Had my first day off on Saturday, after 2 weeks of working 12-15 hrs a day. IT FELT GOOD. (the day off haha)
I’m so exhausted but at the same time I’m learning so so much while working on these projects. Pushing my boundaries like never before probably. And most of the time I am so far past my comfort zone I can’t even see it on the horizon lol but I can literally feel the improvement day by day and that’s like the best feeling ever. It gets me so excited that I just wanna draw more and ‘try’ my new skills or something. I don’t think I’ve ever even felt that but there you go. Everyday something new haha
I guess my art is in the ‘pink on a yellow background’ phase now ☀️🐤
Anyway, I finally managed to create something fully coloured on my iPad, from start to finish! yay!
I’m really starting to enjoy drawing in Procreate tho. In a way it’s not super comfortable because of some small technical restrictions, like the lack of clipping layers and colour history. Or having to open the colour palette every time I need to change colours.
But on the other hand it feels really liberating. Like I don’t feel that strong urge to make everything perfect, maybe exactly because of these issues. I don’t want to go through all the trouble sometimes and I accept that things will just be messier because I’m lazy. I love that <3 It’s amazing how different your art can be if you just switch tools. It completely changes the way you approach things.
I shared some WIP videos of this drawing in my Instagram stories, so if you’re interested in seeing more of these things feel free to follow me there:)
It’s been a while since I’ve done any studies, so I thought it was about time now.
Since Tumblr is not very interactive, here is a little Instagram Challenge for you:)
Here is a link to the ref pack that I used to create these expressions. I invite you all to pick at least 4 and do studies of them. Whether you draw the actual girl on the picture with realistic proportions and all, or you do it like me – putting the expressions on a character, it doesn’t matter. Just do at least 4 studies, post them on Instagram and tag me. I would love to see your take on this exercise and even give some feedback if anyone needs it 🙂
hey guys! After my last (not so positive) post I got a bunch of kind messages from all of you, and I wanted to thank you for being so supportive and sweet. <3
Your encouraging words really made me let go of these negative thoughts at least for a little while, and as a result I actually felt really inspired and I spent my Sunday evening in bed, painting this. Honestly, it was so much fun! It’s a colour study of a random photo I found on Pinterest.
As a ‘thank you’ I decided to record the process, so I’ll be sharing the video soon:) I hope you’ll find it somewhat interesting or useful.
