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.

 

branches_of_foliage__by_naean-db73ojl.pn

 

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.

 

mentumauris_feline_hybrid__by_naean-db78

 

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 is 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.

 

gloopincerig__by_naean-db7bt33.png

 

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.

The Rusty Ruins Of Richard Jacques

 

the_rusty_ruins_of_richard_jacques_by_na

 

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

 

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

All-seeing Tassles Totem.

 

all_seeing_tassles_totem__by_naean-dbau7

 

A drawing that I have done on page 2 in my Daler-Rowney A4 Optima Spiral Pad.

 

My main inspirations behind this piece are totem poles in Green Hill levels from the Sonic Generations video game, and in particular, the totem poles and tribal elements in various levels from the classic Crash Bandicoot video games.

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.

 

 

 

I see most of your works here involve patterns, abstract art, and symmetry art. I understand what you are trying to achieve, whatever the artistic reason may be lying under your artwork.

 

What I would like to talk about is the delivery of your ideas. All of them looks whacked. Skewed shape, asymmetrical symmetries, overly chaotic abstract, unstable lining kill your arts - badly. Not to mention the way you wrote and design some of the titles, the way you draw the box for the 'published date' are completely un-presentable.

 

My suggestion to you would be to try to use technical tools such as shape ruler and compass. Lastly, write the title neatly. No need to force fancy typeface, unless you know how to make one that collaborates with the art. You may put the title together with your name or signature on the bottom right hand side, while keeping their size within the necessary amount. Let the picture be presented first before the viewer's eyes finding the title/name.

 

Good luck

Rural decadence.

 

rural_decadence__by_naean-dbb6f09.png

 

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.

 

glass_stained_abstract_pane__by_naean-db

 

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

 

There are two main inspirations behind this piece: One is blocky abstract art, and the other is 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 is inspired by the shape of the Microsoft Windows 8 operating system logo.

Robotic emotions of uncertainty.

 

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.

 

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.

 

The heels are inspired by the stick of the Braixen character from the Pokémon series. Also, while not a deliberate inspiration, the left and right sides of the waist are also likely to be subconsciously inspired by the waist of that same character.

I know that I haven't uploaded a new art piece for quite a while, but no worries, I'm on the case with this new drawing in progress! :-3

I've been working on, and got distracted by, other things for some time. I'm getting back to my art now though, and estimating that I'll finish this piece by roughly mid-November.  🙂

The Molten-Mechanical Clash.

 

the_molten_mechanical_clash__by_naean-db

 

A drawing that I have done on page 6 in my Daler-Rowney A4 Optima Spiral Pad.

 

The overall idea of the rocky fire is inspired by Lava Reef Zone Act 1, however the fine details of the molten magma is inspired by the finely detailed foliage ground in Mushroom Hill Zone, both from Sonic The Hedgehog 3 & Knuckles (SEGA Genesis/Mega Drive).

 

The lazer gun is inspired by the Railgun weapon from Grand Theft Auto V (Microsoft Windows/Microsoft Xbox One/Sony PlayStation 4).

I'm starting a new art series, called Pokémon Customs!

 

pokemon_customs__logo_by_naean-dcasfur.p

 

In this art series, I'll draw each Pokémon's original outline, then fill the rest of it with my own details.

 

All art in this series will be done on individual A5 sheets, using BIC blue médium biro pen on Ryman Bright white card.

 

"Customs" logo segment, and name of this art series, are inspired by Los Santos Customs from Grand Theft Auto V. This art series' logo also uses a slightly edited variant of the original Pokémon logo.

 

The Pokémon Customs logo was designed using Serif DrawPlus X8 computer software.

Pokémon Customs: #2 - Ivysaur

 

pokemon_customs___2___ivysaur_by_naean-d


Apologies for some missing dates regarding when I worked on this piece.

I've had a mini rollercoaster of emotions recently, and I was quite stressed while this piece was a work in progress.

Due to this, I lost track of time, didn't work on this piece at a consistent pace, and didn't log down all dates.

 

Reference Source: https://www.pokemon.com/uk/pokedex/ivysaur.

 

 

Sorry for the later than intended art upload.  🙂

My internet connection stopped working on 03 June 2018, and it only came back online in the past few hours or so. This means that I was unable to carry out my Sunday art upload.  ^o^

Borders 'N' Panels

 

borders__n__panels_by_naean-dcexcoy.png

 

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

 

I've been busy during this past week or so, due to Father's Day, a family member's birthday, me going to the doctors, and everything surrounding E3's events.

 

After taking a break from art, and reducing my stress levels, I have resumed drawing. To help me return to my regular work on art, I have drawn this rather simple, somewhat rough piece.

 

The borders and panels are inspired by the different user interface themes from the three video games packaged within the Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy video game.
