After struggling with creating some crops for my farm tiles, I’ve decided to take a break from them (I do not like them at all), and instead work on a sprite base that I’ve been planning to include in the pack.
But since I hate pixelart …
… And I wanted to go for a more painted style …
I’ve decided to go with a harsh pixel outline, but on the inside, still paint everything (so I’m using like a million colours). I draw the outline first, then paint big, and scale it back down – it works wonders.
That’s what I’ve come up with for now. Still tweaking some things of course.
And yes, my inspiration definitely comes from harvest Moon.
So this is my … 4th (I think) piece while drawing on my tablet, and I still can’t get rid of the shaky lines 😦
I don’t know how other people pull it off, but I think I’ve been way too used to a mouse all these years. I guess more practice and faster strokes will even things out. Until then … shaky lines >_<
On a sidenote: some people sure are shocked to find my stockpile of MomoKai art and fanfic.
Drawing VS pixel art is just soooooo much better. It’s faster, it doesn’t take forever, and you can make like a thousand shortcuts while working.
I like how pixel art looks like, but actually making it? Hell no.
Alright, back to work. I have icons to make!
And they’re here! I can turn them into cards now 😀
Because I’m a starving artist, I must take on commissions.
Well ok, I’m not really starving, but my dental bill was sky-high, so I need to improvise.
You can request my art here.
I drew these two drawings below to print them out and turn them into cards.
I’ll be giving these to the MomoKai doujinshi artists at the Kaidoh event in May ^_^
Drawing eyes is my favourite thing about drawing. Everything else, ehhh, I don’t like it. I like seeing the finished product, so I force myself through the process, but I only enjoy making eyes!
So here’s some eyes on my newest MomoKai drawing.
I like to draw big (and in 300dpi) so that I can later print it if I want to. Now to actually finish the rest of the drawing …
