Perhaps like one of his French women?
Sorry had to
Are you drawing people? Is it possible someone on here could draw me as a mermaid, please?
Lol, good one cx
May I submit my own picture? Anyones invited to draw if they like no worries tho<3
left all my fucking pencils a the university, all i had left was this shitty fat marker i m not used to work with ... if i get my hand on a pencil today i ll redo it
Was great last time. Appreciated if anyone could draw this.
First time drawing a person in my adult life.
I don't even know.
>looks nothing like the actual girl
It could use a touch up.
i've tried to make the pose more interesting but gave up halfway
someone please draw me! I have never been drawn before!
award for most hilarious picture in thread
Benedict Cumberbatch style portraits holy shit.
That, and not lean into a shadow so as to cover up the texture and features.
From the side at a bit of an angle to show your collar/hips, sitting on your feet, with your arms behind holding you up. If you can get good lighting from above it would accentuate your mid-section and arms.
It's not so bad for most of them this thread. Still getting used to clothing, the fine point between lines and shading get a little lost on me with it. How long have you been drawing?
Elf girl request from the previous thread. Gonna post it in a sec here
I think it started with crayons, I was never good with those, nobody gave me a gold star for- no that's just silly. I started doing stuff like these in High school. So about 7 years.
Haha, damn they weren't hooking the preschoolers up with charcoal? That explains your consistent style then.
5 years about, but due to drinking and drugs my hands weren't steady enough to pick back up for a couple years or so til last month so I'm trying to play catch up with you guys.
so, just a quickie outline before bed. I imagine I'm going to overdo it like that one pic you gave us of you in the red and black bustier.
Hi guys, I'm back. I might draw some people later.
I already drew you in the last thread bro.
did you in the last thread aswell .. still no pencils :/ tried this anyway
Thom here, thank you!
Agh he probably just had indigestion and ran out of tums.
How far along is that yet? All my stuff is scattered through notebooks and school documents.
You're stunning and deserved better, sorry
Oh, shit, I didn't see it. Cool! Thanks, man!
Working with a new medium and style, sorry if it comes out a little odd! Almost there
So much talent on this thread, I hope someone could draw me too~
im gonna be posting a couple process shots because this is a good pose and everyone should learn from this picture
first step is to do the underlying sketch
here i have gone ahead and filled in some basic values as well
note that the color doesn't really matter here... just looking for contrasts between light and dark
note how i'm not tracing but measuring by eye
all work done in photoshop on a microsoft surface pro 3
second step is to block in the colors
before i start putting anything down, i pick out a few basic colors. you should do this from the color picker by eye to be a ~pro master~ but the eye dropper is useful for quick studies etc
i set aside a light, medium, and dark tone and lay in the dark tone first. i'm using a fairly small brush with 85% opacity for this step. i like high opacity for blocking in steps so i can really push the dimensionality of the drawing.
i worked from dark to light values here, accenting areas of a pinker hue with my pink tone that i picked out earlier. there are distinct areas of the pose that are much lighter (chest, breasts, top of the leg) and if you look closely, have a slightly different hue as well.
here is where it starts to get muddy, and there are a lot of different approaches to this step
the blending and highlighting and shading
i'm fairly new at using digital media, and i dont have any great photoshop brushes or anything so blending is not my forte...
here i'm using just a bunch of different colors to layer and try to smooth out the colors. some areas are more successful, some are not. im not trying to bust out a 100 percent naturalistic piece for this thread, so i gave it a pretty loose pass. here it is with the sketch layered underneath it still.
here is a comparison between the finished w/ underdrawing and without
now obviously it can be refined from here infinitely, but i like the way it looks here. i'm calling it a finished piece.... 4chan quality anyway hahahah
hope you guys found this interesting. i am by no means anywhere close to mastering this medium (or any medium really) but threads like these are super fun to practice on.
It's the same drawing, right?
The difference is noticeable, I prefer this version of it though
I think he over-complicated what was meant to be a training exercise and ended up with a convoluted drawing/guide. Less is more, or so they say
