Been considering binge-watching Bleach for the 6th time. Somebody stop me. I got more important things to do.

Can you, like, binge watch Aoi Bungaku with me? (seinen) otherwise go watch Death note again please. :l
Random Q do you still have your website with artists/writers? Been ages

Thanks to Ecchiworld I gained the subtitle Ms. Fanservice, so we'll go with that.

Everything has a learning curve, and I'm still trying to figure out about values. It's weird to me that people start in black and white, because in my eyes, colors interact differently and can't be boiled down to just "values". You can ask anyone in the discord group I'm in (SlamJam, Devola, Flames, etc.): when I'm presented with new fundamental information, I get irate.I don't have the best reaction to learning things, which doesn't help my laziness.

You're also actually going and creating stuff, which is an amazing thing in its own right. Never downplay just how powerful the mere act of creation can be. And here you are doing it.

Thankyou Milk, but I prefer to imagine myself beside you and the rest here on the journey to learn, as you see I've still got more to learn myself. Maybe you're lazy but there's nothing written saying you'll stay that way, I believe once a few hurdles are crossed you'll see a massive boost in your attitude towards growth.  :biggrin:

Next commision out the way, Kaneki next  :heart:

Definite improvement since we worked together. I have a couple pieces of advice for your future drawings and they work together. First off is to avoid using black/gray for your shadows, even on whites. Shadows almost always the the most saturated areas of color. In skin if you remove the saturation in shadows the effect will always look a bit corpse-like. Second is to keep the environment's color and the color(s) of the light in mind when you're working on the character(s). Surfaces will almost always reflect their color onto the surfaces around them. They are being surrounded by so much green, yet his coat and shadows are very blue.

Two little things I noticed that I think may have just been missed are that Kenpachi's sword guard and Yachiru's badge are still flat color.

 :o Gotchya!  :blush:
Couldn't find a suitable emote, I'm happy you've checked my work out and pointed out the areas for improvement, I had a hard time with lighting in this, the advice you gave is really what I needed to hear. Robin to the rescue once more eh ;) just like old times. I'll keep you and your advice in mind in my future pieces. Thanks again Ryuu

Saturated colours for shadows - avoid greys/blacks.
Acknowledge the environmental effects on ambient lighting.

Thanks again Lego haha.

And we'll find out soon! But before that, I got detoured by a commission from Fortis.

Here is his character Anaste, the Dark Angel of Galifor rendered and designed by yours truly.


I will be accepting requests again after a short break, join our Discord or keep tabs here to see when!
Now, I need to repay Lego with some MR fanart...

You need to post some more epic stuff like this, with wings too! I love this

LOL you're very kind, and you'd be better than me for sure. Takes me a while to grasp things I believe.

Maybe one day Miss Lazy Butt will become miss (I don't have an alternative "butt" name so) awesome. You'll impress yourself with your progress and will do your own awesome bleach fan art! (Which btw tag me in, if it's possible to do here! Bleach ftw)

lol That dragon there is Keith, one of my characters, and he's a grump. He would probably eat you. (He did threaten to bite off Goji's hand a while back...) But I'm glad you like it.

Keith is a handsome boy.
 >:( Hm, well Keith won't get any dragon food if he eats me so let him know

Almost spat my cereal out.
"Corin's a girl?!"

Reads almost legible "Gender bend" at the bottom.

"Oh sh*T" I said.

So when I first started here (in 2015, I think?)

Me and a few others managed to get a team of writers and artists (hahaha, messy as it was it went better than we thought!) together and we all agreed on a plot, to which the artists (such as myself) had to draw char designs.

This is where I was at around 2014/15 (whenever it was I joined here)

Came across the photo on an old facebook archive and thought what better way to honour this picture than to put it here, where it all started.  :heart:

Kind of you to pass on the credit. I've spent some time away from here but I remember you now. :) Will remind myself to keep an eye on your progress, Mahlua  :sheep:

I was playing the special edition and doing the quests on Solstheim (P.S. I love the Elder Scrolls series).

I had posted a dragon armature a while back I believe (I'll post it again). The armature I used for the absol was very simplistic. The main wire is the spine/line of motion (though I used an extra inch or so with the head to make a support for the horn) and then I added two more wires to be each pair of legs.

The armature is simple to construct, but very important to get the proportions right before you start thinking about detailing the clay on top or else you'll have to take the clay off again to fix the wire (though it is useful to add on basic shapes of clay at some point to see if you have any wires sticking out past where you want the surface of the clay to be).

OmgWot, Make me one. I love this, make me one and name it Caesar you are the bestestestest dragon in the world  :dance:

I've been working on an art collab with the discord boys the past couple of weeks, and I'm kind of proud of this little color experiment of mine. Slam did the sketch, Flames did the lineart, and as I hinted, I did the color. Something about the skin tone still bothers me a bit. Maybe being surrounded by so much green made it look a little green-ish also (which is weird because I definitely picked it from the oranges and even overlayed it with more red) but whatever. I am now in love with color dodge.

Discord Art Collab
I only did the color!

I think Devola's painting style rubbed off on me. FINALLY, I HAVE OSMOSIS'D SOME SKILL.

Good poseee good poseee  :sheep:

Far, far better than my first attempts.

To be honest I'm surprised you even know how to use a graphics tablet well enough  ;D :D LOL took me a good while to learn drawing well on paper let alone digitally.

I'm seeing attention to detail on the gun as opposed to the fingers and immediately shows me you like your guns, cool to know ;)

Bleach is the best with dramatic close ups. Right now I want to focus on zooming out though to level up my backgrounds a little. It's so hard to show the scale of an explosion without em.

And dude yes that music video is AAA. The cinematography is worthy of an award haha.

 I agree, now that you mentioned it I can see the inspiration in your work. However yes don't forget the backgrounds - although if you're following Kubo style neglecting them won't be so bad lol! He enjoys negative space and likes to contrast white empty space with intense chars, along with his cool cross-hatching style. But yes some panels a la establishing shots (if you're doing panel work) will demand backgrounds as you know already  :dance:

Man I wish I had an idea of how you even get started with Redbubble and Etsy. What were your first works there ?

I only recently jumped on with my Catwoman piece,  but RedBubble took my post down due to WarnerBros ...
But the Goku piece remains.

Very easy just get signed up and upload your digital works, it'll show you what you want to put your stuff on in terms of clothing, phone covers, tea cups, posters etc. The profit margin bites hard though so make sure you adjust that!
