Blue redone
What to do when your fingers are itching but your creative juices aren't flowing? Repaint time. 
This is a repaint/continuation one of my very first digital paintings - I believe it was my first digital painting from sketch to completion, not that there was much of a difference between the two when I started out. I overdid the blue lightning from the side a bit, which is why the neck seems so tiny. But apart from that, a massive improvement. I already did this once before, which you can see here: ciuva.deviantart.com/art/Befor… This time I once again started out from the first sketch, but I'd say it is more of an improvement this time. Luckily!

Winter portrait
Long time no see! Finally getting back into digital painting with another portrait. This is actually a remake of a picture I made back in 2006 or so, and I'm quite happy with it. Obviously still some issues with it, but I'm still trying to relearn stuff.
I've posted comparison pictures on my instagram (@ciuvaart)

Shanni portrait - sketch
This is the first coloured version of my latest image - I think I uploaded it to my instagram account (ciuvaart). I'm uploading this into my scraps because I'm rather fond of it, but it's of course very unfinished here.

Shanni portrait
This is the coloured version of this:
Shanni (sketch) by Ciuva 
It's a long time since I've painted anything digitally, so I ended up going back and forth with several different options. In the end many of the details are hidden anyway because it simply looked better with the original pencil sketch on top. I rather like the texture it gives... It lost some of the "feeling" it had in the initial stages, I think, but I still like it. I keep getting closer to how I want her to look, at least.

Shanni (sketch)
Lately I've been trying to spend more time drawing and painting. I also have a few books on drawing people (Draw People in 15 Minutes and Draw Faces in 15 Minutes by Jake Spicer) that I decided to finally read, and that sparked a bit more drawing. This is my MC, Shanni, and for a quick sketch I'm quite happy with it. I might decide to colour it in Photoshop or something, but we'll see. I keep drawing her, but then I also feel like I'm getting ever so slightly closer each time. This time around I feel a bit more confident in the proportions, particularly the shoulders - even if I felt they were very wide while drawing and now see that, well, it was kinda the opposite. But, well, there's always something more to learn.

Edit: Noticed the file was a bit too dark compared to the original drawing, so I tweaked it a little.

Just thought I'd write a journal entry to say that I have now opened up an instagram account for my art. Mostly I publish little sketches that I don't publish here (ballpoint pen sketches seem to be my main thing now), because they're too small or too unfinished. Would love for you to check it out! You can find it here: www.instagram.com/ciuvaart/ I had hoped to be able to use my usual username, but it was of course taken...

Also: Do you have any instagram account where you post your art? I would love to see it and follow you! I am a lot more active there than I am here, and while I do follow quite a few artists already, there is always more to see :)

I'm a linguist who currently works as a secretary and teacher, as well as studying part-time. I am an aspiring novelist, and when I'm not writing, painting, drawing or photographing I do Irish dancing, run three blogs, go running, play the guitar, sing, dabble in conlanging and conworlding, read or spend altogether too much time in coffee shops.
