Long ago, back when I was still pretending that I understood MtG (I tried, guys. I really tried…), I had an Orzhov deck.
That thing generated ghost and bat tokens like crazy if left unchecked, which was pretty fun when I actually got it to work haha.
Anyway, being a terible player AND being broke af, someone eventually told me that I could just make my own tokens since they were just 1/1 things anyway. I found out that you could even use coins or rocks as tokens so… yay? xDDD
I scrounged up some spare card sleeves, post-its, and a marker, and drew some potato-looking ghosts and bats. They were pretty cute, though. 😀
Anyway, fast forward to 2018, and I’ve accepted that I’m not an MtG-playing kind of person, but I’m still drawing potato-looking everythings, haha.
A friend of mine who is a REALLY into Magic: the Gathering, then asked me to make a custom Drake token for him recently, aaaaand this was the result lol.
I wasn’t sure which border he’d like so I made both. I am quite fond of this derpdrake now. ❤
Still practicing! I think I’m finally getting comfortable with using the stylus. Its square/flat shape has made it a bit difficult, but I think my hand is finally getting accustomed to it.
I’ve also stuck with MediBang Paint, and I like to think I’m faring a bit better.
I don’t know maybe I’m just having a hard time with Procreate because I’m using an older iPad instead of an iPad Pro…?
Anyway, here’s a pastel lolita lady with flowers for ya. It’s still a long way off from what I had in my head, but I guess it’s a start lol.
Okay so… YES. Still struggling to get used to this whole drawing-on-an-iPad thing.
I’m slowly getting accustomed to the grip of the stylus, as well as the weight and feel of the iPad itself. Still a little clunky but yeah… maybe I’m making progress haha
Anyway it’s a long weekend right now, and almost everyone’s on vacation (of course I still have work… because #workfromhomeproblems and all that…)
I figured Overwatch’s villain group should have a day off, too. So here’s Widowmaker, Sombra, and Daddy Reaper having a beach day before going back to base to tackle that pesky problem that is Overwatch haha. xDD
Oh, I DID change one thing, though… I decided that I’m too dumb to use Procreate Procreate is kind of a little heavy to use, so a friend recommended I switch to MediBang Paint. It does feel a lot more like a combination of Photoshop and PaintTool SAI to me, both of which I’m familar with, so it actually felt a little nicer to use. Also they have a lovely library of halftones, backgrounds, and visual references to use so that’s fantastic. ❤
Yes, I’m still doing the whole iPad practice thing. :v
Anyway here’s my junkboi, Overwatch’s Junkrat.
Yes, I am aware I may have bishonen-ified him quite a bit.
Whatevs, mah boi is underappreciated and needs all the love he can get. ❤
(yep, still using Procreate…)
As I mentioned in my previous post, I’ve been setting about trying to get used to working with an iPad, a new stylus, and Apple illustration apps (in this case, Procreate).
How’s my progress so far…?
Ahahahah it’s hard. oTL
I’m not used to an iPad’s interface as I’m a devout PC/Android user, and the Pencil stylus takes some getting used to, as the way it’s shaped is a little strange to grip, in my opinion. I’m still learning how to deal with the edges.
Sigh. Hopefully it will get better T__T
HELLO. YES. I AM INDEED STILL ALIVE. 8D
Ah, sorry I haven’t been posting for like, a full year. I do have this bad habit of starting blogs that I end up never updating. I’m really trying very hard to kick that habit. T__T;;
Anyway posting up some doodles.
I recently decided to get myself a cheap, secondhand iPad 4 and a Pencil by FiftyThree stylus. I can’t afford a new tablet right now, and my old one is REALLY shot at this point, but I’ve been hankering to make digital drawings again.
So yeah, cheap, old iPad it is hahaha. xDD
To be honest, the only other time I’ve ever owned an Apple product before this is maybe… an old Shuffle and a very old iPod Touch. HERP.
For now, here’s me trying to get used to the feel of drawing on an iPad. Everything still feels clunky to me right now, but hopefully it gets better eventually.
(Made with Procreate)
LOL I was bored. =))))
Eh, I needed to practice anyway. XDD In this one, I was trying a different way of coloring. Instead of my usual fill with flats > new layer for shadow 1 > new layer for shadow 2 > new layer for highlights etc etc, I tried coloring using masks. I’ve mentioned before that I’ve become a fan of Yuko Shimizu (NOT the one associated with Hello Kitty…), and her coloring method. … … which I cannot seem to make heads or tails of despite her many blog posts about her process. T___T;;; HELP.
In any case, I might try recoloring this again at some point, using a different method… once I figure out what to do haha :p For now I’m kinda proud of the sheen on the hair. You can see it if you kinda squint a bit…
