:: Arbook video review + Art feature ::

Journal Entry: Tue Nov 18, 2014, 1:13 AM

:iconcuriosityplz: :iconcuriosityplz: :iconcuriosityplz:
Yesterday I made a small experiment with some kind of "Artbook review". Maybe you saw such a things on Youtube. People just take their sketchbooks, for example, leaf through it and add some interesting or funny comments. So I made a test video yesterday, it was about 11 minutes and I was bla-blah about all published books that we with Kimirra have. But then I thought that maybe I should make some kind of short review on our last (most big and most interesting) Artbook "Monochrome passions 2"?
Some of you already have it, but maybe it will be interesting to watch such kind of review? What do you think?

Some works I just need to feature, becasue they are awesome!

:: Where to find inspiration to continue? ::

Journal Entry: Sun Nov 9, 2014, 10:40 AM

Hello guys!

I need your advice, maybe some of you had/have similar situations. It's about project that you started long ago and want to finish it, but have no inspiration?In my case it's about comic project ("Once Upon a time" Chapter 2). I finished first one and I love the result, after I started 2nd chapter and had a break due other projects mostly... I laid it aside because of preparations to doll conventions and told myself "Ok. When you will finish with it, you will come back to comic". Doll convention passed in mid of October, and I was "Here we go! It's gone! You're artistically free, close commissions and continue your work..."

I did so. But now I have some "comic art-block", that means you can draw anything, but comic! Ha-ha! Not funny(
I don't know what to do. Do you ever had such a situation?

I'm back from France, Lyon! And it was very nice trip! If you want you may look at my photos of LDoll festival here.

So I finished commissions, seems that also all prizes that I owed :dance:
Now is time to work on myself, at least I hope to have some inspiration. Half a year I told "When LDoll will pass I start to work on comic", here we go! This 7 finished pages blames me for too long already.

:: Time-consuming 'sketches' ::

Journal Entry: Thu Feb 6, 2014, 7:00 AM

Recently we with Kimir-Ra made few "story-pages" in pencil technique. For me it was combinig few pencil drawings on one shit. I made this before in monochrome technique and now tried pencils.
And personally I was very suprised when I realized how many time I spent on one page :wow: Really it was like 6-8 hours per page O__O something "for whole day" as I said.
 Storypage: I choose you by sionra Storypage: New friend of mine by sionra
 Storypage: Misteria and Sat by Kimir-Ra Storypage: Taho and Adelin by Kimir-Ra
That was strange, becasue usually I spend about a hour for one single fugure and here I thouth it will be faster. Ooops! My mistake! Making composition, thinking about scenary and shading were extremely slow :faint: I hope it will change.
Also I just can't consider it like "sketches" and call it "sketchpage". Because my sketches are much more rough and messy. So I prefer to call it pencil drawing... with all that shadings and details they ae definitely not sketches XD
I think such pages are very good format for storytelling and showing your character personality. What do you think? What kind of drawing you use mostly to tell story of your characters? Illustrations + text? Only texts? Sketchpages? Single sketches?
And here are some examples of sketch/story/love pages from awesome artists from DA.
Give them your love ^^

:: Submit or not submit ::

Journal Entry: Thu Jan 23, 2014, 2:33 AM

Comparing last year, when I worked on "Monochrome passions 2" Artbook and didn't submit a lot of works in my gallery, this year started very productive. So productive that I even have a line of works for submission.
Recently I read the idea "submit 3 works per week otherwise it will be perceived like spam"... And I was like "Omg I'm spaming people!"
And know what? I think it's quite ok :D
I try my best to submit finished works, best sketches (if any) for other staff like sketches and  WIPs you can always find on my Facebook or Tumblr.

I also plan to make few tutorials (yup, finally) and I'm curious about what do you want to know and to learn?
As for me, when I like someone's else works I prefer to see them more often then once per month. If I'm busy my inbox swells by leaps and bounds, but I do my best to look at every new work and leave some feadback.
As you may already noticed I'm more in "original characters theme" then in "fanart", So I watch mostly people who have their original characters or use so enchanted techniques that I can't stop stare at my screen every time they upload something.

Here I want to add little feature of people I watch and who inspires me a lot! :huggle:
Daisis by Nuaran040 - Memories by Scarlett-Aimpyh- Winter - by LosenkoRight at this moment... by Lunareth
Revolution by Charlie-BowaterLady Liberty 01 -cover- by auroreblackcatDragon Eye by CristianaLeone

Also I open a gallery of my every new watcher. Hey-hey! yes, I saw your gallery! Becasue I'm always curious about who watches me and hope to have a nice dialogs, even if biggest part of my old and new watchers prefer stalk in silence.

Anyway, welcome! And here is a little feature of my new watchers:
