A flat coloured picture of Heretic Deb, from Abaddon and Teal.
And Abaddon himself, looking pretty pissed off about something or other.
These came as art prompt over on Tumblr, which has been pretty good for that sort of thing – but I am thinking of putting some prompts here instead. I just don’t feel that WordPress is as ‘interactive’ for that sort of thing, but no harm in trying!
This is what I’ve been using for the prompt – so if you have any characters you’d like to see my draw in any of these expressions please let me know? If they are a character of yours (or a canon character I don’t know) then please give me a link to a reference picture.
It’s only been a few weeks since I drew anything like this and I already feel well out of practise.
But here we are, some fan art for Inquisitor Jenn and Heretic Deb who are characters over on Abaddon and Teal
I know it’s not my best work, but it felt nice to draw something Hobby related again after the few Primarchs I drew – which I will resume when I am feeling less ‘out of practise’
There is another thought to add to this post though and I hate to drag down a gift-art post, but it’s sorta, maybe relevant?
Since picking things back up here and getting back into the hobby full swing, I’ve honestly questioned myself. For a while I wanted to be seen as a credible and ‘real’ artist. But, what does that even mean? Am I less of an artist because I draw characters in the way that I do? I think it speaks volumes the amount of time I’ve been drawing characters; it’s something that I always return to and yet, I’ve always held this overwhelming sense of shame with it – maybe because I know there are a lot better people out there at it than I am. But, does that matter? Clearly, this is where my soul keeps returning.
Sure, I like painting and dabbling in other things, but try as I might to deny myself the chance to draw characters, I return to it. Always. There has to be something in that?
Then there is that ‘elephant in the room’ does everything have to come down to money?
If I am happy drawing characters, why am I trying to replace it with something else?
