Basically it's been a while since I've done a streak and with work being so hectic I've had less and less time to make finished paintings regularly. I've been mostly doing small drawings everyday but I want to make more detailed/finished looking art...So I thought, I should try doing a finished painting everyday during April to try to kick myself outta my laziness and paint awesome stuff =w=
Felt like drawing my OC from last year...haven't drawn her since then.
She can be seen here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K7G17wWrHoQ
She has a thing for sweet stuff hehe, so I thought I'd draw her nomming on a doughnut...I might change it to something else later but for now it's a doughnuttttt 🍩
Lol this is turning into a daily sketch challenge 😅
But anyways, still got tonnes of work...so lagging behind.
I wanted to go for something simple and quick with this one..something cute but with a slight edge to it. I love short hair but recently I've been doing a lot of long haired characters, so I thought it'd be fun to do this. And piercings always look fun =w=
[EDIT: a few days later] I has finally finished zis. Well let's just say I was rushing like mad to get it done in 5 hours...yeah. I'm just glad it's done, I wish I was A BETTER ARTIST so I could paint it like 10x better.....but OH WELL i still suck. Anyways, still I enjoyed doing the lineart and I liked painting the melon soda thingy....also the phone (so random lol). I really need to PAINT SIMPLE STUFF ......like things that can be done in 2 hours max, so I can catch up but I keep painting detailed stuff so that doesn't help. For this I experimented with a very old brush of mine, saved a lot of time. But probably would've been faster to do this in Clip Studio Paint haha. Whatevsssss (〃⌒∇⌒)
Yep, another wip for today too. Just when I thought I'd caught up. But I think I should focus on getting ample sleep everyday so my routine doesn't get any more messed up than it already is XDD But I have a good feeling about this painting. Doodled it while listening to O Sole Mio by SF9. Honestly felt like painting something directly inspired by the world in the MV but I know it'd take me way too long to figure something like that out, so I'll have to try it after Intense Art April is done haha 😅
[edit: a few hours later] So just refined some of the areas, added the rain and some small finishing touches. With this I'm actually kinda caught up...whooo. I'm gonna have to stick to extremely simple stuff for the next couple of days because work has totally piled up while I've been a bit sick this past week =__=;;;
But I haven't drawn anything with a rainy theme in AGES...and there was a time when I'd draw a bajillion rainy day artworks a year....interesting to see how my drawing habits have changed heh. It was raining today so I thought something like this would be nice.
THIS IS ALMOST DONE lol....so close but it's super late and I really need some sleep. So posting it as it is now XD
[edit many many hours later ewe] OKAY so I went for a totally different artwork..wasn't too happy with the previous sketch. But THIS...wow it was a lot of fun to paint. All the yummy details were really fun to do. And now I feel like having one of these.........too bad I'm broke AF XD
I'm still behind by a day sigh........
Let's hope this super simple artwork helps me catch up XD
[Edit much much later the next day] Yuss after much confusion I finally manged to finish this...not that it was difficult but there were so many ways in which this could've been painted...got a bit overwhelmed for a bit. But once I just focused on the painting instead of worrying about all the variables, it was a very relaxing and smooth process overall. Gotta love cherry blossoms A
Cherry Blossoms are blooming everywhere so I can't help but want to draw them all day =w=
[Edit: a billion hours later the next day] It's done~ I'm pretty happy with how it turned out. Wanted something soft and pastel. I'd have loved to make it look all nice and painterly and stuff but I had to go for a cell shaded look since I was trying to finish it quick. But it turned out pretty interesting looking and I had fun playing with textures and effects...it's been a while since I did that so I really enjoyed that part a lot.
Lol since I'm so behind making a simple one for today. But I'm too tired so here's a sketch for now. Will have to finish it up later on tomorrow -_-
[edit much later during the day ORZ] IT IS DONE
Lol I'm barely scraping through this challenge and I keep painting INCREASINGLY complex stuff like WHY MOONY WHY CAN'T YOU CHILL FOR A CHANGE and learn to paint things simply and quickly OTL
BUUUUT I really had a lot of fun painting this, and since I love fantasy I'm glad I painted something on a theme I really personally enjoy a lot. Her hair was rather fun to paint (although it gave me a lot of pain XD) Felt like an eternity but it only took 6 hours...I'm surprised??!?!
aah another WIP today too, I'm struggling to get these done on time loll..well I'll have to paint something much simpler for day 04 to be able to catch up >_<;;;
