Yearly update?

It's been nearly a year since I last posted, probably about 6 months since I last looked at this blog, but I feel an update  is perhaps due. I have no idea if anyone still even visits this blog, but oh well.

I've pretty much left Stardoll now. For a few years I only really stayed for the clubs and the people i'd met there, but restrictions on the posting capabilities there caused many people to leave all together.

I'm now a few months away from starting my final year of school, which is pretty exciting; I'll most likely be beginning university applications in about June, and at the moment I am considering a course involving art; perhaps animation.

In terms of art I have certainly progressed since the work I posted here. It's not graphics anymore, but mainly traditional and digital paintings.

E.g.


I do love a good bit of fan art.
Im still grateful for the years I spent on Stardoll. Without them I most likely would never have taken up art again and then who knows what path i'd currently be going down.

And that's pretty much it. Perhaps i'll update again in 2014, as i'm preparing to go to university.

If you do want to contact me though, the best links would be my deviantart; mangosurprise.deviantart.com or my tumblr; thisurlisunavailable.tumblr.com

It's been a long long time

Far too long actually. I did get a new tablet though! I paid the money and got a Wacom.

But I doubt i'll return to stardoll graphics. Creating them was a very good learning curve, and it helped me discover that I actually really do enjoy art. Even to the point where I now have my heart set on being an Animator. I may post some regular artwork, and you never know; maybe a graphic, but I feel fairly safe to say that my time creating stardoll graphics is over.


If, by chance, anyone would like to keep up with my artwork, I try to regularly updated my deviantart at mangosurprise.deviantart.com

Artpad


Just thought i'd post this, it's a painting on an online programme called Artpad. It took me about 30 minutes maybe? Artpad is O.K, but i wouldn't really recommend it if you're looking to create good pieces of work. There's only really brushes and opacity to work with; and again i've still not found my tablet pen, I miss it!

No tablet graphic





still no pen! :( But i made a graphic regardless. Well; i absolutely love the pose on this one, the shading especially, but after finishing the graphic i don't really like it. It just looks amateurish, as if i've taken it from i-dressup and stuck a blurry face on it. Well you can decide which you prefer for yourself.

My mum lost my tablet pen

*dies*
Considering 90% of the graphics on this blog weren't made with a tablet, it's amazing how quickly you forget how to make graphics with a laptop mouse. So there'll be no graphics for a while; maybe some ramblings.

but follow my tumblr! utterpwnage.tumblr.com

Graphics tutorial

I decided to make another graphics tutorial for my youtube channel youlovelouise so i thought i'd post a link here. the graphic itself isn't the best, but it was done in 50 minutes, and i had to cut a lot of the video out.

And here's the graphic the tutorial is of;

A practice at poses

I've got no idea what i want to do with this graphic, but i wanted to practice drawing poses from the top of my head, because i'm awful at drawing them! This headless model has some booty on her. The hands are messed up but i've never been good at them.
