Well it's been a slow week, in addition to being ill. I've been doing other life stuff :P

started using my android tablet for drawing again in the evenings when I don't feel like sitting up at my computer.

getting a little more confident and starting to finally push past a couple of walls in my head that I've had for years, which is awesome. Also working on colouring and shading which I hate, but starting to get a work flow so not as much hate as last time :P

despite the fact I didn't manage Inktober's the last few days I still did do drawing so It wasn't a complete washout

nothing special

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?

don't forget you can use the [img] tag to attach images directly :P

but great work. it looks like you've captured the characters nicely, and given them a bit more personality in the poses too.

it's something I think all artists go though at some point in some form or another.
fear of criticism
It depends what you mean by this, you mean negative criticism as in people saying "your work's rubbish", or "why are you an artist you suck", stuff like that? That's going to happen no matter how good you get, but remember you can't be criticized on what you don't show others. If you practice on your own you will still get better until you feel confident to show others your work. MangaRaiders is probably the best place to post your artwork as we are all beginners and are learning, so you most likely won't get that criticism that you're worrying about.
I worry I'll never be successful.
It is true that you do have to draw a certain amount to be successful. The amount varies from person to person, but you won't get better or get professional doing nothing. Do you have a specific thing in mind when you say you want to be a "manga artist"? having a concrete goal can help you to visualize the steps you need to make it.
My mom even critisizes me saying I don't draw enough to make it as an artist.
That's not criticism, that's advice right there. Even in a comment that seems negative you can find things that can help you. In this case, your mom has an image of the amount of art she thinks you need to produce to be successful. Not drawing for fear of criticism when one of those "criticisms" is that you dont draw enough is a bit of a vicious circle if you ask me.

ooooh very nice. I've had CD designs on my to-do list for years now haha. i think that line-less style is great for a cover, especially as it will often be viewed as a small icon on a screen as opposed to an actual CD cover size design.

good to see you around :)
nice sketches. the transition to digital can be a bit of a pain, much like touch typing you slow down in productivity for a while until you get the rhythm back. looking forward to seeing digital works in the future, and seeing how that story goes!

Tips and Tutorials / Re: Suuper's Tip Diary

well, I did indeed double post :P

Something that I noticed is that mostly a person is quite fluid in lots of axis - they are very rarely fully symmetrical in a pose for example. when drawing a pose, you can use compound angles to get a more natural feel for the character. here's a sketch of what I mean. You can keep in mind that for almost any position, the wrists, ankles etc are free and can still rotate, so bear in mind the motion of the character and how they would position themselves.

It's good to double check a pose in real life to make sure it works!

Tips and Tutorials / Suuper's Tip Diary
« on: October 18, 2018, 07:18:35 AM »
Since it will be literally forever before I do any tutorials that I have promised over the years, I figured I would do a compromise and just use this thread as a diary of all the (very) little tips and things that I notice, primarily about my own art (which may not be useful to you guys), but also on techniques and guidelines and stuff. hopefully it's useful to someone :P

As obviously I am still a big learner, I can't guarantee that what I say is correct, but it seems correct to me at the time :P

I'll attempt to keep it organised in the first post here but it probably won't amount to much :P
(not sure if to double post with my first tip or not)

Natural poses and compound angles

I cant get the hang of cool patterns I just randomly think of stuff. I guess I'm working on quality and productivity? forgive the vague answer as I'm sort of searching at the moment for something intangible.....

Day 17 late as usual :P
