I’ve been working with digital art for so long, I sometimes forget that it’s not quite tangible, not in the same way pencil lines on paper is. I make a mistake, I click “undo” a few times, and it’s like the mistakes have never happened at all. This makes me reckless and clumsy. I also can experiment more, take more risks and push my lines. I can work over the same drawing over and over again.
Some more Sims fan art, featuring Johnny Smith, Ophelia Nigmos and Ripp Grunt.
I enjoy watching The Murdoch Mysteries (“The Artful Detective” to the Yanks). It’s not gritty or realistic or overly dramatic, but it’s well-done, the characters are interesting and it’s entertaining over all. Much of the appeal for me is also that it’s set in Victorian/Edwardian era Toronto.
Fast sketch for a Sunday morning. By the way, I have a tumblr that I feel like I should be using a little better.
I have noticed one thing I don’t really do, or at least post about: my sketches. This blog, being about my personal art progress, lacks records of me actually practicing. Admittedly, I rounding out my drawings with more finished lines, colour and shading and I like showing off those. I do sketch, but they are more like doodles and to me, it’s kind of embarrassing to show off. See, I’m still comparing myself to every other artist out there.
