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. ❤
Sombra is wearing a Baro’t Saya with a Panuelo and Tapis, and is holding typical streetfood/snacks-on-sticks haha. It’s called “kwek-kwek” (orange-battered and deep fried hardboiled quail eggs) and “bananacue” (fried plantains with caramelized sugar).
Zen is wearing a “katipunero”outfit, and sipping juice out of a fresh, opened coconut (if omnics could drink??).
Pharah is in a not-the-usual-red Ifugao outfit, and is holding sunflowers and wearing a traditional feathered headress.
AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA HAVE I MENTIONED HOW MUCH I LOVE THIS GAME AND JUST ABOUT EVERYTHING IN/AROUND/ABOUT IT???
I bought tickets for autographs and photo ops with Sym’s and Sombra’s VAs despite us still kind of recovering from a massive vet bill recently (which is another long story), and my husband didn’t divorce me, so that’s good haha. I really hoped to get tickets to see everyone because who knows when they’ll be able to come back to this country — or if they’d want to — but two is the best we could do. Was also hoping to get a ticket for Zen’s VA for the husband, but it was a no go. 😦 Thankfully, hubby is cool with it, but still… CURSE MY THIN WALLET. T__T;;
Anyway…. Soooooooo…. I bought passes for their March 25 appearance, and I suddenly got it into my head last night (at 1am saturday March 24… whyyyyyyyy…) to make a small tribute artwork for said OW VAs. And this is the result. Herp.
I don’t think I have EVER worked so fast in my life. I was even able to rush to the print shop to have it printed on A4 paper, so yay!
I’m looking forward to giving copies to Sym and Sombra… but yeah. I still don’t know how I’m supposed to hand it over to Pharah and Zen. Hopefully there’s a designated gift table, or maybe I can beg a staff member to hand it to them. I’m crossing my fingers. >__<;;;
Anyway, I copied default poses and drew Zen, Sombra, Pharah (sorry I know I can’t draw hands or feet ;w; ) in some stylized regional traditional costumes. I know I took some liberties in there, and I also know I may have gotten some of pharah’s tattoo symbolisms wrong herp pls don’t lynch me, history enthusiasts… T__T;;
In the meantime, we plan to line up early tomorrow to get our entry badges so maybe I should actually get some sleep haha
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.
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…
