Dreamgirl (WIP)

The girl's likeness in the last drawing wasn't bad, but it wasn't quite what I was going for, so I scrapped it and started anew. This likeness is much closer to the mark.

But I really don't enjoy drawing hair.

Cover and interior pages of a comic I started recently, Cy Staton, Intergalactic Postal Worker. Third page not finished.

Not very satisfied with the colouring. The uncoloured version looks better (but I'm too lazy to make a SFW version of that one).

I drew Pris from Blade Runner. I'm not entirely happy with it.

Here I've digitally colored it. It was just an excuse to experiment with different tools on this drawing app.

The more complete third page from the earlier post. Also, none of the lettering is final, since these aren’t real scans, just pictures of the pages i took with my phone and I just typed the letters on with phone apps.

I actually hand letter these pages first, to practice lettering, but I’m still no good so I redo it with a font I downloaded from Blambot.

I love to paint now and I'm depressed and weirded out when I'm not painting, but I lose energy damnit, so now I'm exhausted and hurting bad cause there's a painting right over there and here I am typing this. Here's the first painting I've made that I actually love:

I had to hear "paint what you love" from a few different people, but at what cost, I found inspiration but thats all it can ever be. I don't think its all bad tho because "it was here, in this blighted place that he learned to live again", something like that.

I recently found a tutorial on how to replicate the two-colour Technicolor look in GIMP, and I've just gone nuts with it.

^ Wow! I didn't notice you'd posted that. It's like if Van Gogh had been commissioned to do a prog-rock gatefold album cover.

I've started teaching myself Blender with lots of youtube tutorials. I've been sculpting faces, trying to get a hold of the tools. This face isn't the best, there are no ears yet, and the mouth area especially is not fully sculpted with lips and teeth and whatnot, but it is the most developed render I've done so far, with attempts at nice lighting, advanced skin, actual eyes that aren't painted on, and hair that isn't a solid action-figure-like blob.

I think he looks kind of like a caricature of Benedict Cumberbatch at the moment.
