint noses and good faces, let me know please! I’m all up for helpful tips and tricks for the world of digital painting (and drawing/art in general!).

Digital Art – Draw the Squad

Watermark'd2

You know those “Draw the Squad” art prompts/references that are going around on tumblr and what not? Decided to do one to help myself get semi-comfortable with digital art. πŸ’—

To be honest, Akina wouldn’t physically touchΒ CuΓ‘n without wincing and shirking up in fear…So lets pretend this is an Akina who’sΒ able to do so. πŸ˜…

The original image/prompt is by croxovergoddess! Check out their tumblr page, their art is pretty good tbh, and I’m glad they’re not just the “Draw the Squad” artist.

These three are from my fan-comic, Dragon Age: ECHO.

Digital Art – An Unneeded Contract

Watermark'd

Autumn looks pretty pretty with long hair. Brutus, on the other hand, looks so done with the other mage…And a bit flustered. πŸ˜† Oh, Brutus, you have poorΒ  tastes let me tell you…

It’s been a while since I did digital art – to me, at least. I’ve been sketching out comic pages like crazy, so I haven’t had a chance nor really wanted too do any digital work. This was a nice break from blue lines, lemmie tell you…

These two are from my webcomic, Dragon Age: ECHO.

Digital Art – Julia Star Chibi

Watermark'd

I have a problem and it’s called “I love making busts and chibis all of the time now”. I don’t think there’s a cure.

TBH I think most of the chibis I make of my own characters are gonna be turned into stickers for myself.

Digital Art – Leah and Akina Busts

Watermark'dWatermark'd

I’m still trying to get used to CLIP STUDIO PAINT, and also trying to level up my character bust drawing skills to offer these for commissions during livestreams. πŸ‘

So here is Leah and Akina, looking pretty damn cute if I say so myself.
