Post em now.
-Commenting is OK but do not expect much from an hour's work.
-Posting WIP's, studies, "doodles", and random sketches are highly encouraged.
-The art must be fresh. Like you just drew it in the past hour.
Getting there... slowly.
Oh please sir, tell me more about the land of Gud. Is it true that Bouguereau girls sharpen your pencils with their feet and groves of graphite trees bear only the ripest Loomis heads?
Were you the OP of the past ones?
The last one was far on the last pages.
I really like the thread idea, however I disagree with the stance of not commenting by default, that's why I made the small edit
I was only the OP of the one with the Sonic drawings and I added "Go fast" to the op text. The past few OPs haven't gotten rid of it though so I was going to make a new thread to get a chance to take it out before it could keep getting copied over but I keep missing the chance.
For the tower girl thread. Technically took longer than an hour and more like an hour and a half but I was also eating.
I would lean towards no because that looks like it was done on some kind of mobile device and Firez is pretty outspoken about how poor he is. Also he doesn't usually start out painterly, he seems to start everything with this really hesitant looking lineart.
Just trying to get the hairstyle right before I move onto the actual drawing.
I recognize that style
This took me a good 40 minutes.
Tell me what you think, just started taking drawing seriously, I'd really appreciate some feedback.
Read pic related. Also, read the sticky.
If you're trying to take drawing seriously. You should practice drawing shapes. Spheres/ellipses, cubes, pyramids, and cylinders.
Right now you don't really know how things look in 3d space. Your drawing is very flat. Drawing the simple 3D shapes I mentioned will help train your brain.
Let's leave it, I would say is a general good advice for sketches and learning to let go.
If you develop it further cross check with reference particularly for the lower part. I kind of like her expression so far.
You got me, I have already posted several sketches and doodles from my Note 4, using my work's collective plan it was cheap to get.
Love your retro anime style.
You should reconsider the way you do eyes they usually look very plain, don't forget that they are spheres wrapped by skin.
Pero sigue así y trata de no desanimarte.
I was using a reference by the way. It felt like painting with oils you know, a big spot then defining the details.
About your coment on the linework. Is this better? (pic related)
Scanning this once I finish painting it.
I started drawing on my phone recently, im not so good without references.
WIP. My attempt at an orc girl.
Just got a tablet the other day...shit is alot harder to use than i thought it would be. This took about an hour
Trying to paint.
criticism please. I'm just making up the process as I go because I'm fucking clueless
Venom fav just need a good background, suggestions?
People tend to just jump into "painting" as if it's different from drawing, but a good painting needs a good under drawing. Your paintings will come out easier and be better if you start with something solid and real instead of trying to just go at it.
Use ref too, I'm not really sure what the dark sploches are describing but I think you could do it better looking at real canyons and rocks and things.
The left foot (his right) isn't in perspective compared to the other one. The sword and shield are also drawn flat on. The chainmail done with a brush looks pretty lazy too.
Push yourself to draw these things in perspective and you'll elevate your drawings. The guy looks pretty cool you're just tripping up in places.
Keys to drawing project 2a, copy a master drawing.
I like the rendering but something about her face kind of reminds me of a zora.
Tampoco creo que sean malos.
I like the look of the binary tool for sketches, I should try it again.
I think it looks fine without a bg, however 2 things bother me: the inside of the mouth (not shaded) and the body (too small)
Thanks I changed it when I uploaded to my blog. I like your rendering but I think you should try to fix her ear, it should be a bitfurther behind.
i was mostly trying to get the features out, not so much proper shading or anything. how do I draw downward facing faces, up was enough of a challenge ;_;
just got a tablet and downloaded krita, im lost send help
Just something stupid to make myself feel like I still do stuff
Here is another i did with pencil. Tried to redo a Budd Root pic. Looked it over a couple times and then tried to draw from memory. Fixed proportions on the waist and legs a bit in SAI.
Nick Wilde from Zootopia disney movie.
he's paws/hands are "interesting" to draw.
First time SERIOUSLY using a tablet. Second attempt at just fucking around with it tho
Drew this while at work(just got off).
I am trying to draw dreads for a poster i am working on. Not too detailed because i will be stenciling it. Trying to make it look toony though.
Just a quick self portrait I did about a half an hour ago. Any critiques?
I was feeling really flustered yesterday, but I think I internalized some basic proportions. I don't have time today but tomorrow I'll watch vilppu's pelvis video and do studies. I want to draw sexy butts.
That was what I was saying in my head.
I saw a guy today with dreads that were twisted, maybe if I redraw the dreads with twists, it'll help out defining it as actual hair in the poster I made.
So glad I decided to paint the background first. Thanks.
Forgot to post it within an hour of doing it but it probably took me about an hour's worth of time earlier today.
That's not how deltoids work.
Also do your construction.
I have so much I need to study, so many things are off. It was a fun exercise trying to see how much I know off the top of my head. Back to the drawing board so to speak.
Hey guys im trying to made glen of twd what do you think?
I dunno. I mostly doodle despite wanting to git gud because I can't be bothered putting the focus and attention into a 'full' piece..
Studying loomis again. This time Im going to finish it.
Tried drawing sample dreads again at work today for the poster I am working on. I don't even...
just a cat guy. was watching future boy conan and felt inspired.
you got something, keep it up. Go out of your comfort zone, explore! learn how to draw before you learn about perspective and proportions.
>I just gave myself exactly the crit I wanted cause why the fuck not
Come on, anon, you've got talent.
Get out of MS Paint and draw more detail! It's rare for someone to draw exaggerated muscles, I thought that trend died after the 2000s but your stuff is very promising.
I think Monster Hunter type armor is right up your alley.
Think about the form and direction of light. Also maybe try practicing simple rendering when sketching. I dont know how to really describe it but I noticed that Ian McCaig does this. If you look at his sketches from shadowline on Google images then maybe you'll get what I'm saying.
I'm having problems with her pose, making her feel like she's actually in leaning on the floor.
not an hour but its what ive been doing for 3 er so hours not sure
Something looks off with her and I can't tell if it's an anatomy issue or just dumb hair
Sticking with pencil tool for now, because I don't really know how to use soft brushes (or brushes in general). It kinda blurred the shit out of everything I tried.
Hey guys im trying to made glen of twd. What do you think? Some advice?
We meet again, Estimado firez.
You have little problems with the placement of your waifu's eyes and nose, you know, I'm not a fucking pro or expert but that is my opinion.
Just got off work, been doodling dreads for most of the shift and It still feels off.
I am making these as refrerence for a much larger poster that I am making.
Ignoring the shiet hand, how are the values and clothing wrinkles?
First drawing I've ever posted on 4chan. Hope you enjoy
firez, in almost every drawing you do, i have noticed that you blend or almost do your lines and semi tones on the same layer and they get mixed together. is this intentional? because its giving everything you draw a ghost like quality. im not for or against it. its just something i have noticed.
>drawing is too small
>pixelated as fuck
>vectors come out jaggy
>only solution is to trace it after resize
>high resolution lines are different and can't trace it propely
christ fuck I hate this digital shit so much
Just some shit I banged out in the stockroom at work. Figuring out some characters for a personal project.
Yes, I just can't help using tone even when I try to do just line work, it's like I can't grasp form without putting down some tone. I'm trying to change that.
Now that I've left it for a while I noticed I made her head a bit too big, maybe it also needs to be more boxy, the structure of her hair isn't quite matching particularly on the top and I need to make her ear smaller...Maybe there are other things.
Could you please tell me why it looks so off to you? I fear that what I posted above isn't what you meant.
Another daily doodle.
No problem man, would love to see your blog if you have one.
Decided to make a last try at least in the context of this thread
firez. I dont know how you construct your faces, or how that hand connects to anything. But i think its amazing that you keep drawing the nose wrong so often.
Just draw a line through the middle of the lip and it should be clear whats wrong.
I had a go at making some things align (ignored the hand haha because I feel like the whole arm is too awkward)
His drawings still have more solid construction. And he's not wrong about the nose being misaligned. Fact of the matter is, the majority of people who come to /ic/ are beginner or intermediate, so if anyone here isn't willing to accept crit from people of that level, they're in the wrong place.
You must not know firez. He tends to like going back and forth until hes satisfied .
I just assume everyone is against me recently my bad. The worst part is you probably can fix the flow with free transform, I just didnt think about it
I̶ ̶w̶o̶n̶d̶e̶r̶ ̶w̶h̶y̶ ̶i̶m̶ ̶s̶o̶ ̶d̶e̶f̶e̶n̶s̶i̶v̶e̶ ̶l̶a̶t̶e̶l̶y̶
Worked on this for the past hour. Still working on getting believable shadow as well as better contrast
I mean, well draw you if you have a good camera, have a fun face and take pictures that are helpful to us. Make a thread where you post at least 1.8kx 1.2k pictures of you at every angle and youll get drawn by at least 10 people. If not, Ill draw you 10 times.
Thanks, I don´t do the skull but I draw some kind of Bridgman proto-head, the issue is (maybe) that I change too much things after that to the point of losing the initial organization.
I will try to revise it in further iterations, Thanks.
Sketchbook Pro for Android
I haven't seen NB's works but it doesn't matter I just wish people here were a bit more specific it's obvious that if any of us made a mistake it's because we were unable to see it,
That happens to me a lot, However, I'm quick at seeing issues in the works of others.
It's been way less than an hour, but this is my latest WIP
Thanks for the interest anon!
Almost everything I do goes in my tumblr:
As for commisions, I'm sorting that out right now, probably by the end of this month I will have it ready. I made a post some weeks ago with more info about this topic:
Taking a pic with a phone is hell. Oh well here this is.
A torso only a mother can love.
AUGH I've been stuck drawing faces for months now like how do u do it
i was at that point too a few months ago. jut get good at the most basic parts. draw 200 loomis heads(as per the proko video, falling the steps EXACTLY) with all the points plotted out but don't add the features. you'll get a lot from that, i remember thinking it was too basic for me too at the time.
after that, and before you carry on with your faces, watch and follow along with this video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8BdIvZk0WZc
then pull up some reference images of figures and animals and construct them out of boxes, cylinders and spheres. you really need to get better at building things out of simple shapes.
after that you should see a LOT of improvement to your faces
when i say 3am i meant i thought about it at 3 and woke up and did it today
Emilia clarke what do you think guys? Looks like her?
