These are for my own reference, I didn’t even flip a couple of them so they could be really squiffy… but I like them enough to share. I should share more sketches… It feels weird though. A bit like flashing my underwear. These are the supportive undergarments to a finished image’s sparkling ballgown. O_O
Anyway, please enjoy my gals. :3 The lads will follow at some point in the future… (maybe during the next election judging by my progress on these things orz)
I don’t think I’ll ever stop asking myself why I made a comic about a carousel… X,D
I can honestly say that in the past, actually drawing the titular turning thing has been a huge barrier to me. Hopefully busting my ass and making a model like this will make things a touch easier… and I refuse to think of this as cheating. It’s still my skill that’s making this thing, I’m not just downloading it from the 3D warehouse… And when it’s done I still have to draw lights and chairs on the upper floor and swirly fancy detail bits and HORSES. No artist, except for the equestrially-inclined, actually wants to draw horses. Although at least some of the time it appears the horses have been removed…
I remember Sketchup being harder to use than this though. Probably a combo of the software being updated since I last tried it and having a computer that doesn’t choke when there’s a 3D shape on the screen!
Oh my gosh… a sudden load of followers happened last night. Hello! I’m kinda scared! But it’s lovely… thank you! I’ll try my best just to draw and post and not let my anxieties make me hide the stuff I draw from the world. Ehe. ^^;
Starting with this! Just a doodle of my bbys Bubblegum and Sundae from my webcomic, Rainbow Carousel. I so want to hide this because my style has changed once again, more manga… but I think I’m satisfied. So satisfied that I think I’ll be able to get my webcomic going very soon… after I’ve finished my dissertation… oh my gosh my dissertation… I’m totally urgh omg with that right now… *crumpled heap*
Just look at the pretty bishies with the gaudy colours slapped on them I’ll be under my duvet, seeking comfort from my cat…
(sorry if this appears twice Tumblr’s being a bit temperamental with me)
I watched a lot of Toddlers and Tiaras while drawing this one (I know it’s trash but I’m morbidly fascinated by that program and the concept of child pageants in general…). Anyways, these are the main guys from my webcomic Rainbow Carousel - L to R; Sundae, Bubblegum, Bourbon, Sherbet, Turps and Liquorice.
I find drawing males so hard. That’s why these are neater than the gals; I’ve spent ages making them right, deliberating over the lines and referencing off photos and stuff urghgh… I’m only posting these up because I sorta promised in the last picture! Otherwise I’d keep them to myself until I’m as confident with male figures as I am female figures. >_< These show no where near as much diversity as the ladies - I tried to make Sundae a more muscular and Sherbet a bit bigger, but they all ended up kinda similar in my eyes? I’m dubbing it Clamp bishonen syndrome; when your first experience of attractive manga males have bodies like noodles and you can’t shake yourself out of that rut years and yeaaars later. I have so much to learn. :/
Oh gosh, I’ll stop griping. XD I want Bubblegum’s drippy stars shirt and I love how Turps came out; he’s just how my mind sees him. :D And shoe diversity! Tempted to redraw the ladies shoes because they’ve totally been upstaged by these guys. XD
