    Default Thanqol Learns To Draw Six: Stealing Time

    'Sup. Thanqol here. Drawing more pictures.

    Some days are so full the only drawing you get done is a brief weird face in the corner of your notebook at 11:40 at night. There have been more of those days than the other kind recently. So I'm going to start trying to steal more time.

    Okay, so vacation has finally - finally - begun. It's a full on six week staycation so I'm hoping to do a lot more digital art than I have been; current objective is at least an hour a day spent painting. We shall see how it goes!

    The year five video is currently delayed because I don't actually have any video generation software on this machine. Hmm!

    I'm well aware that there are three different, mutually exclusive, continuities involved. I don't care, because it still sounds awesome.
    Day 1830: Well...

    This sounds basically like a screaming mass of hair and bulging muscles. So that's what I drew.

    Day 1831: Resync

    I don't know if I'm just rusty or if I was never good to begin with, but it's really weird to be working in colour again.

    That's an interesting color shirt. I can't decide if it's pink or lavender.

    I'd say lavender, since it closely matches a lavender dress shirt I have.

    I'd say lavender too. This site calls it "Pale, light grayish purple", but I suppose that's a clunky synonym for lavender. It might be clearer that it's lavender and not pink when it's bigger, too.

    I actually have a shirt that looks that colour, only it's not because it's a white shirt with purple lines but it tricks the eye into thinking it's lavender.

    Day 1833: Ideal

    Okay, this is MUCH better, the sketching technique I've been trying out is finally clicking. Character is Idelle, fabulous mercenary turned zombie knight superstar. Now just need to add enough colours to make her look like a murderous clown.

    Thanks man. Now to clownsuit it up

    Day 1835: In Virtum

    Man, bad habits are hard to break. I'm really having to fight against an incredibly powerful procrastination urge whenever I try and art. It's trying to shift my habits back after so long casual bus-sketching that if I wasn't mythically oathsworn to a picture every day I can totally see myself falling off the wagon.

    Anyway, colour flats. I'm looking to do some experiments with/clean up that linework to see if I can reverse engineer this piece which strikes me as both impressive and achieveable. You can sort of see where I started on this around the helmet but I frankly have no idea what I'm doing so the course is slow and processes are heaps shonkey. Hopefully I'll figure it out.

    95% of the time it's dry but occasionally we get what Terry Pratchett called 'The Wet'.

    If it bothers you, she doesn't appear to have breasts, and looks a bit like a male.

    Oh man. That... fortnight did not go as planned. House is clear. I'm going to get back into the swing of things soon. But damn, between that and a convention I've just been wrecked.

    But. Time ticks on. This is a marathon, not a sprint. Just gotta keep the willpower strong.

    Anyway, with the completion of another sketchbook I decided to finally get around to uploading a bunch of my pen and paper sketches. This is not a complete showing of everything I've been doing during the non-digital upload days, and a fair few of my favourite pieces I give to my unwitting models, but it's sort of representative.

    Here's the album link. 100% of these are accurately drawn from life on my way to and from work.

    Neat. I just like the outfit as you drew it. Feels like it would be seen in Flash Gordon somewhere. That's a great movie, so cheesy in a fun way.

    Gonna stick with ponies for a bit.

    Messing around with Luminark's design because I really like it. I think Early Modern Wizard Pony is a really excellent style and his personality's turning out to be pretty fun in my head too.

    Well! There are a lot of sketchbook pages I didn't post because it's just endless serieses of sketchy hands in 2H but I really got to thank you for suggesting it, if there's one thing I can do on the bus it's stare at people's hands. I'm getting a lot of practice drawing people holding phones - which is actually pretty good because there are a fair few hand gestures that go into that that aren't 'generic closed/open hand'.

    I'm getting to the stage where I'm beginning to develop some visual shorthands which is cool but I'm not fully there yet. Hands are hard.

    Looks good. Managed to get a tall-skinny look down.

    Looking at the "Hat Thingy" made me think about guard uniforms and how they lack a visor to protect the face.

    Thanks! I want to play with someone who variates between sophisticated and nervous, I think that's going to be fun from a design perspective.

    Day 1851: Can't Lie

    Just some flats, thinking about mane/tail combinations. Part of me wants to give him a really undignified poofy Pinkie Pie style mane and tail which is why he hides it below the hat thingy. Also not 100% on the butt symbol.
