Zeke-Yggrassil's Profile Picture

Artist | Hobbyist | Digital Art
Q: Oh, you're swedish and your username is like that mythological tree yggdrassil! Was there a reason for leaving the d out?
A: ... y-yeah definitely. Definitely did not accidentally misspell it it or anything

Q: Is Zeke your real name?
A: No, but it was from a long time ago when I was trying to sort the users on my computer, and the user "guest" was atop of my own (my real name is a bit further down the alphabet, and the users are sorted alphabetically). Thus became the birth of "Zeke"

Q: Why are your drawings always in portrait and not landscape? I can't set it as my wallpaper!
A: I literally draw with only half of my monitor (and thus tablet), I need the other half for references and inspiration

Q: What do you use to draw?
A: Wacom intuos and SAI. Photoshop for color balance/boost with the "curves" function mostly

Araceli - iScorpion-Ermac-Girl Color [Request]
This piece is a bit different, since I started itout as a black white piece and then added color, focusing more on values rather than color. I didn't realize until later that when I color, it becomes reaaaaally monotone

at least the shading is a lot better than my other ones? I don't think I'm going to run a values only anymore. The trade off of the monocolor just doesn't seem worth it to me, but I did learn quite a bit

request by :iconiscorpion-ermac-girl:
character based on mortal combat

also no spikes because I tried it out and couldn't make it work :/


UPDATE: changed coloring type from effect = color to gradient map
Fleeting like a Mayfly [Kabaneri - Mumei]
4 exams + drivers test coming up in early june. Picture describes how I feel about that

jokes aside, I have been finding a ton of faults in my drawings, mostly my color choice. I also need to work on general shading, as that's what I'm finding myself having the most trouble with.
I also know that I need to change my workflow from drawing detail -> detail to rough -> general scultping -> detail. I'm will also be experimenting with drawing only in BW to get a better grasp of values

LoL Challenge Annie [Speed paint 45 min]
i haven't been continuing this series in a really long while. Here is a new attempt at it, where I set a time limit of 45 min on myself. The anatomy looks really wonky, but I was just trying to get it somewhat done before time ran out. Granted I could probably have set it to 60 min and then had those 15 min adjusting, but hindsight is 20/20. It might sound weird, but it feels quite refreshing to rush an image without caring too much of the quality
