I’ve drawn a few dozen floating Zacchi heads as warm up this week, so I colored some to be less boring.
It’s that guy.
Zacchi for #OC_69min’s “formal attire” prompt.
oh yeah, remember my OCs? I feel like I almost don’t.
Idle Lehelle deertaur/centaur AU doodles.
Don’t be afraid.
I feel guilty any time I go more than a coupla pages in my sketchbook without drawing my OCs, but honestly it’s been really nice to take a break from thinking about them. Guilt is dumb; I draw what I want. And I always get back to them eventually anyway.
Anyway, if I’ve graduated from floating heads to floating torsos, that’s progress.
Pose ref’d from here.
When my brain gets fried, this is the only thing I know how to draw.
Oops, I changed his tattoo again.
An almost villain.
~17 minutes. This week’s color palette thingy.
Gonna finish/color this as soon as I get a chance for sure.
(‘Cause dang look at this perfect, beautiful ref.)
Floating heads and some quick studies/warmups for a series of commissions.
Spring, before the summer of fire.
Not sure if color palette challenge or just color vomit.
A week goes by and I forget how to draw my own characters again.
This week’s color palette thingy.
Zacchi and his siblings.
Naturally, when I stick him in a portrait thing, Zacchi becomes suddenly hard to draw, and I don’t think this is a good example of him??? Maybe I will redraw it later.
When we were young.
This week’s color palette.
I’ve been pretty strict on these challenges, staying with the given colors and not using overlay/multiply layer; I haven’t even really been playing with opacity much. But this one made me realize that there is a point where such a limitation stops being a challenge and starts being detrimental to the piece.
Having such a saturated color as my darkest color really sucked, haha. There is way too much red here, but there wasn’t enough contrast between the remaining colors for me to do what I wanted with the scene. Then again, probably such a scene wasn’t the best choice for the color palette either.
Mostly mumbling to myself. Gotta find a better balance.
One of the old color palettes I didn’t do.
A ton of stuff I need to work on lumped into one picture: limited palette, broad brush strokes with limited refining, harsh lighting, character not floating in space. Not 100% happy with it, but I spent way more time on this than I wanted to already.
We’re falling apart to half time
And these are the lives you love to lead
Dance, this is the way they’d love
If they knew how misery loved me
“Dance, Dance” by Fall Out Boy
This song was stuck in my head, so.
Did you know. Butts are really hard to draw. Even Zacchi, who has like no butt, has a butt which is hard to draw.
It is surprisingly fun to draw people dancing though? (Even without ref??) This piece reminds me of this one except not happy. 8’D
