The Trials And Tribulations Of Screen Tearing. (21/01/2016)

There is a perspective error in this piece, which I did not notice at the time of drawing it. The base of the monitor is 3 dimensional, while the desk is 2 dimensional. ^o^

Branches of foliage. (11/02/2016, 09/03/2016)

branches_of_foliage___11_02_2016__09_03_

This piece has various sources of inspiration.

One source of inspiration comes from my desire to do a more full-fledged take on drawing plant life. I quite liked what I did in my previous piece, called "Chunk of nature.", and was eager to expand upon that.

Another source of inspiration comes from the Unravel video game, and all of the stunning detail its level environments have. This piece was particularly influenced by the plant life from the Berry mire level. Additionally, the rope on the middle branch references the similar type of material that Unravel's playable character Yarny is made of, and also references trees in reality which have had ropes hung on or wrapped around their branches.

This piece also has a little bit of influence from Sonic The Hedgehog 3 & Knuckles. The tendril coil on the middle branch, and the large spotted mushroom on the bottom branch, are directly inspired by gimmicks in Mushroom Hill Zone.

MentumAuris Feline Hybrid. (09/04/2016)

mentumauris_feline_hybrid___09_04_2016__

There are quite a large range of inspirations behind this piece!

One of the biggest inspirations behind this piece was the fact that my previous animal-based piece, called "Friendly Fins.", turned out much better than I had anticipated. As a result of that, I was eager to try drawing another animal-based piece.

Another large inspiration behind this piece, and the starting point for it, was to draw a cat body, as they are one of my favourite animals. One of my family member's cats, who had black and white markings, and is sadly no longer alive, was lying down on my lap for a significant amount of time while I was drawing this. As such, this drawing has quite a bit of sentimental value to me.

As the drawing progressed, I incorporated visuals inspired by various other sources...

The size and styling of the spikes on top of the head are inspired by the spikes on top of Zomom's head.

The eyebrows and fur tuft on top of the head are inspired by the eyebrows and fur tuft on top of Crash Bandicoot's head.

The fur curls at both sides of the head are inspired by the curls at both sides of Classic Tails' head.

The muzzle area is inspired by the muzzle area of Sonic's head.

The size of the ears, the ears' inner fur tuft, and the spacing between the ears, are inspired by the ears of Braixen.

The outer tufts of fur on the bottom tips of the ears are inspired by the ear tufts of Sticks.

The tuft of fur on the bottom of the head, inbetween the ears, is inspired by goatee style beards.

The accented tip of the tail in inspired by the tip of tails seen on foxes.

The fur patterns themselves are inspired by those seen on black and white cats, however the smoothness of those patterns are inspired by markings seen on cows.

Mentum is the Latin word for chin. Auris is the Latin word for ear.

Gloopincerig. (14/04/2016)

gloopincerig___14_04_2016__by_naean-db7b

The pincer is inspired by the pincer on the front of house robot Dead Metal from the Robot Wars television shows.

The gloop is inspired by the gooey elements of the Goodra Pokémon.

The satellite dish styled element is inspired by some similar elements from one of my previous pieces, called "Aquatic Architecture.".

The name Gloopincerig is a portmanteau of three words: gloop, pincer, rig. These words represent the main items in this piece, with the word rig referring to the overall mechanical structure.


Cryptic cracks and curls. (14/04/2016)

cryptic_cracks_and_curls___14_04_2016__b

Some elements of this piece are influenced by one of my previous pieces, called "Abstract Combinations.".

The Rusty Ruins Of Richard Jacques (27/09/2014)

A drawing that I have done on an individual sheet of A4 paper.

I drew this piece while listening to this YouTube video on loop.

Most of the elements in this drawing are inspired by Rusty Ruin Zone from Sonic 3D Blast: Flickies' Island. (Specifically the SEGA Saturn iteration.)

The lamp post is inspired by lamp posts in White Park Zone from Sonic The Hedgehog 4: Episode II.

While I was feeling a bit under the weather, I wanted to distract myself by drawing, so I created this concoction, and titled it accordingly. :-3

Wow, this thread literally becomes your personal showcase website. I feel like I got to write my feedback here just so at least you have a reflection to look and consider. But since I understand artists can be ultimately fragile, I'll put my comment under spoiler tab. Feel free to read or not. The point is that my comment is not to amuse you or to bash your work.

Rural decadence. (28/11/2016, 29/11/2016)

rural_decadence___28_11_2016__29_11_2016

A drawing that I have done on page 3 in my Daler-Rowney A4 Optima Spiral Pad.

My main inspiration behind this piece is from the various nature oriented pieces that were painted by Bob Ross in his television show The Joy of Painting. In fact, this piece was drawn entirely while watching and listening to episodes of the show on Twitch's website. The page for this can be found here: https://www.twitch.tv/bobross

The blue and purple colouring at the bottom portion of this piece is supposed to represent the sea, while the blue colouring at the top of this piece is supposed to represent the sky. My attempt at drawing the sea and sky didn't come out nearly as obvious as I would have liked, but I still am very fond of this piece overall nonetheless.  :)

Glass Stained Abstract Pane. (10/12/2016)

glass_stained_abstract_pane___10_12_2016

A drawing that I have done on page 4 in my Daler-Rowney A4 Optima Spiral Pad.

A couple of inspirations behind this piece are from blocky abstract art, and also from some stained glass that I have seen on some buildings in my city's town area. I thought that it would be interesting to combine these two elements together. Additionally, the shape of the encompassing black frame was inspired by the shape of the Microsoft Windows 8 operating system logo.

robotic_emotions_of_uncertainty__by_naea

The ears on the head are inspired by the top of one of the flowers from Green Hill Zone in Sonic The Hedgehog (SEGA Genesis/Mega Drive).

The fingers on the hands (Excluding the thumbs.) are inspired by fingers on the hands of Metal Sonic.

native_nature_nurture_guardian__by_naean

The hair-esque ears have a combined inspiration from 2 sources: one of them is the hair on the Bubbles character from The Powerpuff Girls franchise, the other is the ears on the Milla Basset character from the Freedom Planet video games.

The eyes (Except the pupils.), nose and mouth are inspired by the faces on characters from the Happy Tree Friends series.

The muzzle is inspired by the muzzle on Miles "Tails" Prower.
