This is something i made at the end of July, i know I haven’t been posting for a while so i’m just putting it up here right now.. this one was inspired by the cat version of the character Hanekawa from the anime Bakemonogatari.

Flower girl (and new Wacom Bamboo)

A new drawing/painting I’ve made.. I have become much more aware of my weaknesses but also continue to improve.

The things that frustrate me are: anatomy (i should have this down by now), shading (this is a huge problem) and linework.. I would like to get rid of all those lines because it makes my stuff look cartoonish and I’d like to become a digital artist who mainly does semi realistic paintings.

Then there are things I am pretty satisfied with: my sense of color (I feel like my intuition is pretty good),  my increasing knowledge of drawing/editing software, my capability of making something and improving along the way without any real schooling on the particular subject and perhaps my passion to keep on doing what i like no matter what anyone says!

Now onto the technical aspect.. I used my brand new Wacom Bamboo!! Yes i have a new tablet! Woohooo! This is a enormous improvement over my old Wacom Sapphire (dating back to 2002). I’d also like to note that I use Pixelmator for my drawing/painting and often iPhoto for any last minute easy color editing.

Black/white Portrait

This is a drawing I made using this picture: http://nikxstock.deviantart.com/art/Something-else-III-144089695

Blackwhiteportrait

It’s a digital drawing I made in the editing program Pixelmator (which is for mac), I also have a colored version but I figured that it looks nicer in black and white.

I’ve been making quite a lot of digital art lately and a lot of sketches where many of them can be found on my deviantart: http://eev11.deviantart.com/gallery/

I haven’t been particularly proud of my skills lately because I feel that I’m not improving fast enough.. But like many people say: practice makes perfect! So I’ll just draw a lot more.
