Day 20. Bokeh.

First of all I had to google what the term "Bokeh" means.
After that I kind of decided to skip the topic and do something else.
So I decided to make something shiny for my friend at conceptart.org (cause she likes shiny stuff) .

Also it's ready to poke other people with it's other hand so it's kind of derived from the word "Bokeh", and thus I'm almost like on the topic.

Oh and photo ref used.

Day 18. Your shoes

First of all sorry for such a long break in updates. Long story short, on Saturday I was celebrating at my friend's place, on Sunday I was trying to survive the celebrating, on Monday I had to try Diablo 3 (I'm so weak), aand on Tuesday I just sucked even more than usually. But enough with the excuses.

Oh noes I ruined mi beautiful shoes. (Life studies)

Also some reffed stuff.

And some stuff from imagination.

Day Challenge break!

Today I just wanted to do some loosening up exercises and do stuff without getting into details at all. At the same time just trying to understand stuff like values and colors. I also tried, for the first time, to paint colors with opacity at 100% (so no pen pressure used) during the whole process. It was really hard but good exercise to learn to paint colors correctly. Photo refs used.

Day 16. Long exposure.

Don't know if you can see the long exposure in this (bicycling) painting but it was a good and fun study anyways.

Got carried away and did another photostudy too. Just finding out how much I know about colors and trying to learn something new. Photos references were found in google.

Day 15. Silhouette

Here's some hot babes for you (if you're into that kind of stuff). Well the photos were hot but unfortunately you just have to settle for crappy silhouettes, sorry buahhahhaa. Better luck next time. Well this was fun though! Might do some more. Maybe some musclemen hmm..

Day 14: Eye(lash monsters) with secret numbers!

I seriously had no idea what I was doing here, and I have absolutely no idea how to make eyes. Just took some photo refs and tried to learn something. Eyelashes are really hard. I mean really. Not pleased with the results. Buut on the bright side I think I might actually learn to pain these if I just practise. I think I actually did learn something already. (Or wait, is it all in my head? Can't always tell. Hmm what?)

Also adding some randomness quick screenshot studies where I'm just trying to learn to understand values and forms.

Day 13: Ant

It's an aaaant! Yack. Don't like those. But it was fun to paint. Photo ref used (obviously).

Erm there's nothing fishy going on here. Just keep staring at the ant. Cause it really was the topic.

Day 12. Sunset.

Guess I don't need to tell you that these are pretty quick photostudies.
Ngh. I..really..should..learn..to...use...more...brushes.. And learn to like, I don't know.. paint.

Ref pics again from terragalleria.com.

Oh hey guess what I'm starting to play Guild Wars 2 soon. But I promise not to play it that hc. And I promise to keep drawing and painting. Really I do! But I mean have you checked out Guild Wars 2 conceptart?? Check it out. I mean.. it's just... Amazing! Man, if I could do that kind of stuff from my head. It would be like pretty fantastic. Hmm also I would propably be working in the art industry then. :D

Day 11: Something blue

Here's some blues for you!
Allthough they are not really that blue, I cheated again.
And I'm also one day late again. But I compensated it by making two pics so it's an equivalent trade!

Photo refs are from terragalleria.com

Day 10: Childhood mem..Wait what??

So day 10 became mission impossible for me so I cheated and asked a new topic from my little bro.
The topic he gave was alien (as in not the movie-alien, but just alien in general). I'm so terrible at drawing creatures from imagination. I don't even know what this is, just tried to mess something up. And it's terrible. I mean seriously. Really terrible. I'm embarrassed to post it here. Hmm maybe if I started drawing more bugs I could do creatures from imagination. That would be neat.

Oh and also I want to show you this awesome Totoro phone case I got today from Thailand!
It's made by "Rabbitsmile" in Etsy. Check out her awesome shop!

Day 9: Someone you love

It's my husband, whom I love very much. <3
He stole my heart eight years ago and has since owned it. And I don't mind. :)
Wanted to make it perfect but didn't really manage in it.. There's something fishy with the eyes at least.

So I will not be able to draw tomorrow but I'll be updating again on sunday.

Also since I've been feeling all so girly and emotional today, I'm sharing you this beautiful music video, check it out if you haven't yet!

Day 8: A bad habit

Just some pencil scribbling this time. It is supposed to present my shopping addiction... to art stuff!
I just loove shopping new pencils, brushes, sketchbooks and other art supplies. I don't know if it's a bad habit but well..

But it's the little dragon sittin on my shoulder who's making me buy these stuff!! Seriously! You can't see it?? She is actually not even supposed to look like me, just didn't feel like drawing me, physically, just methaphorically. In a way. Or something. I don't even know what I'm mumbling about myself.  -_-

Day 7: Fruit

Aa it's a failed apple!! Emo/wrists. No just kidding. Not on the failing part though. Tried to make it look as realistic as possible (and it took loong),  but would have taken propably many more hours still to make it look like I wanted. It started out as a still-life study but then I continued it from photo since I got scared of sun disappearing again in the middle of things.

Day 6: From a low angle.

Gnaaaargh! It's not really from that low angle! I'm clearly having difficulties in understanding my assignments. It's an unfinished still-life (since I ran out of daylight).

Day 5: From a high angle

This is the place where I work during the days doing some basic office stuff like accounting and, I don't know, daydreaming about slaying and/or taming dragons, hunting the trolls, adventuring in beautiful green valleys filled with different sized bug-like creatures and monsters and throwing fireballs at some vicious evil sorcerers. Stuff like that.

Had a troubles with perspective in this one, as you can see. It's so messy and, and.. Also it's not really from that high angle, meh.
