Title: Jamie's sketchbook of fun.
Post by: The SlamJam on July 12, 2015, 02:39:25 PM

Currently not accepting requests!

ACCEPTING REQUESTS FOR A LIMITED TIME ONLY!

Hey everyone! So, I'm going to be upholding a rule for my sketchbook, that is: If you request anything to be drawn, i'll draw it and post it (No matter how terrible it turns out) within a day of seeing the request. I feel like user interaction is too methodical in the art threads (Which usually consist of: compliments, minor critiques and art posts).

Feel free to go off topic in here too, if you wish. I will set this topic to send e-mail alerts to my phone (If I can).

To open the thread, here is my latest sketch: Fan art for LWA

(http://i.imgur.com/nc8p6Yl.png)

Also: General Rules and guidelines for my Sketchbook thread

Completed:

Currently working on:
Can you draw twin brothers?

The one getting hugged from behind has cold eyes and wears rimless spectacles. He dresses casually in a white hoodie and white suit pants. His hood is down.

The other wears black, has somewhat impish looking eyes and his dark smile can easily be described as... provocative. He wears black, but the same clothes. His hood is up.

They are members of a... Syndicate constructed on their family name and the brother hugger is constantly made fun of because he has a nii-chan complex... yes... yes... a nii-chan complex... it's a onesided relationship, the cold one is jaded and does not value human life or his own existence. Despite that he never dies... claiming it's: "Plot Protection/Immunity."

Sorry, I feel really awkward coming up to someone and being like "Can you draw my character?!" but I think my character Churro would look really cute in your style... Do you mind if I request her? :blush:

Okay so I'm new to drawing manga and would like to see how you do at possibly improving the look of this character. Here's a couple sketches.

First off, my initial hand sketch, proportions are way off but the semi-creepy look of the eyes are close to what I'm after. This character is a protagonist-mentor but is intended to come across as a little suspicious looking.

(http://i50.photobucket.com/albums/f343/Cozo2005/100_2155.jpg) (http://s50.photobucket.com/user/Cozo2005/media/100_2155.jpg.html)

Second one was a recent drawing done digitally. Has less detail and the creepy look is pretty much gone but proportions felt a little better (total cop-out putting his arms behind his back hehe.

You definitely did a good job on making him kind of creepy.  Btw he looks like the guy who fouls people on purpose in Kuroko's Basketball.

You are versed well enough in the art of art.

I will ask for BL.

Can you draw twin brothers?

The one getting hugged from behind has cold eyes and wears rimless spectacles. He dresses casually in a white hoodie and white suit pants. His hood is down.

The other wears black, has somewhat impish looking eyes and his dark smile can easily be described as... provocative. He wears black, but the same clothes. His hood is up.

They are members of a... Syndicate constructed on their family name and the brother hugger is constantly made fun of because he has a nii-chan complex... yes... yes... a nii-chan complex... it's a onesided relationship, the cold one is jaded and does not value human life or his own existence. Despite that he never dies... claiming it's: "Plot Protection/Immunity."

I don't know how to draw them, so I'd like to see somebody else's interpretation. Thank you for your time... should you offer it to this old warrior.

I messaged Gelmra-Sensei and he didn't reply, so i started the sketch.

I could use some opinions on the sketch, bearing in mind it's super early in right now.

So, today i focused on the male torso in my anatomy studies, did a little bit of the arm.


This drawing is based on those studies, non-referenced to see how much i'd learned. I thought it'd be amusing to give it a more female face. lol

So i've only been doing anatomy since yesterday, but i'm feeling really comfortable doing the male torso without ref now. Here's 2 sketches without ref... Feedback would be really appreciated in my gallary, if i'm doing stuff anatomically wrong i'd really like to know!

we all draw differently, so i don't know how much this will help you, but i had a little time so i tried drawing a quick male body that is similar to your build. i find that i try not to use too many guidelines to overcomplicate my sketch...unless there is a need to draw out abs and all that detail, for me I try to just keep all my shapes simple.

So you can see my center line curve represents the stomach, I don't try to draw in many other lines there. especially if you know that you are going to be putting clothes on your character. when you sketch in too many lines, it starts to make it hard for you to really see the relationships between the proportions of the different parts of the body.

so I would simply first draw the torso, then the arms, and see how they look. ask myself if my arms are too long, etc. Then draw in the hips, legs, and so forth. it takes time to get an eye for it, but to me, when you have too many guidelines for the abdomen, the pecs, etc, it gets complicated.

sorry its rough but i hope this pic helps. the left is my initial sketch the right is some clothes layered on to show you how I would use the initial sketch. next would be to fill in detail and ink it.

I'm studying anatomy and you're trying to tell me not to draw anatomy? Wat. I appreciate the help, but i'm doing this to improve my foundations and really understand what i'm drawing. I can draw people like that, but it's quite a limiting view imo. I'm not doing these for the gesture, i'm not bothered if they're currently out of proportion a bit.. i'm just focusing on understanding the anatomy.


It's such a weird concept for someone who's trying to improve the technical/knowledge base of his foundation to be told "Nah m8". I already know how to draw the way you do, and i'm pushing myself further. I'm really not trying to come off as rude, and i appreciate the critique, but i disagree.

Post by: DAWM on August 07, 2015, 08:14:23 PM
Ah, sorry I don't mean it the way you took it. You said you were uncomfortable with the anatomy, my take on it was that sometimes it helps you simplify and focus only on the things you need to. I must have missed you saying you wanted to focus on anatomy (thought you were simply drawing male figures and characters)

in this case, since you are trying to get all the details and muscle tones, etc, maybe the only advice to give is to keep you lines as thin or light as possible on the early stages, so that as you layer on more detail, it won't clutter you too much. that might help :)

If you are up for the 20 sketches every 3 days, I'll cheer up on you. I'll not be able to participate myself but maybe some other people would like to do it as well...I think if you are trying to push your limits it is better to use real life reference and not draw from the head.

Quit putting words into other people's mouths when they are trying to help or providing a different view and a different perspective on anatomy and etc. He never said anything to steer you off the path you've chosen.

It's fine if you disagree, just say why and don't try to make other people feel like idiots just because they might've made a mistake or skimmed past details.

Let me guess: "I don't care, don't post in my gallery or I'll take this to the mods... I can say whatever I want because I'm the best and you don't know anything. Whooo."

Before you even posted, i messaged her because i realised i was horrible in my reply. Whatever personal issue you have with me should stay with yourself. I realise she is a much better artist than me. Here's proof: http://i.imgur.com/wxpRswI.png (http://i.imgur.com/wxpRswI.png)


I really don't understand why you keep trying to prove me wrong with everything. I disagreed with you in one thread, and you messaged me trying to start an argument (Proof: http://i.imgur.com/AIP1Rxz.png (http://i.imgur.com/AIP1Rxz.png)). I basically asked you to stop messaging me, and i had the topic locked because i didn't want it to go offtopic (There is a rule on MR somewhere about going off topic), and because the thread served it's purpose. I asked you to not message me because i knew we wouldn't agree. http://i.imgur.com/JfPlHu1.png (http://i.imgur.com/JfPlHu1.png)

I really don't see what i've done wrong here; I've never once said i'm good (Hell, I recently thought about quitting because of it), I understand i'm bad at art and i replied harshly yesterday in error; mostly because i mistook it for a personal attack due to lack of sleep and insecurity with skill.

Please do not derail my thread, Gelmra. I haven't done anything to you as far as i know.

I also feel this was uncalled for;

@Gelmura, you've been starting a lot of fights and causing a lot of problems like this again. I've been more than generous with you, giving you second and third chances, and now my patience is wearing thin. I've called you out on these things before and you should know I don't like repeating myself. I'm quite done with your nonsense, and this is your final warning. If you've got a problem with that, PM me. I don't want to see any more threads cluttered with your absurd arguments. I better not see you harassing Jamie or anybody else by PM trying to start fights either.

@Jamie and DAWM: Carry on, you guys did nothing wrong. Glad to see you two sorted it out civilly. :thumbsup:

Don't worry about it! You did nothing wrong, it's just 2 cranky users being stubborn (Me & Gelmra) :P


Nah, i've never used a mannequin. I've always just used photo reference when i do studies/draw, but i prefer just not using ref usually (It's just more fun that way for me). It's a bad habit, but ayy. I feel the need to clarify, that the unreferenced stuff i've posted here are drawn after i've been studying from reference to see how much i actually understood. Mindlessly copying is something i used to do and it meant i didn't learn anything :P


If i knew where to get things like these i'd get them in a heartbeat if i could!

Yeah I've mostly studied off of pictures too.  Whatever you find is working for you,  that's good just keep it up.  For me personally I noticed that my first sign of improvement wasn't that I could actually draw out correctly,  but that I could see when it was not right.  Keep up the good work!

I really like how you colored the nose. A lot of people end up making it look too harsh by using lines instead of shading. You may want to even thin or lighten the two lines on the sides of the nostrils to allow the good shading to show even more. Just my 2 cents :)

Thanks guys!


So last night i finalised the sketch design for Liru Lullaby, the main character in a Manga i'm going to be making. As a result, here's the sketches for her face (I've been trying to figure out how to draw her as fast as possible) Leaning towards the name "Whatever Witches", but it's still all up in the air.

How is Krita to work with, as a matter of curiosity?

I tried an early version of it a while back, but I didn't get very far with it - it seemed to lag really badly on my pc.

Been reworking Vlads character today... he's went from a romanian vampire to this:
(http://i.imgur.com/lxT461J.png)


V-Lad/Vlad. He's a proper lad, he'll hang about and get into mischief. Vlad however, is a vampire living a normal life. Will come into the Witch story as a supporting character, after discovering her one day. Style is much more appropriate for this character imo.

I saw this one a couple days ago, but I must have forgotten to comment
The details are nice, and the contrast is really nicely done.
The only issue I see is the nose, which seems a little too wide for her face
I redrew it in Photoshop to explain it better
If it sucks, never mind  :ninja:

Thank you for the critique DBN! I completely agree (I had fixed the nose slightly by just moving it in PS after posting here)
Looking back, the proportions on it are a complete mess. Eyes too far apart, nose is *censored*ed. Ears different heights/widths. It's all just bad! look at dat super forehead :L




As a side note;
Over the next year, i plan on actually making more finished pieces. I always just post progress shots then never complete anything :|

Haha~ I happy to know my arts can be of use to help you improve in many ways ahead.. And as I can see it now, you did improve a lot than I expected compared to the last drawings... Do not fret, guilty or worried about mistakes and bad drawings..IF you explore my gallery and others, we also have a large fair of troubles and errors along the way..

BUT, hey, you are experiencing the joy of drawing, it shows on your sketches and unfinished ones.. It's a good signal and the drawings is slowly adapting to your tastes also creativity to make it as your own universe... All I can say is, keep drawing and make it as your driving momentum to express what you want in your arts...

You may draw till head parts only BUT as you have fun and move the notch bit by bit, I wouldn't be surprise you have surpassed me way sooner as everyone does X33

Keep experimenting and always have fun, it's the main ingredient to keep yourself passion shines brightly... One more advice, I would recommend you to draw something out-of-the-expected to keep us surprised XDD It always work, go on ahead and try..

Again, I gratefully thank you for your credits and  I shall provide more whenever I can.. Take care and Happy New Year 2016, my dearest friend.

Im most annoyed that i did the hair completely wrong, but the nose is pretty drastically off.

As usual I'm always like a week late to comment XD
That's actually a great attempt. While the hair might not be as spiky as that in my pic, it certainly has its own style, which I'm guessing is what you were going for. I have a few tips for pulling off a more puffy-styled hair, but sadly that'll have to wait because I've been a little under the weather for the past few days :/
The nose itself is good, but the thing that I think ruins it is the giant nostril.
Keep up the great work :D

Well, if I can sneak in a stealth request under the radar to get you inspired, how about (Spins carnival wheel):

Your favorite Street Fighter Character?

And if you don't have a favorite, then why not try the character that would challenge you the most to draw? Like Oro:

 I believe that with or unwilling to draw, it's always nice to finish the design, so that you evolve faster.
 because if it is left incomplete drawings ends up just practicing some parts of the drawing,
 anatomy / scenario. the design was cool, facial expression girl's got a funny style, kkk.

Think im going to have to go back to fundamentals

I am permanently on fundamentals, i know how you feel :P
sometimes when i cant seem to get anywhere i try switching to a different skill, like buildings or backgrounds instead of people. that sort of helps to reset any bad habits i have picked up
that last sketch isnt bad for 10 mins, looks like your pressure is a bit over the place on the hair, try reducing the maximum and minimum line size, it might look a bit more even.

the face painting looks good, i have just started digitally paining faces, and its really hard to get it looking realistic, so well done :P

Here is an in progress shot of Panel 1 of my manga, I'm slowly but surely picking away at her anatomy.


Trying to keep the attitude of "I don't care that it's not perfect, as long as it looks good enough".
I think this is the attitude i need if im  going to put out anything.

Post by: Manimal on February 04, 2016, 09:26:22 PM
The second panel is a bit of a stiff and awkward frame. It's hard to tell without looking at the full page but I think framing the running figure more towards the center and zooming in a bit more would make it look more intense and...um direct if that's the right term. As it is there doesn't look like the character is in a hurry to get away from the very distant group. The character should be in the focal point but really it's hard to judge as there is too much blank space at it's current state to get a feel for the scene.

Is that the size of font you're going with for this? I think perhaps the font is too big and all the text should be centered. Also unless you are putting something in that blank space I think the second text bubble should be lower, or even with the first. It would be a more striking shot if it wasn't just front on like that. Maybe if the camera faced lower around the fire and was looking up if get what I'm saying, or a shot from above. That way I think it would leave more impact as an opening frame rather than just a head on view. You seem to really work on getting the anatomy right and that's fantastic, I guess you're in no rush to get it done? Your process is so different from mine so it's hard to critique but these are just a few things I noted to point out.

Nah, the font/size is just there as a placeholder for me.


Do you mean like this (Done in 3 point):

I also agree about the second panel, i'll just redo it completely. I am taking my time on the manga! :)
I plan on making the first panel very detailed, there will be stuff in a lot of the space.

Post by: Manimal on February 04, 2016, 09:58:11 PM
Yes I was thinking somewhere along those lines! I think if it's the first shot it should be something that looks dramatic and having the right angle will help add to that. Something like that already looks more striking to me. I don't want to sound like I'm telling you how to make your own comics, I'm just giving suggestions on what I think might look the best, but it's only what I think! Comic framing and stuff is something I'm looking into right now. If you have a variety of angles and such then the scenes will look a whole lot more dynamic and interesting. I think an opening scene with a character on a cross is a pretty grabbing way to start things off so it should start off with a striking shot you know.

Post by: DBNext on February 05, 2016, 06:43:51 AM
I completely agree with what Manimal said about the crucifying panel.
I think what you redrew looks better, but it still doesn't have a dynamic vibe.
I believe it would look better if the shot was zoomed in and the camera was lower to the ground. You don't have to reveal the entire body in the first panel. The important thing is to grab the reader at first. You can reveal the entire scenery in another panel right after it.
I took the liberty of redrawing it to better explain :D
The cross would look like this:
(https://fbcdn-sphotos-c-a.akamaihd.net/hphotos-ak-xaf1/v/t1.0-9/12651278_1116533588386706_983387336138468377_n.jpg?oh=7b23065fdedfbf82fb0a62b8cbc6d777&oe=57391F67&__gda__=1463325398_32f0c8147bd8c1c10d0a7f5ce9f189de)

As for the woman, you have to apply the rules of perspective to her, so her lower body will be the largest, and the rest of her will get smaller going up. The best way to draw her is to constraint her in a box that's under the same perspective, but here I rushed it a bit just to show you my idea.

Thank you all for the critiques, the page is coming along nicely now. I won't be posting every page to my sketchbook (gotta keep people wanting stuff, amiright /s).


How do you all feel about this as a better version of page 1? It's obviously no where near finished, but i'm actually thinking it's ok. Still not sure about crucifix scene.


Edit: Just realised i need to fix the crucifixion legs, they're together in one panel and far apart on another.

ALSO:


I am now looking for Raiders who would like to volunteer their services to me. I would like to have between 3-4 people who would be willing to view the blue sketches of each full page and tell me if it's working. You will also be sent a brief synopsis of the story, however i'll be keeping specifics to myself.

so basically, what i've posted above but without any ink at all.

Post by: DBNext on February 05, 2016, 12:27:34 PM
That's a definite improvement.
Some critiques:
The first 3 panels, while the feet and hand are dynamic and look good, it doesn't really flow right when reading.
When you imagine the scenario play out, from right to left for this example, first you'll see the feet, then the woman's face, then her hand.
Wouldn't it make for better flow and drama for us to see the limbs pinned down, and then we get to see her face?
Also, in terms of panel importance, I believe her face is the most important out of the 3 panels because it shows true emotion. So in my opinion, it would look better if her face got a bigger panel than the limbs.
Something I also noticed that can easily be fixed is the feet; in the small panel you show them closed together, but in the big panel they are far apart.

I like the big panel, the proportions of the body seem well drawn and the camera angle is dramatic. It's actually cases like this where I prefer symmetry lol.
A little tip for that panel, the one that shows the crucifying, I know that it's not finished yet but it would make it extra special if you added clouds in the background. Not just normal clouds, but ones that go in a spiral, with the center being the abdomen part of the woman.

I made a small sketch on my Note 1 to help get my point across, hopefully it helps you out:

What DBNext said! Again it's an improvement for sure and already looks more dramatic, but like above I think the arrangement of the three panels doesn't flow very well. I personally would do just one big shot of her on the cross for the first shot but this works as well to show some upcloses first and than the big picture. Either one is good really, it's still a striking opening image. I can't beat DBNext with his picture critiques so I'll just agree with what's been said.

well i'm an idiot :P

regarding the perspective, i think the circle light/lamp is a bit too low for the pole it is attached to. try drawing a cube first for the sphere, that often helps to work out where it attaches. plus the top of the pole would be more rounded where it joins the sphere, not flat. its hard to keep small details in perspective, especially if we are used to drawing it flat :P

i couldnt see very clearly but make sure your character also has similar perspective to the scene otherwise it looks wrong. because the character was so rough i couldnt just tell if you hadnt drawn in some of the lines or not.

otherwise good start. mark crilley has good videos to get people off in the right direction, i havnt seen his stuff for ages :P

Anyway, about the perspective. The stuff on the edges, more angled, looks better than the stuff in the middle. The stuff that you are sorta looking straight on to, even though you appear to be above it, doesn't really have any depth, feels odd.

The stuff in the middle is broken perspective. I just noticed because of your comment, but i accidentally moved my horizon line while drawing. It's now in the wrong place... Doh!

Hey everyone, thought i'd post what im working on right now; around 35 minutes in.
It's the first wip stage for the comic cover im working on, and yes the styles are meant to be quite contrasting.
The character on top will be sitting on a pile of skulls, which will fade away. She is holding a magical item which will be an integral part of the first arc. (As you can tell, whilst ive been away i've actually been working on the story, lmao).


The bottom character will be the protagonist, and is meant to be young/cheerful looking. The colour scheme of this illustration should represent the contrast, which will eventually be uploaded.
The title will be written vertically down the left side, which will be revealed once the cover is complete!


I have to leave to hand in coursework, then attend a 3 hour lecture, so will post more tonight.

you should post a finished picture here sometime, a lot of your work is WIPs and we dont get to see them finished!

The brush engine just felt kinda.. floaty, even with all the stabilizers disabled. Idk, it's not for me. The manga is in the dev writer section titled "Assassinate", it's gonna be a story about an Assassin who was taken as a small child and trained to kill. She has magic, cus lul.


I'm slowly making a ref sheet for her, this is it currently. The face on her cloth design was placeholder, i really didn't like it.

I'd be happy to >:3 It's been a few days but maybe it still helps. From what I see you already have some good basic understanding - what I notice is that you keep loosing track of the middle line. How do you go about sketching? I normally base of from something like this so I have something to find orientation while drawing the details.

(http://kringelkatze.de/wp-content/uploads/2017/07/sketch12.jpg)

On this figure for example you have drawn the head and chest looking to the left, and also the feet, but the legs and hip look like seen from the front. You could now adjust in two ways - either she is twisting her hip a bit to the front, which is a common kind of movement in mangas or of models. Did you know it's quite uncomfortable to stand in a way it looks good? I tried and all my abdominal muscles hurt lol
If that wasn't your intention, she would probarbly be standing with the main weight on the left leg, meaning the hip would be pushed upwards on the left and sink on the right. Naturally, the knee will follow that direction.

I very much like your proportions though. It's different to how I draw my figures so I hope it's not off.

Hi Gab, i'm so sorry i didn't see your reply! Thank you so much for what you said, it's 100% correct. I really struggled, and this crit just sorta made it click in my head. Today i've restarted learning figure drawing, so im hoping to stomp these issues out.


As for the question: I mainly start my sketches with a line of action, and build out from there.


Unrelated, here's a random dump of what ive been working on lately.


These gestures are completely awful because im trying to learn a new method. Please do not critique them, i know how bad they are. My usual gesture drawing aren't as bad.

Oh those body sketches are very good! I'm sure you're gonna get that sorted out in no time, your overall understanding is good and your reactions in the past show me that you are eager to learn (unlike some ppl I've seen here recently). I'm happy if I can provide help on your way :D So this time only one small thing to the character drawing:

It'S again a litte middle line issue, it seems to me you have trouble with the form of the hips. Which is a very difficult bodypart tbh, because it's where the torso ends and the legs start and you have to manage how they stick together. In this case, you might want to raise it on the one side and lower it on the other, for one because of the perspective, and it will give more dynamic to the movement she is in. Like this:

(http://kringelkatze.de/wp-content/uploads/2017/07/sketch16.jpg)

Okay maybe I've overdone it with the skirt a little, but I hope you see what I mean :3

You found my weakness! I cannot for the life of me get hips right on the first try, haha! I generally try to use contrapposto in my artwork, but i could be doing it better. Thank you very much, Gabryel. I will make sure to focus on ensuring the center lines are in place before continuing body drawings.
Title: Re: Jamie's sketchbook of fun.
Post by: Gabryel on July 23, 2017, 04:39:22 AM
If you are having trouble with hips, try practicing the last of these forms here:

(http://kitsuneko.kringelkatze.de/wp-content/uploads/sites/5/2017/06/basics5.jpg)

This is what I use as absolute base of my torso. If I have troubles getting it right intuitively, I still come back to setting it up with those blocks. Using action lines is a good technique but I also think it might be hard at times, because curves are much more difficult than blocky shapes, especially if you start bringing them to perspective .

DAFUG gab....as expect of women...such a soft way to learn

SLAM...listen to me bro...in order to learn how to draw the hips...YOU NEED TO FEEL IT

LET'S GO OUT AND ASK WOMEN OUTTHERE so we can touch their body.....feel all the curve from different women and take it to you heart.

Here is a small sneak peak for everyone: These are 2 sketched panel ideas for the introduction of ZAYN, the first Antagonist in my planned manga. I quite like how he's turning out! :)

ZAYN seems cool

What can he conjure? fire?
Title: Re: Jamie's sketchbook of fun.
Post by: MahluaandMilk on August 07, 2017, 06:14:30 PM
This isn't an art thing so much as a very minor writing thing: It feels like with these speech blocks that people are gossiping or talking about Zayn in a casual setting. That said, "It's rumored that he can conjure without even speaking" might sound more natural if you take out the word "even".

As for the paneling work itself, the weight of holding someone over you like that would likely cause the knees to be a little more bent, and the person being lifted would more likely be struggling to get their feet to the ground. The captive using their arm to try to pull away the person who is setting them on fire (I assume) would also seem more like a normal reaction (as opposed to hanging limply).
Title: Re: Jamie's sketchbook of fun.
Post by: The SlamJam on August 07, 2017, 08:53:27 PM
@Killer - thanks bud! :)


@Walter - Thank you, i hope people will actually like him (even if he's a villain). The concept of magic in this story essentially works like this: Magic is a tool for creation, allowing for the creation of a variety of combinations based from basic material. From this, a script (spell) would be created, usually by academics/scholars. At first, spells are very complex, usually quite a few pages long. Once a spell is created, the goal is to increase efficiency and shorten it down to a few basic words (I need to expand the system more). In history, i've set it that all spells must be spoken and adhere to rules. ZAYN however has capability to ignore some of the rules, which will be explained later.


@MahluaandMilk - The squares are placeholder, as is the text. I appreciate the critique though! :) The whole page is those two panels, and then a bottom panel with the MC and companions sitting around talking, so it's meant to be informal. As for the weight distribution, i will consider it. However, ZAYN is supposed to be unnaturally strong as a result of experimentation. Like, deceptively strong. Despite looking young, he's meant to be a powerhouse.


Do you have any resources for writing more natural speach? I'd appreciate it :)
Title: Re: Jamie's sketchbook of fun.
Post by: MahluaandMilk on August 07, 2017, 09:08:01 PM
I don't have any particular resources other than a friend of mine who is a published author and sometimes reviews my drafts. According to her, a good way to go about natural dialogue is to cut down on things like "that" when used in phrases like "The ball that I saw"--as when speaking informally, people will typically say "The ball I saw" instead.

Thank you! :) Yes it was Alice :D

I have been trying to get the gist of drawing backgrounds, as it's an essential skill for Manga Artists. Here's some progress, first one 1 hr, second 40 mins ish

I wanna start posting here more regularly again, i keep meaning to but i do get quite in my head about everything i draw then end up deleting it. My New Years Reso is gonna be about art, regularly posting it online and gitting gud. So, why not start early.

I've been practicing perspective in my free time lately to try and get a better grasp of figure drawing with 3d space in mind. Here's a couple of studies i posted to Discord. The figures aren't perfect by any means, but i feel like i've made a personal breakthrough in figure drawing. (I rely on the same poses wayy too often, this should reduce this).

(https://cdn.discordapp.com/attachments/357323320485609476/393984614961643521/unknown.png)

Outside of this, i rediscovered an issue i previously identified and then forgot about with my Wacom. I always feel a really big  disconnect when drawing, because i cant make accurate strokes. Precision mode fixes this. In this gif, after i flip the canvas i turn on precision mode, and you'll see how much easier it is to make accurate lines. If you use a Wacom, i highly recommend checking it out. https://imgur.com/C6sEo6E


I drew dese tings before i started going more ham on perspective, so they arent that great.

Thank you! Means a lot :D

I find with making grids, separating them by color really helps. I'm loving drawing using perspective lately, things feel like they're clicking a little for me lately.

Good work on those poses

Thank you Walter! :)


I am currently working on this, with plans to turn it into a full illustration complete by Thursday! :)

I love seeing the range of facial structures changing with the angles that you have. Seeing the hand sketches made me cringe for when I have to start doing those as well. xD

So in the discord today, Devola was doing 30-40 minute concept sketches with color. I'm dumb, he took longer than that... He's still *censored*ing insane, and it doesnt change the fact i cant do anythin gud in 30 minutes. I tried my best to do it but he's just so fast.

The arting intensifies. Cool to see you getting so productive man. And you're studying Pluto? Have you finished it?

Man, being able to draw like Urakawa sensei would be a dream come true. An impossible dream. It's pretty hard not to call his manga 'novels with pictures'. It's amazing how much dialogue and how much emotion he draws. Such long, engrossing narratives. Monster I shall never forget. 20th Century Boys too.

I wasnt super happy with this, but whatevs. super rough but i really cba line arting. Also hand hiding to the extreme, was v lazy there. Not sure why, tired.

People like to give me *censored* for never finishing art, but here's a small glimpse into why. For this character, Jello gave me a small brief to work with. The character is to fit into the magical girl theme that he's doing, but not a typical/normal magical girl. She's to be older, a bit busty and to use an unusual form of magic as her weapon. She's to be a bit "evilish" her approach to everything, but still have the same goals as the magical girls.


From this, this was my first attempt, which didn't meet all the criteria (personality stuff we discussed).

From here, i wasnt happy with what i did. So today, i re-started.


On the viewer left side, is the current version im working on. towards the right are the iterations, as you continue right the older they get.

so basically, as i continue a drawing i get so focused on fixing little mistakes that i lose the essence and feel of the original pose. I lose all the flow of it, and it gets even stiffer than it originally was. FeelsBadMan

It can have that effect on people. But school is always important, so don't feel bad for prioritizing it. Just as long as you don't actually give up on your artwork, it hasn't beaten you.

Yeaup. School is super important so it's okay to let it get in it's licks while it can.

I need to learn to draw eyes like yours.

Nice sketches there.

It's neat to see how the sketches get transformed into the finished product.
I like your colouring there, and the simple shading. Easy to look at.  :thumbsup:

I'm still experimenting, and it might not be obvious from what ive shown, but im doing things differently with the construction.

Collapsing the jaw at a different place, experimenting with the average size of hair strands (in the straight on view they're quite bigger than i usually sketch for stuff i dont show here), making the eyes considerably bigger, changing how i do eyebrows and their relative positions for expression compared to old, etc. It's still early days, but eventually the difference should be noticeable i hope.

Looking good slam, I like your aqua colouring. For moe, try adjusting the proportions to be slightly more baby like (i.e: increase size of the head and make the jaw smaller) that can help out. Also I hated Uni so feel free to vent whenever.

great sketches there., i love the first and second ones the most, especially the first with all the details and items :P

regarding the WIP, i think you've captured the texture of the clothing really well so far. I think the nose might be a little large on the face maybe. the left upper arm feels a tad short too. a bit too early in to comment on an anything else.
