hellfire153's Profile Picture

:iconnorequests: :icontradesclosed2: :iconcommissionsopen:

Student studying in Singapore, currently 18

Been doing art for about 5 years now, although for most of it it was on-and-off. Only really started taking art seriously in the past year.
I primarily work in digital these days, and it's been very fun!
My tools are: CLIP Studio Paint, UGEE 2150 (display tablet at home), Gaomon M106K (normal tablet, for when I'm outside)

Social Media: (I'm hellfire153 on all)

  • I am ok with anybody using my works for reference / studies
    In fact, do mention me if you upload it!
  • No need to thank me for favourites, llamas, etc. You're welcome!

  • I won't respond to profile comments!

    though I do read and appreciate all your comments
  • Note me if you'd like to talk for any reason.



I kinda have no idea what to draw now, and last time I sorta solved it by entering a random contest. Does anybody know of any interesting contests I could join?
My deviantart account is 6 months old now! These past 6 months have been great!

My art has changed so much since my Hyanna-natsu inspired days, now pursuing semi-realism instead of the bright and colourful soft shading style her style does. I really only switched because I hated cleaning up lineart, but I've never really looked back. There's not enough people doing semi-realism anyway!

The weekly review series was a good idea, it's nice looking back on my activity week to week, what I'm trying to improve on, etc.

I've also joined a discord server with pretty cool members. We talk about stupid stuff sometimes. It's open to everyone, here's the invite link:
Discord's the fastest way to reach me!

What does the next 6 months have in store for me? Well, I don't really know. My plan is to just keep practicing!
I'm liked making the old art video, and I want to make more voiceover videos! My next speedart video will be narrated!
Weekly reviews are where every Sunday, I reflect on all the art-related stuff I did on this week.

Let's get started!

Art piece of the Week

[Fanart] Ruby Rose by hellfire153 
Ruby Rose!
This was just a practice piece, but it got a surprising amount of attention. It's the first piece of mine that got over 1000 favourites (it's at 1554 favs now, that's insane)
This piece has rim lighting, something that I don't remember ever doing actually. I also paid extra attention to values

A few tips for values:
1. Each element should have its own local value (base colour, basically)
2. Not too many lights in darks, not too many darks in lights. This prevents too much contrast, and will make it so that the drawing works even when really small
3. But don't be afraid to have very contrasting elements. The rim lighting and the black mark above stand out a lot

There's some problems with this piece, the biggest being the hands and the arms. Mirroring the drawing makes this pretty obvious

I was actually planning on doing more drawings, but I got some artists' block, and I have absolutely no idea on what to draw. Ah well

Studies / Practice

Nothing special this week again. 

Failed / Gave up

Like I said I had some artists' block this week, and so I fumbled around for a bit.

Attempt at drawing Ayana Pro's (a discord bot) avatar

Akko and Diana from Little Witch Academia. I stopped as I did not like how Akko's face was going, and couldn't really fix it

Palutena from Kid Icarus. Again I feel I can do better with the face. I might finish this next week


All art done for me this week! (Tell me if I missed yours!)
None this week

Plans for next week

So like I said, I'm facing a little art block. I feel that it gets worse as time goes on as failed attempts make me more frustrated, leading to me rushing and not really thinking when I'm drawing. My main plan now is to just relax and take it slow. I'll probably do more practice and study pieces too.

That's all for this week, until next time!
