[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 >_<;;;
[edit a few hours later] It is finished!! Wooo honestly I'm fairly happy with how this turned out...especially the ambiance. It's not perfect by any means, but hey it was done in less than a day and it's something detailed and not super half assed for a change, and I had a lot of fun painting this (excluding the power cuts). I including a crop because DETAILS~ LOOK AT THEM, they will do you good >3>
sigh the power keeps going out so I haven't been able to fully complete it yet, but I'll finish it up later on after the electricity stabilises somewhat and I don't risk corrupting this whole artwork =__=;;;
Yuss first day done! Okay I inked and coloured this in under 4 hours loool. Honestly I'm pretty surprised at how decent it turned out...usually it takes ages for me to finish coloured lined stuff with a painterly style. But the amazing part about this kind of challenge is that is pushes you to think of efficient ways to get things done. For example, for her hair I separated the sections into a few different layers which made it a lot easier to shade without me having to zoom in and do a tonne of clean-ups on overlapping areas. ANYWAYS i looooove mint choco ice cream and I still remember this awesome mint choco gelato I had in Singapore years ago. I still crave it * A * I actually sketched this on my tab a few days ago but I thought it'd be a good way to start this challenge.

[Edit 16/11/15: FINALLY finished it!! I'm only like two weeks late xDD But the past couple of weeks have been a bit slow for me since i didn't have internet and caught a cold as well. Still glad I finished this one up. Only one more to finish now :D I had a lot of fun painting the steak...I WAAANT some right nao e__e ]
is it weird I'm placeholdin so much? XD Got an awful migraine so being tough to catch up..but no worries, I'm gonna catch up to teh fanarts sooooooooon.
5/11/15: Yoshh!! Finally finished this xD Yeah this took longer than I wanted it to...due to many interruptions while painting it.I mean the painting itself didn't take long, but it dragged on for longer than I wanted. Anyways, still I'm glad I painted this. I really like Mirai's design a lot and it was fun painting this. Also kinda happy with how it turned out. ONLY TWO MORE DRAWINGS TO GO OMGGG YAAAY
[Edit: 3/11/2015] Yosh it's Kiki today! I wanted to play around with a simple style again, and it was a bit tricky handling it but I think I'm slowly getting the hang of it. Made her a bit more "stylish" xD Wanted to see how it'd look on her an all hehe.
Finished ze Halloween day fanart! But right now just too tired and don't want to do a crappy job of the other two fanarts..so will finish it after I get some sleep
This took a while, but I'm so glad I finally finished. I was feelin kinda down all day so it was tough to work on this....but still it was quite enjoyable to work on this at times..and maybe the whole painting woulda been even more fun if I wasn't feelin so weird. Still, the good thing and maybe the bad thing (haha) about fanart month is that, no matter how bad I feel I'll have to churn out a painting everyday...and make it look as nice as I can within the time limit. Anyways technically this is the last painting from October, tho I did finish it now...it's the 1st xD But I felt it's a good idea to close the month with Pokemon as I did start off fanart month with Pokemon as well hehe. Also POKEMON RULEZ KTHNXBAI
HAPPY HALLOWEEN ERRYBODYY
Weell wanted to paint something simple, and I thought..I haven't painted Go Go yet!!! And I love Go Go! How could this be?? So yeah, thought I'd paint a school going version of Go Go. Think I'll paint Honey as well. It was pretty fun to paint and went fairly smoothly...again all hail flat style :B
p.s - That tamago sure looks delish * q *
Should prolly draw her enjoyin some noodles at a noodle bar or sth...would be nice. ANYWAYS, I'm all caught up with teh fanarts, phew!!! Now to get some sleeep. Ciao!
Okami is such an incredible game and I really love Okamiden to bits as well :D Anyways, I wanted to paint Shiranui but I fail at drawing wolves atm..still learning lol, so decided to paint Amaterasu's human form..which is how she's usually perceived traditionally..but yeah it's something I've been wanting to paint for a really long time now..and I love East Asian ink and watercolour paintings A LOT..esp love Sumi-e and so Okami's style is just something I loved instantly and is one of my most favourite visual styles. This was a lot of fun and I always love playing with more traditional look to digital paintings. Missed painting in this style a lot >3< Been ages since I last tried something inky like this..was prolly around the beginning of this year? At any rate..need to paint more stuff like this :D
[EDIT: Updated with the finished painting. Considering the sketch, the end result turned out fairly decent XD ]
YEP!! Probably my most favourite female Disney character :D Mulan is the biggest badass out there and I haven't drawn her in ages, so yeah about time : 3 still a wip, but I caught a cold yesterday and also shitty internet has slowed me down somewhat, but no worries I'll finish it up soon and post it up :D
EDIT: OK I've been trying to upload the artwork for hours...and no success :/ So I'm attaching the dA link for now: http://fav.me/d9e5zb9
Song of the Sea is one of the most incredible I've ever seen....its just so so amazing and breathtaking and inspiring..ALL TEH FEELS MAN..
Since it's my 20th day of doing daily fanarts, thought I'd paint something special : ) Also got it done before time today, so yay : 3
[Edit: Updated with the finished painting. Took around 1.5 hours more. And with this the trio of the 3 Persona protagonists are done! Can't believe I painted them, I've been wanting to for so long!! I'm sorry but this is something big for me in a way. Also maintained the same style throughout :D Anyways, it's been a lot of fun painting these three. Now to do some other fanart for the next three days :3 ]
It's been tough managing time the last few days, so got late again today. Anyways, here is the sketch for now!
Got late again on this one, but it'll be done soon. Be back with the update!
[edit: Updated with the finished artwork. Took an hour more. Not much to say here, cept I LOVE PERSONA 3 <333 And I need to paint a bazillion more Persona fanart xD This was quite fun to do, but I was rushing like mad cause I'm having to design a character for a contest I'm entering in a few days. Yay for last minute entries =w= ]
[EDIT: Added the finished illustration :D Took half an hour more : 3 Went for a simplistic look, will have to do more detailed fanart after fanart month is done ]
Persona 5 is coming out next year man, this game is looking so good! Uber excited about it, so this had to be done. Uploading the wip cause I'm not done yet, but it'll be done in the next hour or so. Stupid power cuts :/
[EDIT : I finished it! Added the updated file, but I'm keeping the version I initially uploaded. I was going for a flat look and I almost ruined the look by adding more volumetric shading -___- But yeah glad I snapped back to my senses and I'm fairly happy with how it turned out ;3]
Okay so I got kinda late with today's one and also this is like 90% done, so not fully complete. The power went out twice while I was working on it and this process also is taking longer than i expected...but still, it's almost done and it still counts right? xD (will update when complete)
But yeah it's Gwendolyn from Odin Sphere...she's such an amazing character, love her design....it's so complex yet so beautiful...and Odin Sphere is such an amazing game, I'm so glad it's getting an HD remake!! So I've been playing this game for a while and it's been an amazing journey so far. ALL TEH FEEELS
Persona 3 is one of my favourite games of all time...and wanted to paint something fun and simple. So thought I'd paint Yukari today. Had a sleepless and tiring day and so wanted to paint it loosely....cleaned up more than I wanted to but hey it was relaxing and fun to paint. So yeah. Didn't turn out that bad I guess xD But I really need to stop myself from refining so much at times e___e
Man I've been wanting to paint Jack for like...fricking FOREVERRR! I love ROTG so much and all the characters are so epic >w< So yeah I'm really happy I painted him today. And it didn't turn out horrible either, so there is that. It was a lot of fun to practice with textures on this one and also on a slightly different painting technique as well. I think I'm getting more streamlined at this style, like have a proper workflow an all. That definitely helps make things faster and easier in the long run. Aaanyways, I'm pretty happy with how this turned out and it was really relaxing too so I'm glad : 3
Welp, another semi realistic portrait fanart xD It's Princess Bubblegum! Consider how horrid the sketch was, the finished painting turned out way, way nicer, so yeah kinda happy with it...and considering how tired I was...I'm just glad I finished it and it was a lot of fun as well. Wooot day 6 done!
