|| I'm a young adult in college, majoring in studio art, with a specific interest in illustration. I'm a writer and an artist. I make fanart and fanfics as well as original stuff. ||

my main fandom is primeval, but i love so many things!

Altered the sketch slightly. Started painting!

New sketch. I like it, but… Idk.

I can paint in a drawing class, right? This is a silly thing to be anxious about argh

Darkening pencil lines.

It turned out less cartoony on big paper idk why

And the current questions I have are :
1) should I keep the post it’s in the background that are on the right, or get rid of them and only have them on the left in an asymmetrical thingz or should I leave a few unlinked ones on the right?

2) should I paint the whole thing, or only paint the background and ink me, or the other way around, or only ink the whole thing?

Sketch on the larger paper. Nerve wracking few moments there heh

When I paint I almost always do two things:

get the paint all over myself, often by testing colors on my skin but sometimes I just get clumsy and messy

And/or get the paint all over the scrap paper, paper towel, cardboard under the artwork, or whatever else is nearby and paper-ish, because of testing colors.

I mostly do the second when I can’t test colors on myself, but I still do test them on scraps anyway heh

I would love anyone who writes a comment in their tags of a reblog for forever

(Like, 27+ notes is great, but I wanna know what you guys think of it ^^; )

Probably going to lighten the blue, it’s too dark for a post it color.

Tony’s getting better at sneaking up on Loki, which is good because his stubborn boyfriend doesn’t seem to like to pose for photos.
(And well, Loki mostly only pretends to hate the moments when Tony slings an arm or two possessively over him from behind and then clicks the camera button on his phone instead of whatever Loki thought he might be up to. He doesn’t mind too much, honest.)

G-d realistic shading for fabrics and skin and everything else takes so much effort I want to sleep forever aehh
*pteranodon screech* 
fricking back muscles 
all the fucking fabric im never drawing fabric again
(And yes, Tony’s phone’s case is iron man themed. No, he didn’t design it specially, he literally went out and bought the damn thing himself because he wanted his own merch.)

Post-its
A digital sketch for my next piece for my drawing 3 class. Still based on ‘a life-changing moment’, which is medical-related in a positive way, but that also leaves me writing notes on post-its to myself/parentals every two weeks as reminders. So there’s a lot of post-its in our recycling and littered around counter tops, and when I was sketching two weeks ago I really liked this idea I had of interlocking post-its, where the inside paper has been cut out sorta… so I’m planning on maybe making a bigger hand-done version of this, but I wanted to test it out digitally, first. :) I made them a lot of different colors, I’m thinking the hand-done painting I’ll probably use a slightly more sedate palette, and multiples of the same colors, and I’ll probably also shade them somewhat. I really like this, though;.
