I was battling with the hair once again, slowly but surely I'll figure it out, or maybe this is actually the process I am gonna use.

Really, I never really know how a piece will look, so its always a surprise either way it goes.

Did some colour experimenting later on.

this isnt even my final form yet D:

I kept reminding myself with prompts not to over do it with colour, it would've ruined the 'anime style'.
The intention from the very start was to slice her head off, but design choices do often change throughout the process.

For now, in order to do close ups, I still have to produce a super large part of the body, gives me more to work with so it works out!
Also lets me make alternative versions.

Had a bit of fun with the editing!

I really think I hit the nail on this one, I stumbled across some 'tips' videos and one important note a lot of them pointed out was, strong shadows!

Also tried reworking my process, aiming for bigger eyes, thats the signature for anime-semi realism, imo

Back again transfering my traditional sketchs, recently I have been thinking of getting lots of incomplete sketches together and seeing what I can do with that mhmm
We'll see...

It was a terrible idea getting an over colourful backplate, I was diving too deep too fast you could say'

Went back in my own time to experiment with a bunch more, probably should've recorded that too, but honestly I didn't think I'd arrive at an answer so fast -.-

I should definately pick backgrounds first and base colours from that!
I'll keep trying to make my own too.

Messy start, very very messy indeed.
Once I can do hair fluently your all in trouble D:
Used a noise overlay to add texture all over, not sure where I saw this being used, but I thought it was a good idea.

This was exciting to do, skin was very glossy, or is it just me?

Couldn't decide how to do the cat or the background, as usual.

Didn't know what to write for this *thinking face*

The Joker makeup is really really fun to draw, wanted to see how it felt to paint, equally as fun :')

Also if you are yet to see the new Joker that came out last year, defo recommend, ironic how well it has done lol.

Yet to do some digital art in 2020, creating lots and lots of bases in my sketchbook!

Returned to try mix some semi realism into the anime style.
I think it went well, trying to use colours that 'work together',
wanted to add some more juice with the threads at the end.
The second half seems to sync up with the beat pretty good :D

I was pondering for a long time if to make bitchute-exclusive content, I get a good reception here as oppose to elsewhere so...

True traditional to semi realism, wasn't sure at the start if I was doing just anime style or not, but came to the conclusion, that was rather boring, I basically already did that on paper, lets flex Photoshop!

When I got to the face, I deadass forgot how to paint faces for a moment, was a wild experiance lol
I really loved how she came out, the highlights are a god-send.

I think hair is my weakness *thinking face* but we'll get there, slowly but surely.

Before this year I maybe attempted digital art 5-10 times over 4-5 years. Yes thats terrible I know, but then I went to Uni, had a few epiphanies and decided to see what would happen if I applied myself, for real.

Thought I'd squash everything and provide the one key lesson I'd choose to pass on at the end.

I post a lot on my Instagram and here, I originally started doing it because I thought if my friends or someone saw someone else drop everything and just focused on themselves; what was actually possible in a short space of time with regard to improvement.
Was a win win because now I'm knee deep in this art thing aha'

I used to just tell them or provide suggestions but I learned the hard way that people just don't want to listen unless you can prove it right then and there or you've 'already made it', whatever that means.

I did eventually and have greatly adapted how I pass on my ideas to people. But I'll share that another time. I wrote a whole essay on that lol.

No not using art just yet though :p

-----
that small typo at the end but noticed too late, alas, all is well.

Happy New Year!
Here we go with being super ambitious again...
The full process! Sometimes its good to try something different!
Wasn't so bad this time stepping outside my comfort zone, got a little lost on the skin admittedly, wasn't really clear on if it 'looked' right.
When that happens the best thing to do is stop, return after an hour...or 12.
Sometimes I'll come after a full day or two, you often become hyper focused on one part of start doing something akin to tunnel vision.

Spent a lot of needless time repainting, not to self, use soft brush too D:

Its fun bringing the sketches to life!
Added some annotations, not too much, wanted to provide some direction maybe?

Was experimenting with the light at the end, Colour Dodge and Multiply are great friends.

I'd love to go through the sketchbooks one day, I put a montage on instagram with all of this years digital artwork, maybe I should bring it here too *thinking thinking*

Went from a swimsuit to a succubus, Instagram is the place to see me doing traditional, I had to stop recording because there is so much mess and it was giving me crazy anxiety feelings with the camera on x_x

I did every now and then do live streams to practice, basically put myself in extremely uncomfortable places, with intent.
I'd go mute though... in a literal sense.

I also went to a cafe a few times, the first time didn't go so well, not gonna lie U.U

Even this took about 100+ tries before I was comfortable recording digitally. Incidentally there is some pretty interesting fan artwork archived on my machine somewhere. Uncomplete of course :D

I also showed my Jan-Dec progress on insta which included 1-261 digital artworks, not including the 20 odd sketchbooks and the 40,000 word document I've been writing o.o

Whoever is reading this, HAVE A GOOD DAY I HOPE ALL IS WELL

More traditional to digital! Anime style!
Theres a mysterious new black cat that has moved into the area, literally o.o
I think this could make a cool shirt design, I should definately do more of this!

Using a brighter colour pallete! Also educating myself in colour theory.
Using the 'sophisticated' colour set, I later learned Photoshop has a whole function to only show Pantone and other colour profiles in the colour selection area.
I should study more for sure...

She was a little different to work with, I really enjoy doing pieces like this one,
but I can see I really need to practice clothing more...

Something a bit different, maybe you could describe this as sculpting?
Aiming for 'different' so had to switch up the outfit last minute D:
Kept all 3 versions because I was equally as satistifed with them!

I am not sure what to say about this, was a weird colour scheme for this, pretty ambitious from the usual though!

I can definately do eyes much better now, so if I do this again I am sure it will be much better!

I think the scale itself was not so great, I loooved how the eyes came out,
seeing it now I should really just practice doing eyes in this style more often!
I asked some friends on Instagram what I should do about her legs, have legs, have leg, or no legs o.o

I wasn't so comfortable using that backdrop photo, I should use a backdrop THEN paint the girl to get the lighting and colours right!
Also experimenting with some ideas, better to try them and remove, then not at all, maybe I can learn someting *thinking face*

Ah in the end, I finished with waaay tooo many layers and folders D:

so... I discovered the Butterfly tool, or Symmetry if you want to be technical;
I just HAD to use it, I always wondered how Mandala's got made, but we both know D:

Alita Battle Angel had a lot of her parts made from what looked like Porcelain o.o

This felt weak, but I learned to do other materials, porcelain is kinda shiney right?

If you pause at the barcode step, and flip the numbers.... ;)

The colour scheme? well, I had been watching a lot of colourful anime, at the time I wanted to add more 'flare' to my work!
RossDraws is a good place for inspo for colour schemes O.O
I never ever ever ever know how any of my artworks will end,
this causes a number of issues but later, soon, I start to play much further ahead,
Using my traditional sketches has proven to be the better option/path.
Maybe if I had a screentablet it would be easier (hand eye coordination + old old tablet currently) not complaining though! I do what I can regardless!

This was kinda peaceful to do, realised its quite effective not thinking so much lol
I think my process is a lot, how would you say, cleaner?

But not clean enough! I broke down some of my favourite artists processes, they go through about 5-8 stages, currently I am only able to go to about 3-4, slowly but surely though...

Compiled some past lessons, being a bit more mindful, zooming in less, well, not zooming in as much; at time it felt like I was still doing the same thing over and over;
however, the method and path I started using was faaaar more efficient, and I was able to get a lot more done, in the same amount of time.

I learned some new tricks present at the end !

Amber? Because it sounded like Ember.
Ember because red colour scheme.

I am well aware of the YouTube apocalypse incoming, but thats why there is an alternative connected, Bitchute.

Aha, slowly slowly I'll hopefully not need the guide lines; or maybe they'll transform?? The circles are great for scaling!

I was very happy with how she turned out; I would make changes to the backdrop definately!

I'll start putting more stuff on the etsy store soon...

Lots of art! Mostly digital!
Things happen, one thing led to another, and here we are.
I try to do something better each piece, hence why I often start differently.
Though I am currently only painting women, I am sure there is something for everyone
You could say, I am pretty resilient
