Collaboration (Art Exchange) / Re: Lego draws your requests

Gah, you've killed me guys. But here are my attempts.

I'm nowhere near drawing mechs or animals. That's a regimen for another day I'm afraid

Got to agree with you here suuper. She is quite kawaii. May I kidnap?

I sort of forgot what the allowance in the rules was haha. Been a while since this workshop went going.

And yeah I was in a danger zone for a moment there suuper, was totally going to shut down for a week or so because I hit a wall and it wasn't fun. Just powered through it by lowering my expectations haha.

300 cute sketches daaaamn. Noiice!




10 Minute drawing or so. I wonder if I can pimp this out. Would be fun to try

Thankee Echo. And yeah it is. I should do it more.

@suuper gaaaah yes actually i was totally inspired by this back in the day. I should've mentioned it but that's exactly the dude that I always look at. There's even the other one who redraws his kids drawings and they're freaking amazing

Damn, clean lineart makes me see limb mistakes even more haha.

You know what, suuper? Ignore all my big talk. Definitely need to stick in my comfort zone if I'm to get anywhere

Man to be honest I'd love to see your plamo collection. If I had the cash (and passion) I wish I had a shelf full of mech'models and stuff. It'd be practical to reference at least

Comfort zones are the secret to a productive life. I think this sketch survival will only work (for me at least) if the drawings are typical and iterative.

I will most definitely 'cheat' by posting a doodle that I did in class or something... Just to make sure I get something in heheheh.

Thanks suuper.

We pierce the heavens.

Or at least our keyboards.



All shenanigans aside, is it possible to healthily implement learning into something as demanding as a 'sketch everyday' workshop? Ideally, I'd love to think that I could do my regimens by being forced to draw something every day, but I'm not sure.... What are your thoughts?

Holy heck suuper you hit that many days? Might as well join in the fun.

Maybe I should jump into the writing survival workshop too.





Oh gawd 5 years ago. Don't mention such figures to me, and to think we're entering 2020. Damn.

I really like Day 2. Your expressions are approaching the kawaii as heck continuum. Clothing as always is on point.

I've found it better to just info dump whateever I can when I feel like it, otherwise I'm super lazy with my responses. It's what drives me crazy with instant-messaging: A simple 'Hi.' Doesn't cut it for me these days haha.

Yeah it's the ultimate trap isn't it? It's just that Photoshop CS2 doesn't have a way to tweak that pressure curve. Frustrating, but I can deal with it. I'm not ready to try out GIMP, but if it gets too frustrating I might just go ahead. I really want to emulate dat ballpoint pen feeling. Feeling drawn to the medium again.

4K is coming soon! (To be honest will pretty much be there today.) And if I'm reliable then January 10 will be 5K. Wooot. Heck yes.

Thinking about thumbnails again. I might go for another 1,000 thumbnails after this regimen

I'm the last person to be asking boss hahahaha! But here is my step by step process. Suuper is much more refined so look into his things, as for me it's always a question of 'feeling out' the image. I usually start with the head but it doesn't matter really, I add lines to the old lines and try to erase as much as possible so that it's not TOO messy.

Usually if I were with MS Paint I'd be screwed here, but thank goodness for rotate function in photoshop

It's still not refined as one would normally expect, but this is where I tend to stop.



The best way to know what works for you is to work on as many sketches as possible. You can make a 'sketch' folder full of say 10 sketches then forget about them, and work on them later with a fresh mind, adding what you like or don't like.


I've also heard that using large brushes first before smaller brushes helps you focus on motion and sketching rather than details. You should try that out.

Exactly haha.

And yesss your friend. I love it when 'only video games' gives people tangible inspiration and stuff. Cool things.

And thanks suuper. I hope to stick to my guns and really do it. Drawing characters is such an old habit XD

Spoiler


So I snapped off two branches from an old tree on my way back home.

Spoiler

Then used them to draw a scene

I think I'll be doing this more often haha. What about spaceships out of my collection of pens or something? Dunno

Also a bird/lizard dude warrior with a funky coat

Old habits die hard! I immediately drew Lego and Coryn instead of any new Raiders. Also I had this epic idea of making a scene in the MR Pub where Cory and Hasith walk in and it's fun.

I really need to learn to start small, because this was quite stressful.

However, I'm happy that I sat down and tried to panel things. I'm still deciding what to use between an opacity pressure brush or just a general low opacity brush (blurry lines vs clear ones.)

I'm going to go 4koma at most, or just singular panels and hopefully churn out enough comics to get into the groove of drawing Raiders




I think Vio was working on how the Pub interior looks like? Would like to check that out again haha

Woops I made a whoopsie so yeah the map was actually drawn haha.

And thanks suuper! I haven't gotten the chance to do this in a while so this was really fun to be honest. I want to try it out more. And I think I saw a character generator from you somewhere? I'll take it out for a spin. By the way, the timer program is working.

Damn that's not even that huge of an amount of pages. Well I'm hoping I'll get do do closeups of feet, fists and swords to cut that down. Still, it's pretty humbling.

Mangaka are insane. I can't believe how much they pack into a chapter only for it to be read in seconds and then for the reader to complain about how slow the story is. I should really check myself on that sometimes haha.

Moar figures done. Using ballpoint is making me think I should switch my digital brush to something more pressure sensitive rather than fineliner like as it is now .
