Bear and the Fox - Episode 5
Made some art for our newest episode, which you can check out on Yootoob. :D
Venus & Toothless
I saw the movie yesterday and wanted to do something fun with the character. :3 Here you go! xD
[Part 2: Practice Drawings]
One of my desires for this painting is to not only learn but to be able to make a final piece that I can be proud of. In order to do that, I chose to draw some study sketches before I went for the final project.
I will say again that this isn’t a tutorial but rather a documentation of a process. I’m nowhere near pro but am definitely gonna try to work hard to become one.
I drew some practice drawings to get a feel of the picture. What I did was draw both cosplayers to get a feel to their gestures and their costumes.
So I set up the board and have a paper on under for the final drawing. I was also able to print out this photograph by Usagi-Tsukino-krv, a cosplayer on Deviant Art, with permission. I’m working to see if I can start on the final painting as soon as I can.
As I’m preparing, I want to be able to use one artist as both a reference and inspiration for the process. I’m sure you’ve heard of the guy. :3
Anyhooves, until the next post.
(Next up: Compositions Part Two!) :D
Made a new sketch using the design from an hour or two ago. xD

Soooooo I made a doodle for fun. :x Perhaps I can finalize her design and make awesome art with her?
[Part 1: Supplies]
I was able to get permission from Cosplayer Usagi-Lunnaya on Deviantart to paint one of her photographs. Which one though? I’ll keep it a secret for a bit. At least until further on in to the process. :D
But first I should say that I’m definitely not a master painter in any sense and as I work on this project, I also hope to learn more about the craft as I go along. Though I will say that I’ve got sooooome experience with the medium. Just check out… THIS! and… THIS!
So yahhh, you can say I got some skill. So shall we get started? Good! :3
Tools of the Trade
So here I have some old Gouache tubes from “Reeves” that I bought in my Freshman year of College and a Watercolors that one my High School Art Teachers gave me.
The Paintbrushes are all bundled up together in a single bag for it to fit inside the Tool Box. There’s a mix of Acrylic brushes and watercolor. I also bought a 16” x 20” inch Cold Press Illustration Board for the final painting.
After a couple of days, I went out to buy some more paint. Since I’m experimenting the use of both Gouache and Acrylic, I bought some Student Quality Paints by the company “Reeves.”
Pretty much the same paint brand from my first year in College. xD
Since I have used this paint brand before, I figured why not just use them for good practice? Though when mentioning this to an artist friend of mine, she recommended me using “Liquitex,” “Winsor,” “Newton” and “Golden Acryllics”.
Those brands tend to be pretty pricy though if they give a better quality of work, I’ll keep it in mind for a future project.
