ShikiOwl's Profile Picture
Shiki L Rintaro
Artist | Hobbyist | Varied
United States
I enjoy drawing with any available resources, but mostly that is on paper and digitally. I also attempt to write stories time after time (WARNING: due to English being my second language, there may be a lot of mistakes in text and dialogues will look weird to most of the English-speaking people).

For traditional drawings I prefer regular pencil, yet, most of the times am using a mechanical one because sharpener is not always nearby.
For digital drawing I mostly use Adobe Photoshop CC, PaintTool SAI, and Manga Studio 5 Ex on my Surface Pro 3 tablet. I love my tablet<3

I believe that practice makes it perfect and therefore I will never surrender!

My current goals are:
- learn how to draw and paint in Lily's style
- practice with shading
- practice more with drawing hands
- learn body proportions
- practice drawing body in different positions
- get a hang of semirealistic painting

I wish:
- to learn how to keep an image in mind for a longer time while I draw it
- to feel the paper and pencil to be able to draw with my eyes closed

Just for general information:
- Here are all of the signatures that I have ever used for my art, just so you won't get confused why there is a different signature on some old artworks that I post: Dina, Alec, Chir, ChirurguS, ShikiOwl (current), 志輝 (current)


Journal History


Who's Next?
So after I did a fanart with Sokka I could not resist to do another one, but this time with Toph.
I admire her because she on her own learned how to use earthbending as an extension of her senses to compensate for blindness and also discovered metalbending. Feels like her abilities have no limits! She is a truly amazing character.) 
Now when I am done with endless studying I can finally come back to doing some art, which would be more than simple sketches haha 
Even though I've been doodling digitally a few different works for some time, somehow I felt like painting Sokka. I am sure many of you know him if you saw Avatar: The Last Airbender.) It is actually one of my favorite shows*0*
I've always liked Sokka and think that he is one of the best characters in the show! So always looked forward seeing scenes with him because they are very humorous xD I hope you will enjoy this fanart with him.)
P.S. Later I might add some colors to it.)) 
Happy New 2017 Year, everyone! \m/
So I finally was able to sit down and draw something with more details. Pretty happy with what came out. I really need more practice with hands though haha

x) I think about the thought that you should think about thinking to paint away the deviantID-picture of yours - not that people think you were a monster inside. xD :blackrose:
Just meant pure honest. x) And I even would think about stopping heartless sarcasm. x)
