Succulent WIP 2
Getting there. Needs more defining, but I think it's doing ok so far. I jumped around quite a bit with the coloring.

Cumulus Congestus
Took awhile, but I think I'm satisfied with the result. I followed yuumei's 2nd cloud tutorial for this one. Used a few splatter brushes and toggled them quite a bit to get the desired texture. And then I used some blending modes and gradients for the color.

Overall, I'm pretty impressed with the way this turned out. :D

Succulent WIP
My current project. It's a practice image of the one I'm planning on putting on canvas. Coloring a succulent on tracing paper with regular colored pencils to get a feel of how the colors can turn out. Starting to go over it with green and eventually more colors added to the mix. A few things need some fixing and defining still. Hopefully I'll get around to finishing it by the middle of next week.

I've been experimenting some. Going back to traditional art—planning to paint on a canvas for my mother's room. First time in awhile I've done anything like that. ^^; I'm so nervous, I'm sketching it out on a sheet of tracing paper! I've even decided to color it out too, just to see if the colors work out. I doubt I'll get those exact colors with acrylic paints, but it's worth doing a beta to see how it could end up, I guess. ¯\(°_o)/¯  

Hopefully I actually start putting paint on that canvas thingy...

In other news, I've also been sketching a few things on the one decent digital art program I have (that isn't fancy-pants Photoshop). I am trying to paint some clouds (based on a nice tutorial I found a long time ago and swore I would try it out) and mess around with some of the color blending modes. These things are blowing my mind! Digital drawing is pretty great~but it's so challenging! ;_; I can't seem to make up my mind on what brushes to use, the brush library is an oyster of possibilities. I spend so much time toggling the settings, I barely even get to put pen on canvas. Aggghh, I bet it's just the perfectionist in me being over the top as always. I really got to give that a break and let the messy side of me loose. =_=

I make arts sometimes. And I like admiring other people's arts.

My favorite past times are making art, reading, taking pictures, making music, collecting miniature things, and watching shows and anime on Netflix. :D

I'm a student, so if I disappear for months on end, worry not, I'm alive (but probably brain dead =_= ).
