Haven't done much except for some schoolwork the past week or so. I started to re-read sunshine again, and even though I'm not usually a fan of vampire novels, I really like this one. And even though Sunshine almost never stops describing Con's hideous looks, in my mind he will always look like Adrian Brody.

Anyway, I worked on one of my assignments a bit, and I've decided that instead of trying to do every illustration style I can possibly manage, I'll try to channel my focus into two main styles. I won't go into detail about what those styles are, but this is one of them:

++++++++++ )

Anyway, my sister's managed to find and download (how did she manage it? I couldn't when I tried) the really old Monkey Island games, and is having the time of her life.
Although, when she talks to me while she plays it, she sounds more than a little schizophrenic.

[livejournal.com profile] steam_pilot says: That is so 1993. Seriously.
[livejournal.com profile] heart_mint says: BUT IF A WOODCHUCK COULD CHUCK AND WOULD CHUCK SOME AMOUNT OF WOOD, WHAT AMOUNT OF WOOD WOULD A WOODCHUCK CHUCK?
[livejournal.com profile] heart_mint says: shut up i'm lolling
[livejournal.com profile] heart_mint says: EVEN IF A WOODCHUCK COULD CHUCK WOOD, AND EVEN IF A WOOD CHUCK WOULD CHUCK WOOD, SHOULD A WOODCHUCK CHUCK WOOD?
[livejournal.com profile] heart_mint says: A WOODCHUCK SHOULD CHUCK IF A WOODCHUCK COULD CHUCK WOOD, AS LONG AS A WOODCHUCK WOULD CHUCK WOOD.
[livejournal.com profile] heart_mint says: man, all the good games were back then



Anyway, I had a hankering for Smallville fics a while ago, so I pretty much read everything I came across and drew some fanart. Not really sure if I should post it because it's not great... but maybe if I ever get around to colouring it.

I've been working on some paintings for the Vancouver Art Box Show for the past few days. I got 3 boxes, which was actually one more than I really should've gotten...

Anyway, I was trying my hand at acrylics. I could count the number of times I've really painted with acrylics on my hands, and it's the first on wood... so I guess it was more of a learning experience than much else.

Anyway...

I keep putting off my design projects to work on illustration projects. I guess that shows where my priorities lie.

I had to choose a musician to draw for a hypothetical illustration for the Rolling Stones magazine, and since one of my classmates accused me of being unable to draw men, I decided to take him up on the challenge.

I chose to draw Farin Urlaub, of die Ärzte fame. I wanted to try another method of CG to see if it works better for me. I'm not too sure if I like it or not, but I think I'll have to try it a bit more to really decide. So here are the steps I took and stuff. Not a tutorial by any means, just showing some progress.


Steps I took and finished product )

Man, my life is dull.


++++++++++ )

Also, my copy of the Fables Covers book finally arrived!



It's so beautiful..! It's pretty awesome as well, it includes progress and thumbnails, and it's a great price for such a big book.
I found out today that James Jean is having a show in New York... the day after I leave. How disappointing...

And also, a painting I did for practice:

A portrait

I drew a portrait for self promotion. It's on my business card right now, but I may change the entire concept from the bottom up.

I'm... uhm... I'm not sure what else to say.

I'm very tired. I think I'll go to sleep now.

I was CGing today because I haven't cged in forever.
A quick doodle of one of our older stories that me and Schumie may try and put together to pitch to a company. Hey, it's worth a shot.

He looked a lot like Metis, so I changed his looks.

[livejournal.com profile] heart_mint asked (told, made, whatever'ed) me to draw something for the VnD layout, so I drew this.


Great Circus )

BLAH.

Fucking Schumie's away on vacation, leaving me at home to tend to the kids.

*shakes fist at Schumie* I'LL REMEMBER THIIIISS.

Anyway, I was working on the one-shot, except I got pretty sick of working on it (I guess I'll try to work on it in a bit), so I started to doodle some older characters.

Old character from an old story, but me and Schumie are thinking about picking it up again.


Character. And his room. Cause. Everyone wants to see his room. )

Honestly, I think that in my mind, somehow, Hobohodou and Phoenix are two different people. Is that weird?

Anyway, I did some sketches of Hobohodou (practicing abs cause I was annoyed at myself for not being able to draw them). I still can't draw abs very well. More practice for me I s'pose.


hobohodou )


And another scribbly doujin, this one was where I was practicing cleaning pencil scans so it's a bit cleaner. I hate cleaning pencil scans.

Not much of a pairing, maybe Kristoph + Phoenix friendship? You can probably read it as Kristoph/Phoenix if you really wanted to.

Spoilers for 4-4


I hate you )

And... SO MUCH LOVE TO [livejournal.com profile] hiphopelephant FOR HELPING ME PRUNE THE DIALOGUE CAUSE IT REALLY SUCKED BEFORE YOU CAME ALONG.

I finished the illustration that's due today, it took less time than I thought it would.


schizophrenia )

I also finished the background for a magazine layout, which took less time than I thought it would.
And to celebrate, I had to go into pchat to draw Apollo Justice fanart!


HERE COMES JUSTICE (don't worry, no spoilers) )

Finally finished colouring the goddamn lineart.


YEAH, STILL HER )

I've finished putting the copy on too, so I have to start my other illustration that's due on Friday. Hopefully I can manage to simplify it enough that it won't take SO long.

Edit: Oh yes, in case you were wondering, this is the Chinese creation myth.

Edit2: Oh yes, remember The Shipyard painting?
It's for sale ($950, frame and matte included) so if you're interested give me a hollah.

Wow, so much to do for this week.

1. Finish lineart and colouring (and text) for diagrammatic graphics class. For tomorrow.
2. Finish illustration (due on Friday). Actually it'd help if I started this.
3. Finish magazine spread (due on Monday). I should start this too.
4. 28 Page Grid assignment. (I'll mark this as done.)
5. Site for calendar project (God-DAMN-it I don't wanna work on this)

On the bright side, I don't think I have any homework for web design or branding.

Anyway, I pretty much spent all day working on the first part of the lineart for this:

Still Nuwa )

And I wanted to play Apollo Justice all week too. v___v

Edit: In AP, I get all happy whenever I get to talk to Phoenix. It's... kinda pathetic, actually.

I finally got around printing the posters!
It was funny when I had to phone in to pay for them.

Me: Uhh, I'd like to pay for an order I placed?
Him: Are you [Nuu]?
Me: Yes?
Him: Did you design these?
Me: NO. I mean yes. I mean... *squeak*
Him: They're really nice.
Me: Uh, thanks. Uh.. *squeak*

But I eventually managed to tell him my credit card info, and in the "delivery instructions" I had written "PUT INTO OPAQUE BAG".

I got them delivered to a friend, who said the delivery person gave her a weird look. Then she told me there were puppies inside the bag.


ANYWAY. )

Oh, right. If you'd like to buy a poster, please head on over to the STORE

Here's the oil painting I did for my school's fund raising class:

The Shipyard )


Nu-Wa )

I am retarded.

Anyway, here is a sketch of the character, FILIT. Whose name I've been spelling wrong for the past 2 WEEKS.
And no, he's not Metis.


How the hell do you spell your own character's name wrong? )
pilot_star: (Default)
Those three things are entirely independent, so I'm not making random observations about sketches or Valentine's Day, because my random observations aren't very observant anyway.

Michi wanted to see Charles x Metis as well.
Well, okay.


Not exactly NSFW, but I wouldn't look at it if I were at work )

Hm... And Valentine's Day.
I drew this pic for some Valentine's Day Cards being sold over at Iris Print. A bit late to advertise it now, I s'pose, but better late than never.
EDIT: THIS IS NOT A HONEYSYN PIC. THEY ARE NOT HONEYSYN CHARACTERS.


Valentine's )

And finally, the Random Observation.
TL;DR )

I'm pretty cranky right now, and I'm not even sure why.
I thought it was gonna snow last night, but it eventually turned into rain and melted everything away. That's probably why.

Anyway, last night was Chinese New Year's Eve (Happy Chinese New Year) so I went to grampa's house to have dinner.
Where I drew this, since I was just sitting around watching stupid Chinese soaps.


Death of the Prognosticator )


Anything else?
Oh yeah, I also drew Filit when he found Sober.

The Second Seal )

Lunch

It's lunch, and since I ate like an hour ago, I guess that means I just sit around waiting for the teacher to arrive again (since she still need to go over with me about what needs to be revised for my homework.)

Anyway, I decided to try my hand at CGing again yesterday since I (finally) finished Devil Summoner (Belial is hot) and didn't feel like doing homework or working on projects or anything productive like that.

For the longest time I was using a photoshop brush at whatever opacity I happened to use it at (usually flex between 30 - 60% or so) but I finally turned on opacity jitter for pen pressure.
And wow, what a difference it made.


Read more... )

Edit: I took a photo of the painting that's due at the end of the week to show my mom cause she really wanted to see it.
It's... I dunno, it seems pretty incomplete to me but I don't know what to do with it.
I guess I'll post it around to ask for some advice.

Landscape painting )

I'm generally annoyed, because I have a painting due by the end of the week that I need to finish.
If it really is due at the end of the week, that wouldn't be so bad, but I need to glaze it by then, which means allowing at least 5 days or so for it to dry, meaning I really need to finish it TODAY.
And the last thing I want to do, is work on it.

In any case, on Saturday I basiccally sat down and CGed this.

Godspeed again )

Blargh.

Relatively uninteresting. )

So, I was just daydreaming, basically, and I came up with this design for a character.


Godspeed )
