Timelapse Tuesday #24: Playful Magpie

No prints but I do have watercolor art commission slots available!

Art Motivation

Hi everyone and welcome back to Timelapse Tuesday! This week’s topic came about while planning for a mixed media art piece and to encourage practice with materials you might have bought but never used. I understand how much an investment art making can be and sometimes we buy something we believe so precious that we don’t dare use it. I’m very much like that most of the time, especially with my watercolors and oils.

At first, I only used the student grade materials and didn’t try out anything beyond that, even though I had perfectly good artist’s grade materials just sitting in storage looking pretty. The main problem with this mindset is if I never practiced with the better supplies, I would never understand how they actually worked so I would be wasting more money just buying what I thought I could work instead of just doing it! Eventually I got over that fear of “wasting” my supplies when I changed my mindset to “Any art made is progress” and it’s helped me keep a positive outlook towards my own process.

I do hope this video helps you get over that doubt and gets you motivated to create more!

Comic Update 1.1.43!

Hi everyone it’s Comic Update day! Check it out on Tapastic & Smackjeeves! This week’s challenge was to show Daikonran’s willingness to apologize and help Secondet out regardless of who the angel is.

Part of the struggle I worked through on this page was feeling discouraged at my own comic. This page took far too long to finish because I was constantly over-analyzing the view/follow count and asking myself if it was worthwhile to keep working on this project. But it’s thanks to you, my readers on this blog, on Tapas and Smackjeeves, that I decided to continue on and keep on publishing it. Thank you so much! ♥

I’ll be working on extra content once the chapter is done, so if there’s something you’d like to know about Chapter 1 or of the comic, feel free to ask and I’ll draw it!

3-Color Challenge: Spellcaster Prince

No prints of this piece but I do have commission slots available in this style!

Art Process

Hi everyone and welcome back to Color Challenge! This is a rather short video since I wanted to practice more chili style illustrations and brush up on my cel-shading technique. This week has been a little more busy than usual so my videos have been a little on the short side so I can keep up with all the content due in each day. This color challenge also marks the end of the strict structure of the series. I’ve found myself struggling to come up with more art with my webcomic; I’m actually running out of characters to draw without heading into spoiler territory, go figure! So I decided to stop adhering so strictly to 1 to 3 colors and focus more on the color choices and palettes. This doesn’t mean I’m abandoning the concept, it just means I’ll be working with more colors in some illustrations. The main ideas of this series are to practice restraint, draw more Nightmare’s Tragedies illustrations and finally have fun!

I’ll see you all in a bit for tonight’s stream! It might running a little late tonight, still have a lot of prep work to do!

Timelapse Tuesday #23: Little Coco

No prints of this since it was another gift! I do have Puppy Portraits available in my shop!

Art Process

hi everyone and welcome back to Timelapse Tuesday! This week I’m sharing another of my first finished oil paintings! Like Luna, I used my Daler Rowney water soluble oil paints with Winsor Newton Fast-Dry medium (my go-to medium!). I really enjoy painting in this medium because of the creaminess of the paint and how long it takes to actually dry. These two pieces were very much planned out and I was able to do other work while they cured. If you’re curious to learn more about the paints I use, please check out this post!

I’ll see you all soon for the Oil Painting Art Stream after working on videos and digital commissions!

Materials

  • Art Alternatives 5″ x 7″ Canvas Board (+ 5 coats of gesso and sanded)
  • Daler Rowney Georgian Water Mixable Oil Paints
  • Winsor Newton Artisan Water Soluble Fast Dry Medium
  • Winsor Newton Artisan Water Soluble Satin Varnish
