Title: Rora's Mediocre Fanart
Post by: Rora on April 08, 2014, 12:06:13 AM
So, I draw for a hobby, although I used to draw a lot more often than I do these days. I thought I might as well post some of my artwork to share with you guys. Please note, I'm very sensitive about my (lack of) abilities, so please be gentle. ;^;

MOST of what I draw is fanart for various JRPGs, although now and again I'll draw my OCs as well. Generally posted in Oldest -> Newest order within each section, although several of these are so old that I don't remember the exact order I actually drew them in. >_>;
I'm also not posting my REALLY old, super embarrassing stuff. Because... it's TOO embarrassing. ;^; Unless you guys REALLY want to see some of it, I might be able to be convinced, but... -hides-

...Note that several of these are unfinished as well. I'm terrible at finishing drawings. Like, just, so bad at it, oh my god.

Anyway, thanks for taking a peek! Feel free to comment on anything, but again, please be gentle. ^^; I'm no artist, just a wannabe.

These are really good! I wish I could draw that well, but I just get artistical spurts here and there that don't come often enough.

In any case, I clearly see the progress you've made, and there is so much potential for more.
Keep at it. c:

aaaaaaaaaa thanks guys, haha >w<

About the Hoppip, I collect grass-type Pokémon on a website I go to, and so I was catching a bunch of Hoppips... WAY TOO MANY of them had "Sturdy body" as their personality blurb thing (which is based on their IVs like in the games). It was just... really weird, since by definition Hoppip are the complete opposite of sturdy. So I drew what a "sturdy" Hoppip might look like. It was fun.

As I mentioned, I almost never draw anymore, which is a shame because I REALLY want to get better. I'm almost never inspired or in the mood, or I just... get discouraged or distracted with other things and never finish any drawings.

a-and yes I do call this mediocre, hahaha... I spend way too much time comparing myself to professionals and people with far, far more skill than I have, so I angst about it a lot, contributing to me never really wanting to draw anymore... it's a vicious cycle, and a significant part of it can be blamed on one of my ex-best-friends >_>  but I won't get into that.
