Yes hello, this is Chain! I like to draw, and even though I'm not very good at it, I'm always up to practice and get better. Normally people follow me here, which, while technically a side blog, functions as my main and personal. But if you're not interested in that and just want to see art, you're at the right place! (Or rather wrong, since I hardly ever post anything here, much less of quality.)
Okay so I’m not posting anything of the actual thing but can I help that I’m kind of digging my process rn?
It’s just flow-y and easy-proportion-and-line-and-weight-and-balance-y and I’ve got height lines for accuracy and different body types and fun outlines and
I just like drawing.
la la la now that it’s been officially accepted as LAV’s logo i can finally post this
here have a thing
(LAV btw is the Les Amis Vlog project, which is a really really cool initiative where dozens of actors and writers have come together to create an ongoing video-blog series from the PoVs of the various Les Mis characters in a modern life setting, its really rad and you can check it out here. i made this for them just randomly because i love the project so much. and may also write for it.)
oh yeah and its 100% freehanded from just pencil and a handful of markers that i scanned onto the computer so forgive the quality kthxbai
A lot of people think I use watercolor, but I’m way too lazy for that. So, I just made a straight-up full blown tutorial for this Ask because it’s so complicated. Here are links to purchasing materials:
- Toned Paper
- Col-Erase Pencils, Prismacolor Pencils
- Brush Pen
- Felt Tip Pens (Other brands: Copic, Sakura, Faber Castell Pitt)
- Markers (Other brands: Prismacolor)
- White Paint Marker (make sure it’s the water-based one)
Method is based off Peter Han’s CGMW/CDA/ACCD course, Visual Communication.

No one before Bernini had managed to make marble so carnal. In his nimble hands it would flatter and stream, quiver and sweat. His figures weep and shout, their torses twist and run, and arch themselves in spasms of intense sensation. He could, like an alchemist, change one material into another - marble into trees, leaves, hair, and, of course, flesh.

This episode was almost pornographic. It was awesome.
