Work on it, lads. Make sure to critique other posters.
I'll start with a couple of studies I did this morning. Feedback appreciated.
One problem is the bundle of wires/tubes on the thigh, that unites the crotch to the knee:
they should be that evenly spaced only at the center of the leg, but at the bottom the space should diminish, each wire seeming closer and closer to the adjacent ones, until at the end of the curve , where the leg touches the chair, the parallel lines should be so close that they almost touch each other.
The fact that they are all always evenly spaced makes the surface look weirdly flat and skews the whole perspective in the area.
Make them legs rounder son.
Also maybe the shoulder pad on the left should be rotated away from the point of view a bit, and perhaps the legs look a bit uneven. The foreshortened one should look a bit bigger if it's closer to the point of view than the other, now it looks almost smaller, while the other leg is spread in a relaxed way in a different direction.
You could also solve this by making the non-foreshortened leg shorter, so it looks like it's in a similar position to the other one, and they're both at the same distance so that's why they have the same size.
As it is now, I think that the legs look a bit uneven: the foreshortened one looks shorter.
Playing around with the length of the other one, the size of this one a tiny tiny bit should be enough to make things look ok.
I just realized that actually the size difference is there at the knee, but for some reason, the knees look different (correctly), while the boots seem to be of equal size. So maybe only half of the shin should be resized.
I'm trying to do a redesign of my Hero's current outfit. I want to get at least 20 or so done just to explore all possibilities. I also wanted to try and use different brushes and tools to color them for extra practice.
can't draw, sorry
Thanks for the advice.
Slowly reworking this now.
I'd share a coke with the pheasant
Quail looks silly but friendly
Starling looks drunk and smug
Eagle looks like a patriot that gets super mad when someone makes a joke about their country, and would probably poison your dog
I don't like drawing over other people's art but here you go.
Been looking into toonboom for doing clean up work and some simple animations.
I hear the UI takes some learning, but there are many resources available.
I need a good light weight vector program anyway so I might try it out.
The problems are:
A) things I want to access (things like opacity, color, that sorta thing) seem to require an extra step to get them. Like...if I'm animating in photoshop or whatever, it's pretty easy to find shit that should be a little more easily accessible.
2) no single key shortcuts, so you can't just press E to pick the eraser or whatever. I map certain functions to my tablet's keys (switching frames, zooming, etc.) but it's really time consuming
3) The preview window is weird, and I don't know if there's a setting for this; basically, the lines are all jagged/pixel-y, even though they're smooth vectors when you export it. It makes it difficult to tell if a line is tapering the way I want it to, or if colors are bleeding where they don't belong. I don't know if it has a setting like AfterEffects where I can change the preview resolution, but if it's in there, it's buried under menus.
I definitely need to watch more videos on it, because it does make animating traditionally a lot faster when you're doing it with vectors. And hey, it's not nearly as convoluted as TVPaint.
just drew on some note-cards today while watching seahawks versus vikings, lol at that miracle ending though how the fuck did he miss that field goal????
i have a tablet for my laptop so nah, notebook doodles are fine for now bro
Drew a harpy in a swimsuit a while back; probably could have done better with the wings/other stuff, but I'll survive.
Probably should practice anatomy a whole lot more this year than I did in 2015 [or just post my stuff here a bit more often]
i tried drawing an anime grill in sketchbook pro, how did i do?
i hadn't drawn anything in a while but i bought nuclear throne during the steam sale and i decided to draw this character
for some reason nuclear throne threads were kicked out of /v/ and we got a general in /vg/
an anon requested a drawing of this character wearing a comfy jacket so i drew the character with a hotline miami jacket
I'm trying to make a cape comic about a guy who get's stuck in a fire and suffers from smoke inhalation, but thanks to quick thinking, he installs his air conditioner into his lungs, allowing him to breathe .
At the same time, the dual speed fans make his body perform at optimum strength, giving him super powers.
Everyone wants powers of their own after learning what happened, so I plan on having him fight flavor of the week villains who have also combined with their household appliances (microwaves, blenders, slapchop, etc)
like this super quick sketch i just did of one of my wildstar characters?
It's good that you have the 'lots of dirty sketches even if they kinda suck' mindset, it's literally the best way to improve. A lot of people won't leave a thing until it's as close to perfect as they can get it (like >>78873690) but that's like covering a smell by painting over its source, so it's good that you're willing to let something be imperfect and move on.
My advice is to start with basic shapes first (squares, circles etc) before adding any features to them instead of starting with the eyes and building around them. Same deal with hair, don't trace an outline, plop some shapes to the head and then outline them.
Try doing a separate sketch of any objects a character is holding, at least for me that works well for keeping things from looking blob-like
I'd read the fuck out of that. The writing is the make-or-break of every comic but from your summary and that pic I think it's gonna be pretty gud. Please post it here when you make it.
>for some reason nuclear throne threads were kicked out of /v/ and we got a general in /vg/
Well, either because they were generals or because Nuclear Throne is fucking awful.
Probably a bit of both.
Funny how NT would be perfect if they ditched the disgusting pixels, letting their artstyle really shine, and made the game run in 60 instead of nauseating 30FPS
looks like someone couldn't beat lil hunter
That's good advice, i really should have done that for the shovel
>calls a game on it's shit
>"hurrr you probably suck at it"
Why would I want to get good at a stuttery shitty game that looks like pixelated vomit?
I don't need to launch it to experience it's best part, I can just listen to the main theme on YT.
I was referring more to the blaster in its hand, for the shovel you could have just drawn it in a separate layer.
Messing around with my tomboy violinist girl. Also having her all dolled up just for fun.
Tried to make her hair a bit curlier to simulate her wild bushy hair. Is this better?
I love the design here. The lack of outlines as well as the shading make the character look more natural.
I'm of a mind with this anon, here >>78868948. I would take the design from the first one on the left, and keep the style of the one on the right and keep the diamond on his chest.
This is really for self-reference but I figured I'd post it so I made the P.S.
I did this a few days ago, the hands I know are a mess, but this is the second one I've done since reading Loomis
