Fassbender, Profile by Imaliea
Fassbender, Profile
My second little romp with uni posca markers. Which are just a divine invention. I've taken to diving in head first and just scribbling straight with pens so ... that's why theres a little weird white thing near his mouth. I'm trying to improve my sight accuracy, and I think I'm getting better. Anybody else notice though it's easier to draw faces facing one particular side? I find it more difficult to draw them facing to the right.

Anyhoo, I mucked around with putting a border on in Photoshop because the scan was so shitty (sorry about that), but I don't actually know if it's an improvement or not. I tried out a mix of contour drawing and realism, which I kind of like. Would love to know what you think! I've been super deviating from my usual style so this is all a little nerve-wracking...

Plus, y'know... Michael Fassbender...

Sherlock by Imaliea
Holy crap, yeah I did a disappearing thing again. What can I say, uni is all-consuming. I always feel so guilty though because I come back and so many wonderful people have left comments (thank you guys!), which always make me so happy to read and so bad that I can't always reply in a timely manner. So, I have meagre offerings... a little sketch of Benedict Cumberbatch's Sherlock :) I'd just bought some new uni posca pens and wanted to try it out --- and he has a very striking profile! Win win. And I finally know why uni posca markers are so awesome. This started as a continuous-line sketch in pen, which inevitably led to mistakes --- but the white pen soon sorted that out!

Just to clarify too, this is a finished artwork, just trialling giving things that slightly unfinished look haha but I won't be going back and filling in his coat or the background or anything.

Well hello there! Fancy meeting you here. And guess what? I come bearing gifts! Sort of. See, I've been watching Tim Minchin's Occasional Address, and basically forcing it down people's throats because it's awesome and I think people should bow to my will. This includes you.…

Highlights include:
  • We're all going to die
  • Opinions are NOT like arseholes
  • Stop trying to seek happiness
  • Life is meaningless

It's one of the most funny and inspiring speeches I've ever heard, and I don't normally like inspiring speeches. Too inspirational. But this... I highly recommend it! And if you don't know who Tim Minchin is... well... aren't you a silly goose.

Without further ado's some art I've found recently that I also think is incredible awesome, and as such, so should you <3

Beyond by TanyaMusatenko
This gives me chills with how it pulls you in... mesmerising

AC:B: Requiescat In Pace by JessKat-art
There's so much I love about this -- it's simple in a way, but very moving and fantastic because Assassin's Creed. Doesn't need to be more.

Hand draw reference FREE by Motoko-Su
I admit it, I hate drawing hands. I used to be one of those people who would always draw people with hands mysteriously behind their backs >_> so this is just a kickass little resource for helping you practice!

Momma's Pizza by joshparkinson
This one just gives me a really warm happy feeling :)

Always a fan of aruarian-dancer's stuff, the detail takes my breath away!

'Forward' by trulsespedal
So simple but powerful. Just love it!

Any art you'd like to show me?

Comment here! I'd love to see it :)

And now for something completely different...

Here's my latest thingie
No way to break this spell by Imaliea

I also have a couple of tutorials up my sleeve as soon as I get time to finish them --- and assuming people are interested!

One is a "How to Paint Scales" using some cool revised scale brushes, and another is fast and dirty way on, "how to paint brickwork" because I dislike spending a lot of time painting walls and thought others might, too. Actually the scales one is pretty fast and dirty as well, now that I think about it. It's all about the fast and dirty! I have to stop saying that now, you'll all get the wrong impression!

I keep trying to think of things that I haven't been able to find tutorials on, or at least not ones that work for me, because I know a lot of them are things that frustrated me :D
