I have been consumed by Drawception lately. I should be more ashamed than I am.
It’s a waste of time, but it’s not an absolute waste of time. The fast-paced practice is improving my digital drawing and coloring skills. It’s also teaching me other things:
- Concise communication
- Lowest common denominators (modern archetypes) in language and symbols
- Good character design
- So many memes…
- Where my extra time is in the day is (being obsessed, I find a way)
- How my art stands in relation to others’
Yes, it’s 100% ridiculous. That’s the draw.
This is a little creepypasta fanart.
I utilized my internet stalking skills and found the original artist, along with the whole story: https://www.ocularfracture.com/#/stories/
A timid family of Blind Sniffers, taking turns sniffing a daisy. Notice their color-shifting camouflage, which, apart from their incredible sense of smell, is their most essential defense against predators. Sniffer steaks are best served with citrus, as they can taste quite gamey.
I redrew that thing, this is what it turned into. I mentioned doing this in real ink, instead I drew it digitally, which is the most not-real ink of all. Except for disappearing ink. And that would have just been a waste of time. Question: what is the most not-real ink of all? Water!? *Mind blown*
Not sure how I’ll feel tomorrow but for now, I like it. I think this is a style I’ve been reaching toward but never fully realized until recently.
My sister asked. I delivered.
