    Post A Plum Sketchbook

    Gotta start somewhere.

    I'll try and update this a couple times a month. I mostly work in graphite, ink, and copic marker with a little bit of sculpture. What's in here doesn't always make sense.

    Well, I'll start with something that's not too strange. (In my opinion.)

    Just a generic mash of a couple different species. Micron pens. Have at!

    Aw, thanks! I can't believe you looked!! Yeah, I basically just remembered that people usually do threads like this on this site. Fail on me. ;-;

    If you see anything I can improve on, definitely let me know. I'm at the point where I'm trying to figure out if I can have a career as an artist, and right now that means doing a lot of improving in very little time...

    Thanks! It was really tons of fun drawing him. I was sitting in a cafe, people kept looking at me strangely. :/ Haters gonna hate.

    I've gotta ask, though, does anyone have any tips on scanning traditional work? Tricks to minimize color distortion and get it as true to the original as possible? I always find that my scans are just terrible compared to some of the other fine artists on here. Although that might just be the art itself. xD

    He desperately needs fish food, those muscles won't last him through the winter D:

    Badass creature design, and the inking must've taken forever too. Hope to see some more works, you've got a fantastic start.

    Thanks!

    I figured everything deep sea is either really scrawny or really fat, and I went for scrawny because I don't know how to do fat. :<

    Alright, here's something I'll throw in until I can finish something new. It's pretty old, but I've got no good scans of anything....

    Sorry about the bad scan. And the copious angst.

    Haha! xD Yeah.

    I just have nothing worth scanning to scan! I'm slow. ;-;

    I've got something in the works, though. Actually, two or three somethings!

    Going to switch from hotlinking to direct uploading to see if that works better.

    It kind of sucks that my scanner is connected to my other computer. Makes it bothersome to upload things on this one. :/
