This is my new art journal.  It will be public.
(I am ereya on deviantart)

I wanted a place where I could post unfinished stuff, so hopefully I will be using this journal to do so in the future.

And hopefully someone will see it.


And I will most definitely stop centering my text after this post

...because it really annoys me.

DISCLAIMER: I'm not really obsessed with poop. -_-  It's an inside joke on many levels and it amuses me.

Two more Potter portraits:

Lily Evans

Ron Weasley

Yesterday I discovered a really great way to vent off anger and annoyance. I was really pissed off for some reason as I was driving home last night, so I cranked up the volume of the radio and starting arguing loudly with the DJ. It quickly escalated to a full on verbal massacre. Fuckin awesome, I tell you... And I felt SO MUCH BETTER afterward. XD

And I really wonder how it will look in the morning. Sometimes my opinion changes significantly overnight.

(Oh, and I'm still thinking in British accents, btw.)

copied from my dA:

Reason for lack of glasses: While I was painting this, I saved the glasses for last because I figured it would be a lot easier that way. And then when I added them he just looked like such a TOOL that it made me sad. And I suddenly realized: Harry Potter's glasses are retarded. I mean, they're fine for when he's the poor kid stuck under a cupboard, but no grown man (or 17-year-old even) would wear those round wire frames. Get some bloody contacts, man!! Or magically fix the shape of your eyeballs. </copypasta>

Oh, and I'm in love with A Very Potter Musical.

I was introduced to A Very Potter Musical today, which is absolutely brilliant. I think the cast is just fantastic, and the guy who plays Harry is like almost out of my imagination. Seriously, the show is FUCKING GREAT.

But I wasn't even done with act 1 yet when MY INTERNET DIED. FUCK THAT.

So in the meantime, I was super inspired to draw Harry Potter. And here's what I've got so far (with glasses and a scar scribbled on to identify him).

I FUCKING LOVE IT. I haven't fucking loved a drawing in so long. Ahhhh now I'm happy. I want to hunt down a boy who looks like this so I can fucking marry him.

Yayyyy now the internet is back, so I think I'll watch more of the musical and get back to this later.

Oh, and I was listening to the Answer Me This podcast (also brilliant) while I was drawing, which explains all the swearing in this post. Because now I'm thinking in British, and every time I write "fuck," I hear it in an English accent and it's FUCKING HILARIOUS. Sorry kids.

Oh, and I drew some shit sketch yesterday but it's lameeee so I won't even bother posting it.

Ugh. I started rendering Jesse today:

I'm not 100% pleased with how it's going. I'm not good at building a face and making it do what I want. Usually I just wing it and it ends up looking like a face... but not the face I was going for.

Today was sluggish. I woke up at 2 after 12 hrs of sleep. And to think- I was so worried I wouldn't be able to sleep again. (The night before I had mad insomnia... only got 2.5 hrs of sleep and it freaked me out. I never get insomnia.) Bleehhhh I feel like this drawing is pulling me back. Those photo/life studies actually seemed to be getting me somewhere. But this drawing is like... back to where I was before. But I still want to force myself to finish it because 1) I actually want to do a character tribute to these three, and 2) I need to do more full body stuff.

I feel a rant coming on...Collapse )

I actually did this one last night:

I tried the whole building-from-nothing thing where you block in colors with really soft brushes and work in hard edges later. It's cool because it actually kind of worked the way I wanted, but... I dunno it was so WEIRD. Like I had no idea what I was doing the entire time and then suddenly a face appeared. I'll have to try it again...

something elseCollapse )

Okay, finally got those sketches scanned and compiled.

pretty big fileCollapse )

I'm considering starting a sketchbook thread at conceptart.org, because those seem to generate really great feedback, and I get like zero traffic here. But... MAJOR INTIMIDATIONNNNN!!!! Too many incredible artists there... I would feel stupid. Ahhhh I don't know.

Anyways, here's a couple more from today. Sorry for double posting. I didn't think I'd be this productive...

3 moreCollapse )

I'm still trudging through Algenpfleger's sketchbook and it still amazes me. I'm way jealous of his motivation.

IIII got a mirror. Lol finally.

This one actually does look kind of like me. Kind of. I dunno, I keep thinking that drawing from life/photo reference is easier than it is. But I'm pretty bad at it. Maayyybe I should practice more....

I just went on vacation for a week and rediscovered this thing called paper. Awesome. So I'll post some of those sketches once I get them scanned.

In the meantime, here's some stuff from before I left and a little bit from today.
