MR Pub / New phone conundrum
« on: September 25, 2017, 02:35:31 AM »
Why is it so hard choosing a new mobile phone at upgrade time!!

I have an xperia xa which isn't the best but makes do (when it's not locking up or crashing on me)

I like the look of the LG stylus 3 as it has a stylus and productivity apps plus a bigger screen for my anime fix and may have some neat little apps to help with my drawing.

But I'm also interested in a few others (xperia xa1, Motorola g5 and galaxy j3)

Anyone have experience with these phones and can put me off them?  Google doesn't give me as in depth reviews as I'd like :(

MR Pub / Your current hobbies/interests
« on: June 21, 2017, 09:56:03 AM »
I was thinking about my life and not having much time (or inclination) to sit down and Draw and it got me to thinking about where my time actually goes!

now i am married with 2 young children and my wife and I both work (i do the normal 9-5, she does 5:30-10 ish most days) so a lot of time is taken up with this.

I've also come to the realization that i go through Phases with my hobbies! and have an fair number of things that peak my interest!

Currently i am on a miniatures painting binge. I play X wing miniatures game and cant stand having the ships all painted the same as everyone elses! (i have about 5 repaints in progress at the moment) i also love Writing (sci-fi mainly but keep loosing my plans etc) love watching Anime, Building Lego, Cycling, Drawing and gaming.

Manga Artists Tools / Mannequins
« on: May 05, 2017, 04:34:27 AM »
I'm looking at getting a mannequin to help me with posing and proportions.

I've seen 2 of them that are intriguing to me (the female form ones but will get male ones shortly)

one being the Owfeel Action Female Figure

and the other S-H Figuarts Body chan Solid black

has anyone got any history/reviews on these? i am drawn towards the S.H. Figuarts one but will need to wait for the price to drop a bit (just so my wife doesn't go spare)

Help me!!

I'm getting back into this after a rather long absence.

i feel like im ok with some of the basics (eye placement, styles etc) but the one thing i cant get my head around is hand size!!

i've tried to draw the characters right hand holding a cupcake (between thumbtips and fingertips) and just cannot get the sizing right! any and all critique is welcome as i really want to get back into this properly.

Hi everyone.

My name is Ciaran and I am a manga/anime addict.

I've drawn a bit for a number of years but never sat and actually did more than sketch.

I'm trying to take my art a little more seriously and need help and guidance.

Anything you want to know about me then shoot, I'm happy to answer almost all your questions
