Whoops, I sorta phased out of existence for a bit longer than intended. I needed a break a few weeks ago so I stepped away from tumblr and dA for a bit.
I kept drawing a bit though! I did take the week of Valentine’s totally off because I was exhausted all week. I think I was fighting off illness or something. It felt like I was either at work or in my bed the whole week.
In any case, I’ve been holding out on posting any Joybaps because I’m still working on her design, but on the other hand I’ve got all these drawings laying around. These are posted fairly in order of drawn. I moved away from the yellow/pink because I realized I was doing THAT YELLOWQUIET THING where I try to draw Fluttershy but not. :V But I dunno, maybe it’s different enough.
I’m open to critique, comments or ideas as her design is still fairly liquid.
I have a bit more to post so I’ll smash that in the next one on its own.
Here’s some assorted daily draws from the past few weeks. Sorry for the silence. There’s some other stuff, but I’m not ready to share any of it yet. I’ve successfully draw at least one thing, sometimes more, everyday for over a month and some change now. Who knows if it’s helping.
I’ll work on posting art daily or at least when I’m able because again, some of it I’m not ready to share and some is conceptual stuff that may or may not contain spoilers (jazz hands).
And thank you to those who sent me nice messages a few weeks ago when I was really down. I was really down again tonight so I read them again and it brought me back up a little. <3
Chose to keep the sketchy line look to be fair to what it’s compared to. Still took something like an hour and a half.
I guess I tightened up a few things in my style in 2 years. It’s not the mindblowing progression some folks have in the same amount of time, but I guess it’s alright. If I practice more this year maybe it’ll happen.
Just some more back to basics. Sorry it’s been a lot of same face lately and not a lot of variety. I’m trying to nail down inconsistencies with portions of the way I draw faces. Namely with the cheek placement and muzzle position and length.
A lot of this week has been spent just trying to get this figured out. Actually, I’ve drawn everyday for a good two or so weeks now I think? I’d have to double check, but in any case it’s a lot more than I used to. I tried something similar back in late October, but only made it about halfway into November. If I’m not uploading something everyday it might be something personal, or me just wanting to draw for myself. :p
Slapping some color in there was maybe a mistake but eh, I was just foolin’ around.
Drawn almost entirely while throwback listening to:
Oops, forgot to upload the left one last night. I’m in that mood again; make random filly guides all over the place while experimenting with faces.
I gotta learn to make appealing color schemes one of these days. If I drew the filly again, I’d take that yellow more into yellow territory. The other I’m mildly satisfied with? I wanted a lemon-lime-mango-fruit horse so I was trying to stay in the orange/yellow/lime green realm.
