holden's art

+ + +


holden doodles during class DON'T TELL THE TEACHER

(forgive me)

like, when i'm not doing classwork or scratching poetry in the margins of old assignments*

this thread is kind of a *build up* or whatever for the hourly-comic buzz on Feb 1st; most of the doodles i'm posting right now are super old though



this is Julius, a character from a story i wrote; i drew this before i did the story though; so, 2010?; but it was colored last year; so



this is super old; to be found nestled in one of my earlier poetry books; colored last year



this is me as a... muppet? idunnoman



no one understands my dark and tortured soul
(somewhat related: it rained today; it was very light and pleasant)



this is a girl with a book
i call her Girl With A Book



Self Portrait, #4



theresa was giving me pointers on things ages ago and this is a result of some of those



i didn't draw this but i'm going through my photobucket and ♥♥♥♥, it's the dark lord voldemort with justin bieber's hair! i *had* to post it, guys! (note: i did make this though, putting the hair on voldy)



i dunno what this is exactly but HE HAS GREEN HAIR WTF



we were talking about the American Civil War in my AP US History class (boooore) and i was just, like, super inspired by their sideburns, honest



this is Space Kid, Defender of Space



again, just going through my photobucket and i found this old SotW entry and i had to pause for a moment and admire it


okay, i guess that's all for today, folks




*math class last year was really productive--NOT

Re: holden's art

These are pretty charming.

Some of them sort of give me a nostalgic feeling, and yeah I know that doesn't make much sense but whatever.
Kinda reminds me of the style my brother used to draw in a lot, I guess.

Re: holden's art

Your art style is really amazing! If it's okay to ask, what program did you use to color your sketches? :3

Re: holden's art

Your drawing style is, for lack of a better word, absolutely adorable. I love the simplified cartoon feel.

I use GIMP. A lot of the time, I color in things and then throw a texture on top.

Re: holden's art

sometimes i make mixes


I made this a few months before the end of last year. Then I went through and finished it today, because that's how I make mixes a lot of the time. I kind of put it together, base it around a song or two, and then let it develop.

This one in particular is based on a central thematic, so that none of the songs are necessarily in the same style or anything.

The cover I just kind of threw together from little scribbles I had, and then I dotted the whole thing with +'s and -'s. So.



This started out as me trying to achieve a certain, frantic, ROCK AND ROLL, in your face kind of thing. But then I kind of stepped back and threw in some songs to slow it down at some points, and make it all a little more well-rounded.

I wanted the cover to be really ironic, so the font is comic-sans and the title is silly. I was originally going to use Roman numerals for the track listing, but then I thought "nah". I threw the art on after planning out everything else. It's just kind of random and yeah. The sun-thingy is a lot older than the rest of the doodles though.

Re: holden's art

I forgot these ones:



Am I a man or a muppet? Basically, if you want to know when I've drawn myself, look for brown hair, green eyes, and a grey shirt.



He's dancing.



This is recent. It was one of the scraps from whatever it is that I made my mixtape covers from. He is the sheriff of Poncho Town.

Edit: Also, from now on, when I import these into GIMP I'm gonna make them bigger because lol look at that tiny poncho.

Re: holden's art

Image-manip + digital art (from over the past year or so):









Eddplant chose not to have any artwork for his EP, Picture Unrelated, and encouraged fans to make up their own. This is the one I use. He actually featured it (among many others) on his tumblr, which was kind of cool.

Re: holden's art

I really like the first image; the color choices are nice (warm and cool), and the overall effect of the light is really neat.

:]

Re: holden's art

I like the idea of having a book with both writing and drawings/doodles in it; but I can't seem to bring myself to do much other than short notes in my sketchbook. Maybe if I start writing a story (like for a comic), I'll be more inclined to do it.

Re: holden's art

90% of the pages are just writing (exclusively poetry)
but sometimes i have little doodles to fill the space (because sometimes i'll only have three or four lines on a page)
but only sometimes

Re: holden's art

I absolutely love the colors of the flowers (tulips) on the bottom photo. Makes me want to paint.
