Let’s Play Video Games!

Its Friday! So you know what that means? FAN ART. Sorry about the iPhone photo, I didn’t feel like getting the scanner out for one picture.

bmo!

I love BMO. Such a cute fun character.
Now I think I’m going to take BMO’s advice and go play some games.

Fan Art Friday!

Is that a thing? Maybe it should be. I guess I should probably draw some more then so I can make it a thing. I could also probably track down some childhood drawings to share as well. I used to always draw my favourite cartoons. It hasn’t changed much.

gir
Gir! Probably one of my favourite characters ever. Why yes I did used to wear Emily the Strange, Paul Frank and rainbow plastic beads all the time when I was younger. I actually went to the mall to shop though.

Jhonen Vasquez has a great style. I’d love to see Johnny the Homicidal Maniac animated (yeah yeah I know I was the stereotypical 90’s/2000’s emo kid).

The watercolours from the next page bled through and that kind of bugs me. I need to stop worrying about this so much. Its just my visual diary, I need to learn to enjoy the little mistakes.

I’m not really a big Pokemon fan. They’re fun to draw though. I also wanted to play with my rainbow pencil.

Lumpy Space Princess is another character I really love. Adventure Time is super rad. I love the colours and stories and how can a cartoon be so sad sometimes? Ice King is always breaking my heart.

As you can see I found a different kind of rainbow pencil. Its got better colours, but its softer so I don’t enjoy drawing with it as much.

Hope you’re all keeping cool. I’m lucky that it doesn’t get too hot in my unit (we don’t have aircon) but I think I might need to have an ice block or two later.

Spooks.

“In traditional belief and fiction, a ghost (sometimes known as a spectre (British English) or specter (American English), phantom, apparition or spook) is the soul or spirit of a dead person or animal that can appear, in visible form or other manifestation, to the living.” (wikipedia)

Pitt pens on paper. Or should I say ink? Technically it is india ink.

Happy New Year!

Well 2014 is almost over and I’ve finally gotten around to doing some scanning. I have so much I’m not even scanning everything today. I’m not even sure what kind of order or how or what I should share.

I’m not going to do an overview of the year, instead I’m going to share a bunch of skulls because I think besides naked people thats what I made the most art of this year. I pretty much drew the same skull over and over again.

Playing around with watercolour and charcoal.

Pencil was probably my medium of choice for 2014.

loserskull

I bought some pitt pens a little while ago and they’re pretty much my new favourite thing.

rainbowskull

I mean besides drawing skulls. Though this rainbow pencil is pretty cool too.

And sometimes I’m funny. ha. Or I try to be.

Ok thats enough for now. I’ve got to get dressed to go to a New Year’s Eve party.

Drawlloween Week One

I really should be finishing off the last of my assignments and artworks for my folio but instead I’ve been taking part in the Drawlloween challenge on instagram. A lot of people also seem to be doing it as Inktober as well, but since I’ve been enjoying my coloured pencils so much lately I’ve been drawing with them instead.

I’ve even fallen a little behind with Drawlloween, but here enjoy the first weeks worth of pictures that I’ve just scanned up while scanning up some art for a presentation I have due in tomorrow.

Alright I best get back to working on that presentation.

Lizzy’s Portrait

This is one of my favourite pieces that I’ve done for my visual art diary. We were given directions  to make several collages in the cubist style that we had been using in class. I was looking around my house for inspiration and found Lizzy crouched down under the coffee table. I quickly sketched her from 3 different angles before she moved, but not before several dirty looks were shot my way. It’s Lizzy’s style.

catcollage

This is the only collage I have finished so far. Next week is mid semester break and I plan to finish off my artworks. It should be really fun.

Drawing with Ink

I finally got around to scanning these drawings from just over a month ago. We were instructed to draw some natural objects using ink. I don’t really have a lot to say about these, I’ll just let the pictures speak for themselves.

featherink

Notice the little paw and claw prints? My cat decided she’d help with this one.  Feathers drawn with ink using feathers.

 

inkandpapertree

This was a tree that was in bloom near my bus stop. I tried my best to capture the pink blossoms.

 

shellsink

And the little cat prints return on this one as well. Lizzy just wants to make art too.

I like ink, its unpredictable and fun to work with because of that.
