Coloured version of this for Pete. As stated on my deviantART, I found myself in a rush to finish it due to procrastination (Jeremy Kyle was on, okay?) And wound up missing out highlights on her hair and a few other minor details… Like the background. Hopefully it stills makes an exceptional late birthday gift because I can’t return it.
Thanks again to my friend Tom for doing this amazing piece. The colouring came out really well :D. Now check out the rest of his work. It’s so awesome, if it was food it would be on par with something bacon based.

My OC “Snow Theora”

A few of my friends and supporters over on deviantART mentioned how my art wasn’t really evolving because I still hadn’t moved out of drawing “basic reference poses”. Thus the fruit of my last few weeks is done and I must say I’m generally happy with the result.

Granted the legs may be a little short, the feet and hands could have been done better, as could the shading but I am generally pleased with it. I should add the ice beam didn’t turn out half as planned which was annoying but hey ho; try again next time.

Because I am still learning, I find generating wips and submitting them to DA is a great way to get flaws and mistakes pointed out to me. It does mean a picture can take a while and my gallery is swamped with them but the process ahs been valuable to me and I have met some great artists who are more than willing to help me (as well as a few douchebags who could do with a lesson in tact or two).


More information can be found on this pic’s entry into my DA gallery.

Finally, after what feels like forever, I have finished a picture revival of an old OC of mine.

I do feel this is one of my best pictures, especially in terms of shading, proportion and how the stage left foot came out. The stage right foot on the other hand… Not so much, but it gives me something to aim at improving next time.

Theora ‘Snow’ Diamond - Wip/Beta

Work in progress version of an image I am working on. A number of people have pointed out how the arms are of a same length despite the shoulder being slanted and the body being too long. However I am pleased with how the face and hair have come out so far.

Hope to have the finished version done soon.

Minx Hamusta

—————

Many moons ago when dinosaurs roamed the earth and all machinery was powered by steam, I mentioned I had passed on my old OC, Minx the Kung-Fu Hamster/Minx Hamusta to a former contact of mine in the spriting community, :devAkumaTH:. I also stated I would draw a picture of him as a final send off (though later came up with the idea of doing Minx vs Akuma; three guesses how well that’s gone).

Well despite the on-again-off-again artist block I have constantly suffered with I have succeeded in at least starting this picture. And thus, like with everything else I have drawn in 2012, it gets added to my gallery with the “Rough Sketch; please give me helpful critic so I can improve upon it when the moon turns blue and I actually carry on working with it” stamp I have often used.

Honestly, I’m happy with how this has come out. The anatomy, which I often struggle with is generally good and I like how his clothes have been done. Sure his neck may be too long, he has no hair, his face could do with work and his hands are too small and have no detail, but I am generally happy with what I have done so far and hope, unlike my other pieces, I can actually move forward with this one.

Plus, it felt good to go back to Minx. I’ve been meaning to revise his sprites a little more to help Akuma (even though it breaks a small vow I made with myself) but honestly, the  character vanished from the line light in my work as time went on, so it was good to put the spotlight back on him.
