mood: I want to draw but idk what...
I REALLY WANNA PRACTICE LIKE POSES AND STUFF RIGHT NOW, BUT. Idk how to find poses I want to draw.
I know posemaniacs is a thing and a good reference site, but I just... don't like working off of their models... idk, it's just the fact that they're not real people and these strange MUSCLE BEINGS that makes me not want to draw from posemaniacs. I know it's important to understand muscle structure, but still. """"orz
I also really wanna practice expressions off of real people's expressions, but idk. REFS. I'm lazy.
Idk where I'm going with this. I mostly just wanted to whine about the fact that I can't find any refs I want to draw, haha. xD Maybe it's just the fact that I feel weird looking up stuff to draw, idk.
BUT YEAH... maybe send me some pose refs or face refs, if you're willing to...? It can be of anyone, maybe like celebrities and people that you like. idk. IDK!!! I just want to practice, and I'm too embarrassed to look up refs. orz (??? I don't get it either, waughlkd)
Okay yeah. Sorry for showing up out of nowhere to post this, haha;;; I'LL GO POST SOME ART IN MY OTHER WORLDS NOW, SINCE I HAVEN'T DONE THAT IN A WHILE. ;u;> I'll also post about animore eventually.
OH! I'll also be chilling at KATSUCON next weekend!! :^D Aw yeh.
Mood: Studying hoo hoo...
Heyo! My first artist alley booth was this past weekend! :D I don't have a ton of time right now, but I'll try to post more about it this coming weekend, when I have some free time. >:Y Overall it was a good experience, but a little slower than I expected because of the IMMENSE AMOUNTS OF SNOW THAT CAME THROUGH THE MID-ATLANTIC AREA...
But yeah, more about that later.
On a completely unrelated note... I really hate 90's fashion. "orz I KNOW THIS CAME OUT OF NOWHERE, BUT... This is something I think about when I try to imagine what Gabe, Stefan, and Noland were like in high school. Especially Gabe. I have no idea what kind of EDGY FASHION existed in the 90s except like... grunge, I guess? And that looked like, idk...
??? Maybe? I was barely alive in the 90s. But I'm not about that greasy looking long hair, yo.
And then everything else I'm finding is like,
Why do all the dudes look like literal squares. EVERYTHING LOOKS... SO BOXY... AND LARGE. Look at the sleeves on the dude on the far right! WHAT THE HECK, MAN! THE T-SHIRT MIGHT BE TOO BIG FOR YOU IF IT'S REACHING YOUR ELBOWS...
So yeah. I'm just like... idk what Gabe and Stefan would look like in the 90s, these fashion trends are just beyond me. "orz Maybe I just need to do more searching and actual research. -u-/
ANYWAY. Enough about that. Gotta do some homework, yo. ;o
Just 'cause I like how it came out, hahaha. THIN LINES...!! I remember in 2013 when I entered college, I was super into thin lines, and was actually pretty good at using them. I wanna get back into that! >:Y But it's difficult, haha;;; For some reason, though, eyes are really hard for me to draw using thin lines. GOTTA PRACTICE, I GUESS...!
I like how the coloring came out for this, though, even though it's so simple. Maybe I'll try to do a nice finished drawing with thin lines and this kind of shading........... eventually.
This is the nicest I've drawn Lafayette's hair. I’m also surprised I drew him not making a crazy face, for once. :Y
Okay, that's all. :^)
Mood: FULL OF FOOD AND IN NEED OF A SHOWER... and also sleepy.
I kept forgetting to mention, but GUESS WHAT! I'm leaving for Japan, tomorrow!!! 8^D I'll be there for the next month, actually, haha. I'll be in Tokyo with my family for the next week, but after that I'll be taking culture classes at ~*~KANAZAWA UNIVERSITY~*~ with about 15 other American students. SHOULD BE EXCITING...!!! I'm happy to be able to practice my Japanese, 'cause I haven't really used it in a whole semester. orz I'M SO OUT OF PRACTICE...!!! I should practice kanji... I always say that, but I never practice reading or writing kanji. -u-/
BUT YEAH! I should still have internet access (on Christmas, too), so I should be able to get my SS drawing up on time! >:U I finished sketching and scanning it today, so I'm gonna work on coloring it on the flight to Japan. *U*b 14 HOURS.... HOORAY.......;;;
OH! One last thing, but my Fire Emblem keychain charms came in the mail this week!!! :^D Here's some pics:
They're a little smaller than I thought they were gonna be, but whatevz. I think I'll try doing 2 inch charms, next time! >:Y
I haven't ordered the cellphone straps or anything yet, so I guess that's the next thing to do. Hope these sell okay at Animore! *u*/;;
Okay, that's all. I gotta get ready for bed soon, so... yeah. -v-/
AWRIGHT, SECRET SANTA WISHLIST TIME.
Hey, Secret Santa, thanks for taking the time to draw something for meeeee. ;u;/ Here's some stuff for you to choose from!
1) Any of my characters!
You can find a lot of them on my weebly page HERE, but here's some of my OCs that I'd specifically like art of. :^D
Couples (if you're feeling ambitious):
If none of these appeal to you, feel free to look through the super sloppy weebly page for someone you'd want to draw! :^D
2) Anyone from Gekkan Shoujo Nozaki-kun!
*U*/ I like all of the main characters, but my favorite character is Mikoshiba Mikoto.
As for couples (again, only if you're feeling ambitious haha), I like:
Although technically, I just... like anyone... If you draw anyone from GSNK, I'll probably be happy. xD
3) Any of my fav smash bros characters!
Thanks to Roy being DLC in the new smash bros game, my love for SSB has been rekindled. ;u;/ My fav characters are:
I also think of Marth and Roy as friends, so if you drew them together, that'd be cool with me haha. :^D
I know I linked to their official outfits, but honestly you can draw them in anything you want. DESIGN YOUR OWN CLOTHES, IF YOU WANT...!!! That goes for all of the things I've posted, btw. :^)
So yep, there's my list, aha;;; Hope you find something you want to draw! And thanks so much again, Secret Santa!!! :^D ♥
