Nothing quite breeds procrastination like working freelance from home. Today it resulted in a collection of some good tutorials that are useful for both traditional and digital drawing/painting. Check out the collection among my favourites. There are some really talented people behind these tutorials.

I think it's easy to underestimate how much we can learn form tutorials, guides and stuff like that. I've often thought "hey, I don't need to read, I need to practice!". And it's true. But at the same time it can be a lot easier to practice with some guidelines to start from.

So, yeah. Check out a tutorial. Keep practising. And remember that it's all about doing something you love, right?
Bounty hunting by Drak-Joen

I realized that I haven't drawn anything manga-ish in ages. So I decided to do so again and ended up with this.

I've noticed that one-eyed women seem to be something of a trope or recurring theme within manga and anime. Though it seems more usual that the character has damaged an eye rather than lost it completely. My theory is that this has something to do with the frustrating horror of making eyes look symmetrical. Yes, I said it. That is why there's an eyepatch here.
