Marker Practice by torsor
Marker Practice
Picked up some Copic flesh tone markers and wanted to try them out. Combined them with some Prisma color markers. Love the Copics, I like the Prismacolors as well (especially the fine tip point) but copics blend so well and apply evenly. Most are existing characters, the rest are either random Instagram pics or made up.

Korra Sketches by torsor
Korra Sketches
Was late getting on the Avatar/Korra train. While I loved both series, when all is said and done, I preferred the story of Avatar: The Last Airbender, but loved the character designs of Korra. This sketch piece was done while binge-watching episodes.

Ever woke up and suddenly hated ALL of your art?

Well, that happened to me yesterday. As I look at my gallery, I find most of my pieces souless or at least missing any true interest. A result of my impatience in giving pieces extended time as well as my limited amount of time to draw.

I have so many things that shaped my artistic life. So many things that I loved as a child that I always dreamed of being able to draw with any sort of real competence...that I never have. Instead, I've drawn things that at least subconsciously would be relatively easy for me to draw or were popular. Not that there's no an overlap between what I like and what is popular, but I need to branch out, spend time thinking through each piece, and really draw.

Where are the pictures of Link? Metroid? Or geez, Optimus Prime? Robotech? Thundercats? How have I not drawn Victoria Hand yet?

So, long story short, I've decided that what I need to do is to start fresh. I don't feel that my gallery really represents me as a person. Nor do I feel that the pieces are true examples of what I'm capable of if I simply devote more time to them. As such, DRASTIC action will be taken. I will be deleting MOST of my pieces from my gallery. If there are any you particularly enjoy, I would save them asap. Thank you for favoriting any of them in the first place. Seeing that others appreciate my art is what helps me to keep going when I hit slumps.   

It is my hope that seeing a barren gallery will inspire me to draw whenever I can in order to fill it again. 

Some of the pieces I feel are structurally okay, I will be going back to in order to refine, recompose or otherwise improve before reposting. Thanks for your support and for those of you who actually take the time to read through this rant. =) I hope that you will enjoy the new pieces that will result from my renewed focus.
