Here is the third drawing prompt for the Draw Yourself Challenge. I unintentionally used complementary colors for my superhero-self and my villain-self. Villain Myla would be cocky, selfish, and just all around unpleasant. And I added in deadly burps because why not?
Wow look at me already posting another drawing from the Draw Yourself Challenge. *pats self on back*
I quickly spit this one out so we can just ignore the crap coloring job, haha. If I were a superhero I’d definitely want cat-like abilities and I know flying doesn’t really fit but who wouldn’t want to be able to fly??
I stumbled upon this post on tumblr today and decided that I wanted to do it! At first I thought about making it a daily thing but ha like I would draw something new everyday. I would like to try to do at least three a week (lol but I’m talking about me here), even if it’s a 15 minute doodle like the one below. So here’s the first one!
A couple of weeks ago I randomly decided to find some of my old sketchbooks and *shudders* look through them. It actually ended up being a lot of fun for me, it made me nostalgic for how much I used to just draw and doodle. I was really into Sharpies and collage which is why the sides of the sketchbooks are very colorful and bulging. These are from 2010-2011 when I was 17-18…so no judging. Well, you can judge a little it’s okay.
I’m now in my third week of classes and things are going pretty well so far. I’m managing to keep up with all of my classes, all FIVE of them. I usually only take 4 classes per semester because I can only handle so much, but I somehow managed to pull 5 off last Spring. I’ve had a number of small projects in my studio classes and I just wanted to show you guys what I’ve been up to.
In my typography class we have to take a typeface and redesign it with 5 letters: a, e, g, n, and o. I took a type class last semester and was disappointed when I didn’t get to do something like this but NOW I CAN AND I’M SO EXCITED ABOUT IT. The font I chose was “Mrs Eaves”, which is a really nice looking serif font, very classic in appearance. Here are some photos of my progress:

I’ve always loved working with paper, whether it was for school projects, scrapbooking, or cards for friends and family. So of course I would eventually incorporate my love for paper craft with my greatest love, The Lord of the Rings! I made hobbit door cards for the Middle-earth News team last Christmas and was happy to find that it was a fairly easy and relaxing task. I recently thought about making them again, but this time without the standard red and green color scheme of the holiday season. Art tutorials have helped me over the years, and I thought I would try and do one for my cards. I hope you find it helpful!
Last week some of the Middle-earth News ladies and I made toons on the Nimrodel server in LOTRO. It was decided that we make a small family of female dwarves who are sisters. I was pretty excited because I only have one other dwarf toon in LOTRO (Miliori on Landroval), and I have been meaning to make a famle dwarf! So far the family consists of Bismi (me), Brandolfina (Britta), Bartolina (Amanda), and Brib (Alice).yo
This is what Bismi looks like:
My spring semester ended last week, and now that I finally have some free time I can post my graphic novel final project. I’m not totally satisfied with it, but after working on it for over a week, I lost most of my cares.
Programs used: Paint Tool Sai and Adobe Indesign CC. Wacom Bamboo Fun tablet.
I’m FINALLY taking graphic art classes which means that I’m learning how to use programs I’ve never used before like Illustrator and InDesign. I really enjoyed using Illustrator, I’ve never worked with vector shapes before. Still can’t get over how it doesn’t get pixelated… IT’S GREAT but weird because layers work differently in Illustrator than Photoshop. Each shape is its own layer but it’s still part of a layer??
Anyway, during my winter course we had to do a self portrait with this program and you know what? I think I did a pretty good job, considering I’ve never used Illustrator before. I wish I had more time to work on it so I can fix up the colors and shapes but it’s okay.
Moving on to InDesign…THIS IS WHAT I LOVE TO DO. Formatting, text, layout, I love love love doing that kind of stuff. I’m using InDesign a lot in my courses this year and I hope I’ll be able to learn it inside and out.
Sorry for making you look at my face. Even if it is a vector version.
