Hell, some of them said that they'd watch a Scooby-Doo cartoon with this art style.

Honest? Your design is fairly generic. It doesn't really has any distinguishable features from other stock characters.
The structure only seems to work on a 2D (read: flat) surface, which it's not really beneficial for character design. I like the color palette though. Shitty design, passable palette.
I know it seems rude, but criticism is there to help you improve your art, not to bash you or make you feel like shit.

I'll give you an extremely abridged advice. Have you seen the JoJonium covers? If you read JJBA, you'll notice that the characters in the covers look radically different from their original appearances.
My method is to take a generic design and exaggerate it by applying a concept that was not there in the first place and expand upon it.

Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't, but hey, you can always find something that it wasn't there.

Also, this guy can help you with improving your art:

i'm sure some of you have gone through this maybe it's because i'm not that good at drawing but how do you overcome the "it looks right" mentality when it is clearly wrong.


like when i'm drawing the picture and lookign back and forth at it and the refrence picture i can see visually no issues, although the face not appearing right does tell me something is wrong but when i focus more on the areas i think are wrong i see the lines match up perfectly.

i'll call it drawing dysmorphia because its the same with body dysmorphia. How do back the fuck up and realize no that line is wrong when my mind is making it appear properly.

Ha! These are awesome, kinda reminds me of Toe Jam and Earl.
>>64565203
I get this a lot. A few tricks you can try is holding it up backwards to a light, or to a mirror, or flip it upside down. If it's something that has shadows, you can also try just drawing the shadow areas.
>>
>>64566602
yae i tried just shading it to figure out if i can tell then what is wrong but to no avaid. i shade by following the main lines and the underlying construction lines used to make the shape so this doesnt really help. ill try the mirror and flipping it upside down though.

also i can't draw female faces :( at least male faces i get semi right, females always come out masculine looking.

>I frequently stop after seeing how terrible I'm making it.

If you stop doing that thing, you'll be better.
>>
>>64571649

Practice isn't really enough. I mean practice is good, but you have to challenge yourself as you do. You can go to goddamn Deviant art to see evidence of that. People who are too lazy to actually improve their efforts and fix their mistakes end up stagnating. Draw things you aren't comfortable doing, things that seem out of your league. Getting good at something is about getting your mistakes out of the way and the only way to do that is to challenge yourself.

The only real way to get better is simply to strive to get better. Take what you most dislike about your own art and work on improving it. Read a tutorial, a book, watch a demonstration. Don't like how your faces are turning out? find some you do like and figure out why you like them. Can't draw hands? Practice drawing hands from photos or just draw them until they feel right.

Point is there isn't a simple or easy way, you just gotta actually have the gumption to fucking do it.
>>
>>64571649
Practice with a purpose. Think about what your art is lacking the most at the moment and then practice that. If you just "draw everyday" you'll end up practicing what's in your comfort zone eternally and probably learn bad habits and nothing else. The "draw this again" meme on deviantart is a grim reminder that artistic progression is not linear and you can easily pass into a new kind of horrible instead of actually improving if you don't use proper artbooks and such.

nice faces. Get a tablet instead of a new scanner and start drawing digitally. It will expand your horizons, especially with all the erasin you do. Not an insult. I erase a lot too, but a good drawing tablet not only makes your coordination more razor sharp, it also lets you erase infinitely without ruining pages or going through erasers.

i disagree if he already erases like a mofo the transition to digital will aggravate that condition, the key to stop erasing so much is to stop trying to make everything perfect and get some confidence in your own work, not change to a different medium that lets you do that shit forever so you never learn

If you use blue pencil for the underdrawing and graphite or ink for finished, When you scan the pic you can use Photoshop to get rid of the blue. By going to Hue/Saturation. Selecting Cyan and sliding brightness to 100 percent. Go to blue and do the same if the blue pencil doesn't completely go away.

Some Ecchi thing I drew I awhile back for a draw request that I decided to color, I don't know why. The quality of line art made not worth the effort. Lazy construction and didn't really place the figure in the scene until last second, so there's no real sense of perspective. Should of just done something abstract for the background and called it good.

I drew a rough skeleton , minus the skull and ribs, for the deer. Remember, when drawing arms, that there is not just one bone in the lower arms and below the knees. Attached to the elbow is the ulna and radius, 2 bones which actually glide over each other as you swivel your arm.

>>64590256
>I need more perspective and anatomy sketching to improve my art
not really you make it sound like a must too but take for example cartoonists, their art form is based on taking real life objects/people and simplifying them breaking them down into simple shapes that kids can easily recognise, they dont really need perspective and exact anatomy knowledge, or portrait artists for example they dont know shit (most of the time, dont mean any disrespect) but how to read negative space and copy values, so to my point of view you dont really need to know those things if you dont find them necessary.

K, everyone on here is a dick. At your drawing level they are going to just insult everything you show.

You need a few things before posting here
>Start drawing armature
>Draw faces in a way thats not symbol drawing
>Be more confident in your lines.

You need the armature/musculature the most. Just the blobby bodies you are doing right now isnt cutting it I dont think.

Then focus on confident lines, draw WHOLE lines, not sketchy segments.

Then focus on learning faces.

Like that other Anon said, always remember to have fun with what you do. I'm not always (i.e: often) satisfied with my end-product, but I still have fun with the process of drawing. Just make sure you're enjoying yourself.

>>64556256
God damn beautiful, you shining star, you.

>>64559295
1. I don't think it's a bad habit.. I think it's a good tool to use to see what works and what doesn't, as well as what you naturally like and gravitate towards. Can help point you in the "right direction", as far as a desired style goes. It just becomes a "bad" habit when all you do is ape other styles, and not try anything original.
2. It's good! Definitely gettin' the Timm vibes. You're doing good in emulating the animated series' style. The hips look a little narrow, especially given that most 'toons tend to exaggerate those features, but it's a good for a quick sketch.

>>64560294
It's not bad. It's a wee bit simple (and the image itself is a little messy and cluttered, in my opinion). Could we see a standalone image of him? And/or one with him, as compared to other characters he might co-star with?

>>64565052
Really diggin' that third sketch. A lot of fun and fluid shapes in there. As well as a lot of expression. I feel like there's already so much said about him and his personality.

>>64572565
Wicked! Though I'm having a little trouble discerning what the action is. Is he hammering or sculpting something into the ground? Nice, all the same!

>>64572718
>>64572726
>>64572731
Not bad, you definitely manage to capture the form, for the most part. I'd say that among the three of them, they're a bit too simple-featured, especially in the face, where there's a lot of negative space in comparison to the head and the clothes. It also looks like you fudged the hands a bit, particularly on the second image. But very good work! It's always fun to take stuff from real life.

...lookin' pretty rad! I feel like this is in reference to something that I'm totally lost on (something inside is saying JJBA), but it's got a rad style, all the same. Keep goin', Anon!

>>64573062
She seems to be lacking hips or any kind, but nice job on trying something different with the arms. I've got a real bad habit of "hands-on-waist", which is the easy-out method of dealing with it. The head also looks a bit big. Try forming the "skeleton" underneath, first. Then add on the meat and parts after, once the anatomy itself looks wholesome.

>>64573159
I hear ya on that. Seems like most everyone in person will sugar coat it, minus actual art teachers.
It's looking good! A lot of savage points with the hair, I like it. Take a jab at those hands, whether you feel ready or not. I'm posting a picture, and hopefully it's of some use. The face is a little lacking of features, but I'm getting vibes this may be a monster (or a rock star) or some kind. Any back story on this?

>>64574567
Glad to see the Godzilla train hasn't stopped.

>>64575888
Lookin' good, but the skin tone on the human character blends in a bit too much into the background. I know that's an issue when doing monochrome-type stuff, but try working your comic in gray scale, first. It'll help loads.

>>64576681
Very expressive faces in those middle panels, I like it! The last panel is a bit off, though. I'm having trouble pin-pointing it, but I think it might be her neck or the pose itself looking a bit off-balance. Sorry I can't be more specific.

>>64577557
Very good! Some strong foundations there, Anon. And bonus points for the source-material. The front right kneecap looks a little inverted, but then again...maybe I'm just really bad at judging perspective and/or poses mid-stride. Very strong work, though.
>>
>>64578173
Not bad! The jaw on the gal in the top-left seems a bit too "strong", if that makes sense. And you could use some work on constructing faces in general, but nice work, all the same. You certainly stepped out of the box, as far as poses and composition goes.

>>64579656
>>64579984
I think it's a matter of what you allow yourself to get away with. I try a blend of both, with emphasis on traditional, when/if I'm doing studies. That way you learn to appreciate what a computer allows you to do, while disciplining yourself, as to not have to rely on that kind of stuff.
tl;dr, I guess just don't overindulge on the features a computer offers you.

>>64580406
I think I see the same problem in this, as the green-colored one you posted before. Too many of the colors and shades end up getting cluttered with the background, the second panel in particular (and, to a slight degree, the fifth). Aside from that, I don't see a lot of change or expression between characters. Nice work regardless, though. Takes a lot of mojo to get a comic done!

>>64581075
Cool! Well done with your choice and use of colors. I think some bits of lighting are a little off (his ear stands out the most, when it should be shaded more, due to the light source).

>>64581175
You bastard. You MUST'VE known that I'm a HUGE sucker for knight characters. You better post more.
Though in all seriousness, your picture isn't quite a lot to work with, critique-wise. Definitely enough lines to tell what's happening, so that's going on, though. My interest is piqued!

>>64581738
Cool stuff and a neat style! Definitely getting a "Gravity Falls" vibe. Please, please, please don't use net-speak like "lol" or "ur" in the finished product, though. I beg of thee.
I think a tablet is a worthwhile investment, even a cheap, 100-200 dollar one. Specifically, I think it's worth doing pencils in traditional, scanning, then trying to ink digitally. It can really amp up the quality of a work.

NSFW-ish stuff isn't exactly my forte, but a few things: you probably shouldn't be able to see the nip on the side of the boob like that. Unless it's really starting to drift from the side. Also, the head looks a little flat, especially since she's kind of looking over the shoulder. I know it's kinda tricky, but try moving the "peak" of her hair towards that right and getting some more perspective in there. Good work, though! And nice work, putting in a background. Not something you see often in posted works, including mine.

>>64586238
Oh, nice! You can definitely see improvement. Excellent work, Anon. You're on the right track! I dunno if I asked last time, but do you post your work somewhere?

>>64588788
Nice work! You can definitely see those studies pulling through for you. A lot of expression and some nice, smooth shading. Keep it up!

>>64589364
What is dead may never die, Anon.

>>64589575
There's a little too little (derp) to give strong critique, given how sketchy it is. But from what I can gather, try being more confident with your lines, shrinking the torso (it's VERY long) and adding more form to the limbs. I'd suggest basic drawing lessons, stuff like learning proportions, anatomy, construction, etc. Take it slow, but build yourself from the bottom up. Visit the sticky in /ic/, they have some great stuff for people of all skill levels. Don't lose steam!

>>64589852
I use Clip Studio Paint. It's only $50 and is more geared for drawing than Photoshop is. The brushes can leave a little to be desired, sometimes, but some clever tweaking of settings can help that out a lot.

>>64590256
Cute! Simple, but those two go hand-in-hand, most times. I'm not seeing any glaring issues with perspective or anatomy, myself. Perhaps the hands could use a little more detail/form, but at the same time, it seems to be your intended style for them (I assume it's 'cause you're emulating hooves).

Bats is surely pleased. It looks very nice! I think my only gripe is that the lower half (as in, from the hips, down) seems a bit off-center/balance. Moving them to be more centered would really make the pose look a lot more solid and forceful, I think. Imagine Dredd as something like a pillar.

>>64592183

>>64592276
You crazy son of a bitch. You're a special brand of amazing.

>>64592933
Cool! Keep up the studies. Remember to reference from real life and do dedicated studies. The shading seems a little too strong on the lower brow (where the bridge of the nose meets the forehead), making it looks like it recedes farther into the face than it should. But a strong work, anyhow. I might also suggest softer colors and blending, especially when doing lighting. Keep it up!

Man, when you start drawing seriously, you start to realize that humans have huge-ass heads.

>>64606647

Try drawing standing up on an easel, if possible. Otherwise, try drawing larger.

If you don't have access to an easel and you don't want to invest in large paper (like the cheapass that I am), fill sheets and sheets of paper with circles, ovals and lines across the page, trying to use your arm most of the time.

It will take some getting used to, but a large part of it is just getting it to work for you.

I had to Google the name. You're definitely managing to capture that style of his! Final Fantasy is actually what I thought of first, when I saw your image, but I assumed the style was gonna be in reference to something like JJBA, since it's the popular thing right now. Keep kickin' ass, Anon!

>>64605389
It's not utterly featureless, just could probably stand to have more detail in it, I'd say. But don't completely change your approach, just on my critique. I wanna see more stuff from you, though! Keep it up!

>>64605881
Damn. Okay, I think you said that before. Dayum shame, friendo.

>>64606502
I'd warn against an art dump, just since it defeats the purpose of the thread (new/recent works), but it would be cool to see some comparison images. Try taking one of the old ones and put it along side something new you do!

What learning resources would /co/ reccomend for drawing and cartooning and stuff at a very basic level?

Also, aside from line paper and a pen, I have an android tablet and a stylus with a squishy touch screen pad on it. What apps can I use that can give me the most out of this?

/co/, how would one activate their imagination? I've been doing a ton of studies and gestures for four years, but I'm still not feeling it. Do I decrease the frequency of them?
>>
>>64607434
>>64607442
It's in the Fantasy ballpark, therefore I love it. Your coloring isn't bad, but I think you could stand to brush up on it a little. If that image is at night (as I assume it is, from the sky), you'll wanna desaturate everything a little and lean towards the blue/gray area on the color wheel. Basically, there's just a lot of flatness to your colors. But that's fine! We were all there, at one point. Just do some studies, observe how lighting affects colors in real life and go from there. /ic/ has some tutorials and articles in their sticky.
Beyond your colors, your lines need a bit of work. There's not a lot of variation in them and, in my opinion, I'd lay off the binary tools, but it's nothing that some experimentation with other brushes couldn't help you solve.

You're doing great though, Anon. Certainly better than me. I've been sitting on my webcomic concept for almost a year now, so high five yourself for me, knowing that you're leagues ahead a lot of the people (like me) who post in the webcomic threads.

>>64610559
The sticky on /ic/. Seriously, it's a wonderful collection of information. Even for cartooning.

This isn't really new, but a while ago, I came across an older sketch I had made in one of my dad's notebooks, and decided to redo it.

I use music but it helps a lot if it is a soundtrack from a movie you really liked, this way its easier to imagine a scene with a deeper feeling behind it.

>>64610605
Right music for the desired mood, dark room/sleepmask. Then I imagine what I want to draw like a scene from a movie, "press stop" when I'm at the right "frame" and try to bring that on the paper/screen.

SU-fag here,

Fun fact, I was just finished with sketches of Gustav Klimt-inspired waifu smut, with all the erotic poses and everything. My waifu was so sexy when I sketched her drunk off my ass every night.

Yet, it truly is the next step to becoming a full fledged drawfag when you start dressing your characters this time. It's like... your art now gives eye boners instead of penis boners.

This is why I hate vacations that go on longer than 3-4 days.
>>
>>64614127
Cause hipster mentality. But as >>64614436 said, I enjoy doing traditional art over digital; however I like doing digital painting as well I am not great at it though but still. I think it is also because some people think that certain artist choose digital because it is easier. Some do though, but not everyone believes that. In conclusion, there is benefits in digital art, and disadvantages in traditional art Hell digital saves me some money in getting new sketchbooks

>>64614608
Also draw, even on vacations. Even when I don't have a scheduled task, or on a break, draw a quick sketch of something. Nothing strenuous though.

I'm sure it exists in some form somewhere, but I couldn't give an example. There was that crazy Chinese guy that built a mansion on top of a regular apartment building, without getting it approved by the building code people. Last I heard they were trying to make him tear it down.

You should loosen it up a little. As it is now it just feels weird next to the hard black shading. Also, think about how you place the lines when hatching to create texture and volume.

And as always. Do more figure drawing. The anatomy needs work.

An adventure game I'm attempting to make for Halloween. I doubt I'll finish it, but if I ram my head at the wall enough times eventually I'll find a door, or make one.

Here's my not so appealing programmer art.

Currently I'm messing around with the path finding for the character the player controls. You switch between three characters with different abilities and you use them to solve puzzles.

The setup is that the kids have a little ghost boy as a friend, and they want to go trick-or-treating with him. However, even though Halloween is the one night when ghosts can be free from their respective places of haunting, year after year the little ghost boy never leaves. The kids then decide to try and find out why he's so opposed to leaving, and this requires them to find out why he died in the first place.

It's fairly short, but still requires quite a bit of work. I'd be happy just to end up with some nice looking models by Halloween though.

Belly button's too close to the center of her torso. Since she's in 3/4 view it should be located more to the right of where it is now. I think that's what's throwing things off.

I actually made her chunkier as I felt it better fit her character: She's kind of goofy and tends to be on the receiving end of slapstick. I found making her heavier emphasized the fact that she's sort of assertive and doesn't give a shit.

The disinterested rocker girl mantel ended up being sort of taken over by another character.

Both of the judges are pretty appealing, and their personalities are pretty well conveyed through the styles in which they're drawn. My one gripe is the shading on the female judge. You (like me and many other male artists) seem to be lacking refined knowledge in the field of exactly what boobs do. Get that checked out.

As for the other ones, you left some of the guiding lines on your little Dobson. The singer looks a little bit too similar to the male judge. I really like the design on Villainousington, but the placement and size of his features seem to vary from picture to picture; though since you're going into Flash, you'll rarely be without references.

>>64628635
JMD needs to break out of his comfort zone, though. If it's not a girl with bodacious hips, his stuff looks a little "blegh". Not that I could do better, but he definitely needs to draw more varied material

The plot of the short is that it's the final casting call for an animated feature film, and all kinds of crazy characters are auditioning. I'm toying around with some cameos, though I don't think I'll put Dobby in the final product.

On the one hand he doesn't 'need' to because people come to him for that. On the other hand though, I think he still feels the drive to grow because I've seen him say that a couple of times and draw some different stuff lately.

True. Nobody NEEDS to do anything. But I just feel that he should to build himself a bit more. Just because you draw babes decently doesn't mean you could/should draw them all the time. I'm sure he still feels drive, too. I also understand that he's been drawing smutty stuff lately 'cause he needs that sweet commission money, but aside from, his non-human and/or non-female drawings could really benefit from more work.
He's good, but needs to improve on things, just like the rest of us.
He should work more on that setting with the lizard and cactus people. That looked interesting as fuck.

He's charging way too little for those commissions, too. Might as well be prostituting himself.

thanks! i had a bunch of formal education towards it but the style wasn't really a conscious choice. i admire a lot of kinds of art too, so if i had to say anything about the way i draw, it's as if my style makes fun of cartoons while making fun of anime while making fun of real life.

Damn. I also have lost older sketchbooks. I'd probably be reviled at their contents, by this point in time, but it'd still be nice to have them. Keep working, Anon. Build a new collection!
I used to make comics about Kirby in 7-8th grade, as a joke among me and my friends. They were super shitty, but I made the mistake of throwing them out at some point. I kinda regret it.

>>64615696

I wish I could help more, but all I got to suggest is using some reference pictures and see how that helps you. Perhaps images of a dancer or summat, since they're a bit more 'cat-like' in their builds, on average?

>>64624901
Very nice improvements! I don't have any qualms with the lady on the right, but her outfit is a bit plain, compared to the fella next to her. Perhaps a little more work would benefit her. Excellent improvement, though!

Respectable work, Anon. I need to practice storyboard work and all that, since it's something I've considered as a career. But I wouldn't even know where to start. I've had little-to-no experience in animation. Any suggestions?

The fella(?) on the left definitely leaves a lot to be desired, even when/if he'd be in motion. And it's especially perturbing, compared to the lady on the right. I'd' change one or the other, at the least.

Used to play. Eventually got tired of the timesink. And Blizzard's money-grubbery. That's lookin' slick as hell, though. Honestly, I already feel that I won't be able to tell the difference between canon artwork and your image, once it's done. (That's a compliment!)

>>64632255
No problem! I feel like that in a way, that style you gravitate towards isn't directly what you 'want', so much as a conglomerative result of studies and influences. And yours is a wonderful one. It's pleasing to so many of the senses.

Personally I think you'd do just as well by sticking with traditional media. That comic page is pretty tight.

Like >>64599843 says, going digital can make your inks look cleaner and smoother- and you can insta-fix things but..
Well, hell, you have a pretty good page set up as it is. You would want to probably clean things up a little sharper, and a tablet would in fact help with that, but it's not entirely necessary. One of the lovelier comics I've read is traditional media, with clean ups done digitally as needed.
Plus, there -will- be a slight learning curve, adjusting to a tablet when you're used to traditional. If you want to go ahead and start your comic, I'd go ahead and do it traditionally.

Maybe invest in some fancier pens, first. The sketch looks part Bic (and god knows I love Bic pens, but good pens make much cleaner lines) and I'm not sure if that's pen or pencil on the comic page. Give a brush pen a shot, maybe a micron, see what you like. Faber-Castells are my favorite, but I still wanna learn how to brush ink.
>>
>>64632902
I've still managed to avoid seeing any individual work Shadman has ever done. Is that noteworthy or is it sad? 'cause I feel like with the rap he gets, it could be either one.
I just need to step up my art game. My next big step is having art of a quality that's WORTH paying for. I'd want someone to look at what I do and think "Yeah, this guy is worth $15."

...but sadly, I'm not close enough to that goal, I think. But I'll get there. Someday...

christ dude this is hella detailed. I'm really impressed by your perspective and everything but I gotta say you could probably get away with about half of the work I'm sure you put in and still get a great city shot.

I'd highly recommend checking out Milo Milogiannis or Sean Murphy's skylines and check out Sean's demos he did a couple years back on youtube. He's got a great bit on doing city shots and such and I think it could really help cut your time down.

It's honestly super amazing still but I just figured I'd throw in my two cents. Sometimes progress is doing the same faster and all that nonsense, ya know.
>>
>>64634535
lol No I mean, 'you' the anon who does the full thread commenting, and drew the moogle from yesterday. Also Shutter had said something about trying out at an animation studio to become a bg artist, I wonder how that went. Anyway as I said, you're not far off, imo, it'll just take a bit more practice.

Yes, sensei. The 'younger, more talented' artist thing has already started being an issue for me. I'm starting to see 18-20 year olds with loads more skill than me and it freaks me out. Makes me wonder what the fuck I've been doing with myself. Which, I guess, is nothing.

>>64635103
It might be the 'easy way out', but try giving his face the resemblance of a helmet. The other designs made him look more barbaric and brutish, rather than knightly. Aside from, it doesn't look like you need much work on it. Seems like you have a pretty good grasp on how to build characters and forms with shapes, which is awesome. Also, perhaps a shield? Seems like fantasy culture nowadays closely correlates knightly designs with a sword/shield combo. You could always try going that route.
God damn, I'm a sucker for fantasy stuff.

that's ok. i've had a really weird couple of years so i'm used to kind of telling my life story to people. i won't go too into details though.

last year i got hired at an outdoor store, but late that year/early this year i made the transition into the gun department there. it's opened some doors for me; occasionally i get paid to get to gun shows and make designs for a separate dealer. i don't exactly make killer wages but it's been the most gratifying and rewarding set of jobs i've held in my life so far, so i'm going to try to take it as far as i can.

that's not to say i don't make time for drawing but it's safe to say a lot of what i do off the clock involves what i do for a living now, if it isn't already evident in the drawings i make, lol.

>I wouldn't be so nosy normally, but it's actually a bit of a crisis I've had with myself lately. I feel worried that I should just leave art as a hobby and not as a career choice. But the problem is, I have trouble imagining myself being happy doing much else.
it might not be true for others out there, so take this with a grain of salt (or maybe even the whole shaker if you want)

you have to really, really, really want to do it to be successful. a lot of great artists i've personally known (some have passed as well) were pretty much penniless their whole lives, while others (some arguably less motivated and talented than the next) made pretty good bank on the merits of simply knowing somebody who knew somebody who knew somebody to get an in at some cushy gig to make bank. if you want to make it, DON'T give up and NEVER stop seeking out new knowledge.

the best advice i can really give you actually came from a bit of firearm instruction: always keep an open mind. don't be too rigid and always think adaptively!

Thanks, man. That comment actually means a lot to me.
But, yeah. You're right about the helmeted head designs, though I like the cute skull-like head I have in the preliminary design.
The one in the lower left is probably the most knightly of the lot I sketched out, with the tabard and such.
I'm not too hot about the shield idea, since in my mind a warforged can tank most damage, but I'll see how it works. It seems like a good opportunity to get some interesting designs out there.

Cool. Thanks for sharing, friend. It's hard wrestling with those kind of doubts, especially since it's approaching time for me to start applying for transfers to other colleges and stuff. I've had a lot of debate on whether I should put myself in debt or not. And if I do, if it should be for a degree in Art.
Thanks for the advice, though! I think I've already committed too much to go back now, but if things don't work out once I have a degree, oh well. I'll still be pretty young by that point and I can figure it out then.

Dayum. Gettin' major "Ripley from Alien" vibes. You really know when to apply detail, and where to not. There's always somewhere for my eye to travel in your images.

>>64636048
Solid attempt, Anon! And bravo for wanting to try a more dynamic pose (Lord knows I need to work on that, too). Nice job on the braids, but the middle of the torso and the area around the right leg are looking cluttered together. Maybe think of moving the braid somewhere else, next draft.
Just keep working at it and use references and you'll be able to nail stuff like this easy. Keep it up, Anon!

>>64641764
No problem, friend! A lot of people KNOW to use shapes in their construction, but it's not as common to see someone who knows HOW to use them. All my suggestions were a bit 'cop out-ish', though. Go with what you feel looks good, and any gaps in the knightly demeanor can be bridged by things like dialogue, situations, and setting. And don't sweat the shield-thing too much. Keep his design as is. There's other ways to visually express knighthood. Try something less overbearing on the design, like a cape or some sort of insignia on the tabard. If you're thinking of something a little goofy, too, you could always make that standard "knight plume" just come right out from his head, but that might look a bit silly.

You've probably heard that, yeah. And to some extent, there's a bit of truth in it. But school isn't for everyone. Conversely, you learn techniques, make connections, and develop management skills that you otherwise wouldn't outside of school. Or at least you do at a faster rate than you might develop them on your own.

Me personally, I'm going to school because I tend to have a low amount of willpower and need the curriculum and knowledge to keep me going, otherwise I tend to stagnate.
Also, (I learned this from a professional I talked to, while she visited my class last semester. I ain't makin' this up) if you ever want a higher position with a place at, like, Disney or some big-wig company, you still need a degree. It's an industry standard for some/most elevated positions to require a degree. It could be a degree in Women's Studies, but they still require a degree.

Oh junk, dawg. That looks awesome. I don't really have much else to say, honestly. It looks great, though!

Oop. Yeah, seeing your ref, that makes a lot of sense. Disregard me! Carry on!
...but you're welcome. I try to be as constructive as possible. Even if half the advice I put out there ends up being moot.

Oh it's fine, it's the trouble with working with obscure characters. I'll probably need your adcive on hands and feet soon enough though...

And here's another one I'll do again too.
