Long time no update lol. My computer is kind of fucked up right now so it's a glorified mp3 player, so I've just been using my phone for everything. And for some reason it's difficult to blog from my phone.
But anyway, I'm playing with copics today and I suuuuuck. I got pretty good when I was at Waseda, but I just never use them anymore and I'm awful with colors to begin with... D:
I like black and white so much better, but I really want to be better at color. Colored work is just so much more encompassing that I feel it's a skill I need to hone.
Today I colored and drew this shitty picture of Kyu:
I fucked up everywhere on this one but wharever lol
In Waseda I did some decent copic stuff:
Nothing fancy but it didn't suck imho. I hate feeling like I'm going backwards. :/
Happy Monday. It's a lucky day off for me, so I wanted to make an update. I kind of got distracted from posting. Such a shame after just starting this thing. Oh well, let's get back on track.
A painting from a couple of days ago.
Lady with antlers and sort of messy up-do. Line-art in pencil.
Next, inked with Staedler pigment liner in 0.05.
Changed the position of the neck a bit.
I usually start pigmenting with the lightest area, in this case the face.
Using some kind of cheap watercolors from an old high school art set,
they can get kind of chalky when dried. :/
I originally thought to do more browns in this, but then that felt a little too normal. So now she's a cotton candy colored deer girl.
I came up with this after looking through some instagrammers under the #watercolors hashtag. I'm trying to screenshot some recs on my twitter and maybe on here of interesting art/artists I stumble across.
I painted another card after this for an instagram friend/fellow Six Gun, of a very a special someone (haha), so I will try to post that one tomorrow.
My first entry in this sketchblog, so I feel I should start out with a small introduction. My name is Sarah, though I often go by a pseudonym osara, which translates from Japanese as dish. I am an American living and working in Osaka, Japan, and though my job isn't in the field of art, it's my goal to improve my skills and hopefully make a place for myself in the professional field as an artist one day.
This blog isn't meant to be some kind of professional portfolio, it's just an outlet and motivator for me to work on my skills by updating as frequently as possible. Just a warning, many shots may be instagram shots.
Just some graphic thing I drew today while watching Happy Days.
