Subject title: DRaff210's Sketchbook

It's been a few months... time to fix that. 8-)

Portrait of a female prunus-type sylvan, which includes trees like cherries, peaches, and almonds.

Two of my characters; I've named them Benji and Mira. Passionflowers are crazy awesome.

Two of my more recurring characters, Roscoe (big guy) and Rudy (little guy). Both of them play a different type of lute; Roscoe plays the theorbo, and Rudy plays the oud.


Something I painted for my mom for Mother's Day.

Happy Mother's Day - No Text.png

A pair of loose paintings for gay pride, both female and male versions. (The violets in the doe version are commonly called "lesbian flowers," and the calamus grass in the stag version represents male love.)

Miscellaneous sketchbook things.




And finally, just a quick glance at some of the progress I've made. I still often feel super insecure about my art, but looking back on the progress I've made definitely makes me feel better. I think it's a good thing to do every now and again. :)

Roscoe holding a magic sunstone. I've been practicing methods of painting without relying on any blend modes (multiply, overlay, etc.) and I'm very happy with how this particular piece came out. :D I only used the hard round brush here, so it's basically devoid of texture, but I like the rough look in any case.

An adolescent male sylvan. Poor little guy's antlers don't seem to be growing in right.

More of Roscoe; it was meant to be mostly painting practice, so I think his pose looks a little weird. But I think I've improved a good bit in two years, anyhow.



I also forgot to mention that I subscribed to Schoolism a few months ago. These paintings were the first assignment of Painting with Light and Color with Dice Tsutsumi and Robert Kondo; I'm really excited to learn more!
