So remember when I used to complain about how my tablet pen was broken for the longest time? Well, one of my partners recently upgraded from a Huion H420 tablet of like the smallest variety, and, well...



It has been entirely too long and I had to do hand-eye exercises for a bit to get readjusted, but I did this quick little doodle with MS Paint. It's not meant to be taken seriously, and I know some of the proportions are just way off. Said partner has also offered to procure a better software for me to put onto my laptop so maybe I can use something like, you know, layers and stuff, but for now at least I can do silly doodles.

Oh wow, after my tablet pen's battery died, I figured I'd also upload something traditional, and it just happened to be MRverse related. The writing along the side ways "With a sigh, I turn my head up / and realize--I am free". I don't think it's from anything in particular, but it seemed to fit. Reminds me of something I saw etched into the side of a toilet stall once.

Mind the bikini-wearing wireframe in the corner. I was just messing around with a body type and figured I'd ink it and give it some clothes...of a sort.




Mostly I'm impressed that I tried a sort of perspective thing at the bottom and it didn't absolutely flop like a sorry sack of s---.

The perspective isn't bad at all. Though it is kinda confusing how exactly her hand is interacting with the paper.

You've definitely drawn her bustier than I've always imagined her though. The original design didn't have much going on so to speak.

Yeah, that hand gave me hell, although changing the angle of the paper probably could've made it way more excusable :sure:

As for the bustiness, it was more accidental, really. I like how it turned out in the profile view with her body turned slightly more than her head, although I can see how in the front view and the perspective drawing they definitely look a little bigger. I guess I was going for the "mom friend" or "grumpy but actually cool librarian" vibe a little too hard.

Good work. The chibi, the perspective and the big one look good. The bikini body is good, But feel like you run out of horizontal space so you squashed the head into the neck.

Yeah, a little bit. I was originally going to leave it in the pencil (which hardly shows up on my camera phone), but I figured "why not?".

It's nice to see myself improving as far as perspective is concerned. I know for a fact that last year I probably wouldn't have been able to pull that off.

The slim lines that actually show up are because I went over the pencil areas with a Staedtler .5mm pigment liner so that they could show up on my camera in the first place. I love them for inking and have a .1mm, a .3mm, two .5mms, a .7mm, and a .8mm. I also have some brush pens from the same company in shades of grey. They're great for moderately cheap materials.

Cute drawings! I love those pens (even if I prefer Mangastudio to ink drawings). Maybe you should use the 1mm pen to give more contrast to the lining. You can vary the largeness of the lines to give more dynamism.

Thank ye. Line variability isn't something I've really given much thought to, since I grew up on ballpoints and pigment liners as opposed to say calligraphy pens or G-nibs and the like. I suppose it would add depth to my lineart, especially since I tend to rely so much on coloring to do that for me. I'll take it into consideration next time I'm out and about the art store.
