Hey there, I'm Sarah! I don't really know what I'm doing on here, but I do art stuff, so at least that's something. Inbox is open if anyone wants to ask me something or even just chat. Primary account is fuzzydork

Question:

How are you so good at drawing??

Answer:

I’m sure you’ve heard this a million times before, but the old saying “practice makes perfect” is true. I’m always pushing myself to try new things no matter how impossible it may seem. Don’t put yourself in a creative stranglehold; if you mostly do cartoony things then try doing something realistic! It is my firm belief that you should never compare your own art to someone else’s art. Instead, I recommend looking at some of your older works (it doesn’t matter if it’s a year old or even something you did a week ago) and compare it to your newer stuff. You should be proud of any strides; big or small; you’ve made when refining your style. And remember; there’s always room for improvement.

In celebration of Sword and Shield’s release, I dusted off some of my old Fakemon designs and redrew them. Meet Gyleok and Gargyleton the Gargoyle Pokémon! Legends say these Pokémon were once normal Gargoyles. It is speculated that the orb is what gives them life, which is why you never see Gyleok or Gargyleton without it.

There isn’t enough love for Gitaroo Man, so I wanted to contribute and spread awareness for the craziest and most challenging rhythm game out there.

I’ve decided to start posting some of my paintings from my introductory painting class I took last semester. This was my final project from the class, which involved putting magazine cutouts together in a collage and then copying it onto the canvas with oil paints. The theme of this painting is the contrast between natural and man-made beauty. I’m in no way perfect at painting, but I feel like this class really helped me improve.

I was doing some experimenting and decided to draw my own take on Sonic’s movie design!

Movie redesign #2, electric boogaloo.  Decided to be much more literal with the OG “modern” proportions this time.

Design notes:

  • quills overall closer to face & brow
  • kept original shapes where possible
  • smooth forehead-to-quill transition; no bumps or lumps
  • thick lashline
  • quills are LOOSELY arranged in iconic shape. he is not wearing hairgel
  • smaller nostrils, simpler teeth
  • limbs are thicker near extremities to balance them with small torso: unrealistic, but strong silhouette
  • quills on shoulders to serve as transition. arm color does not matter
  • fingerless gloves to make larger hands more anatomically acceptable to the casual eye

In general, I tried to go the Detective Pikachu route and add realism to the cartoon rather than start from the ground up.  His anatomy may not make sense, but he’s instantly recognizable and looks good just standing there.

But don’t be fooled - this stuff is tricky to balance.  This isn’t a case of “why didn’t they just hire you?  You did it so easily!“  The only reason I could is because I’ve A: done several drawings of a "real” Sonic by now and B: have the benefit of seeing the backlash & rejected design to know what WILL NOT work.  This is hard stuff. 

As always, this is in good fun, and not intended to mock the film.  That team is working down to the bone.  Please be respectful of the film in the replies!

I SAW DETECTIVE PIKACHU

OH MY GOSH IT WAS EVERYTHING I WANTED AND MORE! I loved seeing all of the Pokemon and just the sheer scale of Ryme City and the world around it. I enjoyed being able to recognize all of the music cues from the games and anime. I absolutely loved Tim Goodman and Lucy Stevens as characters. The interactions between Tim and Pikachu were incredibly heartwarming. And lastly, it’s amazing how many different emotions I felt during this movie. I was excited, happy, mystified, shocked, sad, and in the end I was cheering. If you’re a long time fan like me or someone who’s new to the franchise, I recommend this movie to everyone.

I know I’m super late celebrating the anniversary of two awesome games, but I thought I’d draw my favorite psychic kids together anyway.
