Yep. On the colouring book bandwagon. No regrets.

[personal profile] pointytilly has been getting me into pretty inks and notebooks, and I received an awesome package of them yesterday. It was Penmas. There is no going back.

Here's some pen doodles! I like ink drawing, it's daunting not being able to erase, but also very... definitive? Something. Photoreffed critters.

Yay! Ink is fun!

A set of Dhaymins, as seen before. I wanted to add more versions of him, but Opencanvas was being a pain so I stuck on some cel shading and called it a day. Also I think I will get Sai once I can get the money together. The lineart functions alone are worth it.

Meanwhile, it is Sunday, and like most Sundays, I find myself falling into one of those mildly depressed states that always seems to happen then. It's not all bad, I ended up declaring Sundays to be Cleaning Day so that I could be productive and feel that I had done something worthwhile, but still, you need other things to do once that's done. So you poke about at bits and pieces, only nothing really clicks in your mind, and somewhere in there there's something about baths and long dark teatimes of the soul and all that stuff. I think there ought to be a Sunday support group. Thursdays? Bah. I never could get the hang of Sundays!

So anyway I decided to sign up for Artslam after all. I'm feeling a little intimidated, even though I did it several years back and I know full well there's no requirement for you to be a pro artist, I can't help but feel a bit small next to everyone else. But I think it's about time I tried reconnecting with that side of me. I've done a lot to find my own sense of community amongst other writers, and I'll always be grateful for it, but I've lost touch with so many artists I used to know. I don't draw as much as I should do.

I guess what's really depressing me right now is I feel like most people I knew who were fellow artists in the past have gone on to go pro. I'm waffling at the idea of at least selling a few things, but I'm plagued by feeling not good enough (though I'm sure everyone feels that way) and having been burned badly the last time I went there. I feel a bit left behind, sitting here drawing for fun. But... that's kind of why I'm doing this, to go back to somewhere I left and want to find the way to again. Blah blah blah...

Yeah, it's Sunday alright.

I want to say my rabbits have a lot of Watership Down influence, but the truth is that movie is now RUINED FOREVER because all I'll ever be able to hear now is the War Doctor and Tom Good being brothers.

(no seriously I love it, VA overlap is fun!)

And I have a hell of a lot of respect for the animators for getting them to have human readable expressions whilst still being rabbits and not cartoon people with bunny ears on because that shit's hard.
