Drawn for September's MAG event- she's a sorcerer of holy magic and
character from the online manga "Windgate" created by Aurore.
I could have done a really cool action piece with her casting some big
spell and included her school peer 'Shadow'. But I only had 2 days (left
it to the last minute), I suck at drawing complicated stuff most times
and I lost my imagination! So the only idea I managed to think up was
to draw the girl with large breasts and long, sexy legs! Haha. And since
I spent more time concentrating on drawing her a sexy body, I lacked
on detail and style as far as the face is concerned- something I find
hard since I still don't have a definite style of my own yet, despite
what some people may say. This recently seems to be making my drawings
look too 'forced' and don't seem to flow as well as if I could just
draw one clean, final image from the start - for this, like many other
drawing I do, I plan out what I want first very roughly, I might do
a few different poses (for this I had 2 other standing poses I wanted
to try). Sometimes they look like really, really bad 5 second thumbnails,
after that I might go to a larger, final rough, then to the final, using
any photo reference if I need it - for example, the right foot, since
the shoe was at one of those harder angles. I usually regret rushed
pictures, but it's hard not to when I feel the need to get some fanart
out no matter what, or just get really impatient or frustrated. Plus
it seems exceptionally worse for me since it can take up to a week solid
to get one fairly simple, but nice looking pic out. I'd stick to colouring
other people's work, if there wasn't always this need to create something
of my own- trouble is it either takes me too long or I simply don't
have the technical ability to do so!
