Here is the process from the painting I attempted yesterday. It’s been a year since I’ve painted with physical paints (acrylics). For going that long without painting, I’m not too disappointed, but I have a lot of practicing ahead of me before I’m satisfied. I’ll post the final photo after this.
I haven’t really been on very much in the past few weeks, so I thought a mini update was in order. I recently bought some authentic manga tools!!! I bought a Tachikawa pen nib holder, Zebra G Pen Nibs, Kuretake Manga Ink, White Deleter Manga Ink, a blue lead pencil, and blue lead. Everything is from Japan and and in Japanese! It makes me feel so pro holding them lol. They were kind of expensive (all of this was about $40) but it’s going to be so much fun!
I’ve been working on a Bleach doujinshi that my younger sister has been begging me for. Let’s just say I’ve successfully turned a shonen manga into a shojo manga. These are 35 pages that have been sketched. I’ve inked and toned 14 of them thus far. It’s so time consuming, but excellent practice. Screen tones have been difficult for me to figure out, but it’s really making me study the manga I read more <3
WIP I had a terrible night, but at least this came out of it. I changed the background concept 3 times, and decided to keep this one since I put the most work into it. I’ll color it after I get some sleep. Hoping everyone has a better day.
a small snip from a work in progress like all the 9836986 drawings on my comp right now
I realized I never post WIPs because my sketching is so messy, but this one looks pretty clean so I thought I would share it. This is a pic I’m working on for my sister’s birthday :D
WIP Ugh, I hate how much I’m struggling with painting simple backgrounds >.> I’ve redone it 3 times now. Oh well, I’m going to take a nap and work on it later. There is still quite a bit of work to do on it.
Oh my gosh! I am so nervous to give this to her. I don’t know what I think of it. Ahhh be an adult! Just hand it to her and…..and….run away *blushes*
Final piece of the picture.
The last set of pics for my mother’s birthday gift.
By the way guys, I hate twilight…but it’s my mother’s obsession. So i’m attempting a twilight painting for her for her birthday. I haven’t painted traditionally in a couple years… wish me luck!
WIP Why tumblr? Why you not work for me? I had to wait almost an hour just to post this… Anyway, I’m sick of this pic…i’ve been working on it off and on for like 4 days…and I don’t know where sebastian’s thighs are hurr hurr. Having anatomy problems….need sleep….don’t you hate it when you’re tired and everything just looks like crap?
