But I just ate my last apple for lunch this afternoon. ;_; I'll have to buy more this weekend. Unless you're suggesting mac. In which case, I do have some extra eye-shadow and lipstick somewhere...

SEXY. i really like the curls in her hair. and the expression on her face. (or rather. the lack thereof).
LaMeep (Jan 17, 2009)
Oh this is beautiful! Love the colors and the curls :)
Stronghold (Jan 17, 2009)

pose from memory, mirror used for neck area.

Haven't done much drawing lately. I felt like dancing today and wanted to capture my character Ginger in a fun movement pose. Think I captured it as best i could as a short 20 min drawing before bedtime. Marking it as unfinished because I think I should fix her hair a bit.. maybe later. :)

I think that one of the greatest challenges of figure drawing is be able to draw poses that are realistic enough and believable too. It's something I really admire about comic book artists, who can draw characters in different situations and have their poses look natural (well, most of the good ones; a few don't really do a good job...). Anyhow, I think its neat how in a rough-looking picture I can just add a few lines and make it look like she is wearing a shirt of sorts so I don't have to ponder how to do her nipples. XD

edit: ok, i hate how i wanted this to be a short sketch and ended up trying to refine things a bit too much. Ok it's finished!

Juni_gatsu (Aug 8, 2008)
Gorgeous, love the lines and the blocky colour. I feel like this should part of a series, so much movement!

Didn't come out exactly the way I first envisioned, but.. oh wells. :)
I know. the nipples kinda bother me too. Sorry. :( This is what happens when you look at fetish photography all morning;;;;;
Is there a better way out there to do polka-dotted backgrounds than eyeballing each individual dot......? T_T

Since the days have been getting longer, and I've been driving home from work while there's still sunlight out, I've been inspired by a lot of the scenery I pass by. The sunsets along the countryside is so beautiful. On the days that my carpool drives, I always feel really lucky to be able to enjoy the beauty that life has to offer (and in some respects, I guess I'm glad the car ride is so long... I drive 40 miles to work every day). Although I've been in a drawing rut for the past few months, each time I experience a beautiful view, I'm inspired to draw it down, even though my skills are nowhere near good enough to capture these fleeting moments as they pass me by. One of these days I'll come back and attempt something more inspiring, and hopefully do it justice. :)

I think I was trying to go for "rolling hills" but I feel like they look more like green-shaded breasts in the foreground... -_-;;;

You say that like having green shaded breasts in the foreground would be a bad thing! Your sky is pretty

the sound of rain and how it feels to stand in it, to dance in it.
(but be careful and don't get sick like I did)

I've been wanting to draw this whole week, but I haven't had an inch of time on my hands. But! Come friday, lovely friday, you are a darling today. I hope everyone has had a lovely week. Don't stress, relax, and enjoy the rain. :)

(this picture took me way more than just 21 secs... it was MIA and had to be recovered ;___; )

erm, if there is a grammatical error in the title, please let me know, because french is not my first, second, or third language... XD

This is the "top half" of a project I've been working on. There is a second painting of a girl that can be placed below this picture (her hair connects with the "root"/trunk of the tree, which is why it looks like it's going off the page), and can also be placed to the left of this picture (the flowers in her hair morph into the petals, which connect to the tree from the left). This week, I've been working on color planning for this painting (series of paintings), and thought to myself: Planning out this step on Marcello's wonderful website will be a good way for me to organize my thoughts and work out the details. So here I am. The theme is supposed to be "Black and white, with red accents" but like everything else in my life, I've been putting too much focus on the reds.

I haven't really decided what to do with the background yet, other than it's going to be predominantly black and white, hopefully with high contrast. Plus, my hand is starting to hurt. So I figure I'll leave it as is for now. :)
