I am very delighted with my progress in digital illustration. If you’ve been following my journey, you’d see my baby steps. Can’t say I expert now, of course, I have so many things to learn from the pros. But at least, I’m already gettin the hang of it.

it has 4 moods coz I can’t choose which one, but I love all ’em.

Digital Art: Drew My Anxiety

I was experiencing yet occasional bouts of my anxiety, which I have been working on since I begun being intentional about my growth. These 2 images came about; the first was hopeful, the 2nd is fighting for light and darkness — in style!

I used these emotions of mine in my illustrations. Sometimes, I don’t have anything in mind, and copying other artists is illegal [at least for me], so here I have a source.

PS: As I write, I’m at peace. Thank God.

Digital Art: Playing Video Games

Captioned: “AΒ Couple who plays video games together stays together.” — is it? : )

This was my first time to make a background for my digital drawing. I was exploring different kinds of blending in Medibang and just found out the nitty-gritty of making shadows, reflections, light, and fine details. Still not refined though, and there are some inconsistencies — but I enjoy the process.

 

 

By the way, this was my first submission in my DEVIAN ART profile. : )

Digital Art: Face Painting Practice

So I did. I know how to draw a face in traditional paper and pencil, but oh, boy, it’s overwhelming in digital, but sooner, and with more conscious learning, I’ll get the hang of it!!

At first, I thought It was fine, but leaving this drawing away and seeing it again now [this was 4 days ago actually], I can naturally point out the flaws, such as the crooked jawlines, uneven eyes, and the shadowing and blending [since I wanted it to be realistic].

yeah, it’s funny how the OG princess came after as an evil Scrooge! haha.

will update this drawing… so I can check on my progress. πŸ™‚

Digital Art: Dog’s love

I’ve been illustrating Dogs and Hooman these days. And what can I do, I love my pets babies, and I love seeing #doglovers.

I rarely draw animals coz it ain’t my forte, but when I think of my love for my dogs and the love I got from the, it’s magic, indeed.

Digital Art: Strong Woman

Ohh I love colors these days!

woman3

And I have to. IRL, I’d loved darker and neutral hues but I have to make a shift when it comes to digital illustrations. You see, the more colorful and vibrant the colors, the more it catches people’s attention, especially the internet as the main platform. I ain’t saying dark colors are bad, but bright colors stand out among the many, and so is a brave woman!

Tools: Medibang Paint Pro, Ugee Graphics Tablet, lots of love! Exploring clipping layers.

Digital Art: Dog’s Letter for You

I often heard the maxim that we don’t deserve dogs. — I cannot contest against that, I think it’s completely true.

This illustration was a previous work My Doggo,Β and this time, I edited it using CorelDraw / Corel Graphics Suite which made the image into vectors. So to say, the image was polished, the crooked lines look straight, and color blending became decent. : )

I hope I can have Corel Draw in a long haul, but I have to admit that it’s expensive for me (500 dollars!!) to purchase for now. So I only have trial versions; nonetheless, I can abuse it for 15 days! πŸ™‚

Digital Art: Boss / Strong Women

Who doesn’t want to be a happy 😊 #bossΒ ? though I usedΒ #girlboss, I rarely go for it IRL because personally, a BOSS can be both men&women, so why the gender label? πŸ˜‰πŸ’

A boss can be anyone who stands out touchin lives amidst all odds. Salute yall great people across races and gender.
