hey all! sorry to hassle you with my neverending dA problems. i just uploaded a quick sketch for the pure purpose of testing whether my deviations appear in my followers’ message centers (there have been some problems with this as of late). if you follow me there, could you please comment on the image and let me know if you got it? thanks so much <3
process of this commissioned piece
instagrammed sketchbook photodump!
just finished a commission for a friend of mine that i actually went to fourth grade with when i lived jakarta (indonesia). small world! i was asked to draw loish-esque portraits of his college pals for an upcoming reuinion. here are the ones i thought turned out best. had a lot of fun drawing these
quick speedpaint as a break from some commissioned work, skintones + palette very leyendecker inspired. on deviantart
downton abbey sketchdump, used screencaps as ref. i love this show! just finished season 2, no spoilers please :)
when i was 15, i really wanted to get a huge tribal-ish tattoo all across my lower belly and my parents didn’t object at all. but on the day that i headed to the tattoo shop to get it done, i chickened out and got a small nose piercing instead. guess my parents knew that i always had pretty strong ideas about how i wanted to look, but didn’t always have the guts to actually make it happen :b by the time i did have the guts, i had changed my mind about how i wanted to look anyways.
so i wanted to do a series of drawings to show how i really looked vs. how i secretly wanted to look at different times in my life. part 1: age 16!
warm-ups. thanks deviantart stock photographers!
obligatory vanellope fanart! she was very cute and i love red+teal so. the style of the sugar rush characters really reminded me of the kind of stuff i used to draw all the time. i even had a character called candy cane laine who, in a more innocently dressed version, could easily be one of the racers :D
