I thought I could doodle some dumb OCs last week to experiment with more styles.
And it’s good to take a break from fanart sometimes. :’D
These OCs were actually made accidentally from just brainstorming ideas with Rin, as always, lol. We always end up making stories and scenarios whenever we chat or talk about the most mundane of things.
The hairstyle just gets crazier probably due to ygo’s influence on me, lol but the spikes are from copious amounts of hair gel. So it’s not exactly his natural hairstyle. (And he’s a Marxist punk during a time setting that’s based on the 80s and 90s;a period that marked a destruction of the working class in the uk and in other places)
Obviously, I still have to enhance more of his design. I wanna add tattoos to the guy but its such a pain in the arse to have to keep drawing them so I’d rather not add them, haha.
Other doodles of them below:(18 yr old version and 40 yr old version)
I was actually pretty nervous posting these here because it’s not fanart but I wanna be able to post OCs here as well. ^^;;>
I wanted to post this last night but I was too exhausted I ended up falling asleep at front of my laptop, ORZ.
Some very old OCs of mine created back in High School that I painted on my hobonichi, lol.
I thought of drawing those and other random stuff to fill the many blank pages of my hobo. Unfortunately, I haven’t written/drawn there regularly compared to last year but I didn’t want to keep the planner blank. The main reason with the hobonichi being expensive, lol. I really can’t afford to waste them.
And it does help. I mentioned in my previous blog post that I struggled with not finishing sketches and being very irregular with my sketchbook. I’d end up getting sick of it and buy a new one and repeat the whole process again.
I was drawing heads everywhere. (many of them faceless) I barely went past the neck. Thinking about it now, it was probably because I didn’t know shit about the anatomy after them such as the upper and lower limbs, torso and pelvis so I couldn’t be bothered.
I lacked any knowledge on how they worked so I was merely stuck on heads, haha.
Gods, they were such a cluttered mess that I don’t feel bad throwing so many of them away. I regret the fact that it took years of this same kind of blunder and why it only took me joining the ygo fandom to take drawing seriously. But at the same time, I know that I’m a better artist now. Not as skilled as I want to be . I’m still learning more and always wanting to improve but I know I’m much better than “Only-drawing-heads Millie.”
Who knew being so guilty of buying an expensive planner and making sure I don’t waste a paper of it curbed those bad habits? lol. I’m saving up for another one for next year. 😀
