Art Fest 2005 - AKA Let's Force Ourselves to Draw!
Well, I missed updating anything yesterday, so I guess I'll post two "pictures" now. I haven't had a whole lot of time due to preparing for my brother's graduation party. So neither of these pictures are in anyway "finished" and are very rough. One is a rough sketch of Faolan (aka Bob) and Shayla and the other is a landscape I'm thinking of painting to use for the comic at some point. Both were sketched out with my 9 x 12 wacom tablet *hugs tablet*
Edit: I forgot to mention, that the posing for the faolan and shayla picture was based off of a Demon Diary
picture of Eclipse and Raenef. ( cut cut cutCollapse )
It is, in fact, YOUR COMPUTER THAT IS LYING. THIS WAS POSTED BEFORE MIDNIGHT, I SWEAR. Pay no attention to that man behind the curtain!
In any case, the real
reason that this is so late is because it started off, I swear, as just a plain old sketch, sometime this morning -
I MEAN YESTERDAY'S sketch with the girls with the 'kage hats had me all excited, because it meant that HUZZAH I had some form of jounin
outfits down, which meant, of course, OUTFITTING - but then, when I put it aside to skim over some sites, I saw character art. And ooooh, no, did things just head straight downhill from there.
Anyway, ( meet post-orig Jounin!Mai - or, well, her character art.Collapse )
In conclusion. Why do my characters have such huge hair? I mean, come on
Well, it's not finished, I'm working on coloring it right now, if I get that done, I'll add that as well. But for now here's my latest piece for the art fest.
I just felt like drawing ( an eyeCollapse )
Edit: Updated with the color version, it still needs work though.
Spent probably 10 minutes or less on this one. Sorry. I did many random sketches last night, but this is the one I did a few minutes ago and decided to post on here.( Yoh and ninjaCollapse )
Aaaah, I didn't know there was a community until this morning, so. I'll post both what I did yesterday, and what I did today, under THIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIS... ( CUT!!Collapse )
And here we have my first entry for the art fest...and I have to say it's crap. I've spent maybe a whole 20-30 min total on it. I don't really like it at all. But the whole point was that I wanted to try a new hair style for Shayla, one of my characters. Well *shrug* ( hereCollapse )

suggested I start a new community for Art Fest 2005!! If we keep this up after this week, we might have interesting contests, ect. I have a feeling I'm going to keep this up until the end of June probably and perhaps beyond? But, why do this?
#1. Frustration - Often new artists(like me) get frustrated when the art we draw isn't what we expect it to be. However, this keeps us drawing until we get something closer to where we want to be, thus, giving #2.
#2. Encouragement - By having many on here, we can give each other encouragement as we all work on the update-a-day schedule.
#3. Artist's Block - By making yourself to draw something, anything eventually you can break through artist's block. Also, seeing other's art might give you inspiration for your next day's art piece.( Rules for the Fest!Collapse )
Anyway, I wish you all of luck!
