hunter-doodles asked:Your frogs are just amazing! Are there any tips you could give a fellow artist concerning drawing reptiles and amphibians?
And about that tip, it’s just like drawing anything else: observation, breaking down into geometrical shapes, refining, At least it’s what I did and it’s how I managed to create my characters. I didn’t want to copy or borrow anyone’s style for that, so I started drawing from photos and take my own choices of abstraction. Personally, I think it’s the best way to come up with a style: observe the real thing first, copy it repeatedly until you figure out ways of simplifying/abstracting it, in the process. I’m not really where I want to be yet, but I’m on the way. Hope you’ll find yours too!
Some doodles from today. Mostly friends’ characters.
Started a sketchbook with frog doodles only. :) Gotta master frog drawing!
askthesojourner asked:Is it bad that I keep fawning over how dynamic your art is, that I can sometimes see one of your frog characters dressed in a costume of Kamina from 'Gurren Lagann'?
I’m glad you like it. XD I honestly am not familiar with those names, nor do I think my art is dynamic enough. But well, that’s why I’m practicing, I guess!
Commission wip. Liking how Kaerou’s character is looking in this piece.
If I were to make a digital artbook (dang that sounds too professional for me), with all my works and character sketches from 2013-2014, would you buy it? I’m really thinking about making a good compilation including finished pieces, commissions (including WIPS, early doodles), character sketches, etc. What do you guys think? I don’t know if I could make it a printed book because a lot of things I have drawn last year have low resolution. =/ Anyway, it would probably look similar to this example image I made, containing a few “pages”. As for the price, nothing too fancy! I’d probably release it in a place like Gumroad or something similar. It will depend on how big the book gets, but I’d still try to be very reasonable.
So, would you be interested?
Reference Sheet Commission for Shibiru (FA). He commissioned me to create a frog pirate. Had fun working on this. :)
