Original: Warm up of some… guy? I dunno, just randomly sketching. I worked on this at size - so the canvas was only 500x700 px. Working small forces me to be very loose. I like it.
Original: When all else fails… draw a sexy lady in a bikini that just killed a big monster. I may or may not have been influenced by o-8's [The amazing Alex Ahad] recent wonderful bikini girl post.. Hehehehe… ♥
3 Pillars: Secant! Worked at-size… tis always weird not to work super huge…
Now to work on commissions!
Original Art: Warm up paint that went haywire, as usual. I love the play of a yellow/violet color scheme… and dark skinned girls. ♥
Original: Oh hey there handsome… Major props if you know who this is. Chances are you won’t. Heh.
Rurouni Kenshin: Finished up this picture.
Tried out a new brush on this… like like like. I like finding new brushes.
But yeah… started watching this recently! Not a bad show~ I like playing anime catch up… [I have about fifteen years of anime to watch!] hehehe.
See a bigger version here on my DeviantART!
DOTA 2: Treant Protector. Surprisingly… this was a hero I didn’t think I would click with. But I did. I love protector-type tanks…
[and I adore his responses… ♥]
Would I could afford to buy my love a fine robe
Made of gold and silk Arabian thread
She is dead and gone and lying in a pine grove
And I must push my barrow all the day
"Eli the Barrow Boy", The Decemberists
Original Illustration: A lil’ CGing warm up between sketching… she may need to reapply her bandages… All done in Paint Tool Sai.
World of Warcraft: A commission I’m working on of Rargnasha and the lovely Grogona.
I don’t show enough procedure on how I “CG-Render" my works. So enjoy a rough version of how I apply color to my illustrations after I’m done with the toning/shading!
I actually will go back in and apply even darker tones to ensure depth. Using light and dark properly in your illustrations helps with depth…
[Maybe I’ll make a post tomorrow of my highlights procedure! XD]
Commission: Finished colors on my happy puppy commission~ you have no idea how badly I wanna throw a sword in his mouth… hehehe.
Dark Souls: Finished my illustration from the other day. Meet Zinrak~ My other character in Dark Souls… Whenever I co-op with people… chances are I’m playing this lady instead. She’s… stronger than Karniz. /laughs

WIP: O hey, Uchi on Tumblr - your advice helped! One of the brushes in that set is GREAT! Hehehehe. Working on a digital paint of my “Brass Knightess" character in Dark Souls.
What started as a simple pencil sketch might come out a nice lil’ illustration. ^w^;;
@ Rammy: Yes! I’d love any advice/help you can offer, o wise one~ ♥
Testing out Photoshop: Grr… I dunno why but I can’t seem to enjoy it. Anyone got any pointers for brush settings to help with blending colors? No matter what I try, I can’t get a decent pressure-attested brush…
[yet I see amazing artists out there producing astonishing works using Photoshop. That, or they’re really using Paint Tool Sai and not telling anyone… ohohohoho~]
What I see is that there is a lot of unneeded constant going back and forth with colors to blend it juuuuust right. This picture shown above took me FOURTY MINUTES in PS CS3 [with what would have taken me FIVE in Paint Tool Sai.] …
That’s depressing, folks! >w<;;
