Drawings and Sketches

prince-tribute

Thank you for helping me get through a particularly difficult time in high school. Your music means more to me than I can put into mere words.

I used a composite of many photographs as a drawing reference. The rain effect is inspired by rain depiction in ukiyo-e art.

PROFILE PICS

I get bored with my default images so I try to switch it up every other week by coloring in my selfies. To reduce the amount of work, I resized each image to a 200 x 200 pixel square. I pressed on the I-key and hovered the cursor over a specific patch of color, which matched it to the “Set foreground color” swatch on my Toolbar. Then filled it in with my Brush Tool, flattening out the pixelated details to one color. This technique gave the drawing a stained glass window effect of colors.

HALLOWEEN-THEMED

I did these back in October with a similar technique but I didn’t use a photo as reference. I borrowed another drawing (a much more cartoony portrait of myself), cropped it to a slightly bigger square, and drew myself in two other costumes. I really adore the pumpkin one.

A GIFT

I drew this as a present for Mike’s parents when we went to visit them in Florida for Thanksgiving and to express my gratitude for their hospitality. Their house is full of family pictures because his parents love photographing themselves in different locales (and in matching outfits!) so I decided to make a fun, adorable caricature of each family member, including Mike.

I plan to do more of these shitty little drawings.

The first two are part of a weird ongoing saga between my cousin Kelly and me.

I haven’t had decent Chinese food in months. I went back to the Bay to visit for a weekend but my family just ate Thai food the entire time. >:^( Now I’m just “dreaming of dim sum.” Little glistening shrimp dumplings, turnip cakes, and fung zao dancing a la Beauty and the Beast into my mouth.

The face was inspired by this “hungry anime eyes” image.
