As the name implies, there’s an art event on Twitter, the objective is to draw something every day in August and tweet it with the #DrawingAugust hashtag. Figured I’d signal boost it here if anyone else is interested. You can find out more on Dean Lewis’s Twitter.
I’ll be taking part; you can catch any doodles nearer the time (and other nonsense) on @AlkalineCrow. Yay.
This happened purely because I needed something to do in order to kill time/let off steam the other day. The mask is a mix of a goat, a ganges river dolphin and a straptoothed whale… a really obtuse way of representing capricorn. Hoorah.
Minimalist is not boring! This is ace Niko… :)
Thank you very much, good sir! :D
Something I did the other night to let off steam, sort of inspired by Mark Rothko’s abstract stuff from the 40s and the ubiquitous line-and-circle patterns in the Panzer Dragoon games (well, most of the aesthetic in those games was
nicked from inspired by Moebius, he even did concept art and designed a cover for the original one). I didn’t intend for this to be so boring minimalist but everything I tried to make it more interesting failed.
This was unceremoniously shoved under a cupboard door that still needs to be attached to the cupboard it belongs to (probably never going to happen)
I found something from 2007 on the top of the bookshelf a while back, something tells me that when I move out, I’ll get all my stuff together and there’ll be long-forgotten doodles appearing in various nooks and crannies.
Apparently the last postcard I did was back in March… so here’s some psychic mesoamerican birds. Xatu is wildly off-model because… of reasons.
I have been alarmingly productive today (got another work-in-progress on the go).
A spontaneous painting from last night after my internet connection died (the router was working fine for once so obviously the connection itself had to throw a hissy-fit). I decided to try starting with darker values and putting lighter ones in after, rather than the other way round like I normally do. It didn’t end up looking how I wanted it to.
The orange one is an impromptu error with the camera. I think the batteries are on the way out, it always does strange things when that happens.
I’m still open for sketch requests if anyone fancies helping me fill my week; I have two at the moment, which is cool, but not enough to keep me busy for a whole week’s worth of free afternoons.
I haven’t drawn Aitor in ages, couldn’t be arsed finishing the Sea-Wolf and there’s a scientifically accurate rendition of Ainsley because fluffy cats rock. (However, there is not a really tiny cat under all that fur, he’s like one of those Norwegian Forest cats, massive AND hairy)
I also appear to have forgotten how to use pencils. /crey
