Daily Practice 2018 [Week 3]

Journal Entry: Mon Sep 11, 2017, 10:11 PM


Daily Practice 2018 - Week 3

Daily practice again for 2018. Bit more like weekly practice and not everything will be uploaded. Going to let it be a bit looser and not only just do the square thing. Maybe that'll help consistency this time around. Things will still be as loose and unfinished as ever, so as I get back into the groove of things, perhaps they'll get more interesting and varied again, if they were in the first place:

Feel free to click each one for comments, etc if you're curious. And if you'd like to pick up the template to do this yourself, here's the .CLIP and PSD along with a preview of the blank template.



And also, just a reminder, anything traced in these studies is purely for practice purposes and not with intent to claim ownership of any other artist's drawing. For the most part, Pixiv artists have been the subjects of study when applicable, but I'd still just like to state it just in case. 

Maybe after being on here for 2 or 3 years, going back to things like tracing might seem odd, but I have always felt like I've had a bit of trouble in terms of determining what shapes and what kind of detail I can show to make my drawings look more interesting. 

I will definitely not be using any of that to try and get credit for other people's work, so I hope that's clear that if I mark something as traced, it won't be part of a published work.

Bellated OC Request pt. 1 by soul-crafter Cassana by soul-crafter
Sharing more commissions done recently for me. Love them all and thanks again everybody!

Also, I've been doing more practice, it just so happens that it's been for some instances where I can't upload the results. Not due to anything bad, but just a character privacy thing. 

For the next things I'll be doing though, they should be able to go up. I do need to plan more pieces for myself, like always, but I did open that request one, so I'll start things from there. Though the collab priority would be first before then. 
Art Livestream (ONLINE) by CorytheC
CorytheC
Just sharing a livestream where you might see some familiar characters of mine. :>
Forgot to do that count thing. I'm still drawing and I've drawn some other stuff. I did finish this a collab or two, though they're not ones I'd like to post. 

This is one in progress though:
[Commission] Calypso - WIP02 by Voleno

Thanks again for liking my stuff and watching my page, though. It's cool that you're all still caring when I don't post all that frequently.
Work Practice (1-22) by Voleno
Was at work practicing some more of that bounding box idea that I was doing with the butt pose from the other day.

Julesta Sketch WIP 00 by Voleno
Though the box is zoomed in that case, it's the same thing with trying to mimic a 3D space or canvas roughly instead of just either bringing in an actual grid tool or doing the usual flat, 3/4ths standing character. 

There was also a reference to the butt pose, but the two sketches above were constructed with no reference. Just purely by thinking about and placing the body differently with that cube in mind. 
! Daily Practice (2018) - 0002 by Voleno Julesta Sketch WIP 01 by Voleno Neph Story Outfits WIP 02 by Voleno

Sketches and practice from the stream today. Learned a bit of technique that I was trying to put in use just with spacing everything inside of a cube and trying to map out where it would be within that. 

(Somehow, that resulted in a butt pose, but I learned a lot doing that, honestly...)

Also, it looks like my line style has changed once again, but I felt a lot more comfortable with this pen where the thin and thicker lines were a lot easier to achieve in terms of getting a more varied look. The Turnip pen style just seems kinda stale to me, now, so we'll see how that looks when coloring it in some way.
Streaming: Online (Jan 20, 2018) by Voleno
(Going to stream after XSplit updates.)
My work schedule is back to normal finally and I've been taking some steps to manage my time about the game I've been wanting to make. 

So far, it's been a whole lot of wanting and not a whole lot of making, so I decided to go the obtuse way and sign myself up for a time clock app that an actual company would use.

I clock in at a certain consistent time of day after work or for at least 8 hours on days off. So far, I've been using that time to do a final brainstorm compiling all of the systems and characters and story bits I've been thinking of with a deadline of the 31st. 

After then, I'll be making an actual design document out of it all and seeking out those who can help me get this thing off the ground. Can't really do much yet other than pay people out of my own pocket, but that's just kinda the way it goes. 

Already after a week of this, it's changed how I view my time and given me an actual routine that seems to lead up to a proper start on this game, so while the rate of art might take a while to start back up, hopefully, there will be some shareable concept pieces of Nephryst and other characters coming in the next few weeks.

For now, here are some sketches:

Happy New Years, everybody! And to those of you for whom it was hours ago.

Just using this for the summary again this year. Available if you all wanted it. Was originally an edit of this one:
2013 Art Clock Meme by roika-elfili
So credit to them, as well.
Just now realized I didn't do a December poll, but I still wonder who all is still here.
Just to clarify, my birthday is next Wednesday on January 3rd, so I'm not 24 quite yet. It's pretty close, though. Year went by pretty fast.
Merry Christmas, everybody! I'm with family till about Tuesday, so no fun Christmas Nephryst this year, but I might try and at least put up some sort of drawing by January 3rd or so.

Having birthday and Christmas so close always makes time seem to travel faster. Can't believe I'll be 24 already. That's like... a year away from what I used to think was pretty old...
I had my tagline changed to "trying to draw every week" for a while. I suppose the emphasis was on the "trying" part. Success has not manifested on that front for a while, but I'm still trying.

I don't really know why this happens every year at the end and beginning of the next year, but hopefully, I can figure out a way to weave some way through it.

Oh and for personal updates, I've been going through holiday schedules at work, which has only served to contribute to the lack of energy for drawing, but the reveal for Soul Calibur 6 and the fact that I've been given a Dreamcast to finally play Soul Calibur 1 has put me in the mood to draw those characters. 

Talim is an obvious one (if you look real closely at Neph's clothing style,) and I also like Cassandra and Amy. Who else from the Soul Series would you like to see me draw?

Just sharing some recent artwork of my characters. I don't know who's actually a fan enough to be on the lookout for stuff like that.

Also, next time I go to work is Friday, so if there's not some art this week, I've really fallen off. I've had some things in progress for a while.
In case you were wondering what that random mermaid question was about. 
[CC: Week 2] Mermaid Neph by Voleno
It's a part of this weekly prompt thingy by Darkesper
<da:thumb id="713567752"/>

This week's is a mermaid, obviously. It's not like every time I draw weekly, the prompts have to be made by somebody else, but I think in general that helps me think differently about it. Sometimes I get lax when it's just something I'm doing for myself, as you can see if you probably zoom into any of my personal work. But at the very least, it gets me to view it differently when the action of it becomes about submitting it to someone else. 
I think I missed the opportunity for the Menat thing by now. Those 45 days of drawing in a row just kinda took it out of me. I'm working on coms again though and updated this old journal with some refinements.
[Experimental Commissions] 0/2 (Open?)Updates:
I'm still practicing more until I feel like I can do something consistently.But, if you would like to be a part of a style that's changing somewhat, you're welcome to pay what you think a commission would be worth after receiving it. Going to limit slots here, though.

The quicker option, overall in which I'll start with a tiny sketch, enlarge it and re-sketch it, generally spending less time than I would on lineart. Colored sketches will feature any kind of shading that feels fitting to the piece and may include replacing it with grayscale or tones if approved.

  • If you're intending on thanking me for a favorite or something like that, ask me a question about it or a critique so we can talk more! I tend to forget to comment otherwise...q.q
  • My reply of "No problem!" to your "Thank you!" isn't gonna do much, but the chance to learn and improve and talk about other things would hopefully be more fun.
Either way, you get it. You're welcome!
