For my third try at drawing something chibi I think it turned out pretty well.

That's a cute chibi drawing! Simple but adorable.

I think though, the paws are a little on the small side.
Title: Re: Robin's Sketchbook
Post by: Robin Ryuu on August 09, 2014, 02:51:17 PM
Thanks Echo. I didn't even think about the paw size, I was more concerned with getting the toes right... aw well, I'll try it next time.

To Crow
Thank you. I think it took me a few hours, mostly changing the pose and trying to decide how to color it. I tried shading it a couple of times but in the end I just left it white.



To Roshon
Yeah I figured that. The first time I read it I imagined you saying it like a guy who was reading a newspaper instead of paying attention. :tongue:

Thanks. I guess it's the style I've developed, even my dragons that I've put a lot of work into seem rather... clean I guess... I need to finish the ones I've been working on recently...

I wouldn't do that if I were you... I was making her as a chibi animal form of one of my comics characters, a dragon actually, she's bit prideful and distrusts strangers.

Thanks, I mostly draw wolves and dragons so I've gotten pretty good at them, but everything else like my humans for example are a bit lacking. I'll practice drawing humans and you practice drawing some animals, then we can give each other some advice. ;)

These are the main characters of my comic.

Klaude
This is the best of the pictures I've drawn of him...



(https://imagizer.imageshack.us/v2/735x629q90/631/slQ2wQ.png)
Misty
This was drawn as a full body picture, but I had traced the body so I'm not gonna post the full pic.

Nice artwork.

I like the way you made Klaude's scarf. It looks very dynamic with those shadows.

That other character Mysty... wow, I don't know what that is but... seriously that is quite impressive.

Misty is a dragon, although she doesn't really look like one with her feathered wings and fur (It's actually long, thin feathers. ;))...

So I'm not entirely sure if this is the right place to post this one. She's an original character, but drawn in Code Lyoko's style. (There's a little bit of manga in her too.) Code Lyoko is my favorite cartoon and after that is Danny Phantom.

Was that done in a program or on a piece of paper?
Title: Re: Robin's Sketchbook
Post by: Robin Ryuu on August 29, 2014, 12:11:33 AM
I drew her on a sheet of notebook paper, then used Paint.NET to remove the note lines and the smudges.
Title: Re: Robin's Sketchbook
Post by: WhiteCrow on August 29, 2014, 12:13:26 AM
Your lines are so crisp.

Serious question...

Can you learn to have a steady hand so you can draw? Or is it something that if you don't have it, you don't have it?

Like when I attempt to draw, I can't draw a good circle for the life of me. I cant draw a straight line either. Am I doomed to never being able to do so?

Hrm... Perhaps, but let me tell you a secret. I wouldn't be able to draw a straight line if two rulers were super glued to the paper. So, I cheat.
A trick I learned when watching my brother one day was to make repeating short light strokes in the general area of where you want to put the line. I then erase the messy lines that go far out of the way and then using my pencil I darken where I decided where the line was, using a back and fourth motion. And the last touch would be to care fully erase around the darkened line so the it looks clean.
This way takes a while but once I started drawing like this, my art greatly improved.
I hope it will work for you.
Title: Re: Robin's Sketchbook
Post by: legomaestro on August 29, 2014, 03:17:18 AM
If it's a serious hand-wrist issue drawing a straight line is tricky, but one can find a way to work around that if they find the right techniques. There was someone who gave a TEDtalk on that matter 'Embrace the shake'. The artist suffers from a condition like that, but he still found a way to draw art regardless

I was trying to make them look as if they had muscular necks, maybe I over did it... I've always had trouble with drawing the far eye, it's always crooked or too small.

She's smaller and simpler than the other dragons I've been drawing lately, but then again, I don't normally scale them.

What differentiates a dragon from a leviathan?

Question:

What differentiates a dragon from a leviathan?
Umm... I'm not sure of the history or anything, but leviathans are giant sea serpents. Traditional European dragons are fire-breathing creatures of of the land and sky, are usually malevolent and have four legs and a pair of wings on a bulky body. And Asian dragons are also creatures of the land and air, however they don't posses wings, they are also generally associated with streams and rain. They have four legs connected to a long serpentine body, a mane, two long whiskers, and a pair of antlers adorn the head. They are typically benevolent and wise.
Not the best description in the world, but you should be able to get the idea.
A lot of the dragons that people draw now (including mine) don't follow any design rules.
Title: Re: Robin's Sketchbook
Post by: Lord Kesashi on September 02, 2014, 01:21:44 AM
The Leviathan is one of the jewish beasts (Behemoth, Ziz, Leviathan). As Robin said, yes, the Leviathan is a humongous sea creature and a Dragon is a magical, fire-breathing, flying reptile. I don't know much about the theology, but the leviathan is like the king of the sea, the behemoth, king of the land, and the Ziz, king of the sky.

So yay for drawing my first post worthy attempt at drawing a cute girl.


This is Lynn. She is my character from a dropped RP that I am re-purposing as a side character in one of my comics.

And this is how she looked in the RP...

This is my most recent drawing of one of the main characters, formerly known as Klaude.

William

Nice lineart XD

So wait, Lynn used to be a fantasical beast?

For both headshots of the characters, the necks are a little misplaced. Try to draw them closer to behind the ear.
And the jawbone should eventually connect up towards the ear.
Like so:

Hope this helps.

Thanks guys. I thought it was clever to incorporate the "R"s from my pen name into the design. On a side note, Ryuu is Japanese for dragon, so my pen name is basically "Robin the dragon".

I would prefer it if you didn't actually. This character belong's to WhiteCrow, so if you want to try editing it, you should ask him first (he's a nice guy so I'm fairly sure that he'd say you could, but just to be safe).
In the future you may want to consider asking the artist if it is alright for you to edit their picture first.

Sorry if I sound mean or anything.

I'd say it's an absolutely horrifying abomination of nature that must be put down and rendered extinct as soon as possible, and an insult to Dragons... but that's if it was a real thing.

On another more relevant note.

Your picture here is kawaii, to an extent - only the eye seems... off.

You could try to give the eye a little more reflection of light to indicate curvature and make it stand out a bit more, but otherwise for a side on perspective I really like the 3D effect provided by the boney looking plating and body-parts :)

Title: Re: Robin's Sketchbook
Post by: NO1SY on November 27, 2014, 12:07:13 AM
Well you have a small circle indicating reflection at the moment, but it doesn't do much to show the eye's curvature.

Maybe by putting a couple more reflective spots to follow the curve and give it a more 3D feel?

Alternatively get rid of the hard outline surrounding the reflective spot and make it a clearer shading gradient?

just suggestions, don't change it if you are happy with it though.

Your Chibi dragon is fantastic! The perspective is great too, I much prefer the 3/4 view to the side on views (although those are good too :) ). The 'paws' and wings came out great! You should be very happy with it. It would be cool to see more of your work in this style, I think it suits you well.

:dance: The side views are great for designing them, but it doesn't give them much life to the characters.




Here is another one I made. I reused some of the lines from Robin's line art, but I made quite a few changes to it to match the character.

Looking at that image Robin, it feels like the back, specifically around the waist, should be thinner, with a line for the back between the 2 arms. Just my thoughts. Also, the rear arm elbow feels off to me, but I can't pinpoint what would correct it. Love the head though, the thing looks wicked.
Title: Re: Robin's Sketchbook
Post by: Robin Ryuu on June 03, 2015, 01:50:17 AM
Ah, thank you, Monok. I used the 3D model that comes with Manga Studio 5 and I drew the back line where it put it, so perhaps it simply looks off because of the arms. :noidea: And yes... those arms are horrible... I believe the elbow is too narrow/small.

Post by: Lovus Eternius on June 06, 2015, 01:22:17 AM
I think Goro from Mortal Kombat X would be a good reference for four armed alien races in terms of the arm positioning... gives them arms and joints and whatnot room to move without interfering with each other too much.

Also, I would give that species a longer tail, because long tails seem to look better on humanoid specimens... that would make it look more like a carnivore and feral though... I suppose... perhaps... I don't know but I think the design I have in my head (but can't put on paper) probably looks/seems better in my head.

Hey, I can't wait to see the rest of your fan comic~! :thumbsup:

As for my criticism, I was a bit confused as to how bright the room was at first glance. I say that because of how the character  reacted in the first page in the bottom panel. At first, I thought she was face-palming. It wasn't until the second page when she was peeking that I realized that the room was bright.

I would suggest changing her reaction to the bright light by having more body movement, such as turn her head a little and taking a step back. :hmm: 

Keep up on your goal and fantastic work~! :clapping:

I do know the perspective in the 3rd panel is horrible.

For the second panel I suggest using more rulers...  The third panel it looks like you attempted a 5 point perspective... I would say to determine your vanishing points and horizon line...

Those are just supposed to be rough sketches... Although I honestly have no clue how to use vanishing points and horizon lines. I know what they are, I just don't understand how to use them.
Title: Re: Robin's Sketchbook

Here is a pretty easy tutorial for ur 5 point perspective https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=w5-6-zvSZNg (https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=w5-6-zvSZNg). Note, it doesn't have to be a crystal ball... 

Vanishing points are basically where the lines vanish to...  So we all know rail roads are parallel but as if goes to the distance it vanishes as we can't see that far...
(http://www.mattereal.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/01/railroad_tracks4141-e1325714876102.jpg)

The horizon line is basically what it sounds like...  Where the sky and ground meet.

I don't feel like cleaning up the lines at the moment. Her design was based on -> http://robinryuu.deviantart.com/art/Jasper-Lenz-516298814

I do know that her calves are a bit uneven. She is also short, but she is meant to be. She is also fairly flat chested too. Red lines are fine.

The knee indentations does make it feel a bit odd, but the most eye catching image I see is her fingers and thumbs. They seem more like claws due to the roundness off of the base knock joints. :hmm:

I've found an picture that was closes to your character's position, and I hope it helps out in some form and way:

OK...at first glance things looks OK but when i looked more carefully , her arms are a bit short...wrist line should be at the same level as the crotch...and there should be one head length between the nombril and the crotch

look at how the teenagers here are drawn
https://books.google.de/books?id=zPSiDa5jXtEC&printsec=frontcover&dq=manga+body+basic+and+poses&hl=fr&sa=X&ei=YafrU6rWDeyP4gT1jYD4BQ#v=onepage&q=manga%20body%20basic%20and%20poses&f=false

there might be the same problem with the legs...and her knees are too much profiled.

Besides, you need to practice hands, but this is something I also struggle with and so are many others I guess :3

One thing I really find useful when I draw a pose is to use my own body, I close my eyes and try to visualise how all the parts of my bodies are placed...or after drawing a sketch I try to imitate it and see if it works...but you can also use a mirror instead.

It's so that I can easily tell which part the line belongs to. Like on the hips, if that was all black it would be a bit confusing, to me at least.

Post by: MaidenManga on November 03, 2015, 08:43:40 PM
It's dark.
The art is good, clean, but everything is dark, the eyes are a nice vibrant teal-ish colour, and it goes well with the face tatt, it's very much Robin's style yet it's refreshing seeing it on a human, that's why I like it so much.

Vibrant colours, it's hard to explain but seeing as I'm a fellow former colleague of yours I'm familiar with your work and so I know the "Robin style" ;)  ;)

I say do a few more humans and I'll be able to point out certain features to you. The dragons you do you have a style with too, but it's more familiarity with your work!

Take care and looking forward to future work.

I typically just sketch lines until it looks alright. Very rarely do I reference things while I'm drawing, but when I do it tends to help.

Decided to post a page update anyways...

Grey: Home for Strays - Prologue - Scene 1 of 2
Page 1: Shows the outside of the mansion/guild.

Page 2: 1st panel is still a sketch, top of door needs finished, books/shelf/box needs more color variation, need to add Jasper's shadow.

Page 3: Most of it is still a sketch. Need to add the dialogue:

Man: "How would you like another mission?"

Jasper: "Where to?"

(The man opened an eye spying a tall younger man standing where the girl had been. "Hexus? Where is Jasper?"

"I saw her running down the hall a moment ago," Hexus replied, walking forward.

The older man sighed. "That girl needs to learn a thing or two about patience."

After a few moments they heard a whinny and turned to look out the window.)

Jasper is a dhampir, which means one of her parents was a vampire while the other was human.

I did the entire thing by hand (stylus). I used a program called Fresh Paint. Everything except the red was done with the mechanical pencil tool, with varying pressures to get different thicknesses of the lines.

No, it's not. You can wiki it if you'd like.

Post by: Robin Ryuu on October 02, 2016, 03:18:03 PM
Well I'm now halfway through the first semester of university. I picked out a few of the projects I've done so far to show you guys.

2D Design

This class is about designing an image and making stuff look interesting.

Elements of Design

Line. Shape. Texture.

(http://img11.deviantart.net/79e5/i/2016/276/7/0/elements_of_design_by_robinryuu-dajrfqm.jpg)
Sound Lines

This is the result of a project where we had to sit and listen to our surroundings and then create a visual representation of the sounds we heard. (The black and white ones are mine.) The big one is 50 inches long.

(http://img04.deviantart.net/2b09/i/2016/276/0/6/sound_line_projects_by_robinryuu-dajreoy.jpg)
Name Drawing

This is only a section of the project because I don't feel like sharing my name publicly. This is a fan art of my Ninetails and Lucario team from Pokemon: Mystery Dungeon - Explorers of Sky. It also doubles as an "N".

(http://img04.deviantart.net/a6d9/i/2016/276/3/6/team_discovery_by_robinryuu-dajrj9g.jpg)

Foundations of Drawing

Pure still-lifes...

Organizational Line Drawing

It's like measuring the body by "heads", but with other objects.

(http://pre10.deviantart.net/08bd/th/pre/f/2016/276/f/1/organizational_line_drawing_by_robinryuu-dajrgbz.jpg)
Perspective Drawing
(http://img00.deviantart.net/3df4/i/2016/276/1/e/perspective_drawing_by_robinryuu-dajrh6o.jpg)
Contour Drawing

Had to deal with positive and negative space.

(http://pre03.deviantart.net/649d/th/pre/f/2016/276/e/d/contour_drawing_by_robinryuu-dajrhrw.jpg)
Charcoal Reduction Drawing

I never want to draw a six pack with an eraser again...

Post by: Robin Ryuu on February 04, 2017, 06:04:39 PM
Ah thank you. ^^ I am currently an art major, yes and I'm currently in my second semester.

Actually it is my first painting (acrylic colorwheel excluded). Though this picture was taken after our class had critique. All the students and the professor comment on each painting and say what is good and bad with the piece and how they'd fix it. After critique we are given time to fix/edit our work before it is actually graded.

I took a picture of it before critique too if you'd like to compare.

Before critique

Thank you. It's actually part of a comic page I'm working on. ;D That's Jasper, btw.

Still not sure if I'll do full color throughout or grayscale with some colored pages here and there. I still can't figure out how to make grayscale look good though so color is easier for now...
Title: Re: Robin's Sketchbook
Post by: legomaestro on February 24, 2017, 07:02:49 AM
Those eyes are pretty well done. And you're making a comic for Grey Soul? Awesomesauce.

Grayscale really is tricky to get done right. It is pretty important when trying to show depth though, but I just can't do it. I prefer Sin City Black and White as a result (When it comes to drawing)
Title: Re: Robin's Sketchbook
Post by: Robin Ryuu on February 24, 2017, 10:52:22 AM
It's "Grey: Home for Strays", but thanks. XD

I've been looking at the manga I have on my shelf lately and it seem that shadows are used sparingly. So they don't rely on gray tones so much and just black and white. But then again I'm not going for a purely manga style of comic so I guess it's really up to me in the end.

Here's a WIP screenshot of a dragon I'm making in the 3D modeling program Blender. It still needs it's back feet and head and then any character specific details. This is my 3rd attempt at modeling and it has taken roughly 7 and a half hours so far.

Whoa you're working with Blender to make dragons now? That's looking really good. That can't have been easy yikes. I'm still stuck at the default cube. My proudest achievement.

Props on you for going all out like this. Keep at it Robin. Also late but I like this dragon bust for some reason.

I say you went with the right colors! As always, excellent work. I don't usually do much with 3D Modeling programs. I used an auto-CADD software a few times for my drafting class in high school, but that's about it. Will we be seeing a colored version of that model, or will that just be hell on earth to make?
Title: Re: Robin's Sketchbook
Post by: BobbyJoeXForgotenSB on April 24, 2017, 02:53:21 AM
 texturing isnt that hard, especially with the UV Mapping set up in blender, not just that but it is also an option to colour right on the model... which is new, that wasnt there last time i used it
which was sometime last year or the year before


but i do recommend scupting the face, giving it a little more detail, or it'll look like what Mario looked like in Super Mario 64

It depends on whether or not I can successfully add detail to the model. Lol I might actually need to change the wings as it does not seem as if they are able to be rigged for animation as they are now.

This was my first attempt at using color with oil paint (and also first time trying to color anything realistically). Mixing very dark brown is impossible. You have to use purple and hope for the best. ^^;

(http://img13.deviantart.net/beec/i/2017/131/e/6/direct_method_painting_by_robinryuu-db8x0uw.jpg)





This was the glaze painting I did for my painting class. Honestly I liked the grayscale underpainting more than the colored version so I'll dig that version out of my files later.

(http://img15.deviantart.net/04a9/i/2017/131/1/f/glaze_painting_by_robinryuu-db8x0id.jpg)





This was for one of my class assignments where we had to figure out how to abstract a space of our choosing. I chose one of the photographs I took when I went to New York City with the other art majors last semester.
(http://pre03.deviantart.net/6aeb/th/pre/f/2017/131/b/2/abstract_painting_by_robinryuu-db8x1a6.jpg)





And this was my final painting for my class this semester. We had to stick a whole bunch of random items and styles into our paintings and make it look good. (Mine was fairly empty compared to my classmates' though.)

Thank you everyone.  :blush:




So how long until you start raking up million$ with your paintings? ;)

These are exceptionally well-done and the colours are soft to the eyes. :clapping: :thumbsup:

I, especially, love the pinecone. Curious how long that took. :hmm: ;D
XD Who knows. I might continue painting or I might not.

That pinecone gave me loads of trouble since I couldn't make a dark brown. It took maybe 9 hours of work just on the pinecone.

Sick seashell, great paintings! I'm so envious, I'm not half as good with actual colour... in a few years, when both kids are in school, I'll pick up a brush again and try for it again. Good work!
I wish you luck! For me it's a matter of having to spend hours in a classroom staring at the canvas. ^^;

the one with the glazing looks great!

so you are majoring in art?

What is the trick to achieving that glazing effect?
Yes, I am. What I did what to paint a grayscale painting and then I added color to the painting by thinning the paint with Liquin and going over the underpainting in layers after each has time to dry.

Ahaha, paint and I don't get along at all. The fact that you can do all this is mind-boggling to me. It all looks excellent to me!
I wasn't too fond of paint before this class either honestly.

Those paintings look fantastic! :). Last time when I used paintbrushes was in grade school - I still don't like using them to this day :). But you really did great with them - they probably require a lot of patience and different type of skills too.
Nice to see some diversities once in a while :)
Lots of patience, yes.  :unsure:

Those really are amazing paintings there Robin. Love the first two, but the third one is my favourite for some reason.
Lol, it was my classmates' favorite for some reason as well.

nice paintings. i cant say i get the abstract one though, but it is abstract after all :P

Abstract still confuses me even after spending a few classes learning about how to do it.

Very cool paintings, the colours and general vibe of the pieces are nice the second one especially really pops out to me. The shading and lighting makes it look great. I quite like the blue backgrounds on them as well. Good stuff.

Thanks. I'm aware of the shoulders though it's also a problem with the neck. The ear is also small... (And I never can get the far eye to look right.)


Here's a quick sketch of two of my characters, Arett and Aria (Keith and Misty if you know them by their old names.)

(http://img04.deviantart.net/d37a/i/2017/173/7/d/i422_cimgpsh_orig_by_robinryuu-dbdp7aj.jpg)

I think I've decided to do away with Arett's mask/missing eye. Never could design a mask that suited him and it's easier to show emotion when you don't have to avoid a side all the time. It's won't affect much anyways since the dragons in this story don't rely much on their eyesight so Arett still has the handicap of having his... ehh... still have no idea what to call them... Feelers? Antennae? ... The handicap of having them burnt short.

The feeler thingys are how the dragons sense the world around them in great detail, allowing them to wield magic like few others could. When focusing on their magic and surrounding the dragons' third eyelids cover their eyes to protect them and to block their vision which allows them to focus more.

XD It's supposed to have a similar effect I guess? It's a character for a short story idea I'm (sorta) working on. It's one of many minor gods that was corrupted by a "fragment" of darkness/evil when people got the bright idea to try blowing up the "source" of the darkness/evil in their world. It didn't turn out that well you see...

Ended up doing a quick 10-15 minute sketch. Going to use this to try finding a painting style that doesn't kill my hand yet still looks good... hopefully.

If anyone is wondering where I've disappeared to I'm at my parents house looking after one of my cats whose ear has swollen up from an infection. We don't have the money to take her to the vet and my mom says she read that them draining the ear is usually fatal anyways. I'm staying with her to make sure she's getting enough to drink and such through the day. I'm still going to be here for a while for various reasons so I'll grab my computer the next time I head to feed the fish at my apartment.

Until then I have some paper and my pencil and a desire to practice drawing expressions. Human characters too, but you must have an image I can reference.

For $2.50 through Paypal (or 250 DA points) I'll draw a bust that is finished like the dragon in the upper left of the image above. I have 10 slots open.

Here's a sketchdump for one of my comics. Dug this stuff out of my WIP folder and worked on one a bit. Feel free to redline some stuff if you wish, I'm not used to odd poses and foreshortening at all yet. (And I do know the one drawing is smooshed.

I can't read the last part. The anatomy of the girls looks good.

(I changed the script again... Never satisfied.)
The dialogue reads...

Jasper: You sent for me?
Milo: Ah, Jasper. Yes I did.
Milo: Are you prepared to take another contract?
Jasper: What is it?
Milo: There has been a string of killings in the port town of Evansburg. People disappear and their remains are later found partially devoured.
Milo: This includes other bounty hunters.

Yep, same one.

Not bad, not bad at all :D What's your comic about?
This story is about two young members of a bounty hunting guild and how their relationships with themselves, each other, and the world develop and change over time. (Lots of drama.) The setting and characters themselves are fantasy based as the main characters, Thomas and Jasper, are a half-wolf-folk (half werewolf) and a dhampir (a half vampire) respectively.

as for the storyboard, hope to see more done, like' don't do a storyboard, then finish the page, do multible, like do the whole chapter before starting to imk, also are you inking trad or digitally?
I hope to get the storyboards done for the entire first arc done before I start inking, then make maybe one or two storyboard chapters for every one I ink. I'm probably going to ink digitally since I don't have anything I would need to to traditional pages well. And I also have a new tablet with an actual screen built in coming in the mail so that should make things quicker and easier.

Learn to draw with the other hand.

I read the prologue. Here are my comments:

Quote
Girl in the doorway”: Morgan said you wanted to see me for something?

I would write ": Morgan said you wanted to see me?". The "for something" is redundat.

Quote
The bodies appear to have been devoured and there were traces of dark magic so I've been told.

The "so I have been told" doesn't sounds so good IMO. I would write it: "I have ben told the bodies appear to have been devoured and there were traces of dark magic " or "The bodies appear to have been devoured and there were traces of dark magic according to my sources"

The rest seems interesting. Will read chapter 1 later!

I would write: He was trying to decipher...also that sentence sounds bad somehow. That double when. Perhaps write "while escaping..."

The young man climbed out of the carriage and was stretching his stiff muscles when the driver interrupted him.

Interrupted from streching muscles? Not like that is an activity you can be interrupted from.

He walked toward the town he could see in the distance, not noticing the broken sign that lay in the bushes beside him. On it was the word “Evansburg”

Any particular reason why the driver didnt take him directly to the town?

It's just supposed to look like the shoe. The sole is fairly hollow and easily crushed.



Busy with classes and the projects for my art classes. I have been making some stone/crystal jewelry though. If anybody is interested in that kind of stuff I'll take pictures. Hoping to sell the majority of it actually...

Approaching finals... Snuck in a sketch. Without practicing much my style has no consistency to it anymore. *burns the other recent attempts* Finally feel like I'm getting close with her design though.

I love her outfit, and really like the pensieve expression you have going for her there. Reminds me of a character designed by CLAMP for some reason.

Wishing you the best of luck for the finals.

Thank you Lego. She's an overthinker much like I am so I tried to capture a little of that feeling. Hrm... I've never read CLAMP. Is that a good thing?

And thanks again. ^^

It's a very good thing, and I see it too. BTW, I think CLAMP is a production studio. I know they did the work on Code Geass. The only thing that bugs me about the sketch is how awkardly stretched her neck looks. The design is nice, though. The hair looks so...feminine.

Oh I love CLAMP designs. They're what made Code Geass what it is methinks. It'd be weird seeing the characters in Geass look like Jojo's bizarre adventure haha.  The girls especially are cute as heck!

And yeaup, dig that hair too

Gotcha.

Her neck is a problem yeah. Anatomy's still not a strong suit of mine though I see little improvements from time to time.

Yay. Her hair has always given me trouble since it's supposed to resemble the crest she has in dragon form. It's getting there but it needs a few slight tweaks. And in human form the strands will stand on end when angry for comedic effect and when she uses her magic they'll seem to float...

Eep, forgot to reply. Finals... well it depends on the subject and the professor, but usually it seems to be open. You can do what you want, but it has to relate to what you've learned and be good enough to impress the professors. And some give exams in addition.

And nah, I'm fine. Thank you though.



I forget if I posted the sketch for this a while back? I decided to team up with Dr. Striker to make an interactive story type thing at Deviantart. (It's still a WIP.)

Both the works look really great! I'm sorry that I can't be more helpful with the pixel animation. In my experience though, you might've made the image a little too small, because even pixel art needs a high level of detail. It's pretty close to being real good, though. Maybe just some shading and distinction on the dragon's belly would do the trick.

The prints I'll be making are probably different though. I'm hoping to make all-over printed shirts of my own. I got inspired by artists like Redrop and Boomslank and wanted to try my hand at it. Proudly wear some designs of my own and see if they gain any popularity.

I'm hoping to get into Artist Alley at conventions as a hobby since I'm kinda bored with taking photos now.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but I think you might be thinking of digital prints while the prints techniques I'm learning about go back several hundred years where you carve the images by hand. (Which can be converted into a digital format and turned into digital prints like how you have Starry Night on coffee cups, but...)

I'm a "studio art" major so unfortunately we don't really touch digital illustration much. (That's "graphic design" people's area.)

Still though it just takes a little bit of know how, so you could probably do it. I just figured you were talking about the other thing.

Thanks.

Well in a previous version of their story, one of the human main characters started calling her "Misty" since she wouldn't tell him her name. So even then Misty wasn't intended to be her real name. She, like several of my characters, have had several names since their creation. (I tried to change Keith's name, but I kept typing
"Keith" so it's stuck. XD)

I used my entire weekend to carve it (minus time for meals, two movies, sleep, etc.). But I was rushing since I have 4 linos due here in about 2 weeks and my wrist is feeling it (I have 2 finished being carved and ready to print, but 2 more to design and carve). I do recommend giving yourself more time to rest than I am, but it also depends on how big your piece is and how detailed you want it.

Also, this is very important, carve away from yourself. I gave my thumb a new hole yesterday, it wouldn't surprise me if it hit the bone.

Actually all except for one of the necklaces, which I made for myself out of damaged glass beads, are either mostly or entirely made of stone beads (though there's a few with dyed stones).

As for the Etsy I'm still setting it up. It requires you to make finished listings before you can "open" your shop. The listings require the item's weight and shipping weight and other stuff. Just bought a food scale so I can measure the weight, but the shipping stuff still eludes me.

Simple patterned bracelets are probably going to be around $10-15 and the more complex ones would be around $20-25.

Ah, thank you K-Seki. ^^

And scratch my previous statement about not knowing. I broke down and ordered the $100 worth of stuff to finish and package the stuff. Hopefully I can make that back through sales haha...

Though 65 bracelets x an average of say $20 per is $1,300. But of course there's fee's involved for listing and selling on the site.

I think all I need now is a better camera than my phone and my birthday is on the 10th. (Gonna be 20, gah!) Though I believe I can swap out photos on the listings after I post them.

It's made of clear quartz chips, amazonite chips, and teal glass E-beads. Also it measures 1 and a half inches long (215.9mm). I just made it a few hours ago and I still have loose beads left if the length needs adjusted.

Spoiler

Patterns made out of small chip beads take me the longest since I have to sort them by size and fit. I also had to smooth down a few sharp edges since the quality control on the amazonite chips wasn't very good. So I'd say it's probably going to be a $25usd one.

I can. I already have a few reserved until they're finished. One more won't hurt (or others if I get more requests). Shipping is something I still need to figure out.

I have very tiny wrists so I wouldn't use that argument lol. You can take a piece of string, wrap it around your wrist, then mark the string where the two ends meet. After that you measure the section you measured with a ruler.

WIP Absol Figurine/Sculpture

Still have one leg to finish bulking out and then I can add claws and the leg spikes. Not bad for my first time making a clay figure on an armature if I do say so myself. I just hope it doesn't crack when I stick it in the oven.

Thanks!

What were you thinking of making may I ask? (And with what material?)
Title: Re: Robin's Sketchbook
Post by: suuper-san on June 07, 2018, 10:02:06 AM
anime figurines, I'm not ashamed to say. They (at least the ones I want) are so expensive I could never afford them without crying and feeling like I'm in debt :P
I'd probably start from chibi figures because they are smaller and probably easier.
they just never feel worth it, like regradless of the size they are always double or triple what I feel they are worth.
other than that, I like miniatures, so small anythings is up my street.
as for what material, I don't really know but I have some Sculpey III clay from my clay-mation days which I think is oven-bake, might try and use that up first. an air drying clay is probably my kinda thing but no idea @_@
Title: Re: Robin's Sketchbook
Post by: Robin Ryuu on June 07, 2018, 10:22:17 AM
I know the feeling on the figures, lol... Honestly though if you can let go of them, good quality handmade figures sell for quite a bit. Debating on selling the absol or giving it as a gift so I looked at prices. I could probably sell it for around $90 usd.

I read that Sculpey III is more brittle and prone to burning in thin areas so it may not be the best choice for spindly human limbs and such. And I don't think I could work with air dry clays as I work slowly (may be challenging). I'm using Super Sculpey medium blend. It is home oven-baked.

Damn Robin you can sculpt!? That's pretty cool haha! Damn I've always wanted to be able to make something solid with my two hands. How long did it take to make?  What clay do you use in particular?
Title: Re: Robin's Sketchbook
Post by: Robin Ryuu on June 07, 2018, 01:45:31 PM
It would appear that I can. I've only done one little test lizard thing before this that I made while watching a movie. This is my first time putting clay onto an armature (wire skeleton). I haven't worked on it anymore since the picture was taken, but I was alternating between sculpting and playing Skyrim for two days so... 10ish hours, maybe less? And I use medium blend Super Sculpey polymer clay.

Also I really do recommend sculpting figures even if you don't bake them to keep (so you can reuse the clay). I've learned a lot more about anatomy by doing a couple armatures and sculpts than I have by drawing for the same ratio of work time. I guess it's because you have to learn what looks right from various angles.
Title: Re: Robin's Sketchbook
Post by: legomaestro on June 07, 2018, 03:16:15 PM
Which Skyrim were you playing? I had no idea you play Robin haha.

And ah yeah that I do believe. I bought a wooden mannequin and it's really something - just an estimation of the human figure you can rotate around and observe does wonders for your drawing. I bet with sculpting its even more helpful.

Funny enough making a proper armeture is what scares me too. I'd love to see the wirefigure you made for this one if you ever make something similar again. A humanoid one would be cool too.

Sculpey polymer. I shalt google.

Post by: Robin Ryuu on June 07, 2018, 04:20:15 PM
I was playing the special edition and doing the quests on Solstheim (P.S. I love the Elder Scrolls series).

I had posted a dragon armature a while back I believe (I'll post it again). The armature I used for the absol was very simplistic. The main wire is the spine/line of motion (though I used an extra inch or so with the head to make a support for the horn) and then I added two more wires to be each pair of legs.

The armature is simple to construct, but very important to get the proportions right before you start thinking about detailing the clay on top or else you'll have to take the clay off again to fix the wire (though it is useful to add on basic shapes of clay at some point to see if you have any wires sticking out past where you want the surface of the clay to be).

@robin I have always wondered if it would help in understanding proportions, thats good to know. great armature, looks like coat hanger wire! and well done on the toes, they look perfect :P

are you using any special sculpting tools or just random toothpicks, skewers, pens etc?

cool tip about the tin foil too.

@lego armatures can be as simple as you want, its just a base to hold everything up :)
Title: Re: Robin's Sketchbook
Post by: Robin Ryuu on June 07, 2018, 06:09:16 PM
 Thanks and it's rebar tie wire I had left over from one of the art projects I had for my 3D design class. Really you should use aluminum wire since it's easier to bend/cut, it's lighter, and you don't have to worry about rust. For the tools I do have a small set, but I'd like to get a more professional set since these are very basic.

Don't worry about how much you're a "master" of something. Like some of the others have said, you've already surpassed us in what you have created so far. No need to down yourself. Where you are now is just one step closer to where you wanna be. Art is kind of a journey like that. Maybe none of us will ever reach that goal we idealize, but the closer we get is part of the fun.

If it doesn't work out well when you bake it, at least you'll have all these nice photographs to prove what you've accomplished! I don't see any bits that look overly thin, so I don't think any breakages will happen.
Title: Re: Robin's Sketchbook
Post by: Robin Ryuu on June 07, 2018, 11:32:12 PM
The thinnest parts are the stands of fur that hang off the scruff between the front legs.

I think I may carefully transport it to my parents house tomorrow... Somehow. The numbers on the temperature dial on my apartment's stove are worn off so that may be problematic (also I'm terrified of cooking food with a normal stove/oven too so that doesn't help).

For now I think I'll just try to figure out how long it will need cooked.


Edit: Baking some test spheres to see if it might actually work.

Sounds like a good plan. I had a clay project in high school...I'm looking at the remains of it on my desk, lol. One broke while bone dry, one broke in the kiln, and the other one, someone dropped. I still love them, though. (They were three different swords from Claymore, each carved with the owner's symbol and made with a different handle.)

And here's a current project. Trying to give Jasper a finalized design.

(https://img00.deviantart.net/d46b/i/2018/171/c/a/jasper_wip_by_robinryuu-dcexwt1.jpg)

Still not quite sure on the design of her hairclip, which is her familiar/weapon summoning item. Also feel like her arms are too bare, but that may be because she's had long detached sleeves since her creation. And... trying to decide if she has a breastplate (armor) or just a shirt/binder.

Oh one other thing. I started with blocks of color and then added lines. It's something I picked up in my figure-drawing class and it helps me a ton.
Title: Re: Robin's Sketchbook
Post by: devola on June 20, 2018, 06:02:48 PM
Great work on the boots! Looks like a fiery tomboyish type of character, I dig the feeling the design evokes! For the arms/hands, I usually just throw on a bracer or fingerless gloves for these types of characters. It's a bit rule of cool since it doesn't always make sense but if you're looking to give them that fiery adventurer type of feeling you could look into that! Asymmetry is also fun to use here, having one arm bare and the other arm having a bunch of stuff can make her look very stylish as well. Looking forward to seeing the finished version!
Title: Re: Robin's Sketchbook
Post by: Robin Ryuu on June 20, 2018, 07:11:35 PM
Ah, thank you. I'm a fan of her design myself haha. I think I considered giving her bracers at one point. The asymmetrical idea is worth trying too, so I'll see what I come up with. (And dead on with the personality, glad it comes across.)

I can't tell if she's supposed to have a hand on that arm or not, so maybe that can help with the asymmetry? Put a glove on that hand?

I really shouldn't binge watch anything right now. I got a ton of stuff I want to get done before the fall semester starts. And the forum is still open, yep. It's a ghost town though.

What's Aoi Bungaku? And wait Robin has a website?
Yeah, I made a comic creation forum back before I wandered into MR. Sometimes I host collab projects over there, but most of the time it's empty.



And this is something way overdue to be finished for someone on DA. Still trying to figure out the whole digital painting thing.

One I made.

The absol or the tiny dragon? They haven't fallen apart so I'll take that as a good sign.


Also I'm having a bit of an art crisis. For some reason it's easier to draw more realistically than to stylize faces. I know because of my figure drawing class, but it feels like I've gotten worse at drawing not realistic stuff... Not super great at either but it bothers me. I know practice practice, but I can't draw much anymore because of my wrist issues. Or maybe I'm just lazy. Hard to say.

Anyways you guys over in the MR Fanart thread were making me jealous with having visual representations so I started yet another wip. I drew myself from memory and obviously it's not 100% true to life, but the one on the left is how I look (sorta) if anyone was curious.

How do hairdo?

I understand the feeling of having difficulty transitioning. I had gotten used to drawing anthro characters and it screwed me up a bit on drawing actual human legs, so maybe it's just that you've gotten into a habit of drawing and therefore thinking in terms of realism. Give yourself some time to work back into exaggerating style and I'm sure you'll be all right.

The self-portrait is really nice. It's somehow different than I expected. Maybe because I imagined you with dark hair? (Every other Robin I know, including my father, has dark hair).

Thank you. My hair color ranges from a dull copper in artificial light to a bright metallic copper if I go outside. It's not quite red and not quite brown, so copper it is. :P Also dunno if anyone looked that closely, or if it's even visible in that image, but I have central heterochromia (Gray/Brown).

Almost done with this drawing. Just need to shade the right one.

cool effect with the sun rays, and the stars just becoming visible (unless its a sunrise).

Very pretty Robin.
You weren't going to render them a little darker to match the sunset lighting? Your call on it was probably the smarter move though, I guess the straying away from total realism is appropriate for your style.

Still waiting for a Caesar dragon  :heart:  Draw Caesar vs Spyro ! ;)

I noticed some people have already pointed out the dragons should be darker but can't because you wouldn't see them well.

Another solution is to brighten the actual lightsource, I put it into grayscale so you could see the values more easily.  Generally people don't put the sun in the picture but if it is inside then the lightsource has to be the brightest part of the piece as it gives light (and color) to everything else.

Thanks guys. Though @MK, I don't mind critiques, but I do mind it when people edit my pieces to red-line and such without asking first. In any case thanks for the tip, but I've already given the piece to to the client and don't intend to work on it anymore.

The design is pretty cute! Do you just come up with these designs on a whim or do you draw inspiration from places? I'm trying to get into designing creatures/beasts of my own but I use features from realistic photographs of animals and sometimes it makes them look a little TOO real and not stylized enough.

For this one I used patterns and markings from some of my favorite animals without pulling too strongly from any specific one.

lovely pieces. I think it's great how you can get that personality captured in the eyes of animals.
also nice last one, the face is so peaceful looking. can't wait to see it finished. curious how you start colouring before finishing inking. that's something I've never tried, does it help?
Title: Re: Robin's Sketchbook and Other Art
Post by: Robin Ryuu on October 21, 2018, 10:23:15 AM
Haha, thanks. Drawing these animal eyes was basically the same as drawing human eyes, just with a little more attention to the basic form of the eye.

For the color... It's an old habit of mine. Sometimes I get tired of working on lines so I switch to color for a bit. It does have the practical use of helping me spot issues (proportion errors, missed lines, line darkness) in the line-work too though. But really it's down to preference.

looks great!
I think the image feels unnaturally cropped though, especially with the hand half out of the shot. otherwise very nicely done, great clothes and hair a feathers. perhaps he would have looked a bit better with some more muscle on the arms. the yellow on the belt area would look awesome if it was glowing though :P
will you add any shade to it ,or that's the finished piece?

Post by: MahluaandMilk on October 30, 2018, 05:00:30 PM
Your fur and scale textures are so nice, aaaaaaah. The transparent model was excellent, too. Super crisp.

Interesting to see some humans popping up too. Your softer style certainly adds something I don't see a lot of. I know from experience that drawing humans after drawing anthro characters for so long can throw a few things off, so if things look a little wonky for now, don't let it bother you. It gets better the more you keep drawing a fair mix of people and animals.

Looking forward to seeing your art when you post it. ^^


@Suupertramp
I think most of the issues come from that I was working with a client's character. They picked a flat colored halfbody. I could have picked a different pose to include the hand, but I was short on ideas.


@Mahlua
Transparent models? Yeah, it's been interesting to be drawing both, but I've been drawing a ton more than I used to so I'm learning.

Title: Re: Robin's Art
Post by: suuper-san on January 19, 2019, 08:31:06 AM
yeah new poses and tricky shots can be a pain. looks like you got the muscles pretty good. Taking a photo of yourself in difficult shots usually can help in working out foreshortening and muscle placement, even if you're drawing a different gender/body type.

both look great. The first one I like because it's like a character sheet and all the bits are separate :)

^^; I tend to color before finishing if I'm actively designing the character. Otherwise I refrain since I already know how they'll look with color. Another thing I've taken to is coloring directly after the sketch without any line art until I've satisfied with how the colors lay nest to one another without the distraction of black lines.

This guy for example. Just started on the line art.

Oh I actually started doing that too with the last few pieces, just sketching and then roughing in the colour to get the mood, and proceeding with the line art later. In a full painting, it kinda also helps me arranging everything nicely. Still need practice on values though.

Oh and here's a finished thing.

I like these a lot. I can't offer much more than compliments since I don't draw animals at this time. One improvement I am impressed by is the positioning of the eyes. In the one picture, the eyes seemed to face outward a bit, which is characteristic of herbivores.  In the other one, you made them face forward which is more characteristic of a carnivore.

^^ Thank you guys. Refs are your friends in any situation. If you have a good grasp of form it's not terribly hard to draw creatures.

thats amazing the depth that first image has despite being nothing but black silhouette and a face XD
I almost never colour unless I'm aiming at a finished piece.
I should really try more animals as well. so much to do, so little time (T_T)

I noticed that general art skill helps in learning new things. I almost only drew girls for nearly 10 years, but I'm fairly ok at drawing guys now (when I actually do draw them) with somewhat minimal effort compared.

nice. the eyes feel a lot more like say dog eyes than dragon eyes though. maybe the shape of the head seems a bit dog like.

Dragons have always been your strong point, but I don't think you have to be afraid of drawing people anymore. They look great, Robin. Glad to you see you keepin on the ball.
