This has been one of my favorite moleskines to date. I've had it since late summer, and we've been through a lot. I like that I can see improvement in it. I like the memories I have associated with the various pictures. I only have a few pages left, so I'm cramming as many sketches as I can to a page.

Recently I've been sketching a lot of portraits of people in my various classes, mostly in my Film Analysis and Creative Writing, since those are the classes where people tend to stay still for the longest amount of time. Also, Most of them are girls. That's because there are a LOT of girls at my school. In some classes, we have about 1 boy to every 6 girls. Most of the boys sit behind me in class, so the girls are the only ones I see. I wish this was different, since I really do need practice at drawing guys but, eh, what can ya do.

Anyway, here's the drawrins:

Mouse girl, white-dreadlocked, not-a-rip-off-of-Kida girl, and a very gaily colored Link.

Got a new Moleskine after finishing up the last one. It's one of the larger, soft covered ones. I like the paper in these much more than the one used for the hardback moleskines simply because it scans better. The only big problem is that it's easy to press down too hard on pencils and all and create impressions on the other side. Oh well.

I didn't feel like scanning everything that I've done in it because some pages just weren't interesting or what not.

Lots of sketches under here, some from the moleskines and others from random pieces of paper. The last 9 (except the very last one) are kind of old, some of them drawn last year.

Think I'm going to color this soon. Looks like a fun experience.

more under here. Some nudity, nothing too scarring. )

Okay, first off, the WIP.

Worked on this during the livestream and decided the skin needed reworking since it didn't really reflect the light too well. Still experimenting with that.

Here the changes are more obvious. I'm trying to fix Zelda's eyes - I think they look better but I need to clean them up a bit.

And here are two other things that I was working on during the stream )

Get guessing! Name and what they're from. Go go go!

Updated with comments because I got distracted and didn't write any the first time :D

This post is nothing but Zelda fanart (and one not-Zelda), since now I can draw Link and Zelda, don't want to stop drawing Link and Zelda, but can't draw Link and Zelda doing normal things. That's why this is a not-safe-for-work/safer-for-work-but-still-nekkid post.

Except this. This is work safe. And the clothes didn't last long. Maybe it's because I can't draw their clothes, as is clearly demonstrated by this picture.

These would be the not safe pics [3] )

These are the safer, cuddlier pics [5] )

Okay, I love my moleskine, but I hate the way the paper scans.

I've been livestreaming for 8 hours.

We watched AMV Hell 3, Akira, Monty Python and the Holy Grail, and a couple episodes of Samurai Jack.

Anyway, here's the picture as it stands now:

Finished the shield and added a rock to make the angle work. Not sure if it fixed anything. Detail shot:

Might have to fix the lighting since it's now angled away from the light, but we'll have to see.
einahsketch: (Default)


Yeeeah so all I worked on for 5 hours was a shield that isn't really even at the right angle.

I'm hoping to fix that tomorrow.

Here's a close up:


Any advice on how to fix this and NOT have to redo the entire thing? I think it can be fixed just by changing most of the perspectiv-y lines, if that makes sense.

... maybe this would be a good time to look for shield replicas and zelda cosplay...

Livestream was a blast. We watched Mean Girls, Starchaser (i.e. The Legend of Zelda Star Wars in Space), and the pilot episode of Samurai Jack. Definitely more entertaining that just music.

Decided to draw some of the men on Dexter while watching the show (and Shaycarl). Dexter is an amazing show! I finished season 2 and I need to order season 3, but it's absolutely fantastic.

Livestream'd for 3 hours, which brings to the total time spent on this image up to around 30 hours.

As you can see, the focus here was mainly fixing Link's anatomy and tweaking the tunic to make it more accurate to the Twilight Princess design, since that's the game that this image is based in. Here's a comparison:

Yup. I think I'll see if I can't make some changes to his arm tomorrow, but one of my goals for this is to add the shield. Yup, the shield. I don't know when I'll ever finish this, but it's a fun experiment.

Oh, and thanks to [livejournal.com profile] milokey  and [livejournal.com profile] footnoodles  for dropping in :3 I appreciated it :D Hope you guys had fun
einahsketch: (you're shitting me)
So my goal was today was to finish the sword, fix some issues I had with Zelda's anatomy, and experiment with lighting/shadows some more. Yeah, we never got to the last part. It took a lot longer to fix Zelda than I expected, and I had to do a lot of recoloring. I eventually finished, but I will probably work on the dress some more. But that's some other time. Here's a comparison:

I haven't fixed the toes yet. I also want to fix the face a bit - the eyes especially.

Here's the image as it stands now:

Just as I redid a lot of Zelda's anatomy, I'm probably going to work on Link some tomorrow. I don't know if I'm going to go quite as over the top with him as I did with Zelda, because to me, it just looks like the torso needs to be shortened. However, I will probably add detail to the tunic, and that may take some time.

Actually, that's another thing. I want to add some designs to Zelda's dress - she's a princess, even her romp-in-the-field clothes have to be somewhat fancy. That's probably going to happen on a later date, though.

And I did get the sword more or less finished, though I still need to work on the gold details on the scabbard.

Now THIS was fun to color.

As always, any help/advice is appreciated. For instance, Zelda's left (our right) arm. It's been bugging the crap out of me. I want to fix it, but I do not want to redo the hand. What do I do?

Posting this early because I am absolutely exhausted. I even took a nap during the livestream because I was scared that I was going to just fall asleep right then and there. I do volunteer work all day tomorrow, so I'm debating whether or not to livestream or even work on this thing until Saturday.
einahsketch: (Default)
I think I worked on this for, like, 6 or 7 hours today.

I started off by adding some grass, but after about half an hour of that, I got really bored. So I decided to add a sword!

Not done, clearly. It's based on the sword that Rusl made in Twilight Princess, the one that Link starts out with. The scabbard was a bitch to do because reference was hard to find, so I took some liberties with the design. Based on the sword, this picture takes place in the Twilight Princess universe of Zelda, so I might be making some major changes to Link's tunic soon. However, I will not for the life of me add chainmail. He's on a date with Zelda - he'll take his sword but he doesn't need a suit of armor. (Link has the Ordon sword because he put the Master Sword back in the stone thing, remember?)

That's my reasoning anyway.

Shut up, I'm not lazy.

The coloring of the sword is based on how it's colored in the official art, but I tried not to reference it to the point of copying the style. I still looks copied... I used a guide that [livejournal.com profile] ikage  recently made to color the metal, so this has been an active learning process.

This picture is coming along nicely, but I feel like it's far from done. I want to add more stuff, like maybe a shield, random floating light things. I also want to add more highlights and maybe re-color Zelda's skin. Seriously, I plan on going full out on this thing, it's so much fun to work on.

And this is why you should join the livestream:

Yeah. What now.

(Guys, if you see any glaring problems with anatomy, lighting, coloring, whatever, please tell me. The sooner I know about it, the sooner I can fix it and the more I learn from this drawing. For instance: do you think the sword is too small? Thank ye)
einahsketch: (Default)

About 8-9 hours of work put in today (so I've currently put around 17 hours into this). Half of that time was spent fixing anatomy/clothing issues that were bugging me and doing general cleanup, and the other half was spent working on a passable background. Still lots of work to do, though. Hope I don't run out of steam before it's done.

Hey guys. I'm doing a livestream of me coloring the recent Zelda/Link sketch I posted earlier today. Feel free to watch :) http://www.livestream.com/orangeinah?t=62285 Oh man, this was a long one. Thank you so much to those of you who stopped by and kept me entertained while I was working and sitting on my ass for hours on end. This is what I accomplished in 7 hours:

Posted the original earlier today. Didn't have to make too many changes to the original lineart, just minimized Zelda' ginormous head and fixed some minimal things that were bugging me. The original images are huge, over 4000x7000 pixels.

Definitely a work in progress. The night version was just for fun, so I'm going to try and finish the day one tomorrow. I'll probably do another stream for that one.

Close ups:

8____8 I did Zelda fan art that was something other than a head shot. Omg.

I like drawing Link with long hair. He just seems like the type that would be too lazy to cut it.
Hopefully it doesn't make him look too feminine...

I was listening to this while making these and a few other sketches:

 I absolutely love this song.
I have other sketches to scan and post, but I wanted to post these two early because I'm, like, ecstatic that I can do fanart of these guys now. I've always had trouble with it, probably because I can never draw guys and I don't ever think I can do Link justice.
einahsketch: (Owl)
Like the title says, thiiis post has some not work safe material. Warning you now. It's mainly nudity or nudity without the naughty bits, but there's one that's more sexual, but with clothes. Yeah, try to make sense of that.

But let's start with the worksafe stuff, yeah?

Click me, please! )

In real life news, I've been playing a lot of games lately. Half Life 2, Red Dead Redemption, Portal (which I beat), very fun but I got motion sickness a few times, On the Rain-Slick Precipice of Darkness (the Penny Arcade Game), and also getting back into Fallout 3 and Oblivion, though Oblivion is kind of lame now. Quick reviews - Half Life is scary because I've always hated Ravenholm; Red Dead is ridiculously fun, like a movie, and although John Marsten is a very contradictory character in personality, I can't help but love 'im - he's got that cowboy charm; Portal was fun, I just wish I hadn't known the twists, but I played it far too late in the first place; On the Rain-slick blahdyblah is entertaining but I haven't been able to play it recently; still love Fallout 3; Oblivion is meh.

Okay. Other than that, I've started doing volunteer work at the Children's Hospital which is fun but also takes a chunk of my summer - two 3-hour days and one 7-hour day a week. I work with puppets, monitor a playroom, and help keep the toy stores organized. I thought I would enjoy puppets the most, but the kids I'm working with really don't have a heart for it, and yeah, what we do is silly, but the kids really love it, and at that point, it's not about us. The toy store is just plain boring, but it's the kind of monotonous job that allows you to get some thinking done. So far the play room seems to be the most promising place. There was only one kid that was in there for a while with us today and I drew her a portrait :D Very simple, done with some kind of... dot ... paint... stick thing, but she seemed to like it.

Aaand one last note, I will be out of town next week on a vacation to a place I have already been with people I have already been there with. Nothing will have changed there and so I don't know why we're going again, but we are. And I'm going to miss E3 because of it.

First papercraft of the summer, and definitely not last!

Video freezes every so often, and I wish I had better pictures of the final product, but my camera is currently out of commission. The end result is sloppy and jagged, but I'm still learning how to make these things properly and without making a mess, so go easy on me?
einahsketch: (OMNOMBOOBIE)
Colored a sketch that was sitting in my moleskine. Sketch post to come when I'm in the mood.

I love drawing Gengars so much xD Gamete is one of my strongest pokemon, special attack wise. He kicks ass.

Ignore the dress hem, ignore the legs, ignore the other weird problems, and you'll be good.

I'm going to go download some music.

Also, I always forget to say this, but often when I'm coloring something, I'm listening to [livejournal.com profile] made_of_fail_pc , a fantastic podcast. This recent episode was no exception - I'm no fan off horror but I really enjoyed listening to everyone on the show talk about the Nightmare on Elmstreet remake. Check it out!

Been working on this for the last 4 hours or so, just listening to Nostalgia Critic videos. I like some parts of it, don't like others, but it was fun to do something digital for the first time in a really really long time. I will say that her cheeks bother me - one seems bigger than the other. Meh.

... I should have been studying for a test tomorrow. It's a big one, depending on who you are. For me, I feel like it's something that I can benefit from if I do well on it, but if I don't do well, I don't think it will hurt me too much. School has been ridiculous lately, and that can mainly be attributed to my batshit insane theater class. I don't even understand waht's happening in there any more, and frankly, I don't care. Two more performances and then I'm out of that class for good.
