Gallery – 100 Days of Art Practice Days 11-20


Day 11: Finished my first sketchbook! Then started a new one and practiced some Ernest and Celestine style.

Day 12: Watercolor of one of the Ernest and Celestine drawings. It’s easy to mess up an ink drawing with sloppy watercoloring! Then a freehand drawing of Big Ben, our giant old stuffed bear. This was my first real freehand. I liked it.

Also, one ink practice of the game Hollow Knight, and one of my old Bugsby.net games, Roshambo.

Day 13: A lot of time spent working on the first page of the Earthbound comic, doing practice drawings of town, doodads and characters, and doing some photoshop layout.

Oh! And I finished the page!

Day 14: Can’t remember what I did. All I have is this bizarre remnant:

Day 15: Avatar practice drawings. I really like the earth bender, though since Jin pointed out that his arms and legs are shrimpy relative to his head, I want to draw a much taller Sokka standing behind him, arms crossed, unimpressed.

Day 16: Hands from a reference. Everyone was right. Hands are so hard. But I had so much fun drawing this.

Day 17: Without setting out to do it, I drew something controversial. Also, Jeremy Clarkson.

Day 18: First tests of the grey pen. Gosh, she looks scary. The perspective drawing is nice though.

Day 19: Discovered Chris Chatterton, whose style I think I would like to copy.

Day 20: I experimented with quickly adding art assets to games, from a hotel room with no tablet or scanner. This was also a good test of Honey. I got the following proof of concept off the ground with about forty minutes of art, ten minutes of photoshop, and twenty minutes of programming.

The background is https://watercolorpainting.com/staging/wp-content/uploads/2016/11/wispy-clouds-featured-image.jpg, and the lovely music is from my friend WhiteShip, a part of the failed game that led to Honey and something I really hope to use in future games.

Day 1: Just trying out some styles (Tom Gauld, Zach Weinersmith, Stanley von Medvey) to see how well they fit with my own style.

Day 2: More style exploration. The first picture is Spaceman Spiff with a bit of Aaron Burr.

The second picture is just… weird. I started off by free-handing someone’s space station drawing, then decided it was a hat, then went to photoshop and traced it, then ended up with this:

Day 3: Bunch of ink drawings from reference pictures. The face I tried drawing upside down.

Day 4: More ink drawings from reference pictures. Three of them are from the series “Usagi Drop”. I’m going to try to water color the last one.

Day 5: Sure enough, I did the watercolor. The other stuff is freehand doodling.

Day 6: These ones were my own ideas. First one is my first self portrait. I used references for the pie and the pool float.

Day 7: Might as well start a comic!

Day 8: Bit more comic practice. These are all from Earthbound.

Day 9: Doodles

Day 10: More Doodles.

And that’s the first ten days!
