Hi! I'm Liz, and this is my art/cosplay and commissions blog. There will be some fanart as well as some of my original work. Anything NSFW is put under a cut. Constructive criticism is welcome, and my ask box is always open. Currently taking commissions.
As many of you may know, I recently started school to become a prosthetic makeup artist. It’s going very well, and I’m partway through my fashion makeup course as we speak.
Though I love having my art blog to post art on, I think it would be better to separate my makeup work on to a separate blog.
While it is mostly just classroom practice work right now, I’m setting up an online portfolio for myself at the above url. Eventually the practice work will be replaced with professional images, as I work through my school portfolio photoshoots.
But for now, this can at least exhibit the work I am currently doing in class. So please follow if you are interested! I hope you enjoy my work.
I decided to continue with my self portrait project. We all have very warped views of what we look like, and what we wish we could look like. Here is my take on that.
I’d drawn the top picture as an attempt to draw myself as I would without any sort of personal bias, like I was drawing a portrait of somebody else. Obviously it’s not perfect still, but I did my best to be objective.
The second image (middle left) I drew afterwards (a day later), working from my memory of the first sketch, plus my own memory of what I look like.
The third sketch (middle right) was drawn right after the second, and is I guess what you would call my ideal self. What I would look like if I could choose my appearance.
I don’t really know what else to say about this. I think the images kind of speak for themselves. I added my original reference shot so you can see how far each image differs from the truth.
I’ve been told I have a very warped view of myself (because of bad self image) and all a lot of my self portraits end in tears because I draw myself so ugly. So here is me trying to draw myself the same way I draw portraits of other people, without bias.
I also tried to work from a photo which was more or less a straight on shot, as opposed to the top angle shot I usually use to hide my neck. I wanted it to be honest.
I still have mixed feelings about the result, but it’s much better than my other attempts, which I will not post, because they are very sad.
I haven’t drawn any animals in ages, but I’ve been getting really in to werewolf stuff again, so I figured it was time to start practicing. It’s a bit of a wonky doodle. I really wish I had my scanner working.
I just moved and my scanner isn’t unpacked so I can’t scan things I’m so sorry
I made this new villager for AC: New Leaf today. His name is Spook and he’s a ghost boy who lives in the haunted house near Coconut Beach. He’s really shy, but he wants to be a dancer and loves going to Club lol when he’s not creeping around his house.
I based him on my old pokemon OC, Spook, who was a Clefable until he died and became a Gengar. He misses dancing with his Clefairy sisters.
