I'm glad ya'll liked that one. (Yes I'm from Texas)

This is concept art for a Patreon/Kickstarter support reward. Katherine's Golden Skin (Swimsuit). The swords are meant to rotate around her slowly. I'm also playing with the art style. The same shading technique, but I'm just using line more. I developed the previous art style before I could get outlines in game.

Pretty crazy that you can do all that with spray paint, I would have never imagined.

Is it just me or are none of those images visible?

Obviously, it's not just you. *sighs* I just don't have a good image hosting site anymore. *shrugs* Thought the last ones I posted were at least visible.

I've recently found that Discord is an amazing host. Just make a server for yourself and then post pictures in there. Then you can just use the url to embed it here.

I never noticed. Is it here or other places where people name their galleries?

I wish you gave examples. I know it's horrible but it would give good insight.

You'll see artist do this everywhere. Even on the fanart boards for video game forums

Collaboration (Art Exchange) / Re: Cover Art Design Help
« on: February 10, 2018, 04:16:33 PM »
Working with Cover Art is more of a compositional thing than drawing skill.

When we're thinking about composition, we're looking at very very simple elements of looking at a picture and what the eye does. The center is the focus point (or the first point), then the eye will follow where lines on the page lead them. Then we're paying attention to how clashing/mixing colors make it easier or more difficult to see what you want them to see.

Compositionally, your covers are very good, I wanna get that out there.

So even without knowing the exact specifics of this project this cover gives me a good impression of what to expect. There's a lot of vertical lines for the eyes to follow. Obviously you'll follow her body then then letters, and you break up that monotony with a fun diagonal blue value.

You've got a career in design ahead of you.

The english text is mundane, and that's perfect because it forces us to imagine. "How could someone write a story about a statement like that? This'll be fun to see." That's generally what rings in your head.

You've got a bright background, and overall high-key characters. It was smart to make the text black. The only concern is it blends with some of the shadows on the characters. So there are letters that are easier to read than others.

What I would do in this situation, is add a glow effect to letters, or that white outlining, you have the last cover. That way each letter would have an equally bright background behind them. This would also open doors to use other colors like a darker blue, purple or green.

Also, this picture feels ice cold. And that's good. Because they're at a snowy cold mountain, but what's happening is you're using all cold colors in this picture. Blue and Greens. So if you wanted to make like a picture of hell with all the fire and stuff you would use mostly, orange, red, and yellow and it would give the impression that the picture is very hot.

Also in this picture the focus point is on the character's face, whereas I think you want it to be more on the mountain. One way to help do this is like you've done and have a character look directly at the mountain. The eye will follow the character's eye in order to see what they're looking at. You could also bring the mountain to the center and put the words on top to fill that space, but that might require you to push the characters down farther and crop them more. Or push them back out of the foreground and into the middle-ground if you wanted to avoid cropping them.

Hopefully that helps your future cover work. I would try and focus on rendering the characters better. I can tell you got the skill for it. Even within the boundaries of your very fun style, there's still room to improve.

It's 30 degrees F outside rn.

I want to go walk home, but I want to keep my fingers.

It's a conflict of interests.

General Discussion / Humble Artists

I kinda noticed some of the best artists here have very humble names for their threads, and beginners have explosive names.


"Wanna see some of my little doodles?"

"Behold the Amazing Gallery of the Greatest Artist!"

I'm not trying to call people out because I did this too when I was getting started. And I do this stuff now Why do we do this? We're so proud when we're just getting started, and then so humble once we're actually doing something great.

Is this because we got beat down so much along the way? Are we sick of the drawing by the time we're finished with it because it took so long? I feel like it's a combination, probably some lean more towards one than the other. I remember my professor in Drawing 1 called my final project a "great under-drawing" as if I spent 18 hours laying down the guidelines for a drawing.

Pablo Picasso said "Every child is an artist. The problem is how to remain an artist once he grows up."

There's something beautiful about this statement. My child self painted all the time, but would I have ever touched paint again if Painting I & II wasn't a prerequisite for my major? The fear of drawing a bad drawing is something we don't have as children, or even as beginners.

Sometimes I find the work of beginners more fun to look at. Because you can see the ambition and emotions in spite of certain skills not being there.
