More holiday fare!

Here is a simple card I drew as part of a secret santa gift exchange. :)

From your Secret Santa
watercolour + water-soluble pencils + sakura microns
Paper texture is digital! lol!

I realized how much I missed traditional media after doing this painting! One day... one day I'll have time to get back into painting...

Happy holidays!

Hope everyone has a wonderful holiday and best wishes for the new year! :)

Adobe Photoshop CS4 + texture from CGtextures

I was trying out a different style here. It didn't really turn out how I envisioned - I was too torn between the flat style I was going for and the rendering I'm used to. So it ended up in between (which is almost always the worst place to be)... Will try again later!

I have more Christmas card ideas brewing - we'll see if I get a chance to work them up. :)

The pirate bay

Another drawing for a friend (bartering system again)! I couldn't get into this one as much as the last one - have I already exhausted my desire to draw anime things?! :P

I really need to work on life drawing/anatomy (as usual). I was going to reference off PoseManiacs again, but I always fear that it will become a crutch. I need to exercise more discipline and use that website as a learning/practice tool rather than a reference image depot.

Next on the list (that may or may not get done...): a Christmas card. The ideas have been brewing in my head and on paper, but nothing strikes my fancy yet...

Crack that whip! ;)

Ahhh, finally satisfied my anime-drawing craving! Being able to draw loosely and not worry about refining the details was a very welcome change of pace. This is a potential character design for one of my friends who is in the process of developing an RPG. :)

More anime things to come! I do have lingering school commitments I have to attend to over the holidays so I'm trying to procrastinate pump out as many personal pieces as possible now!

I'll retroactively add my final 3D models and screenshots of my 2D animatic, but right now, I don't really want to look at them. ;)
