I've been putting off answering and thanking you for the comments and faves on my latest drawing, because of some personal struggles the last week and a half.
I'm over that now, so I was going to do it now, but I'll be going on vacation tomorrow for two and a half weeks so forgive me if it takes some time to do it all.
See you in a while!
:D Finally the summer holidays started! :D
I didn't tell anyone, but I started going to school again last year 6 (!) years after my high school. I've tried to get into art school before that, but they would not accept me because I only copy from existing images in stead of working from my imagination or expressing my feelings in my art (which I don't want to call art anyway, it's a skill).
My second choice was IT. I know what you'll say, it's got nothing to do with drawing, but the common factor here is creativity. I'd like to continue college and try game design, but we'll see what happens. Anyway to keep things short, I finished my first
As a new start for next year I have changed my avatar from the animated gif that showed some of my drawings to a more static image that shows a part of just one. Guess which. :)

And since I won't be posting a new journal before 2012 I wish you all a very good New Years Eve! :D :party:
Also, thanks to everyone who has been faving/watching/commenting my work here. You are the best!
Hi, everybody! :wave:
This was actually a note I just wrote for someone who was asking me about the process of how I make my drawings. It was getting quite long (for a note) and I felt like I was answering questions which have been and probably will be posed again so I turned it into a Journal Entry.
I'll give you a couple of links which if you follow those things (I did), you will have a lot of the information I could tell you myself otherwise.
Go to YouTube and find this guy Jason Baalman's channel. It's called EclecticAsylumArt. He's awesome and he's got a bunch of tutorials up there on how to draw portraits which were a real help
I already noticed this yesterday, but was too occupied to do or say anything about it.
Not to mention that I got like 700 today and yesterday combined just because of this whole situation I am in. So, I am actually quite excited about it, but don't feel I deserve them yet.
So, YAY! :party:
I want to apologize to everyone I have dragged into this with me, but at the same time thank you all for the support. I appreciate it very much! I think we have brought her to her senses. I am not quite sure yet, but if there's any development on this matter, I'll let you know.
At last I want to thank everybody who has been watching and faving and comme
This summer someone posted a comment on my drawing of Lady Gaga saying they thought it was fake.
At that moment I was like, okay, that's actually a compliment. Then a month later someone else replied to that saying they agreed and that I had probably applied some Photoshop filter to make a picture look like a drawing. Seeing as this was a reply to someone else I didn't get a notice about this and I only happened to see it when I was scrolling through the comments a couple days ago.
This pissed me off, because this is a quite an insult, and in my rush I copy/pasted the comment back to one of their drawings to make them feel how it is. Of cou
Hey everybody, how are all of you?
I'm still in doubt about what to do with the white on the paper on the left of Claire's face. This is the frst time I don't want to copy my reference in its entirity so I am unsure about the outcome and if it won't screw up the drawing if I put something else on the left and blend the scenes into each other.
On top of that I can't seem to find fitting screencaps of Noah (Claíre's father) who I was thinking about putting into the drawing. Because of these reasons I'm again starting to think about just copying the boring background and be done with it, but that seems like the easy way out...
Okay, I uploaded my latest WIP of Claire Bennet yesterday and noticed some horizontal streaks across the paper and figured it was a scanning artifact. But I just saw them on the real paper as well. Also, people keep asking me how I get that 'old photo' texture in my drawings. By now I'm sure that's all fom the paper I'm using. So after I finish my drawing of Claire, I'm officially done with printer paper and on the hunt for some real drawing paper!
First of all I want to thank everyone who's kind enough to drop by, I really appreciate it!
Secondly, if I've given you a llama and you want to thank me for it, please don't do this by telling me. I'm not too keen on having an inbox full of 'Thank you for the llama' comments.
If you can't help yourself, give me one back instead! That's much more welcome, thank you :)
Okay, I wanted to make a poll about this, but then realized only Premium members can do that.
Anyway, I have been getting a few requests for submitting my drawing of Col. Hans Landa as a print and so I just did. The thing is, I've always found the scans of my drawings to be a little grainy. More than the real drawings and more than most other scanned drawings I find on this site. Now, especially since I submitted this as a print I've been wanting to update it (and maybe my other drawings as well) with a version with a smoothing filter applied digitally so that it actually looks more like the real drawing. What do you think? Is this cheating?
