here, take some recent art of mine. *shoves sketchbook at you*

Hello hello HELLOOOOOO! Hope you’re doing well, fellow elves, demigods, witches, wizards, and all! ๐ŸŒป
It is I, the legend, the one and only: RAYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYNA! And, I feel like blogging. Whoa. In fact, as you can see, I’m being very enthusiastic about it.
I haven’t had that feeling in a while.
So. Am I back? Maybe. Who knows? Certainly not me, and if I don’t know, who else would?

But before I decide if I’m coming back properly or not, enjoy some of my recent art!
It’s been a long while since I last shared my artwork, which I did in JULY (check it out here if you haven’t!) ..well, okay, it hasn’t been very long. But I do think I’ve improved. And besides, one can make a lot of art during three months. (now, whether it’s a whole lot of good art or not.. well that’s another thing we won’t talk about.)

I really don’t feel like taking so many pictures. So I’ll just show some of my recent favourites! don’t we just love laziness?

Some watercolour drawings of my OC, Julia Alvin! And you can see Andy (her cousin and best friend) popping in there too. I really love this pageee. It took a while, but the watercolour looks really cool.
I really need to do a post on Julia.
Someone remind me please.

ahhhh, this one. I usually do more stylized drawings, so this is a change. The legs are.. particularly interesting, let’s say.
But I really like the rest of it! Especially the eyes.. or I should probably say eye.

You can see my process leading up to this character’s final design here!
I named her Cassandra (please, call her Cassie), and she’s now probably going to be in Julia’s world because I like her design.
I know close to nothing about her, though, apart from the fact that she loves cats (she’s even become really close to that black stray cat in the drawing), and she plays the ukulele (like me!). the ukulele drawing is.. weird. But it’s.. passable, so we’ll accept it. And besides, we all need a lil’ more weird in our lives, don’t we?
(yes, I am indeed quoting Fitz Vacker.)

The one on the left is cool.. but I didn’t finish the others. I planned to make it a watercolour page, like the one with all the Julia drawings, but I got lazyyyyy.
Perhaps someday it’ll be finished.
Oh and, I liked the girl’s design so much I decided she’s also part of Julia’s world now! Her name’s Arietta, and she loves ice skating. โ›ธ

Also, dare I say it~ I think I’m slowly improving at drawing hands! The ones on the right don’t look great.. but the fully-coloured one’s hands don’t look bad!

Can you make out who this is?
I hope so.
It’s Taylor Swift!
I’m not the happiest with how it looks, but it’s not bad….. tell me in the comments if it looks like Taylor~ and be honest. ๐Ÿง

AWOJRIOEWJIREJGI I love this!!! I mean.. I hate praising myself. I do it a lot as a joke.. but I hate actually praising myself.
but I’m proud of this one. : D (every single smiling emoji looks sarcastic to me now- WHAT HAVE YOU GUYS DONE ๐Ÿ˜ญ)

Finally, there’s this! I’m still working on it, as you can see, but I do these posts so rarely that I just thought I’d show it. I love how those colours look paired with the black.
I should really finish this.
Poor dragon’s been waiting for three whole days to get the rest of her colour. ๐Ÿ˜”

I’m working on a new divider!

And that’s my recent favourites! Lemme know which one’s your favourite! mine’s got to be the eye.. and the dragon, even if it isn’t complete yet. Me and a friend named her Sterlingia.. interesting name, I know. We’re weirdos.
But aren’t we all?
*eh-hem.* Anyway. I hope you enjoyed! I mean to do an art tips post sometime soon, if I can think of enough.

p.s here’s a photo of me working on this post.

my face shape looks weird here~

  1. *happily takes sketchbook from you* I love looking at people’s drawings. I used to youtube sketchbook tours all the time !! I loved your art, especially the use of watercolour. I am trying to use watercolour in my travel scrapbook thingy but I’m not the best at it yet so I’ve kinda avoided it and now the scrapbook is very colourless ๐Ÿ™ˆ I love the eye drawing so much– all the colour shading !! WOW !! ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜
