30 Day Digital Sketch Challenge: Day 11

Day 11 of the Digital Sketch Challenge. Let me know when the countdown thing starts to get annoying, because I have to do this for a total of 30 days.

This is Kaitlin, one of my girls in a current story I’m working on. I won’t say much about the story because it’s actually in revision mode at this time, but I love the characters and the situational comedy that springs from them.

Unfortunately, at the moment, Kaitlin doesn’t seem too funny. In fact, she seems rather panicked…

30 Day Digital Sketch Challenge: Day 10

Day 10 of the Digital Sketch Challenge! and I’m back to my original characters!

This is Roxy. I drew her before, around Day…8, I think? I can’t remember. I’m bad at that.

I wanted her to pose in a way that reflected her as a character, and she IS a strong, independent woman…who has “DFTBA” tattooed on her arm (Ok, part of the reason I did this pose was to show off the tattoo a little). It stands for “Don’t Forget to be Awesome”, and is the catchphrase/creed of Nerdfighters. If you don’t know who they are, go and google it because I don’t believe you.

I’m currently working with her on a short story, and I love how she’s developing! She’s turning out to be very thoughtful and very mature, especially around the topic of death (well, she would have to be, since she had cancer).

However, I hope that my next sketches will have more dynamic poses for my characters. I’m not sure if I want to start drawing full-on action yet, but I’d like to get them slightly more active and…asymmetrical.

30 Day Digital Sketch Challenge No.9: Tack (again)

Day 9 of the Digital Sketch Challenge, and I’m back to Tack.

I was actually in a bit of a rush to make this, because I want to get back to work on my comic I’m making for my Advanced Painting class. I feel bad for that, but hopefully the quality hasn’t suffered because of it.

30 Day Digital Sketch Challenge: Day 7

Day 7 of the Digital Sketch Challenge, and I’m dipping into another fandom. What the hell?

First Tack, and now Cell. This sketch challenge had gone from adorable to face-slappingly smug in 24 hours.

But yes, I’m a fangirl of Dragonball Kai. To those of you who say you prefer DBZ over DB: Kai, I say you cannot appreciate a series that actually sticks closely to its source material and you like 20-minute-long screaming FAR too much.

Don’t get me wrong! DBZ has its good points, but it’s primarily great material for riffing it Mystery-Science-Theater-3000-style.

As for this sketch, I actually really like the loose but bold lines and the shading I used. But what do you folks think? Let me know in the comments!

The fascinating character of Cell belongs to Akira Toriyama, Toei Animation, and FUNImation. I don’t own him.
