Sketching process of this thing.

General drawing video tag


This sketch took much more time and effort than it usually would for me, since my head was literally killing me today. I wanted to relax by drawing, but headache was so distracting, half of the things I’ve done in this video are simply unnecessary decisions made by tormented brain, ughhh, but I hope the video is still ok.

Now, why I do the thing:
-Starting sketch from a very tiny stick figure (and enlarging it later) is very helpfull way to grasp the basic composition and anathomy easily. It’s also helpfull, if I’m not entirely sure about the pose or simply want to brainstorm a little with the possibilities- it’s much faster to draw a bunch of different stick figures, copy/paste them, modify them partialy or entirely and then pick a favourite one and turn it into finished image or finish all one by one, rather than drawing a detailed sketch right off the bat while the ideas are stuck impatiently in the imaginary queue :V

-I sketch with light colours, because it helps me not get distracted. Some people don’t mind, but for some handling the highly contrasting black/white mess can be confusing, even kind of brainwashing. Sometimes I fill canvas with very light beige, grey or paper texture to soften the contrast even more. I don’t know, from time to time I can simply forget what I wanted to draw from staring at dazzling white.

A sketch from today. It’s a personal work, but more or less done in my current sketching method with which I do concepts for Flat Plastic Miniatures. I wanted to show how I create these, so I screencaptured the process. The recording is currently rendering, and it should be ready in 1,5h (+ ca 1h for YT upload). 
Btw. she must look funny from behind.

Have some personal work for a change. It’s about 2 months old I believe? The pen I’ve done it with was so comfy to draw with, but it broke very fast, because it was made of some of the worst quality materials I’ve seen in my life. It’s ballpoint just *pop*, fell out. Still, things you can find in 1$ stores can suprise a lot, and I like to buy art equipment there.
Interesting how this is the second time my tool broke while drawing that centrain hug pose. Are back hugs cursed for me? 8V

Sketching process for druid characters.

I don’t usually sketch one character at a time, then proceed to drawing a token. I’m mostly brainstorming and spontanously sketching as much ideas as I have in mind, then after some discussion and fixes pick one, and start drawing. I also don’t have one consistent way of sketching- it changes a lot! Right now I’m in my linear-orange phase as you can see from my recent posts - and I want to record at least few sketches done in this method- but for now I hope you will enjoy these older, more painterly concepts :)

Video recording of the FPM Elf King from my previous post, as promised.

From time to time you propably can catch a glimpse of drawing with FPM Elf Queen (I used her color palette for the king). Unfortunately my recording files with her are broken, so I can’t do a timelapse (I blame the graphic card driver that decided to spontanously stop working for whatever reason during screencapturing). But at least the king’s files were ok :O Hope you enjoy! If you have some questions about anything in this video or anything else, my ask is open :)

Btw. lol, everything seems drawn so effortlessly after speeding-up the video, but it’s a lie! XD

Elf nobility from The Grove Pack for Flat Plastic Miniatures campaign.

Second row characters can be either nobles or spell casters. I’m preparing time-lapse video with drawing process of one of these characters, but it’s still ca. 6 hours before the rendering ends :S

Some of my personal fav tokens I made for Arcknights Flat Plastic Miniatures project- https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1534484023/flat-plastic-miniatures 

We’re planning to make sets of playable 2D characters for rpg tabletop games in form of durable and easy to maintain plastic flat minis. And I happen to be their main artist :) We have a lot of our own ideas for characters and sets, but we also have limited slots open for User Requests, so people can make their own character become a part of official pack.

I hope you will like this idea, and if you do, please check out the link above and tell your friends about it- we will greatly appreciate any support :D

All miniatures have their respective front and back art, but for now I will be publishing only fronts here (mostly for economic purposes so I can show more characters per image). There will be also sketches, and more ;)

So it may seem I have dissapeared from the internet and the reason for this is quite easy to point out. It partially involved some heavy family related drama and me trying to get out of it, once I’ve realised I don’t really -can- fix it on my own, but instead I’m just drowning myself deeper and deeper in dysfunctional mess. The other reason was job on which depends my living, but on the other hand this is rather pleasant reason. I became a part of something really cool, and not only it makes me hopefull about me going back on track with my life, but it’s something very inspiring on it’s own. This is my nr 1 priority right now, but once I manage to fix the mess I’m in, I’m planning to fullfill all the promises I made a long time ago- I think I’m doing pretty ok with stabilising my schelude right now, so if I had any specific thing promised to some of you, please send a priv message, so we can discuss when and what. I didn’t mean to make you feel forgotten because of my life turmoils, so don’t hesitate- I’d love to be on the roll again. And for now, let me introduce you to the good part of things that keep me busy:

We’re planning on making a bunch of affordable characters for tabletop games. We have a ton of ideas on our own, but we also have limited slots open for User Requests, so people can make their own character become a part of official pack. This is great opportunity to make a sets of classic characters, but also introduce something different.

I’ve got permission to post my works on tumblr, but I wanted to explain some things here before doing that.
I’ll start posting them under #fpmarcknight tag soon, so hopefully this place becomes livelier, and, well, hope you will like it :)

Kupala, the summer solstice feast, is one of few nights when magic can interfere with reality.

When you are a child, they tell you don’t go into the forest alone, especially on the night like kupala, it never ends well. And yet, when you wander through the trees lost and scared, a forest girl shows up and helps you out. You hear stories, how forest folk is only bad news, but you can’t stay away from her and  see her every year as she becomes your best friends and first love.

Kupała (or Kupala in English) is a fantasy story taking place during Summer Solstice over the span of few years, deriving from Slavic mythology and folk tales. In short- fantasy (peppered with romance) with Slavs. I bet you haven’t read anything like that yet! For more info, please check my tag [Kupała].

Honest warning: this is intended for mature readers. It may look like fairy tale, but it isn’t, believe me. I’d love to go into specifics, but anything I say at this point will ruin the plot, so I trust readers to be mature in whatever capacity they deem relevant when purchasing this comics. 

Have I caught your attention and you want to purchase a comic? Great! Because we are opening pre-orders for the book!

Kupała consists of 24 pages of black and white comics + cover in colour, physical copy is the size of American floppy, approx. 16x26 cm. 

These are your options: 

  • Fun, fast and easy digital through [gumroad].
    In preorder only 0.99$ (or more if you feel generous), no DMR or licensing, .pdf and .cbr included. The file will be sent on July, 22nd, on it’s intended release date, closing digital pre-orders. 
    After that the book will cost 2$+, so don’t hesitate and order now!

  • Longer, but hopefully worth your time and money. Physical copy of the book can be purchased through [storenvy.com]. If bought before July, 13th it’ll cost only 4.5$+shipping (instead of regular 5.5$) and come with some thank-you-for-pre-ordering extras. For more details, please check the storenvy listing! Physical copies will be shipped at the latest on 22nd, but we will try our best to get them out as early as possible.

  • If by any chance, you work at or own a comic book shop selling indie/self-published books, please, contact me directly here or at [gazdownaATgmail.com], so we could work out a deal that’ll suit us all nicely!

  • If you bought a copy at a con, please, contact me and I will sent you corrected pdf. There were some mistakes I feel embarrassed by and I’d rather you didn’t remember us by them :) I will ask a question to make sure, though!

  • Jeśli jesteście z Polski i chcecie zapłacić przelewem, zapraszam do uzupełnienia [tego formularza]. 

But wait, there’s more! (like free comics :D)

If, for any reason, you aren’t able to buy a book, don’t worry! Reblog and spread the word and for every, let’s say, for every 50 physical copies ordered we will give away 1 book and for every 25 digital orders, we’ll give away 1 digital copy (which means we start with 2 to give away!), we will randomly pick people who reblogged, liked or commented on this post! We’ll pick the winners of the raffle on July, 22nd, day of the release. 

Thank you for your support!
[Kaśka] & [kth]

1, 2, 3, 11! :P

I have shitty camera 8D, but here we go!

1: Take a picture of your workspace.

If I wouldn’t work mainly digitaly for the last few months, all these pens and markers in the back would be scattered everywhere.

2: Show your pencil case and what’s inside.

Fav supplies that I have to have near me, even if I don’t touch traditionals ‘3’. From left: retractable blade, pink marker, 4 various mechanical pencil fillings (black, red, blue), eraser, kneaded eraser, stick eraser, cheap, no-brand, but awesome water-brush with black ink in it, pen with G-nib, cheap, but also awesome fountain pen, Sakura micron, Unipen, Artline and Faber-Castell fine-liners, regular ball-pen, pencil, 4 mechanical pencils 0,35-0,7mm and 4 Graph’it Warm Grey markers (which are also epic). Also scissors, & empty fountain pen ink-container ‘//7//’.

3: Show a thing you last drew, no matter how small or a “doodle” it is.

My newest, fresh and steamy doodly dodles :’D These are brush-tests: I have hundreds and hundreds of unused brushes loaded into Photoshop, and lately I’m checking all of them, deteling some, and keeping those that I like.

11. Draw a pic of yourself like how you look just now.

…After caving next to my computer and working for 5 months straight, I really should start exercising, because I’m starting to have consistency of a pudding XD

Artist asks GO!

  • 5: Who/what inspires you?
  • 6: Draw a same pic with your dominant and non-dominant hand.
  • 7: Do you have any OCs?
  • 8: Do you listen to music when you draw? Favorites?
  • 9: Favorite thing to draw?
  • 10: Least favorite thing to draw?
  • 11: Draw a pic of yourself like how you look just now.

, #There might be some delays with me answering them though #but it looks fun :D

A picture where I 1) used the lining method I usually used to draw my older drawings with, but digitally, instead of using pencils, and 2) decided to go with very limited colour-palette, overall clean style, and 3) mostly played around…Now I should go back to drawing things I’m supposed to.

Also fullsize.
