FIRST ATTEMPT AT DIGITAL PAINTING

Here’s my pretty meh first attempt at digital painting! I made it around 1-2 weeks ago. As you can see, it’s unfinished (I got too fed up with it to bother with the rest of the hair and the area from below the neck lol). I’m mostly posting this as reference, to log my progress if I indeed make progress. I was too lazy to bother with tutorials and reference images, so this truly reflects my very n00b understanding of how light and shadows and the whole painting thing works.

It’s not awful, but there is something about it that isn’t quite there. The image is kind of flat, which is probably a result of both not understanding when to use warm and cool tones and focusing too much on detail to make things dynamic. But it’s a decent enough attempt, and took around ~4-5 hours. I only worked with the two oil brushes that Clip Studio Pro comes with.

Although the painting is nothing special, I really love the draft! I’d love to give the character a story.

It’s tempting to stick to a comfortable comic style - the sheer amount of things I need to learn to become a decent painter is kind of depressing - but I will try to motivate myself to learn more. Some time in the near future: tutorials, drawing from real life, all that shizzle. Yay.

GGJ17 - THE FIRST NINE HOURS

(Thought I'd start posting gamedev stuff here. This will be my general creative blog from now on, not just restricted to fandom stuff. Just so you know, lol.)

Currently participating in Global Game Jam 2017. I teamed up with J, someone I vaguely know from uni, (vaguely as in coffee and VVVVVV randomly two weeks ago) and we’re making a Microwave Oven Simulator.

My original idea transformed from “cool sunglasses-dude makes a mess in the kitchen” to “1800s loving husband painstakingly attempts to cook dinner for his wife”.

I’m making retrostyle pixel art with a 4 bit color palette. Basically: obscenely horrible crap inspired very much by the oh-so-dreadful graphics in the Hugo House of Horrors series. (Shares first place in my Most Nostalgic Games from Childhood with Neopets and Super Bubble Pop.)

The script J wrote is hilarious and I’m still hyped after what, seven hours? That’s definitely a good sign.

Gonna finish up graphics tomorrow and maybe try my hand at animation. Expect a very creepy gif of a pale dude speaking sometime during the next 24 hours.

Sleep time now. (After mandatory 1-2 games of Osu!)

PS. The image is our title screen.

ART: DUMBLEDORE'S DRAG RACE - DUMBLEDORE

I'm starting a new series featuring HP characters in drag! I plan to eventually do a full-fledged Dumbledore's Drag Race webcomic, but for now I will stick with drawing the contestants.

Here's the host Dumbledore herself!



I'm really happy with the direction in which my art has been developing. I feel like I master Clip Studio and my graphics tablet well enough now to start developing my own style.

Comments are much appreciated.
