Winging it

I've been kinda neglecting my digital studies but I'm trying to get the portfolio done as quick as possible... aaaand this weekend I kinda got addicted to Dragon Age 2 for a bit ( shaaame on me D: ) but I'm putting it on hold now so I can do my art. The next piece will probably be an angel like picture so I'm practising wings and feathers.
These are mostly studies from birds but one or two were referenced from drawings made by Johannes Voß.

Ye ole couple

A couple drawing of me and my wonderful girlfriend Hannah <3
Wanted to do a sort of victorian/1800 style couple portrait and if I coulour it I'll add a sort of oval shaped frame around it. I will also try and make the faces more realistic but not super realistic. We'll see how it goes lmao.

Me and my girlfriend have been playing with henna a lot these past two days and we've been talking about it for over a week so I got tempted to draw something henna inspired. So here we go. A girl with dreads and henna. Might do something serious out of it but for now, I need to finish my RIFT contest entry. 2 days remaining.

Bark Bark

It's been a while but I've been in Stockholm for my brothers graduation and to meet my parents together with Hannah. We met her mother as well before she went off to Oman.
And now I'm back to drawing again so now I'm working on my contest entry for the RIFT contest that I mentioned in my previous post. Gotta hurry because I just got 4 days left aaaaaaaaaa.. but I kinda like the feeling of having a deadline <3

Pow, right in the kisser

Getting back to doing studies. Spent about a week to finish that hunting drawing to see how fast I can finish a piece since I tend to take so long. But now I will try to draw at a higher speed without sacrificing quality and do studies as well like I did before. So my next piece I'll try to do a colossus drawing for a RIFT contest on DA.

And I see that I'm still afraid of using hard brush strokes instead of turning the opacity and flow down a load. Just gonna keep practising.

The Hunting

It's done. That took me, what, less than 10 days to complete? May seem like a lot for some but for me it's an improvement. Though it may seem rushed instead which isn't good. Oh well, I'm learning how to speed up my work instead of taking a month for each piece.
I did have fun rendering the lizardy-camel-horse thingies(I really need to think of a name for them) head though.
