if you have more artists too add to the op reply to this and i will make sure to get them in the next one.
Dangit. I lost my WoW account in the great battle.net migration and Blizz were supremely unhelpful in recovering it, and that just totally soured it for me.
Also I really don't like the art style in WoW, especially if we're talking ERP and the like. The only models that kinda appeal to me are female dwarves, and nobody ever wants to do anything with those.
Anyone want to draw a lewd of Sagani the ranger?
I can't believe there isn't a single lewd image of Sagani from PoE on the internet.
First time posting here. When I first started lurking in these threads some anon posted a picture of Disgust from Inside Out with a great butt and it inspired me to do these sketches. I know they aren't super amazing.
Yes this one, I mean damn! I think I might try sketching some more of Disgust to practice my digital art skills. Anyone else interested?
Bandlebro finished the first three commissions sounds like she is gonna do more. Only 1 is short stack though
Stealing someone's request
Have these two do something
They're both in the upcoming Mario Sonic Olympic games so have some ideas there
You're attacked by a party of purple imps. Roll 1d20.
Everybody's gotta start somewhere so keep it up. I'm a big fan of Disgust too

Working on a web-comic about a space cowboy. (Rick Sterling: Space Cowboy(working title))
One of the planets he stumbles upon is a planet of thick shortstacks, one of which becomes a love interest. They naturaly exhale a chemical during heat that acts as an aphrodisiac.
Thought you guys might want to know.
He tries way to hard to copy Boogie and is generally unpleasant.
Meloetta doesn't have feet.
Depends on the mythos. They're usually represented as human sized females that embody the most surreal levels of beauty and physical perfection but canon like Rayman made them shortstack which of course I have no issue with :P
And I guess it comes down to artistic representation which is shorter.
So im not the best artist but hows this figure look.
im tryin to get into drawing again
Does this mean Boogie's new Midna is ready?
people tend to get huffy about it.
do anyone has any pics or texts from the pet gobling idea that /tg/ made some time ago?
Would threads be ruined if no one complained about or replied to diaper posts? If they were simply ignored, wouldn't it require them dumping exclusively off-topic diaper images to ruin the thread? Or am I wrong and it's physically impossible for you to take your screen off that image, zoomed in on her padded crotch?
Cuz if that's the case, you might want to take your computer to the doctor or vet or something.
Oh she's close.
Just have a few more kinks to work out of her rig and need to figure out how to apply Renderman color to S&H and then the real fun can begin.
Fuck forgot picture, for reference.
Oh come on, everyone who actually tries does that shit. Natural talent plays a huge part, and the only people that won't admit to that are the motherfuckers with tons of natural talent.
OH MY GOD
IT CAN'T COME SOON ENOUGH
First thing you need to do is drop the incompetence angle, it's not a competition and comparing art from two sources is apples and oranges.
Then you pick a thing you like and make a shit ton of porn of it.
Natural talent doesn't mean shit in the long run, it's the attitude that makes the difference.
monoprice tablets suck dick; all i see online is how do i get the drivers to work .
dont trust Chinese companies, who make cheap shit to compete with the more expensive stuff.
the lowest wacom goes for is 60 dollars
Oh my bad, I read that wrong. Here ya go, bud.
Some anon posted an archive back in the mists of time. I ain't about to start dumping it though, since I don't actually care for the majority of it's contents. You can see if these links still work yourself.
Hey boogie, or anyone for that matter. Do you have any advice for this situation?
i find that i'm struggling with drawing mainly because i take forever to actually draw something. like 3 - 4 times as long as i probably should. i know i'm just starting and that normal but it feels more like i'm making extra steps for myself that i don't even need to bother doing. Do i just need to get guud and draw it right the first time?
Not boogie, but occasional drawfag.
I would just take whatever time you need to draw, because sometimes it comes out right the first time and sometimes you redraw an arm fourteen times and it still looks like shit.
Writefag attempting to be drawfag here again.
I have been practicing for a bit.
finally got smooth lines. much less spaghetti.
still suck ass though ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
Will work on sucking less ass in the future.
Here's a copypaste of a bunch of resources someone I know that got gud fast put together.
First off some resources:
sycra's youtube channel
proko's youtube channel
vilppu's youtube channel
There's no reliable expert tier that's for free and frankly if you should only bother with those if you're already low-end professional tier
There's also: https://mega.co.nz/#F!WBAlWbAY!OHlVpL_6vsusinFzniu4_g
/ic/'s collection of e-books, all free. Yaar!
For beginners, I recommend Loomis and Hampton. There's also 'Drawing with the right side of your brain' but I haven't read that so I can't stand by it.
If you've skill under your belt, there's Scott Robertson and Burne Hogarth. If animation's your thing, there's the Animator's Survival Kit but keep in mind that animation would also require knowledge of drawing.
Then there's the fundamentals. Perspective, value, form and composition. Composition is very intuitive so a new artist may not have the feel for it. Perspective on the other hand is very technical and has little left to intuition so it's pretty good for new artists to concentrate on. Value and form go hand in hand. Value is basically how light or dark and object is and form is the 3d shape of the object. Basically, value and form is how the light reacts to shapes and surfaces. Color is a subset of value. Only move onto colors when you have your values in line. So if you're a new artist, here's the priority of importance with regards to the fundamentals from highest to lowest:
If you're serious about drawing, be prepared to feel like shit every time you draw especially if you're starting out. That will never go away.
Don't be afraid to ask for critique. Don't be an asswipe and throw a tantrum when you receive harsh critique. Yes, it hurts that's just how it is. Don't take it personally.
Sorry for the double post. Realized how huge I saved the image and went back to clean and re-save the image.
Remember to take everything I say with a grain of salt because I am a massive gay faggot.
The tl;dr is you aren't liking what's coming out because you don't have a very solid idea of what you actually /want/ to see. As in you've a basic idea ("Midna taking a huge cock") but when you try to really visualize it in your head it's a tad fuzzy yeah? Where's that right leg? What pose is the left arm in? Etc etc. That's just a mental thing that you'll grow out of in time, don't let it discourage you. If you want to speed up the process, get into the habit of really seeing things when you're out and about your regular day, not just looking at them. Consciously examine buildings, your peers, etc while you're on your way to class. Drawing is as much a mental exercise as it is a manual one, and you needn't be sitting at your pen to add new tricks to your toolbelt.
That or you're reluctant to let go. You draw a little bit, frown because it's not up to par with what you want and then restart - eight attempts later you have something workable. There's nothing wrong with shoddily chunking together one part just to get a base down, then coming back to it and more or less redrawing the whole thing later to better fit the whole. Art isn't a linear process. Don't be afraid to skip around.
That said, ignore time. Take as many attempts as you need. It's better to take an overly long path than a shorter one, even if it takes you ages at first. You shouldn't be concerned with the end product or how long it takes you (unless you are explicitly trying to practice speed and nothing else). It's about the journey, not the destination.
And keep a positive mindset. Tell yourself "THIS IS GREAT" not "this is shit", regardless of your level or how it looks. Greatness and shitiness are relative, and flaws aren't what separates them. You're the best you there is, don't forget it.
Chin up and always aim higher, you can't climb up when you're staring at the ground.
this works to an extent
i've been at this for a good 5 years and i have zero idea how to fucking practice. like, i've tried and i just DO NOT understand how to do the basics of the basics.
its fucking hurting me because i just want to get by it and its the biggest fucking wall for me right now. i can post things, but its always the same shit of "just practice more, read X book, practice"
i feel like my brain isn't getting something and i don't want to blame autism, fucking nonsense thing that it is.
i have zero fucking idea how people can just say their work is great when its absolute shit and you know it?
how can you be that deluded?
i can only be positive i've i'm doing GOOD
no one can be positive drawing BADLY
It's about balance. Tipping the scales either way will lead to either stagnation or bitterness.
There's a difference between being confident in yourself along with your faults and being one of those pissants with unwarranted self importance. The definition of good and bad wavers from person to person. Some pleb from DA might define "good" as anything with tits, I define "good" as a nice Rembrandt painting. They are both equally correct within the scope of the holder.
The point is that art is what you call it. Your picture might be trash compared to something like 'The Storm on the Sea of Galilee', but you'd be pulling apples and oranges to make that comparison. This doesn't mean you should be like one of those people who do "5 years of progress" pictures where the only difference is they have some minor anime influence and flaunt it like it's hot shit. This means you should keep a thick skin against comparative discouragement and push yourself /for yourself/, because the act of drawing is about /you/ and nobody else. Be your own leader. Make you own decisions. Even reading these posts you should be thinking "well I agree with this - I'll consider it, I don't agree with this though". YOU decide what to take away from any one pool of information.
There's no "delusion". You've misinterpreted my point. It's not a matter of being a smug prick ("man I'm the BEST ever, you should ALL worship me and my cartoon, pls reblog"), it's a matter of being at the helm and confident in yourself ("improving every day, I should try X, etc") and internalizing it.
"Not with that attitude you won't" summarizes pretty much everything about this. A bad artist who thinks negatively will always be bad. A good artist who thinks negatively will impede their progress. A good artist who thinks positively will shoot for the stars. A bad artist who thinks positively will become a good artist in time.
TLDR bitter negativity, like reading, is for faggots.
honestly i'm complete shit at drawing but i can see progress being made even if it's slower than a shortstack with no legs crossing through a river of peanut butter.
i'm not discouraged at all really.
i'm sure some people would be.
you don't get it
i can take criticism and shit
i just have zero fucking idea how to apply a redlined thing showing me WHAT i did wrong because i know that i did shit wrong and have zero idea on how to fix it
i don't compare myself to shit outside what i want to draw, that makes no sense.
i keep trying new shit every time, a different pose or angle, but i always feel like i should step back and try to learn before i even TRY to do something more advanced because it will just be a waste of time. yet, i always try even though i know how it's going to turn out.
i really don't see TOO much difference between some of that stuff. that midna don't look half bad.
Well i'll agree it's not much i see definite improvement.
sketchin a goblin. perspective looks shit though. I am kinda tired, maybe that's why
someone that is as tall as a dwarf,halfling,or a gnome.
I did a lot of graphic arts programs and they mix illustration and some life drawing stuff in with that. But i was never really that into drawing before so i know the theory. I just can't really apply it properly if that makes any sense.
so i have been studying anatomy and today i'm doing gestures trying to get form down.
as to what I've been doing the same things everyone tells you to do.
Basics, basics. basics.
the proko's guy on youtube is pretty good.
Got any advice on brush settings? I started drawing a bit ago and its progressing adequately but the thing that pisses me off the most is that I can't seem to get a pen setting that looks even half decent compared to my pencil sketches. They look so jaggy and ugly in comparison.
I figure it might help if I work at a higher resolution and canvas size but anything bigger than 800x800 is kinda intimidating to me.
>creating new artists
Truly the best fetish.
I'm looking for some Shortstack illustrations on Deviantart about a group of women (including a black one whose eyes were not visible) who wore nothing but neckerchiefs and berets
Interesting, all the auburn porn convinced me otherwise and it was usually a surefire way to tell dyed from natural and I think Melly (I think that was her name) is natural seeing the colours on the coloured pages and freckles. Still, would be nice to have some variety to be able to tell which is which once things get messy.
There's a special place in hell for you
Best way to tell is by looking at a persons' eyebrows. They may dye their hair, but rarely are brows dyed, and ones pubic hair is the same color as their brows.
Only posting this cause I can't get enough of that glorious hairy cunt. More, less commonly posted stuff coming.
All dwarfs have beards. Just not all of 'em are on their faces.
Save this one, cause I don't know how many times I've seen people asking for it and I couldn't find it.
Hey, you fucking chibi chasers.
I'm working on a project.
It's a tabletop game.
That we plan to take to Kickstarter.
I'm our artist, so I'll be doing all the art assets. Help me sneak in some shortstacks.
It's a fantasy game, and we're wanting to use a bunch of common fantasy tropes and archetypes in a sort of tongue-in-cheek, over-the-top sort of way.
I've gotten the others to agree that goblins are reasonable to use as characters the players will have available, so I've got them, gnomes, and dwarves to work with...possibly others.
Basically, just feed me ideas for characters, and how I might work them in without the fetish-y bits being too overt.
First thing is first, you need an over the top evil wizard named Zar. Then you need a sexy, but seriously female protagonist named Clitorus Erectus. Give her skimpy clothers and make her good with a sword or something. Then you need a big bad female antagonist who is in very skimpy, dominatrix attire, and give her a big executor's axe, and call her The Sexecutioner.
A bit closer to Munchkin than DnD.
Players manage groups of characters, which will be on two-sided cards, with a basic and leveled form for each.
Characters are all unique, named characters, so there won't be any generics in the mix.
Dwarf, halfling or goblin tavern maids, so you've got an excuse for low cut tops, tons of cleavage and a short skirt. Greedy goblin or dwarf who manages to hide objects really well no matter what she's equipped with, implication being that she hides it in... places?
the high amount and quality of rendering in this artwork is stunning, yet it's also bloody hilarious for the subject matter. Props to the artist. Bet the right patron would hve no probs fapping to this. Or at least staring at it for hours.
bottom line mate?
Don't be doscouraged just because you can't really see progress. We all have our own pace and complex impediments slowing down the progress we could possibly make. You just need to sit down and clear your mind. Focus on one thing at a time. Really soak in the information. Draw HUNDREDS of gesture drawings, and do HUNDREDS of referenced drawings, all off of your favorite vids from your favorite porn site (just as a starter). Focus on the stuff you find most interesting or struggle with. Or start with the stuff you already know kinda well but want to touch up on.
Either way, get out of this 'I can't do this!' mentality. Don't set yourself up for failure by imagining yourself 'failing.' And if you seem to repeatedly 'fail' in a particular way over and over, maybe it's just something that makes your style stand out and is something you should embrace.
So please chill now, ok?
