Blue Dragon Art

This is a long one. I talk about drawing hands. I have a few disclaimers, because everyone learns differently and I can't be held responsible if what worked for me doesn't work for everyone. I also want to stress I'm not that great with hands, but compared from where I was at the start of my comic, to where I am now, I think I reasonably get the point across.

I babble. I ramble. This is just how I am. I am not a teacher XD Please forgive me for not being concise. I hope this helps and that it is enjoyed! I don't claim to be a great artist, but there are a few tips I can impart from my own experience.

Topics:
Study from Life
-your hands
-photos
-real people
-artists you like

DO THE WORK
-Stressed throughout video that studying is great, but doing is going to help most people improve.

Mentors
-Be Polite, Ya Piece of...Treasure :D
-Don't harass people for tutelage (no means no)
-Follow through with instruction/suggestion/workouts

Hand Models

Study from Books
-tutorials
-guides
-tasks

Break it Down
-shapes
-landmarks
-negative vs positive space

Demonstrations
-quick example sketches
-applying the instruction

"Psychic Magic," "Weekend at Tattoine," "A Mystical Experience," and "URL Melt" by Unicorn Heads

*FYI Bitchute has a processing problem :/ I uploaded this Friday in plenty of time for it to post at 8pm. But it was still processing a 8pm. And still processing at 12am on Saturday. I went to bed. It was still processing.

So Sunday I tried re-uploading it. And Monday it was was till processing -_-

So I tried re-uploading it once more. And finally it took. I have NO clue what that madness was all about :/

I'm sorry to anyone wanting to watch my videos. I don't know what to do about this issue. But it's up now. Thank you for your understanding.

Original message below
__________

I just wanted to make this video to give an update on what's to come, why I ended up posting last Wednesday's video (essentially, had no time at that point to make another video), and some real life updates.

FYI, I've run out of audio. I am with my family at this time, and so the following videos will not have audio commentary accompanying them until I return home and have time to settle down and focus on work once more.

Thank you for your understanding.

Le sigh...I didn't realize I forgot to click out of the "credits" card before exporting this video. I always put the credits here in the description, but I like to put them in video to, in case people don't want to come down here D:

Sorry about this. Life is really stressful at the moment and I threw this video together the day before flying to Illinois to be with family during my dad's final days with us. I appreciate your understanding. Please see the credits here in the description.
_____________________________
I just wanted to make people aware of some free resources I give out. I make patterns sometimes, since I sell my comic in hard copy form and want to make sure I am not stepping on anyone's toes. But I also like to share these, to get more use out of my time and to provide some free resources for other artists/comickers/whoever.

Enjoy!

"Smoke Jacket Blues " and "A Night Alone " by Track Tribe

It's a little past the middle of the year, and I wanted to check on my 2022 goals and see how on target I am to achieving what I set out to accomplish this year! I hope this video acts as a reminder to those working on their own goals, or as inspiration to work towards the things you find important!

I apologize for the lack of enthusiasm: I had gotten down with a very long hike, had been scrambling to get footage and audio recorded, and have been dealing with a lot (my whole family has). So I didn't have a lot of energy while recorded this.

This video is in reference to my 2022 New Year's Resolutions video. You may watch it here:

Apologies for the delayed upload. I have been traveling all day to Illinois to be with family. While uploading is important, family comes first. I may or may not have some videos up next week. They are my priority at the moment. But I will return to a normal schedule. Thank you for your understanding and patience!

_______________________

This week I wanted to share the work I did with watercolor for the Comic Fury Zine that just released at the beginning of this month. I had a great time experimenting, and I hope this inspires some of you to try something new, or less familiar, with your art or hobbies!

“Rolling Heads" and "Weekend at Tattoine" by Unicorn Heads
"Late Night Train," "Rest Easy," and "Deep State" by Vans in Japan

Doing something different, because I wanted to share some video of going around the town and getting some art supplies.

I DID NOT record inside the store, because some places are weird about that, and I'm very non-confrontational XD But I videoed the outside and have a little section where we view the haul and I go over costs/numbers and how I save on art supplies.

More Dark Horse stuff will be coming in a couple of weeks, possibly next month or for the Q &A at the end of July :D

"Late Night Train," "Rest Easy," and "Deep State" by Vans in Japan

This is a spur of the moment video. I was going to have the tour be a Friday Night Video, but many viewers might have the day off, and I wanted to share this independent artist zine on independence day (US). Enjoy!

Please read the zine and help us promote it! We want readers to be able to find these artists!

Yeee-up, it's the Q & A. I answer a couple Dark Horse questions, and I have a few questions about different art supplies and technique. Ink session this time is of the cover for Act 10: Awakenings.

“The Boy Got Skills” by Max McFerren
“Rest Easy” Vans in Japan
“Let it Happen” South London HiFi

June is Pride Month, and I try my best to do at least one video to celebrate annually. While I've discussed Rhina, Niki, & Xue Feng (the later two have yet to be introduced into the comic), I haven't talked much on Kanna. In this video, I'll explain why.

"Power Shutoff" by Craig MacArthur
"Lulu is the Cat I Like Best" by pATCHES
"Muriel" by Bobby Richards

It's been a little while since the final page of Battle Royal has posted, so I decided it was time to go into some details about my intentions, my struggles, and my attempts to portray a visual I previously feel I failed at in the original incarnation of Dark Horse.

As I've said on this channel before, I think it's good to have a fair, but also critical eye on one's own work. So when I look back on older pages, I'm fair to myself, but also critical as a means to help improve.

"Above Planets" and "Alaska Skies" by Patrick Patrikios
"Midnyte" by Noir Et Blanc Vie

**Whoa! Big correction! I called a character on the cover "Kate Blast," but it was actually Ashley from Alter Girl! I had a sneaky suspicion I was wrong, but going back through after the video I was like, oh sh*t! So yeah, Alter Girl! No Kate Blast! Both are in our collective. Okay, now onto the regular description.

It's here! The debut of Glitter and Gold: Aradia Magical Girl Collective's FIRST zine! Join me as we take a quick flip through the FREE 30 page zine coordinated and dispersed by Aradia!

"Jupiter" by Silent Partner
"Take me Down to the Fashion Show" by NoMBe

I misspelled Procurements in the video title card. Also, "procurments is technically not a word, I guess, but hey! I'm using it XD

Patrons have questions, I have answers. I talk about my scanner, my planner, my art manner, and more!

The final peek into my 2015-2021 sketch book tour. It's long, but believe you me, I edited out over 20 minutes of stuff. There's more art that I am proud of in this video, but there's still a lot of literally sketchy sketches that are just jotting down ideas :D

Comic Fury Zine, a free comics anthology, is currently in the works for summer 2022, and I decided I'd go ahead and create my own one-shot for Dark Horse. In this video, I work on the cover art for my submission. I discuss my influences, process, and intent with this short story. During the video, I sketch, collage, and ink the cover art.

Apologies:
*I like iMovie, but it has some really annoying quirks! I had updated the credits card, but if you click out of it or don't click out of it (there's something I don't know what, or I'd stop doing it), it will not save your changes D: I'm sorry there's no credits in the video proper :( Ultimately, this was my fault for being in a hurry and not paying attention to details. I apologize. FYI: Credits are always listed here in the description! *

Got lots of questions about Shimiko, from my comic Dark Horse. So let's answer some of them! There's also a few updates on the completion of the revamp of Act 9 and events.

"Last Train to Mars" by Dan Lebowitz

I am sorry for the delay! This was ready and uploaded at 4pm on Earth Day. The processing took...wow. Just wow. Sorry I didn't get this video done Thursday. I had no idea it would take so long to process (not upload, it uploaded relatively quick). My apologies!

I just did a blue character with pink hair, now it's a pink character with blue clothes. Clearly I need a knew scheme! Color scheme, that is. Anywho!

This is not the greatest of videos high lighting Earth Day. I am a mess this year, and that's evident in how little I talk about the earth. But uh...I name drop FFVII...that's um...that's like earth support group video game, right? Right?

No. Anyway, have fun while I draw a flower fairy and stream of conscious babble :D
