A pretty old picture. Boring quick old character studies. Yeah aion is an awesome game despite how bad it is.
Just needed to post something vaguely more interesting than a journal entry (...not much more, unfortunately)
After about half a year, I'm back from hiatus. Its been a while. Also my gallery makes me want to curl up and die when I look at it.
Sorry for the extremely long absence. It wasnt a good time for me artistically. To be honest art has never really been a pleasant experience for me. My expectations were too high, my hand too impatient, my abilities too low. It got to a point where every time I drew I'd just get furious. I was gone cause I gave up.
My half-year absence doesnt really hold anything of value to show but I'm trying to warm back up again. Everybody's been working hard while I've reduced art to a boredom-reliever.
yeah. gonna get back on track. for some reason I feel like Im fresh out of rehab or something.
EDIT: Oh right, if you sent me a kind comment or message Im sorry if my absence made me look like I was ignoring you! I will try to reply to as many as I can. Thank you all always for the support.
EDIT2: Sorry for the repost but decided to tweak the red for humanity's sake and added a border to solidify it. Tell me if it still BURNS haha and Ill tone it down again
while cleaning out my room I found some old artwork and character studies from about a year ago. I found one design I still kinda liked, so I scanned it in and painted over it. It was originally an “original design” for my archbishop on ragnarok online. I liked the idea of priests in heavy armor smiting people with their staffs. I also turned his orc hero helm into a dead bird, I guess.
Now that I look at it its sort of a generic fantasy crusader but…whatever lol.
dark as in "add more contrast man I cant see what the hell this picture is of"
its X. he looks kind of younger though imo, or maybe its just the angsty sulk on his face?
I drew this a while ago, really not one of my best, but yea. The original sketch was literally from a year and a half ago, I painted over it. It was mostly an attempt to loosen up which kind of failed (the actual file name is FUCKTHISSHIT.jpg) but ultimately I did have SOME fun drawing it....
scrapping this later probably. after all this time posting work still makes me nervous...
Maybe it should be Little Brothers, because technically it has two heads. One has the jaws on the belly and the other is the creepy thing with the long neck. They work together like an anglerfish and its light (cliche, I know).
But long-neck lil bro always eats the prey the moment he lures it, instead of guiding it to the belly-jaws lil bro to eat. Belly-jaws gets mad, but thats ok, since they share the same stomach and what not....
also, it swims in the deep but can also somewhat fly like a flying fish. E.g quick, long leaps above-water to chase things. As you can imagine, it likes to crush ships and eat everyone on board.
