2017 end of the year art survey

Here is my annual end of the year art survey, month by month my best or favorite pieces. I guess I technically drew every month but they were commissions or sketches or just too ugly to spotlight, haha. I didn’t have a very good year in terms of improving technique, but I drew a lot of okayish videogame fanart for conventions, a lot of inktober pieces and that’s all right. Next year, if I ever get my computer fixed, I want to focus on anatomy of hands, doing traditional inking with sumi-e and calligraphy and just really taking my coloring/rendering to the next level. But if things don’t work out drawing-wise, which is likely, I may do something else with video editing and crafting instead! We’ll see…

inktober 2017 continued [fanart]

Now here are some of the halfway decent fanart pieces I drew during Inktober, which I technically finished by the way! I drew something from almost start to finish every day, even if some things were adding to a previous piece, lol. I did enjoy fiddling with traditional media, not only ink but pencil, markers and white-out, and feel ready to get back in the game some day!

Inktober 2017 progress [original]

I am also doing some inktober stuff but due to my work schedule, I haven’t actually drawn the themes I wanted to. Here are some of my original characters and concepts which I liked.

more Tales of series fanart [fanart]

I started these “Tales of” series bust drawings for button badges in March of last year, with a few of the better waist-up figures making their way into prints and bookmarks. Here are a few that I was super proud of! Be sure to buy them as buttons here!
