Thanks a lot everyone!

I've been doing these google maps virtual plein air stuff recently.

I've been doing some portrait studies from photos. I still find portraits very challenging.

Those commissions look great.
That bunker room looks like something from a point and click game.

I did a lot of thumbs with small variations of the above piece because I was unhappy with it until I settled on the final composition.

Someone posted this in a discord server: The Drawing Database which is a youtube channel with videos on drawing fundamentals. I'm very interested in the ones focused on anatomy.

Mermay stuff. I don't plan to do it every day.


I enjoyed exploring a manatee merfella but I decided not to go further.

I started drawing on drawpile more.

I really like roleplaying on drawpile with drawings. It's making me think about expressiveness of gestures and faces. I wanted to see if I could make my characters have easier to read acting.

I like your BG work. Mermay design looks unique. Doing good expressions.

The scaling here is something I messed up on. I've been trying to be more careful in my recent work but I find it difficult.

I've been participating in artfight and it's a really enjoyable experience for me I think because I like participating in group challenges. I've been doing a lot of background work(which I can't show...) so it's really fun to make time to draw people.
