I decided to make an Inspiration Sheet to help me stay (as the name implies) inspired and motivated. was fun trying to find artists and games i really enjoy see art or gameplay of.
Digimon - loved Digimon World 1 for ps1, and the show as a kid (doesn’t hold up all that well now though). Always wanted to have the cards, but i could never find a place that sold them as a kid. These newer ones have an awesome style to them. source
JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure - Love the series, started reading around December 2013, still need to catch up (on part 7). favorite is part 4
(on the right side consist of artist’s i have books by, if i did artists i follow this would take forever)
Micheal Hampton - love his designs and figures overall
Burne Hogarth - love the dynamic-ness
Micheal Mattesi - love the flow, rhythm, and force
Gustave Dore - love the classy feel and design work
Jack Hamm - Really good artist for beginners and professionals i think, work may have an outdated style, but still can apply what he teaches in his books. One thing he tries to emphasize is trying different styles and approaches, which really helps keep things looking fresh and new.
Zdzisław Beksiński- Love how wild and surreal his drawings get. So fun to look at
love seeing and designing monster girls. A good example would be MikeLuckas- draws some awesome looking monstah goils.
Love H. P. Lovecraft’s work when someone gives it flesh, though i should really read more of his stuff.
I don’t play many games now-a-days (i actually play a few games a lot, but RPG wise, i don’t know if i have the tolerance for grinding as i used to), but i still have fond memories of waking up early to play them and going to bed late so i could get one level higher.
Dark Souls - had lots of fun with this game. want to play 2, but not out on PC yet. The designs for enemies and bosses is ridiculous.
Earthwrom Jim - loved trying to play it as a kid and always dying (didn’t love the dying part that much though)
Metal Gear Solid / Acid - cool characters in the games, and Acid (2 especially) had a nice style.
Asura’s Wrath - never played it, but i love the movie of it.
Final Fantasy - always has some cool enemy and boss designs. 9 holds a special place in my heart
Bioshock - really like the setting and tone, but after seeing the concept art for it i wish it had more bio-freaks. still, good game.
Elder Scrolls - Morrowind and Oblivion were really fun, Morrowind though had a more interesting story, characters, and tone in my opinion.
Otogi - xbox original had a lot of obscure games, and Otogi 1 and 2 i think was one of them. Had some sweet Japanese lore and designs.
Deadly Premonition - great and memorable characters, just like Twin Peaks.
Shadow of the Colossus - soooooooo good
Kingdom Hearts - really like the enemy and bosses, but now i find the games and the new one coming out kind of goofy * hyuk.
Chrono Cross - lots of cool characters and settings. should play trigger, but i’m too lazy for it this point.
Disgaea / la pucelle (really any NIS game) - cool style and cool characters.
Fallout - great RPG’s and great setting, Fedora’s are fine in this game, just be sure to keep them in the game.
Rayman - the first 2 i remember really enjoying, the cartoony style of 1 was really fun to look at. haven’t played many of the new ones, again i’m too lazy to play them.
still alive, sorry i don’t draw more
i’m late for valentines day. hope this hair makes up for it
more sticky notes. nice to get away from digital, but time to go back to it
another late night doodle. always seems to go to Jojo
my friend stuffy and stuffchan requiem. He’s 2 lewd 4 me
(Question from my Ask.fm account)
I’ve been asked a lot about developing styles and improving so I thought I would make an advice comic for you lovelies~ :>
It’s so hard to explain about our development in art styles. We may be influenced by the same things, but how we illustrate, express, and think is completely different. It’s not something you can buy or learn in a class.
Remember that age doesn’t matter and it’s never too late. You can draw whether you’re 30 or 13. You’re still young! And there’s no rush. We learn at our pace and should be proud of ourselves for continuing to draw. Not many people realize that art is a pretty tough field and I know a couple that have given up and chosen other paths.
Improvement will happen if you keep on doing what you love. It will take time but keep practicing and months (or years) from now you’ll be amazed at how much you’ve progressed. Soon your doodles that used to take you 2 hours will take only a minute or less.
But again, you have to just do it. This applies with music, performance, or anything else. Tutorials, books, and advices won’t mean anything unless you actually do it.
Don’t think about what anyone will think, if you’ll be famous or not, or if you’ll develop a “unique” style. Just start drawing. Fanart, figure drawing, animals, anime, just do it!!
You will improve and you will create great things. Just do it!!
I hope this helps!
sticky note doodles from today
late night doodles are the best doodles
