Teen Ruth 3. Getting back on the horse, so expect quite a few weird, out-of-context pics like these in the near future. ^^;;;
Q:I really, really, really, Really, REALLY LOVE your ART!!!!The moment I saw it in Deviant Art I fell inlove with them especially Theodore "teehee" >< Anyway just wanted to ask how long does it take to be really good? OR how much do you practice per day? I hope its not a nonsense question ><
Aww, dear, no! It’s not a nonsense question at all!!!!! XD
It all depends on how hard you work. I’ve seen people just start out and become reasonably decent in the space of just one year. It can be quite staggering how quickly you can improve if you just put your mind to it.
Practice—repetition—is important, but don’t forget to allocate time to your art studies. If you don’t research and discover all the bits that make up what you’re drawing, you’ll only practice how to draw vapid shells. You need to understand the meat’n’bones (literally!) of your characters, not just the skin. ^_^ Plus if you don’t study, you’ll stagnate. And that sucks. xD
I draw strictly in my free time, and it amounts to about 14 to 16 hours of drawing per week (normally 3 to 4 hours straight at a time), with 6 to 9 extra hours per month for studies. This is excluding time spent colouring or painting.
My advice for improving is to just keep going at a pace with which you feel comfortable and increase your study time. Keep your fun drawing time and your study time separate to best avoid an art block or burn-out. Rather use fun drawing time to loosely apply what you learned and keep the focus on the ideas your trying to convey rather than the exact structure of everything. Leave structure for study time. You’ll notice things will get easier to draw.
And enjoy the process! Never forget you’re drawing because you LOVE it! :D
Thanks for all your kind words and for the support! I love that you love Theodore!!!! x) YAY!
GOOD LUCK!! <3
Seeing double. No, seriously, I think I am. Too much studying arrrgghhh. Little distractions like these are keeping me sane, though.
I read once (Warning. Source: Internet.) that if you ever saw yourself in real life (not in a mirror or a photo), you wouldn’t recognise yourself as, well, you. Just something I remembered while drawing this. :)
Anyways, two versions of my immortal character, Gangfield. I’ve never drawn these particular designs side-by-side before, so I figured, what the hey. ^_^ Turns out a century doesn’t make much of a difference, really. I was admittedly hoping for something more drastic. :I
So! :D Which Gangfield is your favourite?
Study Break Sketches. Finally got a breather in between my exams to draw some. I watched the 80’s block on VH1 Classic last night so psh tch gosh obviously this is what I drew straight after pshhhh. ;D
Thanks for everyone’s kindness and encouragement regarding my exam-related absence! You guys are awesome—seriously! <3
*sigh* Back to the books! ^^;
Quick Update from Ez
Hey Friends and Followers! :D
Sorry I’m totally MIA. I’m busy writing exams until the 25th, which means all my energy is going into my studies.
If anyone wants to get in touch with me, I still check my Tumblr every now and then. ^_^ This whole exam thing really only means I won’t be drawing or posting new pics, is all. ^^; I also won’t be answering any questions right away, but I’ll get to those ASAP, promise. ;)
Thanks for the overwhelming support. You guys make every day so special. <3
Stay awesome, guys! Catch you at the end of the month!! ;D
Q:your art are amazing do you make tutorials? I want to improve my way of drawing
Rough Gangfield back story sketches.
Just really had some fun with these. Top one is where Gangfield’s recovering from some seriously painful brandings all over his body. I thought maybe a “mummy look” would seem harrowing, but it looks goofy instead.
Then a full body shot to get a feel for the shapes I want on him. His head’s a little big, though. ^^;
HIS HEAD’S BIG BECAUSE HIS BRAIN’S BIG OKAY!!! D:<
Well this is awkward. :I
Posting this anyways because I’m just so freaking giddy to be updating with new sketches again instead of recycling old stuff.
Teen Ruth 2. Doodled some yesterday and today and this is what came out. I’m still incredibly rusty, but I’m just so dang happy to be drawing again. ^^;
