CJ-Salinas's Profile Picture
Artist | Hobbyist | Traditional Art
United States
Nice to meet all of you, I am a young artist who hopes to someday become a Multimedia Artist and Animator. As well as become a comic artist and graphic novelist. But everyone has that dream I guess now a days... I am marked down as a hobbyist because I feel like my artwork isn't professional enough give myself that title yet. I may not post too often, but I will update every now or so. Also expect several sketches, concepts and drawings to appear at random times as I have a tendency to upload in a bizarre fashion. Including going inactive for a month or less with several uploads.


Lazy Sunday
It's been a while since I posted here, so I decided to sketch something. Usually I take longer on my sketches to make sure they look "good". But for this one It only took me a couple of hours and was kinda happy with the results. However I feel as though it was made lazily, and without effort since I can draw better than this.
Inami Mahiru Inked Sketch
This is the final version of the gesture test sketch, as I mentioned in a previous status update I messed up along the inking and made it look messier than usual. As for overall results this how I like to make most of sketches look, either with graphite all the way or ink all the way.
-Colors make me nervous as I can't add the same effects as I do with ink and graphite.
-I wonder how my "comics" would look with this type of shading style or style in general?
Damn it!!!
I was working on the final inking of Inami, and i screwed it up.
I will still upload it when it's finished, i'm gonna regret it later though.
I managed to complete one of the sketches for this gesture practice. I plan to do more like this, it will help me improve on poses and human figure "correctly".
-Also to add in this is not the original Inked Inami sketch, this is a copied form that I colored over. The original is still untouched as I was debating whether or not to color the sketch so I made a duplicate. I am planning to fully ink the original since that's the style I usually do.
-Before anyone mentions, my printer is broken but the scanner still works. I had to print copies at my college campus and the copier ended up printing it too light so the ink turned gray. That's why the outline looks so pale.
