so i dunno if it's the weather changing or a cold but i've been in a bit of a slump.
i've done a few commissions which could also be a factor because it's a little tricky moving from the mindset of i have to do this cause i'm being paid even if its something i would normally never do to one of i need to do this cause if i don't i will explode..
either way i just haven't been terribly motivated and i've slid into a bit of a slump.
however i'm a firm believer in the is no excuse not to draw so do something... do anything... so i tend to do pages of one specific thing or studies.
this time i did another page of chibis
i specifically did them based on characters or outfits that had only ever been drawn once (cept estelle who is now part of a series which i will finish... eventually)
(based on this) as an experiment.
now the original piece was actually an assignment for class.
we had to draw inspiration from one of our classmates pieces.
My friend had this piece and i wanted to emulate the way she produced her art which at the time was to do the line art and colour seperately and them mrge them together in photoshop.
she did it amazingly well, my attempt was not as good as any of her pieces but it was still a lot of fun to try.
the point was to do something new.
so when i did this chibi i knew i needed to again try something new with it.
so i did a one layer paintign with a huge fuzzy brush.
i should clarify that the lines are on another layer....
so... here are the lines
anyways finished piece.
and yes she is loosely based off the part of the little mermaid where the prince doesn't pick her and she starts turning into seafoam... i figured her heart would turn first since it was broken. i think my sick/slumpy mood made me wanna draw something cute but still a little sad.
in happier news wavy hair is pretty fun to do... i'm glad i changed my mind on her hairstyle from sketch to finish
anyways i really hope you like it as it was a lot of fun.... i think i need to go have some nyquil and ger some rest...
