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....

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...

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....

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;)

(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!
