コミケ75

Went to Comiket today (as well as yesterday)
and spent way too much money for my own good! Yaaaaaay
Unfortunately I didn't get to take any pictures
while I was at Comiket since I was helping my friendwith her dojinshi stuff... but here's what I got:

Ta-daaaaaa

Pretty girls with pretty outfits...

Shirow Miwa made Luki/Noki candy!
Too cute... I don't think I can ever make myself actually eat these.

the waltzing horses


Concepts: pick an instrumental song and illustrate accordingly.
I chose Shostakovich's Jazz Suite No. 2- Waltz.
The music is very merry-go-round-y, so I decided to go with
some centaur-y girly creatures.
Also ribbons. Love them ribbons.

気持ちが沈む

Snake. Corel Painter is strange.


God, life is so frustrating right now.
SO much work and stuff and ... emotional poop that's just killing me.
I keep telling myself, "oh, once this week is over everything will be fine"...
I've been doing that for the past month. WTF.
Why can't I just be... good?

Brian's roller girl assignment.
She's Little Red Riding Hood with a side-kick basket thing.
Maryland flag colors. I had a lot of fun. Blah.

art prompt of the week #4


So we skipped a week... or two... but prompts are back!
This week: Pet(s) suggested by Alison.
I knew I wanted to do something that was bondage-ish,
so I decided to do these girls who were being sold off as
exotic pets to filthy rich rare animal enthusiasts.
Classifieds section for them would go something like this
I guess:

Rare twin angels for sale. Minimal bruising,
in excellent condition.
Includes full set of discipline/training/breeding materials.
Stunning example of its kind.
Has cleared all medical examination. Cash only.

I lost interest in it after I did the skin. Maybe you can tell (-3-)

黒百合の花嫁


Inspired by kit-cat's dove/high priestess.
I guess this counts as fanart? :)
Trying out a more expressive inking look. I dunno.

art prompt of the week #3


Ok, so this week was my turn. I chose pin-ups.
This is obviously half-assed and... sad... more like just a SLUT than a sexy pinup D:
Sexy librarian/teacher lady. Done. Whatever.

Next week is Alison's turn. I will try harder.

2 minutes. Maybe 5.


5 minutes.



2 minute gestures.

st. johns cologne 1968


Doodle from Taschen's wonderful 60s fashion -vintage fashion and beauty ads- book.
It's cropped all weird because I had another drawing there that had nothing to do with the pic. I'm so sorry, lady on the very left (;3;)

SNAAAAAAAKE!


Ink ink ink. Metal Gear is love.

art prompt of the week #2


Second prompt : steampunk, chosen by kit-cat.

I'm not really familiar with steampunk, so this is just a guess of what COULD be steampunk, MAYBE: alchemist's daughter, big skirt, corset-ish thing, mechanic arm thing, flask etc.

Trying out some more digital painting. I work so much faster when I ink and scan, so I don't think I'll be turning in any assignments for class that are digi-painted.
Still, fun to do! (especially when it's dreary and rainy outside) :3

I get to choose next week... hmmmmmm....

Ashe

Ashelia of Dalmasca from Final Fantasy XII.
Haven't played the game, but I like her outfit :D
Sure, it's a lot of thigh plus a tad slutty for a princess, but whatever.
I guess she can wear what she wants.

art prompt of the week #1


So my roommates/friends and I are doing these prompts that each of us takes turns to think of. Pretty straightforward stuff, it's nice to have some "theme" that all of us take a stab at.

The first prompt : military uniforms, chosen by Marika
This chick is a sexy Bolshevik commie who loves ribbons, riding crops, and her fierce doberman pinscher. I just adore uniforms in general, so this was a real fun doodle to do (>w<)

Hopefully Marika will upload hers soon...

リザードン、君に決めた!


Just some dragon-ish thing that I thought would be nice with some charizard coloring. And a flame on its tale. I dunno.

Survivor


Character Development homework.
I have a grayscale cellshaded version as well, but I'm kind of having mixed feelings for that one... so no post of that :)

Friday, September 12, 2008

nu-ay


So for our first assignment for character development we had to design a figure playing a musical instrument (create an interesting silhouette, shape, exaggerate etc)


It's a "Nue", which is basically a Japanese version of a chimera (tiger body, snake tail etc.)
It's also a kind of a thunder-tiger-monster, so I put all sorts of thunder motifs EVERYWHERE.
The instrument is a taiko drum, although I considered a rockin' electric guitar or whatever too.

---

Being in CD made me realize that I really enjoy seeing other people's work...!
I just really enjoy being around illustration people so much.
Sure, they make me nervous sometimes when I think about all the competition around me, but still! Sooo fuuuun I loooove illustraaaation....

SPANK ME


Wow I've been posting a lot. Hope I can keep this up...
Played with gouache. I'd like to do more stuff with it.
Went to life drawing class and did gesture drawings too big to scan, so none of that stuff. Our model was great (although he had a very fuzzy ass) and I had a nice time.
It feels good to be drawing naked people from life again (;w;)

青龍偃月刀少女

I should really finish stuff and not let them be these "half-done-I-got-tired-of-it" things.

Sunday, September 7, 2008

Eh

Doodle-doo.

I love you dearly MP470


(I obviously like drawing girls)
Just a scan from the sketchbook.
Brought back my copic markers from home, so I've been experimenting with them.
It feels nice to use them again, although I probably won't be using them
for class assignments since all my teachers seem to DESPISE markers with a fiery passion...
Will scan more soon!

back to school

summer vacay is over, and I'm back in school.
the new room i live in is AMAZING i have a big desk omg orgasmic.
nobody is really back yet, although my roommate seems to have dropped off
some of her stuff and vanished.
sooo jetlagged. sooo hungry.
i feel like i have lots to take care of, but I'm too lazy to really do anything about
it now... must go to rite aid eventually...

since I've been neglecting this blog all summer, I think
I might scan some of the summer doodles and upload them soon...
where the hell is my scanner?

TKY!

Aaahhhh home. Being away from school is soooo niiiice...
So school is out and I'm back home in Tokyo.
I haven't been doing anything yet, really...
I did have a nice birthday and have been sleeping as much as I'd like (which is A LOT)
I should be doing more art and be trying to get a job...
But whatever. It's only been a week since I've been back... so... yeah...



Gwendolyn from Odin Sphere.
God I just love her design... How do you come up with something like this?

Narrative Ill homework; "Poor Old Mr. Death"

He visited my family
And then he stole my mother
My mother who was everything
Loving, strong, wise, and beautiful
The sun was sucked out of my sky

グチ

いろいろとすごく疲れた。

長い間スランプに陥ってる気がする。どーしたら抜け出せるんだろ…
何を描いても満足な絵が描けない。なんだこれ。
夏になれば回復できるだろうか。
もっともっともっと絵がうまくならないと、自分の存在意義が消えてなくなりそうでこわい。
頑張らないと。死ぬ程頑張らないと…。
