Landscape painting! #mountains #painting #paynesgray
I am so bad at updating, but here’s a thing I did.
Humans can be so unwittingly destructive, often as much to themselves as to others.
PaintTool Sai + Photoshop
A working tattoo design I’m making for myself. (Thinking of getting it as a thigh tattoo!!)
Волка ноги кормят is a Russian proverb meaning “The wolf is kept fed by its feet.” It’s pretty open for interpretation but in my case I took it as “Keep moving if you want to succeed. The wolf that stands around and waits for prey to come to him is the wolf that starves.” As an artist who also deals with anxiety, it’s super easy to get caught up in myself so it’s pretty encouraging haha. Oak is symbolic of strength and aspen symbolizes overcoming of difficulty.
Prismacolor Marker + White Gel Pen. If I see someone stealing this tattoo for themselves so help me god I will come after you. I designed this by myself for myself; please be cool y’all. That said, critique is welcome!
Thanks to the beautiful and smart Nikky for helping me double check the translation. <3
Happy Halloween everyone :) here’s a quick speed paint of a werewolf babe with a cigarette!
I want to get back into doing studio ghibs art.
(Cappa my dear, I have not forgotten you)
Here’s my lil warmup San; I wanted to reimagine her costume as something a little more historically accurate so more on that later. I’m gonna go do that thing where you redraw a screen cap in your style now. Except that I’m probably gonna do like 2998439813781 of those.
Finally, the Beauty and the Beast illustration I promised you guys!
I would definitely recommend right clicking this one and opening the image in another tab so you can zoom in! It’s worth it, I promise :) Or just click here for the full, hi res zoom!
Their clothing is based on different pieces ranging in the 16th and 17th centuries. I’m new at this whole historical costuming thing but I hope I did well!
This is Mina, one of the main characters for my upcoming comic. I need help picking a color palette for her!! She’s twelve and living in a semi-polar area with a climate similar to that of Alaska. I can’t shake the feeling that she should be in blues and greens but I’m worried that some of these are too dark. I just don’t know! I guess the only one I’m pretty sure I don’t like is number 5; that one’s too Assassin’s Creed-y but I just wanted to see her in light colors.
If you click on them, each one is numbered. Help me out :D Which one would you like to see her in?
Tonight’s piece is something I did for my Student Show. It was pretty cathartic :)
Anyone who’s followed my personal blog for long knows that I’ve been dealing with anxiety for a few years now. A lot of my extended family has it and I’m no different. This is supposed to describe what my anxiety feels like when I’ve hit a low—I try so hard to keep composed but it feels like I’m combusting from the inside out.
Some work in progress shots of my latest illustration. This time it’s Beauty and the Beast re-imagined in Russia! I’m having a lot of fun with this but man is it stressful. Hopefully I’ll have the full piece up soon! :)
Sorry I haven’t posted in so long! My new place doesn’t have internet and my tablet just broke down :( things are rough over here!
Here’s a quick study I did at school on a cintiq though! I’ve never used one before so that was kinda fun. I’m experimenting with like a painterly but also lined look. I dunno.
