In an effort to continue practicing my rendering and background abilities, have Twilight in the forest. Colorwise, I’m quite happy with this one- I was actually inspired by some concept art from Kubo and the Two Strings.
As I’m doing this, I’m realizing more and more that for the exceptionally skilled artists, the point I consider myself “done” is their halfway point. Between this and the Asriel drawing, if I spent more time adding the small details, I could really bring these drawings to life.
Something for myself to consider, moving forward.
Next time, I need to work on rendering characters!
Figured it's high time I updated this thing!
Name's Loel "Acesential" Jr., though most everyone just calls me ace. I started drawing more seriously when I was about 12 or 13, learning how to draw in the anime/manga style (a decision I regret nowadays, but what can you do?) I was never particularly skilled at it, and my arrogant and stubborn teenage brain kept me from improving substantially. For instance, I only seriously started drawing bodies when I was 15 (Yeesh...)
Around June of 2011, I came across the show My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic. Having been a great fan of classic cartoons of the 90s, I saw a lot to like in the show after the first two episodes. Soon afterwards, I became a fan, I became a brony.
And, I have to say, art-wise, MLP has helped me evolve greatly as an artist. I'm actually inking and coloring art and experimenting as well. Ironically, it's these ponies that made me eventually realize that I need to learn to draw realism, something I plan on doing once the summer rolls around. Odd how these things work, right?
I have aspirations of becoming an animator. As for what, I'm not sure. However, I've loved cartoons my whole life, and it would be a dream come true to work on them.
Beyond that, my interests also lie in video game creation. If you ever want to open up a dialogue about video game design, feel free to message me! I love that kind of discussion.
Well, that's it! An anime artist turned brony who wants to go into animation! Check out my gallery, and leave a comment/critique! More towards the latter, if possible!
