Circus Circuit


The track is inspired by the Funhouse course from Pacman World Rally and the karts are inspired by the karts from Crash Team Racing.

Time Town


Weeeeeeeeellllll. . . . . it's actually a city but Time Town has a better ring to it.

Learning Sky Drawing


L - S - D

Dead Ed


About three weeks ago, I bought my first drawing pens and started my first ink drawings. You can find the post for the drawings here. I drew two cartoon characters, the first one was a zombie kid named Dead Ed who wears a tuxedo. I thought it'd be fun to draw him again. He seems like a very cool idea for a recurring character in my drawings.

Business Bass


I guess it's just one of those typical days when you have the urge to draw a bass fish in a business suit.

Through The Sewer Pipe


I don't dream very often but when I do, it's always weird. But that's irrelevant because this idea was not inspired by a dream.

Pixel Cuphead Fan Art (The Red One)

This is not the first time I've done pixel art, but this is the first pixel art upload on this blog. There's a reason why I drew Cuphead fan art again today, though. Earlier today, I received a request in Deviantart for the Cuphead ink drawing I did a couple of days ago to be added to a Cuphead-based fan art group. Surely enough, I approved it and also requested that I join their club and was admitted. I thought it'd probably be fun to contribute to the group voluntarily so I decided to do a pixel art version of red Cuphead player.

I may do more Cuphead fan art in the future when I feel like it.

Rolling On A Rail (An Abstract Drawing)


I just sort of had this craving to draw an abstract drawing today. I think this idea may have been inspired by pinball machines. I used to like them a lot when I was younger.

Cuphead Fan Art (Before It's Even Come Out)



I decided it's a good idea to start drawing dates on the actual drawings for future convenience's sake.

This is fan art based on Cuphead, an indie 2D shooter that's not even out yet. I can't wait to play it when it comes out. Trailer below.

~Dexter is Drunk~


To be honest, I have no idea where I got the idea to draw this. But hey, I have no reason not to!

100% Accurate DeeDee


Hmmm. . . I don't know. Something feels wrong about it but I can't quite put my finger on it.

Learning To Draw Comic and Cartoon Eyes (w/ Draw With Jazza)


More drawings from another YouTube tutorial session. I already did one with eyes before but I thought it'd also be helpful if I learned how Jazza does it as well.

First Boss of KzzzZZZzzT! [Concept Art]


If you don't already know, I have a 2d platformer indie game project going on and I'm just about getting a big portion of the main levels finished. Above is concept art I drew for the planned first boss of the game. It should help me visualize how to translate an idea in my head into the computer.

His name is Kranky.

Draw So Cute Girls (w/ Draw So Cute)


Youtube can be a very good resource to discover stuff that you wouldn't otherwise have even wanted to consider. I'm not a cutesy type of artist but I am an adventurer/curious explorer of sorts so I don't really consider any type of art "cringe territory" (except for maybe anything nsfw).

These two girls are based off a couple of videos by a YouTube channel called "Draw So Cute".

Learning To Draw Lips and Mouths (w/ Draw with Jazza)

  
 Ever since I stumbled upon a half hour "How to Draw Cartoon Eyes" tutorial on YouTube last Saturday, I've suddenly wanted to seek more because of their power to teach new skills in a short span of time. Today, I've decided to watch "How to Draw Lips and Mouths" by Draw with Jazza. I didn't have space to practice drawing all the mouths that were presented in the limited paper area but I still drew more ideas than I would usually do. Some of the mouths are not quite right whereas others are actually pretty decent.

Learning To Draw Hands From A Jazza Tutorial


I decided to do more cartoon hand practice while watching a tutorial video. Not really a very good practice session, though. There are some mistakes and imperfections. But hey, I tried to learn and improve and that's all that matters. I will still continue to practice drawing hands whenever I get the chance.

Reference:

Oh Howdy There, Pal. Hyuk!


As promised, here's a drawing from yesterday. It's pretty much inspired by John R. Dilworth's works in Stretch Films. If you're familiar with Courage the Cowardly Dog then you've likely heard of John Dilworth.

I Missed A Day

Whoops! I was so busy with everything I did today that I totally forgot that I was supposed to upload my drawings for the day. I did do some drawing today, I just forgot to scan it for upload. I can spend about 15 minutes doing that but it's just about bedtime and I'm really sleepy. I'll postpone this for tomorrow morning.

A Promo Drawing For A Game I'm Working On


I've been working on an indie-game project since October of 2015. It is a 2D Platformer inspired by the classic Crash Bandicoot games. Not very original? Well, I assure you that there is a lot of originality within it and it will also be fun to play regardless. You can follow the game at GameJolt.com here: http://gamejolt.com/games/kzzzzzzzzt/166162

I also post updates on the game's developer log here: http://gamejolt.com/dashboard/games/166162/devlog

Learning To Be A Cartoonist - Part 1


Something that I've always dreamed of since I was a kid was to become a cartoonist. Back then, it was a bit of a vague dream. I did live a very distracted life back then. My entire life and motivations revolved mainly around video games, and so I never actually started a deep habit of drawing but I did occasionally doodle cartoons on paper and textbooks but I never fully addressed the deep emotional baggage and distraction that was holding me back from beginning.


Now I'm 19 years old and I'm only just beginning to have real commitment to drawing cartoons. And it's quite shocking to me how I've managed to start a habit of building a foundation for a possible future career of becoming a cartoonist within just a few months of hard work. I really really REALLY wish I had started way earlier than I did and hadn't wasted a huge portion of my early life doing stupid stuff. But at the same time, I also recognize that I'm still young and that I have a lot of time to shift the trajectory of my life so it isn't wasted. Making cartoons is something I've been wanting to do for a very long time going way back to my childhood. My adult mind perceives high difficulty to come if I were to pursue this seriously. My child mind sees an opportunity to feel alive again.

Still Life Practice (Simple)


I'm back to taking lessons from Barrington Barber's book "The Fundamentals of Drawing". This drawing is from a lesson detailing simple still-life composition. I think I did a good job with the fruit but the bowl feels slightly off. Trying to draw close-to-perfect curves and lines (without rulers) is generally almost impossible, at least for beginners like me.

Little Orphan


These are actually random doodles. But yet they seem to tell a story that I want to explore.

EEEEeeeeEEE!!!


Drawing halloween-related stuff is really fun. I can't wait for the end of the year because by then I would have drawn a lot of horror-themed drawings.

Jelly On A Kitty

This time I wanted to try something different. I don't normally draw cute stuff but here's some cute stuff.

Half Dead


It's coming. It's that time of the year again. . .

Breaking Apart


This was drawn after an intense half-hour meditation session where I began questioning my life and daily habits. It was quite difficult and disturbing. Drawing something to try to communicate it almost felt natural to me, like wanting to eat food when you're hungry.

Guess Who?


It's Bloo.

More Bojack


It's him again.

A Cassette Deck Radio


Some more still life practice. I'm getting pretty good at this. This is not bad.

Still Life Practice


I wasn't sure of what I wanted to draw today. In fact, I ended up deciding that this isn't exactly a day where I draw something creative. So instead I took out my drawing tutorial book again and continued where I left off. I'm at the second chapter now where I'm introduced into Objects and Still Life Drawing. Here's a fir-cone and a wine glass that the book (referenced below) asked me to draw. They're nowhere as good the book examples but they're good for an amateur.

The End Of One Sketchbook And Into A New One


I just met the last page of my current sketchbook and I usually add "The End" drawings unto every last page of my sketchbooks because I want to. I also name every new sketchbook I begin drawing on by drawing "Sketchbook <Name>" on the first page of every sketchbook. I've named my newest sketchbook "Sketchbook Time".

To celebrate, I took out all my previous sketchbooks to get a bit of perspective to how far I've gone and it's quite satisfying for me to look at them and see that growth is happening and my skills are indeed improving. Now, it's only been a year since I first started drawing in sketcbooks and it's only been a couple of months since I started drawing consistently on a daily basis. It feels like the better I get, the easier it also is for me to build momentum and draw with less effort.
