    Default Dolce's Sweet Sketches

    I'll be honest, and I won't lie I haven't drawn a thing in a long while. So I decided to make a thread showing off some old work of mine from the past 1-3 years. :3 Though I'm not so sure if I can keep this thread live and kicking, but I'll do my best! ;P

    Now that I'm a college art student aiming for a media arts & animation degree, the above is now entirely irrelevant. Though I do a majority of drawing for my classes each week, not much else admittedly. Usually it's 3-4 drawings per week depending on the class I take. So I wanted to share them here.

    As for a little bit of information about myself as an artist, as of now I purely do traditional work. And I am in the process of learning to do digital work. While I know a few things here and there I do not consider myself a digital artist at all.

    For the sake of improvement though, I do appreciate any and all critiques. Really don't hold back, be critical. I could always use the advice for future pieces! Will say though I don't take requests or anything of the sort since my classes keep me busy as is. And I do plan on working in the near future. So I don't plan on taking requests I can't fulfill.

    ✿ ✿ ✿ ✿ ✿ ✿ ✿ ✿ ✿ ✿


    I guess I'll start with the oldest work and work my way up to the newer stuff. So this first post will be part 1 with all the old stuff.

    First up is this random Caterpie! I wanted to draw, and color the most perfect Caterpie ever, but I murdered it cause I had absolutely no idea what to do for the background and pressed down too hard. Oh well. xD



    Next up is something I did for an English project in high school. And iirc we had to pick out a character(s) from Macbeth and write 10 dairy entries as them, and create a diary cover as well. So I went with the 3 witches. And since they had no names I named them Wisteria, Nemorosa, and Jessamine. I forget why.



    Now this lady has no intriguing back story whatsoever. :D Cause I drew her when I had a detention because I was late to class. Seriously my high school was stingy with that but whatever. xD



    This ones just a random drawing of a character from Shugo Chara named Kusukusu.



    And when I was in high school....no lie I had a weird "pen only" phrase where I drew in nothing but pen. So the following drawings are a result of that.

    This is a drawing of my favorite Touhou character Eirin Yagokoro done in pen. It's plain and simple with no background but it's still one of my favorites till this day mainly cause I love Eirin, and the whole Imperishable Night game from Touhou. ♥



    The next one is another Touhou character named Parsee Mizuhashi.



    This drawing is just a simple head sketch of Nel from Bleach. Nothing much other than I love how adorable Nel can be so I wanted to draw her. xD



    The following drawings are some characters from Negima!? drawn in their suka forms. Which are basically animal like Chibis. :P

    This trio would be Nodoka Miyazaki, Haruna Saotome, and Yue Ayase. The library trio. With Haruna in the middle cause she's awesome. :>



    This one is a drawing of Asuna Kagurazaka, and Ayaka Yukihiro bickering. Just cause I love how close these two are. ♥



    Next up are Ku Fei, and Satomi Hakase. Both too cute to resist imo. ;D



    And I believe this drawing is the last of my weird pen phase, but anyways this is Haku Yowane a Vocaloid. I ended up drawing her because a friend and I were having a contest to see who drew more like the other. And what's too bad for her was that I can't be beat. :P



    This drawing was from a shop project where we had to draw three different animals with 3 different kinds of materials. And this one of a Wagtail was the only one I ever finished for that project. And it's done in pencil ofc. :P



    Another shop project was making a children's book. So a friend and I decided on a counting book. And this is the first page from it. It's a character from an American Tail named Tiger.



    This is some random scenery done with acrylic paints.



    Some work that was done in charcoal, and chalk which looks horrible imo...but oh well.

    And now for the more recent stuffs! First is a random Elesa drawing. Going from a sketch to completely colored. And honestly I hate the end result. The 2nd one is sooooo much cuter. >:|



    And next up is my OC, who I named Erin Vine. She's a Professor in training, and Professor Ivy's niece. I'd spoiler the image but it's friggin' huge, so I'll just link her full body image here instead.

    Though here is a smaller colored version of her.



    This image is of Meenah Peixes from Homestuck all colored, and whatnot.



    And these next three is an OC of mine dressed up in some Pokemon costumes. The first being a witch-like Mismagius, a nurse Blissey, and a maid Glameow.



    And now the last of the drawings! Which is a mummified Meowth.

    Ohhh good eye. :3c And yes that's true. Though I have drawn some guys before, I'm still not good at drawing them. Cause anatomy can be a pain at times imo. But you know what they say "practice makes perfect". So I have no intentions on giving up even though I don't draw as much nowadays. x)

    Wow. The anime is much better than I could ever do. It's amazing.
    Many thanks to Blue Dragon for this amazing signature.

    I meant to bump this ages ago (maybe like 2 years ago even), but I've got a lot of new art to share because of the almost two year gap that's passed by. Plus it's always nice to see the old work when compared to the new work. It shows how much a person's art has changed. And I do feel like I improved over the years, so I hope it shows!

    Okay first up is a bunch of skulls, and bones. Apparently learning how the human skeletal and muscular system work helps with an understanding of anatomy according to the class I took, and I guess it's true even if I myself don't see it.

    Skulls (approx. 4 1/2 hours per sketch):


    Ribcage (approx. 5 hours):


    Arm and Leg Skeletal/Muscular Anatomy (approx. 2-3 hour per sketch):


    Hand bones (approx. 2 1/2 hours):


    Foot bones (approx. 2 1/2 hours):


    The following are some shading exercises I did in my basic drawing class:

    Circle (approx. 45 mins):


    Eggs (approx. 2 hours):


    And the following drawing is a gesture drawing that only took me 15 minutes to do, but it looks pretty neat though. In my opinion anyways.


    Next time I'll try to post and something cuter hopefully, but maybe you all will find the bones cool. xD

    Ooh, you're pretty good, Dolce! You certainly draw anime-style characters really well. ^^ And I wish I was as good with facial expressions as you are. Sometimes I just can't get my characters to show emotion even though I'm told I create good characters. xP

    I took drawing classes in school as well, btw, but my assignments never looked as good as yours. So lucky. Though, I do recall that I had done so well in perspective drawing that my teacher used my picture as an example for the class, and she was a professional artist herself!

    Thanks for the kind words Kelleo! And honestly my assignments take me hours on hours sometimes, getting something right in general is always a challenge really. Especially if you can't pinpoint how to draw certain expressions and whatnot. :P

    Don't worry, I know how you feel. Some of my artworks take hours upon hours to do as well because I keep correcting errors and messing up in trying to get something to look right. xP
