Hachi has been in my head for 6 years. I guess its time to get him out there. I hope for your continued support ❤ Check him out at TAPAS! Click his banner above to get to him or click here .

Marikit’s Wonderland

I am a artist and I know that my blog should reflect it completely. So with watercolors, I created this picture of me and my dog zemo (in humanform) in manga style to show who I am. The design of that art was loosely based on Alice in Wonderland therfore making it my own little fantasy world.

If you want to know how this was created jump down to the cut.

Collab 001: Space Samurai

I wanted to practice my inking and learn a lot more about it so I asked if I can collaborate with a good artist on FB- Buko Fernando. He does nice sketches and he called for Art Jam  and I responded  by telling him I will ink one of his lovely sketches. He came up with this lady:

Buko Fernando's Sketch

Sketch by Buko Fernando

I love how dynamic this sketch was, though rough, I can see a lot of potential in it. So I set to work and inked it traditionally.

Space Samurai Inking Attempt #1

Space Samurai Inking Attempt #1

This is my first attempt in inking her. Pretty good for a first time but I see a lot of mistakes and i know it will not be as dynamic as I hoped it would be colored. >.>  I felt that she was also lacking in form and detail when I started coloring, and even if this was a good enough effort, i found myself wanting more.  So she got scrapped.

 

 

Failed coloring. >.>

Failed coloring. >.>

I also hated how she looked colored. >.> the ink was smearing all over the place and the background didn’t give me much room to improve it. Sad to say, she needed to be redone. In all honesty, I was about to give up on her but thank God I didn’t because I came up with something better.

Space Samurai Inking #2

Space Samurai Inking #2

This is the 2nd attempt at inking this baby. More details, tighter inks and space for the SPACE background. Loosely indicated where things should be and will draw in the details as I color.. I hope I don’t mess up. XD

LESSON LEARNED.  Never give up on something. Keep on going even if it means redoing things because the more you do it, the better you become at it. Keep going, believe in yourself.

I myself am still not a perfect artist nor am I perfect in inking or coloring. But I persevere and am patienly practicing to be better.

Next up, coloring this babe!
