redrawing an old oc

REDRAWCRINGE.png

Her name is Yuuki. Other than that, I still haven’t rewritten any backstory/info for her. Maybe someday lol

So… Hiii, been stuck on an art block lately after my last drawing so I thought “maybe I should fix one of my old characters” would help.

I’m still feeling the wall but to be able to draw something at least is better than nothing.

There’s like… four things I still need to draw on my list and I hope I can start on the weekend if not tomorrow.

 

mini artworks & WIPs

 

here’s what I’ve got so far, or at least, for this month.

I got a new (not brand new, but it’s still a gigantic step up from my old one) laptop thanks to my big sis, so I’ve done the first thing that came to my mind: draw.

Looks ok on laptop, but the color changes on mobile lol
vyrn_icon
felt like changing my twitter icon so i drew Vyrn.

And now for the remaining two:

WIP
my current “project” that won’t hopefully take a whole year to complete…maybe.

This particular WIP is my favorite so far, and the one that has most of my motivation invested on. I wanted to make a new banner for my social media accounts so I decided to draw the games that I’ve been recently playing: Fire Emblem Heroes (FEH), Closers, Granblue Fantasy (GBF), and Dragon Nest respectively.

except FEH is missing.

I haven’t decided who to draw on FEH yet, probably because I’m not too invested on the game since I only started playing this month. But we’ll see.

I’m particularly proud with the GBF one even though it’s not finished yet. I’ve been experimenting with colors–or at least trying to practice, and this piece is my guinea pig.

WIP2
how to color theory help

I don’t know how to determine whether this is “enough” or not, lol. I can’t even line the other two since I’m too focused on trying to finish this one first.

WIP3
why are they so many;;;;;

So, I visited my old home a few days ago and I found this old drawing from 2009. It’s kinda funny that I still remember some of their names hahaha. I wanted to redraw them so I’ve been doing it one character at a time.

Well, that’s pretty much it. It’s not a lot, but it’s something. LOL.

Will update again when I finished the wips, or make new ones hahaha

 

[WIP] Fish Mage

Water mage with a fish as her "familiar"
Water mage with a fish as her “familiar”

 

Yet another Work in Progress with Fish Mage this time.

I want to try drawing something with a bit more detail this time so I’m gonna add more stuff to her.

As always, GBF is a big influence, so how they do their character art has been in my mind while doing this. This is also a re-draw of this old character sketch:

Fishbowl
OC: Mage Character who has a fish as a familiar

 

Aside from the clothes, I also wanted to have a lighter/fun aura for her compared to the original so for now, I’m pretty satisfied with how the new one turned out. The anatomy killed me at first though because I started with the bust and I end up really liking it:

headshot fish mage
headshot fish mage

So it took several times for me to draw a body that doesn’t seem too awkward with this kind of head position;;;;

I can’t wait to clean this one up though! And then leave it forever because how to even color at this point hahahaha

Will post its update in a few days! Cheers~

I drew a Fan Art featuring Sen from Granblue Fantasy!

UPDATE: Sen is now fully colored! Check her out here!

 

WIP Fan Art: Sen
I’m almost done!! The only thing left is the coloring

What started two days ago as an intimidating request thankyougift for a friend turned out to be the most fun I had in a long time! Sen has never been my favorite character in Granblue (I like her = 8/10, but Yuel, Societte and Catherine took the best waifu/s title, sorry Sen fans!!!) but one thing I really love is her character design. She is a pure cat-girl trope with the giant claws resembling Dragon Nest’s Machina class.

Even though my love for her design is great, drawing it on my own is… hand-breaking, to say the least. She doesn’t have many references so drawing her claws/weapons was really challenging. And I have to accept that “If you base the result of your works on absolute perfection, you won’t produce any.”

I’m not sure if I should color this or just leave it as it is. I have  a love-hate relationship when it comes to coloring, and many times I end up scrapping the color layers just because “I don’t like it.”

Program-wise:  I’m really loving Medibang’s Text tool! I also discovered that they have sample tones/items for comic use. Originally, I wanted to use a dialogue bubble to put the “Nya!” in, but I can’t find any/don’t know how to search. Google has tons, I know, but there’s nothing there that I really want and I can’t draw the bubble with my unsteady hand lol

Anyway, tl;dr: I’m really proud of this one ahahhahaha

quick edit: changed the title of this post to be more specific haha!
