Baka. by HaydenM
My second "Asuka in normal clothing" thing.
How do you like the hairstyle change? I think it's cute :aww:

Also noticing that it's especially difficult to imagine coloured versions of lineart when you're dealing with natural proportions.
You can't just go "Yeah ok, I know exactly how that will turn out" like you can with cel chading.

Paint Tool SAI 1.1
eww, jpeg compression artifacts. Thanks, dA.
Painting practice
'cause I wanna get better at realism!
Inspired by the styles of Serge Marshennikov and Aydemir Saidov using my own character. Achieved over about a week's time, which is quite something for me.

Iridescent Miku by HaydenM
Iridescent Miku
Originally intended to be (stylized) realism practice beginning late 2011. I really am a procrastination master.
I've picked this up and dropped it each year since then until I finally salvaged the face from the wreck it started as.
I certainly learned how to handle realism a lot better over this period, so I'm happy to have produced something respectable.

Only in the last few days did I think of the wings as a good way to wrap things up. It was hard thinking of a natural way to use space in the composition.
Nude version looks a lot better (The colorful skin decals! :love: ) shame I can't post that here.

Back to commissions after I get a loooong sleep.  :sleep:

Evangelion Rebuild 3.0: Asuka by HaydenM
Evangelion Rebuild 3.0: Asuka
Welp this is the first Eva artwork I've done, surprisingly. :iconasukaplz:

Kinda inspired by a PVC figure I have of Asuka and a combination of seperate artwork I was attempting to finish - this was the result.

Yeah... there's a visible milky way in the sky during the day, but heck. Light noise would drop a LOT after the 3rd Impact (It's still not an excuse, I know)
It feels like it's been ages since I got to paint water (technically LCL). It's great fun.

Original canvas: 3500x5000
Paint Tool SAI 1.1
Reia 2014 ver. by HaydenM
Reia 2014 ver.
Back in 2007 (ahh, a simpler time!) I made a second original character; Reia.
I decided I've done plenty of Aria stuff over that time, so I'd mix it up a little.

So here's the same character re-imagined with my painting ability 7 years on.

Originally the hair was a dark purple, but this red is just too gorgeous to not use. Same deal with eyes. Used to be red, but it doesn't go with the red hair - so its now blue :D
Painting hair is such a pain! it always looks terrible until the last moment.

So what can Reia do? She can perceive the states of higher dimensions, energy and matter. Something of an accompaniment of Aria (who alters matter/energy : 'omni-bending'?) 
To do both seems a bit OP.

My god I love frilly clothes. And yeah I got lazy with the hand details.

NSFW and clothing color variants can be found here on Tumblr:…

NOW ON TUMBLR! (I've already had it for a year)

I've been working full time as an IT technician for 2 and a bit years. I've moved out - flatting with friends! I have a lovely girlfriend. Life in general was improved a lot since I was studying.
3 Steps forward and 1 step back, though.  Was fired two weeks ago - currently unemployed, but still working on art. A few nice things are being worked on, and somehow my skill still develops!

I've also had some of my work professionally printed for myself - and the results were amazing. See some examples here!…

So. I'm seriously considering comission work. But as I have not ACTUALLY done it before and usually given art to people I know IRL, I'd have to start somewhere simple.
If you've followed me for some time, you'll know what my style is.

:love: What I love working on :love:

- Females :eyes:
- Fantasy
- Fan art
- Nude (artistic, or ecchi - it's usually pretty tame)
- Pinup (usually single figure)

As I usually paint for myself, I don't usually draw guys. Doesn't mean that I can't, though! And yes I can draw clothes too =P 

How is everyone? How many of my buddies still use their accounts? :cries:
Hiya! :wave:

You have great artworks and hearing that you consider commission makes it even more interesting. I keep an eye on you and if you have a price list, please send it or publish it here on DA. That would be great.

hey buddy.some people told me you draw a picture in 2009.09.29
it about "hatsune miku"

you know.i love's that moment i saw a angel

but.why not here
HaydenM Featured By Owner Sep 9, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
It was on here for a little bit. It was removed because Miku's age is under 18, so any nudity was against rules etc.
To this day I've never seen an official age for her, so it seems arbitrary to just say "naah, can't have that here" :/

You gotta come back too man!

I've deactivated my fb account if you havent noticed.. haha that'll most certainly help me in becoming more active on DA :D

I saw your Miku pic on another site and came here to Subscribe. I was also wondering if you did requests/commissions, and IF commissions, what your price range was. Anyway, keep up the great work!
