How I Feel In Pictures #9

Howdy to you ladies and gents and welcome to the 9th 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. I can’t believe its been over a year since the last time I posted some of my artwork on this blog, but I guess life just got in the way and I forgot, but I’ve got something new to show off so let’s get started! 🙂

Check out my latest picture below:

Princess Rosalina, my lady in the Mario series. 😀

Above we have the latest form of art, Princess Rosalina first introduced in Super Mario Galaxy and well-known for her subsequent appearances in Mario spin-off games and Super Smash Bros. 4 too. For me I love the lady because she has a little more depth to her than the other princesses, plus she has an elegance and air of mystery about her that fascinates me. In addition to that she’s pretty and with the space setting it makes her a great subject for fan art, and this picture I’ve been working on for the last few weeks was born out of a post I reworked for this character, which was drawn on paper and then updated on Photoshop. This picture almost didn’t happen since my laptop has been giving me so much grief with the constant slow down, freezing and crashing as well, I was ready to sink into a sea of madness but I got it finished a few days ago and I’m proud. Honestly I work hard on most of illustration, but rarely does my work turn out the way I want it to, but I feel with my current skill set that I’ve done as much as I can with this and I think it’s pretty good. 😀

Well that’s it for this blog post, hopefully you liked what you saw and if you’d like to see more check me out at http://thehypersonic55.deviantart.com. Peace out!

How I Feel In Pictures #8

Good day to you ladies and gents and welcome to the 8th 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. So this is the first post of 2015 for this series, and since I’ve drawn some new stuff I thought I’d post on this blog.

Check out my set of pictures below:

PowerPuff Girls

Gotta love the PPG.

Charizard-Rises-compressor

My all-time favourite Pokemon here looking all badass.

So as you can see above these pictures are fan art based on the cartoon show, The Powerpuff Girls and video game series, Pokemon. I drew the picture of Bubbles, Blossom and Buttercup based on an old sketch I did from I think around 11 years ago, and since I was feeling a bit fancy I wanted to update it on Photoshop and this was the end result. As for Charizard, I drew a little picture of him in my mini sketchbook and thought that it would look good in colour with a background, and well, what you see above is the end result.

Both pictures represent a piece of me nostalgically. PPG was one of my all-time favourite cartoons from Cartoon Network, while Pokemon was pretty much the phenomenon that took over my world with the video games and TV show. Both pictures also represent, decent, if somewhat lacking pieces of work. I look at them and think, “Yeah they’re good, but I know I could do better. I expect better.” They feel incomplete and maybe that’s me expecting more from myself then I technically can deliver at the moment, but hey what would life be like without a little challenge. I think the way I feel in through these pictures can be summarized as proud and yet disappointed at the same time.

Well that’s it for this blog post, hopefully you liked what you saw and if you’d like to see more check me out at http://thehypersonic55.deviantart.com. Peace out!

How I Feel In Pictures #7

Good day to you ladies and gents and welcome to the 7th 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. I hope you’ve had a great and productive Christmas, today is Boxing Day, I’m bored, so I’m here to give you a blog post of happiness haha. This time we have a few that I’ve bunched together.

Check out my set of pictures below:

Latest Sketches

So here we have some of the art I’ve been working on from October to December.

As you can see above, there are for pictures. from left to right, the first is of Goku in Super Saiyan 3 form from Dragon Ball Z, then there’s Princess Rosalina from Super Mario Galaxy, on the bottom left we have Kirby of Nintendo dressed up as Ichigo Kurosaki from Bleach and finally we have Sonic and Tails from the Sonic the Hedgehog series. If you go from bottom to top you can see that the amount of detail has improved somewhat and while it is looking good so far, I know that my Photoshop skills can get better, that they can improved and become super powerful. All of these pictures I did on my computer, but they’re all based on pen and pencil sketches which you can see below:

Sketch Originals

As you can see above, these are the original pieces of art, some look prettier than others and they were all drawn at different times, on from 2006/7, another from 2010 and two from 2014. I drew all of these with the intention of making them better, more finished-looking pieces of work and now this year I feel like I’ve done it. I have many more sketches that I want to upgrade into digital work which you’ll probably see in near future so kee your eyes peeled.

Thanks for reading and checking out my artwork yo. If you wish to see more of my artwork be sure to head to thehypersonic55.deviantart.com to see more. Until the next time, laters! 😀

How I Feel In Pictures #6

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:

Sonic Again6

“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:

Sonic Again Upgrade

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 😀

How I Feel In Pictures #5

Good day to you ladies and gents and welcome to the 5th 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. I can tell you now that I am feeling good at this point in time, while nothing special is going on in my life, during Sunday and Monday I had two days off of work and I’ve been enjoying my free time and during that freedom I had a moment of inspiration to draw and the end result is below.

Check it out below:

10504950_10152192648180755_8692651423825222752_o

Now say it with me people: “I AM GROOT! 😀

As you can see above, I’ve drawn Groot from Marvel Studios’ Guardians of the Galaxy, you may ask, “What brought this on?” Well, after watching GotG for the third time in the cinema last week I really got back into the groove with the film and then started listening to the Awesome Mix Vol. (the great collection of songs from the film) and I just thought to myself that I just had to draw one of my favourite characters from the film. I was just going to do a cool sketch in my new notebook, but then I brought the pen into play and started going hard with the detail. I feel like I did a job considering that I wasn’t drawing at my normal A4 size of paper. Here’s a comparison between the original image and my sketch.

Groot-sketch-comparison

It is definitely a not as close in terms of placement of certain body parts, but again this wasn’t a very long sketch so I do like how it turned out. In the end, I love Groot, most people love Groot and I just wanted to show my love by drawing him. Sometimes I do surprise myself when I draw because I never know how far I can go, especially on such a small-scale like this. This is definitely the start of many GotG pictures to come yo! 😀

How I Feel In Pictures #4

Good day to you ladies and gents and welcome to the 4th 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. Well I’m feeling decent at the moment, work has been murder but in between all of that chaos I’ve been all creative in my head and felt like making stuff all the time and my latest piece of work is something simple, yet affective.

Check it out below:

Mordecai

Yeah it’s Mordecai from Regular Show!

As some of you may know I got my laptop back this week, but what I didn’t mention was how most of my programs were erased which meant that I had to obtain all of them all over again, including Adobe Photoshop. Luckily I’m back in the groove and over the last two days I made this, a picture of Mordecai from Regular Show which was an update from a sketch I did in my notebook ages ago. Check it out below:

Mordecai's Upgrade

As you can see it pretty similar but very different at the same time. I do like the way this picture turned out but I also feel like more could be done, I guess now is as good a time as any to experiment and get things to look as fancy as possible, probably will mess around shading and colour layering or something. 😛

In conclusion I feel like this is the start of something, hopefully this one picture will create a snowball effect and I’ll start doing more art on a consistent basis. Plus I wanna do more Regular Show stuff because I love that cartoon so much! 😀

How I Feel In Pictures #3

Good day to you ladies and gents and welcome to the 3rd 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. Its been bloody ages since the last time I did one of these posts, but I have had a lot of stuff to do and not much time to draw. But today I had a moment of inspiration and I got sketching.

So here’s my latest picture:

20140612_163555

So yeah for those uninformed, this is Mario, Mega Man, Sonic and Pac-Man of the video game franchises Super Mario, Mega Man, Sonic the Hedgehog and Pac-Man.

Recently Nintendo did something amazing during this year’s E3 and revealed that gaming icon, Pac-Man, would be joining Super Smash Bros. on Wii U and 3DS. Loads of people hoped it would happen, many said it would happen and there were rumours aplenty suggesting he would eventually make it into the game, but to see it obviously confirmed from Nintendo just sent the gaming community into a frenzy. Smash Bros. was already gonna be one of the biggest games of the year and those people at Nintendo just keep finding ways to make the game better. For me it is just insane to see these four titans of gaming in one place, never would I have thought this would have happened when I saw a kid in the 90’s. Seems like Nintendo knows its fan base and knows how to treat these 3rd party characters better than the companies that own them. 😛

screen-2

Anyways I knew once this became news I had to draw something. While the picture doesn’t look as badass as I had pictured it in my head, at the same time it looks better than I expected. I’ve never drawn Pac-Man or Mega Man before, so I’m happy with the way they turned out, especially Mega Man. Drawing this was actually pretty hard as I ended up redrawing the poses for Mario, Sonic and Mega Man a few types over, especially Mega Man, he was bloody hard to do properly.

In conclusion I’m in a good place right now, Smash Bros. has me in a good groove and I like the feeling haha. This will hopefully be the start of several picture dedicated to these icons because I’m in too good a mood about Pac-Man’s inclusion in Smash Bros. 4 to not draw more.
