Black Hair Kimono with Basic Colour Blue by Shintai88
Black Hair Kimono with Basic Colour Blue
A rough draft. I thought I would play with the colors this time as well.

I practiced drawing eyes and eyebrows over and over again using pen and paper, I referenced some manga to get ideas on how to express emotions, and think I have finally settled on a style that I am comfortable with drawing.

I then attached a simple nose line and lips below the eyes, and than finally drew out this character.

I tried to replicate what I had drawn on paper on a digital canvas, and this is the result, hopefully I am improving.

Again thank you for viewing, and please give me your thoughts, and ways to improve.
Pony Tail Girl Draft 2 by Shintai88
Pony Tail Girl Draft 2
Sketch of a black hair girl with her hair tied back in a ponytail. wearing a kimono.
Still struggling to proportion the body.
I am finally have free time, So I plan to spend a lot of time drawing again. For the first month or two I expect I will be getting use to the tools again. Hopefully after I will be able to produce some consistent pieces.
Resketch of Concept Character for Story by Shintai88
Resketch of Concept Character for Story
This is a re-sketch for the original, I had not had done any drawings in a few years, so I have basically chosen my favorite piece to re draw, unfortunately I have yet to get back the original movement of the pen, and I am still trying to get used to using the Wacom.

I have also uploaded a recording of the drawing process. (I tried to retrace how I originally ended up drawing the original) How ever you will notice this is far more inferior to my original. Which is a shame. Could also be due to the fact that I had rushed it a bit.…
I have started a Youtube Channel, where I plan to record most of my drawings from start to finish, will probably break them in to 3 - 4 stages…

Just started getting into this, so I am a beginner among beginners. When I have done something I am happy with I will upload it. Though Probably won't get anything done till the end of the week, Since I am working and studying.

I've also started a Youtube Channel where I will be recording and posting my drawings from start to finish. So if you want you can see and give me tips on what I should do or could try to improve.

Journal History

I originally planned to continue with adding more to my profile after my exams, but things never work as planned. Since during my long abandonment of everything entertaining in order to be totally absorbed into studies meant alot of stuff got backed up, so as soon as exams became of no concern I have had literally no time to do anything but catch up.

That and its been impossible to actually draw with lack of space to do it.

Anyway I plan to clear up a free room and set up a study where I can finally concentrate on doing some drawings and do some other creative works.
