Post em now.
-Commenting is OK but do not expect much from an hour's work.
-Posting WIP's, studies, "doodles", and random sketches is highly encouraged.
-The art must be fresh. Like you just drew it in the past hour.
It looked à bit too plain, also this drawing "tool" is extremely rudimentary,
So this is who makes all those squid sister lobby art. I'm just going to make mine say /ic/.
WIP, something seems wrong but I'll go back and fix it eventually
You won't? Callie is best girl tier.
I saw plenty of scribbles in the plaza, miiverse community has even more, It's a shame you can't repost between these two places though.
I know /ic/ loves to shout "draw from imagination" but the thing is that you have to start somewhere, I would suggest doing some quick studies of that same pose and then try doing your own.
played around with the shapes like anon said in style thread
but this is the only variant I was able to think of that was appealing
anyway off to studying
just noticed this was way too big. here's a resized version
First ever real 'worth anything' attempt using my phone,
I like low lighting
I was trying then I realize it was too much for me to fix her
Im not quite sure, but i think that the position of the butt is wrong.
Like, You have this strong gesture that follows the spine but then the butt just kinda says "fuck you im doing im own thing" and then the rest of the bottom half seems disconnected from the upper body
TL;DR The lower body seems disconnected from the upper body, and the upper body seems like more of an after thought.
working in this but dont know, i feel something wrong.
inb4: you are drawing furryshit, thats the wrong thing.
trying to do some fanart while studying some foreshortening and angles, would be nice if I get some redlines because I feel somethings wrong
Tried a different posistion for the legs
Can't say I'm happy with it though
wip, about to do the line art but any constructive crits would be helpful and appreciated.
lips are a weakpoint for md which is why theyre the focus of this along with hair and skin coloring hence why im focusing on those three here
Done from imagination, hopefully my phone doesn't flip this. Any critique?
Did this as a request on a /co/ board, critique?
This was my first time doing female anatomy.
Paris and Helen composition sketch for a contest, old guy is calchass.
Kek, I want to see this finished at any cost.
It's not that I'm worried about it, I'm just not a furry so I have no idea what the fetish is about.
Should I draw her exactly like she's in the movie, with simplified shapes and all?
Just did this in about 30 mins, any tips or advice would be appreciated
do we care about transitional phases, or just the actions of passing without consequence?
Finally finished the background. First time I free-handed spray paint. I will stencil out the foreground image this week, mostly over the weekend.
here's one of my girlfriend
>be gentle please i'm just a boy
Been quite rusty lately so just got a new sketchbook, really nice to use graphite and charcoal again, enjoyed doing this one even if its not as good as I would like.
just inking this now, finished Dropsy today and it inspired me i think
Working on this as practice to familiarize myself with painting in Photoshop.
I'm in the process, coming out of a very long hiatus. ( 2 years ) without using a single tool
just did this thing
I'll end up checking back tomorrow, my architecture and backgrounding in general need helping out so tell me whats wrong.
last thing for the day
I'll post this if anyone gives two shits to: patreon.com/therealbenjikins
lol nah you can pretty much see that I stopped giving two shits halfway through.
I just wanted to get the basic shit down and after I get some criticism I'll go over the blue with black correcting as I go.
I made some rey fanart for a weekly challenge.
I need help, it doesnt convince me.
Any pointers? about painting?
Hello friends. I'm trying new methods for coloring skin-- which involves more color use and so far I'm REALLY liking the results. Anyway, please let me know what I'm doing incorrectly for this thing so far.
Her neck bugs me but I'm not certain why.
Could somebody help me understand what's going on with the leg muscles? I can see other contours in the photo, but I couldn't quite figure out how they form.
Drew both of them when I was in my classes, just got back from one of them so it counts. David Bowie was from last week, Freddie was today.
Just some doodles. No references. Killing time. Just working on some fundamentals but lazily
Keep going, bro. You're doing alright so far. Just make sure you set a proper lightsource further down the road. Right now the lighting looks vague as shit with the lighting on the beads coming from below while the highlights on her chin and lips would suggest the light is coming from above.
yeah im trying to figure out a palette that i like and a light source. Still very rough tho. Complex pieces confuse the shit outta me
A work in progress. Trying to practice getting gud with digital art since I recently got this wacom tablet. Proportions are really off right now and I don't feel like fixing them today so I'm probably gonna call it a night.
Im a actually drawing this right now.
Concept for a character for some story i want to do, they're a doll possibly gonna be semi organic and semi artificial.
sketching some faces, dont have any goods idea of what 2 draw today, I cant really understand myself, some times I do really good faces and sometimes they just look so wrong, my dream is making them right everytime
just finished this page working and on a new page now.
The knees are bending weird (especially for the direction the feet are facing)
The waste and hips are weird. Hips are too wide and far down when comparing to the span of the shoulders.
Her right hand is missing a wrist and the left arm is a noodle
Finally hammered down the front design of this character. Now I need to do a turnaround.
Sry im a complet ghost when it comes to sharing my artwork, I only share it here
First doodles of my new quest to learn how to draw + very first Loomis face there in the distance.
In other words, crap.
trying to shit out a still life before the sun rises, working on picking color and values
Sketched some ships while having my coffee.
Digging the designs, also the witch hat should be lower, it looks like it's floating. Guess you wanted to show her face tho.
Pretty decent body proportions here and there, those faces though..they look too elongated. I suggest trying to draw the whole figure, I found it more helpful than just doing areas you might feel you have problems with.
Tried to do a more sketchy render compared to usual and I can't say I'm happy with the result, will need to work more on that to put better looking sketches.
I'm experimenting with brushes, does anyone know what those dark bands are? they show up in the same places no matter where I start drawing. Are they due to the texture of the brush?
Trying out different shading and line styles.
I always forget to post in these threads, so I'm finally doing it now
Here's a sketch I did a few days ago and I blocked in the colors,
Here's the final version which I did over the past few hours. Wasn't originally going to try to a do a watercolor look but I wanted to give it a shot.
I did it in Paint Tool SAI, though you could do it in Photoshop. The two main things are the brush and layers. I use some brush pack I downloaded from DeviantArt that had a watercolor brush, but a basic brush with the Spread shape would work fine. Use that to make sure the edges are random, which gives it the bleed effect you see in watercolors.
For layers, make every color its own layer and don't overlap. Not only does this give you the nice little white bits between colors, it will make sure each color has its own 'edge'. Try to get an overall even tone in your colors, but you want some darker spots and lighter spots so don't worry about making it smooth. If you want to be really good you could try to do a little shading in it but I didn't bother.
In SAI, I used the Fringe effect on every color layer (width: 5, opacity:~40%), in Photoshop it's Filter>Sharpen>Unsharp Mask. This gives the dark edges to all of the colors. If they overlap, you'll miss out on some of these edges.
I then just used a pretty simple dark black-ish brush for the lines, trying to define edges that I didn't do with the color. In the end, I brought it in to Photoshop and overlayed a noise layer (which was to give it a slight texture) and did an overall sharpen filter. That's about it. It was my first time doing it and I did a lot of messing around so I would say to do the same. Just experiment.
First time constructing a body in 2-point perspective. Very hard to do gesture atm with this and my lack of knowledge in anatomy is also kinda hindering my constructional method.
if everyone would tripfag, there would be less fights, but if no one would trip fag, there would also be less fights.
This is the knowledge i choose to pass on, in the catch-22 format.
This time painting some shit
I'm not sure if that's exactly a catch 22. In any case this is what I drew most recently.
Oh yeah, I know all too well, my faces have actually gotten worse since my drawing has slowed down now that school has started up again, I used to do really good faces really quickly.
Anywho, I've decided to do gesture driving for the rest of my sketchbook, since motion hasn't been very good with me EVER.
took a tad longer than an hour but it have musta been around that timeframe
Wouldn't mind some critique. What should I try next?
It's cool you did this all in pen. But honestly your forms are all over the place. The rockface is very confusing as to how the rocks are shaped as well as where the light is hitting it. Don't be afraid to go back over it to distinguish the darker areas, and maybe do some extra lines to help define what parts of the rock are shaped like. You only have three values right now, add about two more to make it more dynamic
thanks for the feedback. i was drawing this as the shadow was changing over the rock, so it got a little screwed up for me to do accurately. what would you suggest for other values to make it more dynamic? maybe pure black?
and yea agreed on the rocks. it was too complicated for me. maybe i should have simplified it to make it look better.
I don't mind advice, but I resent the implication that I'm obligated to take it, and if I don't take it, it's an insult to the person who gave it.
>you're probably at 20% of my level?
yeah I'm not interested in stroking his ego.
Just ignore the ego shit and focus on taking the advice instead of jumping to the defensive. You need improvement whether you want to hear that or not. Everyone does including that anon
I didn't jump to the defensive. I ignored him, and he resented that I wasn't giving him the attention he wanted.
Also I always run my work past other artists to get their opinion, but it doesn't mean I always do what they say. To expect that is absurd.
But if I say I did raise her mouth, and didn't like the way it looked, that just makes me look defensive and "muh style" so whatever, I can't win.
Anyway, Nose Bro proved he's blind with that "cringe" thread he started. Anything he says after that is highly suspect.
Well Id suggest throwing down some deep backs in the areas that are truly dark. The cave can be darker, so it has more contrast to the well lit rocks on top. For right now I'd put in an imaginary light source depending on what works best for your piece so its a little easier to find out your forms and where the shadows will fall. Plus a little crosshatching in some areas could help it pop out.
first digital art, didn't use reference, don't know how to feel about it ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
Learning to draw clothes, any tips would be appreciated
Ears are shit, I'm assuming they're not finished. Fix them and make her hair come from a line on her head, not in weird waves like that. Widow's peak is okay but those waves look wrong. The rendering isn't total shit; good job limiting use of soft brushes.
Working on a sketch but cant decide on which of these two poses to go with, any advice? also are there any obvious anatomy errors i have missed?
This is pretty narcissistic, are you Kr0n? Oh no wait, he has appreciation for other people's art. Did you know there's such a thing as character design? You changing the proportions of the face here didn't do anything except make the character look generic. The other one had hints of an ethnicity other than white, and her tall head would look good on a tall skinny body, whereas yours would go on a child's body. You didn't objectively improve anything you just made it a different character that appeals to you. There are things that could make OP's a more solid drawing, but I could redraw the girl using the original design and proportions while fixing that stuff without making it look like an entirely different person. If that's all you have to offer, you really have no place getting mad they ignored you.
couple things: post your work
Standard model is better to learn
Yes i objectively made it better because her eyes are a literal gore
hes not making choices, hes being bad and accidentally emulating ethnic people. might as well tell em off for not fixing the symbol drawn jewelry, removing the accidental downward tilt and not fixing the shitty mouth, eyebrow,hair, anatomy.
Personally I would go with the first one. Has more stability. Also try to bring some dynamic to her right arm. It looks a bit stiff.
Random sketch and kind of perpective study.
I'll take "What is Narcissistic personality disorder?" for $600
He might be stumbling onto a different look than he intended but you can't prove that. I'm not saying his drawing is without flaws but it's not wrong just because it doesn't look like a little white girl. Even if he means for her to look white, she's clearly not meant to look like a child. I don't see how you can honestly believe you actually corrected anything here, it's a completely subjective surface change that adds nothing. That other post was someone else marveling at your ego.
>lift her mouth, reduce eye size, add eyelids
are you saying any of these 3 mods were wrong?
I think its great that you chose a picture which more closely resembles mines than his to prove a point.
I'm saying the mods were pointless because it wasn't "wrong" in the first place and modding them didn't make it any more right it just made it look like a different person. If you wanted to do an actual correction, you could have pointed out some of the ways they could have added form to the face or told them the eyes are misaligned. But the proportions weren't necessarily wrong, they just didn't look like the face you thought they should look like. The model you posted here also looks nothing at all like your supposed correction. It's also not a valid critique to tell someone they can't go for a stylized look with their character and give them big eyes if they want to. Yes there is a way to do big eyes and make them look right. Pulling it back towards a "standard" realistic face and shaving about 10 years off of them isn't a correction it's just you superimposing your preference on someone to feed your already vastly overblown ego.
Im not the guy who first called you a narcissist, I just chimed in with the pic in agreement. It true that being a pure unadulterated narcissist wouldn't de-validate anything, and there are indeed flaws with the poster's artwork. However, from the way you about stating these, it is clear that you not only consider yourself above him (not a problem if you actually are) but that you also have contempt for those you see not as skilled as you. This mix of anger and disgust at those that don't measure up to your standards, especially in trivial matters, is classic to the narcissist. As is self justification when it is you that is not measuring up.
Did you have a mismatched parent child relationship? Were your parents either emotionally neglectful and critical, forcing you to develop this behavior as a defense? or alternatively were the excessively pampering ans sheltering of you, turning you into a spoiled little shit?
the photo was to mention the slight distortion in your picture.
ill have to give up arguing with you, because we have reached a point at which undoing a false claims takes vastly more time than actually saying said false claim. youre giving the guy an overwhelming benefit of the doubt and im not.The supposed youth you brought up his just due to me saving strokes/times. But whatever, his style is unique so ill make sure to bother him every post since itll be easy to spot.
neither, but im glad we have some makeshift psychologist to take care of me when i go ballistic.
im only being mean because of the response. he gave me when i told him he didnt care for others opinions. If that is the case, no point in posting really.
I'm not giving him any credit because we can't know for sure what he envisioned the character to look like and how much of what he drew was intentional or a mistake. I've said repeatedly there is much that could have been done to improve it as a drawing, and even as a design. What you did was neither. You didn't even align the eyes for fuck's sake, the one correction you could have made if you were going to bother. If you're going to try to help people, that's one thing. If you're going to be a baby and whine at people when they decide to think for themselves, then you be prepared to get called out if you were spewing bs.
So what, you didn't help. And even if you did make an improvement and they don't listen to you, so what? It's advice, not an order. You made one passing comment about them ignoring you, fine. Maybe they just missed your post before and they're glad you pointed it out. You spend ten minutes arguing with them for not listening to you and lauding your "superior skill", you're being an asshole. You never pull this on FiRez and he's the king of ignoring people's advice and drawing bug eyed bitches with weird proportions. If you can let it go when he doesn't take your advice you can be a big boy about it when someone else does the same.
what the fuck do you mean, i help firez, he tries and 99% of the time its at least a bit better, i help this guy, he says WHO ARE YOU TO GIVE ME HELP AND WHY SHOULD I LISTEN RAAAAAAAAA
thats the reason im willing to invest time in arguing.
Arguing with someone who doesn't want your advice isn't an investment. And don't try to start some spiel about how you just want to help when you say something like you're probably at 20% of my level. If you want to help, try a couple of times. If they make it clear they don't agree with your advice after that let it go. Otherwise you're not giving advice, you're not interested in their growth or helping them, you're just trying to make your dig look big. Now go draw more hands, I have work to do.
Oh my god, what have I done? I am so sorry for derailing this thread, everyone. I'll try twice as hard to ignore Nose Bro next time.
>But whatever, his style is unique so ill make sure to bother him every post since itll be easy to spot.
You know Nosey, a self-aware person would realize it's THIS kind of behavior that garners a negative reaction from people.
Work in progress-ish...still want to continue the background and maybe add some tones.
I just started drawing again. Making my own characters is my favourite.
pressure only came back on the last doodle on the bottom
Character's name is Travis. From a series I've been writing.
drawing on illustrator in progress.
Picked up new Windsor Newton paints and a few of the watercolour markers they have. Just playing with a sunrise and trying to learn how the new medium behaves.
Messed up arm study. Apparently hanging arm doesn't look like spreading arm.
Just had to do another with this character. Getting faster at least, so that's good.
Having trouble on the cherry. cant find any top own refs ccw
Your forms are messed up. Go study some facial anatomy
It's quite shit. I hope this is less so
I think changing the camera angle for a more sided vision would be nice so we could see mora of the front girl, making her with a good expression can change the drawing completly, btw its your decision.
I find this pose very unnatural. You did some good like fixing the girl at the bottom sitting on the ledge instead of kneeling on her toes, so perspective is a bit better.
On the other hand I feel like you fucked up big time by changing the direction face of the top girl looks towards and the twist/position of her body.
Let's think why she is positioned like she is, or rather - why she placed her hand on bottom girl's left shoulder instead of right shoulder, cheek, chin or top of the head.
IMO narration of the piece is that the standing girl wants to leave, that they already talked about something, maybe the sitting girl stopped crying after being cheered on.
Sitting girl already starts to fade from standing girl's point of view which can be seen from the top girl's body being so far to the left. She is leaving, she held for the second, but now all is done and she begins to move out.
IMO what need fixing is not necessairly the pose of girl at the top, but the direction she is looking towards, her mouth and the grip of her hand. IMHO she should be giving sitting girl's a pat on the shoulder, the last "hold on", "it will be ok" etc. while preparing her body to move out of the cadre to the left.
I mean, if the narration is different, I don't see any justification to that fucking odd twist of top girl's body. She should be facing the other character more directly in any other case.
Thanks, it seems that it's a bit late for making that change but I will try to give a stronger sense of expression somehow.
Thanks for the thorough opinion I will need some more time to digest your feedback but I hope I can recognize the oddness that you see quite soon.
Btw that came out a lot blurrier than it really is :/
Started a beginners art class yesterday. Teach wants us to do a drawing so we can see how much shittier it looks compared to our drawings in 3 months
Rough sketch for a continuation of a previous finished drawing.
Hey /ic/ I have a question. I heard from a friend that if a person only drew in an anime or manga style long enough, that they wouldn't be able to draw in a realistic way properly anymore because their proportions would be messed up because anime and manga characters have such big heads and eyes, ect. compared to humans.
Is this sort of thing true? Cause it honestly sounds like a load of shit to me
No but if your fundamentals are shitty and you never got good at realism in the first place before deciding on 'anime', then yeah your proportions are gonna stay all kinds of fucked up.
I disagree in that I do believe if someone concentrated on exaggerated proportions too often without ever doing normal studies or even just regular drawings between, they would have trouble drawing in proportion again, but it does have a lot to do with how good the person's fundamentals were to begin with.
