Secret Santa Art Trade 2011 – Now With Art!

15 Mar

The Twitter Secret Santa Art Trade 2011 finished late December and was quite successful, if you ask me! Tons of great art are posted on the site, and I’d encourage you to check it out!

I received my art from @rithtthewarluid, and it’s of Likal, my night elf hunter, and her pet Kanoni!

I just love it! I currently have it as my twitter avatar. And even more excitingly for Likal, I’ve started playing her again (at least a little bit). She’s ecstatic to get some attention again. Thanks again, Rith!

And of course, I ended up making some art too. This year it was for @greyseer!

Here’s a re-enactment of me on the day @Technophobia was drawing names out of a hat for who would draw for who:

Please not a person with a male character please not a person with a male character please not a person with a – Greyseer? Let’s check out his refs… Doh!

No offense Greyseer — I’m just not that good at drawing guys! And I knew I’d have a hard time expressing the awesomeness that is Tharion, because he looks totally badass.

My inability to draw guys probably shows a bit in the drawing, especially since I spent quite a large amount of time on the background and maybe not as much time on Tharion himself. (but check out that foreground cliff; it’s so pretty!) Also, I maaaay have left out some weapons and armor because they are also hard to draw. >_>

I saved “in-progress” images as I worked through this design so later I can do an in-depth post about my drawing process! And I may write an RP post describing what Likal is doing in the picture Rith had drawn; it just screams for a story, doesn’t it? I’ll probably do this for last year’s image too. :3

In the meantime, you really should go check out all the amazing art that was made! And if you participated, I hope to see you around next year for another year of art trading!

Saturday Sketch – Millya

7 May

Awhile back, Vidyala at Manalicious had a blogoversary. To thank her readers, she offered to do five minute sketches of those who commented on the Blogoversary post.

Guess who commented.

Go on, take a stab in the dark.

Well, lots of people commented, actually. Who wouldn’t? Vidyala is known for her artistic prowess. And in case you are unfamiliar with the prowess I speak of, just check out the Secret Santa piece she did of Mishaweha!

But yes, I did happen to comment, asking for a sketch of Likal, my Night Elf. Here’s the sketch Vidyala did (you can also see it in her sketch post):

Likal by Vidyala - 5 minute sketch

Wonderful!

In return, as I felt a little guilty for DEMANDING a sketch (can you demand a sketch if it was offered? I propose that you can), I decided to draw a sketch of Vidyala’s main characters — her mage, Millya!

I tried to leave it to five minutes or less, but I don’t think it was too bad, in the end. Even though Draenei are filled with lots of complicated parts you have to remember to draw, like horns and tentacles and face bumps. But I remembered the very important freckles!

Have you ever tried doing timed sketches before? It’s kinda fun, especially since it excuses any errors you feel you make!

Until next time!
