I made a fan art!
There was an attempt...
Hello guys, I hope everyone is having a great day. Today I want to share an artwork that I made last year.
Around this time of the year the Wednesday web series was released so there was a challenge going on online to draw her in our own style. I didn't want to do it because I'm not very good when it comes to drawing people's faces accurately. I never really put an effort to improve on that. To me, the idea of drawing is to have fun while doing it. Stressing myself to draw a person exactly as they look felt a bit tiresome most of the time. That's one of the reasons why I have trouble drawing faces to this day lol.
The current artwork is based on the above rough sketch. The one below was my second try after watching a tutorial on YouTube from Kooleen. Unfortunately, I was already on the painting stage when I saw this but I thought maybe In the future I might draw her again based on this new sketch below so I'm just showing it here.
About the variant below, I was just testing out the complimentary property of violet and yellow even though they are not found opposite on the colour wheel. It was fun to test it hehe. So I decided to post it anyway. What do you guys think of this variant? Is this better than the one with black background?
I know that some of my recent artworks have pretty faces but you guys have no idea how much time I spent on face anatomy to make it look pleasing XD. What I'm trying to say is that the current artwork doesn't look like Jenna Ortega so I don't see the point of naming the title of the blog as Wednesday art. However, the painting turned out to be good so I decided to share it plus I showed it to some of my friends on discord and @jijisaurart asked me why I'm not blogging about it. That's a good question because since the work is complete it's better to share it rather than keeping it inside my phone right?
So thank you Jiji for motivating me to post it hehe.

- Notebook and pencil
Thank you for your time and I'll be back with an another blog very soon 🐼.
Personally, I like the dark background better. But the purple and yellow combination is also interesting because it really pops! It's like if Wednesday was trapped in the early 90s.
Looking back at your older posts, you have come so far in your style progression. The amount of attention you give to the details, 😗🤌. Solid 🧡
Yeah I prefer the dark background too. I added the other one just for fun.
My priority to details was on hair and eyes before but now I try to add more detail on the face to make it look a bit 3D. I'm still exploring hehe. From my experience so far, white lights are so important on the face sometimes. It really improves the quality hehe.
Anyway, Thanks Ema 🤩.
Yeah! It's a fine line between overworking with too many details and having enough to make it really sing. Your portraits always look great, so you must be doing something right 🤠. Your style is definitively @solumviz.
See you on the next one, my friend... I'll post again too, one of these days soon 😆
Yeah about that. I rarely see your posts here. What happened? Are you busy these days? I'll probably be busy from next month I think.
Well, I was having all those frustrations with ecency crashing last year, and it really got me out of my routine. So, I've been regrouping and considering which direction I want to go with my art. I plan on restarting in February : )
Ah yes I totally understand. Technical issues are such a pain sometimes. Right now I'm having issue with Google pay app XD.
😮💨 technology is great, until it isn't.
Did you find a job? Or more exams? 🙂
Not yet😅. I got sick again last week. Doc found swelling around my backbone. So I'm treating that. She said my bones are supposed to me stronger but it's the opposite for me. Sigh! I withdrawn some money from here yesterday for the scans. I doubt I'll keep a job at this rate even If I get one.
There will be one ore two exams. They are delaying the results for some reason. It was supposed to come last month.
Oh man! That sounds concerning, but it's great that you have the means to seek the care you need from your earnings. I really hope the scan results are OK. Yeah, it seems like it's been a while since you had your exams. What an ordeal! 🏔
Yeah this year started badly for me. I was fine until December. I hope they publish the results atleast XD.
Yes. I mean, you spent all the time and energy to complete them. I hope so, too 🙈. Well, you still have 11 months left for 2023's improvement!
Yep, all we can do is to be hopeful ☺️. I'm gonna start studying from tomorrow, if not I'm gonna be in trouble again XD.
Lol. OK, good! Yeah, it's better to do what you can to be prepared 😊.
Wohoo! Finally your Wednesday is here! The purple and yellow background is a good contrast for Wed's black aura, hehe! I like the eyes tho. It is very Wednesday.
Yeah I'm obsessed with complimentary colours these days so I'm testing it with most of my artworks hehe.
I still don't think it looks like her eyes though 🤣 but hey if you like it then I'm happy haha.
i really like this one, well done!!
Thanks 🙏. Appreciate your nice comment 😃.
I love the way you said that "To me, the idea of drawing is to have fun while doing it. Stressing myself to draw a person exactly as they look felt a bit tiresome most of the time". Will keep that words in my mind. You have ur own art style and that's freaking cool~ :)))
