View Full Version : From the Dark- Left or Right?

I'm right in assuming MTer's now can have two art threads...true? One in critique corner, the other here?

For anyone who doesn't know, my name's Chii. I used to be really active on here. Then I went to college and MT exploded. It looks so fresh and new.


Commission based on script by friend's boyfriend.

A super rough development piece beforehand:

Odd story. I had an early sketch of the old guy too but I gave it to the screenwriter o.O...

Welcome back, Chii. <:

Yes you can indeed have a thread here and in the CC! The Artist Alley is basically for showing off and sharing some lulzy sketches or finished pieces. And the CC is solely for critique ;D
I'm liking the dark feel to your drawings here, very nice! You should post some of your old art, might be nostalgic for a lot of us old members. <:

Welcome back Chii :D
Good luck on making some art magic for your bf's screenwriting friend.

Why thank you Linz <3. And Morfedly, I appreciate the kind wishes. It was for my friend's boyfriend ha. I'm actually working on art for my bf right now.

Per Linz's request, here is some old art. I have MOUNTAINS of this stuff so if any of the other MT veterans (or anyone else really) wants to see any of my older work, just let me know.

I miss Resa. Anyone heard from her?
this one's really popular on DA for some reason...
I used to do a lot of fanart. I had a series I had done for a convention:

lot of cute stuff too...

Linz, I'm just throwing random stuff out. If you have any particular requests, I'd be happy to oblige.

That first one is pretty cool! I love all the detail! The second picture so cute! <3 All your chibis are pretty adorable as well. Can't wait to see a new piece from you :)

I think your older stuff looks much better and more refined.

Raichu... heart melting ;______;

It is interesting to see the style changes from back then to today, I really like the old sketches for some reason c:

JJorgie: Aw thank you. Newer pieces on the way.

Aether: Refined is an interesting word to use. I understand you probably are referring to how clean or tight my lines were and how smooth the color appears on the old stuff. I've been studying a lot of character design, storyboarding, and traditional painting as of late which is why a lot of my artwork is far rougher than my older sketches. They require you to work faster but ultimately I think my anatomy and appeal has improved. It's a matter of opinion either way; thank you for yours :).

Demonfyre: Ha thanks! Yeah. My older sketches are a lot more "manga-esk." I've been steering away from manga because I realized how isolated I had been and how little I had experimented with other drawing styles. I still love manga and anime but it's a sad fact that art schools and professional companies want more than just that style (and, on occasion, discriminate against it). I also felt like I didn't truly have a unique style so I've been doing a lot of "artistic soul-searching."

Evil_Cake: :cat_shylove: you're awesome, thank you

Posting something tonight. Darn this whole working to live thing.

Which do you like better? Left or right? Why?

If anyone's seen Game of Thrones I'm preparing to make a sort of mural with a code of arms for my boyfriend's graduation. He goes by "the lucky lynx" when gaming so that's why you see the tuff-eared kitty with the clover.

Best part about these? Drawn on sticky notes :feels classy:

I like them both, but the right is probably my favorite. It has a more powerful look.

05-12-2013, 06:40 AM
I agree, the right has a nicer harmony to it. <:

Thanks for posting some of your old work! Twas nice to see it again!

The right is the coolest.
