    Been busy working on character designs for a webcomic project I want to start on soon. Here’s one design I’m working on at the moment which is pretty rough but I like the direction that it’s going in. I find character design pretty hard, but it is rewarding when you come up with a design you like.

    Easy and Hard 20 Day Challenge - Day 5Saturated Palette / Muted Palette  
Yep missed another day, so here’s my day 5 entry which is a crazy saturated piece that hurt my eyes colouring, but I love how bright it looks as well.
I had an idea planned for this day to draw something which had a lot of purple and pink in it since those colours look really good saturated. The hardest part was choosing a skin colour which I ended up using a lower value than the rest. Other than the skin which is around 60%, most of the saturation values in this is around the 80-90%, so pretty high.

    Easy and Hard 20 Day Challenge - Day 3Black&White / Color
Well as you can see I missed day 2 in the drawing challenge which was Interior / Exterior. I ended up being busy with real life stuff and didn’t draw at all that day, so here’s my day 3 entry.
For this one I did a fan-art drawing of Arya Stark from Game of Thrones. I’m not sure if it totally looks like her as I have a problem drawing younger looking people, so I guess this could be an older version of her lol

    Easy and Hard 20 Day Challenge - Day 1Portrait / Action Pose
So first entry for the 20 day challenge. This is pretty sketchy, but I kinda like how my sketches look more so than the finished art sometimes.
I chose action pose since poses is something I really do struggle with. I think the main challenge I have with poses is adding anatomy onto the pose I come up with, which sometimes ends up making the drawing look stiff.
Tomorrow is Interior / Exterior. I might try and do both for that day.

    toerning:

WOW YOU GUYS So many people expressed interest in doing a daily draw group thing, made me totally excited, and when I get excited I blow things way out of proportion and therefore I have designed a new one hahahaha.
So the way this works is, each day will have 2 opposing prompts.  You can choose the one that is harder for a challenge, or the one that is easier if you don’t have a lot of time or it’s an off day.  I fully expect to be doing like half easy.  Also this is 20 days because 20 days is as far into the future as I can think without having an anxiety attack also April will happen.
Here are the prompts!
Portrait / Action PoseInterior / ExteriorBlack&White / ColorMachinery / NatureSaturated Palette / Muted Palette           70 / 30 Rule  (Explained at about 5:35- http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-oO2J2ponho)Suit / DressFull Page / VignetteGruesome / SaccharineIndustrial / PastoralLittle Kid / Old PersonOpen Space / Enclosed SpaceLove / HatePretty / UglyPattern / RandomForm / FunctionModern / VintageCluttered / CleanMonstrous / CuteBadass / Innocent
Odds and Ends:
- About once a week I’ll cross off the ones that we’ve done and reblog.
- Feel free to jump in AT ANY TIME! 
- Tag your sketches “Easy and Hard Challenge,” so we all know where to look!!!
- NEVER FEEL BAD about skipping a day!  Just jump on the next one you can fit in.  You can catch up if you want, but momentum is more important, that’s why it’s going to be so great to do this in a group.
OKAY WE START TOMORROW WITH PORTRAIT OR ACTION POSE!

Never done anything like this, but this looks really fun!

    Dota 2 Windranger Fan-Art
Finished this up today. Originally I had planned it to be a landscape piece with wallpaper res in mind, but I liked how it looked when I cropped it down so I changed it to portrait format.
I’m not totally happy with some of the grass, but I like how it looks overall. The butterfly is based on a Monarch butterfly.

    Working on some Windranger Dota2 fan-art. Here’s a screenshot of the progress so far in Photoshop at 100% zoom.
This is based on how my Windranger looks in game.
