So, it took me this long to realize that changing the contrast and a bit of the color balance on my scanned drawings makes them look much better (at least, it does to me). So, I pulled some ninja moves and re-uploaded some of my older drawings. I wonder if anyone can see the difference....

Kuroko by Altguard
Kuroko
I actually still haven't drawn anything since my last upload (I doodled this 2 weeks ago) - I kept procrastinating on a paper I had to write and didn't draw anything the entire time as a result. Gah, I can't stand it when something pulls me away from drawing for a while, especially when I feel like I'm in a good drawing groove - it always takes me a week or two of awkward sketches to get back into a drawing groove =___=;.

Anyways, this is far from my best work, but I enjoyed doing this. I made a pretty bad error on Kuroko's proportions that really bugs me though, but I'm not going to say what it is because that would ruin it for everyone ;) (everyone = the 5-10 people who view this, LOL). II feel like I have a thing for drawing railgun characters - Saten or Uiharu will probably be next :).

Fountain Square by Altguard
Fountain Square
This is just a doodle I did last week. I haven't drawn anything this week yet since I've been busy (̶a̶n̶d̶ ̶I̶'̶m̶ ̶t̶e̶r̶r̶i̶b̶l̶e̶ ̶a̶t̶ ̶m̶a̶n̶a̶g̶i̶n̶g̶ ̶m̶y̶ ̶t̶i̶m̶e̶)̶, so I'm just uploading this so that I don't fall silent again. I quite enjoyed this, though the girl's pose looks a bit iffy >___>;. But I'm not willing to put in the work to fix it /superlazy

Suzumiya by Altguard
Suzumiya
I've wanted to do some drawings of some of Ito Noizi's characters since I was in middle school and my friends and I were pretty into the Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya, so I figured I'd start with Haruhi. If I continue, then Shana is likely to be next. Shakugan no Shana was the first series I watched fansubbed, so it has a special place in my heart ;).

What was supposed to be done quickly ended up taking way longer than expected (that's nothing new though >__>). I had the sketch and inked lineart done in roughly 2 hours or so and figured "Since this is just a really simple portrait-type drawing and it didn't take me that long, I might as well color it for good measure", not realizing that just because it was simple to sketch doesn't mean that it'll be quick to color >___>;. Although this doesn't really look that much like Haruhi to me, I still enjoyed doing this, and I'm content with the result. I'm not sure why it doesn't look like her to me, but.... it just doesn't xD. My brain is telling me that it looks like her just drawn in a kinda different style, but my gut says it just doesn't look like her.

btw, if anyone who actually reads my ranting happens to use colored pencils - what colors do you guys use for skin tones? I'm clearly still trying to figure out what colors to use for that >___>;

I'm Brian, an introverted guy who's discovered a fondness of drawing. Any any time I'm not spending on classwork I generally spend on drawing or playing video games (mostly drawing now, though). I hope to learn and grow as an artist with everyone :)

Neptune (Purple Heart) you wearing Miko Aiba of Outfit of Cross Edge would be cute.
