I was going to make a full post with words and shit, but I’m pretty sure you’re all in the process of scrolling down to Kiririn’s drawings right now. So details behind the cut.
But they didn’t exactly go to the right either.
Actually it’s that damned pokemans game.
Since my productivity is extremely slow, I thought I could make a go at a slow WIP narrative.
I’m not sure what a formally trained artist will tell you is supposed to be happening in this step. I’ll usually have a basic concept in my head of want I want at this point, so I’ll establish a perspective and the location of something important (usually the head of the focal character). Then it’s like cloudwatching. I’ll try to define some more shapes and forms, but that goes out the window quickly. Just throwing down lines and ideas as fast as possible.
The actually technique is none. I grab the pencil tool in pink and draw a shape. If it does not look right or something better comes to mind, I’ll throw the new shape on top of it. Erasing rarely happens on this step. Somewhere along the way it’ll either become too much of a mess and I’ll erase large portions to start over, or some lines look promising. I’ll pick the lines I think look good with a second color (usually maroon or brown, because those were default colors in pchat and I’m used to it now). Cloudwatching.
A lot of deviations from the initial concept I had in my head happen at this step. I’m told it gets better with time, but a person’s brain doesn’t visualize a complete coherent composition. At least /my/ brain doesn’t function that well. There’ll probably be a general mood and scene, and details to be included, but some parts linking the details with the overall composition will be missing. Perspectives won’t make sense, details will overlap, or things look like shit. And so this step allows me to be more organic and allow the idea to develop visually instead of going nowhere in my head. Sometimes it works out, sometimes it doesn’t. Don’t be afraid to throw it away and start over; minimal time is invested at this point and you don’t want to continue chasing a fundamentally flawed idea.
Step two tomorrow? More cloudwatching.
Site was down, but i wanted to post this anyways.
So i saw my epic songtress idoru moeoriga-sama. I love her to death but she looks like one of the scary teachers i had from school. Fight or Flight reaction kept kicking in. Hajime is always happy though.
Pantsu led us into the depths of moeland (Asians everywhere) Everyone was giving his kawaii thigh highs knowing glances. She must frequent there often ‘^’
The stall of Takoyaki.
Obligatory food post. (From top left: Giant Takoyaki, Hotpot noodles, spicy noodles, red bean hedgehog! and shaved ice)
I drew, too bad it was at the con after Arev (random commissions) , but i figured since i dont draw animu ever i’d upload them anyways, who knows when the next time will be *n*
Everyone should come see us at the next con we congregate at :c and give us free food. Only if its delicious.
I’m pretty sure some of you already saw this coming, but I’m leaving this blog group.
No hard feelings or anything, but my time has already passed.
I’m not disappearing forever; I’ll still be updating my own blog. For those that still have my contacts, you know where to talk to me.
>Missed package. Because at work, like a normal human trying to hide his secret faggotry
>Go to post office with missed package slip
>Hand over ID and slip to old lady at the counter
>Grabs package from back room
>Looks at package
>Looks at ID
>Looks at me
>Looks back at package
>She chuckles a little
>”Your name doesn’t match”
“uhhh… yea, I think my friend’s are just playing with me.”
it was low pressure diving.
Doom, Rice, and other dudes at dischan just released Dysfunctional Systems
I think it’s a game about thigh highs and tights with hoodies; or something of that sort. Looks promising.
Look above. I should not have to tell you what this means. Do you remember last time? Well, if you don’t… please put down your bagel bites, wipe off your greasy hand on your cheetos covered penis, and click that link. And then, with your newly greased rod of shame, jerk off a quick one. Let the gravity of the situation set in. Unlike your sexual history, these things have been getting better each time.
I DON’T EVEN KNOW WHO THE FUCK THESE PEOPLE ARE. but don’t they sound awesome? It’s like they’ve all got face paint, leather pants, and swing 50 pound war axes with their 200 kilogram penis. Yea. They can even combine metrics with imperial. Their potency is internationally undeniable. If it were not for North Korea, they would probably reach through the internet and punch Ghengis Khan in the face. Why? Because NOBODY IS ALLOWED MORE BITCHES.
