The struggle was real

Art

So I kept seeing art made with Posca pens aaaaalll over instagram and I decided that I just *had* to get some to try out! So I bought some the other day when I went shopping for art supplies and I did a small sketch to test them on. Let's just say it didn't turn out as well as I wanted it to. They require a very different method of colouring than I'm used to and I should have bought thinner ones than I did if I'm honest but the test pens were pretty old and so they looked different. I know it's not great and I really messed up on the ears but other than that I kind of like it? It let me experiment with using a limited colour palette while also using brighter colours when I usually go for a more toned down colour palette with my art. I noticed the pens got kinda dry half way through though....

Do you guys draw? If you do, what kind of things do you like to draw? Have you tried posca pens before? 😊💛

    Thank you so much! The pens were a little bit of a struggle to work with but I'm pretty pleased with the results! Just gonna go back and fix any little things I think 😊💛

  • T R E E T O P LV.26 Super Star Jul 7, 2020, 06:00 AM

    Nice job overall, I couldn't draw what you drew to save my life. 😂

  • Elfi LV.30 Rare Candy Jul 7, 2020, 06:43 AM

    Nuuu I'm sure you could, even if it took a little practice c:

  • Elfi LV.30 Rare Candy Jul 7, 2020, 06:43 AM

  • Elfi LV.30 Rare Candy Jul 9, 2020, 06:11 AM

  • Papiulevic LV.28 Clearly Hacking Jul 9, 2020, 06:20 AM

  • Elfi LV.30 Rare Candy Jul 9, 2020, 06:27 AM

  • Papiulevic LV.28 Clearly Hacking Jul 9, 2020, 02:23 PM

  • Elfi LV.30 Rare Candy Jul 7, 2020, 05:43 AM

    Thank you so much!

  • §vinyl§ LV.30 Legend Jul 7, 2020, 05:44 AM

    No thanks needed

  • Privatebutter65 verified LV.31 Dub Collector Jul 7, 2020, 05:38 AM

    Oooooo I like the art style
    I do not draw cause I a lazy boi

  • Elfi LV.30 Rare Candy Jul 7, 2020, 05:43 AM

    Thank you! I've been trying to develop my own art style for my animation portfolio and I feel like it's been heavily inspired by Loish, Pernille Ørum and Ladowska. I wanna try a more storybook-like one in the future though because I adore the kinda styles like Heikala's 🥺💛 my pfp on discord is by Heikala actually c:



    You neeeeeddd to draw though! I wanna seeeee!!

  • Privatebutter65 verified LV.31 Dub Collector Jul 7, 2020, 05:48 AM

    Oooooo I looked at all their art styles and they’re all sooo good, not the biggest fan of pernille although it’s still amazing. Heikala is the best outta the bunch though, one of her pics (not sure what it’s called but she’s underwater (I think) and their’s fish bones I guess) gives me the subnautica vibes and her art style is soooo gooooood

  • Elfi LV.30 Rare Candy Jul 7, 2020, 05:51 AM

    Pernille gives me Kimpossible vibes tbh, idk if you know that show but it was gooodddd

    yeah I really like Heikala's art, it's super cute and I love all the different scenes and stories she makes!

  • Privatebutter65 verified LV.31 Dub Collector Jul 7, 2020, 06:05 AM

    Pernille gives me disney princess vibes

  • Elfi LV.30 Rare Candy Jul 7, 2020, 06:11 AM

    YEAH!!

    Heikala makes me think of the moomins

  • Typical Gaymer LV.28 Anchor Jul 7, 2020, 05:39 AM

    I've tried drawing a couple times, but never really got into it

  • Elfi LV.30 Rare Candy Jul 7, 2020, 05:58 AM

    That's fair enough :) it's not for everyone

  • IsthisaSock LV.24 Supersonic Jul 7, 2020, 05:40 AM

    I like to draw, but I can't. The drawing looks awesome

  • Elfi LV.30 Rare Candy Jul 7, 2020, 05:58 AM

    I'm sure you can :)

  • IsthisaSock LV.24 Supersonic Jul 7, 2020, 07:03 AM

    no I can't, thanks btw

  • Elfi LV.30 Rare Candy Jul 9, 2020, 06:12 AM

    No problem. I'm sure that if you practice enough though you'll improve ^^

    looks good! I've never used posca pens and I probably never will, I've always just relied on pencils and digital art. Also my dad got a new pad for work, but he barely needs to use it so he has allowed me to use it. Might make something with it to share :)

  • Elfi LV.30 Rare Candy Jul 7, 2020, 06:43 PM

    Sounds great! I'd love to see it

  • Vιɳɳιƙ^^ verified LV.31 Dream Chaser Jul 8, 2020, 09:25 PM

    what do you mean you kinda messed up it looks great

  • Elfi LV.30 Rare Candy Jul 8, 2020, 09:31 PM

    the ears look weird to me, and the pens kept drying up 😅 resulting in some weird lines

  • Vιɳɳιƙ^^ verified LV.31 Dream Chaser Jul 8, 2020, 09:32 PM

    still looks great! btw here is the final result of my mozzie drawing

  • Elfi LV.30 Rare Candy Jul 8, 2020, 09:44 PM
