Post your OC, draw lewds of other OCs, talk about OCs, etc.
Previous thread: >>365333
>SUPER CEREAL ORIGINAL THREAD GUIDELINES
>1.) If you're re-posting an OC from a previous thread, you MUST ( I'LL GIVE YOU A COOKIE IF YOU DO ) draw a new picture of them. If you aren't an artist then define an aspect of the character you haven't before, design a new outfit for them, or develop their past a bit more if there are some things left to be desired.
>2.) Never use the same OP image twice
The point of these threads is to have fun, draw some porn, get porn drawn, talk about drawing, have fun, inspire creativity, and all that kind of thing.
Starting a new thread? Better make a Donut Steel picture to go with it, no repeats up in here. Also, wait for the thread to hit page 10 or the mods will wreck our shit.
Booru:http://acoc.booru.org/ (Needs updaters and more content)
#Doughnut_Steel (talk shit and post pics/characters not otherwise allowed: loli, shota, furry, etc.)
>Show us your OCs O-Face
>Draw your oc as a pokemon trainer. Which OCmon do they choose as their starter?
>Hard mode: Whenever you post you must use this OCs unless you are delivering a request. Try to make a new image of the OC with expressions reflecting what you are trying to convey with each post.
this is my wacky waifu, krazy karen!!!!
You very welcome! Have fun kids~ play nice
Ok, someone in the last thread convinced me to create a Frankenstein girl oc, so i came up with her. I thought it would be a waste to just forget about her, so i decided to use her for this thread.
Her name is Ashley and she's kind of a scaredy cat, she gets spooked pretty easily and if that happens she can lose some of her limbs when she gets frightened. Ironically she's a big fan of good horror movies, mostly because she looks in admiration to all the characters that face their fears to help other people (her name is a reference to that too).
Every part of her body is detachable and she can still move them at will. Also she gets crazy horny if you start caressing the screws on her neck.
Added some details on the pic.
No but it's connected to her nervous system, that's why the turn on.
I'LL LET YOU GUYS DECIDE ON THAT. AHAHAH.
Actually not sawn shut, it's just details on her lips. You know, with being dead and all. Also big butt and normal legs under the dress. It would be pointless to create an unfuckable character for this thread.
Then yes. the answer is yes. theyre also shaved into the shape of a lightning bolt. this is canon now.
Shes really fucking cute dude, can my zombie girl be her go to cosmetics.. person?
I dont know what you'd call it but in dead town I figure being dead means you have a different level of "upkeep" to not look like a disgusting rotting corpse. embalming and stuff. Thats what her job is.
Also I think I might call her Anna.
maybe Anna Maul.
since she likes "ani mal"s, and she was mauled to death.
She comes in for some touching up, some stitches resewn and some girl gossip. Anna wondering why Ashley gets so squirmy when she tightens her bolts.
>>Show us your OCs O-Face
Luckily such a thing has already been drawn better than I could ever possibly do!
Putty I'm on mobile. Otherwise I'd be drawfagging (damn, autocorrect tried to make that draw gagging. I just KNOW that's a fetish somewhere). Perhaps I'll be able to doodle shit later
Hey thread! You haven't been sinning, have you?
Whoops, guess who drew them fucking. Glad that got cleared up before further mistakes could be made.
Wonder what the game was going to be like.
Are you the guy who did Lydia? I don't think your characters are uninteresting, we just don't have that much information on them yet. Or maybe we do and I missed it. Fuck. You wanna help us out and give us some basic info? Likes/dislikes, etc.?
Been working on something but it's kinda late. Maybe I'll get to it tomorrow morning.
Self insert OC for Warhammer 40k named Alise.
I miss making shitty games so much. and these threads only made me nostalgic of those days I used to dump hours into it.
Growing up blows!
Mfw I see this and then wonder if they are going in her or going out of her, realize I spent 8 minutes pondering this.
So I was doodling yesterday and cam eup with this cyborg girl. Still don't have a good story on her.
Her name is Maya, she helps out a engineer dude to build giant robots, he made her arms and legs but they still need improvement.
She lost her limbs in a bombimg.
I updated the booru. I'm trying to put all the pictures everyone did in the last thread and as soon as i'm done with that i will start with this one.
Just one thing guys:
GIVE THE NAME OF THE OC WHEN YOU POST IT.
Like, in the filename, the description, just DO ET.
This will make my job easier.
Denko, you are truly a god among men.
Well done, i'll keep your words in mind when posting stuff. (y)
>Show us your OCs O-Face
Doing god's work, eh?
Thanks, also just give the name of the OC in that picture too, just to be sure (i'm going through the last thread but i might miss stuff).
Thanks, i actually didn't have a tag for him. Also, i need a name for your witch cat oc too.
Mmmmh dat Steecky.
The merciful gods heard your prayers and i started to work as their tool. May the good blood guide your way.
[INSERT DARK KNIGHT JOKE HERE]
I thought this would be a fun exercise.
We have a brave man here today. (pic related) (or, the amazing shrinking hat)
One question about the booru though, are there certain limitations/expectations to images posted there or is it just a free-for-all?
fuck me where's my name
also I'm planning to do another "draw the squad" image sometime soon
so far I think I'll include
>mariana (just for the fuck of it)
>yabbi (compensating for the lack of presence from last image)
which makes three more slots available
(no returners, even delta isn't allowed on this)
>Show us your OC's O-face.
Well that was easy. And slightly unnerving.
I usually go hog wild posting stuff, so I guess there isn't much of an expectation.
was wondering if someone would be so kind as to re-draw my OC Abigail.
including is a picture of her Clothed and a picture of her getting fucked that is colored for a reference of her color scheme is
not exactly o-face, but lewd face most definitely
Tails are actually extended versions of the spinal column, so they stick out from the lower back, not the butt.
But then buttplug tails are a thing. And a cool thing at that.
Hi. Let's play that game again. It goes like this.
Describe the gist of someone else's OC (not your own) in one sentence and see if other people can guess who it is. Try not to use physical appearance.
Or if you think the OC you are thinking of is too obvious, provide an obscure fact about them. Preferably something people wouldn't easily guess or wouldn't expect of said OC.
from left to right
>sabrina (tagged as tommy/sabrina_masterson)
it's all done
damn it, I thought that would've been hard
Another 'un for the bucket. Obscure details here we go!
She is rumored to have very pretty legs, but no one knows if it's true or not because she's prude and won't take her clothing off.
Couldn't post this on the last thread, the doctor challenge.
>Mariana feels ill, goes to the doctor.
>Amelia likes to prank people in hospitals
>says Mariana got Aids from Arrowchan
>Mariana is not buying it
Hey i was Wondering if someone be willing to make one of my Alien Races?
This Race is Female Only for the Moment as they where created by another alien race for Entertainment and Amusement. Using Tiger DNA, and Evolved it down the Path humans went down as well as mixing in bits of their own they created a race of Bimbotized Humans with Purple eyes. Tiger Ears, Tiger Tail, and Stripes all over the Body.
Let me be clear. THERE IS NO FUR!, the Only Hair on them is on their Head, Pubic hair, Ears and Tail.
Got a new scan of some old stuff.
Her tits are huge in this pic for some reason.
Hey Suki! It was raining. So I tried something with your OCs. It is probably not good in real life, I don't know about clothing. (I think I missed a few eyes on Yolanda.)
Have shilled mine to the high heavens, so won't post here. But if it's okay, I would like to draw some more interaction between them and others. It's very fun.
Want to draw something comfy. A few sketches already, but they'll take a long time to finish. Want it to look good.
Candice and Jackie, being best friends. I really need to draw them more together.
I've got a couple comic ideas but I've never been too good at drawing comics. I wish I has some "bitstrips" style thing to make them with or one of those writer/artist partnerships
I don't know how I fucked up so badly in saving the picture. It's shocking. Sorry dude.
It kinda works, but I think the problem is in the cables ;_;
It keeps disconnecting randomly, and my driver already has a history of stopping working forever until I restart as soon as I disconnect the tablet, no matter how many times I reinstall it, so my pen pressure dies reeeally fast and the lines are a bit less smooth. I still can still make quick doodles, but since restarting the computer every ten minutes is pretty annoying I'm giving up of more complex stuff untill I buy a new one >:
Ohh, she looks adorable!
Haha oh man, wonder where that came from.
>"I don't know who in the Sam Hill could possibly be passing on the notion that I transmit AIDS to people. Really! Has there been a single instance in which-"
>Notices Axe-kun's shit-eating grin.
>"EVERYONE, I WOULD LIKE TO INFORM YOU THAT AXE HAS HERPES"
>"SHUT THE FUCK UP"
Yo, are we gonna be hearing Vega's backstory?
And sort of interaction, here. Axe and Arrow hate each others' guts. Axe trips Arrow during battle, Arrow sabotages Axe's dates, Axe hides all of Arrow's underwear, the list goes on. Sometimes they make out but they pretend it doesn't happen because that's gross.
She's a little bit of a shyguy, not much into human interaction but will talk the ear off any animal. She's pretty cheery as far as things go, but aside from that I haven't got much. Any input? I'd love some help.
if its not registering pressure or movement you should go to your services and restart you pen tablet services that usually works for me.
Nothing, really. Getting on each other's nerves, neither of them actually have STDs. I don't think it will be brought up very frequently. Surprised someone remembers that drawing though, it was silly.
I dumped some of her backstory in an earlier thread, but since I just sorta make a lot of it up on the fly, it's hard to write anything cohesive to post here.
Like, her story is a bunch of events and such but with lots of gaps where I haven't come up with what happens yet.
But a pretty simple breakdown would be...she falls from the sky into a biker church...has amnesia and gets taken care of by the members of said church...then fights gangs because they threaten the church...gangs get tired of her shit and burn down the church and kill everyone...she's not happy and her power is revealed...gangs all die...from then on it gets more complicated and needs more of my characters to be introduced.
But yeah, she loses it and blood gushes from her back, then black bird wings rip through...the blood only happens the first time, though...and now that I'm thinking about it, the whole thing feels symbolic of puberty or losing virginty.
>lifting the back of your coat for everyone to see your behind

>Show us your OCs O-Face
My tablet doesn't work properly anymore but I tried anyway
Pff, its ok, thank you anyway!~
I am kinda crap at bodies right now, but I'll try anything.
OC name is Michaela.
imma try to do the response challenge for the rest of the thread.
Technically its not furry at all, since it isnt anthro.
and since nothing is fucking it, it's not bestiality either.
There's... not really any rules it's breaking.
From my experience, probably not. But most people in the/irc or ok with it.
I had a similar experience in the irc, but with that bug crawling fetish, and everyone was pretty much ok with it. There were same jokes yeah, but no ill-will.
Copy paste wall o text, OC for game idea.
XO is a robot who doubles as an exo suit for a wearer. being worn by a strong person causes her pleasure, and the more intense the pleasure, the stronger she becomes, unlocking new abilities.
Those who created her cant unlock her true potential, and set out to find a wearer who can at a robotics convention
she spots someone with a remote control robot fighting a human fighter, and says he's the one (those who worked on her assume she meant the guy controlling the robot, and ask why him because his robot loses to a human.)
The guys name is Endo, a martial artist. he doesnt know much about technology (has trouble sending a picture in a text) and thats what makes him special. hes all fighter. While his lack of technology understanding will be a source of comedy, it will also be his strength. he takes XO to limits the technicians would never have dreamed of, much less actually attempted. Hes your typical adult shonen hero. at one point in the story, a group would come to claim XO, claiming to have funded her, and thus own her. Endo will defend her, telling them you cant own a person. XO, flushed by someone speaking of her like this (the technicians always speak of her like a machine) gets an energy boost for this fight.
Power and abilities:
When they convince him to try it, XO finds her self in pleasure wearing him. the more intensely he moves, the more intense the pleasure. (her creators couldnt reach this potential and power because theyre just a bunch of scrawny beta computer nerds who think too much)
The more he uses her, the more her pleasure builds up, and a climax meter is charged.
It can be then used to unleash a climax attack, in which XO essentially has an orgasm, with orgasm themed moves.
A trembling climax will have them dishing out a flurry of punches, like often seen in DBZ
The pillow biter climax has the faceplate of the suit become giant shark like teeth and chomping on the target
and other attacks based one legs buckling, multiple climax and spray damage.
XO sound like exo, as in exoskeleton or exo suit, also symbols for kisses and hugs, and looks like an orgasming emoji
Endo comes from endoskeleton, the opposite of an exoskeleton.
He's a lot like Ryu from Street Fighter. toying with the idea of him having long hair, which pokes out of the suit as a pony tail when worn.
Its funny you post that -8 because i just posted a character who has a screen for a face and she can do that lol
XO is a cute robot girl who becomes and exo suit for Endo.
Imagine like, Kamen rider, but the suit is a cute robot girl, and fighting while wearing her is arousing to her, and after being aroused, you can unleash powerful "climax" moves.
>Show us your OCs O-Face
Ok...It was in the process of violent balls electrolution.
pretty early stage right now. she is hanging from a chute at the bottom of a small ship. her friend is going to be hanging off of her by her pants
blue thing is a giant tv screen hanging off the building
kryptish refs WIP gotta put in the genitals and fix those tiny ass hands
Maybe try using more smooth rounded forms. She looks like she is supposed to be voluptuous, and she already has a spherical head.
Well a key part of her design isnt being able to shift into an armor for a masculine looking dude.
This was the only drawing done of her so far as an attempt to map out what shifts to where in the change.
a beta design basically
Thats really fucking cute though, thank you! major thing its missing is the headband like thing that becomes the visor in suit mode though.
*is being able to
I tried to use a mix of angular and rounded so that by shifting the feminine shape becomes more masculine. like how her round raised hips move down and is more straight when he is wearing her.
My Pokemon trainer OC "Ninja Trainer Ayumi"
Sounds like they need to learn how to teamwork properly.
Related quick drawing of them working togheter to accomplish their goal.
man, i love these two :B
I am talking about it's based on an inside joke. the beard, Facial expression, and saying stuff like "It's a Living..." is based on me. Everything else is completely different
Ever wanted to see Ariel Rebel drawn as an 80s poster girl but also with a dick? Here you go.
>we can draw pics of real people and post them?
Dunno, I took my chances. First time posting in one of these threads.
Thinking of doing a few more of these, be it with a dick or not. What do you think?
Ok you already had me with the adorable design, but then you go and say that
>Steecky’s android model is specialized in bjs, sooo, let’s say she loves to give blowjobs the most
NOW YOU HAVE MY FULL ATTENTION.
Also this was actually going to be a tumblr only picture but then i decided to post it here anyway since the thread is going kinda slow.
Maybe it's cause you're like "ok gotta sleep" and at that point have no responsibilities until the next day, so you just relax and WHOSH! cause your brain doesn't have to focus on other stuff.
Idk just a theory I use for myself.
it was a dead giveaway but at least the joke was worth it
Yoo thank you! now that's some good stuff, also dat filename
I had just enough free time to "finish" this ref on her.
i said before she was for a game i wanted to make, her weapon is a giant hammer that can be stored in Groovy's mouth.
Groovy buffs her stats so she can handle it easily, but if they overdo it she starts to look spooky.
Nah, there's nothing inside him but an endless void and some usual doll stuffing.
This image gives me an idea for a fun challenge
>Give your OC a full Super Smash Bros. moveset. Bonus points if you can come up with a unique mechanic for them that doesnt feel out of place akin to the DLC characters of Smash WiiU/·DS
Well I mean B moves and final smash, no need to come up with A moves and stuff. no need to come up with jabs, smashes, nairs, fairs and all that stuff.
The most fun of making smash movesets is come up with the B moves!
>Draw your oc as a pokemon trainer. Which OCmon do they choose as their starter?
And HP can be my first starter.
Warm up sketch!
Haha, I don't think this is wrong. Amura is certainly not deep or anything. Has little to no story at all. What story she does have is just a joke for the most part. I just doodle her for fun mostly. She is just dumb fun.
Yes I do think that she is at her best when she is interacting with other characters. She is just a big ol' flirt.
SO YOU FINALLY DECIDE TO SHOW UP, HUH? I WON'T FORGET THE DAY YOU FIRST ARRIVED...
(I'll never forgive you.)
Had some help from Danko to mount the image hue
Mariana also has some shit taste in music, but she's more into trap music and mashups.
They're listening to SEu Madruga Will GO On while being a bit lewd and making Groovy's "ears" bleed.
I love the idea of them just listening to shit while doing lewd stuff. Steecky would give her a mixtape after they're done
>Show us your OC's O-Face
I tried. I hate how much white is in here, but whatever.
I also decided to namefag myself now.
Draw the girl on the right as a huge dicked raping the boy of the left
my oc is brian and Shelley. they have been close friends since childhood. when they were 12 thier teacher took them to dennys and told them that they had the gift. they had the gift to see the end times. from that day they dedicated thier lives to fighting off the forces of evil and finding out thier true powers
Man, I can't get your character right.
Here you go again...
>when they were 12 thier teacher took them to dennys and told them that they had the gift. they had the gift to see the end times
>took them to dennys
>they had the gift to see the end times
I love it already.
local harpy muscle-lesbian and her friend
Well, Time to post a random OC.
So I was bored and decided to do my own challenge to do a Super Smash Bros. shitty moveset for Ammy.
Ignore the horrble drawing plz.
>Normal Attacks, Titls, Smashes
All her normal attacks use different types of kicks, this includes all aerials and smashes with the sole exception that her F-Smash has her awkwardly swinging her sword at the enemy like a golf club.
>Side B: Mera/Merami/Merazoma
Her Side B has her tossing a little fireball that moves a certain distance in an arc, you can charge it into "Merami" which is bigger, faster and can track an oponent that is bellow its travel arc. however the spell randomy can go highwire turnning into a powerful "Merazoma" but it explodes right in Ammy's face, this deals huge damage to anyone caught in the explosion but damages Ammy slightly and stuns her for a moment.
>Down B: Raidein
Her heroic blood allows Ammy to use the legendary spell Raidein to call upon a bolt of lighning next to her, this is really good for edgeguarding but the spell can sometimes hit her instead of falling next to her, this is more powerful than the normal spell and even if it doesnt damage Ammy it leaves her stunned and open to being attacked for a brief moment.
>Up B: Zoom.
Ammy uses the Zoom spell to launch upwards, this launch doesnt cause damage and is purely for recovery, however while in flight you can press B again to "land", ammy launches down and crashes into the stage, if an enemy is hit by the crash it can easily be KO'd by it, but Ammy gets stunned for a long time after using it. so use with extreme caution.
>Neutral B: Caballero Lethal Blade.
This is the interesting part, when you use her Neutral B Ammy simply grabs her sword with her hand, if you are hit while in that stance you take double damage and knockback. however pressing any direction during that stance allows her to use the powerful Caballero blade arts, these are her mother's signature moves.
And I will have to explain them in the next post.
Neutral B + Down: Cut the Earth.
Powerful downward slash with both hands, has huge attack power and deals big damage to shields, it can be done in the air and causes Ammy to launch downward very fast, the higher in the air you were when using it the more powerful it is, and from a certain height it can instantly break shields. drawback is a long recovery time after use.
>Neutral B + Left/Right: Cut the Sea.
Extremely fast foward backhanded slash, very high range, fast startup and recovery, the most important part is that it can cut throught any energy attack and if you do so the attack range, power and speed doubles, great tool to use against spammers. also the cut energy attack shoots diagonally upwards and downwards and can hit other opponents.
>Neutral B + Up: Cut the Sky
A sword slash so fast no one can see with the naked eye, once used the attack is so fast a flash of light happens and ammy is instantly seen with her back towards where the slash happened and a faint ray of light remains where the attack was dealt. it does absolutely no damage or knockback to anything attacked by it, however if the opponent was in the middle of an airdodge (or under any kind of invincibility) when hit by it they get instantly KO'd. the attack is instantaneous with no startup but has an extremely long recovery that has Ammy sheating her sword. it's her most risky attack by far.
>Final Smash: Giga Break.
Ammy raises her sword to the sky and casts a powerful Gigadein lightning spell that hits and charges up her sword, then she leaps upwards off the stage, then a range appears where she will land that the player can control, after a few seconds she will land on that area dealing a devastating electric attack to anything inside that range.
And thats it! I know no one cares about this but I was bored. it was kinda fun coming up with this crap.
We were talking about aliens in the IRC so I decided to dust off this old pic.
As old as this is, I'm still pretty fucking pleased with the design. I should redraw her again.
the idea (kinda like piper) was taking a bunch of specific design aspects i like and putting them together.
and non visable mouths and three clawed hands, ect.
Thinking about it I see many aspects here in Karmen, Piper, Shade and Likea.
I think im gonna ditch the arm wraps on her though, her arm pattern is cool enough on its own.
Well then it might take a bit of sweet talking, but it's definately not impossible
Want to know where i keep my pokeballs?
MMMMH I THINK I KNOW WHAT I'M GOING TO DO NEXT.
BUT NOW I REALLY WANT TO SEE THE SCREWING. AHR AHR AHR. But seriously, i really like it, thanks man!
To be fair, that does sound like something Amelia would do.
-8 is Knives, confirmed.
MMMH yes. Perfect. Good job Ettoren. And to be fair, i would love to know more about Axe-Kun and the rest of the squad. Like, actual backstory and stuff. Maybe you guys already talked about it but i'm fairly new to 4chan in general so i might have missed it.
OH MY GOD that's so cute! Good job Anon! Botty for us all.
Wow this thread is slow this week.
Bump limit. What do you guys think about these challenges?
>Swap two OCs' hairstyles. Or draw an OC with a bunch of different hairstyles.
>Your OC's personality is now reversed! What is he/she like?
A little late, but here's that drawing of Raford's imp that I said I'd do.
Also, a bit late to the party, but Here's a 2 for one! My OCs giving each other the o-face!
Since i was bored and i can't draw lewds, i decided to try this.
Mariana with long and tomboyish hair
In the IRC, Remed posted a link to an awesome Youtube vid that got us talking about old 50s/60s/70s animated films/shows. Inspired by that, I wanted to try and make an image that kind of looked like a screenshot/screen-grab of a show from that era, so I decided my and Ettoren's mage characters ought to have a conversation on the mating habits of orcs. I think the result came out pretty good for a first attempt. Probably try to draw some actual lewdness in this kinda style later.
Viria, on the left, is mine. Samanta on the right is Ettoren's.
I love it!
But, you know...I haven't give her name. (If any anon want to name her, You can do it).
Thanks a bunch! It was pretty fun to work on, actually.
Honestly, it's mostly about research and observation. I looked around online at a variety of examples of cartoons and films from that era and tried to identify the "common factors" that gave them that distinctive style. Once I'd narrowed it down to exactly what was shared between most of them, I just used those same ideas.
This is Ghio (shorter for Giovanna)
She's outgoing, open-minded and often jokingly flirty, and seems to have no shame of anything. So people often think she's a slut - but truth is that in between four walls, she's rather shy and romantic, even prude. She has lost a ton of boyfriends, since they come to her thinking she's easy sex everyday and.. she's not.
She's losing her virginity to her best friend in this exactly instant in an rp I'm doing so shrugs I decided to post her
Someone commented they look stoned, they we started talking about high wizards smoking magic weed.
Basically Viria shows the conservative Samanta kinky stuff and the goods of life.
OK now here is a proper ref-sheet for the kryptish alien. the horglich genitals are the purple things and they only work with other kryptish the female can only get pregnant through the horglich and she deposits eggs through the pseudo vagina. the male can impregnate almost any other creature with successful hybrids using the pseudo penis.
Here's where my lack of understanding of fundamental female anatomy shines through. Gonna be awkward when "boobs" starts appearing as one of my top searches.
Sorry that I copycatted and tried something with an older-looking style also. Wanted to do it after seeing this.
In any case, hdash, it really does look like a screencap of something. Like it a lot. Teach me your ways? I have trouble getting my lines to look that smooth.
Wanted to respond to this earlier because I pretty much lost it when I saw this. Those fuckin expressions man. Thanks Ettoren!
I'm glad you like them. That also made me lose it. Ah, man.
>Wow this thread is slow this week.
Isn't it? Funny how now that we've reached bump limit we're sinking like a rock. Usually the sinking and posting rates are reversed.
I do have backstory, but I'm hesitant on posting it because it's garrulous and difficult to interpret. So I'll hold off while I clean it up. In any event, thanks for being interested. It means a lot to have people like your characters or want to know more about them.
>Your OC's personality is now reversed! What is he/she like?
Will expand next thread if this becomes a challenge. All I have for now:
>They're best friends
>Arrow dropped out of community college to become a stripper
So does reverse Axe love sinful stuff and is never ever angry?
I bet he thinks Incest is the worst thing ever!
Thats an interesting challenge, Yuwatu already introduced me to the wonders of Bizarro Ammy so I may expand on that next thread.
I did it.
(Now, This is going end up being a NTR story)
>Show us your OCs O-Face
I decided a few days ago that it could be interesting if I gave Lydia the ability to change her color palette, but I still haven't decided how or how frequently she'd do it.
Thanks a bunch! I think the boobs look good there, and that's an awesome pic. Also, don't worry about thinking you're "copy catting" or whatever, experimenting and trying new things is almost always to be applauded, regardless of where the original idea came from.
>Teach me your ways?
In terms of trying to replicate a specific style, it's all about research and observation, really. As I mentioned before, for that image I spent some time looking at screenshots of various shows and films from that time period, and trying to take notes about what kinds of things they had in common that gave them their distinctive looks. For that image, the key things I found were:
>Characters have no/negligible shading
>Line thickness was mostly uniform, with little tapering/thinning
>For less cartoony/more realistic characters, eyes are drawn simplistically, typically colored without eye-whites and with simple dots for an iris. Also, their eyes would be more realistically proportioned to their head (I didn't bother with this part too much here, but I might in the next pic I draw like it). Think Scooby-Doo versus his pal Shaggy.
>Since there's rarely any character shading, texture seems to have been presented through line-work alone when needed (wasn't really relevant for the image I made, but was something I noticed during research and really stood out with, say, a rock monster or creepy alien)
>Animation was done by physically taking pictures of animation cels overlaying a pre-painted background. This gives the characters/animated objects a much more crisp/sharp look than the background (think old Scooby-Doo shows where you know SOMETHING is going to happen with that bush because it's so obviously different)
>Related to above, since it was all done on physical film, there are, of course, artifacts of that process, film grain, dust, scratches, etc. Honestly, that was probably the easiest part, which I'll get into below (character limits)
>The film grain effect I did was just a simple layer of neutral grey set to Soft Light (depending on the look you want, Overlay works too) with some pixelated noise, blurred a bit, and opacity lowered to taste. Add in a layer of "film dust and scratches" templates I found online, make sure the subtitles are placed above all the effects, and viola. An image that looks like a subtitled screen shot of a show.
As for the lines being smooth, that's mostly just a matter of practice more than anything. For this specific image I used Photoshop and did the lines by hand with one of the default brushes (named 'Hard Round Pressure Size') set to 3 pixels in width the entire time (normally I would alter the size for more varied line widths, but the point above about line thickness influenced that decision). For tapering lines like that (the pointy ends of Viria's bangs, the folds in their robes), I'll normally draw the line a bit longer/beyond where they should be, then erase them into shape, if that makes sense.
Usually, when doing lines in Photoshop, I tend to zoom in on the picture and work at a magnified level. Photoshop seems unique in that you can actually have multiple windows for the same image open at once, so I'll always open a spare window off to the side with the image at the intended final size and make sure things look good while I do them. For programs without that feature, occasionally zooming out to see the overall image is the only way to do something like that. When I do my inking in another program, I actually tend to not zoom in, and just be as careful as possible. I don't tend to work in smooth, single strokes, but more rapid, shorter ones (very obvious in my sketches). When doing lines, it's just a matter of being more controlled and deliberate with those strokes.
I decided to attach a WIP version of that image I made when I was a quarter done with the inking. Don't know if it helps, but there it is.
Could we extend it? Like...if your OC is a robot, monstergirl, or something along those lines, draw them as a human, and if your OC is human, draw them as something non-human, like a robot/cyborg/etc.
Depends on the line, honestly. If curves are giving you trouble, you can always use the "Pen" tool that most drawing programs have. That tool creates a usually multi-point vector that you specify then draws a stroke that follows it smoothly. Personally, for curves (and most of my lines, really) I make heavy use of drawing an area/zone I want the final line to be in, and erasing it to fit. I'll do up a picture/demonstration to help show what I'm talking about. I would say I probably spend about an equal amount of time using both the brush and the eraser.
For that specific picture, I probably spent maybe 15-20 minutes on the lines already done in the WIP shot, and another 30-45 minutes (hard to tell, I wasn't really timing myself, and I rolled right into coloring afterward) finishing up after that. I did have to go back and touch up a few things on the already established lines, though, like that line on Viria's sideburns that looks crazy distorted.
Come on, with tools like that you'll never improve.
What I do have problems with is making the transitions between lines smooth also I often have trouble deciding which line of the sketch I should ink
Some SFW doodles I did, although I bet phone will rotate it wrong
You're right, the pen tool IS a bit like cheating, depending on what you want to do. If you're trying to get better at drawing curves, then yeah it's totally cheating. If you're just trying to finish/do a drawing it's just another tool.
Attached is an example of how I often do curves, and lines in general, in a step-by-step kind of manner.
#1: Base Sketch
#2: "Ink Block" added. I wouldn't usually go quite this thick, but it's a demonstration. Base sketch has been overlayed on top in white for comparison (normally I sketch over it, as in my earlier WIP)
#3: Starting the process of erasing my way to the final product.
#4: A bit more illustrative of how I actually do it, with the white circle being the eraser. I typically use just the very edge of the eraser, like I'm chiseling away at my "ink block."
#5: Base "finished" curve
#6: Refining the curve to look more smooth by carefully nudging away bits and pieces either sticking out or at the wrong angle.
#7: Red line of 6. Lots of things still off about the line, but depending on the image that may just be good enough for what I need. For example, if had doubled the size of the sketch with the intent of shrinking it back down after I had finished, I would probably leave that line as is since those minor defects will be mostly lost in the resize process.
Hope that helps.
Couple of sketches I did yesterday
I any one has requests let me know
Very nice. Anything you'd like to do with my OCs would be appreciated.
This is a place for you to talk about OCs that you have made. That sounds more like a request kinda thing, but the general drawthread'll probably get pissed if you post there. Honestly don't have a good answer for you, sorry.
Best thing to assume that whatever you post is no longer your property. Personally I don't mind since I come up with mine on the fly.
Speaking of, I have a new OC!
This is Belmara Irongut. She is a dwarf who enjoys cooking, adventuring and love-making, in that order. She travels the world seeking out exotic foods to cook and loyal companions to share them with. Ask me anything about her you want to know.
This exactly. It may seem nitpicky, but it does prevent this thread from devolving into general drawthread 2.0. Plus you miss out on the discussion and challenges if it's not your own.
