You have a wonderful grasp with coloring and shading! But if I had to say anything, it's that the standing poses look quite stiff.

Dev, that's super gross. Like, at least you warned us about NSFW for the dress-lady drawing.
But the HUGGING?
You're sick.

I kid. Great as always to see your art again after over a month of being radio silent. Keep up the color experimentation! With the way you already draw, that really ought to add levels to it.

You guys might need to open those images in a new tab because they're scanned and therefore large as hell.

Y'all thought I was dead. Hah. HAH. Nah, I'm still here.
Hi again, I've been super MIA lately. I'll make up for it in an art dump.

Grapple Pilot Beatrix, Titanfall 2

PLAYERUNKNOWN's Battlegrounds fighter, PUBG

Mavyre Krinoa, my own Fire mage, D&D

Sergeant Scully, a grunt OC from a friend, Titanfall 2

Terezi Pyrope, Homestuck (sue me I know.)

Pose and consistency practice
Alkeya Nottie, another one of my own characters, Homestuck

Stuff happens and you forget about things. At least I drew in between, yeah?

I tried the technique you use for heads and sure enough, it made it easier for me.
I think the other takeaway from it though is that now I know where to put the ears every time.

The pupils (and, y'know, the blood spattered everywhere) really sell her brutality in the right picture.

You can design your own guns with sheer creativity, or from inspiration from pre-existing models, but I believe one of the more important things in doing so is knowing
1. how a firearm functions
2. the parts of a firearm

You can condense making your own guns into making sure the pistol has a handful of things:
-a grip
-a slide

One way to make yourself set it apart is by knowing what you want to make of it.
When you think of "sleek," you imagine rounder shapes and smooth design overall.
Meanwhile, when you look at something like a "hand cannon," you imagine something big, bulky, and heavy. It looks cumbersome, and feels heavy to hold.

(Please bear with me, tutorials are a new thing for me.)

Depends on what you're asking for.
Not real as in
-fake? (ie airsoft or nerf)
-futuristic? (ie a plasma rifle)
-rickety and makeshift? (thrown together out of disposable parts)

or just different?

@Devola I made an extremely quick, extremely basic tutorial in the appropriate thread.

@Rusted_Gear All from reference. Titanfall armor is very complicated but looks very nice regardless. I'll post as I go though. :thumbsup:

Tips and Tutorials / Guns! [Pistols]

I am making these to help out anyone that's trying to learn how to draw firearms. As of the time I write this, I am terrible at tutorials and have no clue for how far I want this to go, but I'll do my best.

What is a pistol?

(Credit to Andrew Helenek and Puffin's "Orochi" on Steam)

According to google, a pistol is "a small firearm designed to be held in one hand." Basically, they're smaller shooty-shooty devices and can be easily used even with only one hand.
For the sake of simplicity, there are two types of pistols: semi-automatics, and revolvers. The easiest way to differentiate them from each other is that revolvers are the things that cowboys use at high noon.
This post will cover semi-automatics.

Exhibit A. This is a Glock-type pistol, and is one of the most simple to draw.

I say this is the most simple because the slide (see the image below) is just a long box with many smaller boxes within it. The grip is a bit more complex, but still very possible.

I've highlighted the most basic parts of the pistol here, but a quick Google-image search of "parts of a handgun" might do more justice. (Please excuse my handwriting.)

From left to right
1. The two most basic shapes to structure a pistol is 2 rectangles. One is flat and long, the other is near the end and slanted slightly away.
2. Add a triangle to the back of the grip-rectangle. Put lines where the trigger guard should be, and make a little curve for the trigger. Put a line about 1/3 up from the bottom of the long rectangle.
3. Detail the gun. Round out the triangle to make the grip look more comfortable. The ejection port should be about right above the trigger.

Drawing at different angles involves the same process, but taking into account perspective. Tilt the rectangles together, but the structure should remain the same, as shown.

Practicing the most simple iterations of guns is good practice for getting the foundation for more complicated designs, because once you have the basics, it's all just a matter of adding details.

There are thousands of pistols in our world, so I CANNOT stress this enough:
DRAWING FROM REFERENCE IS NOT CHEATING. Since there are so many different pistols, all you need to do is pick one you like and find a reference for it, then try to draw it. Glocks and Colts may have the same basic shape, but they have a huge number of differences in details.
If you think professionals make guns/mechanical creations from memory, you're crazy.

Devola I am now thinking about making a tutorial on some guns thanks to you.
I guess you'll be seeing it in the tips/trick area, idk.

I'd take a tablet/pen over a trackpad any day. Trackpads are the worst.

@Gabryel Thank you! I can give some tips on guns if you ever decide to get into it. Practicing nothing but guns for a few years does that.

@Mohadis1 Just a little bit.
