it feels good to draw in my style again

6

A bunch of scribbles that I post everyday on twitter! C:
I’m super motivated to improve this year and I also started doing buildings and perspective! I’ve been doing different styles, studying muscles, a LOT of studies…
I won’t post all the doodles as I like to keep my tumblr for “finished art” so feel free to follow my twitter! (@Rhesymn)

End of the year, time for an improvement meme! I think I improved the most in my shapes; I went from using mostly round forms and parallel lines to sharp angles and a more rhythmic, expressive style. Second place goes to me actually daring to draw hands & feet now instead of pretending they don’t exist, haha.

I’ve been getting alot of messages lately, especially since I picked up drawing Gorillaz again. And more often then not I see messages such as,
“I wish I could draw as good as you! I’m so terrible” “You’re so much better than me!” “My art compared to yours is awful!”
So on So forth.
And let me just say, self depreciation is not a compliment. I feel terrible and guilty for my style when people say such things. and I just want to shout from the roof tops “YOU CAN DO IT TOO!” Because believe me, there is MANY MANY times, even till this day that I compare myself to other artist.
“Im not as good as them, Ill never be good as them” And its hard to look past your own insecurities to notice your growth.
Above I put some pictures of how I use to draw the Gorillaz compared to how I draw them now. Its takes time, certainly, but you can do it. You need determination and practice practice practice whenever you can. Youre never gonna improve unless you put in the hard work! And Im not saying ware yourself out over it, of course not. But….pick up a pencil when you feel like it and sketch. Keep going at it. And before you know it, you will look at old drawings and be like “Wow!…Look how far I’ve gotten”

Sorry Im not sure if this is helpful…but I just wanted to get it off my chest.

I want to hug you all the time tbh ;u; your art is super precious and youre adorably sweet Ive always wanted to know how you draw eyes cause its like my favorite part of your drawings but I'm also a little nervous to ask in case you aren't comfortable sharing.. but if you are do you think you could do a small eye tutorial?? ackkk im sorry 🙈 I can tell Im gonna regret sending this but I appreciate your blog and art and you so so much

hello sweet blossoms! ♡ ahh no worries, you’re too cute! let me give you a huge bear hug aww! (⊃ˆ❍ˆ(͈´ᵕ`͈✿)

I never imagined I’d get a nice message like this about the way I draw eyes, I’m flattered! (﹡ᵗ ꒳ ᵗ ﹡) I don’t really know what to say~~ ah! ♡

for my animal crossing styled chibis, I personally think the way I draw eyes is a little simple and straightforward 💦 I just kind of go with the basic shape of which ever eye I’m drawing! …and add a sparkle! ✧ so to me, they aren’t really unique or stand out much! (ꈍ ꒳ ꈍ)ゞ

(@mayor-aby, @cupcakecrossing and @mayor-peachy all have very amazing, super detailed, and unique eye styles! I looove the way they draw eyes~! ♡ they are my favorites! ♡)

SWEATS 💦 so because my eye style is rather simple, I’m really sorry that this tutorial is kind of short and basic~~ |ω`)゚・ (I’ve also never made a tutorial before so I hope this is okay!! ♡)

I don’t really think I’m the best for this, so I’m really very sorry! but I hope this helps at least a little bit maybe! (ˊ̥̥̥̥̥ ᗨ ˋ̥̥̥̥̥)و ̑̑ if you have other questions on this, feel free to ask! ♪

thank you again and good luck my dear!! ♡

Corroded Crank- my version.
His name is Spore. He’s somewhere between cyborg and robot.

He loves spending time in nature, specifically beside rivers and such. This has caused his stomach and head to rust apart.

The mycelium that’s growing in his head cavity makes his circuits frizz out sometimes, making him violent and unpredictable. The filaments do shed spores, but it’s not contagious.

He’s not fond of humans, and comes off as rather shy. He much prefers the company of the birds and small beasts like rabbits, mice, and even foxes.

Another really cool idea from @celestialclod is that he has a few little songbirds living in the hollow of his stomach. I quote, “they were scared and needed someplace to live.”

Guys, I apologize for having almost disappeared for several days, honestly, I don’t know how many they were; But I didn’t feel very well and I don’t feel quite right yet (more for the artistic or emotional side); All these days I was sick and I’m really not at all good yet but I feel much better to draw again; And on the other side … I wanted to rest a bit of drawing and all that since I didn’t feel very good there, I even thought of giving up and not continue drawing… I still don’t feel sure but thanks to important people; They helped me to see that it’s best to take it calmly and patiently from here onwards and mainly, to make my own style, one with which I feel safe or secure. I really thought a lot these days hehehe

Rambling about art and style. Feel free to skip.


For a while now, the act of drawing has been less enjoyable to me. There was even a time when I convinced myself that art was supposed to feel soul-sucking, and that I somehow unlocked its true nature by trying to learn more about it and should feel “honoured” (no and no). But that couldn’t be right, as I hadn’t always felt like this.

So, I tried to pinpoint when things began going downhill and realized that art started feeling like a chore the moment I turned to a painterly style - or rather, the moment the novelty of that painterly style wore off.

I’ve known for a while that I find painting boring. Don’t get me wrong, I think those sorts of styles are beautiful, and sometimes love what I have done with them… But the process has never been fun. Ever. It’s two hours of splodging colours together hoping they look alright, followed by 4-12 hours of “am I done yet?” and an eternity of “oh my god that nostril is out of proportion and it ruins everything”.

I knew this. I knew it in February when I switched from lineart to painting. I knew it in June when I almost considered giving up on art altogether. I knew it yesterday when I finished a painting (I didn’t like) and realized I could have done in two hours what I had done in six with a simpler style. 

I just couldn’t accept it, because it felt like I had come too far to change my style back.

Well, it’s not. Or at least I hope it’s not. I’ll still keep painting in my artillery for commissions and when I feel like making something extra special, and I’ve learned a lot from it, so I can’t be mad either. But I think it’s well overdue I try something new, something quicker, something more fun. Because I love art too much to let it be painful. 

Moral of the story: I’m a stubborn fool. But also (!!) change is okay and nothing to be afraid of, especially if it can fix something that’s making you unhappy. Even in art. Especially in art, if you’re anything like me and it’s your one constant.

It’s that time of year again, goodness me.

Okay so globally, 2017 sucked ass, but on a personal level it…wasn’t terrible? And, art-wise, it was definitely a huge improvement on 2016. I feel like I’ve really settled into a style of drawing that I’m actually happy with, and I’m excited to see where it takes me next year. My goals for 2018 definitely include drawing more people of colour, MORE GIRLS, and doing more of my own designs for characters.

This silly blog hit 8k followers this month, which is pretty wild. Thank you so much to everyone who followed me this year, to those who commissioned me, and those who’ve supported me on Ko-fi and Patreon. It really makes such a difference and honestly I couldn’t do this without you. And ofc you guys who’ve stuck with me for the past five years, I am not exaggerating one bit when I say I love you to pieces, thank you so much for your continued support.

Right gang, that’s about it. Have a wonderful New Year’s Eve, and a very merry 2018 indeed.

MERRY CHRISTMAS @blaze-edge, @mochidoodle, and @tandembicycles!

(posting early because my queue’d posts keep screwing up and knowing how I’m gonna feel after work tomorrow I’m gonna forget)

But anyway! I drew your favs in festive sweaters for some extra holiday goodness <3 I was playing with styles again, and at some point it ended up looking like some sort of Calvin Klein sweater advert and honestly I’m okay with that.

Hopefully you’re all okay with that too, and you all have a really good day!

OOOOOOHHHH, the sudden POWER you feel when you realize that your scanner works again, and that you obviously still can draw cartoonish caricatures of people (this is me), and draw them so badly that they won’t recognize themselves… So I am safe! What devilish thoughts run through my brain now.

Muahahahahahahahahahahahahahahah!

Actually, the only thing that works now is Manga style. And I can’t do Manga style… So… whatever… I still might throw in a drawing here and there. Maybe.

Um... Hi Golzy! Uh well I wanna ask u a question... see ive been drawing for a loong time and I'm just wondering what your opinion on using references is... I'm starting to draw anime and I get it that you need a reference for knowing how a certain character looks, but for certain things like posture, and eyes and other stuff like that... well I'm kinda nervous whenever I use those references... what's your opinion? Again, thanks for reading this, your art is amazing btw. ^^ stay awesome!!!

Don’t be nervous. Every artist need the references to draw (except to those who is a god who don’t need it O_O )

Like how I took heavily references on human anatomy and postures. and anime styles (>_>)

I spent my money to buy comic books and mangas just to read and analysing their artstyles. It’s also a good references anyway. Which makes me feel motivated to draw arts.

If you trying to make good art, use the reference and improvise it. ^^

A gift for the lovely @cutie-tabootie~

She had a rough day a while ago and I thought I’d draw her one of her favorite characters! :D I had a lot of fun messing around with this messy-ish style again. I was afraid that it wouldn’t look good on Twilight but I think it did heh. I hope you’ll feel better my friend~

Hope you guys like it! :D

Anon said: U are amazing precious bean that deserves all the love and all the happy

THANK YOU OMFG!!!!! So are you, anon!!!!!! *O*

Anon said: Oh my gosh. That fantasy AU is perfect. Seeing Kaminari all flustered is great. I especially love the way Kirishima and Bakugou call each other by their given names, and how Bakugou openly states Kirishima is really strong.

I’m happy you liked my take on it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I’m still working with that AU under the belief that Bakugou and Kirishima have known each other their whole lives, so the first names! Also Baku has no problems admitting Kiri’s strong in canon too, so!!!!! He’s a supportive bf, isn’t he haha

Keep reading

Thank you. I'm going to try to step out into this brave new world...just hope my writing is good enough to overtake my lack of drawing skills. Thank you again. :}

Here’s a thing:

THIS is actually one of the better pictures I did when I first joined the fandom, because I dare not show what was worse than this. The swtor fandom is where I had the most exploration of style and art learning since I was kind of fresh-off-of-Deviantart fresh when I started (aka green as heck). I’m still feel I’m kind of pants at my art, but there’s always encouragement in the fandom to get better.
I haven’t even touched a lot of writing because it’s more difficult to me than drawing, but sometimes I put up things here and there because of that encouragement.
Nosedive into it and no one is really gonna judge you. There’s tons of people who improve thanks to inspiration from games and communities giving them things to constantly create and enjoy.

YOU ARE TOO GOOD! Just looking at your art makes me wanna pick up Bloodborne again! i guess you hear this all the time but your style really reminds me of yoshitaka amano, and (like i wrote to delsinsfire) i feel so blessed to see this kind of style applied to bloodborne! Thank you so much for sharing your amazing work!!

Ahh gyahh you people make me blush so much………..!! (つ//ロ//⊂* )

Thank you thank you…! 
Yes, many people told me already, I finally could memorize his name…ww
But I am happy, because many told me, I discovered his beautiful art again like i saw in my childhood!!

 But I don’t really think I draw like him though… ・゜・(つД`)  and I don’t think it would be really good being a copy cat… wah
 (maybe it’s more likely a direction to asian dark fantasy? I think many artists draw similar!)

Here is a fan art from me to our adorable artist ;3 @xxefsxx
I drew for you your OC in Chibi style!! I wish you like it X3!!
And whatever u said I will still see you as a amazing Artist\Friend!!

I wished to draw for you a good art more than that :“’(
I am so sorry…I am being so busy! I still can’t believe that I had time to draw for you!! I am sorry again

anonymous asked:

I don't know if you're still taking art requests but would you be able to doodle some Ivor? :3 I really love how amazing he looks in your style ^w^

Aaaa thank you! Yes, I’m still taking requests, but they’re taking a bit longer than I first thought because I haven’t exactly been really proud of my art lately. I hope you like this, drawing Ivor is a bit of a stress-reliever for me so it was nice to draw. Thank you again and have a good day! <3
