Another painter test, the original photo was taken at a local botanical garden, fussed with in painter and sketched over in photoshop.
Arboretum by Napoleon-chan
My main interest in learning to draw nature is so I can have backgrounds in a comic and they won't look like garbage.
My cool buddy Onion gave me Painter for my birthday, and I'm playing with it now. It seems like a less labor intensive work around to just take photos myself, and then turn them into paintings, but I'm not sure how I feel about such a cheat.   It sure is faster though...
This is a photo I took, painted 'over' with Painters fancy effects.
Fog by Napoleon-chan
Backgrounds of any sort are the great struggle of my artistic life.  After many hours and many tutorials and I have made a scene I don't think looks like total turds.  Lets hope it keeps getting better with practice.

doing some coloring because I hate making backgrounds and wanted a break from trying.

Some less refined character references, I'm not going to practice inking these guys since they're rather minor characters.

Personal Quote: "Bite my elastic bubble gum, and get me some round!"
Since I haven't updated my journal since 2013, I just wanted to write a new one, so here it is.

I spent a lot of time away from drawing to paint, modify, sculpt props and sew for bjds, you can see the work on flickr if you're curious,…
I used to do faceups and mods on commission but I did it even when I didn't want to, and grew to hate it. I still like to sew (I will not do it on a commission basis though) and make props to sell but I'm gravitating back to drawing.
I'm working on and off on a comic, hopefully as it develops it will gain some interest :)
