Art Blog #25

Ask me anything!   I'm Meredith Yancy and this is a blog for my artwork. My personal account is at www.violetlemons.tumblr.com, and I've started trying to put more effort to posting all of my art here first before putting it on my main blog, since the reasoning behind making this blog was for all of my art to be in one spot and for people to be able to see it without having to put up with my personal posts.

(it is called Art Blog #25 because I am very fond of the number 25)

i was playing around with that color palette some more and wouldn’t you know it I drew the same dang picture I continue to draw constantly over and over (a character lineup drawing to try and get me used to drawing my characters at the correct heights)

for those who are unfamiliar with these guys, from left to right their names are Chives, Pike, Tu, Moe and Rin, and they are travelers

i’m thinking that maybe I WILL actually make the green on pike more teal but I’m not entirely sure yet hahaha

I felt like coming up with some character designs based on color palettes!! and ended up overdesigning them

Their names are Cress and Viktor!

I’m really happy with these, Viktor’s arms are a bit too short but I tried to fix it when designing his back; also I couldn’t decide whether or not I liked the light pink going all the way around the eyes or just under the bottom but oh well I suppose

for some reason I’ve been really inspired by the lyrics ‘spilling out in constellations’ from a song by The Bravery. the imagery and character inspiration I got from the song and that line aren’t entirely related to the song otherwise, but this and similar images have been bouncing around in my head for at least a year now, so it was about time I drew it in some form
i’m really grateful for the inspiration that line gave me, actually, because until then alkaline had about zero flaws and he’s way more interesting now
is it very very bad to use the grain filter for anything in photoshop, i’m experimenting with stuff (there were other filters that looked really super cool, oddly enough since they usually make things look like crap, but i felt like those were cheating and so i didn’t play around with anything other than the grain filter)

a thing I made the other day!

#i should update this blog more  #my apologies 

violetlemons:

do you ever just spend an hour or so working very hard on something before suddenly realizing that what you are doing makes absolutely no sense to you at all, and even less sense to anyone else

the only story behind this that I can think of is that I tried to draw the same thing except with markers a year or two ago and failed miserably

I don’t know what possessed me to do this back then either

#sorry it's been so long since I've posted art here!  #I need to get better at keeping up with this kind of thing 
A quick doodle before I go to bed.
I like these colors, I think I might use them again for something else someday.

tree kangaroos are adorable and so I tried to draw a cartoon one as a test
the pose is generic but I have a feeling I’m going to be playing around with designs based off of them for a while

I designed a worm-caterpillar-creature guy today and I thought I’d upload all of the sketches I drew of him when I was designing him (they’re in order from first to last)

maybe he will change again in the upcoming days, if I continue to draw him, and I’ll be able to keep track of his development over time and stuff
