I’ve watched clips and songs from “Les Miserable” on repeat for the past few days ^^; and so I was inspired to draw these, based on one of my favourite songs, ‘One day more’ but with some of my characters. Alaine as Cosette, Dai as Marius and Andre as Enjolras. I only did ‘one day more’ because I don’t know which of my characters would be the other characters.
I chose Andre as Enjolras because, they’re both patriotic. Andre is not French, he’s Tahitian (French Polynesian) and his mother is French-Nigerian so he is many shades of French XD I chose Dai as Marius because they’re both sweet and that in the film Enjolras and Marius seem to be good friends, but Dai and Andre are even better friends, best friends :D I don’t think that my characters are a perfect fit for those parts, but I had fun doing this.
I tried out a few new techniques on all of these and drawings.
I used screenshots for this as something of a simple study, and I like how it’s turned out, much better than I thought it would do.
I tried a blockier type of colouring to try and be quick and I wanted to try this composition, and I quite like how it’s turned out, but I think I’d use a different kind of brush next time and that I might change Andres pose a little, make it more dynamic.
Then my brain went on a tangent and away from Les Mis but still in the same kind of time period, I like the tangent my brain went on :) This started as an impromptu sketch, of Dai as being drawn by Andre and I tried drawing as Andre and I signed it as him A. Manu (also as myself at the top) and the text (hopefully) says “My dearest friend, Dainan”. And I really like how it’s turned out :D But for some reason I think he looks kinda younger there ^^; and that early 1800’s clothes suit Dai quite well XD
Dai: *still reading and not looking up” You do know drawing me, doesn’t count as doing your homework.
Andre: Non, I will make it work!
Fun fact: I have sang “Castle on a cloud” in Welsh for my music exam :D and I somehow passed it! ^^
Sorry for such a long post, I hope you all like it and any thought and opinions on these are welcomed :)
“All I did was sTEAL SOME BREAD!”
:D I made a model and I just love it, it's not too bad considering it's my first ever attempt. and that I would love to make more.
We were asked to make a model for a stop motion animation. I decided to make a dragonfly, because I was inspired by a book I've been reading recently and because it seemed like it would be an elegant design to follow. I can't show the animation at the moment but lets just say . . . it's interesting XD
Made with wire, crepe paper, polystyrene stuff and a cotton bud stick.
I hope you all like it :D
Tony: I go away for ONE summer and this plank decides to grow half a foot! ¬_¬
Ricky’s surname is Mahoney so that’s why Tony is calling him Honey. Yeah, Ricky had the misfortune of being small and a bit ginger so got the leprechaun thing a lot when he was a kid.
Tony and Ricky are the best of friends, they just like poking fun at each other, and they’ve been best friends since they were babies, they live right next door to each other and the one of their mothers would look after them whilst the other would be at work.
It’s my first time drawing Tony, I like his childhood hair, but I’m not sure about his grown-up hair style though :/ He looks a bit too much like a Thriller era Michael Jackson. I’ll need to do some studies though.
I hope you all like it :D
Ricky, Tony and the sketch belongs to me :)
A small preview of a study/practice/parody thing I've been working on and off for a while now.
It started off as a little sketch of Hazel as Rapunzel and Llew as Flynn in the same pose in the poster for the film, that was drawn in late October 2013, and I really liked the sketch, and I was in the middle of an art block during that time so I used it to practice colouring and stuff and I basically kept going back to it to practice new techniques on it and steadily improving it ^^ and a time laps of each improvement is really nice :D ^^
And now I'm not sure what to do with it, should I post it here only or as a proper submission here and dA? I really like it and I really like Llew and Hazel together, but the thing is, Hazel is technically with Leon (someones oc on dA) but I prefer LlewXHazel to LeonXHazel and Leon's owner isn't really active anymore and I just don't think Leon is right for her (though it might be slightly bias on my part XD) and I don't know what to do about it, I don't want to say anything to the owner as I'm worried of hurting her feelings and I don't want us to stop RPing. vv;
any advice would be nice
Hazel and art belong to me and tangled poster belongs to Disney
Mike and Hazel ^^ I've been wanting to draw/commission Mike for a while now, and I don't draw him often enough and I haven't actually drawn him since I started drawing in a semi realistic style. I wanted to try and work out Mike's features, so I decided to do a comparison between him and his sister, Hazel, given that they're twins and even though they're different genders, they look very similar, but I don't want Mike to be a carbon copy of Hazel, so I tried to make him look a bit masculine. I'm not sure if I've succeeded and I don't like how his hair has come out either :( Maybe it would have been better if it was drawn out properly and I will draw him properly soon ^^;
by the way, Mike is the eldest of the two :)
I hope you all like it :) Tips and opinions are welcomed ^^
The twins and sketch belong to me :)
