Don't you hate it when...

Journal Entry: Sat Oct 4, 2014, 12:32 AM manage to find some time to draw, then end up squandering that time because the picture just isn't working? yesterday, i decided to be bad and use a couple hours to sketch out an idea that popped into my head (when i should have been working). sketching and inking it barely took any time at all and things were going well, but then it all fell apart. i'd tried working on the light and shading before i did the colours (as i did in bridesmaids), but when i added the colours they just wouldn't go together. i ended up creating a new lighting layer, trying to preserve the shading i had using multiply, and revising the colour scheme... but as i went on it just made the picture worse. it reminded me of drawing back in 2007-9 or so, when my pictures tended to end up dark, claggy, and heavy with poorly-applied shading.
so somehow i wasted half a day flailing (and failing) to get a simple picture done, rather than just quickly dashing off a sketch and posting it. i guess maybe i'll just chuck out all the colours and start again from the lineart when i have time. it's just so frustrating though, when you are aware that each brushstroke is just making it worse!

in other news, though, i did paint a halloween pic for this year (lookit me being organised for once!), but you'll have to wait for that one :3

so anyways whilst i'm nattering, did anyone see the site update news mentioning that we are going to get status updates for text/pictures? i'd really like to have something shorter than a journal entry in addition to the rather specific-use poll, so that ough to be cool.

gags and veils
last month i wanted to redraw a very old picture, so i doodled this. it was great fun trying to keep the characters as close to the original as possible, but try as i might, the picture wasn't coming out how i wanted, which is why i ended up scrapping the whole scene and starting again. that ended up with me completely repainting the lineart and became this:
Orientalisme 1 by Caregan 

but i thought i'd post the abandoned original anyway... so i guess you can see both the contrast between the 2006 and 2014 versions, and between this attempt and the (pretty much completely repainted) final version with the single girl :)
please bear in mind that this was not a finished picture though, so it is pretty rough around the edges! :blushes:

the 2006 version is here:
