Finally the first chapter is finished! I’m so happy! I’ll post the last pages at the bottom of this post. You can also read it in full by clicking on ‘chapter 1’ under the ‘Kamazi 8000’ sidebar, or on My facebook page Onniart.
I’m happy it’s finished, however, as a self critical artist, I’m unhappy with how the art progressed throughout the chapter. I won’t settle for inconsistency. I’m not sure how to go about doing the second chapter as I was planning on using a different program, but this would cause more changes in the art. Maybe I’ll go back and redraw some of the first chapter or continue the style slightly in this new program, but I will be using screen tones and cell shading. We’ll see how it all goes. It probably doesn’t matter, but, I’m an artist, I need it to be perfect.
In other news I’ve been making a lot more videos on Youtube and having fun with that. I also played around with adobe flash and created My first flash animation! Wheee! Please check out My Youtube channel if You haven’t already done so, and click the subscribe button! I need subscribers! I’m a struggling artist with no job! PLEEEESSSSEEEEEE!!!!!
Applaud My creative title for this weeks blog post.
Hello fellow Earth worms. I’ve been so late in updating Onniart for reasons such as…
However, I have finally dragged Myself onto My laptop to get My new art up for My elusive, possibly non-existent followers. Hi guys.
So lately I’ve been messing around with Manga Studio, it’s a pretty great program for drawing and doing some neat designs. I created a bunch of designs that I uploaded to My Redbubble shop, OndreaMaysArt, that can be bought on Tshirts and various other paraphernalia. Here they are…
Basically these are all things I would wear. And they’re ideas I’ve had for a while, except for the ‘too Autistic for this shit’. That one came to Me when I was in line at the post office and some random guy started trying to have a conversation with Me. Except that I was totally Autistic and couldn’t reply at all. I just stood there smiling at Him, hoping He would notice that I’m not able to respond and would leave Me alone. Oh, but He didn’t leave Me alone, You see. This situation would have been perfectly resolved if I could just let Him know that I’M TOO AUTISTIC FOR THIS SHIT!
It would be great if anyone could post some more Tshirt design ideas to Me on My facebook page Onniart. However, it’s not entirely certain that I will put those ideas into action, due to….how I am as a person.
Other than the shirt designs, I’ve also been drawing lots of Kamazi 8000! This chapter is coming to an end now and it’s getting pretty cool! I’m so excited! EEEEEEP! The only thing is, I haven’t actually completed any pages. I’ve only drawn and inked some pages, but haven’t scanned and edited the text in. But that doesn’t matter, I can still show You guys some spoilers before I finish them. ^_^
I will show those in a second, but first, I have some super mega awesome news! I am currently waiting for a shinny new drawing device! (AAAAGH! IT’S GOING TO BE SO COOL!) It’s a Cintiq 13HD touch! Have a look at it here on the Wacom website.
The Cintiq will help Me so much by reducing all the trouble of having to scan My paper drawings, edit the badly scanned pictures, adjust the highlights and shadows so that the lines show up clearly, and then the difficult task of digitally shading the picture either with the mouse pad or My other, lesser quality drawing tablet.
Being able to draw directly onto a screen in real time is a huge advantage, it means I can use My real life talents in the digital world. I have control of the drawing like I do with a pen and paper, but I also have the clean, neat lines and bright colours of the digital world, as well as the ability to undo any mistakes! This is AWESOME! ^_^
So the reason I’m telling You this is because I really want to finish the rest of this chapter using the Cintiq! So now to show You some pages. If You don’t want to see the pages till they’re officially complete, scroll past!
So there You go ^_^ Hopefully You could actually read My writing.
One last thing before I end this post. I did this drawing of Rainbow Quartz from Steven Universe! I love Steven Universe and Rainbow Quartz is such a cool Chatacter design, I had to draw them on Manga Studio. I also recorded the whole thing in a timelapse video which I’ll put at the end of this post.
That’s all folks! Be sure to check in weekly for My not-so-weekly updates!
Other than Kamazi, I’ve done 1 other drawing which I did in manga studio. This is from a dream I had where I was in a circular room with stars all around us with a grey alien who I kissed. Yes, I know, it is kind of strange. But really, WHAT DO YOU PEOPLE EXPECT FROM ME!!??
Ahhh yes. Dreams: always epically bizarre. Speaking of dreams, Kamazi 8000 came from a dream as well. I gave it some tweaks here and there, of course.
One last thing is this video I made to show off My art for this year.
That’s all for now. I can’t wait for more of Kamazi 8000!
