Strawberry the Skyrim adventurer – beginning a sketch

*** Work in Progress***

I played on Nick’s Skyrim on his computer recently and made a character. I dont play it very often because its on his pc but sometimes when hes at work at weekends I may play a little bit. The world truly is beautiful and its an enjoyable game, I also for some reason rlly rlly like the chracter I made. She is a pink Argonian that I called Strawberry. She’s a mage that focuses on/ specialises in Destruction magic, predominantly Ice/Snow themed magic/spells. When I was doing the character creation I just went with whatever first came to mind and what I liked the look of aestetically, but I guess if I were to expand upon this character more, I would say its most likely Strawberry is a nickname given by other people she comes across based on the fact that her body colour is… very pink in game, and that her real name may be very different. Perhaps she has just grown used to going by the name Strawberry and could also serve to be convenient to hide her real name, for whatever reason. Anyway I really enjoy this character for some reason, I just kinda felt like drawing pictures of her. Just doing some sketching practice/line works of the chracter at the moment but once I got that down I’ll ad colour too. I might draw her from different angles, maybe in a location with a backgorund (im thinking snowy mountains since I made her an Ice Mage?), maybe casting a spell etc. Its just kinda fun to draw again really. πŸ™‚ I’ve not done any drawing for a long time, trying to see if I can get back into it πŸ™‚

8-page manga finished! Now to design a cover!

Trying to start designing a front cover page for an 8-page manga I completed recently… πŸ€”
Β 
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 😊😊 🌟

So I’ve recently decided to try drawing an 8 page manga script.

I wrote out the script one evening, the next evening I’d planned out in a sketchbook where all the pictures and text would go, as well as the layout of the boxes. I’m really enjoying it so far. I enjoyed writing the script, I enjoyed planning out the storyboard and playing around with different possible layouts for all the boxes on each page and how to place everything compositionally. I feel so passionate about the short bit of story I’ve come up with to draw, I feel like the idea and message is important so I really want to get it down. πŸ˜€

Now I am trying to practice drawing out certain things, starting off with my main character. I created this character when I was 16, told myself I’d one day make a graphic novel with this character, and 7 years later I still haven’t done anything with him. Now has come a time where I really want to use his character however. I really want to draw my own manga. Im enjoying it so far, hopefully it turns out well. I feel like I’m really well suited to this kind of work/project. It didnt take me long at all to write the script and plan the storyboard. Although I expect it will take longer, and with more practice, to draw what happens in the script so it looks good. πŸ™‚ Hopefully it’ll turn out as well as I want it too. ❀
