Hi thar! Long time no see. Since getting the Internet at my new place, I’ve been wondering what on Earth to do with my Tumblr; I’ve been so far using it as a place to reblog cool stuff, and that’s about it. I’d created two other Tumblogs on this account to use as WIP/sketch-dump blogs; one for my ‘proper’ portfolio (I may revive that at some point?), and one for my usual fare. But, really, there’s no need to have so many blogs, so I just deleted most of the stuff I’d posted (including a couple of blog posts you can find on my ‘proper’ Posterous blog, something which is also feeling a bit neglected), and more-or-less re-start this whole blog as something aiming for more of an artistic bent; posting my own miscellaneous works, links to cool art stuff, and so on.
So to start with, have a scribble I started last night, of Marisa Kirisame of Touhou fame wielding a rocket launcher that Nitori built (how she knew how to, I don’t know. She’s probably in cahoots with Yukarin over that one). Just a concept sketch, but it seems too cool not to take further. Though I could really do with working more on Nitori’s face, and Marisa’s is a little bit creepy; she clearly stole more than she bargained for after stealing the technique for Master Spark!
(Mostly, though, I just wanted an excuse to play with white gel pen on brown paper. )
A fantastic insight into how one artist practices drawing. Certainly the hand reference is particularly helpful, and the ‘Character Design’ link looks like it’ll be full of use.
Finally updated the sketchblog over at my (currently WIP) portfolio site. Just a speedpaint (of sorts!) for personal reference, but I liked it enough to post up.
Fingers crossed I’ll have a picture up per week, and then hopefully get started on my secret one-month project…
[[blog is now down as I never used it. I’ll probably be using this as an art dumping ground instead! Ta for patience. -1/1/11]]
