The process of making Soulful, an illustration inspired by a passage of quinara's intriguing short story To Apprehend Air for the 10 years anniversary of Seasonal Spuffy.

From A to Z, for all interested parties.

Before & After

Feb. 14th, 2016 | 05:09 pm

Fun juxtaposition between sketch and final.

Made me realize how I use two entirely different styles of drawing during one single project. Even slightly feels like I went for a comic-book-panel style with the rough draft and then tried my hand at a "cover" feel with the fleshed out characters. Both directions need refining but hmm... possibilities?

Pretty satisfied. We're getting there.

Happy (Angsty BTVS-y) Valentine's Day!

The Research

Feb. 13th, 2016 | 04:02 am

It is rather amusing when you step back from all the intent analyzing (the nose, the hair, the coat, hm not quite right, more crooked, finer traits, how many earrings was it, cheekbones!, that damn nose, gnh) for a second and realize your screen is absolutely flooded with BTVS material. I mean when this is the nature of your research..? Makes one snicker. Now if only someday I could get paid for all this fun-having hard work, I would be eternally amused. (And grateful. Let's not forget grateful)

SS Banner - Full Version

Feb. 12th, 2016 | 04:21 pm
mood: Impatient.
music: Virgin State of Mind - K's Choice

Still not entirely satisfied and can't pinpoint what exactly feels wrong, but realize I would be tweaking it forever if I don't restrain myself. So. Full version. Voilà.

Theme : Look both ways.

Buffy The Vamp Slayer Illustration : WIP

Oct. 20th, 2015 | 12:24 am
music: Woodkid - Iron

The exercice : creation of a banner for the seasonal-spuffy community.
Level of difficulty : higher than anticipated, as I have to work with real people's features for once. I feel like I'm straddling the fence between portrait and interpretation here. Fun, fun.

Late to The Party

Oct. 19th, 2015 | 02:54 pm

Never expected to join LiveJournal yet here I am navigating its muddy waters. Is it me or is this platform less user-friendly than most? It feels like its actively stopping me from joining the party by promptly declaring me spam (what a welcome) and playing hide and seek with its buttons and functions. I shall tame you, friend, I shall tame you.
