I’m working on a costume commission and it’s eating up all my free time, so here are silhouettes I worked on for the character design class. Of course, that was before I gave up and drew a ~sexy~shapely~waitress because the teacher couldn’t see a muscular girl as attractive.
damn reblogging things to my art blog instead of my inspiration blog.
Reminder since I have like a hundred new followers (welcome <3) :
I didn’t want to post those but I have no new things to show you (will scan new drawings tonight, though. Yay! traditional!).
Character design class, I fought with the teacher A LOT because we had to draw “a pin-up” (how bad is that? :/ seriously). I gave up and drew what he wanted in the end, I was weak, heh.
SO. I didn’t think I’d get such an answer from just posting this comic online.
First, a big thank you to everybody who reblogged/tweeted/wrote about it somewhere. I’m glad you felt something reading it!
Thanks a lot, also, new followers :) Hi, I guess? I’m Fanou, I mostly draw band people and dumb comics. I’m in animation school and I rant about that a lot, too, sorry.
I’ve read often now that the cursive I used is difficult to read for some people, and for that I’m sorry. In my country, cursive is what we use in letters, and that’s pretty much the only font I can manage to draw properly. My first drafts were all capitalized and they looked so awful I switched back to my usual writing style. I will put a transcript online in a few minutes for those who can’t read, I just had no idea it would be this challenging (every french person who read it never said a word about the writing, it didn’t even cross my mind)
I’ve also seen comments (on my blog, even, woa) made about my “willpower” and how I was “overreacting”. To these people, I’d like to answer that : I’m a very aggressive player on the board, and probably in life as well. I quit because I was abused, and that was the end for me. I hope you realize that there’s still a problem when most girls decide to stop playing around 15/16 when boys just keep on doing fine.
I’d probably still be playing in a club like last year if I hadn’t gone to a new school that doesn’t allow me to have hobbies, heh.
I won’t address comments like these any further, because I know the language barrier will trick me at one point or another and I have troubles expressing myself properly.
Sorry this post is so long (open images in new window for better quality, tumblr apparently decided to butcher them :().
I don’t really have proper words for this thing, just that it’s about something very important in my life, and after ten years, I’m glad I could finally write this.
Magnus is a great opportunity for the chess world to evolve a little bit : he’s young, he’s charismatic, and he’s got a great public image. I’m really glad that he won, even though his opponent (Vishy Anand) is a fantastic and lovable player as well.
I know this “letter” will not reach him, but it wasn’t really written for him. For other players, yes, I guess? I’m sad that I don’t have much friends left in chess so I can’t give that to the community. So this is for you, comics/illustration lovers from tumblr <3
EDIT : TRANSCRIPT FOR THOSE WHO CAN’T READ CURSIVE!
I said before I wouldn’t draw any Suede members because I didn’t have the skills, here’s the proof.
Hi everybody! My classmates & I have started a blog, it features drawings from cool people (=us of course) on a theme. THis week’s theme (I think? Not sure it’s going to be a weekly thing) is beards.
We’re also trying to have fashionable colors. Like, super trendy gradients & everything. (please tell me I succeeded).
Anyway! Follow us! It’s a joke but it’s still cool art!
Today school was pretty awful so I drew the lead singer of one of the bands I saw yesterday. They’re called Temples, they opened for Suede, and I liked his glittery clothes and make-up. Liked their music a lot as well!
And here’s the character I’m trying to draw. They’re supposed to be a drag-queen, but the teacher isn’t too happy with the idea so I’m keeping their shoulder wide enough to be male or female :)
you have no idea how long this thing took me. I’m never, ever, ever, ever again doing a turn-around of a weird contraposto pose like this. (The first frame is my original design with no real volume so it’s wonky) (and also I’ll be adding colors later)
How are you guys? Hopefully, fine!
