<Egbert>. About 2 hours, max? Drawn on S Note with a phone pen.
My tablet pen is still missing, so I can’t make any new digital art. Even so, I still have a small stack of old ones I never bothered to upload, so here they are. This one comes from September 2016, if I’m right.
This is John Egbert from Homestuck, back when my friend first started reading it. I made this as a “welcome/congratulations” gift for her since I love Homestuck, but unfortunately she never actually finished the Web comic. Still waiting on the day they finally release Hiveswap, but I doubt I’ll ever really lose interest in the comic.
: 2 hours (rounding up). Drawn using Kleki software (kleki.com)
After mucking about with a mouse and the program for roughly 1.5 hours, I finally got a satisfactory result. The previous icon picture is now used as the little symbol up at the top!
It’s actually surprisingly easy to draw with a mouse, although it’s still much easier to use a traditional pencil and paper or drawing tablet. It’s fun to do when you’ve got nothing better to, though. Maybe I’ll do this again another time. I’m a little irked that, because I’m using the mouse, it’s difficult to do almost anything that isn’t drawing the strokes itself, but the uneven lines that came out from the process has its own charm.
(Yes, this is just generally an “arts” blog – so as long as something falls under that branch (Literary Arts, drawing, etc.) it’s probably going to end up here at some point. The only question is when.)
