A Return? Hopefully

So according to the last time stamp on this blog, my last post was made in December 2013

It’s now January 2015 so I feel that it’s rather overdue for an update

As a general update on myself? I’m doing pretty well, I’m in the second year of my HND Animal Science program, and during the summer of 2014 I picked up a bit more volunteering work and I’m posted in a Lemur Walkthrough enclosure at a local zoo and it’s been pretty fun. Also funnily enough as part of ‘enrichment’ work on my course we get to do practical work at the same zoo so that’s been interesting. I even got to get up close to a snow leopard.

Drawing wise? I seem to be getting back, slowly. Around the end of December for some reason my urge to draw did come back and more specifically working on drawing with my tablet rather than sketching and scanning. And so the following are a few bits I’ve draw up.

This, had quite a long time before it was finished, I started it September and finished it up in December, this is something for a really cool and talented person I know from Tumblr known as ‘karanan‘ onlineĀ  from the SWTOR fandom (seriously go look at her stuff) the character on the left is a ‘second gen’ swtor character, Axi Revel, a smuggler/sometimes pirate depending on whose definition you’re going on the kid of my Sith Inquisitor, Lyee and the in game ‘Love Interest’ Andronikos Revel, and Nan’s character on the right is one Roscoe Siscovin his Imperial Agent character, and these two have been causing some chaos together fpr a little while and have been having a great time doing so.

Lira, a ‘second generation’ SWTOR character of mine that is the daughter of my smuggler Fira and the in game ‘love interest’ Corso Riggs, who grows up to become a doctor

The one, the only, Hellboy

A little something I drew for a good friend of mine I know through the swtor community on Tumblr. The green guy on the left is my Miralian Jedi Knight, Sylarvi and on the right is my friend’s Human Jedi Knight, Karuki

So hopefully, 2015 continues to be a return to my ‘old self’ when it comes to drawing, we’ll just have to wait and see.

Redrawing

So I ended up with one of those Christopher Hart ‘how to draw books’ and so I decided to make my own take on a design from said book.

This. A supposed ‘warrior queen’. (And I left out the rather trite and honestly rather offensive description, let’s just say it buyed into some very dated sterotypes and also claimed you should never give a female character ‘squat bodybuilder muscles’

This was what I devised. Hopefully she looks more warrior like.

A Dumpage of Sketchiness

Three posts in one week? I’m on a roll here.

Breaking from my usual stuff, I decided to salvage a few doodles out of my college notebooks that I liked. As you can see, I like to doodle ponies.

Random mage guy, might colour in in a way it’s sort of a gender-bend vague redraw of an older image of mine, drawn during a long lunchbreak
Photobucket
Finally, my friend and I have had a long running Naruto project going and yet again I’m revising designs. This is Miyabi Namiko (name translates roughly into Graceful Wave-child) she’s one of the anatognists from our project, I was trying to go for an elegant look with her design. I’m still working on her, but she uses water based jutsu, dancing and those ribbons in her attacks.

I Ate’nt Dead

Okay, Discworld reference out of the way. I’m not I have a few sketches to show off but college has been trying it’s best to consume me as of late.

Random Warrior I drew in college, I accidently made his legs kind of stumpy. Ooops.

Drawing the Days Away

Alright, so it seems that I’ve been doing more than my fair share of college break drawing. So time to show off methinks.
Photobucket
Random warrior, I think he could be a Final Fantasy type character
Photobucket
A mermaid

I don’t really draw kids but I ended up drawing this cute, ragamuffin
Photobucket
I wanted to draw a princess for some odd reason, yay for pretty dresses!
Photobucket
Lunchbreak yesterday caused me to draw this weird ridable beast
And another thing…
Photobucket
Sketch of NightmareMoon. She’s the villian from the new MLP cartoon, Friendship is Magic. The cartoon is worth watching and well she’s a villian but I like her. More ramblings can be found here: On my pony collecting blog

So that’s me done. I should now get back to my assignment work 7 posters on canine body systems, essays on animal welfare organisations and animal nursing stuff won’t write itself.

Crayola Punk and other stuff

Alright, I wrestled with my scanner and have some newish art to show off… I’ve been playing around with using Crayola pencils again, I used to use coloured pencils all the time when I was younger and have recentley rediscovered how much I like using pencil.

‘Crayola Punk’

Last night I was feeling kind of cruddy so in order to cheer myself up I decided to draw a pony

This is a new ‘persona’ of mine, trying to work out a name for her she’s a secondary persona to my other one Clipper

Old sketch floating around of my fursona, Starry hopefully I’ll get around to colouring it.

Oh and I mailed out a pony to a friend of mine on the Arena, I included this as a present for him and decorated the envelope.

That’s all folks,

Well, this made my morning!

Earlier this week, I did something completley new.

I comissioned an artist!

I comissioned PandaJenn on DeviantART for a sketch comission of my character Toby. Isn’t it awesome!
