~Calypso's Arts~

***LOTS OF ARTISTIC NUDITY***

Alright, so, I'm not super proud of anything in here, but it's interesting to look back on my past work and compare with how much I've improved!

Feel free to critique, I'm pretty hard to offend and not particularly attached to anything in here, so no worries, as long as you're not being mean, because then I will slap a ♣♣♣♣♣. Hope you enjoy either way!

Oh! Also, I apologize for the quality of a lot of this stuff; most of them I took pics of with my phone, soo might not be the greatest.

SUPER OLD STUFF

This was done with a mouse. Entirely. Never again.
Spoiler:  


Sucks that they cancelled this show
Spoiler:  


SUPER ANGSTY HIGHSCHOOL YEAH!
Spoiler:  


Never finished this ♣♣♣♣.
Spoiler:  



NEVER FINISHED THIS ♣♣♣♣ EITHER
Spoiler:  


Okay. Last super old one for now.
Spoiler:  


NOT SO OLD STUFF

I actually submitted this for the ZU art contest and won first place here back in 2009! Only art contest I've ever entered in, haha. Competition's too stiff now.
Spoiler:  


Pastels
Spoiler:  


This is actually on a rather large piece of hardboard. Used acryllic. Too mad I couldn't get a better pic, because I don't think this one does it justice. Ah well.
Spoiler:  


Bad pic, made the face look squished for some reason.
Spoiler:  


Last one for now.
Spoiler:

Monique, these are brilliant! I wasn't aware that you had an interest/talent for art! I love the variation for themes; from Ponyo to Lil Kim. Your art is rich and sassy.

Re: ~Calypso's Arts~

Calypso, you're, like, a hot mama at this. Knew for a while you've been studying art, but guessed right that hadn't started a thread or had shown posts with fan art or coursework.
Your pastel life drawings are really, really well-done. Lots of value and wonderful color in there, and the gestural marks really nail the drawings. I could never get into pastels myself, so these are outstanding for me.
I totes remember that Ponyo image that won that contest so I'm like really happy to know it was yours. More, Calypso! <3

Thanks Theresa! I used to do exclusively fanart, but I've kinda shifted to more realistic stuff for my classes--i.e. nudes. Or hip-hop style stuff. But I wanna get back into some fanart too!

Haha, thanks, Ignis! I will certainly try to make more art--I'm pretty slow at drawing and always push it to the side, but I need to make an effort to continue

Nudes are quite nice, aren't they? :p I hate pastels, and actually only one of those is, I think...the rest are conte, which is different and only comes in like four "colors".

Aww, thanks Nesi--you always know how to flatter someone! Thanks so much for the compliments--I certainly have room for improvement, though!

Re: ~Calypso's Arts~

BACK AGAIN

hopefully

Here's a quick rough sketch I did of myself looking into my webcam. I took a picture with my phone, so it washed out a lot of the value, but don't have a scanner so oh well

Re: ~Calypso's Arts~

Slightly irrelevant, but I really like those nekkid wimminz, because they look like real women and not some overly perfect plastic thing. They have real curves and nice skin texture. If that makes sense?

And I'm absolutely amazed by that last sketch. With a marker. Man. That's brilliant.

(and it's so cute that you make sketches of your husband <33)

Re: ~Calypso's Arts~

You were always good, from what I can tell looking back at your old art, but seeing this, you have gotten so much better, it's so vibrant and real, I love that style, I'd love to see more from you!

Re: ~Calypso's Arts~

This is an awesome gallery . I like the range of styles you've posted, and all are nicely done!

I've had a tablet for years, and sometimes it's still weird. I always feel like pieces I start by hand then take digital to use the tablet turn out better. A big part of ending with a good piece, in my experience, is to get the base drawn ASAP, so you don't nitpick and backtrack. And I can't draw nearly as fast with a tablet as I can with a pencil.

Re: ~Calypso's Arts~

So, here I am at it again. Finally getting used to my tablet! This is the first fanart piece I've done in a while: it's the Hero's Shade/OoT Link before his death!

Not 100% happy with it (I suck and hands/armor/weapons), but eh, I'm getting better!

Critiques are always welcome, I've got a tough skin!

Michiko Malandro from Michiko e Hatchin, one of the few animes I could bear to watch and actually enjoy (SnK is the other).

I need to improve my line work, but I don't usually work with outlines, so...eh. Background isn't really mine, btw. I was lazy.

Re: ~Calypso's Arts~

Hello friends!

I am back with a few new arts!



I still suck at backgrounds, so if anyone has constructive criticism I'd be really happy!



This is a Majora's Mask piece (obvs). I'm not that happy with how it turned out, but I got tired of working on it.

Re: ~Calypso's Arts~

I really like your colouring style, and I think the way you colour really suits your art style. I mean, yeah Link doesn't looks exactly how he does from the official artwork, but you've put your own spin on it, and the colouring really complements they way you draw, I'm not sure how to explain it, but it really works well together and makes the piece pop.

I really like these previous three updates, keep it up, I think you're a brilliant artist.
