Steps 3 - Final

Well. I forgot to save step 2 so... here's the final product. Sorry. :(

Anyway, the way I work is after I set down a foundation like in step 1, i use special layers with effects such as overlay, soft light, etc to adjust the colors. Then I create a new layer in which I paint and color using normal layer style. Rinse and repeat like 4-5 times and that's what I come up with.

I think the problem with my technique is that the original line work gets lost in translation. I begin to lose motivation to continue(or to start) because I know that what I do will be erased by later layers. Hmm...if only I did clean enough lines worth saving...

Steps 1-3

How I draw(at least lately):
Step One: Sketch something
Step Two: Flat Base Color underneath that will be the general feel of the picture
Step Three: Basic highlights/shading so I know the light source

That's what I have so far for this picture, in my next post(unless i get lazy and just..don't) I will show the next steps.

Creepy Lai-brarian

Lai drew this, not me. i'm just uploading it cuz it's on my computer.

Edit: She haunts the library of Kimball Elementary School. I was sufficiently creeped out, I would say.

Mud, mud, mud.

I did a mentor thing for a little while and got to know two awesome 6th graders, Jerry and Christian. They are hilarious. They also hate their teacher and often draw her as a pig.
This is one of our collaborations.

Continued from the inspiration from Kazuki Tomokawa - A Take Away Show

Glances in Green

Lai found an awesome video from Un Concert A Emporter(A Takeaway Show) featuring Kazuki Tomokawa that we are both very fond of. To celebrate I have drawn some old men. HURRAY

Sorry I like to draw boobs Lai

Rough sketch going after a jazzy, classy vibe. ... It kind of reminds me of this one time I used a reference picture of a girl standing outside. I was really proud of it and showed it to my mom only to find that the reference picture I used was of a prostitute.

Btw the girl is based off my Lai. Have a nice day.
