I’ve pretty busy over the past couple of weeks and pretty bored. I’ ve got nothing, other than this video. In my spare time, I would play some games to get by the day. I, however, came across this game called Endless Lake. The concept is like Flappy Bird and the designs are like Monument Valley. I love the design and the color schemes. The game was challenging at first, but it’s really easy.
Here is a gif my gameplay.
BTW, I didn’t notice this before but there is an online version as well.
For so long I had been wanting to have a darker skin tone character, and now I finally have one. From since I’ve started to draw on 2011, I have created 5 Anime O.CS, 9 My little pony: FIM O.Cs and 2 Sonic O.C (I gave up with sonic O.C XP). Recently I’ve been working on my anime characters since most of then are not fully developed. I also wanted to explore and see how I can develop the characters with different skin tones.
One of my characters, Mono, is supposed to be American-Asian inspired anime character. I made her even before I drew manga very well.

I really wanted to try making an African-American character and develop a story behind this character. But, whenever I try, the character seem to be more like my persona’s personally than it’s orginal self. So after school went on break and I had free time, I started to think about this character and what interesting things she will be doing. And I came up with the idea.
At the time, I had the inspiration of flowers and I was playing Style Savvy (or Girls Mode) Fashion Forward demo. By then, it hit me. I blew myself out of art block and into creativty. My new O.C its named Lillan.I believe that she would be 17-19 year old (need to debate on that). She loves plant and nature. She also is a plant whisperer. She own a little flower cart as her bussiness in New York. However, She dreams to go away from New York and live in the meadows along with some animals. With the wind in her hair and the sounds of creeks everywhere, She feel like she part of nature.
I was planning on having companions with her but I stil need to develop that part as well as the other anime O.Cs.
One day ago, I was very bored scrolling through Google play store when I came across this app. The app, Prisma, can actually turn your pictures into art work. There are multiple art filters you can use to make your picture a creative and neat painting.
I wanted to try one of my photos.
This was the first picture I tried to experiment. (Pic from Miitomo)
After having a hard-working school semester, I decided to treat myself. I brought myself some Prismacolor markers from Marker Supply.com and a Yoobi multi-color pen from Target. I was so happy that I got 6 markers for 3.54 each. (of course buying the set is a lot cheaper, but lasy me I wanted it now). Also after breaking many cheap multi- color pens, I found something that can last more than 3 months. But enough of my bragging about my stuff, let go to the art.
Overall, I really like the prismacolor markers. They definitely show great quality in color (It look a lot better in person). The issue is that I’m use to coloring things neatly and in order. So when I started to draw, I kinda had a struggle on filling the white marks of the face and it ended up looking like she had freckles on her face. Just a warning, these markers are very dangerous when not used in a area where wind is blowing. I nearly pass out after doing my first drawing because, I was constantly sniffing the fumes.Even with the other drawing I had to put a face mask on XD.
Another drawing. I colored the skin with the Eggshell and Blondwood color and the outlines was from the multi colored pen.
Just in case if you were wondering what colors I got, Here the list
Blush pink light- PB-9
Light Aqua- PB-46
Sienna Brown- PB-65
Egg shell- PB-72
Blondwood – PB 96 was what I got for free at an art camp.
