Brianna I canNOT BELIEVE-
Please and thank you!
Spent today hanging out with thestinakat/thestinakatdraws and got to see Mafia!Blake drawn in person, which was super sweet. I also got to apologize in person for Blake’s ink being a goddamn mess I never expected anyone would want to draw.
Oh yes, you’ve apologized more than enough…
Now I can attest to Ivory truly being a Huge Nerd, as I’m sure they can say the same about me.
Had an awesome day chatting with theivorytowercrumbles (****WINK****) about mafia au, so I wanted to revamp this a bit.
Minor edits, but I think it’s… a little better???????? I had some improvements in mind, but after I finished and placed them side by side I had very mixed feelings hahahaha oh well;;;
Here ya go.
I thought to myself I’d take pics for once, and explain my process—then I realized. There really isn’t a process. Here’s the shitty phone photos I took anyway.
I started with a digital sketch, printed and projected it onto a scrap of cold press paper I found, and just… painted. The only other bit of planning that went into it was the masking around Summer and in Ruby’s eyes.
Watercolor is just layering. Layering and layering and layering. I like to build up color really gradually because I have more control that way.
It doesn’t matter how
The petals scatter now
Every nightmare just discloses
It’s your blood that’s red like roses
And no matter what I do
Nothing ever takes the place of you
I’m… so sorry for the quality…
A lifetime of being the “”” artsy”“” child of the family.
You wouldn’t believe how many sketchbooks and pencil sets I repeatedly received from family members as presents. It got old very fast. But… I guess they had SOME use. Many have been scattered and lost around the house, but all these here are what I have saved.
The pile on the right is sketchbooks I’ve had my entire life, at least all that aren’t lost. Most of the spirals are from middle school and earlier. I started using moleskines in high school, and I know there’s AT LEAST two missing from that pile.
On the left is some unused sketchbooks, but mainly art supplies. Paints, pencils, pastels, markers, etc. Many were also gifted to me. There’s also plenty more scattered throughout the house.
I’m in the mood for traditional media again… Hrmmm…
Accidentally put the steam on the same layer as Hatchy SO LOOKS LIKE THAT’S THE END OF THAT
Still… progressively getting lower and lower quality…
These color palettes seem cute but the truth is some are IMPRACTICAL AS HECK. I almost want to reblog a different color meme.
It’s been so long since I drew Yang… I’m getting rusty… I’m a little disappointed in myself, haha.
