Sugar Skull (WIP Files 11/1/14)

I got done with my NaNo quota for the day early (actually, I went over what I needed), so I took a break and ended up deciding to draw a sugar skull with my watercolor pencils.

A close up so you can see a few more details:

I used Prismacolor watercolor pencils and a watercolor brush with a tip to do this.

Ais’ Terrible Art: Stonework

And now we’re up to date with the latest Ais’ Terrible Art, that I’m crossposting today to tumblr.

This is actually unrelated to ICoS. I bought a program and wanted to test it out by doing a shorter drawing. I decided to try doing an art piece inspired by something I wrote in writing group on April 2, 2012. We were given a randomly generated word and had to write something in 7 minutes based on it. I got the word ‘stonework.’

Here is the video of me drawing it:

This is what I wrote:

And here is the final product on its own:

WIP Files: ART, unrelated, 1/25/14

wip012514

WIP Files 1/25/14. I didn’t do anything the last few days so I thought I should do something today. I thought it would be fun to record a drawing as I did it. Unfortunately I apparently didn’t know how to use the program because for some reason it only recorded the toolbar of Paint lolzzz.

Anyway I make no excuses for why she’s all screwed up proportionately and lopsided other than because, as I keep saying, I really just can’t draw very well lol

This whole thing was done from beginning to end in Paint. She isn’t anyone in particular, I just started randomly drawing whatever came to mind to try out the recording software. I’m really sad it didn’t record 😦 Oh this took idk. About an hour. Mostly it was hard trying to do shading in Paint without harsh lines. I didn’t really succeed in the shading but oh well. By that time I was just having fun with colors.

Next for WIP Files: I need to get some damn writing done this weekend! If I can be on top of it mayhaps I’ll even finish the Project Fierce thing. I hope.

Misc art: sketches

I’ve been going through my old stuff trying to figure out if there’s anything else ICoS-related to share. We started writing the story within the year after I graduated college so a lot of the very early icos bits are mixed in with folders from college. I used to doodle all the time when writing notes. I found a few that I figured I may as well share. The proportions are off/sometimes there are strange designs, etc, but that’s because I was using a pen so I couldn’t erase anything. Then I ran across miscellaneous other stuff and decided to just post it as a random collection.

This first post is all NON-icos stuff. The next one has the random icos stuff I found.
