My dear boyfie got my this art book for my birthday last year. This is me finally putting it to good use with some watercolor studies, :D
I enjoyed Shovel Knight!
I thought I’d have to grow up and give up games to succeed as an adult… NOPE. Don’t give up the things you love! What I would go back in time 6 years ago and shake myself out of such a silly thought.
Edit: Squeee, Yacht Club Games shared the piece.
This is an abstract piece inspired by the camphor tree in My Neighbor Totoro. Got to use my blue/green Zigs for it. Happy!
A week ago, I had Cintiq lust and then Cintiq price bust. A hobbyist seriously cannot even.
However, this time I discovered a cost friendly alternative – the Yiynova.
Granted I’ve only been playing with it for one night, but so far:
- Like many reviews mention, there is a huge distance between the digital cursor and the physical pen nib.
- What bugs me the most personally is that the nib only comes in shiny plastic. I am really fond of the felty nib Wacom has.
- However this has still been worthwhile considering purchasing it refurbished meant it cost less than a 16GB iPad. But again, I’ve only had this for a day.
OK, this aside, Wonder Woman!
Happy Mother’s Day! 🌹 My mom circa 1985 and a Sunday painting session at home in the granite counter top we picked out remodeling whilst I was in high school at home.
A study / piece very much inspired by Marumiyan’s work. I’ve literally haven’t painted in gouache since 2006. This is the best gift I can give myself really. Expect more now that I finally have time, space, and money to do these things! ;)
Attempting to unwind after a long day and (would be) trivial rude encounter.

New Watercolor Pencils
A quick sketch featuring my new Rose Lake Madder watercolor pencil.
Yesterday, I drew my first “napkin sketches.” These things are all the rage and apparently are the cornerstones of great ideas. Unfortunately, this is the only one I can show as the others contain sketches for a *stealth* start-up, exciting!
Also, I promise I don’t draw geeky bears all day! I’m productive I swear!
Not gonna lie, I do miss drawing manga-style sometimes.
My thought process went something like this…
- Man, this fanart sucks. I could do better.
- Bust open Photoshop.
- Anatomy, what.
- 2 hours later… No, I’m really rusty and can’t do better (for now!)
Something about inhabiting the room which I spent my teenage years prompts me to draw manga style like old times.
Kind of based off of Akali @ League of Legends
