I started practising digital art recently. I’ve both tried digital drawing tablets and phone apps. Until now what I’ve found the easiest and most satisfying has been the phone apps. They seem simplified and I am more used to phones after all.
Here I painted an anime character. By doing this digitally I feel like the outcome is a lot more cleaner than traditional art. For this I used a free app called ibisPaint X.
I recently finished this anime drawing. It was very time consuming, mostly because of the detailed hair. It has similarities with a galaxy.
Some days are just bad days, that’s all. You have to experience sadness to know happiness, not every day is going to be a good day, that’s just the way it is!
This is the sketch before coloring. I changed the color of the bow.
This is a coloring-pencil illustration I made. I only used 1 color for this sketch. The original color was green. I used photo editing to change the color saturation, I then acquired the desired color. I chose the color blue because it sustained a more appropriate fitting for the theme. I took the picture while consciously choosing the lighting effect. I think it all came together well applicable as a piece of art.
This is a rose made with watercolors. It was a very relaxing process, but it also took a while. I used many different shades of pink to make this as lively as possible. In the start I used the wet on wet technique. Afterwards the paint was thiccer and I used it to make details with small brushes. I mixed some yellow into the green to make different shades here too.
I did this with watercolors after sketching. I kept myself to a few colors. Also layering for shadowing.
Here I practised some different anime mouths. Anime expressions are known to be over-dramatic and exaggerated.
This is a posture-sketch of a japanese school girl outfit from behind. On the top I did Chinese calligraphy.
Here’s a smol grill from a post it note:D
I drew this with coloring pencils in 2018. It feels so long ago hehe. Happy New year:D
This is the beginning of my Hitler portrait. I start by getting the proportions right. This is one of the most important steps in portrait drawing.
Here I start adding more contrast. I get darker colors by using softer pencils. I layer the color instead of drawing too hard.
These pencils are high quality and works for many types of drawing. My most used pencil is the HB. This is the most basic pencil in here and it works good for most things. Though when I started to add shadowing I went more over to 6B.
Here we see that I added the darkest colors too early and that made it more difficult to blend it with the softer lighter shadows.
When the portrait was done I was very satisfied with the realism. In my opinion it is not hard spotting the person who is drawn. I’ll have to choose this as my best drawn portrait til now. You might find the choice of person to draw very odd, but it was all part of a school project so don’t worry ;P
I just painted this and I’m pretty happy with the fall colors. It was fun and took some time. People say I should sign them, but idk¯\_(ツ)_/¯
