Here is a portrait of my friend. I kind of rushed it because I planned it to be my last post of the year. I guess I need to practice more on portraits. My next portrait would be a bit better than this one I suppose. Anyways, Happy New Year Everybody! Cheers!
Have a happy hot holidays everybody! I have got this image drawn up on paper since last year. I never had the time to put it up last year so I thought this year would be the right time to compensate my inactivity. Sorry if its a bit sloppy and rough around the edges. I’m still not good at drawing the lower half of a body. lol. Anyways, I will put some W.I.P’s on my next work.
It’s been 5 months since my last post. I’m terribly sorry for that. So many things happened in these past months. My Hard drive gave up on me, school, and Dota2. I’ll complete the 12th excel art when I find the file (It got lost when my hard drive got corrupted T_T). I’ll probably post one or more works but it will take longer though because of school. I think the contours on the pumpkin head is a bit shallow. It was hard to put the candle light effect inside the shape. I couldn’t find a decent tombstone design so I just put up what came in my head and just drew it. Anyway, here it is. My Halloween Post. 😀
Guys! Sorry for the super late post! I failed to post it on Sunday because my computer had a breakdown! The PSU failed on me. I borrowed one from a friend and asked one for free from my generous aunt! Thankfully she agreed and I got a free PSU from her plus a hard drive! I’m not sure whether I can complete this by the end of the week because I’m afraid that the PSU will also fail me. So I need to limit my usage from 13 hours to….hmmmm….half? maybe? Anyways, here it is. It’s a bit sloppy since I had no practice for a long time.
Hey guys! I’m back! I you were wondering why was I out for so long, here’s my story:
In my subject, it was required for us to get an examination for MOS(Microsoft Office Specialist). I immediately thought of Excel, since Microsoft Excel was the office tool that I was most exposed to since I do my drawings there.
(The next few paragraphs were SLIGHTLY exaggerated)
But then, it struck me! I don’t actually know anything on Excel excepts for shape manipulation! How am I going to pass?! That is the time I packed my bags and journeyed to the Himalayas to improve my endurance and skill on Excel. I endured cold winter nights and fended off Snow Leopards as well as Wights for 45 days and 45 nights.
In my explorations in the Himalayas, I met a wildling girl named Emma. Emma accompanied me in my skills training and kept me warm for the night. I had a good time with her and I was motivated in my training.
After our heartfelt goodbyes, I left Emma and went back to my country to take the exam. After 50 minutes of examination, I got the results! Sadly, I failed the exam.
Nah….Just kidding. I passed it! but BARELY! I got 850 out of 1000! I almost shit my pants there. Anyways, here’s the fruit of my labor.
P.S. Ill post a completed work or a W.I.P of it next week. Sorry for the wait.
Finally! After a month of doing this I finally completed it! Just in time for my friends birthday! I had a little trouble with both their hairs though. It’s hard on Hayley because I don’t know which color I should put it. Hayley’s hair in this pic is a combination of red, red-orange, and yellow(bits of it). I just did some shading and applying lighter colors with transparency. My friend’s hair is pure black and It’s hard to display on how to put sheen on it. I just gave up and measured the right amount of transparency on it. The font is custom. Just google “riot font” and you’ll probably see it on the first link. 😀 I hope you guys like it and sorry for the long wait.
Her birthday is nearing! Will I finish it in time? I think I’m done with the the first face. I’m thinking whether to spruce it up more. The left eye is done, but I think it is too dark. I tried to fix it by darkening the right a bit more. What do you guys think?
I also finished the mouth. That part was the hardest for me because of the shading in the tongue and lips. It’s not perfect but that will do. The teeth was also hard because I need to choose the right set of colors to shade it perfectly. I put on orange accent 6 darker 25% and gray and heightened their transparency. I’ll add more shading on the lips if it requires it.
I will soon start on the next face then add hair and then their clothes. My next post will be on the 1st day of March 2013. I hope she’ll like it. :))
