Took a break from editing my book and did a little drawing. Feeling like I should really work hard to improve my art but its tough because writing/editing take up so much time.
Anyway I posted these on twitter but re-posted here to keep them all on one place.
First up is a collection of my 5 minute art – the goal here is to just scribble down some drawings on note paper.
And some more serious efforts:
Charcoal pen drawing of a Rogue
And finally my first attempt to draw an anime character – Akatsuki from Log Horizon.

I like the dragon the best, though the spike on the tail seems especially heart-shaped to me … Maybe I am in love?
Maybe that’s why the dragon is so happy! 😀
i like your scenery one and you have a good eye for clothing too. For the face, the outward curve generally goes from the upper lip to the bridge of the nose, then slightly curves in at the eye to go back to normal at the eyebrow. I learnt a little anatomy for a time haha
Cheers – faces are always tricky hehe – I need lots of practice – understanding anatomy is very important 😀 I’ll keep that in mind next drawing.
Dragon Dragon Dragon… I love dragons mkaaai 😀
There is something very cool about dragons. I think I spend half my drawing time pottering about on dragons or dinosaurs hehe
Yeah, they are such powerful and magical creatures, both good once and bad once. Imagine riding one of those *jumps in chair* If I could draw, I would draw them all the time hah 🙂
You should just start drawing them! Getting good is what practice is all about
Oh I know, I was at it for a while, drawing simpler things. But then I looked at my BF’s drawings and sighed. He is like a wizard with a pen.
Well then he should be able to help u learn! I’m trying to practice every day to rise above noob level 😀
Looking good! Seems you have much more to paint then 🙂
If you really want to improve then consistency is key. It’s a good idea to get into a habit of writing/drawing daily if those are the skills you wish to hone. Just like those 5 a 10 min doodles, it doesn’t have to perfect. Same with your writing, just write and have fun. Do the editing process once you’re done so you can enjoy the flow of words as they come. And the truth is, the more you do it, the easier it gets (the act of writing/drawing I’m not necessarily talking about quality of content).
Yeah I’m always writing or editing but just starting into art. My 5 min sketches are practice for me 😀
