Old Stuff - Angel Quinn

This is another one of these that goes into the "remake it but BETTER someday" category:

I drew this anonymous ginger here as an angel years ago. I think she came from somewhere...

Another take on Hula Girl, as well as an earlier Hula Girl piece

This is a citified version of a certain character of an artist I like. He does some pretty good work, and has done it that good for a pretty long time. This particular character, named Hula Girl, I don't think he draws often (at least it SEEMS that way).

I have said for a pretty long time that I was not to draw her unless I made some improvement in my drawings. Not just drawing hands decently for a change or some decent sideview, but NOTICEABLE improvement. Well, uh, I did draw her, but not because I've gotten better. Hell, I have a long ways to go as it is, but it was out of boredom:

Well, it's... alright for a first attempt at her. Stuff looks... there.

Well, after that, a friend of mine, he went and inked it, and I colored that and added some more stuff in...

As far as coloring goes... well, the shading was done with burn and dodge. Yep. Burn and dodge. It's... well, I really want to do some decent cel-shading someday, but as it stands, I can't right now.

But, l like how this was inked. I even used part of a photograph as the background.

I don't know when I'll draw her again, but I hope it's soon, and I hope to do a damn fine job, too.

Miss Bee

I posted these on my FA page the other day, and well, I want to explain.

Well, this is how I want to draw Bee from now on. Bee is one of my characters, and she's... well, there were certain things about her that I went too far with back when I was on DA. Since getting rid of her entirely was NOT an option for me, the least I could do was tone her down a bit... QUITE a bit.

Well, I upped her age by about five years and made her a teacher. That oughta tone her down! Besides, as fun as it was to do all that crap with her back when I was on DA, it came at the expense of trying to get my drawings better, something that I really wanted to do all along. Eh, I'm still trying and all that...

So, where to begin with this idea? She's a teacher at the high school in her town, and... um, hijinks ensue. I wish I planned this out further, and I'm going to do that, too.

...the whole "starting a second blog" thing didn't work out as well as I had hoped, and now it's gone. I folded all the posts I made there into this one.

New crud soon... maybe.
