Here's a piece to go with subdued.
i swear this whole glasses thing is an addiction (i blame a certain somebody for fueling this). But i'm not sure how i feel about this one, i may tweak it some more later...

My first CG in a while! I wasn't going to draw another glasses girl, but this one is dedicated to a friend who's feeling a bit down today. o:
I didn't want to use too much contrast in this one; It took a lot of restraint to not make that nose even shinier! I think in the back of my mind I wanted a more hazy look...

SAI 1.01 + Photoshop CS2
This piece will be included in the upcoming UDON Darkstalkers Tribute artbook. It is such a crazy honour to be a part of this project! The artbook contains works from many incredible artists, including Adam Hughes, Jo Chen, and my friend Dan Howard, all based on the Darkstalkers characters.
Pick up your copy of the artbook on the UDON website!! I'm so excited to get mine! :D

watercolour, water-soluble crayons + brown Col-Erase pencil on paper, 8.5x11"
This one's for my dad! Golf is one of his many hobbies...
I initially wanted to match the style/colours of my Mother's Day card but decided to give this painting a yellowish tint/aging paper look instead. :)

black ballpoint pen + white china marker + red Col-Erase pencil on kraft paper, ~8.5x11"
Just something I did to loosen up a bit today. Ballpoint pen is probably my favourite tool. Though the permanence is a little unnerving at times, it's what helps loosen me up.
I didn't intend on draw another girl with glasses; but as she shaped up, she reminded me of those intellectual, sophisticated female types in video games that seem to always have glasses, hair neatly pulled to one side, and oversized breasts. 8D;;;

brown col-erase on paper, 11x14"
(another crummy photograph)
I've always had this problem of not being able to draw consistently, so I decided to try to draw a second image in the same style as "ibis". But this didn't work out so well. This girl looks so awkward, forced, and contrived. It didn't help that I grew tired of it and threw in a half-assed background... lol ;-;
So, in my quest to battle my inability to draw in a consistent style, my hope is to develop a series of drawings that follow the same style and theme. Perhaps I'll give this hair thing one more try...

brown Col-Erase pencil on paper, 11x14"
(The brown tinge and graininess resulted from my camera, but I rather like the effect and didn't bother changing camera settings. I will scan it properly eventually... so lazy now that my sketchbook is larger than my scanner...)
I think this drawing was the product of me shopping around for new glasses and looking on the Rasysa hairstyles website for a new hairstyle. :P
A piece done for myself?? That's rare nowadays, but I really need to motivate myself to draw more before September rolls around. Do kick me please. :D
