[Project 365] Days 016-025 // oh what you do to me / no one knows  
Colbert Report had an amazing The Word segment on Rand Paul. I died laughing and I really shouldn’t have laughed but really. Wow, what an…in response to a question about why tax cuts for the rich… "We're all interconnected. There are no rich, no middle class, no poor.... We all either work for rich people or sell stuff for rich people." Oh god. But at least I get to laugh. Thank you, Colbert, for brightening my day. Scarily so.

Had some more history/political babble but decided to post another day. Anyway. I’m just going to shut up about everything and…dump all the sketches that’d accumulated in the week before my computer went to hell and my life gave me a hell of a time. I still claim the two-week amnesty for project 365, I’m just saying. ._.

I’m also going to cheat a little. I don’t have the time to do a whole colored image in one day, so I will post WIPs and that’ll count for my day. Sh’up. Busy college student with emo in the head who can’t sublimate via art, what can you do. D:

The thing about fashion design pics is, the models they draw are always so over the top in terms of heroic proportions (8 heads, versus the typical range of 6-7 for women and 6.5-7.5 for men). So...those were ridiculous and turned out really badly.

Then, I believe I was 4 days behind and went, "oh, hell, I'm whipping out my easy go-to of Black Cat sketches." So yeah, four speed-sketches (018-021) of Eve, Rinslet, Train, and Sephiria. Eve and Rinslet took about 10-15 mins; Train was more stubborn at 15-20, and Sephiria...evidently I can't do side-view as well as I thought, 'cause things kept not turning out right and that took forever. So much for speed sketching.

Looked at a very awesome coloring tutorial on dA and decided to put it into motion and improve my very very shitty coloring skills. Drew a random picture that's heavily inspired by a pose I saw in the random sketches enclosed in the Pandora Hearts artbook, and then it...so far, is turning out more demonic than I thought? 022 - lineart, 023 - I spent a lot of time modifying the lineart as it wasn't decent enough to color, and made the head bigger etc, 024 - went with the spooky glow thing there, 025 - more of the same.

Hoping to add some yellows and greens without killing the whole thing, and in an attempt to further unify the reds and slight twinge of purple that's here and there. Ngh.

And man, she looks way more demonic than I intended her to be. Oops. 8D I think it's the hair and the red. Yeeeeah.

EDIT: oh my god this looks awful on my laptop screen, not my monitor. The purples and greens are suddenly blindingly, blindingly obvious. And hideous. Like they haven't blended and. ...I'll be changing all that.

There, I did me some project 365. Doing WIP images is so much easier than finishing one sketch a day, even if I spend more time on the WIP. ...er, whatever. ;;;;;

Sephiria. <3

Also whoa, really liking the colored picture.

How can you be all "<3" with Sephiria and...not really have much of a reaction to Train? :\ ???? At least you think Eve is cool, right...?

Yeah, I dunno. I didn't want it to be as one color oriented as it's being now, thanks a lot, red, plus I need to fix those damn purples and greens like whoa. Plus other things. I hate backgrounds. Now I actually have to think about this one. :\ Blah blah blah.

Because main characters are supposed to be kickass, and all that. I dunno. I like him well enough, it's just usually the side characters that grab me. Very side. As in, I think the entire crew is pretty cool, but Sephiria is just awesome. Maybe it's because she doesn't get that much screen time.

Mm-hm. Classic over-thinking artist. It'd be good if you ended up happy with it, but I think it'll look great even if you don't.

Eh, you know I tend to favor not-mains also. I dunno, I guess Sephiria's a cool enough standard Lady of War for me, but. ...hey, wait a minute, if we're going on screentime/depth in small glimpses, then why don't you fixate on characters in Fire Emblem the way I do?

Not over-thinking, simply carefully thinking about color schemes and noticing things that you probably would just shrug at. D: D:

Uh.....can't come up with a great reason off the top of my head. Possibly because I've played 3-5 of those games, and the characters are beginning to run together in my head?

There is a distinct possibility of that...8D

Hey, I played FE6-10, and I thought they were all pretty distinct. :\ Well, except for those two cavaliers you always get at the beginning in the GBA games. 8D

Hahaha. To give an example: I liked the wyvern riders, but it's been a while, and now Heath = Cormag = Haar for all intents and purposes in my head. Oh man, I'm gonna go find the Kevlar now.

Ho ho ho, you science/coding types. :P Though I even recognize that now thanks to ActionScript. *shudder*

Yep...fun with C syntax. I have a friend - longtime coder - who managed to write a line like one of those, and he ended up tracing three completely separate errors back to that line - turns out he needed an extra set of parentheses or else it did the wrong thing.
