Thanks Coryn!

Yeah, I think I want to go with a blanket-like/oversized scarf type look for that character. The Mortal Engines scarf look I will probably give to another of my characters. Thanks for the refs.

Currently pausing from drawing... my second and more scary exam (Elementary Pedagogy where I have to talk to an examiner) is this Saturday :ohmy: I'll be glad to have it done and over with.

Thanks guys! My report is that - I think it went alright! O_O Certainly a really new experience that strangely was not so nerve-wracking once I'd gotten in the room. My examiners were very nice and I surprised myself by being able to answer pretty much all the questions they asked. The only question I got stumped on was, "What Jazz artists would you recommend to your students?"
...
I-I'm a classical musician...

Haha, but man I hope I passed ^^; I don't really want to do it again lol.


Slowly getting back into art. Took out my old pastels and did a couple of pieces. I might take pictures of them since scanning would probably smudge them.

Some chibis to get back into it!

glad it went well!!!!

lovely chibis, plain and simple but nicely balanced poses.
looking forward to seeing those pastel pieces!
Just in case it helps, I often use flash when taking photos of my art which often looks very close to scan quality. if you get a bright spot in the middle though, stand further back and zoom in on the piece, and the piece will be more evenly lit by the flash.

I'm glad things went well Echo! (For future reference: Duke Ellington is always a solid answer. He did magical things with a piano. Lee Morgan much the same for a trumpet)

@rusinstein Thank you!  ^^

I drew this for Bobby's birthday. It's her character Jr, from her comic series "Royal".
It's also a reference to the crossover story we're working on c:

Thanks guys c:

@Boss The flaming eye or the flaming background? Or the flaming... shadows?

If it's the background, I first put a gradient red-orange background.
Then I used the brush tool and slapped bright yellow/white triangular shapes onto that.
Lastly I used the blur tool and just rubbed the sharp edges away til it looked hazy enough to my liking.

Guys, it's October. Which means Inktober has started!
I almost didn't feel like doing it this year... but I figured, ah screw it. It's either draw something or nothing for the whole month.

Somewhat following the prompts while drawing random characters.

Day 1 - Ring
