So long time no drawings, but here I am again. Lately, I just haven’t been in the head space to create. It’s a complicated thing to explain, but I am feeling better lately.
This sloppy sketch is of an original character of mine. His name is Jun Skye, he’s 24, a singer, and lives in a frat house with a horde of other boys. Good boys haha. The reason I decided to draw him was because of who I based him off of years ago. If you are into K-Pop, you might know Jonghyun from Shinee recently passed away. I could go on and on about how much I loved them, how much I cried the last few weeks, but instead I wanted to just draw something quick.
There’s a photo out there of a similar depiction of Jonghyun, I didn’t trace or anything but I liked it so much I tried my best to remember it. So it’s not accurate since I didn’t use it as reference, but still. Even though this was a fast one, I would love to do another more direct tribute someday.
Also, I’m thinking about posting more of my own characters instead of random people like I have been. I did this drawing on a tablet I got for Christmas, and as you can tell I still need some practice. Hopefully this is the first of many new posts; thank you for reading.
So, I know I said Night Queen was next, but Christmas is coming faster than I can keep up.
This was inspired by Yamiio, but not traced or too similar hopefully.
Hope you all are doing well!
Well look who it is.
Sorry I’ve been away, so much has changed I can’t even explain. Anyway, I’m well and ready to carry on drawing!
Starting a Love Nikki drawing of the Night Queen outfit!
Seriously debated posting this, but it’s almost done, so why not. Hope you all had a safe and Happy Halloween!!!
Today is my birthday!!! And only a few days before Halloween!
I was almost a Halloween baby but you know how it goes. Oh well, close enough! My nails are orange, the decorations are up, and it’s starting to get super spooky.
Fall is my favorite season, because the cool weather mixed with the warm colors makes me feel some type of way. I also love all things spooky. My favorite director is Tim Burton, and I have posters of the Nightmare Before Christmas on my wall. Also a surplus of other merch from those movies. I love the Phantom of the Opera more than I can say, and I bought a lot of things from that too. My room basically looks like Jack Skellington lives here and has a daughter. My clothes are usually black white and gray, so is my purse, phone case, etc. But I’m more likely to buy something if there are cats on it.
I wouldn’t say I’m gothic, although I do love style quite a bit. I’d just like a good horror movie, and I love Halloween. That makes having my birthday so close all the better.
Also, a bit of bat girl progress for reading my ramble.
Current mood: Cat snuggles and pizza.
Lately, I have been back into sitting down with just my sketchbook again, and that’s what the top image is. Even though my artistic level isnt supreme, hanging out with just a small expectation for where it will go always helps me. Somehow, I like this way more than some of my fully completed pieces, even though it’s just pencil.
Still, sketches don’t serve for nothing, and that’s what I have to remember. Even if I don’t ink and color each and everyone, practicing anotomy and my style is a good use of my time. Plus, there’s less stress to make it perfect, so it’s more fun.
And this is a lil sneaky peek at my Halloween art!! Shhhh too early…
This has been driving me bonkers…
I don’t hate the way it came out but after I finished her things just stopped working for me. So even though it’s not 100% done, (seeing a trend with me here), I’m calling it quits.
This is a random drawing of Melanie Martinez from her Mad Hatter video, even though it’s not completely accurate. She’s just so cute and her sense of style always makes me so inspired. Of course her music does as well; she’s a fantastic song writer and really captivates you into her world. So I will probably do more of her in the future, but we’ll see.
Hope you are doing well!
