Trying to start designing a front cover page for an 8-page manga I completed recently… 🤔
 
Cannot find the cable for my graphics tablet that connects it to the laptop anywhere currently and I scanned in some pencil art to colour some of it in digitally so I’m having to use the laptop tracker pad to colour for now. It’s really such a pain trying to paint digitally by clicking and dragging > < Not fun. I guess I just have to make do with that for now as I don’t have any other means. * sigh * 😣😣😣
 
I also can’t stop listening to this for the past few days that I stumbled across on youtube… it’s so beautiful 😊😊 🌟

This Dark Room in which I stand

I actually literally never write or read poetry so don’t know if this is good or bad but I just really felt like writing something in a sort of poetry form all of a sudden to express myself and I really enjoyed it nevertheless. I might see if I can get into writing poetry more as well as my drawing and painting because I did enjoy it, I enjoy writing in general but I haven’t really tried poetry so much. I’m quite happy with this.

Dream Sequence

A drawing I’m working on at the moment which features heavy rainfall and a wooden chair faced away from the viewer. I call this drawing/idea dream sequence because it is based around a dream I had last December which looked very odd, yet very striking and poignant visually to my mind as well. I suppose it could also simply be called ‘Rain’. I liked the idea of trying to draw raindrops too. I tried experimenting trying to draw some rain, first with just pencils, then I tried to add pens. I also left a lot of the raindrop pencil marks without pens. What I’ve been attempting to do is make it so that there seems some sense of depth by firstly *size*, not making all the drops the same size, some tiny little drops, some much larger. Secondly I have been trying to make the tones more varied in the drawing by using a variety of tines and heaviness for the drops, incorporating pencils (HB, 5H), a light-dark grey thin fineliner, a black thin fineliner as well as a lot of black biro pen. I hoped to achieve more tonal variation with using several different shades, so that the heavy rain looks more varied, dappled in tones and light. It is all worthwhile experimenting anyways and I am enjoying drawing and trying to learn things along the way.

The drawing as it looks so far.
