Faerie Speed Drawing

Faerie LineART I'm currently working on for either a traditional copic marker coloring or maybe it'll be something for my cousin's upcoming birthday. Not sure yet.


April Sketchbox Review

This is my simple review on the unveiling of Sketchbox for the month of April. This month they celebrate INK. So everything’s that’s included can be used to ink in a drawing, or calligraphy, LineART, you name it.

Now I have an ink-ling that there’s going to be another video with a finished product coming up in the near future ;)

Wisdom Novels® on Patreon

I started writing "Wisdom" back in 2000. Eight revisions later, I realized I had a trilogy going for me. By 2015, I had completed the third novel, published everything, and was steadily working on a second trilogy. At the time, Wisdom Novels® was becoming a standard name to call the series. So after some thought about getting it trademarked, I submitted a request to have it done and waited about a year before it was officially approved. 

So welcome to Wisdom Novels® Patreon!

My main objective is to just finish the series. I have seven books in mind. The first six will comprise of two trilogies, while the seventh is a stand-alone. During the course of writing, I'll be continuously sketching, painting, sculpting and creating music. All of which you guys will get to see as I share spoilers and much, much more!

Hope you enjoy!

Copiic Markers Character Test

For my first test drawing, I use a sketch already drawn out from a previous work. These markers are double sided, but I feel what sells them is the flexible brush tip. I don't even see the need to have a regular marker tip unless you want a wider range of color. But, to me, the marker side feels like I have to scrub the tip into the paper for it to work. 

It's an alcohol-based marker, and they come from Japan. They are a nice quality marker for professional artists. I may look into more colors later on. For right now, though, I'll stick with what I have just because they're expensive (about $7.99 per marker).

LIVEstream Face study

Face Color Test

 After watching a youtube artist demonstrating his coloring methods, which you can watch here:

I decided to try my own version without looking at any references.

I started with the LineART, because I’ve been having trouble getting smooth lines in Photoshop. When it came to painting the face, I wanted to try the technique seen by the artist, but it wasn’t working for me. I continued to add and delete from the face, pushing and pulling lines, until he started look more semi-realistic rather than anime.

Still working with him, but so far I’m pleased with how he’s turned out. This was meant to be the main character from the Wisdom Novels® series, Ketih Larson (aka Master Wisdom).

So here's my little face study: Program used - Photoshop.
