After sketching, colouring and deleting twice already, I finally made the sketch that I'll be offically using for realistic Noodle.
I used to hated the idea of making Gorillaz into real people for some reason... I just couldn't see it... but hell I got on the hype train! I already sketched out another realistic piece of all of them together, full body shot. Like a realistic band photoshoot where I'm trying to snuck in as many references as possible cus who doesn't love details.
Although I'm so hyped to do more of these realistic ones and improve everytime, I want to save some time for non fan art pieces as well. Cus besides the realistic ones, I'm working on their cartoon selfs too!
And I don't want to be JUST a Gorillaz fan artist, as much as I truly love the band and the drawing style... there are too many ideas floating around in my head that I desperately want to throw in front of my eyes... make it somewhat... more real to me. I used to have a lot of people complaining about me drawing other things than Gorillaz all of a sudden like 5 years ago on my old account. Of course I understand people for following artists for certain content, you're never forced to stay... but it was really annoying that they made me feel like a machine :/
If you feel the lack of certain content then go away, keep your mouth shut, or respectfully wait for it. Sure you can ask about it, but I'm pretty sure no one wants to feel like they're just feeding the hungry lions.
And when it comes to fan art... I personally have to take the risk for publishing it and hope no bitch photoshops away my signature, aka my effort. Such things really makes one question if they even should continue on making fan art if people don't even appreciate it in the right way.
I'm working on so many things at the same time, as well as recording them for new speedpaintings which I probably haven't done in a whole year already! Plus I soon want to start drawing more environment too. Get these worlds my characters live in out there too. But of course I know that all these ideas don't roll out fast enough for my liking, they come together too slow due to school. Despite I noticed I'm a bit faster than before... it still feels like I'm sitting back and relax too long while drawing which makes me bored at some point. I hate that.
I ever made a facebook page for WIPs, sketches and to be easier tagged in case of costume events...
but facebook felt too messy so to keep things short, Instagram it is for me now.
