Continuing the Guardians of the Galaxy kick here- I got a few comics for my birthday, so I’ve started drawing Rocket, Groot, and now Gamora from them! This one’s rougher than my others, mostly because I didn’t have time to clean it up. But I did have time to give her green hair. That was important.
Haven’t drawn lately because I’ve recently been dragged back down the After Effects rabbit hole- another IC alum just finished a short film and has recruited me for the end credits sequence! So I’ve been heading over to Photoshop’s neighbor on my toolbar and re-learning things in AE.
The style is very film noir, based mainly off The Big Sleep. I don’t have any WIP to show you yet, but here are a few of the reference photos I’ve been working off of, in case you want a sneak peek of the style!
Birthday weekend was excellent, but alas, no drawing got done- except for today! Today’s my birthday, so I thought I’d wrap up the festivities by drawing everyone’s favorite boomerang wielder, Sokka.
and with the color layer hidden:
His face gave me more trouble than Azula’s (I think my overall face proportions were off), but overall, I’m ok with how it turned out.
My birthday’s Monday, and by Monday, I mean my birthday lasts this entire weekend- starting tonight. Listened to the Guardians of the Galaxy soundtrack? Check. Made a peanut butter chocolate mousse cake for myself? Check. Drawn Azula, a firebender from Avatar?
DOUBLE CRISS CROSS CHECK THAT BOX.
I liked this one so much, I even cleaned it up a bit and colored it! I’m still working out a few kinks in coloring drawings (mainly, figuring out why things look ok on my Cintiq and then seeing uncolored spots when I drag the image onto my laptop monitor). But I’m very happy with how this turned out. Happy birthday to me!
No knees and toes, actually, just hands and faces today. Feeling under the weather, so two drawings (and a failed one) instead of three or four. Tried drawing Azula, definitely failed- will try again tomorrow!
Not a big fan of the hand one, but the photo I was using as reference had extremely flat lighting, and I swear the longer I looked at her fingers, the weirder they got. I blame it on the witchy fingers.
