The making of some new shell dishes! ✨
So, I saw this sailor moon redraw going round and I had no interest in doing it at first. I’ve done far too many redraws (it’s just easier to not come up with my own idea D:). But I was going through a terrible art block and the thing that seemed to break it was the desire to do this. So there you go.
My art process, feat. My character Zanyth
step 1. Rough sketch
Step 2. Erase pencil markings, and ink
Step 3 (final step). Went over words and colored
And done! :D
Plis reblog❤❤ HELP me 😘
Lotus blossoms are incredible y’know. They struggle through all that mud and then, eventually, they reach the sun.
This is it, this is the final Mermay piece. I know, I seriously fell off and that it isn’t even the last day of May. Sadly, in the end, I just couldn’t keep up. But, I wanted to at least make this piece. It’s been something I’ve wanted to make for a while, and here it finally is. Speed paint and all
Complete Spinosaurus commission & process.
Hey! Here’s what I did to make this fanart. Sorry it’s not a step by step, but I will however talk about the general proces of the whole thing so enjoy!
So my sketches are generally very messy and evasive. Il just try to put a form to my idea and I know I’ll work on it in more details later. It’s really just to put forms and composition and in this case, it’s just a couple so I don’t need to develop it further more.
Then I make a detailed sketch on either photoshop or Sai, but this one has been dran with Paint Tool Sai 2. I can change the proportion easier to make it more accurate and see if I quickly have to edit / change things. For exemple, Medusa’s bread will change a lot.
I then try some ambiance colours and try to decide what atmosphere to choose. The blue and green one would’ve been dark and it wasn’t what I wanted so I choose the orange one (tho on the final result it looks more like I choose the pink one hehe)
Then I colour in more details, add nuances, blush, maybe change some colours, colour lines, etc. I save all the steps. Just in case.
I Then paint over this to make it look better. I “just” paint the same colours but with more attention to it. The coloured sketch is just there to put the colours I want.
I always start with the face, with the skin to be precise. Then I work on the other areas. To me, the faces are the most important in fanart portraits and I love to do them. I try not to put too many details ‘cause you don’t see them from afar. For exemple, you don’t see Medusa’s eyes nuances on the overall drawing.
I’m not so scared of drawing hands but I know I lack of training while painting them. But I kinda like Medusa’s, they’re not as bad as I remember drawing hands several years ago.
I never put pure colours in my drawings. Nothing is really pure black or pure white y’know. Even knowing that, I was actually surprised of how clear Medusas’s snakes were. I’ve put the layer on like 60% and they still look black for the ambiant light.
Since the overall atmosphere is warm and kinda golden, I decided to do the blacks on her more in a purple tone, to also contrast with Maka’s hairs and the general ambience (and imo it looks goes well with her yellow eyes). I also added some light blue in the rosie shadow areas.
I rework the forms alot, like the hair. One of my weak side is my stifness but I kinda like the fresco touch it gives to an illustration (srsly my teachers were so mad with this and they genuenly don’t understand why I do this).
So this is my kinda step by step process and I’m always proud and happy the next two days I draw anything haha!
I LOVE the “skin only” stage of the painting process… sadly I can not scan it since it’s all taped down, but it’s that moment in which I still think I can pull the drawing off like I want, before disasters…
