Blue Dragon Art

This month's Q & A narrows in on three questions I received; Do I give critiques (of art/comics); How do you refill a Copic Marker (I don't, someone else does); and what's up with Aradia Beat?

This video contains the same amount of nudity you'd come across from the Western "masters" during the Classical and Neoclassical Art periods, with an Art Nouveau flair. I am therefore not tagging this for censorship.

Regarding the critique segment of this video, I go into a lot more details on my thoughts on constructive criticism in this video:

Please read the credits for the music (I'm at my Mom's and spending time with family).

Not a tutorial! Just a discussion of my experience with creating graphic text vectors and a vector logo. Also, a splash of '90s (US based) nostalgia circulating the topic of pizza in cartoons & culture. That's just fancy speak for a slap a few clips of pizza related commercials and cartoons/film in here for the fun of it :D

This is another long one! Per usual, this is more conversational, discussing my process for paneling "How I Spent My Vacation" and an in depth dive into how I chose the color scheme for my submission to the Aradia Beat: TGIF the '90s zine, coming to Kickstarter VERY VERY SOON!

Look, I don't have much to say in the description. I had a plan for our window decorations for Halloween, I sketched some, I drew some, painted, cut out, and BAM! It's done.

I hope this inspires you to make your own fun designs.

Not exactly a tutorial, but a sharing of a tutorial. Please check out and support Grenrem on Tiktok if you like this video. I can't claim credit for the technique, but I'm thankful I was able to create my own water background for a panel in the Aradia Beat: TGIF the '90s zine.

More information on when the Kickstarter goes live coming soon!

Want to watch the US 1990s release? Most of it has been archived on Internet Archive (though, some episodes do seem to be missing). While this is the edited version, I feel the characters have a lot of personality and it's still a fun watch. And it's free to access!

It's time to work on another character desi-oh wait, I feel like I've been here before. Oops!

Sokay, I didn't like how I'd previously designed Rhina's outfit/hair for the Aradia Beat '90s zine, so here we go! Gonna redesign it and babble about the influences.

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

“Rolling Heads" and "Weekend at Tattoine" by Unicorn Heads
"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.
