This week, I’ll be taking a short break from chibis... mainly because I realized I don’t know how to draw Gandalf, nor do I have a chibi base that fits his proportions (both being obstacles that could be surmounted — if it weren’t well past 4 o’clock in the morning. I need a better schedule).
Instead, I was wondering if you’d like to see a painting I was working on earlier. I think it turned out really well (read: “best drawing evaaaaaaar asdfghklihjbkfjg I’m so exited!!“), and I hope you guys will like it too! 😊
The color palette beside it is what I used to color her uniform-dress-thingie. It was made by a color-palette-auto-generating web program... something I didn’t know existed until, like, yesterday.
I’m really glad it exists though.
I used the program Procreate to make this, like I do for basically everything in these Tuesday posts. 😋 I used different brushes than for the chibis, though! “Gouache” and “Hard Airbrush”, mostly, but the Smudge tool played a HUGE role in it, too.
This drawing took a long, looooooong time, but I think it was worth it in the end! This kind of thing is something I really love to do, and it’d be SO great if I could do it as a job one day. I’ve heard of people selling characters they’ve made up for real money — have any of you heard of that? I think that’d be really cool, even if I couldn’t do it for a living, it’d be a productive hobby.
What’s something you love to do more than anything else? Could you do it as a job later in life? Would you enjoy that just as much as you enjoy it now? Please tell me in the comments!
That’s all for now, and I’ll see you next week! 😁
