The story of Clara’s life. Or anyone else’s, for that matter.
Rough animation due to boredom, 1.5 hrs.
Sorry for the multiple uploads, never put a gif on tumblr before, and there’s rules to making it work as a preview and a close-up, want to get it to work for both things, so bear with me! :)
I’m not 100% happy with this, mostly because it doesn’t feel dynamic enough, in both pose and facial shading. Buuuttt this was the first time I’ve done a portrait of someone without heavy structural reference, so I guess those skull studies I did a couple of weeks back helped me out a lot. xD
Long time no post! Been in over my head with work, and for now I have a lovely window where work is at a gorgeous minimum. So I decided to draw Clara, in a new outfit. This isn’t final, but her previous wardrobe was what I came up with when I first drew her four years ago, when I wasn’t all that design savvy. I still have to work on that savvyness, but she fits more of her assassin role in the story now. ~
Trying out a lineless style to see what I can come up with. Did this sketch of the gal at a train station, using a vogue picture as fashion reference. ;D She sure loves ‘dem tartans!! ;D
I have done more lineless bits and pieces, but they’re for a project I want to keep under wraps for now. Until then, meet Lily!
A complete redesign of a character that’s been around for a while, but hasn’t debuted on this Tumblr before. If you’re familiar with my deviantart account, you might have seen this old character before. Maybe. I’m not really that popular. xD
But anyways yeah, someone a little more interesting to look at. I want to push my designs moreso with my characters and make them look like they have their own uniqueness about them.
I currently suck at explaining things, I still feel half asleep, sorry! ^_^
Long story short, here’s a new design of an old character. :)
Long time no see - I’ve been so busy with uni work, I’ve barely had time to think about this story…
This is a test page for a scene later on in the story, that will probably be completely the opposite to this when I’m finished, so I’m quite happy to put this up here.
I also put in some non-canon dialogue to keep things interesting…? Clara doesn’t like it when many high expectations are put on her…especially when she has to face her problems alone.
Putting this up here for my own personal reference, and for anyone else who’s looking for a free life drawing database, with timed exercises to boot. :) Share around to people you think might benefit from this!
Testing out some ideas in my head, nothing huge. Particularly trying to make characters come to life a bit more.
Next thing to think about is how to better position everythaaang within more effective panels. ;)
Note: There are no particular spoilers here, just character chatter, but since I erased the dialogue, it’s barely even that. Uploading for development’s sake, hope you like the sketches! :)
30 Days of Art Improvement Challenge
Day 11. Draw a BG with 2pt Perspective.
I hated doing this one. I hate the fact I don’t understand two-point perspective, I dislike that I know nothing about architecture and the worst part is if I’m serious about doing comics, I need to learn perspective for backgrounds, and learn it fast. -_______-
Welp, at least the milkshake that kept me through this was yummy. -O-
Slightly more classic chibi style of me. This is pretty much my default gear atm while not going out, since it’s winter and that hoodie of mine is too warm. <3 The last drawing I submitted didn’t destress me, this one hasn’t done much better either, but I’ll get there, no worries. :)
