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.
Yes, the hands needs to be revised as well as the curvature of the eyelashes.
However I'm really puzzled on why you think her cheek is deformed, I think the face mask should have some irregular folds (some that dont even describe what is underneath) due to its material, wrapping around and hand pressure.
Anyway, I appreciate you are taking the time to identify my fuck ups.
So <3 to you too
Ah, I thought I did sorry, for some reason it resizes the image when I crop things.
Trying my hand at quick character thumbnail work. First time ever trying it this way, so I'm sure the costumes and stuff look like shit.
Currently painting a vinyl poster I picked up from the mall(pretty huge).
Right now I'm trying to make purple crystals and rainbow clouds. The foreground image is covered with paper because I will stencil it later.
Just some concepts. Sorry for the quality. It's the best I can do on phone atm.
random tower girls. tried using perspective.. errr i dont get it.
I cant make smooth, long lines because my skin grips on the surface texture of the intuos pro AAARRRRGG
anybody got a tip to help or you just have to grind your way out?
Struggling with this right now. was just going to be a doodle but now im committed
Excuse cancerous image quality, no scanner available at 5am
First of all, the painting isn't done yet and it's not a collage. My progresstion usually looks horrid before it gets better because I plot down colors to work with. I Just masked the main image that I will stencil later. This my firs time free-handing a background so THANKS FOR THE MOTIVATION BUDDY!
Dear god the pic you posted with your defense better be a joke.
Not the anon who critiqued you but you need to be honest, if someone didn't know better, it DOES look like a collage at first glance.
>Better be a joke.
What's so hilarious about it?
I taught myself to work with stencils and spraypaint, and currently trying to break that stencil technique-bond because it is too tedious and I want to get to do the shit freehand like the spraypaint artist on youtube how they make pictues of space and planets within 30minutes. It's my first time freehanding paint.
This poster already took me over a month because I work 12hr shifts and really have no time off to do much.
I might transfer over to airbrushing for the winter months but working with spraypaints is too satisfying to completely leave.
Another one of my works, but completely done by stencil... sonething I want to move from.
A crowded bedroom is no fucking fun as a workspace. I plan on moving into the basement this year.... or making a workspace down there. Either way I am expanding on space to work with.
>That black wall with green stripe
Looks cozy pham
>mfw I can't color my wall cuz it's against apartment regulations
>I plan on moving into the basement this year
Please tell me you live with your parents, the keks will be had if your honest :^)
I still live at home. Right now I am trying to get back into college and finish that shit and move out in five years.
I went for three years already, fucked around with loans and now it almost like my last year of college didn't matter.
Also... I fear apartments. They just seem to have low security, based on how many times my cousin and uncle get shit stolen while at work.
Right now I have a $200 deadbolt on my bedroom door and it's a foreigh high security lock from Finland. I just hope if I ever move out I will be able to put it on my apartment.
My bedroom used to look like this last year. Should of left it as is but I hated waking up and hitting my head on the ceiling.
Here's my warning. GET THE ONE WITHOUT WHEELS!
Mine rocked so hard that the solders broke. Now I am using the metal frame of an old glass computer table as the base of the glass top(look closely).
In hindsight, I should of went with the one with regular legs.
Doing sketches of a camera before committing to a composition
A study of Ovewatch Character Widowmaker
Not crazy about the animu style, but liked the painting.
Getting distracted. The weird angle on the helmet orbs was bugging me.
It's not a requirement or anything but it's a way to train your eye to be able to accurately distinguish the different hues, it makes you a better artist in the traditional sense since you can't really color pick when painting irl.
I think the anatomy is fucked but idk how exactly? Maybe I made the face too long or torso too short?? Someone toss me a bone here. idk what im doing
Hey guys. I've done a few quick sketches depicting some social commentary. Any feedback is appreciated!
In addition to social and philosophical work, I also do portraits, and am fully open to accepting commissions. Just ask for my email to inquire about price. As for this piece, I made sure to pay special attention to the mouth. I wanted to bring out the pure joy shown to me by the subject. Also note the expressive eyes. Hope you enjoy!
>you think the hair is throwing off the proportions or did I simply fuck up?
I think the hair is indeed messing the perception but the reference also has other visual cues like values that are crucial in creating a sense of believability in this problematic pose
Unfortunately I'm not at a level in which I could advise a solution other than try to render it to match the reference much more closely (almost like it was a study) or lower and/or cover the left arm.
I try not to outright copy reference, i only use it for inital rough sketch and then i put it away, feels too much like cheating otherwise
manga studio ex, on the left is when i draw with the mouse. which is correct. on the right is when i draw with stylus. i will post a screenshot of app directly after this( after cooldown ) can anyone help...
heres the screen. a reinstall doesnt fix this problem
>Forgot we had this one hour thread
Made myself a cube brush, which I like more than the hard round. Gonna try another in a sec, but overall I think I need better brush economy - doing less is more. I feel like I'm chicken scratching but with paint
My poor facsimile is on the left. The original is on the right by Demizu Posuka
I know i messed up a lot. Never really drawn before and thought id give it a shot. Inspired by my current wallpaper. Meant to be raven cossplaying misty from pokemon. Anyome have tips for a noob like me? Really would like to get better. Just drew this.
I will post 2 wips. gonna finish them sometimes this week,
Thanks! I do have a profile on arstation and drawcrowd, but I didn't upload anything there for a while. I will be back on IC (drawthread) with more stuff, will share links if you will still be interested then.
Man, my condolences, but all those super 90's hues just give me flashbacks to the rainbow sponge lady.
I was kinda going that way with the design.
im really slow, need to redo most of it cause of resizing,
im not bad... im just not good yet, with proportions and things
I'd suggest working on your construction a bit more before you start rendering, a good way to get proportions right is measuring with your eyes (so to speak), as stereotypical as it is, this is the reason why artists hold their thumb/pencil/brush up in cartoons.
Somethin i sketch in during a short meeting, nothing impressive.
Trying study, goddamn it my brain hurts because I need to learn more.
Not that you care, but I just don't draw.
I bought toned paper earlier today for the first time. It's fun, but I'm not used to adding highlights as a layer rather than implying them with an eraser on white paper.
Critique is appreciated.
The scan quality destroyed so much of the finer details of this piece, sadly. Your highlights could better integrated into the piece, they look scratchy and thin, while your other values are very blended. The skull doesn't feel very bone like, either, because what is blended is very very smoothly blended. So make a compromise between the two looks and you'll be in the money.
fuck it did this as a bullshit let see what weird shit I can pull from the top of my head sort of thing to get used to digital work sorta thing.
Why is Valentine in quotes? Anyway you can post email, though most people use an extra throwaway one. I'm looking for commission work, maybe I can help you out? What sort of card are you looking to have drawn?
just did something with inspiration of lovecrafts desert adventures.
im not really tryna push any style... im just drawing how i like drawing i guess, not tryna say 'muh style' or anything i study a lot of other artists and try to practice anatomy
Working without ref. Let me know if I missed something, redlines appreciated, etc.
Haha! I spent some time working on feminizing her after the fact. Mostly hips, etc. It's difficult when most of the perspective figure drawing exercises I've worked through are male figures and then I have to apply the concepts to female figures. Perhaps it would be worth my time to buy a book specifically on female anatomy?
Do I need more Loomis?
Great post probably my favorite on /ic/ this place needs more men like you willing to go the extra mile to say nothing of value.
You all keep telling me to practice Loomis, but when will all this skill translate over to my sexy anime girls?
haven't drawn in years. im trying to into art again.
first thing i've done, hour time limit
Corrected an ass ton of stuff with lassoing and mouse.
Playing w head construction w/o ref. Tricky business making them look believeable.
Just sketched this out in a few minutes. I'm a serious artist who attempts sketches his testicles.
Still no new Beginner thread.
The hair and clothing bothers me the most, but any advice what to do in general?
Sorry for posting in two threads but old beginner thread is about to 404 anyway.
1hr of cat """studies""".
damn it feels good to be a cuck
No construction, still don't understand much about it or how to apply it.
Every time I drew the lower lip it looked completley wrong and i endet up implying it with that line. Its hard to sugest details using hard lines.
my friend wants me to make him some shitty little cards for this game hes made up.
Currently working on a Lion who is also an aristocrat (aristocat?) Started about an hour ago but its going to take me a lot longer.
Seriously, I have no creativity when it comes to designing original, fantasy characters. Any tips?
Really rough start
Not bad for a noobie but keep drawing everyday for more than an hour and I you will definitely improve. Try drawing the hands from different perspectives and with different lighting.
Is it just a bad looking concept or is it just because of the half-assed lines? Wondering if it's worth fixing
That one was kinda drawn when I kinda force myself to, which honestly seems to never works. When I get into drawing more naturally, I got stuff like this.
Not sure if you want this critiqued but I think the clothes are hugging the skin too much and looks too anime-y (as opposed to looking like a well done manga illustration)
Other than that the composition is really well done, haven't seen something that balanced in a while, very pleasing to the eyes.
Ram horns are looking a bit too flat and uneven but I'm guessing that's because this is just a sketch.
Thank you! I don't draw that often, so I haven't really improved much in the past few years and I don't really know what I'm best at or my weak points, so it's good if someone could point out my flaws.
Sorry for the chicken scratch and shitty phone quality, but how do I fix this?
