Weekend Sketches

Sketches from this weekend.

I was away from home but took a my sketchbook with me and managed to be extremely self indulgent when it came to drawing!

It was really nice to be able to give a bit of love to my own characters for once – I’ve actually been falling in love with my own art style recently; because I feel like I have been putting a lot of hard work into drawing lately and pushing my drawing in the direction I’d like to take it.

I know what I need to work on as well, which is always something worth knowing.

It feel really good to finally feel settled in what I am doing when it comes to artwork.

So here we have;

  • Amnion Bust – Amnion is a character I adopted aaaaaages ago from Boltbunny on Furaffinity. I don’t even have the original images of him anymore (sadface) and I’ve only recently remembered about him. He was a lot of fun to draw
  • Demitri – I’ve been thinking up an Alternative Universe for some of my characters which is set in the mental hospital PillsBrooke Hospital and all the characters there are seen through the eyes of Devon (Who is pictured next) and Demitri is the GP there, but seeing as Devon hates him, she sees him more of a vintage Dr/Sawbones.
  • Devon – All Glamfur’d and everything. I’ll write another post in a little bit about Glamfur~
  • I Zombie – I don’t remember when I last drew I Zombie; probably last time I saw Circus of Horrors. I was wondering how I could get him into the same AU mentioned above, what I could do to change him and honestly, the answer is nothing!! Story wise, I think he’s Devons psychologist and cause she thinks he is amazing, she sees him the way he has always been to me.
  • Jenn – Here she is with her old Jenntula look. Honestly, I just wanted to draw her hair that way again.

Hello everyone

So, here we go, the start of sharing my anthro artwork with the ‘wider world’ as mentioned/promised in my previous post.

Also, a quick shout out to the person who commented on that post. Your worlds meant a lot to me and I’ve been thinking about them a lot. Sorry I can’t thank you in person, because I have no idea who you are from the name that was left! It’s got me scratching my head – but thank you regardless.

So, on with the pictures.

I’ve been doing a few ‘Redraws’ lately – where I take one of my older pictures and draw them again; using the same character – there have been some modifications to designs where some of the characters have changed over the years though.

They have been a lot of fun to do; because I was once told ‘You’ll never improve as an artist if all you do is copy other people.’ At the time I took the words to heart, because I was rather new on the anthro art scene and the person who told me was really popular at the time; I don’t think they understood the word influence! All I have really done with my anthro art since I started was copy poses from magazines and use “fashion” blogs/boards/pictures as inspiration for outfits.

So, here we are~

 

Hopefully, you can tell the original from the redraw!!

Just reposting the “First Date” pictures on here with their report card~

Feb 13th

numbsoul-tradeI’m mostly writing this post so I can avoid writing the next one in my writing challenge – which I started this morning and had a bit of an angst fit over.

But at least I am actually updating with something and getting to share a bit more of my art as well.

This is my half of an art trade with Numbsoul over on deviantart, their character Mellia Apricot.

I don’t have much else to share today, other than I closed down my Weasyl accounts today. Just left a journal pointing to my blog. So, if you see this post and are from there. Hello and my thanks for coming~

I know that face… sorta.

I wasn’t planning on updating the blog today, but the husband took the son for a walk out skaejre-new-sketchso I could do some drawing and this lovely lady turned up. I’ve not visited her in a long time. For those of you that don’t recognise her it’s Skaejre. She was once going to be part of this whole story that I had planned out, but couldn’t ever figure out how to start.

I’ve toyed with the idea of starting the story several times and it’s always when I have a dip in my thoughts that she seems to come crawling.

When I figure out that I am not really a good enough writer to write an entire novel, I flirt with the idea of making one of those ‘Art behind the film’ books and filling it with concept art and ideas and that sort of thing, but I always come to the conclusion that I’m not good enough for that, either – I’ve even thought of doing a Kickstarter/Crowd fund to help keep the idea afloat, but nothing really seems to stick. (That and the fact you have to make a video for a kickstarter put me off the idea completely)

Maybe it’s a sign that I should find a way to expand on this idea again and see what I can come up with to actually do?
I do still cherish this project even if it has been put on hold for the longest time now.
Still, it was lovely to see Skaejre again and I’d love to see some of her companions again as well.
