It seems that the next big character to gain the spotlight in the upcoming 3rd Kung Fu Panda film may be receiving some drastic changes from what we may have last heard of them...

Birthday present for :iconabilee94:! 


Birthday Present for aflfangirl 94! Whom I know is a Loki-fangirl and peacock-lover like myself. So I knew I had to draw this piece of the Norse God of Mischief as a green peacock. I decided on the Icy Background in order to harken back to the Land of the Frost Giants. Granted its probably not accurate. But I guess in the end I did want to romanticise it a bit. Having the light blues contrast the waker body of the peacock. But doing this allowed me to study extra. Such as researching snowy environments, watching Loki related videos, and observing his costume. I am now more familiar with the contours of this man’s helmet than I am my own mother’s face.

I made sure I had plenty of time to do this piece. The rough sketch for this alone took perhaps two days. Then of course as you’ll see in the video's description, this is the longest time its taken me to do a speedpaint; At 5 hours and 8 minutes!! But it was so satisfying to have it done. Once it was over I went downstairs and had some bloody good TV watching and I’d washed my bedsheets. I didn't get my the until 8 or 9 o clock that night because of how long the whole thing took. Went to bed with a smile on my face. Finally I could relax!

Yokai Process

Final Piece Here!


Just decided to upload this for the hell of it to show the process. Not much to say apart from you can see how I decided against the more realistic proportions in the pencil and then going to the inks. And I'm still comfortable to do the backgrounds separately from the subjects. I always find it a little fun to observe the flat colours from the final ones. In pretty much any comic style piece. 

Be sure to check out the speed paint video to see it in motion!

(This looks MUCH better when you click it to full view. Trust me!)

My attempt at drawing Yokai from Big Hero 6. I purchased the movie recently, along with the art book and Disney Golden book. I cant put them down. I hope to do an analysis of the movie, but I knew I really wanted to draw Yokai. Since he is one of my favourite characters.

Ive been feeling self conscious about my work and I knew I should expand my range, try out new compositions and make get back to what Im’ comfortable with.So Ive gone back to a very comic book style of line-art. Which figures, given he’s a super-villain. I started off taking a photo of one of my DC figures from a certain angle and then using that as reference for this. Then I realised I didn't just want to make it blank. So I drew him staring atop of the San Franksokyo Institute of Technology with a cherry blossom tree and a little bit of the city in the back all set with a twilight sky.

Im still unsure as to whether I’m satisfied with it or not. But I’ll just put it down to my skills at this point, as there is nothing more I can do with this one.

Hope you guys like!

So I’ve just competed watching the amazing mini-series “Over the Garden Wall”, and of course, me being me, I was keen on the Peacocks shown 
roaming Quincy Endicott’s manor in episode 5. I especially like the stylish way the white peacock was coloured. So I took it upon myself to draw a peacock using that colour scheme. If I only knew what I was letting myself in for.

I’ve known from my experience that peacocks are notoriously hard to draw and having very complicated anatomy. So, I should have known that the colouring process would be so difficult and tedious. Whether it be the details and then having to do so much for the eye-spots. As you can read in the video description, for such a simple piece, this took the longest to complete in one go! Hence why I decided against a background, I was just worn out. That and I felt I should draw more emphasis on the peacock itself. But thank god I decided to use the "white" peacock as reference. A normal coloured would have been an even bigger pain! XD I think it’s kind of inevitable that I’ll be doing different coloured ones in the future. I’m the dozy bugger whose decided to based her comic series around them! With different characters requiring different colour schemes and features! What the fuck have I gotten myself into?!?! LOL!

But y’know, for these awesome birds, it’s worth it. I’m so glad that Ive finally done a full body piece and I only hope to do better from here.

Hope you all like it! :)

PS. It also helps that I could hear the neighbouring farms peacock calling while I was doing this. ^^

Indee, but the Chinese trailer was better, I've uploaded my reaction to it on YouTube. :)

Yeah I saw the Chinese trailer too! It was so epic. I don't know how I feel about Kai. I just don't think anyone could ever top Shen.

Indeed. Going on the comments of my reaction video. It seems like alot of us have been feeling the same way.

Sorry for the late reply. So busy and plenty of technical difficulties to put up with.
