One of the first animated films that I ever saw was Nausicaa of the Valley of Wind. Standing next to Castle in the Sky and just under Princess Mononoke it’s my all time favorite film.
Done for Ghibli Jam 2014
Playing around with colors. I ended up with something completely different from where I started.
Right handed this time. Though I’m not over this stupid injury yet.
Right handed drawing this time.
I’d love to do more with this (like add some color and a better ink job) but my arm’s still screwed up.
Mo’ left handed drawing.
I want to try and do at least one nice ink drawing a day, along with all my other cruddier lefty sketches and the work I have to do with my right arm.
Left handed drawing.
I’m getting better at controlling my pen and pencil with my left hand, I still can’t add nice details or ‘think’ with the pencil though. Uggggh~
My right arm keeps pretending that its feeling better, then it’ll slowly start to clench up again after a day or two. I think I might actually have to become ambidextrous if I want to still do art for a living.
(I’ve been doing a lot of studies with my left hand lately. I’d share, except most of them are terrible and/ or drawings done from other people’s photo’s.)
So I’ve been learning to draw with my left hand. My lines are still super shaky and its hard to get details in, but its a lot better than when I started.
Little bug sketches
Man, my arm has got to get better. I’m running out of old things to post!
Another old thing that I didn’t finish. I was testing out some different coloring approaches.
Heres some more pre-injury sketchwork. I like my approach in certain areas of this picture, but I need to work on getting my creatures to look like they really live in their environment.
I’m definitely going to need to work on getting my penciling cleaner and tighter if I want to use this pencil and paint approach in the future.
First drawing of the new year.
Listen to this for the full (cheeseball) effect.
I just had to draw something special for new years. Even though my arm is still screwed up and seems to be a long way from fully recovered… I’M NOT GIVING UP! WORK AND WORRY CAN MAUL MY RIGHT ARM TO THEIR HEARTS CONTENT! I’M GONNA GET BETTER!
and hell, I’ve still got a left arm!
