I realized that where people live has a big effect on their art, *at least it does on me. It’s usually grey and rainy where I live and I feel more comfortable drawing with subdued, desaturated colors, but I can’t for the life of me draw something bright and happy. Even when I try to, they come out a bit dark or terribly colored. boo
Anyways, this was a fun speedpaint. I was dissatisfied with my last drawing after I woke up and decided to do something that’s more natural for me.
[Edit] I decided to do another one, looks like I’ll be up for a while heh.

School stuff took longer than expected but I still drew grey pone. Good night.

I’ve had some really bummer news recently on top of a giant pile of work and research left to do, but I got something awesome in the mail! International orders take a long time to ship so I almost forgot about these, but they’re finally here :D The right one is incentive to get better at Japanese and the left book is a fantastic animation/drawing reference (plus who doesn’t like FLCL?). I’m happy now, time to work extra hard!

Quick sketch break. Back to endless work now, eugh.

Been trying to sketch more cleanly, figured out a way to render cleanly and quickly over it. Also I’ve been drawing these fish things a lot lately, and I like the designs. Not very creative but hopefully over time they’ll change to something more original.
Also, thanks for the feedback everyone, looks like I’ll be saving for a new tablet then. Mine is a monoprice which is why I asked how the wacoms are since that’s the brand I plan on upgrading too, although this piece of crap did well for 2 years considering its $40.

Hey, anyone who uses wacom tablets I’d appreciate feedback. Does your cursor jitter when you move slowly, quickly, or don’t move at all? I’m using a POS and I thought the jitter was normal or that its just really accurate and I must be shaky, but I’m getting the feeling that other people don’t have this problem as much.
It’s turning me off of digital when I have to redo a stroke 10 times or turn on stabilizer which completely removes any nuance.

Ok here’s what I did digitally today. I keep taking month long breaks between painting and its hitting me hard. I’ve gotten better at drawing people from imagination tho, so that’s good.

I expected it to be a moe blob slice of life before I watched it, god I was so wrong. I really really enjoyed Madoka, and I love how soul tearing and hopeless it is in story (at least until Madoka turned into captain planet).

Pretty stiff and poopy, but it’s a start. I said I was going to learn to animate better at the beginning of the year, so I guess this is the start of doing that more seriously. I’m gonna pick up some books on it and try to study it formally like everything else, but holy hell animating is hard and tedious.
Also, mainly posting this since I’m gonna be kind of inactive on here for a bit despite it being spring break. I’m spending most of my time on studies so there’s nothing interesting to post. Stuff like this probably won’t pop up again unless its interesting, so don’t worry about me spamming tons of shitty loops, this was just a test haha. Enjoy your break guys, whenever it is.
