To fix you need to put the link in the Image Tab, which is under the italicised tab

like so,

img]you_picture's_url_link[/img]

However, I don't think this site can support images from Flickr. :hmm:


Never mind, you got it working. Great job! :thumbsup:

BUT, since your pictures are so huge, you are going to make a mile long post so its also recommended to use Spoilers (the SP button) all you do is highlight the whole {Img}bleh{/img} line and then just click the SP button

Are you drawing the head first? The reason I say that is because a lot of people start with the head and then add the body. Do the opposite, body then head.  Or follow the 6 or 7 head ratio for the overall size. I think you are at 4 head when it should be 6 or 7.  So basically your proportions are off. Once you get that figured out, we can help with dynamic poses and working on drawing hands and feet.

welcome to MR!
although it can be hard at first, try and draw the hands and feet of your characters when you have the space. the practice will help you to get better at it :P

i like the facial expressions on your characters though, especially the details on the eyes :P
Title: Re: eukocar's art
Post by: legomaestro on May 25, 2017, 02:25:26 PM
The characters look pretty cute indeed. And yus, hands and feet are forever brutal. I just squiggle them, really, but yes try to draw them when you can.
Title: Re: eukocar's art
Post by: MahluaandMilk on May 28, 2017, 11:46:23 PM
And yus, hands and feet are forever brutal.
Circles/spheres, triangles/pyramids, cylinders/rectangles, and trapezoids/prisms. Once you can start breaking them down into those, they get a little easier to deal with. I'm sure you'll get them looking as good as your facial expressions with a little elbow grease.

i am working on a large drawing but  i keep screwing the hands up so i took a small break.

Sometimes it's nice to take your time on a work, and other times you get so caught up in what takes up your time that when you take a break and come back you find that everything looks like crap (which happens to me more often than I'd like).

But yes, random sketches of everyday things is a really good way to expand your skills, and you can really learn a lot. You only have to look at Lego's progress for evidence of that ::)

The skirt itself looks okay, but the form it's attached to...does it even have a rib cage? It looks like a telephone pole, in a way.

But, then again, just working on fabric and clothing and how all that works is hard enough without trying to throw in anatomy, so it doesn't really matter. The folds towards the belt look all right, but the ones above it could probably be simplified.

From here, it's time to do it over and over until it looks how you want it to.
Title: Re: eukocar's art
Post by: legomaestro on June 28, 2017, 06:43:27 PM
The animation turned out pretty well! And yeah, go with Movie Maker for now - I really believe in roughing it a little before you hunt after some fancy software to improve your drawing.

It`d be nice to see other hairstyles or some with different shading too. Like the latest drawing on the skirt - but I have nothing helpful to critique there.

Haha, eeyup. I'd recognize that Nozomu Tamaki style anywhere. Always got a soft finish somehow, and you captured it well. I commend you for doing it without overlayering and tracing. A word of advice that may help you next time is to draw it facing the opposite direction, as in, the reference picture facing right and you draw it the same, except facing left. It challenges the brain more and helps you learn the shapes that go into it more.

i like the texture on the hair, it gives it a lot of detail! keep it up :)
how many layers do you use when working? have you ever used alpha-lock or image-clipping (or the equivalent in whatever program)?. both are useful for adding extra detail to a layer without altering it.
and i know what you mean about getting used to the speed of a new PC :P

Keep the sketches coming. Also, try to add some weight to your lines. That’s what people tell me  :tongue:

I know these are jus sketches but, use the mirror function to catch any errors.
Title: Re: eukocar's art
Post by: eukocar on November 10, 2017, 11:51:08 AM
the mirror function?
Title: Re: eukocar's art
Post by: devola on November 11, 2017, 06:40:14 AM
I think Forlorn is referring to canvas flipping. Most art programs have a function that's usually titled something like "flip horizontal" or "flip vertical", AKA mirroring. If you're using Clip Studio, it's under the view tab, doing this lets you view a mirrored version of your work to make sure you're balancing your picture and not skewing too much towards one side.

It's a pretty infamous problem that newer artists tend to have, I still have issues with this myself. Flipping your canvas can be a really good way to check and avoid this issue.
Title: Re: eukocar's art
Post by: suuper-san on November 21, 2017, 08:46:03 AM
yep the old mirror flip always helps. sometimes viewing your image upsidedown also has a similar effect, but that a lot stranger :P

i like the eyes on the latest one, and a bit of a cute costume going on there too. i noticed though that the left hand looks like a right hand, because the thumb has  a line chopping it off from the rest of the hand, and you wouldnt see the nails as well.  if its deliberate then fine, but i hope you dont mind if i made a little re-draw of what i think is better :P

Title: Re: eukocar's art
Post by: MahluaandMilk on May 11, 2018, 09:09:38 PM
The color vibrancy and blending looks great! I'd just point out that a good thing to keep in mind at all times is the direction and type of light source. Where is it coming from and how does it interact with the other colors? On a deeper level, you could ask things like how the material would absorb or reflect (or refract) the light that's hitting it. All that is pretty advanced stuff, but it looks like you're starting to touch on it by natural observation, so I figured it wouldn't hurt to mention it.

Time for a piece varies a lot for artists lol, as well as quality per time, but that comes with experience (I hope XD). 2 hours is pretty much the longest I can do, normally its 10 mins :P

well done on forcing yourself to draw the hands! Getting yourself past a tough spot is a good skill to have. it looks like your eyes and hair are your best parts at the moment. the shine in the hair on the first one didn't go unnoticed!
while the hands/fingers do look a little wonky, they are actually close to being correct on the top one. probably the fingers are too long for the second one though, or the palm is too small. sometimes if i'm not sure how to draw the hands or something, i draw it separately first then redraw it in the right place once I know what I am doing :P

you'll hate me for this lol
Don't forget to draw the feet too!!!!

Pretty solid for some speed drawings. Does learning how to speed draw have any practical benefits in terms of improving one's art? I would love to know.
Title: Re: eukocar's art
Post by: suuper-san on August 01, 2018, 10:21:11 AM
@fro I completely believe it does, in moderation. Its difficult to gauge what exactly makes you improve, but I think it has to be a mix of everything, short, mid and long pieces. when I draw INSANELY fast i often drop to "instinctive", whether copying or creating. this helps to identify what my main problems are. I believe in focused studies at the moment, drawing lots of hands or feet separately as opposed to longer full body studies, but that doesnt mean they dont have their place. As you gain experience you sort of learn whats your next step and whats best for you I think.
Title: Re: eukocar's art
Post by: Coach Fro on August 01, 2018, 09:58:56 PM
Understood. I figure it would be something similar to a writing sprint, in which one writes as much they can within a time limit. Sure it can be draining at times, but I think the importance of it all is to help increase productivity by forcing the artist or writer to let loose on the page without worrying about being perfect, which in turn, can encourage them to apply similar techniques in their more focused projects I guess.
Title: Re: eukocar's art
Post by: devola on August 02, 2018, 12:16:46 AM
A big part as well is to enjoy what you do. Practice is great and all but burn out is a real thing and everyone goes through it to some degree for a variety of reasons. I think trying to balance productive technical work with just drawing for the sake of drawing is something that can help a lot in that regard!

That being said, it's a good start Eukocar, I definitely see improvement over your work from a few months back. Keep up the good pace!

Mwaha! You say 'just some ribbons' But i will steal the heck out of these designs. You have no idea how important a good ribbon/frill is in an outfit to make someone kawaii. Good stuff euko!

This is a great idea, as you don't always think of what to do at the time of drawing a sketch, but you think "oh I could have drawn ribbons" and go back and do it to a bunch of sketches later. I'm doing a similar sort of thing with my sketches to add extra details.

and nice ribbons! great to see a bunch of different types, and looking forward to seeing them on your drawings in the future!!!
remember that you can have patterns/stripes etc, or frills/lace etc on the ribbons themselves for an extra layer of detail.
