Art Dump #003

I managed to get my scanner working! It took a lot of headaches with uninstalling and reinstalling drivers, but at last my scanner isn’t a cat bed anymore. Anyhoo, I bring drawings… but not many. I have been feeling more inspired this week since I’m getting back into writing, so maybe I’ll bring better things next time. Well, I’m just going to go ahead and add my pointless commentaries.

**Sidenote: All of these images are automatically hyperlinked by WP to open to its full size (most of these are about 2000×3000 I believe). Thanks WP! :U

Just Elda being a dick. LOL

IMG_0002

This one took more time than usual. I am making greater efforts to put details into drawings instead of just slapping on some flat, boring clothes and moving along. It’s tough though. But tough is good. Tough is a challenge, and the more challenges I meet the better I will become. I know I’ll never reach, like, Leonardo Da Vinci levels, but knowing that I gravitate more towards character designs I do want to become as good as that as I can get. Yadda, yadda, here is Elda posing with one of her staffs. I’m working on making her staffs operate like Sun Wukong’s Ruyi Jingu Bang (sp?) where it can extend, shrink, and do all types of nifty things. I’ll probably draw that out tonight.

I’m doing another NieR replay, and I came across that scene where Weiss makes fun of Kaine for always wearing lingerie in public, and then suggests that the lingerie she plans to wear to the King of Facade and Fyra’s wedding should have “spring colors”. So, I tried to put everyone in the type of wedding attire they would wear (LOL). I’m kind of snickering at Emil because I tend to go over the top when it comes to his fascination with adorable, girly things. Then there is Nier’s inability to ever wear a shirt and Weiss wearing a tie. Yeah… it looks about right to me. XD

IMG_0004

Another challenge: new poses. It took time drawing young Odin in a seated position, but it turned out decent compared to the rough sketch I did in the beginning. Eh… it’ll just have to do. *shrug*

IMG_0005

Yes, the ink is extremely light, but it is not the scanner’s fault. Whenever I do rough and quick sketches it seems like my pencil barely touches the paper, so… magnifying this one will help probably. All of that aside, I am still working out the process of Odin’s transmogrification into a dragon. I am set on him being consumed by fire, but how that turns into him being a dragon is still a working process. I’m also working on Elda’s process of becoming a dragon rider/dragoon. For now it’s just going to be like riding a horse because I’m entirely stumped. D:

 

I wish I was able to draw things like buildings and landscapes because I have so many ideas that I want to sketch out. Maybe I should just do it regardless of how shitty I think it will look, you know? I really have to get over this idea that every drawing needs to be done quickly. If I got over that then I could keep returning to the same drawing over and over until it looked infinitely better than the type of things I draw in a 20-40 minute span.

*sigh* Okay then. I’m going to tackle writing and drawing some more. Next time I might post an excerpt from the story if I feel confident enough with my progress to do that. I should also consider uploading some of these drawings to my website and deviant art whenever I find the motivation to. Blah…

Alright. That’s it for today. >_<

Not much to share today.

20150217_043037

I love drawing with permanent tools like gel pens. It’s kind of adventurous to go in knowing that if you make a mistake you’re either screwed or you’re forced to get creative with it. Anyway, ARMLESS ZERO. Zero is the best. ~_~

20150217_043107

I started working on this comic last year and then I just sort of stopped. Glad I saved it though instead of throwing it away like everything else.

20150217_043450

Just some hands and a face.

20150217_043203

Me and some flowers.

20150217_043225

Mark got me acrylic paint a while ago, and this is the first time I really got to use it. I just painted a cherry for the hell of it because why not?

20150217_043341

Quick sketch of Lorelei (or Odin’s mother in TMS).

If all goes well my next entry about my boring personal updates will be drawn instead of written. That is what I am working on in between sketches and doodles of random objects.

Oh! I found an artbook that I saved from the sixth grade. It is so horrendous. Like, I had this comic where Sailor Moon runs into Sephiroth, and it is the most random crossover ever. I was cracking up because back then I actually thought a villain like Sephiroth could be turned into this upbeat, friendly guy by spending a few hours talking to someone like Usagi. *sigh* I know better now. That book will never see the light of day if I can help it. And those Fatal Fury comics I did. Uggggh, I’m ashamed. Bye. (LMAO)

*Shulk voice* I’M REALLY FEELING IT.

Most of these drawings are old as balls, but at least I got around to uploading them… via camera no less. In my defense I’m really protective of my sketchbooks, so tearing pages out is a huge no for me. Soooo, that being said, please forgive the shitty quality. Also, get used to it since my patience with my current scanner is at 0% at this point. You get what you pay for, right? Word of advice: if a scanner is cheap it is probably for a reason. LOL. Okay, let’s move on with everything~

20150122_193940

This post is brought to you by Crayola, Hello Kitty, and Korean stationery supplies. Thanks for taking all my money~

20150122_193955

This is my art briefcase by the way. No, I am not 10. It’s just really cute. I’m a sucker for cute things. Leave me alone.

 

20150122_193418

Mark suggested I draw a self-portrait, and this is what happened. I probably don’t take things as seriously as I should as an artist. I know if I ever went to art school my teacher would just ban me from the class because I’ll just draw smiley faces on inappropriate things… like nude art. I actually do that in my sketchbooks. I’m not posting them though. I have some shame. D:

20150122_193439

Brace yourself for way more “The Millennium Sorceress (herein TMS)” than you ever wanted to see in one lifetime. Should I do the whole description thing? Eh… Why not. Top left corner, three doodles of Elda. Top right, Selene and Silas. Below them, Odin mid-transmogrification and then a less intimidating Odin. Bottom left, Aisne and Lorelei. Next to them, Bleiddian “Wolf” Wilder and his fellow assassin Kismette Ozatt. For those who endured my ever-changing “Mythos” stories in the past, Kismette is Giga’s mother, Wolf is Odin’s father, Lorelei is Odin’s mother, and Selene is the mother of Sebastian and Silvain. So, there is that. Think of this part of the story I am working on as a prequel to the “Mythos” I was working on in the past. ^^;;

20150122_193452

I got bored and tried to design my own superhero. She is “The Phantasm”, a ghost sent back to Earth to exact justice. Lame, I know. D:

20150122_193503

Never get tired of drawing Elda. She’s as fun to draw as Deedlit and Pirotess once were, so it makes sense to me. I’m also the type of nerd who obsesses over their own OCs so… there is that too. LOL

20150122_193543

*violin obsession intensifies* Let’s take it to the next level and have a character who is just a walking violin. Every time she talks it just sounds like a beautiful song that no one understands but appreciates. 😀

20150122_193605

I love how Elda started off as this really timid character and eventually morphed into the biggest dick in TMS. LOL. I kind of told myself that if I was a century old sorceress and had 900 years to go I would stop giving a shit. I’d just indulge in every pleasure imaginable and then burn anyone who tries to lecture me about the errors in my ways… which is pretty much what Elda does. She’s really not a bad person, just really selfish. Please don’t hate her. *protects Elda at all costs*

20150122_193623

That top photo is Elda’s resting face (aka “the bitchface”). She always looks like she’s about to beat motherfuckers up. It’s not even a game. XDD

20150122_193633

I’m not even set on making TMS into an RPG (though RPG Maker VX is tempting me), but I made some staffs. My writing is terrible so I’ll write it out here: (#1) The Nameless Grace, (#2) Spriggan Sigil, (#3) Vespertine, (#4) Spearhead, (#5) Pythia. I drew tons more but… eh. I’ll upload them another time.

20150122_193649

Giga suffers from serious Brock (Pokemon) syndrome until she gets pissed. Then she gives the signature death stare that goofy anime characters like to give when something is serious business. LOL. I am basing her entire personality on my cat Link. He is generally relaxed and playful (to the point of being destructive at times -.-) until food comes into the picture. That’s when he becomes a lvl. 99 douchelord. He’ll also give the death stare if you interrupt his sleeping or eating so… Giga is essentially a big lady cat if the cat ears did not give that away already.

20150122_193702

This is the Minthean elder’s shrine. Every forested domain as an elder, and she is pretty much an assistant to the all-goddess that all dryads worship. I don’t want to say elders are like queens because no one relies on them to set laws. The forest goddesses already tell the forested domains what to do via whispers from trees, flowers, grass, etc. that only dryads can hear. So, really, the elder is just a babysitter who has to tell wayward dryads like Elda: “Didn’t the all-goddess tell you to not do the thing? Why are you doing the thing?!” That is Elder Ozara (of Minthe) anyway. When it comes to the other six forested domains (Seligren, Xhulti, Yephrine, Bell Thevard, Ulveld, and Aalthea) the elders vary from being really strict to being way too lax. I have some drawings of them as well as their respective shrines, but I’m lazy. Another time perhaps. >_<

20150122_193715

Dude, it must have sucked for Zero to grow a fricking flower from her eye. On top of that a flower that is pretty much evil. So, yeah, that was the inspiration for this–Zero losing her shit because flowers are growing from her eyeballs. All of that aside, Taro Yoko is a major inspiration to me. He comes up with the most bizarre yet heartbreaking and amazing stories. I want to be like him someday. ;_;

20150122_193736

Listening to “Atom Dance” from Bjork’s new album made me think about how neat it is to be composed of the same microscopic building blocks (aka atoms) as planets, stars, and all of that stuff. I had this borderline pothead philosophy that everyone is controlling their own universe without even realizing it, and then I drew it literally. I promise this is not a tired lady hula hooping the solar system, as hilarious and terrifying as that would be.

20150122_193800

This is the front of my sketchbook. Use metallic colored pencils on your sketchbooks, man. It looks great. As for that sticker I don’t even know who or what “Empire” is. All I know is that Mark was like: “Hey, someone gave me this. You want it?” and then I was like: “Please! My story takes place in an empire! It’s perfect!” So, there it is. My baby~

20150122_193807

Gold looks *nice* on black surfaces. Holy shit. I like Odin’s cover more than Elda’s cover because IRL it looks so vibrant. Like, Elda’s cover won’t even pop unless it’s under bright light, but Odin’s cover is always shiny. I like gold. Gold and black everything from this moment on. >_<

20150122_193832

This wasn’t even in my sketchbook. I just didn’t want to work with my scanner, as I mentioned before. Anyway, nothing new. Just Elda wearing something fancy and looking pissed off while doing so.

*phew*

Alright, that is everything I am sharing today. I do more writing than drawing these days, but I’ll post whatever I can when I can. Actually, it is my goal to one day turn this blog into 80% drawings and 20% text posts. Even if I have to draw about the crap going on in my life and take a picture it would be great practice, you know? I have so much practicing to do. I think I’ll pick up some scrapbook backgrounds from Jo-Ann’s so the pictures I take will have fancy borders around them. Yeah, let’s do that!

Okay. That’s all.

Thanks for enduring this messy art dump. ‘Til next time! ♥

…Getting spirited away to Telluria would be a terrifying experience. XD

TIAC3DP: Part 4

This one was pretty easy to draw, so it didn’t take much time.

1358632-IdCvDt44Sou1u6y-

The recording for this is a little confusing. I know. I was about to start on my ‘air’ drawing, but I got bored and started doodling a mascot. When the mascot got boring, I started drawing Mark. So, this is Mark.

TIAC3DP: Part 3

Recording of drawing here.

I regret starting off with that dark gray color. This would have looked so much better if it was nothing but blues and greens. Bah. No point in would-haves and should-haves, right? I will work on fire, earth, and air really soon! And use the right colors! 😀

 

TIAC3DP: Part 2

Dany fanart! Whoo! I don’t know why it took me so long to make one. I finally got around to signing up for the Colors gallery, so you can actually watch me draw her over here.

…That’s all I have for now. D:

This Is A Colors! 3D Post: Part 1

In the same fashion as my ACNL posts, I will begin posting my drawings from Colors! 3D from time to time with photos + comments.

Since I consider my deviantart page as my digital gallery, I really don’t want to upload my little 3Ds doodles there. Mind you, I am only posting my Colors!3D doodles in here–not pencil and paper doodles. Ever since I watched a video in the app of someone drawing the most beautiful picture I have ever seen in my life with nothing but the Colors! 3D app, I told myself that I can do great things with it if I practice.

So, consider this practice.

It will be mostly Mythos related art since I’m about 100 pages into the story and really obsessed with it. Yes, I am obsessed with my own story. It’s sad. I know. But it does produce art…so it’s a win-win. LOL. Anyway, just two for today. I will add more later.

HNI_0077

I love drawing Elda so much. Probably because I combined a lot of my favorite heroines–both physically and emotionally–into this one character. So, it’s only natural. *pets creepily* Anyway, first picture of my ongoing practicing mission.

HNI_0088

Yo. I’m getting tired of people telling me that Odin has a long nose like it’s not okay. HIS NOSE IS SUPPOSED TO BE LONG. >:U

That’s it for today. I really have to find a way to upload the drawing recordings online. The app actually records every stroke I made and makes a video out of it. It’s really neat! Once I figure that out, I’ll add videos as well.

Nabooru

Image

This was drawn on the 3DS (Colors! 3D). It’s not a bad app, but drawing with that stylus is taking some time getting used to. Anywho, she looks like she’s cosplaying Crimson Viper in this drawing. Just add some amber shades…aw yeah~

Image

Used a red pen for this one. It’s always stressful drawing in pens, but I love how bold it turns out in the end.  Also, I’m slowly but surely mastering the art of blending my mistakes into the drawing and making it look like it was meant to be. Fufufufu~

Nabooru is so fun to draw. Gotta do more of that. One thing I love about the gerudos is that they wear vivid makeup colors that you don’t see on a daily basis, so I’d love to draw Nabooru with neon green, silver, turquoise, and so on.

In time….

Profiles: Odin and Elda
