Speed paint: Katniss Everdeen

I decided to do something original, rather than a Manga practice, so I trawled for reference pictures for the pose I wanted (my camera being out of battery so I couldn’t take a pic of ME in the right pose!), sketched it out, then transferred the picture to PaintTool SAI. This is the result. It …

Manga Practice: Demon stage 1

WIP: Eradnie again

Ok, trying this portrait again. I thought Manga style would suit a DnD character better, so I dusted off my “How to Draw Manga” folder and gave it a go. I’ve never drawn this style before. It’s… interesting. I think I like it. I certainly like this picture better than the one I had previously …
