Hi I'm Quinn. English/Art Major. Writer. Artist. Slytherin. Superwholockian.
I will take requests for drawings/sketches but I make no promises of quality. My art is extremely iffy so I really need the practice. I will also take au prompts for fandoms I'm a part of and try to pump out a few paragraphs for you. Or you can really ask me anything or message me if you just want to talk. I'm nice I swear

 

Any suggestions on which actor/actress I should try to draw with my tablet?Haven’t used it much so I’m really still experimenting.

here’s a guy I made up in my head. First time trying to do a face and color with my new tablet. A little quirky but what the hell I like it

Drawing finally done! Started 3 months ago, It took a way longer than I expected. I thought that drawing in white on black would be easier but not at all. The thing is, to have white really really white, I had to draw so many times that I’ve lost count (I killed 3 entire pencils to achieve it.)

The process was so long also because of the large size of the drawing; the principal difficulty was to do all these different lightings and shadows. My favourite part was to draw Sherlock climbing the stairs; I loved to draw the shadow on his coat and the staircase. But I didn’t enjoy so much drawing the hair of the profile, it drove me crazy! I was really happy when I put my signature at the end.

He also inspired me the idea for the composition of the drawing with this post.

See here, the work in progress:

White and light grey pencils on black paper - size 65x50cm (26”x20”)

This is the most gorgeous piece of fanart I have ever seen

I have so many great ideas for fanart but I also have no faith in my artistic abilities

Turning in my final project for art today: Lord of the Rings tarot cards. Aragorn looks like shit but I’m happy with the rest of them. Maybe when I finally get a pen tablet I’ll redo them. These were fun.

GUYS MY FINAL ART PROJECT IS DUE WEDNESDAY AND IVE DONE DIDDLY-SQUAT FOR IT!!! I AM SOOOO SCREWED!!!

Hey guys, for my final art project I’m doing Lord of the Rings themed tarot cards. If anyone has any suggestions on which cards in the Major Arcana the Fellowship should be, inbox me. I’ll probably post the cards when I’m done with them as well.

Does anyone use the Intuos pen tablets to draw?

 I’m thinking about buying one and want to know if people are pleased with them and if they’re good for beginners.

So I’m gonna take a break from all the Cumberbatch posts and put this up. 

So I’m in my first ever formal art class this semester and the assignment we had for this past week was to go to  library and photocopy our faces. Obviously to avoid the embarrassment of pressing my face to the scanner in a public library I used the scanner on my own printer instead. This was the best picture I got out of it.

Then we were supposed to transfer the picture to our full size drawing pad and turn it in on Monday. Here we go!

First square done now 15 more to do. I forgot to take a picture when it was halfway done so we’re just gonna skip to the finished product.

There was really no point to this story I just felt like sharing the first piece of art that I’ve been truly satisfied with in a while. Especially since the critique was harsh today.

Plus this is how i felt while scanning my face at midnight after a closing shift at work:

A scene from the Scandinavian folk tale Prince Lindworm, which I told in a rather rambling manner here. Honest apologies to the OP for my word-vomit. 
(I think someone also added the comment “Damn son you ate three of your wives,” and I have to agree that it’s an awkward detail in the aftermath. Ah, well. That’s fairy tales for you.) 


Beautiful

When people ask me if I’m an artist…

I always get so awkward because yeah I draw and I’m decent at it, but I don’t spend all my free time thinking about my next piece or drawing amazing things. I draw when it comes to me and when it comes down to it, I’ve always felt that you need some kind of professional skill to be considered an artist. I honestly don’t consider my art good enough to qualify me as an artist so my answer to that is always something like “sort of…” Or “I’m artistically inclined…?” I honestly had better figure out an answer soon if I want to be an animator…
