Good day to you ladies and gents and welcome to the 6th edition of How I Feel In Pictures. In these posts I’ll upload a piece of art that I’ve drawn that basically represents how I feel at that current point in time. These days I’m in a strange point in my life where I’m totally excited for the future in terms of my dream career, however, I’m not in the best of places in my life either, so I’m glad that I have my art to help keep me together in times of crisis.
Check out my latest picture below:
“You’re Too Slow!” That quote never gets old.
As you can see above, I’ve drawn another Sonic picture. I’m a massive Sonic fan and since this video game character is the main reason I draw, I always end up coming back to him as a source for my drawing. I’ve been doing a lot of work on Adobe Photoshop since the summer and I’ve been trying to find ways to make my pictures better by experimenting with colour and lighting, and I feel like I’m finally making some progress in that department. Getting the right colours for Sonic has been a very important element of the colouring process and I feel like this is my most complete digital piece of art so far. While I’m still not too sure about the lighting and shadows, for a first time effort I do think it’s half bad.
And like my picture back in How I Feel In Pictures #4, this current picture is based on an old sketch. Have a look below:
As you can see, the main line work from the original to the new version is pretty much the same with a few variations here and there. The old sketch on the right is one I did back in 2007 and after seeing the picture in an old sketchbook I thought I’d upgrade it.
All in all I think it is a success and I’m looking forward to making more technical stuff in Photoshop in the near future. Thanks for reading yo 😀
