Hey!

I'm sorry... I don't drop by here as much as I want to... So many things to do, I mostly come here to upload my new art - but there are so many wonderful works around to see :o
As you may have noticed, my drawing technique has improved quite a bit lately :) I've been watching a lot of nice tutorials on Youtube, that's why! I have discovered KNKL's show, and a few of these videos were really life-changing for me! (and I also watched ones from other artists) Lemme share them with you:

Coloring / lighting / tones:



Hands:



Body / foreshortening / body perspective (best tutorial I've seen about that, but afaik it's all about practice, not tutorials):



These are all I can think of! I'll keep you updated :)

Regarding personal art, there's a new mascott around, Nex!
New Avatar: Nex! by Merengil
He should be my avatar now, so expect to see him around for some time :)
My big Poppy artwork is... somehow progressing - yet it's so far from being finished...

I'm working as well on a Squigly piece that makes intensive use of perspective. However, I am far from mastering this so it's way too messy to show it here...
I also plan to work on "thanks for the fav" / "thanks for the follow" / "thanks for the llama" artworks ^_^ That'd be great!

Next, go play OneShot! Great game really! And it has a unique take on adventure games :) And I've been playing Skullgirls a lot lately too! It's a very nice and polished combo-based fighting game ^_^

That's all folks! See you next time! ^_^
  • Listening to: Solstice - OneShot OST. Also jazz.
  • Reading: a very boring book at work...
  • Watching: Zone 42 episodes on YouTube
  • Playing: OneShot, Skullgirls, Stories:The Path of Destinies
  • Eating: All teh veggies!
  • Drinking: Sparkling water ~

I'm not that active here anymore - it's more like my portfolio (although I'll probably make one on ArtStation when I am strong enough!). If you wanna interact more, catch me on Twitter!

  • I love to help people, and I can't help doing so, and will do my best to help whoever needs to (to the extent of what I can do of course)
  • I try my best to answer every comment :o (except those that don't require an answer)
  • I love making new friends ^_^ (so don't hesitate :D )
  • I try my best to be nice and understanding and caring :)
  • I upload drawings very slowly, because I want to give my very best into each one
  • I'm getting closer and closer to my very own artstyle!


Personal Quotes:
  • "A good engineer doesn't take 'no' for an answer." Licca Kusunoki, God Eaters 2
  • "Life is a State of Mind." (seen on a wall)
  • "Hence the skillful fighter puts himself into a position which makes defeat impossible, and does not miss the moment for defeating the enemy. Thus it is that in war the victorious strategist only seeks battle after the victory has been won, whereas he who is destined to defeat first fights and afterwards looks for victory." Sun Tzu, The Art of War

Favourite genre of music:
Touhou remixes, some classical jazz, electro, IDM, game music

Just found out that chibis are actually MUCH easier for me to draw than anything else I've ever drawn, at least regarding the lineart. That'll allow me to practice on all the lackluster parts I can't practice on, especially inking and coloring. Have a trash chibi now? gyazo.com/5d006981dfc4248fcd7f…
Here you go! All other WIPs are way too unfinished to be posted here...
