Pierre is ridiculously fun to draw.



Ice cream.



It's too late for me.



Was trying to decide between these two colour schemes. Originally I wanted brown skin + two-tone hair colour, but found it didn't really work well so I split them up.


Ended up changing the brown skin design to have darker hair.






It's been 10 years since I first started drawing digitally.


There's actually a bit of a story behind that first picture, and since I haven't made a longer post on my blog for awhile, I suppose now is as good a time as any to write it up.


This was actually the first picture I ever drew digitally, I was a pencil & paper artist before this. I believe it was drawn in Macromedia Flash, since I didn't know how to use Photoshop at the time. Prior to this, I used to mostly draw other things like stickmen, or barbarians and paladins. It's funny because I never used to draw girls, but these days it seems that's all I draw.


Back in 2007 I was still in high school, and I felt like I was okay at drawing. Looking back, I can see that I really didn't know anything at all, and hopefully in 10 more years I can look back on today and still say the same, because then it'd mean I've actually progressed.


The character that I drew was based on 2 shows that had a pretty big influence on me when I got into anime at that time, the first being Suzumiya Haruhi no Yuuutsu, and the second being Kimi ga Nozomu Eien. The characters I looked at were Haruhi and Akane, respectively. I had no idea what an actual school uniform was supposed to look like, which is why the result ended up being so woefully considered.


I think, looking back, I'm really grateful that I did actually have some confidence as an artist back then, however unfounded it was. Because I realized that the only reason I've even gotten to the point I have today is because I didn't give up back then. I feel that's very important when you're just starting out. Of course it's important to be able to self-evaluate and identify what you need to improve at, but it's also important to have some self-belief so that the entire experience isn't a miserable one.


To be honest, it doesn't even much look like a 10 year difference picture. At most it would seem like 3-4 years, at least by any serious artist. But for me, there have been a multitude of things I've learnt in the time that has taken place between those two drawings, and I'm grateful for the fact this is still a hobby I love and enjoy. I understand that everybody wants to improve as quickly as possible, but at the end of the day, drawing should be enjoyable, and I hope you all have fun drawing, too!


Thanks for taking the time to read this, I'll be sure to post a third update in another 10 years.


Okay last Astolfo before I go back to working on the doujin.



Hello to the 12 people who visit this blog. I'm having quite a lot of fun drawing right now, it's hard to stop.




Scribbled some big breasts to counter-act all the flat chests I've been drawing lately.




In the spirit of trying to keep my blog alive, here's another screenshot lol.


This film also looks really interesting, the cast is ridiculously stacked.
