Revisiting

Colored one from a few weeks ago. I like the other one a bit better, but honestly I did better on this one. I just made new mistakes this time because I got cocky. Turns out, marker is more than happy to bleed across your ink lines.

I was trying to layer some green in her left eye (my right) and it oversaturated and bled onto her face.

I was gonna color it but I’m running into an issue with my prismacolor pens. They smudge something awful with the copics, which means I have to ink after coloring and that does NOT work for me. Need new pens now, apparently.

I’m not super thrilled with the thinner hair strand lines. Definitely need to work on that.

MikeyMegaMega tutorial – short, dark hair

Three stages of completion from another youtube tutorial. I highly recommend checking out his work. I think this is the first tutorial of his that I’ve watched that goes all the way to a finished product, because the rest of the ones I’ve done were mostly focused on structure and proportion. Will definitely be getting into clothing at some point which should do so as well.

MikeyMegaMega tutorial – “gym fit girls”

From another MikeyMegaMega tutorial. Needta be able to draw those heroines. Took me an hour to do the first 15 minutes of this 30 minute video. I’d do the second half but I gotta get up in six hours for work. Tomorrow, I reckon.

Second half will focus on upper body musculature, as opposed to lower.
