Process GIF for the previous painting!
(Lately when I do these the GIF looks fine until I upload it to tumblr, and then it gets kind of pixellated? It’s worse with some paintings than others. Anybody know why it’s doing that?)
absent-mindedly doodling and thinking about Loish’s excellent colour schemes and this came out
GIF thing I made years ago that never got uploaded. The painting is kinda bad but I still think the animation looks cool
speedpaint of a volcano lady enjoying a nice warm bath
when I say speedpaint I mean ‘this only took me 2 1/2 hours’ which I’m not sure really counts as any kind of speed :I
This artist, Emily, deserves A LOT more attention. Her work is beautiful! Go take a look.
Aw, thankyou! And hello new followers!
If you live in the UK and don’t know about the horrific things currently happening in Ferguson; read up on it. You need to know. The UK media have barely mentioned it and I know people are passing it off as an ‘America thing’: as if a similar incident didn’t happen here in 2011 (resulting in the London riots).
5 and 6 :) (and why?)
5. What’s your favourite thing to draw?
Glowing stuff! I love nice lighting but sometimes I’m too lazy to actually think it through, so something that glows is a really fast way to make a piece look cool haha
In terms of like, actual sketching, my favourite thing to draw is these terrifying humanoid things that my baby cousin drew pages and pages of when she was 5.
6. What’s your least favourite thing to draw?
Perspective. I’m so bad at it and so impatient when it comes to sketching. I just want to get to the painting stage ;___;
I went to a TCAF panel once where one guy went on a rant about how much he hated drawing, but loved a finished drawing, and similarly I could conceivably argue that I hate drawing everything. Sketching can be a real chore sometimes, especially when you know it’s gonna be so fun to colour. Lately I’ve just been skipping the sketch stage altogether and that makes everything a lot more relaxed.
sketchy character design for a comic thing I wanna draw
she lives in a cave and her only companion is the skeleton of a prehistoric cannibal
(if you live in the UK you might know what cave I’m talking about)
#what I wore
#most of this stuff is pretty cheap
I’ve been doing some little ‘what I wore’ warmup sketches lately as I’ve been trying to dress a bit nicer for confidence reasons and it’s been fun! Ofc I know clothes can’t make you happy but it does give you a nice little boost in the morning.
1: Dorothy Perkins dress, lace headband from Peacocks, white crochet flats from New Look, surprisingly cheap glasses from Specsavers because I Need To See
2: H&M top, Dorothy Perkins 3/4 lengths, same shoes, headband from a slightly questionable vintage stall, daisy earrings from Claire’s Accessories but you can’t really see them so it doesn’t matter. ‘Rosie the Riveter’ attitude: model’s own.
3: That One Top From New Look That Everyone Bought But I Still Love It, crappy threadbare strappy top underneath, New Look skinny jeans, boots from Dune (the shop, not the book or the David Lynch film).
