Sketch a Day 11/29/09

I'm delirious with sickness, so this is the best I can do for now. It always bums me out when I play Mario Kart Wii with someone and they don't have Rosalina unlocked.

Sketch a Day 11/27/09 + 11/28/09

I skipped Thanksgiving just cuz, but then the day after I met up with some friends so I didn't have time to submit my sketch for yesterday. Woops! Ergo, today I will submit 2.

I'm pretty sure K-On! is one of the cutest animes I've ever seen. It's one of the few shows where I actually enjoy all the characters, but my favorite is definitely Mugi. Also, pay no mind to what her body's doing. Pay no miiiiiiind.

Also, Haruhara Haruko. I keep trying to call her Haruhi, but that's something else.

Sketch a Day 11/25/09

I can't express how much I was affected by Urusei Yatsura as a kid. I'm pretty sure it was one of the first animes I watched ever, and it's also probably the thing that turned my tender young brain on to girly art. I mean, if there's anything cuter than Lum yelling "Darling!" while flying after that boy (who I can never remember his name), I don't want to know.

Also, I officially proclaim this week "The Girls of Fanart" week. Next week my sketches will all be some other theme, most likely animal studies. Or maybe landscape shtuff. We'll see. As much fun as it is to draw some of my favorite characters, I need to actually do something challenging for once. Siiiiiiiigh.

I can feel my watercolors getting weirder and weirder. I guess that's a good thing.

Sketch a Day 11/24/09

Day 2. I love this game so much, but not enough to be able to sit and wade through its convoluted and repetitive entirety. I wish someone else would play it for me and I'll sit and watch like a movie. Alas 3 stories was a far as I can get. I think one of my biggest regrets is not pre-ordering Odin Sphere in Japan and missing out on the limited edition art book that came with it. Sigh.

Also, just in case anyone's wondering, I'm doing these in digital watercolor not just cuz it's fast, but also cuz I'll be coloring in my layouts for my film soon. I just want to get as much experimenting done before then.

Sketch a Day 11/23/09

As part of a ploy to make myself productive over the break, I'm going to be submitting a sketch every day. Somehow something about being at home makes me lose all creative drive, and since I have a lot of schoolwork to get done hopefully this will work as a kind of "warm-up" to get things going.

Today I felt like drawing Miku from Vocaloid, who I'm still not too sure what she is, but love the design nonetheless. Also, digital watercolors are hard.

I do really appreciate the fact that since these are just 10 minute sketches I don't have to worry about trying to impress anyone. I find myself having more fun with colors and stuff this way.
