thanks :)
hopefully it'll all settle down and everything will go back to normal.

yeah I mean for years I've been using without realising the original intended purpose was what I meant.

oh as a side note I will continue with my art requests and when I get back to it, the VN, regardless of my presence here. PM me if you want a quick reply as I don't check discord much. I work well with instructions, so telling me "hey can you fix XYZ" is much more effective than "use your initiative"

haha no problem it happens to all of us!
well I spend most of my time reading light novels, not tutorials, so I'm afraid my Japanese is wasted in that regard XD
yeah I definitely need to try out more stuff. animals, backgrounds, comics and paneling; the list is infinite :P

just to requote myself, I'll be not on MR very much in the next few weeks/months, I've become extra busy lately.
heres my last art post for a while.
86/1000 hands

PS I just discovered the airbrush in GIMP and I think i can shade now lol

well as it happens I'm going to take a break from MR (and most of the internet and Youtube time wasting) for a bit. not a 100% absence, but spending a lot less time regularly.

I'm temporarily back at my old job to help out during a staff shortage so I'm losing 2 days a week of drawing and stuff, and so other stuff needs attention now. Especially as I'm also putting a bit more effort into my DA and Youtube to try and earn some pocket money I just dont have much spare time now. It wont be forever and I'll answer to any PMs.

Also got a holiday coming up anyway so for that as well I wont be here.
Just so you know (T_T)/

edit: anyone else notice from the first post this topic isn't meant for posting when you're coming or leaving?

thanks for your comment! However I'm curious what led you to think I draw from how-to-draw books? Since I actually avoid them quite strongly, almost from the very beginning when I started to draw. I mostly do draw from photo references (internet and my own), and also from manga pages/illustrations that I have saved from when I was reading them, to see how other artists stylize their work and also to learn their style.

(Were you looking at my early work and not the later pages? You quoted a really old comment of mine!!)

Thanks very much for the links, I will have a look, especially as I can read Japanese I do occasionally see the odd Japanese tutorial and I love them for their straight to the point-ness.
That being said I hardly look at any tutorials anyway, I like figuring out my own stuff from my own observations, so there's nothing that I really need/want a tutorial on, other than how to use my software properly XD
I'm actually exploring multiple styles which is why my work always looks different, I don't know what sort of style I want as a "main" style so I'm just building up art skill until I make that decision.

here's a page of sketches. Instead of doing a whole page of one stage (ie sketching/inking/colouring) I tried to have a row of each, with more of the sketchy top ones. The results were basically a failure, in that I wasn't able to build up a rhythm for my work as the attitude and processing of each stage of drawing was different.
Also GIMP didn't like having so many large layers for when I was doing the colouring and shading, and the lag was quite annoying here and there. So I won't be doing a mixed page like this again. Each individual piece was basically alright though.
Took just over an hour.


Also, first time ever doing dark clothes maybe I think haha.

Yeah after school/college/uni ends one often finds themselves in the grind of life, and it's hard to find that balance between work and hobby, especially if you have high rent or cost of living.
Looking forward to having you around and seeing any art you've done.

Fascinating selection XD.
Any reason behind the choice?

@Dev thanks, and you should totally try it. it would be awesome to have another raider on the 1000x regimes. whats great is that regardless of your skill level, you do so much you can't help but improve XD

heres some coloured pieces I did a few days ago. most are the few old linearts from years ago that were just about worth colouring. also my inking speed for linearts increased by about 20% over 15 pieces by simply trying "to go faster"

also please tell me you recognise the top left character. my pride will hurt if you dont :P


edit: some sketches, from old head/face WIPs
took 56 minutes for the first page and 57 minutes for the second page. not the first time that my times have been the same or similar.

I'm totally out of the anime loop at the moment. I did try drawing to anime which worked well enough, but now I'm trying to push my art productivity to the maximum so all distractions got cut.

That being said I'm still catching up with Meitantei Conan but barely an episode a day now.

some hand copies, mine again. probably need to do some finger studies first because I'm simplifying the hand too much when I draw.

tried a page of double the WIP count to see how it affects productivity. I drew about 10% faster, which goes to show bulk output is really my calling.
Also figured out why I'm avoiding coloured works so much, simply because it's working with less images. In an hour I can colour 4 linearts, or finish sketching 24 WIPs, so I naturally favour the sketching because there is more variety. Gotta get over that @_@ Or learn to colour even faster lol

I never ever remember how many pounds are in a stone so I agree with you on that one XD

I like Celsius just because you know anything negative is cold XD
honestly as a "scientist" I prefer Kelvin because 0 is 0.
I was taught a quick basic conversion for C to F, double and add 30. you get close enough for most things.
