May Art Dump

Hey friends! Wow this year has been a lot so far. Didn’t realize how long it’d been since I posted some art here! So here goes, a selection of some of the things I’ve made this year so far:

Here’s some various tree-scapes I did in February. I was getting more of a handle on some new paints I’d acquired, as well as getting more used to the brushes I was using (primarily a menso brush and a small round brush). I also expanded upon the whole “neat vignette” thing by adding more of a foreground and background, even if simple ones.

In March, I continued with the landscapes, but also noodled around with some character designs and such with different pens and pencils. This in addition to playing around with ink on my paintings again.

In April, I did some more stuff — a page of various ideas I was noodling with that, at the suggestion of a friend, I turned into more of a map of various ideas and places and characters I was experimenting with. I also used a fancy Kakimori dip pen nib for some Patreon rewards, which you can see in the second picture. That thing is a blast to work with, lemme tell ya. It holds a ton of ink and gets nice line variation.

Anyway, that’s about it for this update! I hope y’all enjoyed what I was working on.

December Update

Hey friends! It’s been a while since I’ve shared anything new here. The work I did during the first half of the year really caught up with me and led me to have to slow down quite a bit. But I’ve still done some cool stuff! I’ll document some of it here.

I’ve done several paintings, but here’s the noteworthy ones that I have scans of.

Below is a quick landscape I did in preparation for a much larger commission I did for a friend. I rather like the weird, acid-yellow/green sky with the haunting blood-red moon. It’s ominous in a way I enjoy.

Below are some fun watercolor and ink trees I painted, as I was easing back into the medium after burning out on it for a bit after the afore-mentioned large commission I did. I had fun with these, and they’re the first ones I did using some “self-evolving” watercolors I bought, which granulate in interesting ways as they dry.

Below are some more trees I painted, using those self-evolving paints. I rather enjoy the granulation and hints at a background that they include.

Below is another painting I did, but this one was with the intent of doing a full-page painting again. I hadn’t quite had the energy to do so for a while, but I’m branching out again and I rather like this as a first attempt.

Beyond that, I did a little bit of music, but not a whole lot. I’m still figuring out what my values and desires for my music are, after releasing so much earlier this year. Any new, little pieces I did can be found at my SoundCloud, which you can find below. Here’s an embedded link of the newest one I’ve done.

Thank you for reading this post! I’ve been uploading stuff more regularly at my Patreon. If you wanna check that out, I’ll drop a link below:

Summer Art Update

Hey friends! It’s been *several* months since my latest update here. I’ve been doing a bunch of sketching and music, but most of that’s ended up over on Patreon (behind a 3-day delay between sharing and being public).

Anyway, here’s some art!

As you can see, I’ve been developing much more confidence and competence in my line work and painting now that I’ve gotten back into watercolors! I’ve found my happiness in it, at long last.

Anyway, that’s all for now! I’ll try to be better about updating this page more frequently in the future.

September Art Roundup

Hey friends! It’s been a bit since I’ve collected a bunch of my recent art on here, so here goes!

Above are a bunch of trees I did recently. The two with color are birthday gifts I did for a couple friends, and the other two are experiments I did while puzzling out a new method of doing art.

Above are more sketches I did, fiddling around with a different pen (the first two) and getting more experimental with my brush pen. I’ve actually finally worn out my brush pen after three years, so I’m waiting on a new tip to arrive in the mail soon.


Well, there’s the post! I hope you enjoyed reading and looking at my art. I’ll catch y’all later! <3

Update – 03 May 2019

Wow, jeez, it’s been over three months since I’ve updated this blog. Been a weird few months too, but it’s been relatively decent. Lemme give y’all a synopsis.

Through early Feb, I was on a great roll with art, and then through the rest of Feb and into March I was in a bit of a funk; same for with most of April. I got some work done on the game, did some good writing, and have done a few cool illustrations since then.

However, most of my time has been spent working on handling my depression better. Hence why this blog has been neglected for so long. I’ve still been posting on my Patreon every couple weeks, at least. Most of those posts end up free for the public to see, if you’d like to catch up on my activities there!

ODP Poem – “Dragon”

A green dragon with wispy yellow wings makes a silly face. It holds onto a grey-blue tree with an eye at its base. The tree is surrounded by beige stones that look like teeth.

Dragon

by Anthony Jutz

Bright as the night,
It slithers behind the moon.
 
But during the day,
It whispers in the clouds.
 
Within the atmosphere,
The world is its throne.
 
Its kingdom its own,
Ruled by none.
 
Tread lightly,
Beware the dragon’s words.
 
For where reality meets unreality,
Truth is but a wish.
 
Now go,
Go softly.
 
And breathe,
Breathe the dream.
 
The dragon calls.

Drawing Process: Dr. Petrol

Hey everyone! I figured now is a good time to post some of my current process for drawing. Today’s process is of a character I’ve been developing: Dr. Petrol. They’re part of a biological incident clean-up crew, and that’s about as far as I’m at for backstory so far.

Anyway, without further ado, here’s the photos and explanations!
