Work on your art.
Leave some work, leave a comment, don't have any work? Well get some paper and draw something!
This is my oc Oma, Oma Exon.
Which ver. of her is better, the redux or the current?
umm.. studies... yes i am studying her anatomy..
Tried texturing my draw from last thread. I can never tell if I sized this right though until I post them.
Requesting that you work on your art some more.
Really though, of what? Anything? Do me an interior shot, nothing to detailed, of a tiny, one bed-room apartment. Try and put a cyberpunk, dystopian-future spin on it.
I use Manga Studio so there's textures built in. I just added gray value and converted it to dots.
Playing around with lighting and framing.
Working on one of my main weakness - light sources.
Pic is my last attempt, I think that I was fairly good, until I reached the middle of the torso...them it kind of turned intoa trainweck.
Anyone have tips on how to deal with it?
I want to make a robot, but as you can see, it's uh. Not quite working. Thinking of removing that arm altogether, though I did get an idea for making a spine.
the fundamentals usually apply to everything. are you actually reading the lessons though? or submitting your stuff for critique? or are you just skimming them and doing whatever you like
Venomous High class Sadistic Scorpion lady.
Really consider where your light source is. It seems to be at the top left of the picture based on her hair but it starts to get lost as the body continues downwards. Good figure/form though.
I hate myself. did this last/ maybe two weeks ago? i fucking suck, been in a slump
i do read lessons, trying to understand as much as i can, but i don't submit stuff to critique.
you probably will say "but you should". i really need to work on my discipline.
...goddamn, my lamp just fell!
the main thing i see that you should be doing differently is that you're not ghosting your lines, or really thinking all that much before you draw them. don't jump into drawing before thinking about the mark you're putting down.
lesson 1's got a whole 3 step breakdown of the mark-making process, you should go reread it, it's pretty damn important
Regarding the light source, its coming from the above and the left, I think that my problem is that I lost which areas would be under the light, and which wouldnt.
I kept shading it, and it went all over the place.
Reigning Regnant of the Marsh Lands and his council men.
Folds and hands still confuse me.
pls no bully but harsh critique is fine.
Me attempting to experiment new style.
I don't know if I liked it that much, but you be the judge, /co/.
Trying to get some stuff in before I leave my cave today.
Am I good enough to start a comic /co/
Hey fuck you pal, ok then "would /co/ read a comic that looked like this"
Concept art for a comic tournament I am in.
Hullo Batman thread I was kindly directed over here from the draw general anyway.
Been on a huge Agent Chase x Iris and Will Vandom x Susan Vandom and been practicing in the hopes of one day getting into lewds.
I am not satisfied with either Susan Vandom or Iris so I figure more practice on those two than work on more suggestive poses and once I reach a level of consistency I'm comfortable with lewds! Cause who doesn't like lewds.
people will read things with far worse art if the plot is good enough.
but this face is not very aesthetically pleasing for me, it has a little bit of a squirrel girl vibe to it, which is not very good looking, maybe you should give a look on the proportion and placement of the features.
I should also mention that I used this as a reference for Will.<<<
And a more realistic sketch by Andrew Loomis served as the reference for Agent Chase.
Admittedly I'm still working on a unified style for these characters but if you have legitimate advice and a decent reference for what you consider an attractive face I'm willing to listen.
How'm I doin?
Does this color palette work for Duke?
Very nice the colors really lend to the dystopian feel.
I was planning on having a more upbeat future-ish city for the background to the Iris and Will pic I posted above. Any tips?
That's cool. I really like a cleaner, more utopian look sometimes.
I've just never drawn a city or buildings in years. I figure I'll still give it a shot soon and apply to a more refined version of this>>77744146. Despite what the other anon said I think I did a decent job... on Will's face at least.
I figure dystopian = hard edges
Utopian = rounder edges more fluid building designs?
Yeah I guess. It's futuristic, you can do whatever you want. If you want to do a more modern, realistic look, try looking at pictures of Singapore or something. They're pretty much a futuristic city already.
inspired by something similar i saw on /aco/ one time
Some of my old newish art of Agent Chase.
Not crappy just raw. Has a recognizable cartoony look to it.
also I just got Toon Boom so here's the first thing I made with it, still practicing
Got a tablet last week so trying to learn it. Outline of something I made earlier. Started out as Sans.
This is the colored version but it came out really shitty. I made a bunch of mistakes and I didn't really want to do a line art layer but was too stubborn to learn how to change the color of the original outline so I just did the lineart as quickly as possible and didn't like how the lineart came out. Mostly disappointed in the arms/hands and the mouth. This is only my second time coloring and my first time shading.
In progress. I've heard some people say to avoid black outlines like the plague, but it seems like they do the job quite well, plus colored outlines seem to take much longer. Is it more ideal to try and find a medium between the two?
For a forum competition. Theme was music. Submit any picture. So I went with Dazzler.
It's much easier to organize because the program is designed from the ground up to do boards. You can do onion-skinning and have custom boxes for dialogue and screen direction. ALSO it doesn't become bogged down like photoshop does with a million layers.
I've done boards in photoshop. It's... not a great idea beyond a certain level.
Also, Storyboard Pro is practically the industry standard in the American animation world. Europe I think uses TV Paint more. Japan... I have no idea.
Here's a bunch of hands from a comic I've been working on for the past week or so. Drawing a fuckload of pages in a short amount of time really helps you learn how to get better.
Villain sketches and color testing with my new Touch markers. I need to buy more and get better complementary colors. The ones I have now don't quite work the way I want.
Hey /co/ I've never posted in one of these before, but i'm a sculptor (at school for sfx) and I sculpt a lot of things /co/ related. I've done a couple batman statues, one ive yet to finish is batman fighting the joker from Batman RIP. ive also done a small bust of the green goblin that I ran in plastic and never finished painting, but I hope to sell someday. I think about posting my art here all the time for opinions and ideas, but I just never have.
I'm not sure if my current project is strictly /co/ related but im sculpting a lifesize acklay head from star wars, and i just started molding it yesterday.
It's me again. This time I'm working on some flash animation backgrounds for some videos I'm doing. I'm documenting some of the hundreds of 90s shareware games I've amassed with little records of their existence online so I'm making an environment like in a cheesy 90s sci-fi.
Genuine question: how can I learn to draw?
'draw more' doesn't work for me because I get very unmotivated and depressed looking at my drawings.
I'm absolutely terrible right now, not even joking. I don't know if there's something wrong with my head or something but everything I put on paper looks like genuine shit.
I learned from watching other people draw and studying how their hands move. Another thing that helped is just blatantly tracing for a while before doing stuff completely on my own. This is a very early method and shouldn't be used as a crutch but it's a good way to start drawing with a satisfactory finished product. Find out what you can draw on your own and really focus on them and then branch out to other things when you're ready. The key really is practice though.
It goes through all the basics and has a well designed learning program that paces itself well.
It also a plays like a game which is like crack to your brain which means you will be coming back.
It's a decent crash course of the basics and it minimizes the chances of you starting to procrastinate and stop drawing.
It's kinda like Rocksmith but for drawing. That shit works.
And once you have gotten comfortable enough drawing with it you can spread your wings and start drawing stuff on your own.
It will not make you a master but it will get you from the zero skill point to the point where you have enough control and skill to start drawing shit you want to draw and won't completely hate. Aka the first hump that kills 99% of the artists.
Working on my comic, but remembered I don't know shit about shading/lighting.
The shading on that bush does NOT do it for me.
You need to establish a light source first. It can be the sun, a fire or a lightbulb, you just need to know where it is in relation to the rest of the set and characters. Honestly, what you have now looks fine, although it's hard to judge without full color yet. Put in the remaining flat colors, and then it may be easier to help.
Well the problem was that this is supposed to be in a dark, greenish forest, so there isn't really much of a light source to GO off of. I wanted it to feel like she's just surrounded by trees, with leaves blocking most of the sun.
Something I drew, not co but its one of my drawings.
I hate how I drew Guts' face
Well, what you've shown is her colors under normal lighting, yes? For something in full shade, I would personally create a new palette for that situation. Shadows should not only be a bit darker that the color it's on, but a bit more bluish in color. The opposite goes for highlights- they should be a brighter shade and more red/yellow. Because of this, you can make palettes that reflect tons of different environments, using shades that never even were a part of the natural light color.
This one was not that horrible, take a guess on who it is.
Decided to draw another one of Iris and Will Vandom since I wasn't happy with my previous attempt at Iris' face. That said I do like what I'm doing with Will, she's really fun to draw.
Posting some OC art for the bump.
Now I know its a little autistic but, when messing around with a adventure time character creator in another thread, I made this design. It looked so good I couldn't pass it up. I'm thinking on keeping it for my own nefarious purposes, seeing as how noone else is using it.
Or Kryten as a human. Sweet! I just got a tablet, suck at the whole rough sketch thin, but is it just me or does it seem easier to draw with a tablet than a pencil? On paper, I have trouble just making lines meet, but not on my tablet.
Also: how many layers should I be working with when doing something (remember: noob), and what opacity for each? Starting with rough sketch or stick-figure.
Redrew Nikkinack's girls
Fucking hate how she has sameface and broken-ass noses on literally every girl she draws, so I decided to redraw some of her stuff to somewhat improve
also practiced some head angles
Different anon, but I have the same problem where just trying to draw more gets me nowhere.
Pic related. It's shit and I haven't been able to get much farther than this level of completion in over a year. Not a case of artblock, either, I just have no idea how to draw in a way that doesn't make me want to tear my hair out.
animation fag from earlier in the thread, still doing practicey stuff
Look at a real frog jumping and then get motion from that.
Right now it looks like he's being dropped gently instead of falling from a jump and he also stays the same size through out, use some squash when he lands
I threw this together a minute ago. Any critique would be appreciated.
Death! DEATH and BLOOD!
BLOOD FOR THE BLOOD GOD!
This one is a concept for a bigger pic.
Request from you drawers
Make this guy black, recolor his eyes dark brown
Slightly widen his nose, slightly
Request form you drawers

I think you'll find that most drawers aren't actually very good at drawing, because like armoires and credenzas, they're actually inanimate pieces of furniture. You'd be better off asking an artist.
What do you lot think? This is my first time really trying to drawing anything at all, because whenever I tried before it was a piece of shit. Added a bit of coloring after about and hour and a half of work, and I'm about to add a bit more. Thoughts?
its supposed to be tomoko from watamote
trying to figure out how to draw this character's nose facing forward,any advice?
(i realise the legs are short)
character for a comic im working on
That's the idea, since its animu related. Update with color, what think?
Something that's been lying around on my desk for a month. I might just start again from scratch but if anyone has some good guides/advice on construction (especially legs), that would be helpful.
Elf OC redesigned a bit.
I like drawing scratchy stuff, especially for 40K pics. I think it fits the theme.
It's still in the construction/figuring it out stage. I just can't really properly visualize a line in my head to commit to just one stroke on paper. If that makes sense.
It's like I'm feeling my way around the paper, if I like a line I 'carve out' a bit more.
Try to learn how to do the proportions/face normally before stylisation. It'll make your life a lot easier when it then comes to extreme features and you'll know how to construct it.
