"The Game"

Don't you just hate me? Ha. Well, this is from back when I used my actual notes as doodle pages... there is actually a little bit of work in there and at least one of the doodles is related to another bit of work done in the lesson. Clearly, I am a focussed individual.

This was actually the first appearance of the flying squirrel. Hooray! One day, when I am able to paint fir or paint better in general, I will be creating a painting of that very squirrel - because I can.

I know, it's kinda boring but... well, you'll get over it, won't you? Yes. Yes, you will. Haaa. I promise something more interesting soon.

So, this is vaguely boring as far as doodle pages go... I have a lot more interesting ones... but this is a landmark moment. This is the first page in my doodle book that actually has lecture doodles on it. Yep, that's how much I doodle. It took me this long and there are LOTS more pages to come after this one and they get fuller and fuller as you get into the book.

It's funny that the first of my lecture doodles is posted after my first year of lectures has died down. I'm now in that ever unproductive exam period. I have one exam and not much else to do. Excellent. Not sure what I'm going to do with myself, really.

"Blair" Experiment

So, I created a picture for a friend as part of an art trade. That picture was of her character Blair. I'm pretty happy with it, it's been a while since I've actually finished something. This is the finished piece, which you can also see on DeviantART. Now, when I was working on this, putting the finishing touches which included a purple layer (which I think in the final image is set to either soft light or overlay at about 51% opacity) to make the image 'pop' a bit more. While trying things out to see what looked best I accidentally did this:

I set the purple layer to 'darken' and this happened. I REALLY like it. Really, really. I think it looks awesome, even if it does hide the painting that I spent hours blending and making pretty. It looks all experminetal and nice. Maybe I shall attemp to do more like this. Hm. Who knows. I liked it. Thought you might too.

"Fleck" sketchy

A very sketchy and weird looking Fleck. Hooray! Please note: Fleck is not mine she belongs to Mister Andrew Lloyd Webber and Miss Niamh Perry, who plays her. This doesn't really look like Niamh's version but eh, I sketched it without reference - I did it from memory of the pictures I've seen. I've yet to see Love Never Dies but I will. It's no surprise that I am now obsessed with this character... just look at her design. (Google it) She just screams something I'd love. Next time I draw her, it should be decent drawing too, I will attempt to make her look more feminine. :D
