  • Listening to: My stomach growling
"Yay! BOS is back!" I said...two days ago.

Since then:
- Started something I thought would be a nice warm up
- Halfway through: realized it was totally awful
- Spent hours agonizing over it trying to figure out what was wrong
- J/k spent hours being frustrated that it was so wrong
- Finally did what I should have done in the first place and drew a screencap redraw of sorts that took all of twenty minutes.
- Didn't bother fighting with the scanner that night because Exhausted.
- Tried fighting with the scanner the next day. See: above hours of frustration.
- Post the crappy picture anyway.
- Day 2 and 3: rinse and repeat.

I was looking forward to this as being a good way to improve on how I'd done last year... But I seem to only remind myself my talents (apparently) lie in copying others' work. IE, I can redraw anime screenshots very very well. But try to reference something more nuanced, or draw the scenes in my head, and basics go out the window.

It's times like this when I really wish I had a teacher. That I had someone who drew much better who could mentor me on how to get better and what my eye was missing in something to correct it and make it better. You can watch how-to videos and have all these references to practice from, but it still feels like there's no replacement for that mentorship and encouragement. Considering I haven't taken an art class since middle school, it's been actually very odd to realize I'm around 90% self-taught.

I'm...honestly not sure where I'm going with this. Just feeling very disheartened, and my emotional state the past few days hasn't been the greatest, so I'm sure that (and some poor sleep) is contributing.

Venom Duckie
So because it's been a while and I'm tired of not having posted something for BOS...here's another duckie! La la la la  Incomplete! :( Due to lack of proper marker color... I've started on two others (I was hoping to have Cye up before moving to a Warlord duckie, because I wanted them to be a surprise), but alas, they too suffer from the same fate. :cries:

I swear, color, one day I will have my revenge...! :shakefist:

On other notes--I had fun with this one! His helmet was a unique twist to draw out lol. And I'm getting better with the two tone colors! :D And I kinda really like the eyeshadow touch on this one... I dunno, it just made me think how all the Warlords feel way more unique and varied in their characters and history than the Ronin do. Each one has a very particularly unique characteristic--moreso than the guys--that's mostly tied into their history. They're an awesomely quirky bunch and the more I'm involved in the fandom the more I come to appreciate them. :heart: ...[ramble over] >.> :XD:

(I'll edit this with a new image when it gets finished... >.>

You're welcome! Your stock and reference material are a much-needed resource--I know I certainly make a lot of use of it. (Or, I will, once I start drawing more often than I am now!)
