Daily Drawing #255

Life Drawing studies from today!

These are all shown in order of how the session went. I always wish we could do more gestural 1 minute poses at the start. I find them exciting and really great to do to challenge yourself.

Also one model in particular (the one featured in the last 20 minute pose in the foreground in blue and pink colour pencil) had the most intense stare! O__O He had some great poses too. Especially the one in the first few 1 minute poses where he balanced on his head! Crazy good. :)

I went to the ‘Art In Action' show in Oxford today.
I made a friend. We had tea. We were most civilised. ^u^

(These fantastic wire sculptures were by Rachel Ducker.)
It was a great day though! Lots of incredibly talented artists. Very inspiring. But only 4 illustrators?! You kidding me? Other than that, it was really very good. I don’t think I’ve been to a more organised event. The best thing was the practical workshop tents. You could do so many arty things (for all ages). Man, what a great thing to see. Recommended for all. Can’t wait for next year! :D

I felt like drawing a comic so I did a lame InuxKag one because I wanted to.
(Note: This is set after the finished Manga series.. I don’t know if Kagome can actually travel back to her time or not?! It was kind of unclear when I read it.. I would hope she could! But even so, in this comic I assumed she could. Also I’m not entirely happy with the way I portrayed Kagome, but I will use the “it’s late” excuse yet again.. forgive me.. ;A; )

'Together In Paris'
This film defined me in the 90s. I have so many fond memories of it. It was the first film to make me cry! (I was 8!) ;A; The music! The costumes! The everythinggg <3
I don’t think I’ve ever drawn fanart for this before so I had to rectify that! xD 
Also here’s a fun and AMAZING video of Anastasia ON ICE. I found it whilst searching for reference material.. HOW DID I MISS THIS AS A CHILD I WANNA GO BACK AND SEE IT SO BADDD T___T

Daily Drawing #250

"There&#8217;s a world.. 
There&#8217;s a world I know.. 
A place we can go..
Where the pain will go away..&#8221;

An interpretation of the song "There&#8217;s a World" from the musical, Next to Normal. It takes place in a dream-like sequence, where the protagonist (Diana) imagines a dance with her son in the song, "I Dreamed a Dance".
I&#8217;ve always imagined what it would be like filmically.. Everything in this moment in the musical is incredibly emotive and beautiful.
Forever an underrated musical.

P.s. pssst! The full show is online! [x] (Thank you blessed people! I&#8217;m still waiting for a UK release! &gt;:[ )
"I Dreamed a Dance" starts at 49.45, but I do suggest watching the whole thing of course!

michellemichiemich asked:

Hi! Your drawings are lovely! Where do you get your inspiration and your style from? :3

Hello! Thank you so much, I’m so glad you like them! x3

Oh gosh that really is a tough qu!

Style-wise, I think when I was in my teenage Manga obsession phase I took a lot of influence from Matsuri Hino’s work on Vampire Knight (because of the way she drew hands and hair specifically!) as well as Rumiko Takahashi’s work on Inuyasha. (Man, I was suuuper obsessed by Inuyasha!) Two very different artists, but I loved both styles equally. I developed my ‘style’ from there on, and now I look at a lot of different artists for inspiration..

I really can’t pinpoint what/where my style falls under because I’m currently trying to push it different ways (graphic/illustrative, etc) but here are a list of artists (that I can think of right now) who I currently love to view and get inspired by their work! But really, I just love to search tumblr and find super cool artists at random. I think I spend most of my time just doing that tbh! But anyway, here are a few examples of super cool artists I love:

Sara Ogilvie, Shirley Hughes, Matthew Cruickshank, Lorelay Bove, Mary Blair, Claire Keane, Jeff Turley, Arthur Rackham, Edmund Dulac, John Singer-Sargent, Toulouse Lautrec, Alphonse Mucha, (basically anything pre-Raphaelite or Impressionst!) Jillian Tamaki, Isabelle Arsenault, Cyril Pedrosa, Marc Davies, Tove Jansson, Judith Kerr, Genevieve Godbout, Kali Ciesemier, Tiffany Ford, Daniela Strijleva..and many more!

Whoa, sorry this is a bit of a ramble! But I hope this answers your qu! Tysm! <3
