Slightly better attempt

So this is the second watercolor pencil drawing I've done. I think it turned out alright, I really enjoyed shading with the different colors. It's peach/nectarine thingy. I'm gonna keep practicing with the watercolor pencils and try to make more awesome stuff.

I bought some new brush pens from Faber-Castell, the ones with shades of gray. I'll be experimenting with those and see what I come up with.

And as always, copyright on the image.

Watercolor Attempt #1

So this is my first attempt at a watercolor pencil painting/drawing. Nothing really cohesive, just random explorations. I wanted to get more comfortable with the medium. So far, it's pretty interesting to use...I'm going to try the palette technique next so the look will come out a bit differently.

Butterfly Girl

This is a quick sketch/ink drawing that I did on Sunday after the CAM-JAM I went to. I was still on a roll from all the drawing and the inking, and combined with an episode of Kara no Kyoukai...this is what resulted.

For some background reference, the episode of Kara no Kyoukai I was watching showed a girl with long, black hair while she was standing on the edge of a building. That scene was cut along side with a butterfly flying around in the dark. I thought it was a very poignant moment and I wanted to capture the feelings it gave me. The theme, obviously, was flying.

This was actually one of my first, personal, drawings I've done and inked with pen. I hope do more like these in the future as a part of a series, but no guarantees.

Day One

So in efforts to motivate myself and push my creative juices to the limit, I decided to start blogging my sketches and work once in awhile. It'd be a good way to keep track of my progress and since people would be seeing this, I can't be sucky or lame about this. No one likes a lazy person.

My highest priority goal right now, is to finally sit down and design a website for my portfolio. I'm giving myself until the end of March to do this. It doesn't even have to look super amazing, I just need to put a decent amount of effort into it and then I can adjust as necessary. I can do this.
