on style

The reason for this entry? I'll get to it in a second. First I'd like to mention one or two other things, though.   Like the question what a 'style' actually is. A way of dressing? Wearing only certain kind of accessory? Personal taste or trying to fit into a group? Maybe a bit of all of those things. Of course, what you wear or look like often influences the first impression people get of you. No wait, actually pretty much all the time. So what someone decides to wear should reflect what they'r

Inktober~

So today Inktober starts, and I will actually participate. Let's see how it goes

'Evolution' of... guess :D

Was inspired by Akaku: Master of Flight (how everyone does this fancy tagging, I have no idea :/ ) to make a timeline of my character over the years. So I did that. [regular link, until I figure out how to link thumbnails ^^] (~800kB) I couldn't find anything for 2011, so either I really didn't draw her in that year or I lost the scanned files. Don't feel like digging through my myriad or sketchbooks though, so I'll leave it blank for now. I know that especially around 2008-2009 the

Life, the universe, and... well

I do wonder if anyone still reads this, tbh ^^'   But for anyone who does, life is slowly returning back to normal, and I think that's a really good thing. Also, I'm about to finally finish my current sketchbook after 4 months, which is surprisingly fast for me - normally it takes at least half a year.

Bzpower Artist Interview #1 - Dwanny

The first one's there already? Why yes, it is. I hope you've been anticipating this as much as I have... And before we start, I would like to thank Dwannyfor taking the time to put up with me and my slight scatterbrained-ness, and all those I've pestered with pms. ^^'   So without any further ado, here's the interview!   1. When and why did you start drawing?   I really started drawing when I was three, drawing pirates, dinosaurs and the like. After a while, I realised that people liked what I

The 100th "self-portrait"

Ah idk I don't want to always just post every single redesign of my char to GA, that feels kinda spammy. So I'll just leave the sketch here. Actually I was out for some urban sketching yesterday, but after finding out that BZPower is back up - let's say I was inspired, and that happens so rarely these days that I let myself get distracted About the sketch itself, it was as always done in ballpoint pen, because I actually like that better than the regular pencil these days. ^^' Doesn't sm

Okay, looks like we are back?

Huh, that's good to know! (actually, I am delighted, but trying to play it cool. Working? I doubt it.) What have I been up to in the meantime? Mostly on holidays, and preparing for the new semster, as I decided to go back to uni - this time studying informatics. After all, I did pass the entrance exam, and may actually be able to skip some basic math lectures. That would be great. Oh yes, and I am playing Pathfinder with a group of friends now, dunno if I already mentioned it before.

Update (now there's a meaningful title...)

Update (now there's a meaningful title...)

The current state of things makes it really hard to tell interesting stories because let's face it, most time is spent at home. :/ Honestly the only positive thing is that I 'won' the time usually spent commuting, which does add up to 10h during the week, but that's about it. Doing everything in one place is hard, however. In fact, it's so hard that I had to improve my planning strategies and install two boards in my room where I track my tasks, both for home things and for university. At

Anaster

Remember that character WIP I posted way back? (yea, me neither. that's why I added the link). I finished her in the meantime, and just realized that I never got around to posting her here.^^'

name change (+art)

The pun was brought to my attention recently and it was way too good to pass it up, so here we go. Dawing this was great fun, tho.

Blogging from home

For me it's week 3 of being 'confined' to the metaphorical four walls of my home, and I think I am slowly adjusting. But how's the rest of you been these days? I hope you're all safe and well.

and back to regular life

except, not really. Everyone wears masks outside, and uni stays digital for the rest of the semester. idk how I feel about any of this.

Round and round we go - the 100th redesign

Long story short, I was recently reminded of the Clockwork Night game over in G&T ages ago, and realized that the character I played there had the same name as my usual OC/BZP namesake, if you will. And was an Agori/Protector - and that I'd never drawn her, so hey, why not redesign my 13-year-old OC again. So that's what I did, gleefully ignoring that everyone was supposed to be from the Jungle region so I can stick to the old colour scheme, and here we are. Notable design changes:

bad habits

Getting rid of them is surprisingly hard. So is changing eating habits. :/ Something of the sort is necessary though, because at the current rate of developments I can see the destination of the travel, and that's.... not where I'd like to be. In more clear words: I really need to lose weight. Got a plan figured out though, and I'm sticking to it. Still, it's a bit of an annoying topic for me. I mean no, I don't think I'm ugly or anything, and yes, I've always been on the heavier side, but this

amazing...

I realized I am skilled at many things, but none are needed in the current job market (I am not a programmer. I should be a programmer. People only seem to want programmers these days). Furthermore, at the same time I am overqualified for regular small jobs. This is not fun. :<   So yeah the plan is now to study informatics (and learn programming :> ) and at the same time find something to financially support myself enough to get by somehow.

2019 was a ____ year

.... idk how to properly summarize it, tbh. Made a larger decision that changed my life for the better, but it still took until Christmas for me to even halfway recover from what happened before. I just hope things won't excalate as much again, or rather, that next time I'll find the courage to quit a bad situation earlier on and not stay until it is almost way too much to bear. But there are positive things! I joined a Pathfinder campaign, and through that formed some really great friendsh

Throwback

to what IMO is the funniest thing I've ever drawn :] ... can't get over the fact that this drawing is 11 years old at this point. Time flies D:

Ask me anything

I've never, ever done one of these things in all the time I've been a member of this site. Always wanted to, though. So, now. Ask and ye shall receive (answers).

WIP: Character portrait for EOD

Figured I might as well post it here also. It's been a while since I've last drawn something even remotely Bionicle-related, so it's been a fun change. (also, including actual clothing instead of just random clothing-like elements? that's almost a first. Almost. I did do it back in 2009, but that's sooooo long ago...) Ah yes, and in case you're wondering what EOD is, check this out. (spoiler: it's a game)

Taka's inofficial art contest # 1    Yes, you heard me. I'm planning to host an art contest in here. A little one, but nonetheless. Everyone is welcomed to join.   Theme: create a spooky/Halloween-themed piece of art. Should have to do with Bionicle in some way, but you can do the characters in any style you want   Feel free to post your opinions here, and if you spot errors/things that need to be clarified, I'd ask you to tell me either via post here or pm (whatever your prefer).   1.
