Where have I been? Who’s this chick??

Where have I been? Who’s this chick??

First of all, the question no one asked, but I’m about to answer: Where have I been? School! I have by no means given up on art, but I have been very busy getting adjusted to a new school and keeping up with a college-level class. I have been drawing in my personal sketchbook and have been creating for my art class, but (as my followers can tell) I haven’t been as active on my blog.

have been in the planning phase for a webcomic that I hope to be able to create, although that may be in the far future. I am also participating in a couple of stories on Storium, so I can connect with other writers and hopefully improve my writing style. I’ve been working on improving my art and getting inspiration from other artists like Kasey Golden. I’m not dead! However, I’ve started focusing more on developing my artwork on my own instead of trying to maintain a regular blogging schedule.

Second question: Who is this girl? Like I said, I have started using Storium, which a friend from my school recently introduced me to. I haven’t begun any games yet, but preparing for them has given me a reason to get back into character design. I wanted to participate in a friend’s science-fiction story, so that gave me a prompt to design a new character! I started thinking about things that weren’t done often in modern sci-fi stories, and then remembered a Kasey Golden video I watched with an alien who worked at a fast food restaurant. With this inspiration, I started designing my own character, and that’s how I came up with this cutie right here!

Sou Icon - Colored
She seems bored. Or fed up with someone? Maybe just tired!

This is Sourelise, or Sou. She belongs to a rat-like species of alien, and she worked in various fast food joints throughout the Milky Way before being hired on a starship. She doesn’t make friends easily, but she’ll have to learn to cooperate with her fellow crew members if she doesn’t want to go back to working at a burger restaurant on Pluto.

I’m experimenting with different ways of coloring, and it’s really fun to use digital programs to fill in my traditional lineart! It takes some getting used to, but I really like the way this piece turned out. I guess you could count this towards my series of animal girls? You know, since she’s based on a rat. Just kidding! I had a great time just designing a character for fun, and I hope to share more art with my followers when I find the time. I may use this character for my own projects in the future, but for now, I’ll just be playing as her on Storium.

Anyway, thanks for following me, even though I don’t post much. It means a lot to have people supporting me on my artistic journey! Until next time (whenever that may be), PenPrin out.

Line Art: Owl Girl

Line Art: Owl Girl

Eeeeeeeeee! Sorry, I’m just so excited to be drawing these fun animal girls again. This adorable owl girl is another one in my series of animal-themed coloring pages! Someday, I hope to have enough to fill a coloring book. This one was a request from a Facebook friend of mine who asked, “Can you do an owl girl?” Well, I can and I did! (Even though it took me a long time.)

OMG. She looks like she wants to give you a hug! Don’t leave her hanging!!!

Starting from the top, her hair poof is  in the shape of a feather! In addition, her pigtails represent the ear fluff of an actual owl. I wanted to give her cute cartoon eyebrows like I usually give my characters, but still convey the intense-looking eyebrows that owls have. I did my best to combine the two! Does it work? Let me know what you think!

The pointy nose I drew on her face is somewhat beak-like, I think. Her glasses are supposed to look like cute, tiny wings. Since owls are often portrayed as wise, I immediately thought of this girl being a student! Thus, I drew her in a private school outfit which I think turned out great. Her fluffy jacket is intended to be like an owl’s feathery wings! Last but not least, her socks have the same “v”-like feathery pattern that I often see on cartoon owls. Adorable!!

She’s also meant to look a little bit younger than my other animal girls. If I were to rank them from youngest to oldest, I would say that this owl girl is first, then the kitty girl, the bat girl, the polar bear girl, the ladybug girl, and finally the fox girl. Even if they’re not all the same age, I could totally see the five of them hanging out together.

Please give suggestions as to what kind of animal character you’d like me to draw next! Even if it takes me a while, I’ll do my best to acquiesce to your request. 😉 Or, if you want something more specific, you can always commission me to draw an existing character or one of your own. My prices are really cheap, if I do say so myself! And I do say so. So there. LOL As always, thanks to my lovely Citizens!

I am half of a whole; my other half, a hole.

My family and I recently watched the movie Saving Banksy on Netflix. Saving Banksy is a movie about how street artists’ works are being removed from buildings and sold for high prices at auctions without the creator’s permission. My mom, Crafty B, said in a post that when I’m moved by something, I write a song about it. In this case, I drew a picture about it.

This illustration imagines a piece of street art containing two characters that was half-removed. It can also represent a situation in real life when someone you love or care deeply about is torn away from you.

My original intent was for this creature to look like a little dog boy, but my parents say that he looks like a sheep. I just wanted to create a fantastical, fun-looking animal person that left you wondering what the other half of the artwork was like.

I hope you enjoy this piece! As always, have a wonderful day.

Line Art: Fox Girl

Line Art: Fox Girl

She looks more playful than she does sly! Maybe even a bit nervous? Gotta love those skinny little stick-arms.

This one was a request from my friend! I know her in real life, but we live very far from each other, so I mostly talk to her online. She suggested that I do “a fox or a fiery animal.” Kudos to her for this great prompt! I had a little trouble with it, but I feel like the finished product looks absolutely adorable.

The fox-inspired parts of her include her hair, with a ponytail that is styled to look like a fox’s tail, and her hair clip, which is a fox head. The pupils in her eyes are slits, like a fox’s pupils. I also tried to make her ears a bit longer and less rounded than I usually draw them, like a fox’s pointy ears! Her fluffy scarf and the fluffy parts of her gloves and boots represent fur. She has those long gloves and boots because of the black markings on a fox’s front and back legs. If this piece were colored, her boots and gloves would be black or dark brown!

I have another request coming up, but also a lot of “just for fun” doodles that I hope to post soon. Feel free to leave suggestions for more animal girls or other things I could draw! Have a wonderful day, my Citizens.
