My Digital Artwork Adventures

*  *  *

So a couple of years ago, my dad got an ipad from his job as a teacher.  One of the programs he downloaded was called Paper, by 53, an art program that simulates very basic artistic tools such as pens, watercolor paints, and markers.  After a lot of practice, I finally managed to get a hang of the program, so I thought I'd share my work with you here!

Concept art for a novel of mine-

 A practice in the style of anime-

 Concept art for another character from yet another novel of mine-

This started out as a scribble, and then bit by bit became an actual drawing.  It wasn't meant to be anybody, but it ended up looking like a friend of mine.

 Fan art for the Kid Loki comics by Kieron Gillen.  This one depicts Loki and his best friend, Leah.  Their relationship was always a strange one, since he was openly smitten with her, and she was so stiff and unsocial that she barely knew what to do with him.

Another one of Kid Loki-

Fan art for Thranduil, King of Mirkwood-


  1. Nice work! I especially like the Kid Loki one. :)

  2. Awesomeness! From one artist to another! :D

  3. THESE ARE AWESOME! I have trouble with smooth lines in my digital art program; these are terrific! I love the Thranduil one and the person with the sunglasses!

    1. Thanks! :D I use a stylus when I draw on the program. It also has a nifty little feature that allows you to magnify a certain area while you're working on it. That helps a lot with straight lines and details.
