oni-tiger girl

This drawing took me 5 days to finish! I started this drawing on Tuesday, but was not able to finish it during lunch. It was a very long and personally difficult week to get through, and from the begining I had felt as tired like the girl appearently looks like, but not as comfortable. I wasn't sure where I was gong when I started the drawing besides the fact that I was feeling exhausted and wante dot express that in my drawing, my Friend James suggested that I draw a horn on her, and so i did and fromt hat point it becames this oni-tiger skined themed pic. I guess this girl is like my verson of Rumiko Takahashi's Lum. I'm not sure if it was worth taking 5 days to finish this drawing, but overall I'm glad it's done. At least it's one thing I said I have accomplished this week. Now if only I can actually fix the real problems in my life....

Work in progress 3d skullbunny

I have working on this skullbunny model on and off for little over a week now and the head has been so frustrating to smooth out the corners of the head since I started modeling it from a cube.

But overall I think it's coming along well.

Thank you Yuka!!!

A while back I was feeling a bit unsure about the way I've been drawing girls, then suddenly from literally out of no where my friend Yuka sent me an email that said she enjoys the way I draw girls! It really cheered me up! Yuka also sent me a beautiful drawing of a bunny girl!

Yuka is a very talented artist and you can view her work here: http://studioyuka.blogspot.com/

Science and Magic!

I did'nt capture the image in my head :( It would have been more playful and lively!

For a drawing done in pen, I still feel its quite uptight and not as loose as I would like it to be. The inconsitency in the line thickness makes me feel like I'm still insecure about my lines and that my pen control is totally sucking. To my defense, I haven't drawn wiht pen in a while so regaining what pen control I felt I had back in the day will take a while to come back. I'm trying to draw more and more with pen b/c I think it makes artist see their mistakes b/c they can't erase. but at the sametime it may also make an artist repetive and stuck in a comfortable stroke. I'll try drawing things I don't really want to then! Maybe...

This drawing is for NaeNae, b/c she likes witches! I will color it for you later NaeNae!

Thank you MJ!

This is a watercolor painting I made for my friend MJ.

She brought me back a tin of cookies from the Studio Ghibili Museum in Mitaka, Japan. That tin of cookies means more to me than anyone will ever know. Thank you again MJ!
