New character... of sorts. I finally got the Neopet I'd always wanted -- UC Tyrannian Techo -- and here he is. :'D He's not really a character I intend to rp or write about, I just. He's just my little floofy chirpy dino baby. ;3;

I used a really interesting technique here. I love linearting with pencil, and I love coloring with watercolor pencils. The two don't really mix well, because as you use water to spread the watercolor, you mess up the graphite pencil too. So- what I did here was first sketch and lineart the picture and scan it, then start coloring it without caring about preserving the lines. Then, I scanned the colored picture and overlapped the earlier scan of the lineart on a multiply layer in Photoshop. Aligning it was a bit of a pain, but I do think the result is the best traditionally-colored picture I've ever done. :boogie:

(Recently all my pictures are titled after the name of the character on them... Hooray, creativity.)

Eris by Roqi
Eris
There is peace in the eye of the hurricane.

hurricane = chaos, chaos Goddess = peace, geddit?

Hail Eris!

Not my best work, but whatever, I enjoyed making it. I discovered a new technique during it, too. See those neat strands, with separate super thin hairs? I didn't draw them separately, but rather crushed small pieces of charcoal into tiny crumbs, then smudged them over the paper with my finger. It works almost like a Photoshop hair brush lol.

Uh, five hours, I think. Charcoal.

Hey. Hey. So. I know I've been terribly inactive. There are a few reasons for that, and I'll list them -- not as excuses, but as explanations.

- I can't draw because I'm trying to rest my hand.
- Looking at others' art and talking about it makes me wanna draw, and that's sad and frustrating.
- I'm generally, how to say it, put off by dA. I dislike their recent choices and policies and I want to be part of this community less and less.
- And, well, I guess, just a shift in interests.

So yeah. I'm sorry for not commenting on your wonderful artwork as much as I used to. I still look at it all...!

Every time I go to dA to look up some art, I nearly type what I meant to search for into the Status Update box. Every time. Some interesting statuses nearly happened.
Oh my god deviantart, why did you decide you want to be facebook AND tumblr at the same time instead of yourself?

HELLO, THIS IS HAGGIS

*falls over* I replied to the herb garden roleplay, in case you wanted to know ;w;

*sobs* I'm sorry I'm such a horrible, not-alive roleplay partner. I'm trying to be more active. ;w;
