LoZ: Skyward Sword Portraits V: Skyloft Historian & Human figure stuff

Hey it's been another week! (: Hope you've gotten used to the Friday updates by now. Been somewhat unmotivated lately though.

Sketched this on the 23rd of November 2011 [before game released in Australia] but then only finished shading it during the game as I was distracted haha.
It's based off a photo by nickatkins in this figure drawing resource [I can't directly link to it]: http://www.pixelovely.com/gesture/figuredrawing.php

I started these portraits, intending to practice and Skyward Sword kept me motivated. (:

This is the fifth one I did. Made him oogly eyed because he seemed that way in the screenshots before I got the game. That and an owl is named after him [Kaepora Gaebora] and that he actually has no legs under certain conditions. (:

Legend of Zelda Skyward Sword Portraits IV: Demon Lord

Still got nothing to post on Tuesdays [nothing proper at least] so now considering just posting once a week and post whatever I have at hand, instead of a theme associated with a day. I shall more or less submit every Friday then as that's what seems most realistic for me. Dubbing this Fun Fridays now. I'm going to gradually pack things into these weekly posts when I'm capable someday.
Haha I'm changing my mind a lot but for the better I'd hope [and I'm letting you know at least].

Did this on the 21st of November 2011 [before game released in Australia].
Took over a few days to complete and is based off a photo by n3k in this figure drawing resource [I can't directly link to it]: http://www.pixelovely.com/gesture/figuredrawing.php

This is the fourth one I did. Ghirahim drawn before I knew he was more "quirky" than I expected.

Skyward Sword Portraits III: Guide of Destiny + mariocomic

Hey there! Another one here (:

Excuse the copy paste as I want to get the same point across for all of these:

First time drawing Fi so bear with my boring symmetrical composition here. Not proud of this one.

Text Post: Mission 2012 & "Testy Tuesdays"

Hey there! It's 2012 now and just want to give a heads up on what's going on [artwise only] and set some goals for this blog & in my journey. New fresh start in another year.


Right now in art skill progression...
I am still trying to draw other things that look worthy of posting at the moment because I am mixed between showing what I'm up to versus posting high quality stuff...when most things aren't high quality in the first place....and yet I want to show my progress so people can see the improvement....so bare with me through my wonderfully insane, silly, childish, striving-to-be-professional-level-but-not-there-yet art!
I have also understood that technical skill is nothing compared to creativity, expression, story telling, writing and communicating your ideas so that is another area I'll need to work on, slowly and patiently. I am currently going through non fiction technical art books very slowly because the time to practice must be much more than the time used in reading the book. Still, I can't help but be utterly impatient sometimes!

Did this on the 19th of November 2011 [before game released].

This is the second one I did. Link isn't perfect here but I'm pretty happy with my progress here.
